Wardrobe Malfunction Or Stylish

Wardrobe Malfunction.jpeg

So I got to personally witness a spectacular wardrobe malfunction today. 


It’s not often in Washington, D.C. that we get to see someone in a bright blue suit jacket with flowers. 


Obviously, this is a pretty conservative dress town. 


Some might call it rather style boring or even nerdy. 


However, this brave guy went out on a limb and stood out like a sore DC thumbnail. 


Actually, I believe it’s nice to add some color, flair, and style and light up the room and the faces. 


Too much gloominess and depression here at times. 


I was so excited when someone actually called me “Happy Tie!”


Then everyone took a turn showing off their colorful socks to each other.


It takes so little to turn a room of people joyful and laughing.


Honestly, we need more of this, and why not be a contributor to people’s happiness and smiling?

Superman Leadership

Superman Socks.jpeg

This guy’s socks were very cool.

If you can say that socks make the man then perhaps this is it.

Superman that is!

No special shirt, underwear, or cape required–the socks communicate it all. 

For the man of steel or one in the making (if worn at workout time).  

Then again, I was trying to imagine someone actually having the guts or nuttiness to wear these to the office.  

If they would, it probably be with the following in mind: 

I can do anything helpful to get the job done–

1) Rolling out cutting-edge systems and business process improvements faster than a speeding bullet

2) Creating positive change more powerful than a locomotive

3) Able to leap with integrity over organizational obstacles, red tape, and naysayers in a single bound

It’s a change consultant. It’s a corner office bureaucrat.  It’s a “superleader!”

Up up and away…it can be done (even without the socks). 😉

Her Hair Was A Hoot

Orange Hair.jpeg

No offense intended, but not going to miss this lady in a crowd.

Orange-hot pink hair, a zebra shirt, big black-rimmed glasses, and a wild bag with dozens of pins all over it. 

It was also funny that the sign over her head says, “Orange” to match this lady’s hair. 

My childhood friends would probably call this a “Hair Don’t” like a hairdo, only don’t do it!

Sometimes, you have to wonder what people are thinking.

It’s nice to get attention, if it’s attention worth getting. 😉

Makeup That Leaves You Wondering

Lips.jpegArt Of The Lip.jpeg

So I was in Macy’s yesterday doing some holiday shopping for the girls. 

And came across these eye-catching advertisements for MAC cosmetics, especially lipstick. 

The one with the mustache lip and the big gap in the front teeth caught attention–like what in the world is that?  

And the poster with twenty-one different lips certainly let you know that there is quite a bit that makeup can do to express your lips and yourself. 

Overall, thought it was quite an effective advertisement, even if the one with the mustache was a little gender confusing. 😉

Hey, Lady On The Shirt

Lady On Shirt
This was just a really cool shirt that I saw.



It’s has an image of a lady standing out front with what looks like a volcano in the background. 



The volcano is shooting up its hothead steam, and looks like it’s blowing the cloud on the left sideways, off-kilter. 



What’s nice about the lady on the shirt is that it’s not just drawn on, but has materials sewn in to make it 3-D.



The black and pink fabric for the dress, the green and red beads for the shirt, the pink and silver over the black patches for the sunglasses, and the yellow for the hat. 



Also, like the way she’s standing all confident wth her hands on her hips and her elbows out–like “Hey, that volcano is nothing (compared to me)!”



The shirt is so simple, yet very smart. 



That’s the way most things should be. 😉

That’s Good Cookin’

Chef
This was a funny picture when we were out west. 



This guy is standing on the corner dancing around in his apron and chef’s hat. 



He’s also got a big fat fake mustache on top of his real one and big round glasses/googles on his face. 



He is working hard to attract people to come into his restaurant. 



This “chef” calls over to us jumping around–doing anything to get our attention. 



So we had already eaten lunch, but he did get us to stop and say hello–this picture captures the moment. 😉

Fashionistas Oh Mista

Armani
I found this gorgeous picture on Facebook. 



I believe this model on the runway is wearing Armani. 



The green dress is overflowing with beautiful ruffles, accented only by a black belt. 



As the model walks down the black and white runway, the whole outfit just seems to pop with soft texture and sheer eloquence.



I showed it to my daughter and she was hesitant about it, thinking that the green color made her look like a tree and surrounding foliage. 



I can see her point–maybe a nice sky blue or candy pink would be better…I think all three on stage would be amazing! 😉

Best Animated Shoes

Dragon Shoe Husband Wife Shoe
These are some very cool shoes–different!



My daughter found these on Youtube 



They are made by this unboring shoe company in the U.K. called Irregular Choice.



Walking on the back of a dragon cannot be a bad thing. 



Stepping alternatively on the bride and groom–maybe an interesting perspective on the ins and outs of marriage. 



They also have a neat pair of Panda shoes. 



Check these out, I think you’ll look cool and really like it. 😉

Diamonds and Opals

Ring
I just wanted to share this photo of a beautiful ring I found in Santa Fe. 



I like the big diamond in the middle surrounded/lined on both sides by more diamonds.



What seemed really special was that it was inlaid in a setting of beautiful blue, green, and red opal gemstones. 



I asked the jeweler how much this ring was…



Couldn’t believe the price tag for this was $35,000!



Probably a little steep for most people, and not exactly traditional, but in my mind, it was definitely a stand out. 😉
