And then there’s this. I posted it on facebook last night, and ladies went CUH-RAZY.
AND THEN NORDSTROM SAW HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE BUYING THEM AND THEY TOOK THEM OFF SALE! NORDSTROM! WHAT THE HECK?
However, I’m still including the graphic because it’s still a great scarf and you still need to know that THE fringe scarf is back in dusty pink.
YOU HAVE TO OWN AT LEAST ONE OF THESE FRINGE SCARVES.
If you don’t have one, buy this one.
That’s an order.
Click HERE for the cable knit scarf,
click HERE for the fringe scarf (which is my favorite scarf EVER). If you have this scarf, you LOVE this scarf.
And a tip from a reader, check out Natori bras that just went on sale HERE.
As I’ve said before, after I bought my first Natori bra on sale this summer at the anniversary sale, I will never ever again wear any other bra.
I posted THIS jacket on facebook on Monday night, but I thought some of you that aren’t on facebook would want the chance to see it!
I went shopping on Monday and nearly
froze my hiney off getting gas on the way to the mall. When I got to
the mall I tried on this coat and FELL IN LOVE. It was sooooooo warm and
cozy. I came home to read the reviews on it, and they were all great! I should have just bought it at the store! It’s FREAKING COLD and I need this coat!
For size reference, I’m wearing a small. And the green color is true
to what it is in my picture, not the drab color on the website.
Click HERE. It’s such a great price for what it is!
(GOOD NEWS! MOST OF THE ITEMS IN THIS POST ARE STILL AVAILABLE, and SOME ARE NOW ON SALE!!!!)
of you were nodding your heads and high-fiving yourself as you read it
because you were already mixing black and brown together and LOVING it.
|So sorry, but the original links were not found for the above pictures.
If the pins I find link to the original links, I promise to always include the links in my post. If you happen to recognize a source, please include it in the comments and I will add the correct source to the post!
So, if you weren’t sure about black and brown, now I’m going to REALLY blow your mind.
Basically, this color combination was the result of a blog post comment left by Shay awhile back.
And I quote:
“Now, what about mixing grey and brown??? That’s tricky. Can you do it?
Yes. That’s me double-dog daring you.”
home and look in the mirror and think,
“I looked like this ALL day?”
But this was NOT one of those days!
and a BLACK cardigan.
A dare was initiated, and accepted.
Brown, Black, and Grey …..CHECK!
you study the above collage (which I totally did), you will see that in
order to pull off this look successfully, the brown color (most often
cognac) is always found in the accessories.
You of course know about MY FAVORITE PAIR by now.
Click HERE for my Miz Mooz boots (seen in like 80% of my pics since October) that are now 40% off!
I’ve talked about them before, but here are my favorite brown boots of the moment.
I’ve received MANY e-mails from readers about both the Saevon and the
Penny boot. Everybody that has e-mailed me LOVES them and highly
I really like the color and the style of this one, and it’s 25% off right now!
|original source not found|
I could easily recreate the outfit with current pieces out there right
now…so I did!
seems to really work to have black and grey anchoring the outfit and to
use brown as the accent. A great way to anchor your outfit is with a
classic black sweater.
up the main pieces of your outfit, all that is left to do is thrown on
some brown boots and accessories.
A cognac belt does a great job breaking up dark colors and defining your waist.
*A super affordable option from Nordstrom HERE that is only $32!
(FYI: I just re-read this post and laughed my face off. I had forgotten about all of the shennanigans from Sean’s season!)
It’s no bueno.
Now let’s think what it feels like to be dumped by a boy on national t.v.
I don’t know what that feels like per se, but I’m thinking it would be muy no bueno.
Humor me and let’s keep going with this same train of thought.
Think how we feel when we know we are going to see that boy for the first time after the break up.
Only ONE thing matters.
It is of utmost importance to look SMOKIN’ HOT.
Am I right ladies?
Now imagine if you are going to see that boy on NATIONAL t.v. for the first time.
Give that a minute to sink in.
I don’t know about you, but I would be buffed and scrubbed like you wouldn’t believe.
I would be spray tanned, I would probably have hair extensions,
and I can GUARANTEE you I would be STARVING.
Well, a couple of reasons:
1) When I’m nervous, I have no appetite.
2) There is no better revenge from a break up than a rockin’ bod.
That being said, I also want to mention how I thought Sean did a fantastic job last night.
It would be SO hard to face a room of women like that,
and I believe he did so with grace, patience, and kindness.
Now let’s get on with the recap.
First off, we see Chris Harrison and Sean crash some parties.
The crazy Delta Gammas chant “take it off”, and he obliges.
All of the cell phones in this pic make laugh so hard!
Shay (his sister) tweets this:
That makes me smile. 🙂
I’m ALWAYS a fan of Chris Harrison. ALWAYS.
But let me just say before we really get going here that I believe he does his finest work on the Women Tell All specials.
He asks GREAT questions and is able to make people squirm,
but he manages to be kind while doing so.
He has a gift.
Chris went to my high school.
I never knew him (he is a little bit older than me), but he is a fellow LH grad!
Chris! Throw a little Wildcat love my way!!!!!
Seniors! Yeah! Let’s hear it, Yeah! Wildcat spirit!
Okay, time to welcome the ladies!
And just as suspected…the girls are lookin’ FINE.
I think all of the girls look fabulous.
But I thought Lesley looked especially awesome.
Loved the color of her dress and how she styled it with green earrings!
In fact, she was wearing my new favorite earrings that I got a couple of weeks ago.
