Robin Thicke's “Blurred Lines” must have influenced the latest take on Burberry's classic raincoat for fall.
Sorry, but I just don't get it... it's all too blurred.
Looks like these young designers got it.
Again: “I just don't get it”.
Fall 2014 is a combination of:
Madonna meets a bullfighter
Military khaki strips down with zipped down Hawaiian botanicals
Jane Goodall morphs with Frida Kahlo
How about this “you've got to be kidding me” ensemble.
Layering a jewel embellished winter satin cocktail dress over a summer polished cotton...
“I made it out of vintage curtains” house dress. Even the model looks confused.
For now, summer's still here and it's still a “Fleurs Galore” time of year.
I painted these white jeans and shaped a flower necklace out of kids clay.
This kids clay saved my breakfast plate. I simply filled in the hole, baked it for a few minutes and painted it with clear nail polish. Talent not necessary and..... Sculpey comes in a bazillion colors.
OK I give up...or nearly gave up RE: these legs.
Look closer... it's a man's arm! This ad campaign is showing up everywhere.
“I just don't get it”.
This fall...you'll be seeing tassels on purses, shoes, jewelry... tassels will be trimming every accessory imaginable . “Get thee to the fabric store”!
Pick out a few feet of tassels and start updating: pant hems, clutch bags, belts
...trim away like your closet is a Christmas tree.
I'm going to continue to resist these sandals... even when they hit the sale racks in a few weeks. Maybe because they remind me of the Mexican huaraches with the tire soles that I resisted years ago. They may be “trending” but they won't be treading lightly on my little pedicured feet: pass... no thanks... nada pour moi.
On the other hand...or foot... Adidas slip-ons are trending for Fall and have a soft spot in my heart. My sons bought this pair of “after soccer” Adidas for me... 25+ years ago! Who-da -thought they'd be in Vogue today.
The best way to keep your champagne bubbling for a week.
Simply drop a silver spoon into the bottle & let it dangle away. Cheers!
“Keep a water bottle cool” ice cube trays have another cool use:
swizzle sticks... just add a few lime slices!
I might just purchase this perfume to go with my '60s... “couldn't toss it out” blouse.
Bummer, I didn't see: "figure included" on the perfume bottle label.
Legos are the “IT-Fashionista” toy... and in supermarkets: Lego-like candy too!
From Marc Jacobs doll like model's chemise to miss-matched stripes, as we leave summer and head into fall, soft pink will have a soft spot light in the boutiques.
There's a 50/50 chance... if it's in the magazines... you'll find it in your closet.
magazine my closet
magazine my closet
magazine my closet
Cashmere sweater full of holes: check. Put it in the washer and dryer: check.
With my handy glue gun... make a travel pillow, a pair of house slippers & a baby cap: check.
“When yer a hammer... everything is a nail” . I make clip earring out of coins, champagne tops, buttons... even “eat'em up fast” chocolate disks from The Town and Country Club! If you usually wear pierced earrings: “get thee to a hobby shop” and glue a few clips on to... practically anything!
I think they should be re-named: “flutterbys”... don't you?
They are flying through every designer jewelry store in the country.
One is real... mine are faux-bulous-n-fun.
Back to the shoe department: If you'd like to trip-n-twirl into the night in a pair of these “Bojangles expensive mirror ball” boots... just glue a bag of inexpensive plastic rhinestones onto otherwise tired pair of old boots.
Or how about these trending rain boots that I scored at an outlet for less than $50.00.
“OK rain: I'm ready for you now”.
I leave this “blurred lines” posting with a clear message on an electrical box...
spotted...just down the road a piece.
