Would You Wednesday: Collar ID

By |August 8th, 2012|Why Did or Why Don't?, Why Did You Wear That?|

caller idThere are a lot of trends that come and go that I have zero interest in participating in.  One such is the emergence of “collar necklaces.”  These are exactly what you think they are:  necklaces posing as collars.  This is one of those trends that has only just begun, yet I’m already annoyed with it… kind of like neon was for summer.  So anyway, I’m pretty sure the only people who should be wearing fake collars are priests… or on the other side of that coin people who’re into some Christian Grey freaky stuff… but what do you think?

1. Alexa’s Mesh Collar Necklace, $24.99, 2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Collars and Cuffs Silver-Tone Necklace, $330, 3. RJ Graziano Pearl Glass Collar Necklace, $52.50, 4. BP Chain and Rhinestone Collar Necklace, $205. Forever 21 Metallic Paisley Collar Necklace, $10.80


And much like a blocked call, this is a trend that I will just ignore.

We all get a little busy from time to time, whether it be with our jobs, or personal lives, or episodes of Real Housewives (there’s like three on at once!), but that’s no excuse for being completely oblivious to the what’s going on out in the “real world” (no, not the reality show).  Here are a few headlines from the news to keep you in the know.

Now go spend some money and stimulate the economy.



The List Volume LXXIII

glass half fullSince it’s clear that focusing on the negative does nothing but breed more negativity, I feel that it’s important to also discuss the things that make my little black heart sing.  You know, the things that bring me back from the ledge.  So, until further notice, the list will be split in two.  Pick your poison.

  1. Realizing that being born in 1991, makes you 21.
  2. Getting rejection letters from jobs I didn’t apply for.
  3. Streaky highlights.
  4. Fifty Shades of Grey (the trilogy).  For fifty or more reasons.
  5. Unfriendly hostesses.  I’m fairly certain that 88% of your job is smiling and being helpful.

  1. Spending time in a toy store.
  2. Wallpaper.  I’m itching to wallpaper something.  Anyone have a spare wall in need of paper?
  3. Standing under the steaming water of a shower just cause it feels nice.
  4. Taking all morning to eat my breakfast/drink my coffee.  Life is lovely at a leisurely pace.
  5. Happy birthday to Blake and his beautiful mama, Devan.  I can’t believe it’s been a year since you joined the party, little dude!

Until next time…
