Selena Gomez in Wildfox Couture in Tarzana

Posted on February 05, 2014

Selena must’ve been the next girl on the list.

Selena Gomez meets a friend for lunch at Cici’s Pizza Buffet in Tarzana, California wearing a Wildfox Couture sweater paired with Steve Madden ‘Topangaa’ booties

Wildfox Couture ‘Seeing Stars Lennon’ Sweater

Miley and Tay already had their turn.

Is it the same sweater, and they’re all just passing it around to each other? Is it like a game of “Hot Potato” where you have to make sure you’re not the one wearing it when it unravels completely and falls to the floor in a heap of yarn? Or are they all in a secret society and they’re sending some sort of message? Are they witches?

Nah. Trend-followers, the lot of them. They all wore it exactly the same way, with super-short shorts. Still, it’s a cute sweater for a young gal to wear on a casual day. We can’t blame any of them for wanting to wear it.

    I’d believe that Selena borrowed it from Taylor. Aren’t they BFF’s? Honestly, I wish this sweater would go away.

    • Anna

      I guess it’s their version of the friendship bracelet. If you don’t get to wear and be photographed in the sweater, then you know they’re mean-girling you.

      • Saturnine

        Hot potato and now friendship bracelet. Double snort.

          I do like it best on Selena.

          Very good!
          CiCi’s Pizza Buffet??? Well, at least she isn’t a snob about restaurants. Yuck.

      Said the same thing! I’d kind of believe it, aren’t all of them close friends?

      • CatherineRhodes

        That’s really funny.

  • Diego!

    Honey, no. We already told Miley and Tay this is a NO GO. Didn’t you hear us? Now, throw it into the garbage basket.

  • Saturnine

    “Hot potato” made me snort coffee. I’d love to wear that sweater, but (as a not-so-young gal) with skinny jeans and boots.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    Given how bulky the “hem” of the sweater is, I don’t think pairing it with demin shorts is the best styling

    • Sarah

      Alas, I do not think those are denim. Selena stole some indigo dyed lingerie tap pants from Vanessa Hudgens, it would appear.

  • yethica

    Sisterhood of the Traveling Sweater? Anyone?

    • yethica

      (Catherine beat me to it… goofy senses of humor UNITE!)

      • marlie

        I went to the signing with @yethica last night – we missed you there! It was so much fun. Hopefully the book tour will loop back around!

        • And we’re here to say that marlie is fabulous, adorable and MUCH younger than we thought she was. Thank you for coming out, doll!

          • I don’t know if I am more jealous of her for meeting you or you for meeting her!

          • marlie

            That’s so sweet! I had such a good time – you gents are even funnier and more charming in person!

          • @Biting Panda

            You are such a rockstar! I am totes jelly!!!!! (that’s right, so jealous i am back to being a teenager)

        • MilaXX

          I saw the pictures. So jealous! I’m keeping my eye out for East coast signings. Can’t make NYC, but Dc might be a possibility. I can crash/visit with family. It just depends on mother nature.

    • LJCdoc

      Doh. Should have read the comments before I copied yours almost verbatim without knowing it.

  • SewingSiren

    I like the moth holes . It reminds me of the Commes des Garcons “lace” sweater from 1982 or so.

    • Trent

      Yes! Why didn’t I save all my ratty 80’s, moth-eaten sweaters? I would have been in style this year…

  • sagecreek

    Honestly, it just reminds me of a Macy’s ad. Which I guess is not what any of these gals was aiming at.

  • SugarSnap108

    The long sweater/short-shorts combo will never make sense to me. I am unyielding on this point.

    I do like that she’s lunching at the pizza buffet, though.

    • Bridget Smith

      Temperature-wise, it’s not that different from short sleeves & long pants. I actually found it really great while on vacation in Maine this past summer: hot days called for shorts with a t-shirt, and then when it got chilly at night I could throw on a long, light sweater and be comfortable.

      But style-wise may be a different matter. 🙂 I just really hate the shorts she’s wearing here.

      • SugarSnap108

        Yeah, I don’t get it from a style standpoint. When I’m out and about, I like it to be very clear that I am, in fact, wearing more than a sweater.

        • Bridget Smith

          OH, agreed! I get it as a basic idea of an outfit, but your shorts should still be VISIBLE. That’s why I haven’t been able to fully sign off on the way any of these girls have worn it.

