WWD: EXCUSE ME, Sir?????!!!

Here's another look I saw in In Style mag eons ago that I knew I wanted to knock off. I love love LOOOOOVE it. Thank you Kate Bosworth.

And here's my spin on it:
I wish my pants were not quite so baggy, but ah well, whaddaya gonna do? All in all, I think it's a pretty damn good likeness, no?
Speaking of Grover Cleveland, what would you IMMEDIATELY think if I were to say the word "dingle?" Mmm-hmmmm - BERRY, right? And then you would probably giggle (or maybe that's just me). 
Last week I was pulling up to an estate sale, and parked in front of the house was a PT Cruiser with the license plate "DINGLE." Seriously? That's what you're gonna go with? DINGLE???? And just to make sure other driver's knew exactly who the dingle was, there was also a sticker above the plate that read "Mr. Dingle's PT."
I saw the man getting in when I left, and he was an older gentleman, so I can only assume he has no idea what the term "dingleberry" actually means. For reals though, hasn't that term been around since my grandma fell off her dinosaur? I MEAN REALLY. Mr. Dingle's PT????? Blech.
Does anyone else NOT know what that term means? I almost felt like it was my civic duty to pull him aside before he got in and explain it, but I decided against it. I mean, I didn't want to embarrass him anymore than he already embarrassed himself. 

P.S.
A great big ole THANK YOU to Miz November Grey, who just sent me a Jouer makeup kit that I won in a giveaway on  her blog. Got it yesterday and can't wait to use it this morning. I love love LOVE the soft, neutral palette, and the lipgloss? Pure nude perfection.


Thank you, Miz Thang!

You did an excellent job on the outfit - looks great! BTW, one of this gal's pet peeves is personalized license plates. I do drive a PT Cruiser and it's not a shock that the dude was old. My husband calls my car an "old person" car. Well it didn't seem that way when I bought it 11 years ago. He won't even sit in it - lol!

Your inspired outfit is perfect! I love it. I have an audi and once thought i'd get a vanity license plate that said haudi, but then I thought, what if people think I mean hottie instead of howdy. If they thought the former, that would be douchey. So, I scrapped the whole idea.

Jenny, Jenny - I personally like PT Cruisers, old people car or not. It's the dinglicious license plate I take issue with. that's funny that your hubs won't sit in yours!!

Julie - danke, mama! Hey, you may have just hit on something - the perfect personalized plate? DOUCHEY.

LOVES!!
