Well hello and welcome to your Tuesday evening posticle. We have much to explorrrrre…
Well played, Jonathan Adler store in my neighborhood. Well played.
So this blog post concept was born the moment I bought a certain sequin gold frock and I just wanted to mention how frustrating it is to see this…
… whenever I check on the status of my order. Because I’m pretty sure I didn’t order in any Chinese food. “On its way” does not help me. I would like my order tracker to help me deduce the need to determine a different ensemble situation for a holiday party on Thursday night. I am thinking yes? My dear readers, do you have any outfit suggestions/advice for me? I live in nyc so I can always walk to the flagship store of whatever online brand you may suggest. Thanks in advance for your suggestions, I super needs thems.
Ok so you guys know how I feel about Ryan “Hey Girl” Gosling. He’s legitimately my only crush, outside of my Honey. Yes, for reals. I don’t crush easily. I also don’t know if *crush* still means what I think it means, which is what I knew it to mean when I was in middle school. Because as I wrote that I started singing “I ain’t a playa I just crush a lot” and that is most certainly a reference to casual P in V action. So. I don’t–I don’t really know what–what does it mean these days, does it mean P in V? I hate how everything always ends up meaning a sex act. I really do. It makes writing that much harder. [← case in point.]
Here’s where I was going with this. Honey understands the Gosling crush, so he indulges me. Because I challenge any real man with a heart to see Crazy, Stupid Love and not be taken with Gosling’s charm. Still, whenever I talk about Gosling on the blog it’s very dramatic between the time I’ve posted the blog and the moment I actually see or speak with Honey. It’s been fine so far but I never really know how he’ll react. I mean, I am a bit much.
Ok so here’s the thing. (I hope you weren’t expecting a transition, because you’re not getting one.) I love sparkles, and I love gold. It is my truth. What does this mean for you? This means that I collect a lot of sparkle/gold/glittering inspiration on the internet, often from Pinterest pins I love, and then I curate it the f**k up and ultimately blog it, for example like right here right now.
My first find is not a Pinterest find, so clearly I’m good at sticking with themes, but anyway it’s a gold sequin dress with sleeves which means I will wear it during the winter. I discovered it via Twitter when Sarah Yates linked to her blog post sharing the dress, and I immediately bought that s**t up like crazy even though it might not look quite as good on me as it does on her tall, model frame. (This is not Sarah Yates below; Sarah has blonde hair. That’s essentially the only difference.)
Ok so now I am going to cry you a river, because I just checked back while proofreading this and they are mothereffing sold. out. Kindly address all hate mail to Asos, not to me. I woulda stocked up on those b!tches.
PIN – This gold nail polish from Anthropologie is super pretty. I mean in pictures. I have no idea what it looks like on nails. Probably good? I’d buy it. Again, this just goes to show that styling is everything.
I have that keyboard ↴ except mine is way dirtier because I eat over it like a dummy. Also I rarely turn off my computer, and I hate turning off my keyboard in order to clean it because I am the most impatient person on the face of the Earth and can’t stand to be disconnected for one minute?!!
So here are my feelings about this mouse pad: it is supa fresh and I would totally pick it if life made sense and we could buy ourselves our own gifts for Christmas and just open them together like mature adults… celebrating the holiday of children. So yes, Freshly Picked is the ideal shop name for the purveyor of this item. I approve of your branding, sirs/maidens. Carry on.
It also comes in white, or, Caucasian. It’s pretty.
GIVE MEE ZAH NIXT PINN!!!! (Being part German means I have permission to poke fun at Heidi Klum. It comes in the birth swag bag, along with always playing the villain in feature films.)
Fun fact: actually having brunch at Saks IRL is like putting your money into your mouth and then eating your money, but in a penthouse restaurant with panoramic views.
PIN – I’ve had my eye on this gold chevron tray for EVER. And it looks like up in the air somewhere has up and made another one! I do not know why I have not yet purchased it, nor why I’m telling you about it since I want it for myself so badly. $100 is just a lot of money to me. But OMGIWANTIT. Anyway, if you get it, congrats! Isn’t it gorgeous? LOVE.
I mentioned the following tip on Twitter earlier today but this image above really puts a face to a name, if that makes sense. So this is me sharing it again: “To avoid over-Christmas-ifying your holiday wedding, decorate with ornaments and garland in muted or nude/ivory/cream tones.”
I think you’ve hit egomaniacal status when you start quoting yourself from earlier in the day.
In other news, I think there’s something on your tongue.
So, a couple of questions if you don’t mind!
1. Do you have any favorites?
2. If anyone has any suggestions for me as to what I should wear to this holiday party on Thursday, I beg of you to share them with me. Even if it’s just a scarf. SCARVES PULL TOGETHER OUTFITS, amirite? :)
