The Fashion Show/ Watch Help Needed

Wow, what a week, yeah for the weekend! Anyhoo, I haven't been too inspired regarding what to blog about this week, probably because of lack of time. So, I was thinking what inspires me and one thing, as cheesy as it may sound, is creative shows. Currently this show is The Fashion Show, although my heart really belongs to project runway.
These are the winning looks for every week up until today (I am writing this on Thursday night so I don't have last night's up here). I got to say that they looked better on TV, but I really like the idea of being able to buy every winning look. Why that is so appealing to me since I am trying not spend money I don't know.

I have always thought it would be a lot of fun to be a fashion designer (not that I have that talent, just wishful thinking). For whatever reason fashion shows inspire me more than home shows, even though my job is about the house.



Have you all been watching the show? Thoughts?

Okay, changing gears. Thanks to some wonderful people I am getting a new watch for my birthday. For those of you who don't know, watches are "my thing". I love them, I couldn't have too many. Lately I have been in a gold mood- not usually my style- but I am thinking that is the way I want to go.

PS- By a new watch I don't mean anything fancy. I am not in the nice watch stage of my life yet- as much as I would like to be. Well at least physically, in my head I have been a fancy watch person for years, sigh.

So what do you think? Yeah or Ney on the gold watch?

The watch above I am pondering using my credit card points to get. I think the digital part is hilarious.

I hope you have a VERY wonderful and VERY relaxing weekend!

PS- Thanks for reading H&H, I don't say it enough but I REALLY REALLY REALLY appreciate it.

PPS-A HUGE thanks to Brooke @ Blueprint Bliss for helping me with my fonts! Brooke you are the best!!!!!

PPPS- Okay I crack myself up using "PPPS" for what I am about to say, but I have been meaning to say it for a while. I know that I am grammar fanatics worst nightmare, an extra thank you if you are grammatically correct and still reading this blog!

LOVING those chunky, slightly retro-my-grandfather-my-own-a-similar-one watches. I think they are so fabulous! As always, thanks for sharing!

Blueprint Bliss said...

I want a big gold watch--- will you find one for me? Thanks, dear! :)

My mom told me last weekend that my timex ironman wasn't cutting it... in her words- very unprofessional.

Blueprint Bliss said...

Didn't even give you my opinion- because I know you want it- I like the first one! :)

I'm a YES on the gold watch. I've been looking for a men's watch myself.

I'm a poor user of grammer too. Sometimes when I go back over my posts...eeek!

so the MK watch is on my list now too.

and re the fashion show, everyone I love never wins..its always second or safe :( I watch it, but I concur, the august return of PR makes my heart flutter.

I definitely have hit a "gold" phase in accessories, I like the 2nd gold watch!

I need to watch my grammar now! ha!!

Marianne, definately go for the gold watch. I once read an interview with Carolina Herrera and she said EVERY woman should own a crisp white shirt, diamond earrings and a gold watch that can be dressed up or down. She is the epitome of chic. Love your blog. I plan to do a new "series" on my blog about talented designers in ALabama and would love to feature you.

I vote for the gold Michael Kors watch. I love fashion and design shows, too. P.R. is by far my favorite because they are so creative!

LindsB said...

Have a great weekend!

Oh so loving the gold Michael Kors watch. So my vote is for that one. I'm totally horrible with grammer as well so don't worry about it.

Love the new fonts!

I absolutely love the Kors watch...I have the larger one in gold. After i bought it i was afraid it was going to be too heavy to wear often, or on long days...but to my surprise it wasn't as heavy as any other watch! yay!

Kristin said...

I would totally rock the gold watch!!

I've been watching the show every week. I really like it, but I can't wait for a new season of Project Runway to start :)
