Givenchy Ad Nauseam

Givenchy has gone cuckoo bananas. R described the high fashion ripping thrift stores, and the inevitable mass market ripping high fashion as "an endless loop of despair."

That said, I'd take those boots any day!

The Case of the Mysterious Dirty Cakes

"for one thing, that's my pig. 
for another, amanda and i saw four thousand dirty cakes in williamsburg and thought of you."

Received this curious gem of a comment the other day. Not exactly sure what it means. Spent a considerable amount of time googling "four thousand dirty cakes + williamsburg." Not a movie, nor an art installation... possibly a bakery liquidation?

I think I don't get it because, to be honest, Lauren is too smart for me. Homegirl's got me googling like no other ALL THE TIME. I love her brain, love her heart even more. All I could think of was this, but alas, I think those are dirty pillows, not cakes. And these pillows are not dirty, in fact, squeaky clean. It really floors me when people take the time to let me know when they see things that remind them of me. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Might just be one of the best things ever. Of course, I take everything as a compliment.

They're wicked comfortable.

OH FUCK, Y'ALL*, I think this little Italian peach just ousted France Gall as my go to European-swingin'-sixties-cutie-pie-dancin'-gal.

Watch these and tell me you didn't just fall head over heels for Rita Pavone. I double dog dare you! According to her wiki, she was a Senate candidate in the Italian general election of 2006.



*I don't really say "y'all" IRL***
**New label!
***I do say "IRL" IRL


Still don't fully understand how Groupon works, but I'm quite enamored with their little cat.

(And I'm not even a cat person in the slightest! Besides keyboard cat, of course.)

Fashion + Prose

"Never underestimate the power of style over substance" is the tagline to one of my all-time favorite places on the internet, Shit Threads No Friends. A streetstyle/fashion blog with turn of phrase like you wouldn't believe. You'll find the mysterious scribe, Miles, saying things like...
"Emilie Muller is the guilty party whose managed to immortalise the ebb and flow of youth in all its bone china fine arms and fragile knees… she looks like she might float"
"The lightness of this jacket/shrug is tangible and with the softness floating in front of the clouds it imitates contrasting hard with the betty’s angles and angry vacancy, this really is burn that burns." it's no. big. thang. The other day, I popped over came crashing head on into this:
I hemmed and hawed and missed my opportunity. Bona Drag had taken this In God We Trust biznazz card holder down when I went to window shop it today. Blergh.

Step Off

Mmmmkay, so all of a sudden Ricky Gervais is being chided for being a lovably-unlovable jerk? Puh-lease people, his entire career is built on that! I didn't watch the globes, but I thought his jokes were fucking spot on. I mean, I'd gag if I was giving Hef an old fashioned. Don't front, you would too.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for a moment of douchebloggery. Over the past three years, W&M has somehow amassed over 200 subscribers (in google reader, maybe more elsewhere?). Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined to have so much fun or meet so many amazing people. Thank you so much for reading along, commenting, and being such great friends to me.

As a scanty token of my undying gratitude and to commemorate this milestone, I think I shall hold another giveaway! How about another mystery box of miscellany? Hand picked randomness from me to a special reader. And because the first one was so much fun, please de-lurk and leave a comment below telling us something about yourselves + your contact info by January 31st.

Yours ever,

I hope my friends never

Loved Ones

Now-a-day, when I have less-than-nice thoughts about someone, it helps me to think about how that person is someone's mother, or daughter, or father, or husband, or son, or friend. They are beloved to anonymous someones, and thus they become instantly more lovable to me. 

Perhaps, I can overlook their quirks or ignore certain remarks. Maybe I'll be strong enough not to wish someone's loved one harm or to go fuck someone's loved oneself. Because I certainly would be hurt/pissed if someone else was mean to a loved one of mine. 

(I'm getting soft in my old age, eh?)
