Comment to Win a $50 eGift Card From MAC! (Ends Monday)

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine! My goodness, it’s Caturday. :)

How’s it going this morning? Tabs, El Hub and I are chugging along, purr usual, although there are some nasty wildfires out here in Northern California. There’s smoke all across the horizon. The closest one of the big fires is less than an hour away near Lake Berryessa, and that one has us a little nervous.

Did you do anything fun last night? We went to see that movie, the new Mission Impossible, and uh…Tom Cruise does not look his age. I don’t know if it’s all movie magic or just clean livin’, but yeah, I’ll have what he’s having, LOL!

Good movie though. Lots of action and car chases and stuff, of course. Exactly what you expect in a Mission Impossible.

After that we just came home, and I sort of passed out. I think it was only about 9:30 (!). I don’t know why, but I’ve been more tired than usual lately… I must be taking lessons from Tabs.

Have a good weekend, OK? Give yourself a hug from me. I’ll talk to you soon, and good luck in the giveaway.

Would You Rock a Fringed Purse?

Published in: Fashion, Just For Fun

Urban Originals Project Crazyheart Fringe Purse ($88, available now at Nordstrom)

A fringed purse, as in a purse with fringe, as opposed to a purse living on the outskirts of society…

Get it? Fringe?

OK, that was pretty dumb, but you know you laughed! :)

So, I’m totally down with bags that have a little extra something-something, like an embellishment here or an accoutrement there, especially if they’re a more-is-more type of bag.

What I like about these bags I saw at Nordstrom the other day is how they move…where the fringe sways like a pony’s mane when you strut down the street. I kinda love that.

How cute is this dress!?

I love the open back, and I think the neutral colors would work for lots of different occasions (imagine it with a pair of bright pumps…maybe in hot pink?).

I wish I had a party or something to go to so I had a good excuse to get this cutie!

2. Molly Hatch Mugs from Anthropologie

Hello, inspiration! :) Each of these mugs has a nice little saying on the front.

What a great way to start a morning.

3. Recycled Karma Tee from Nordstrom

but first brunch

Recycled Karma Tee ($22 at Nordstrom)

Shout-out to my favorite meal of the day, what-what! At brunch you can make everyone happy, because there’s sweet stuff for the sweet tooth-ed folk (like yours truly) and savory stuff for the savory lovers.

Would You Wear This Polka-Dot Jumpsuit?

Published in: Fashion, Just For Fun

My eyes got all anime-sized huge when I saw this polka-dot jumpsuit from across the room…

Oh, Anthropologie, I’ll never understand your mysterious powers. How did you make me think I could actually wear polka dots from head to toe and have it look totally legit? I think it has something to do with your music or the store’s lighting… I dunno. Or it’s some kind of weird fashion voodoo.

In theory I like this outfit by Whit Two ($168) a lot. It comes in petite and regular sizes, for one thing, so I wouldn’t have to hem the pant legs. Then there’s the polka dots, which to me are timeless, like stripes and leopard print.

And then there’s also the black and white angle (again, never goes out of style), and how the whole thing is a complete one-piece outfit, so you just throw it on and you’re freakin’ done.

I also get a ’40s screen siren vibe from it, which is a style I LOVE, and I was already making a mental list of all the matte red lipsticks I was gonna wear with it.

Then I tried it on…

When I zipped up the back in the dressing room and saw myself in the mirror, I actually said, “This is SO not happening,” before promptly cracking up, LOL!

You know how some outfits look totally fine from certain angles, but then when you face the mirror full on they just look wrong?

Yeah, instead of feeling like Bette Davis or Katherine Hepburn in it, I felt like I was about to emerge from a very small car with 12 very tiny clowns.

Hey, at least I can say I tried, right? :) Because you never know when it comes to clothes. Sometimes the things you think you’ll never wear end up being super cute.

Aaand sometimes they don’t.

Would you wear this black and white polka-dot jumpsuit? Inquiring minds want to know…

Would You Wear These Vans Disney Princess Sneakers?

Published in: Just For Fun

Vans Disney Princess Sneakers, $59.95

Vans Disney Princess Sneakers ($59.95 at Nordstrom)

No, I did not find these Disney princess-bedecked Vans ($59.95) in the children’s shoe section. They’re for adults! :)

FOR REAL.

I spotted them at Nordies after lunch yesterday at the Cheesecake Factory (and between sightseeing venues) with mah fam.

I see a number of famous Disney princesses represented, except for Tiana from The Princess and the Frog (or maybe I’m just blind?). I love that movie…

Would you wear these shoes? I’m totally down for printed sneakers (I was actually wearing my ASPCA Cat Vans when I took this pic, haaaay!), but I probably wouldn’t wear these.

Probably. Maybe.

I love Disney and all, but I totally missed the Disney princess phase when I was a kid. I don’t know if I’m quite up to it now.
