Let’s spotlight our best supporting anchors:
I love that Yamiche took a gosh darn risk with this outfit. We can disagree about whether she was successful, but I love her in the pink. The puffy tulip sleeves worked for me. ( See below.) Bravo for passing over those same-old-black tops.
Amna has branched out successfully, too, and I couldn’t be prouder. Personally, this blogger would never have paired purple with purple (not least because it’s color of the hometown football team, for which I do NOT root), but it worked on Amna. Note the perfection of her hair length.
… And she did it again with this puffy-sleeved patterned dress. I don’t know WHEN I’ve seen Amna in a print. She took a risk with the earrings and I think it paid off.
Then, there’s Lisa. All you readers out there (I”m damn proud to be up to 70 followers), I like Lisa. I do. That’s why I am trying to help. The hair is out of control and she cannot accessorize to safe her life. Or, it turns out, dress herself.
Here, she pairs new sliver frames with those big gold hoops she favors and a gold necklace. Although our blog skews old-school, there is nothing forbidden about wearing silver and gold together, per se, unless it doesn’t work.
Lisa even has trepidation about her accessorizing:
Yes, the frames are silver, not gold.
Last night was an epic fail by Lisa.
An. Epic. Fail.
Where did she find this shirt? 1985? And oh sweet mother, is that a jumper she’s wearing? Why yes, it is. a jumper. On Judy’s show, no less. And I don’t mean “jumper” in the British sense of “sweater.” I mean jumper in the I’m-playing-a-third-grade-art-teacher-on-TV way. (Props to Mr. Blogger for that.) How did she pass Capitol security in that getup?
For a break, let’s go back to Judy, who has been doing her part for the environment by recycling our old faves, including this number by Victoria Beckham. I love that we still cannot identify the motif. My favorite guess came from a reader who said it’s Lucille Ball’s head. Nothing like an enduring mystery.
Plain and simple looked good, too:
The outfit of the week goes to Nancy Pelosi, who is shocked to have won, or is that just one nip-and-tuck over the line? Regardless, I love this jacket. Note the fringe lining the front opening.
I’d like to close with a public service announcement: if you are eligible for a shingles vaccine (and you probably are if you are reading this blog) — get it. Shingles sucks.
See you back here soon!