  • Guest

    My favorite part of this is that she went to lunch at a CiCi’s

    • dalgirl

      Me, too! Perfect for a “Stars-they’re just like us!” blurb. I haven’t been to one, though.

  • jw_ny

    oh…I just can’t stand booties with shorts, or dresses too for that matter.

  • Anna

    Lorde, and then Demi Lovato will be wearing it next.

    • Bexxx

      Lorde takes herself way too seriously to wear this. But if it were black and floor-length….

      • Anna

        I’m sure you’re right. I based my hypothesis on the girl shit surrounding their whole crew (which I find endlessly entertaining), rather than any actual knowledge of Lorde’s personal style.

        • demidaemon

          I though Lorde and Selena were in a girl fight?

          • Anna

            That’s what I hear. But Lorde and Tay Tay are apparently buddies. For now.

        • ballerinawithagun

          Lorde, much to my chagrin, just said that she and Tay are besties…I thought Royals was genius.

          • demidaemon

            DRAMA. 😉 Interesting since I thought Selena and Tay were besties. Or is that Selna and Demi L. So hard to keep track.

          • Anna

            I know. But I hear she criticized her first, I guess they talked it out. But then she moved onto Selena! Ah, the high school cafeteria that is Hollywood…

        • girliecue

          I thought Tay and Emma Stone were bff’s. Or was that last week?

          • Anna

            I think they’re still pretty tight. But yeah, who the hell knows.

  • 3boysful

    Heck with the ratty sweater–I want her legs.

  • zenobar

    I want her legs. Also, a pizza buffet.

    • suzq

      Sadly, her legs and a pizza buffet often do not go together without her workout routine.

  • MilaXX

    Don’t forget Jessica Simpson also wore it. It’s like Sisterhood of the Traveling Ripped Sweater.

  • HM3

    Ugh. This sweater!!! Grrr…

    • sojourneryouth

      HATE this sweater, and the very idea of paying $200 for something that looks worn. Having at times had to wear worn clothes, I am unamused.

      • Sarah

        PREACH. I will wear stuff that is worn, because I worn it. Maybe I should sell that stuff…

  • HM3

    Perhaps all these girls are simply being mauled by dogs?

  • Congrats on her legs, but calling that sweater couture makes my teeth itch.

    • Bridget Smith

      Just as Couture as Juicy.

      • *exactly*

      • veleri

        Thank you for saying that.

  • Sara Hottman

    Odd that a mostly synthetic sweater designed to look ratty is so popular. Baggy cashmere? Count me in. Baggy acrylic and nylon? Why?

    • I am a fibre snob. I HATE seeing all these cute sweaters that turn out to be acrylic. Acrylic smells like a hamster cage after an hour!

      • i absolutely cannot abide acrylic. Makes my skin crawl.

  • Kimberly Page

    Didn’t Jessica Simpson beat them all to it?

  • Cheryl

    Normally, I wouldn’t like the big sweater and shorts combo, but man alive that girl has some great legs, so I don’t blame her for showing them off. Fantastic calves.

  • AzSportsGirl

    I do like the more rust color of Selena’s and the booties. Only girls of a certain age (under 25) should wear those short shorts.

  • shopgirl716

    How in the world did the paparazzi find Selena Gomez at a CiCi’s pizza in Tarzana? Were they following her or did someone call them? And what was she doing at CiCi’s pizza anyway? Eating lettuce from the tiny salad bar? I know I’m past my trendy clothes prime but I think the sweater looks like a puppy got after it after Miley left it on the floor.

    • NJtoLAMary

      That’s what I thought. What was she doing there and who was there to take a picture?

  • Imasewsure

    I hate fake distressed looks but I have to say I’ve loved this sweater on all of our darling little starlets, including Ms Selena. Love the shorts, love the booties too. She’s adorable!

  • LeelaST

    Still don’t like the unraveled-ness. Waiting for the tattered chic/hole-y jeans thing to go away.

  • boweryboy

    Hate the booties. Such a casual look like this calls for much more casual shoes. At least Mily and Tay got that part right.

  • tired_mommy

    Any bets on where it will end up next? Vanessa Hudgens?

  • KinoEye

    I don’t understand the repeated logic of pairing this with tiny shorts. It’s a cute sweater, despite the fact that it’s unraveling. If it were mine I would almost always pair it with a skinny jean or pant. With the shorts, it looks like you aren’t wearing anything on the bottom.

  • marlie

    I still hate this sweater. It looks like the moths got to it. And I’m also bugged by tops that are longer than the shorts.

