Hueing It Up—Realized

Deb: I realized that I had not officially followed up on my INSTYLE influenced “Hueing it Up” blog-post. I know that I posted some photos from Newfoundland, but they were more about fun and NFLD beauty and not so much about fashion.  So that is my offering this Wednesday, September 28, 2011! It is a largely pictorial post.

I would be a filthy lying slut if I did not admit to you that I am also posting this particular post because I am having a “crazy getting boy ready to move to Montreal” week and I am grasping at straws. And not the straight up straws, but the mental crazy curly straws.

So for what it’s worth, here I am in “Runway vs Real” world workin’ m’ nautical theme and making use of as few items of clothing as is possible in Debland.

The Boy is stalwart photographer. His tribute includes:
1. Never rolling his eyes once.
2. Always being my fashion “go to” for approval and advice.
3. Being secure in his manhood with both tasks. Xo

Barbara: Deb, you are my fashion yoda. I love to watch your style in all its genius, so I’m happy to blog this way today.

  1. My favorites are the 7th one down and the bottom. I think I'm in love with your red jacket, it gives everything a nice little pop.

  2. Thanks Erin, you know that is a jean jacket over ten years old and it is still a great little go to.

  3. Favorite look: 3rd/bottom (Is that a moon necklace? :) ) In the bottom pic, the shoes make the outfit extra cute.

    Favorite pieces: red denim jacket, moccasins, blue denim shorts

  4. Rigel it is a moon necklace. I have several moon pieces as the moon is my bff. This one and some of the others are from a company called "Me and Ro" and their pieces are all based on the ancient and the spiritual mostly. They rock. This particular piece is ivory. But it is not ivory from an animal it is earth ivory. Check out their website. Pieces are spectacular simple and unusual.

  6. Thanks Madge, it's still feels like summer here. But the girl guide in me tells me to get out the woolies just in case.

    ReplyDelete
  13. ...which is why Mom has a few extra minutes to whip up snazzy refrain. You go girl!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My favorite is the very first picture, because I LOVE the worn jeans look, which you wear very well. All of the outfits were perfect for your trip, too. You match the background beautifully, mood-wise. :)

    ***
    Gonna pack my outfits, gonna go on a trip
    Turn off all of it, not worry about zip
    Miles and miles of road, enjoying the ride
    Scenery of gold, but the best is at my side.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love that poem Dawn! And yes I love my worn jeans too.

    ReplyDelete

  17. Thanks Sean'a but if that ain't the pot calling the kettle sexy I don't know what is! Love you back baby. xo

    ReplyDelete
  18. youre hilarious, although I prefer you as a filthy lying slut.

    This was just my speed today. The "I am not supposed to be on the internet" speed.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love it, Dawn! I think everyone should respond in rhyme or lyric from now on. Except me because -- like Gae -- I am supposed to working and not lurking!! (hi, Gae!)

    Sean'a, I will add that you are indeed a sexy kettle.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes Gae, I have been packing to go to Vancouver in my head all day long. Guess I should put my body into it now. Relating.

    ReplyDelete
  21. GOOD LORD, how many pairs of TOMS do you have????!!! I absolutely adore those anchor ones! (about to get my second pair shortly...carpe diem written on them!)

    Hope everything with Luke's move works out! :]

    ReplyDelete
  22. Kelly I have seven pairs of Toms. Love what they stand for and love how cute. Carpe Diem. MUST HAVE. I am off to the website! Luke is moving tomorrow. Excited for him. Thanks for the warm thought.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Work it, Covergirl! :)
    It IS exciting for Luke. He's a cutie and it seems like you guys did a great job raising him. Yeah you!
    Hugs

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, and LOVE the rap, DJ DawnBoom. I should hook you up with my handsome and talented nephew, SeeFor Yourself. Maybe you could be a backup rapper...or backup Wrapper. ;p
    hugs

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks Karen, workin' it I did. Luke is our darling and we adore him, thanks. I know huh. Love it DJDawnBoom!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ok you guys, I don't even know where to start with this one.......I got a headache about a third of the way through.....

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow Y Chrome you made it official. I love it! And as far as the headache, yeah don't blame you. Girly stuff indeed! mind you Y, you may apply the hue packing for your next trip. Works for guys too you know.

    ReplyDelete
  28. okay that is so crazy. That was MY message, not Luke's. Wow it made me laugh so hard when I saw this under my 21 year old son's name. Man. Funny. don't know how funny he would find it though. What the hell happened?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Okay this is the real me now. Debra Anne McGrath. Luke had signed into my computer to print out his Montreal lease and did not sign out which is why he is listed as making the last few comments. but, it was me. Me, the real me. Deb. Or, Luke is really in touch with his feminine side. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Even though I'm not into the nautical look for myself, Deb, you make it look AMAZING! I freaking LOVE the white dress with the stars! :)
    Just curious... why are you headed to Vancouver? Business or pleasure? lol

    ReplyDelete
  31. I was getting all excited that Luke had joined me. Twice now for that matter! Makes you wonder what other interesting stuff of mom's is showing up on his computer? Yikes!
    Here's how you check. Go to his profile where it seems you already are and type in "filthy lying slut" if this blog shows up I think you are pretty much f.....ed and the trip to Montreal will be a confusing five hours for him! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think it would be really inappropriate for me to comment on those photos Deb but I really want to......
    I'm flicking between "Ice Rod Truckers" and the baseball game. Anyone doing the same?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah Beth I do too. My 20 dollar special. And it is light grey in real life with navy stars. Nautical is my life theme. Y, how much have you had to drink? Five hours from TO to Montreal? Y, Y, Y!

    ReplyDelete
  34. That should be "Road"
    A typo! Really!
    Ok, take your best shot.
    I deserve what I get.....

    ReplyDelete
  35. No shots. But myself I am flicking between "say yes to the dress" and "Cake Boss". Dear God we are the SAME person.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Okay the sad truth is that ice "rod" truckers sounded perfectly normal to me.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Luke flying or driving?
    I'm thinking 5 hour drive....

    I could have told you that a long time ago......

    ReplyDelete
  38. OHHHHHHHHHHHHH Didn't think of the driving. Yes. that would be five hours. He is flying though...if only the world problems could be solved this easily.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Too funny! I think we just created a spin off for you to start working on Deb.

    ReplyDelete
  40. SEVEN PAIRS? Man...I wish i wasn't a broke college student. I would be ON that!!! LOL!

    And yes....if only I could fly anywhere....I'd fly...out of the elevator we got stuck in (glare. It's in our latest blog post).

    I'd probably just fly back to Scotland though. Ok...WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY off topic. Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  41. SCOTLAND. sigh. Love it. I will check out elevator blog. Already panicking.

    ReplyDelete
  42. DJDawnBoom... I could make that work. Well, the Dawn/Boom part, anyway. DJ? I don't think white girls can rap any better than (most) white guys can.

    Karen, as long as your nephew's hanging out in Texas, it'd have to be a band via email. God, wouldn't I kill for someone to be able to use something I wrote.

    BTW, I'm working on something called "I Would Drive 5,000 Miles," a parody and ode to Colin and Brad. If I can FINALLY make it work (I started the idea in May!) I'll debut it here.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Between Y Chromosome and DJDawnBoom, we have a whole new offshoot in spiffy handles :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Dawn I love it! Yes please debut it here!!!
