It's Arrested Development

Blazer: Hot Topic (2006)// Tshirt: Target// Skirt, belt, bag: F21// Tights: ModCloth// Flats: Old Navy// Houndstooth Heels (I changed shoes): Lulu's// Bowler hat: Urban Outfitters
This Bluth's Frozen Banana t-shirt is the first thing I bought for myself in what feels like a lifetime. I squealed like a preteen watching a new Justin Bieber video when I saw this shirt in the mens section of Target. It fits like pajama-wear on my frame, but I made do and tucked this baby into a velvet miniskirt for a night of bartending. I was hoping it might attract other Arrested Development fans and encourage some exchanging of favorite Tobias or Gob quotes. It didn't. I overheard two douchebags talking about the banana on my shirt, asking each other about what I really had on my mind, and then bro-laughing when one of them said the word that rhymes with dock, but starts with a C. I finished pouring their drinks and interrupted their boys-locker-room-esque chatter with a simple "were y'all just talking about my shirt?" Their smiles faded and their mouths dropped as they quickly shook their heads and said, "noooo, of course not." (They looked so caught and pathetic.) I told them that penises were far from my mind and that they should spend more time catching up on the brilliance that is Arrested Development and less time looking for phallic correlations in everyday t-shirt designs. One of them spent the rest of the night trying to kiss my ass with small talk each time he came up to the bar, and the other avoided me like the plague, having his friends order his drinks for him. ha!
If you're a fellow Arrested Development mega-fan, please leave one of your favorite quotes in the comments :)  And ermergerrrd, who's excited for the NEW season beginning early next year?!! I am, I am!

  1. I LOVE Arrested Development! That tee is awesome - I wish tees like that were as easy to get hold of in the UK. No quotes spring to mind though, but that is probably because I only just woke up!

    I have a few tees that may be considered similar to that one from Teefury (but they tend to be 'mash up' tees that combine different films/tv shows etc) and I always wonder how to style them a bit more feminine than a pair of jeans and ballet flats... you have definitely inspired me with that outfit!

    1. Do y'all have Targets in the UK?? Oh, I hope that's not a silly question. :) I would recommend that you could order the tee online but I've looked and for some reason it's not coming up. But thank you for your sweet compliment! I'm super happy to have been able to inspire an outfit out of oversized graphic tees! hehe :D

  2. First, Hi! I've missed talking to you! and thanks for checking on me!
    Second, way to go GIRL! Tell those boys off!
    Unfortunately, I'm caught up in the web that is The Real Housewives drama and have not watched anything else...
    Love the tee and the cute errr ... "memory" is has created.
    How cooky is that glass?? hahaha!
    So I have to mention this! What is up with all those boxes on your wall? I know you don't need ALL that much security, right? (Actually had a momentary vision of them framed up! haha)
    So great to be "talking" to you again!


    XOXO Dana

    1. Awww I've missed you mass amounts, Dana!!!! I'm so glad you're back now. Don't go disappearing on me anymore ;) At least not for a couple weeks.
      Oh, you will definitely know one thing about me - no one is going to talk about me right in front of me and not get asked about it! I was like, "Gah! I can totally hear these jerks" as I was pouring those drinks. Rudeness.
      You like my martini glass? They're neato, huh? I think I picked these up at Marshall's or Ross or something for like $4. Pretty much a steal and I love the curvy stem of the glass. It's much easier for me to grip this way. I love martinis and martini glasses but man do I have to really concentrate not to spill or have it tip too much to one side with those skinny stems. This one's solid. No spills here! :)
      Hahahaha no you didn't call out our boxes! Well, let's see. One is the a/c box, the other is the speaker box so we can talk to people outside that are ringing our doorbell, and the other is the house alarm! Whew! That is a lot.
      Thanks for your always-entertaining style comments, love! ♥

  3. dont hate me but I've never seen Arrested Development. I've always meant to watch it but it just hasnt happened. I will get on that asap. Props to you for calling those guys out. Why must guys be so immature? All I see is a cute outfit. That said, I do tend to giggle when I'm sitting at a light behind a truck with super duty on the back. I guess I'm kinda immature too.

    1. First of all, I could never hate you. Soul sisters, remember? Fo' life. Now, that being said, get your ass to watching it, like, yesterday!! That's an order. I seriously know that as soon as you do watch the first two or three episodes you're gonna be like, "what the fudge was I waiting for? Why didn't I just listen to my instinct? Roni is the shit."
      And as I texted you, I'm not at all free of immaturity and perverse jokes for that matter, I just wanted to come across as a snooty biatch who didn't put up with that from some ol' boys. You know. :)

  4. Holy crap do they still have them?!?!?! I want that shirt so bad now. LOVE the show. Geez, I would have loved to see you confront those boys. You're such a badass.

      I can totally see us rocking these on our first meet up. hahaha
      P.s. I DIED LAUGHING at your Tobias quote. That's actually one that I say almost daily, if not every other day. Freakin' brilliant!

    1. I really have no idea how this happens. Especially since I have so many hat days, i.e. bad hair days. ;) But thank you, Minja!

  7. You're so cool with your smart replies! :) I haven't actually seen Arrested Development but my friend and her husband are obsessed with it and quote it all the time. They usually make these jokes and then explain them after so I know it's from Arrested Development!

