some's got it

when i posted this week's sunday six, i had no idea that this shirt would show up on kendi's site this week! imagine my delight!  can you?! i feel like finding this shirt there totally redeems me.  it is repayment for the years the locusts have eaten in terms of bad fashion choices in the early 90s.  i'm back on top!  

The Sunday Six: Edition SALES

okay so this week is all about the SALES!  somehow looking at lower prices makes me feel better, even if i can't actually ADD TO CART if you know what i'm say'n.
//1 the silk blythe blouse i blame kendi for making me even LOOK at button down shirts.  dangit though, she makes them look so stylish!  and comfortable even!  and now i want them. on a completely unrelated note, if i ever have another daughter, i'd like to name her blythe.  i just have fallen right over the cliff in love with that name and i hope i get the chance to use it.   i mean... i think i do.   unless i definitely, definitely don't.   and most of the time i really can't tell the difference.   so, blythe.  blythe johanna.  in case you were wondering about the middle.
you probably weren't. (were you?)
//2 the silk peplum blouse do people say blouse (blouze) anymore? (holly, don't answer that.) //3 these post script pants not since the early 90s have i really loved colored pants.  well, back then it wa…

The Sunday Six: Edition 33

if you're thinking i forgot about the sunday six this week, you are correct my young grasshoppa.  today snuck up (sneaked up?) on me.  It snuck me is what it did. if you wondering what i mean by that, let me school you in the ways of urban vocabulary.
snuck: get suckapunched.unexpected punch
for example, 'corey was hatin' on me, so i caught him in tha hood an' snuck that fool.' so yeah, sunday snuck me. or more exactly, the sunday six snuck me. rude. okay, so here we go. //1 this bag no really. have you ever seen a bag that was more FALL?  i die.  anthropologie is so cruel though unto my very soul.  they tease me with all their "I am SO cool! I am SO lovely"!  I know you are!  why, why must you be so expensive?  and then i cry.... waaahhhhhhh and now i'm asking myself, have i already posted this? i'm too lazy to peruse earlier posts.  here's the deal though, i don't really care.  if i posted it twice, it's because it is so cool that it s…

The Sunday Six: Edition 32

//1 cool stuffies ...with strong love specifically for this here unicorn and that there (fantastic mr.) fox.
(of course)
//2 color palette generator did you hear what i just said?
i said color palette gen-er-ay-tor.
i came across this nifty gifty this week and was choking for air.  the awesomeness took the breath right out of my lungs.  for someone who likes to play with colors periodically, on their blog mayhaps (me!) this is pure sunshine.  here's how it works.
thanking you profusely creature comforts for showin' us how it's done and tellin' the world about it.  thank you palette creators, for makin' my day all shiny and happy! i am most exceedingly obliged. //3 coffee mugs don't ya just love mugs?   cheesy ones.  pretty ones.   fancy ones.   cute ones.   i love them.   i've been wanting more.  i have a shortage when company comes.  i like these.  i know they're not a set, but i'm not really a "set" kinda girl.

//4 new school supplies and it's that …

The Sunday Six: Edition 31

//1 caftans leave it to anthropologie to make me fall in love with something i never knew existed.  i looked it up though and learned that it's basically a robe. i am DOWN with robes, particularly ones that make me look all fancy and dooded (duded?) up. (not the kind you usually see adorning the folks of wal-mart.)
bring on the caftans, i say.  i'll be the caftan captain.
aye aye cap'itain! //2
lazarus know that point you reach with a project where you just know this thing is dead in the water?  lifeless.  finito.  kaput.  when your bathroom has been half-painted + used as a canvas (with red nail polish and mascara as the chosen medium) and you go in/out of that room innumerable times per day (because you only have the one) but still have managed to not correctify these glaring problems for over a year (even after hosting a few holidays in your home), that my friends, is two things:
(1)ghetto fabulous
(2)dead in the water

when i laid eyes on this photo though, my heart leapt wit…