You can buy them for yourself, and you totally should. Click HERE to do so.
I promise you, they will be your favorite earrings OF ALL TIMES.
AshLee looked great too (more on that later), Sarah showed us that she is beautiful inside and out
and Selma looked pretty as always….
but I was left to wonder why Selma chose not to wear a plunging neckline.
I’m going to blame her mother.
Chris starts out by uniting the girls by having them all talk about how they all hate Tierra.
I get warm fuzzies.
He then lets everybody know that Tierra is coming out and says,
“Who knows how this is going to turn out or if it is even a good idea?!?”
Um. We know it’s gonna be a train wreck, and we are TOTALLY on board Chris.
Then they cut to a backstage shot of Tierra manually applying
what I can only imagine is some sparkle.
And let’s all just say it together,
WHAT IS SHE WEARING?
There is no arguing that Tierra is a super pretty girl (on the outside, ahem),
but I’m afraid a couple of the other girls got Tierra’s share of the make-up.
I mean seriously.
I’m guessing that Tierra was all set to play the victim, and she thought
she would look more victim-like after spending no time in the make-up
Listen. Even victims should have enough time to swipe on a little lip gloss.
And Tierra! You are NOT the victim here.
Unless of course we are going to play the angle that you fell victim to fashion, because then YES,
you are a victim.
@Possessionista tweeted this:
Tierra is the physical embodiment of “I didn’t come here to make friends.”
We get that.
Put it on a bumper sticker, tattoo it across your forehead, and
WRITE IT ACROSS YOUR FREAKIN LITTLE MISS NEVADA PAGEANT SASH.
My goodness, I need to calm down.
I apologize for getting all worked up.
Harrison asks Tierra if there is anything she would like to apologize for.
All of the girls lean in and wait with baited breath.
And then true to form, she says:
“Off the top of my head….No.”
“There’s nothing I said bad about them and If I did, bring it to my attention and give me an example.”
I know that Little Miss Nevada is apparently super forgetful,
but she does know that the show was taped right?
Tierra, here is the clip of you saying
“Grow up or I’m gonna beat the s*&% out of you b&#^$%@.”…
or as I like to call it, Exhibit A.
Thank you Your Honor.
I rest my case.
Chris then enters into a conversation with Tierra about her sparkle.
Oh boy, here we go.
She says, “It’s difficult for me because I light up a room. I bring so much joy.”
Yes, she actually said that.
Like she actually said those exact words.
And I’m telling you, I lost all control of MY eyebrows at that point.
Our Master of Ceremonies then talks about Tierra’s engagement and very genuinely asks
“How did this happen?”
This is why I love him.
On a sidenote, who is this girl and why was she sticking up for Tierra?
It’s time to talk to Sarah, and I think you could hear people all over the world say “Awwwwwwww!”
I mean, what a CLASS ACT.
Chris asks Sarah if she thought Sean could have been the one and she says
“I thought he could have been for sure.” That was the sweetest line of the show.
Shay wrote HERE yesterday how she wanted to just invite Sarah over to her house,
cook for her, and hug her.
Shay, invite me please!
I want to hug sweet Sarah too (and I would totally call her Sweet Sarah).
I want to put Sweet Sarah in my lap and rock her, stroke her hair, and
tell her that any guy would be LUCKY to call her his wife.
And after I do that, I want her to let me play in her closet.
The girl has a great sense of style.
And let’s just take a minute to study this next picture.
I know it seems like a weird picture to post,
but this girl is GORGEOUS and her make-up is FLAWLESS.
Desiree sits down on the couch with Chris.
And I’m thinking America loves her just as much as they love Sarah.
I’m also thinking THAT is the dress that Selma should have been wearing.
Chris does a little intro for Des and says “….and then there was the hometown”.
What he should have said was “…and then there was that time when your
gangster brother single-handedly ruined your chance with Sean.”
I’m thinking (along with the rest of blog land and twitter world) that Des might be the next Bachelorette.
I would watch that.
(Who are we kidding, I would watch no matter who it was.)
Sean comes out and sits down with AshLee.
She kept saying that Sean had told her that he had “nothing” with the other two girls.
Um, no she dih-unt!
I will say this, your hair has never looked better sister.
I now have a total hair crush on you. You are right up there with Giuliana Rancic.
And Sean, high five to you for noticing her hair.
Just another example of how his mama raised him right. 😉
And if you are wondering why Sean sent AshLee packing if she had in fact initially been the
“front-runner” as he claimed? Well…here’s the reason….
Sean admits to AshLee that he sometimes found it difficult to “find the
laughter” with her, and I think that statement was incredibly revealing.
That was code for the fact that he was scared to death about a future of
perfectly organized sock drawers, a land where one dirty dish in the
sink could be grounds for no “extra-curricular” activities for a week,
and the fact that every single thing in his home was going to be marked
by a label maker.
It’s okay Sean.
We get it.
All right, the show is over, and everybody is still alive.
But before they go, Team Bachelor teases the mystery letter on the final episode one more time,
and @the courtneykerr tweets this:
But listen, I’ve got a HUGE spoiler alert.
Shay did not write him a letter.
I actually know who the letter is from and what it is about.
You are never going to believe it.
This is some seriously exclusive behind the scenes stuff right here people.
The letter says this:
THANKS GIRLS FOR READING FAVORITES #3 and #4! They were a couple of my favorites too!
And remember, come back tomorrow for The First Bachelor Recap of Huhwhan Pablo’s season!
Now, hop on over HERE for the best and easiest Chicken and Dumplings recipe EVER.
