Quickies (no vulgarity was used in the writing of this post… pinky promise)

Posted in Fashion, Quickie at 10:49 PM by TKWatson

For days when I feel like getting down with my bloggy self, but don’t have enough energy inspiration to write something with actual content… introducing, the “Quickie”.

Quickie: a short post where I comment briefly on a very specific item such as a quote I like, a picture, fashion, etc.

Today’s quickie topic: FASHION

(WARNING:  I make NO claims to be a fashion expert.  The only thing I really know about fashion, is what I like, and what I don’t like.)

My tastes in fashion are pretty simple.  I don’t like avant garde fashion.  I’m often not big into “hip” fashion.  I like classic styles with just a little twist and just a little edge.  Some might call that boring.  I call it… “I won’t look like an idiot when someone whips out a picture of me in that outfit in twenty years.”  This dress fits my tastes perfectly.  OH.MY.GOSH.  The designer is Bianca Nero.  I love this designer because the clothes are (at least from what I’ve seen…) a lot like this — Classy and timeless with a little bit of (subtle) detail that makes it interesting.  I can totally imagine myself in this dress.  (If I completely remove myself from reality, that is… cuz uh… the price tag on this baby is a wee bit out of my current budget.)  Anyway…   It definitely fits the timeless and classy quota, but it also hints of vintage style just a little bit.  I love the clean lines, the sequin bust (obvs), the seem detail (that you can’t see in these pictures)  and the racerback.  I’m often of the opinion that racerbacks on evening-type dresses just don’t really… work.  It makes them look too sporty.  But this dress totally pulls it off and even adds a little something, in my opinion.  The whole she-bang is just fantastic.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

Things I Pink Fluffy Heart

Posted in Fashion, Pink Flully Heart Day, Wish List at 11:37 PM by TKWatson

In an effort to brighten up the dreary day that is Monday, I hereby declare Monday the “Things I Pink Fluffy Heart” Day.  A day to post about all the things I love.  (People not included… because… obvs… I love my peeps the most.)

So, here we begin.

The top three things I Pink Fluffy Heart the Most.  (Or… at the least the first three that come to my brain at the moment.)

At this very moment, G and I are having a lovely conversation listening to each other breathe while he plays video games and I type, thanks to the amazing invention that is Skype.  (If only Skype didn’t drop calls because G’s internet service sucks at life.  That’s what you get when you live in an igloo.  Or something.)  Skype allows me to keep in touch with my far, far-away fiance in a way that wouldn’t have been possible a few years ago.  It’s not quite the same as snuggling up to my honey, but it’s about as close as I can get when my honey is half a world (or so) away.

2.  (Image Source: bestuff.com)

Starbucks Iced Mocha.  Except, minus the whip.  (Apparently the entire interwebs are against me on that since there wasn’t a single picture of a Starbucks Iced Mocha without this unnecessary accessory.)  An iced mocha (or cafe mocha in the winter) is my drug of choice for those mornings when I need a little pick-me-up.  Or a huge helping hand.  Damn Starbucks and the gouging of my pocketbook with every sip of caffeinated goodness.  (On another note: Does anyone even know what a pocketbook is anymore?)  Despite the exorbitant prices (I blame my acceptance of the prices on my love of econ and it’s basic principle of supply and demand…), I still pink fluffy heart Starbucks iced mochas.

I absolutely, positively, pink fluffy, wildly beating, heart all things Jessica Simpson. I am spell bindingly in love with her shoes.  Let’s face it, I am a  shoe-o-holic to the nth degree.  I LOOVVEE shoes.  But Jessica Simpson shoes currently hold the top shoe shelf of my heart.  Luckily, I’m not completely financially irresponsible, so I don’t buy every pair I see that I fall in love with. (I just dream sweetly of them in my slumber…)  I love these, especially in the Navy Fropicana;  I love these in the red patent.  Though I’m not big on flats, (short people need a little extra, yo…) I adore these.  I’d keep going, but what’s the point… by the time I finished, I might as well just put a link to the “view all” shoe page.

So… those are my top three.  Stay tuned for the next addition of Things I Pink Fluffy Heart.  (Oh… and… you may want to have a pen and pencil handy… ya know… in case you see something that you just have to buy.  For me.  Just Sayin’.)

Happy Monday!
