regina george presents: a Mean Girls birthday party
My birthday was on April 25, but because it fell on the Monday after Easter weekend, I decided to have my party yesterday. This turned out to be a pretty great decision because instead of it being gross any rainy like the last, oh, I don’t know… 5 years?, it was springy and 69° here in Chicago. Unbelievable!
Also a great decision? I decided to make my party Mean Girls-themed. Yes, theme parties can be cheesy, but I think they’re fun, and I knew my friends would too.
So of course I had to dress in my best Queen Bee Regina George ensemble:
A little bit dramatic – who, me?
After searching the web and finding nothing but crap on CafePress and the like, I ended up making my own Regina “A Little Bit Dramatic” tee on a website my last roommate told me about called CustomizedGirl. I went with the Junior Fit Sheer Longer Scoop Neck Tee in a size L, and – if I’m doing this correctly – you should be able to view, edit, or order my design here. Cardigan is Mossimo from Target; skirt is Tracy Evans Limited. I have no idea where I got the skirt and little recollection as to why, but I got it in college, so I think that probably explains most of it.
Sex-ay black patent cage heels: Söfft.
I grabbed my “C” charm necklace off Amazon (and put it on a better chain), and I also wore my pretty new Lia Sophia “Paris Lights” bracelet that I got as a present from my friends Teri and Leah. Love! Nails: Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in 530 Back to the Fuchsia.
If you’re looking to have your own Mean Girls party, I have a few more suggestions.
1. Make your own Burn Book.
I made mine on Shutterfly. Let your guests do the rest! (But keep it cute.)
2. Bring some little sticker gems, like these from Target. Apply to the décolletage of your guests.
For added accuracy, invite friends whose names begin with K!
And of course…
3. Make your own Kalteen bars.
You never get a great view of the Kalteen bars in the movie, so this just my rough interpretation – with some Google-translated Swedish to boot. If you’d like to print your own stickers, click here to download my pdf (PrintWorks #00680 / Avery 5395 Name Badge Labels). And enjoy!
