Jessica Quirk Is A Salty Old Something, That’s For Sure

I have a few minutes, so let’s discuss…whatever this is:

Today busy Jessica “Studio and Meetings” Quirk’s  praiseworthy, career making personal style is built on jeans, rain boots and slicker, and a sweater. Oh sorry! I forgot her super witty descriptions!

Today I’m looking very much like a salty old Fisherman.  We could trade outfits and/or I could work on a lobster boat in this look!

Please someone from “Deadliest Catch” get this woman on a boat immediately. I would love to see Messica standing around doing the pigeon toe, talking about their “cozy” sweaters, asking if they knew the Gorton’s guy while they tried to keep the boat from capsizing.

Tatiana Draws Strength From Her Handbag

Tatiana of Love Lies Lace plows forward with her “Weekly Gratitude”. This week Tati expresses thanks for her new Kate Spade purse (which she claims she needed due to back problems):

So I’m gonna be honest… this week sucked. I really tried but something would inevitably happen to just suck the happy out. Nevertheless I can’t deny that there were some silver linings in ever day. Like the fact that I noticed something fantastic about my new purse almost a week after owning it! It feels even better to carry it around with me now! We all need an extra dose of courage sometimes for those weeks that come at you like a wild lion!

This week she posted a movie review, a recipe for chopped up vegetables, an orange skirt outfit, and this weekly gratitude crap. How about a post about WHY your week was so rough? What came at you like a “lion”? Did a bow fall off your shoe? Because honestly if this is the worst thing that happened to you this week:

Thank you to Kevin for taking such great care of my whiney self. You see I haven’t mentioned it but I had a very unfortunate incident with a can of Heinz baked beans last weekend. It inflicted pain and some damage and Kevin was the perfect nurse.

You don’t need courage, you need some perspective.



Jessica Quirk Knows Wedding Rings Are Fashion

Jessica Quirk, married, is an expert at personal style. And she knows nothing says fashion and personal style like making sure everyone sees your wedding ring in at least two posts a week:

What do you think? Are you married today?



Georgie Girl Is Incredibly In Tune With The Average Mom

“Georgie Girl”, that foreign chick who invented “lifestyle blogger turned mommy blogger” as a career move, is so relatable!

I am working from home today so I snapped a few pics of Charlotte as she headed out the door with her nanny for a playdate.  I finally found some hairclips that stay put in her hair.

I think Charlotte’s nanny did a great job of dressing her today – the perfect example of a high-low outfit with a Ralph Lauren coat combined with a Target dress!

I love how down-to-earth this post is. Just another breezy work at home day for mom, sending out her accessory baby with the actual caretaker in 300 dollars worth of clothes.

Posts like this are why people think mommy bloggers are assholes, Georgie.



Love Life Lace’s Tanya Is Russian

You may not know this, but Love Lies Lame’s Tatiana is Russian. She never mentions it, she’s pretty private about her heritage as a Russian, but she is indeed Russian. In fact, she will always be Russian:

I may speak English perfectly well and write decently in what is my second language, I may never be viewed as anything but American by most people on the street, I may have lived here for over a decade and yes, my husband may be American but no matter what my passport says (and just to clarify my Russian one is on it’s way to our house as we speak! I have dual citizenship) I’ll always be a Russian. A weird, passionate, incredibly loud (and please stop shushing me), sincere and absorbing Russian. And I’ll always feel the most at home among my people.

Her people, the pink loving, ever-smiling, easy living Russians must be very proud of her obsession with Paris and French crap.



The What I Wore Ad Rates Prove That Messica Is Way Successful, Haters

A commenter brought to our attention the advertising rates offered by What I Wore and they’re…optimistic to say the least.

I’m curious if she is actually getting 5,000 dollars a month from someone to run an ad? Because I’m sure the Tea Party is looking for some sponsorship opportunities with 1984 Republican party outfit models.



Stay On My Internets: Jaclyn Day

Most of you have heard of the Jaclyn Day Blog. While she does do personal style posts, her blog also talks about what she’s reading (books, not just for decoration!) It’s not just frivolity and fashion, either. Recent posts talk about the loss of her dog and body image and self esteem.

She also manages to be married without becoming one of the smug married style bloggers out there. Being a normal person with normal pursuits and a personal life she keeps personal may not get her the attention of Lucky magazine or Rich Tong, but it certainly keeps me reading.

I enjoy her blog. It never seems to be too twee, or too YAY I’M MARRIED! and it doesn’t seem to be the typical trying-too-hard-to-be-fashion personal style log. And she recently converted to the catlady club, so maybe I’m biased. What do you think of Jaclyn Day? Personally I think she can stay on my internets.
