Women can make such creepy yet beautiful music.
Warpaint has always been my go to when I’m in a certain kind of mood, but, let’s see, how do I describe the mood I’m talking about. Maybe you are a bit aggravated, feel extra quiet, or would like to throw down a coffee mug or something, but think better of it because you happen to like the mug and don’t believe in waste? If that is you, on occasion, Warpaint is much better than breaking things you like. The band is either all female or almost all female. I don’t have enough time at the moment to get that 100 % straight, but there are enough women making the music that it’s appropriate to say – these are women who rock. Now, since I’m very season sensitive, I want to make sure I’m clear. These songs don’t scream spring. They really are later winter. With that said, don’t forget to spring forward before you go to bed Saturday night. xoxo
Warpaint – Love is to die from the new album called Warpaint
I was thrilled to hear this. It’s really good. Really good. Different and still good.
All of the ones below are from Warpaint’s 2010 release – The Fool. It was a good buy. I enjoyed the whole album.
Get to 3:06 on this one. It has a nice musical surprise.
I LOVE Shadows. I think it’s my favorite on the fool. It’s fantastic. It’s pretty and unexpected.
My bad mood started early.
We all get them.
I know why I’m in one.
More specifically, I’m half way out.
It was a long day.
I’m tired of cold weather.
Don’t want to exercise.
I just want to be alone.
To cheer myself up I’m looking at this picture.
Funny, right? It’s those stubby legs!
Although, I really want to cheer myself up with…
Matt likes to tease me by randomly texting me this picture of a rare moment of total loss of control. Instead, I ate two apples and stopped following goop / Gwyneth Paltrow on every platform. Feel much better now.
Don’t know what I’d do without my sweet Bridge. She’s been my best friend for…..almost 6 years now. Always by my side, well, when she wants to be – she only does what she wants. Today it’s sitting right next to the shower. The whole time!
Ahhh, so that’s what they are called…
Not knowing they had a name I got frustrated and bought two pairs just like these. I was frustrated because Matt freaked out on me the other day about wearing yoga pants, well, wearing them too often. Well, maybe I tried to wear them with high heels…to dinner. It was a low moment. Sorry – they are comfortable. Like most working people, I wear clothes that itch, irritate, and suck me in to the point of stomach cramps, no joke. On my free time I just want to be comfortable. Though, with Matt’s help, I thought about what I could replace them with that would look a bit more presentable. So, mom jeans they are. Mine are a lot baggier – what’s the point of wearing them if they are going to be tight? I don’t want anything constricting. Plus, mine were Old Navy so way cheap!
Below is what yahoo shine has to say about my new weekend staple-
“Mom jeans”— pleated, tapered, high-waisted pants with elongated pockets — aren’t exactly cutting edge, but the denim drawers once adored by the over-40 set, and later parodied on “Saturday Night Live,” are making a surprising comeback. Again.
Case in point: Topshop now carries Moto Blue Mom Jeans, a $66 cotton version and Urban Outfitters sells the Mom Jean, a $59 pair with a tapered, cropped leg. And Hollywood is crawling with the look— in December, Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted wearing the voluminous, drawstring version of the jeans, and Elle Fanning admitted to New York magazine that she favors a baggier look, “sort of like a mom jean.” Meanwhile, actress Emma Roberts rocked a high-waisted, skin-tight pair of dark denims recently. Hard to believe that in 2009, Jessica Simpson received flak from the media for wearing a dark blue pair of her own during a Florida concert. But back then, high-waisted denims were having a resurgence, too—thanks to street style blogs featuring hipsters embracing the look ironically, of course. This time around, we have a new explanation for mom jeans and some guidelines for wearing them.
“Fashion is experiencing a wave of ‘90s nostalgia— lots of crop tops, plaid, and layering — and mom jeans right fit right in,” Stephanie Trong, co-editor in chief of Fashionista.com, told Yahoo Shine. “But let’s be clear: These aren’t everyday jeans, and they won’t necessarily flatter your body; however, they do poke fun at fashion and make a playful statement.” Dare to try it? Proceed with caution — and definitely wear them with confidence. nostalgia— lots of crop tops, plaid, and layering — and mom jeans right fit right in,” Stephanie Trong, co-editor in chief of Fashionista.com, told Yahoo Shine. “But let’s be clear: These aren’t everyday jeans, and they won’t necessarily flatter your body; however, they do poke fun at fashion and make a playful statement.” Dare to try it?

I typically wear flats to work or heels with as comfy a heel as possible. ( really, do they exist? ) My friend, Emily, prefers crazy high heels. Don’t know how she does it, but they do look good. And, yes, they are Louboutin.
I’m getting old.
