Pinterest Picks – Mostly good. One weird.

Do you follow me on Pinterest?

Here is me: Pinterest – Secret Recess

Follow meh, I follow yeh.

First, the good:

Isabel Marant

Meadham Kirchhoff Calandra faux fur coat

Jeremy Laing

Emerson Fry Gold Lennon Boot

Note to friends/family/fans – I am a medium top and bottom, and an 8 1/2 size shoe.

Message me for my addy.  Mmmkay?  Thanks.

Now, onto the weird.  This, this…this…this…yuck, yick, bah, siss, bam, rolf!

This makes my mouth feel funny and my throat itch.

Doesn’t it look like it would just expand in your throat and suffocate you like in some B horror film?

This is what I imagine – pretty, young twentish, protagonist in a sexy night shirt, small bows tying up her pretty blond, shiny perfectly placed pigtails – is standing at her kitchen island, suggestively putting her index finger in her mouth with a finger scoop full of pink foam. “Mmmmm”  Suddenly, her eyes widen, mouth agape, she coughs and clutches her throat as the foam grows and fills her mouth full of suffocating sugary puff.  She falls to the floor and stairs at the ceiling behind dead eyes.

Wow.  That was weird.

Have a good day!

XOXOX

Pinterest Picks!

It’s like 100 degrees here which has like, TOTALLY zapped my inspiration to dress myself.  I made that sound a little dirty – like I have been not dressing at all, but trust me, and ask my husband, when I say I have been dressing but it has not been “dirty”.  At least not “dirty” in that sense.  Maybe dirty as in actually dirty..

But, I digress… Anyway, my lack of excitement for dressing myself means there hasn’t been many  outfit posts lately.  Like, a super long while.  But, really – who wants to see the grody jean shorts and gray v-neck tees I have been wearing nonstop since about June 15th?  Scratch that…I remember I wore them to a show during SXSW..When was that.. MARCH?

It would go a bit like this…”And here I am again, in…yep, folks – the same damn pair of wrangler jean shorts and a slightly different but same idea – threadbare gray tee-shirt.  Today I jazzed the en-sam-blah blah blah with some red flip flops and a bun in my hair rather than the black flip flops and pony tail.  Oh, and look!  My lip gloss didn’t melt off my face today!  It’s the little things, am I right ladies?”

I may throw a “burn the jean shorts” party come fall.  Or as soon as I am completely positive that the temps won’t stick in the triple digits..oh, and the burn ban is lifted.

I day dream of reasonable weather, cute outfits and being less sweaty by slaving over Pinterest every morning with my coffee.  These are some of the cute, dare I say..inspiring outfits I have pulled from the masses of glittery nail polish pics, bold face positive affirmation quotes delicately placed over a picture of some woman’s perfectly airbrushed ass, and frou frou prom dress pics.  (You know exactly what pictures I am talking about…)

 

I am wearing this in 2 months.  Seriously.

 

 

So, not crazy, crazy crazy about the jeans.  But, I love the colors of this outfit, the jacket is to die for (could you expect anything less from me – moto jacket obsession demonstrated all over this blog).  And, I want that LV scarf.  Like, stat.  Who can send that to me?

 

 

I also die for this Lauren Moffatt Sp 2012 top.  Cute with the jacket and scarf from above, the green pants from above.  Who can send me this?  Thanks in advance.

 

 

If I want to get really nitty picky nitty picky – I don’t like the way they rolled up the jeans above the booties.  I might actually wear a different pair of shoes..Maybe brown just to not be so mitchymatchy.  But (!!) we all, or at least most of us, bought into the bright skinny jean thing this spring/summer and need to wear them through the fall and this is a good example of how the “rules” of color as they pertain to the season don’t really apply anymore.  And, I love the idea of tempering them with something like camel.  It’s kinda color block-y and the yellow is unexpected.  Black would be expected (snore).  Red, yellow, turquoise, kelly green, even peach-y are all unexpected.  Def def def going to try this situation this fall.
Anyway, that is all for now.

Enjoy –

I want a new couch.


I have a sad-ish little couch in my house that I don’t really like, but my animals think is the best thing ever. In fact, I often have to get them off of it so I can sit.  And, I think the frame hits my sciatica and makes my legs and back hurt.  Because it just couldn’t possibly be because I am getting old and wear too many high heels, that my back and legs are hurting.  Right?  And it certainly isn’t because I sit on my ass most of the day working.  Right?

I would really like one with a bed in it.  Or, one that is wide/long enough to sleep on for guests.  But, holy crap are they expensive!  Ugh.  And, they are so big.  And, they are so hard to pick out.  And, you are supposed to have them for a long time.  And, getting a new couch would probably mean getting a few other new things for the living room – so suddenly you have spent a lot of more money than the amount that you justified initially because of the sciatica.  (Because it isn’t the sitting on my ass all day, remember?)

But, when you get the right one – it is magic.

I am fantasizing about these couches and these rooms.

Also, I have made a inspiration board on Pinterest.  You can track my picks and finds there.

Oh, the dilemma.

XOXO