  • therealkuri

    I kind of feel like this sweater should have either the instarsia star pattern OR the dropped stitches at the hems. Both seems like too much to me.

  • geans

    Mindy Kailing’s character’s worn this in red and blue on her show!
    Eventually we’ll all get a try, ladies.

    • demidaemon

      Do you really want to?

  • lobsterlen

    Selena could kill someone with those calves.

  • Sarah Thomas

    That’s a kind of hilariously normal place for a pop star to meet someone for lunch. She gets my endorsement for that alone.

  • Gatto Nero

    Just can’t get behind the shredded sweater nonsense.
    And especially not with a short that disappears under it.

  • Danielle

    This sweater makes me stabby.

  • sweetlilvoice

    I love that she was going to Cici’s. We don’t have that restaurant where I live but it looks pretty casual. It’s a place normal people would eat.

  • Danielle

    Also are we not going to talk about how a girl with millions of dollars still eats at CiCis? Girl after my own heart.

  • HeatherMcIlrath

    it kind of looks like her dingy, victorian bloomers are peeking out. sorry, selena, but i would have skipped the lacy short-shorts.

  • This brings out the 90s in me. Sing it with me kittens!:
    If you want to destroy my sweater,
    Just hold this thread as I walk away. As I walk away!
    Watch me unravel, I’ll soon be naked.
    Lying on the floor, Lying on the floor! I’ve come undone.

    • marlie

      Not gonna lie, I listened to Weezer nonstop during my 1-hour drive home the other day. it was exactly what I needed to perk me up!

      • It’s great car music!

        • kimmeister

          In 2007, my then-roommate and I went on vacation to New Zealand and Oz. In NZ, we rented a car (first and only experience driving on the left!), and when we were out in the boonies on the way to go explore some caves, we lost all radio reception. So, we took to singing a capella every Weezer and Ozma song we could think of. Good times.

    • Yes! And how has no one remarked upon the fact that she’s sporting A BACKPACK.
      1994 IN THE HOUSE!!!

  • frannyprof

    Let’s focus on what’s important here: She was at Cici’s Pizza Buffet. Essentially like Golden Corral, Homestyle, etc. The WalMarts of the restaurant world.

    • KT

      Thank you for noting that. I couldn’t care less about her, but I suddenly respect her so much more for this completely unpretentious lunch choice… amazing

  • Reminds me of that episode of Daria where Stacey and Tiffany buy the same dress and have to decide who gets to keep it. The idea of alternating days is proposed until Sandy vetoes based on the inevitability of their “enemies” spreading the rumor that they’re sharing the same dress. Sandy would be the type to consider fashion bloggers her enemies when she inevitably became a reality tv star.

    Sorry, sleep-deprived rambling based on the puppy deciding 4am was the time to wake up.

  • LJCdoc

    Sisterhood of the travelling shredded sweater.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      That’s exactly what I was gonna say.

  • demidaemon

    I still HATE this sweater. So stupid. I can’t even comment on the overall look because of it.

  • nannypoo

    I hate it. But aren’t she and Tay BFFs? I think I read that somewhere. If so, maybe it is the same actual sweater.

  • amf0001

    I can’t comment on the sweater, because I’m too busy looking at her gorgeous legs. Doesn’t she just have the best muscle tone?!

    • Killer calves! You don’t get muscles like that without some work.

  • andi56

    I can’t look at this sweater without thinking of UT Austin. I almost expect her to hook her fingers into horns. I think they’re all sharing the sweater, too.

  • sunflower

    I hate this sweater. I’m in their age range and would never wear this. It looks like it got ruined by the washing machine or chewed up by the dog. Why are they so crazy over this sweater??

  • kckris

    Anyone know the sunglasses she’s wearing???

  • Monabel

    It was a cute sweater before the raveling.

  • Qitkat

    I think this sweater got fought over at the Kitten Bowl.
    Also today a well-meaning store clerk tried to sell me a pair of already ripped jeans. I am 67 people. Are you kidding me? I only wear ripped jeans if I did the deed myself!

  • MannahattaMamma

    All I can say is that girl has some killer muscles in her calves. Ah youth

  • It’s like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Sweater…

  • anotherkate

    I actually love the sweater itself, but I hate that it is apparently being worn deliberately for photo attention. Like, it’s kind of cute when a group of friends ends up wearing the same thing, but it ceases to be cute when the brand has gifted them with the same thing, for the express purpose of garnering publicity.
