But today it really IS navy, Chris.
...from Project Runway. His look last week was Kick. Azz.
I love love love how the pop-art print/pattern he created was like the Andy Warhol/Factory version of an old old olllllllld school brocade jacket:
A to the M to the Y,
Me again. Seth Aaron is the adorable doppleganger of Jeffrey Sebilius from seasons past, but Anthony? For the love of Mrs. Butterworth, I laughed AND cried when he was leaving last week. Hands down the classiest, sweetest, funniest goodbye speech EVAH.

Me. I'm breaking the "no faces" rule with a goofy looking at phone selfie to show some of you (and you know who you are) that I dared the RED LIP today. Ignore the fact that it looks kinda magenta in these photos and that whole face one looks like I have on more makeup than I do. I did it. Normally I don't make it out of the house in red lips. I'm growing up. Sniff sniff. P.S. I'm feeling kinda frisky in my lipstick. We may have created a monster. Merci, Ames
Okay, really it's ebony and ivory...side by side on my...
Tux Deluxe Jacket: Priorities (Dillards)
Shirt: AT Loft
Distressed jeans: Old Navy
Jewries: F21 ring and earrings, TJ Maxx Necklace and random store bracelets
Plus some black platform booties you can't see, but they are there. I only go barefoot to the grocery store.
Awwwww - you purty. The red lookth GOOD on you. Is it the same one Gina had you try on at Ladieth Night?

Mayhaps it's the gorgeous sunshine today? Mayhaps it's all of the lovely nude-hued spring fashions popping up everywhere you turn? Whatever the case, I have it in a bad way this day for some dainty little frocks.
Labels: Stuff We Would Kiss On The Mouf
Why don't we go with a little Random Inspiration for a Monday morning after two nights of having a random triplet join us in bed in the middle of the night for various reasons and then lay there are fart around for 2 hours. Makes for a GREAT way to start the work week when one has to get up at 5:30 a.m.
I'll tell you what I'd like for spring - some cool little dress with a photo print on it, like this one from Wholesome Fashion, or the shirt I had in 1977 with a photo print of a little boy kissing a little girl in the park. I'm not choosy.

I am also happy to report, girl likes her hats, particularly this Elmer Fudd number that she wears quite frequently. If she cannot get her hands on an actual hat at a given moment, she will take whatever she finds and put it on her head. I am proud to say she is a fashionista already at 22 months.
Funny story about them - my friend Natty Lite read their tarot cards for $hits and giggles one day, and here are the major cards she drew for each one: Gavin = The Lover; Simon = The Devil; Scarlett = The High Priestess. Pretty amazing, and exactly on target.
Anyhoozle - hope you enjoyed this trip down Trip Lane. Happy Friday!
Let's talk art again, shall we? I'm so artsy fartsy. Okay, maybe I'm just fartsy (NO COMMENTS FROM THE PEANUT GALLERY, AMY), but still, I loves me some cool artwork all up in my grill. Enjoy some wif me.

Thank you to Design Darling, who pointed out in the Chair Porn post that the room in the "freaking awesome patent leather chair" photo was done by designer Palmer Weiss. I moseyed over to her sight, and what to my wondering eye did appear but a myriad of freaking awesome rooms with nary a reindeer.
Palmer Weiss, a designer originally from Charleston, South Carolina (one of my favorite cities) who now resides in San Fran works her mojo in ways that, to me, evoke California in the 1970s in the coolest, most modern and hip way imaginable. Enjoy.
Aforementioned freaking awesome patent leather chair.
This room made me gasp out loud when I saw it. Are you kidding me? That amazing artwork? The sunny, bananas cool pattern on the DINETTE??? Flipping sweet mid-century mod wire chairs and an homage to the Jetsons pendant light? GASP!!!
I want to roll around naked on that carpet and then steal that orange and white chair when the owner's come home and catch me.
Love that Jonathan Adler looking rug. I'm a sucka for someone who can mix patterns well, and those lamps? Hello, luvahs.
Ch-ch-check it out - the backside of the photo above this one. A bee-you-ti-ful mid century credenza and a teeny tiny bentwood table for the Trips? When do we move in????
Another view of the gorgeousness that is the dining room. Swoon. Someone grab my Depends.

If this keeps up, Shan, we have to name this feature. Or not. I'm sure I'll be over it in about a week or 10. I mean, we both know what happened with our My Style Diary pages of yesteryear.
Until then, today's installment of more bad phone photos in work bathroom.
Shame you can't see the whole thing. Let me set the scene....picture it if you will.
Vintage resale robe? Smoking Jacket? Giant's pajama top? Whatever the case, the sleeves are rolled up a tons and it's about down to my knees. AND it was exactly 75 cents. $1.00 rack on 25% day. Don't hate the playa.
Black ruffle neck shift dress I've had for ages underneath, with black leggings and shoes of Midas. F21 jewelry layered up...balls...te he. Bracelets I just remembered I tossed in my purse as I look at this. Must pull those out and adorn my wrists.
All I know is that I am COMFORTABLE today. Too bad I don't have time for a car nap.
This is what you get when you try to take photos of yourself at 6 in the a.m. - it's as if a slightly drunk Oompa Loopma or a Munchkin is taking your photo.
Deets: White tux jacket, The Limited; Mossimo skinnies, Tar-jay; grey burnout tank, F21; Shoes, ZooShoo from me sis

Sheesh - if you're going to hound me, I'll post the really crappy headless shots of moi in my new kimono-esque purple and black modified leopard print giant sleeved blouse I scored yesterday at Macy's. Wearing it over my purple and black ombre Kensi dress so that it just looks like a black sequin skirt, booties from eBay, thrifted lion chain belt, and Rachel Roy ginormous purple ring. Enjoy.
Standing like I have to pee......
I know, I know - I'm standing like a dork, but I was TRYING to show the blousieness of said giant sleeves. Sue me!!
Go on with your bad self, Macy's. That totes mcgoats looks vintage. My eyes are happy.
Which is why I saved this for this week. I have this huge fear of being confused with a holiday outfit wearer.
I'm not even joking a little when I tell you again, Shaaaaaannnnnnnaaaaaan: Don't make me do this alone on here because I'll look like a dbag.
Ladieth Tuxedo Suit: Resale score of all scores that didn't need one stitch of alterations. Not even in the length. That is RARE when you are 5'3". Thank you petite section woman that decided to get rid of this little gem. Why you did, I do not know b/c it's gonna live forever, like FAME, up in here.
Green Chest Lasagna (per my husband) blouse of goodness: Bday present from Shan. Loves.
Earrings and Shoes: F21. Starter oxford/brogues to see if I want to invest in a more spendy pair. I do. I'm sold. Taking suggestions on super comfy ones, if you have.
Peacock Ring: ANOTHER bday present. From my non-blogging bff, Ginger, (well she had one for her daughter but we won't talk about that, will we GINGER?) who picks out really awesome rings and also has really good taste in friends, duh.
We can't wait to see what Shan wore today, can we kids? I'm not above peer pressure.
