Things That Make You Go Hmmmmmm........

Putting together a really great outfit, like rearranging furniture or hanging pictures, is a gooey mystery wrapped in a crunchy riddle surrounded by a nouget of enigma, coated with a chocolatey shell of art. What? It's 6:20 a.m. and I haven't eaten yet. Seriousy though, sometimes I got it, and sometimes I don't and it is directly related to a) how much sleep I've gotten, and 2. how well I feel I'm doing as a parent. Here's a little peek into my psyche, readers. I can pretty much guarantee that those weeks when my blog posts are sparse or recycled, those are the weeks I feel like sh!t or am running on 4 hours of sleep. But last night? Ahhhhh, last night was a full, unbroken night's sleep for the first time in God knows how long. And guess what? When I was deciding what to wear this morning? I came up with 87 different sartorial combinations in a few minutes that I had never done before. I actually had TROUBLE deciding what to wear because I felt like I was choosing between several pieces of NEW CLOTHING when in reality it was all recycled. Unheard of.

It's like that home you visit where you're sitting and mentally rearranging all of the furniture so the feng shui flows better (or maybe that's just me....)

My favorite places to turn when I need a little help? In Style mag (particularly the Your Look Instant Style features), my favorite TV hosts (Stacy London, Cat Deeley, and Jeannie Mai - who incidentally just became a MerciBlahBlah follower on Twitter, which means I have GOT to start tweeting more), or streetstyle blogs, and Lord knows there are a veritable buttload to choose from.

Soooo in summary, to recap, in a slightly longer version, all I'm sayin (or ALLS I'm sayin if you REALLY want to work my last nerve) is that if I need a lil inspiration, I just hop on the information superhighway and take a cruise round the blogosphere. And if one of the lovely ladies mentioned above happens to google herself and come across our humble blog, and wants to offer me a job writing HILARIOUS bits for them, well, I wouldn't kick any of them out of bed for eating crackers. And if they throw in a trip to California or NYC every once in a while to meet the suits, that's fine too.



You know where this is going. Don't tell me about your new ensembles w/o photographic evidence.