    1. Hehe, I try. They come to me when I don't want to be too bitchy to someone who has just been a douche, but want to be snobby enough that it puts them in their place and perhaps makes them re-think being dbags in the first place. :)
      I hope you get around to watching the show soon! It's sooo wonderful. Your friends sound like cool peeps. :)

  8. I have an ever growing list of series and sitcoms I want to catch up on, and Arrested Development is on my back burner. It sounds so funny! I'm glad you stood up for your self and showed those guys what was up :D I honestly would have bought that banana shirt and would have no idea that it was from Arrested Development. Totally cute! Aaaaand ErrMehGerrrrd! I can't believe you wrote Errmehgerrd!!!! LOL! My wife and I go around saying that all the time. At first I had to look it up and find out where the heck that saying came from (there's a YouTube video explanation of course) and I laughed my ass off! Anyway, high five on the ball bashing :) Silly rude boys. I hope they gave you a good tip.

    1. Giirrrrl, what are you waiting for? Get on that! You won't regret it. I preach the word of Arrested Development and it makes me super happy when I put people onto the show that never got around to watching it and then they're just as obsessed with it as me. I'm gonna wait till you give me that reason to gloat. hehehe
      I always say "errmerrgerrrd" with those friends that you saw in that Team Vegas post. I have a certain kind of lingo I speak with certain groups of close friends. That happens to be the way me and that group of friends talk to one another. It's pretty hilarious to listen to us. I wanna record our convos one day. I bet it'd sound ridick!
      High five right back at ya!

  10. AD is only the most genius show to ever be on television. Even though the show has been off the air for around 5 years now, I still preach the gospel of AD to peeps a few times a week at least. In fact, Europe's The "Final Countdown" is my alarm clock ringtone. So here are some of my fav quotes, just off the top of my head.

    Buster: "Be right out! And maybe when I come back we can talk about, making...that...love."
    Tobias: " I just blue myself."
    Tobias: "I'm afraid I prematurely shot my wad on was supposed to be a dry run, and it seems I have a bit of a mess on my hands."
    Buster: "I'm a monsterrrrr!"
    Gob: "But where'd the lighter fluid come from?"
    Tobias: "You blow hard."
    And finally, one from George a.k.a. Pop Pop:
    "There's always money in the Banana Stand!!"

    1. Conway!! So great to hear from you on my little bloggy. Was it you that introduced me to AD? I don't remember anymore. Someone did. Oh, wait, it was my friend Flowers back in Vegas and then you told me how obsessed you were with it. And then I put Andy on to it this summer. He's addicted now too, obviously.
      Thank you for the quotes that had me LOL'ing as I read along and pictured the scenes from the show. The third quote down (from Tobias) is actually my second favorite quote from AD; the first being also from Tobias. It's from the "anal-rapist" scene! Bahahah I can't even think about it right now without laughing and I'm in the library at school.
      I actually watch a few episodes every week when I get home from school. It calms me down after a long day. A couple of your quotes were from episodes I happened to rewatch this past Monday or Tuesday. :)
      Have a great week, old friend.

    1. Duuuude yesssss!!!!! I am SO SO SO excited! Too bad you live so far away, I'd say we should get together for the first episode next year. I'm definitely going to do like an Arrested Development screening party...with just Mikey and I. None of my friends in Jersey watch it. haha
      No prob. Putting dudes in their places is what I do ;)

  12. Oh, what an adorable purse, skirt, belt and shoes! I have mustard tights too. I have to go find them now since fall is soon arriving. Even though it's really not in San Diego. It's still in the high 70's and low 80's. BOOOO! I love silly t-shirts too. I use to have so many of them. But that's why I started fashion blogging. To dress more like a girl and experiment with my personal style, which use to be jeans and a t-shirt mostly. It's funny because I've completely done a 360- or is it 180? Anyways, I wear mostly skirts and dresses?! Who would have ever thunk?! And I just find your style so inspiring by the way! -Jessica L

    1. Thanks, Jessica! I am addicted to these mustard tights. I wear them entirely too much. I should probably just buy a second pair as I'm sure these will get run through eventually. I already have a small run in them, but I've been trucking on. :) Oh, I wish I had your San Diego weather right now. It gets much too cold too fast here. Bleh.
      Dude, I used to be the same way! Band tees and ripped up jeans, oh, and converse or skater shoes every day! I never even carried a purse! haha Funny how things change and you get girlier as you get older. (But it's 180 in case you were really wondering ;))
      Thank you so much for the kind words, doll! They just made my day!

  15. You are such a Badass! Tehehehe!!!! I would never in my life have the courage (unless some liquid courage was in my system...) to set those guys straight. You go girl!! That top is AMAZING!! I am super excited for the show to start back up. I don't have cable though so I will need to find a way to watch it. I also really need to rewatch all episodes.

    1. I am, aren't I? ;)
      Oh, yeah dude. Liquid is unnecessary to keep this mouth from going off when I hear things being said behind my back. I just don't even think about it. I just confront. haha
      Do you have even basic cable? I think it should be on there. What was it on? ABC? I forget.
      Oooh, do you and Brian watch Sons of Anarchy? I'll just text you in case you don't see it. I feel like Brian might watch it, I dunno why I think that - the long hair?? Hahah But that show is SO addicting!
