It's called "what not to wear" people!!

Happy Thursday

so..............I realize with the Kevin Federline letter yesterday that I neglected to tell you all about the "fashion show" with Clinton Kelly the other night at Macy's.

well, I will say this, I had a lot of fun, as it was wonderful to have a "girls night" the clothes were but great. Most of the models were wearing INC or Calvin Klein...and seeing as INC is my favorite (wearable and realistic brand) I was all set.

Clinton Kelly did what I feared (hoped) he would do...he heckled people in the audience...pulling them onto the runway and making them do the 360 and in front of hundreds and hundreds of people talked about how saggy their boobs were or how big their butt was.

The greatest is that really he could have picked almost anyone in the crowd for this, the place was filled with flip-floppers, capri pants, sneakers, and denim shirts....DENIM SHIRTS....for hells sake!!!

And seriously there is this plague going on with women over 45 in this's a little advice....UNDER WIRE BRAS....seriously it will help you.

SO that being the case, I had no fear that I would be singled out and ridiculed for the public fashion flogging, leaving me broken and going home with an eating disorder and a complex...I was an INC scoop neck shirt, black and white with an almost Pucci inspired pattern with wonderful sleeve detail, I was wearing a black a line skirt and boots, and my killer faux croc I was set.

Any way you could tell we were at a low brow Ohio fashion show because before it started the dj played the theme to the Ohio State Buckeye's....which made the crowd of sad fashion don't just go crazy...(seriously there was hooting and hollering), and also in a very Ohio fashion there were cookies served at the show.




yeah, you should be feeling shocked, I was it would be a lie to say I did not partake of the cookies, they were huge and I stalked the refreshment area like a lion trying to eat a yummy gazelle so I could get a fresh cookie not yet manhandled by the denim shirted mafia.

So that was that, Clinton Kelly was charming in that "way" of his...he did notgive out too much real advice, nothing most people who care about how they look don;t already know. I was glad he was not focusing on what fashionable things you should wear, but mostly on figuring out clothes for shape...

he is very good at making sort of dumpy people feel like they are not as dumpy as they think they are. fashion fashion....or something like it.

Now, I am thrilled for Columbus Fashion week, because my friend Debbie will def. come with me, already understanding how serious I take it all....

so, that's that. I have lots of important things to say, but now I feel I have been babbling for quite all don't need to hear my rantings about anything else for today.

so I will leave you with that, and some pictured of some pretty things, that can be found in my shop.

Sounds like they should have picked you out of the audience to show people "what to wear"!

Sounds like fun...except for the cookies & denim shirts, that is!

Ohhhhh... the fashion show sounds... well... interesting. I'm sure that Clinton Kelly was a hoot. He seems like he would be.

Hope you have a lovely day, my dear!

How fun!! My sister met both Clinton and Staci in SanDiego where she works, and she said they are really the nicest people...Staci is beautiful in real life (better than on TV) and they are good tippers...

The New Yorker in me wants to say, "Ohio has fashion?" But in reality, I'm sitting here in a tee shirt and ill-fitting jeans because you can't take the Jersey out of the girl. Have fun!
