I've often thought that I should tell you about my sister's extensive and phenomenal collection of hair accessories...

But I didn't. I never did.

And then, Christina totally beat me to it. 

Warning: what you are about to see is REAL. And graphic. And, you might accidentally break the tenth commandment* a little bit.

And then, you'll be the only one on her way to Hell, cause Jen totally shares her hair bows with everybody, and has thus far been miraculously spared from scourge of lice in a miraculous, saint-style manner.

Except, not everybody** can really pull off some of these dazzlers like she can. For instance, I learned the hard way that they don't look super marvy with yoga pants*** . But she's got a copper metallic number that wouldn't look shabby next to some of Austria's crown jewels (I've been watching a lot of Rick Steves when I'm not busy puking), that I wore to a Broadway show (last year, when I was still medium-foxy, and not brought low and nigh unto death by this bun in my proverbial oven) with my Nanette Lepore flapper dress. I was smokin' hot****, but my neck was sore from holding that thing up all night!

Okay, ready? Buckle up, then click here!

* Thou shalt not covet

** i.e. me

**btw, even my yoga pants are too tight, and the Zofran quit helping at all. So I am feeling very sad and am thinking that I need to go to Wal-Mart and buy me some scrubs. They seem very loose and non-spandexy. But I don't want to puke in the aisle at Wal-Mart, for obvious reasons, plus my sister was horrified when I told her my plan, because she is more fashionable than anyone I know, and considered it a cry for help, and I think she might have called the mean people at What Not to Wear to schedule me some sort of intervention. Which I totally don't need this week. At least I know they can't have much footage of me looking like a bag lady in the grocery store, cause I don't ever leave my house. 
Feel the mode, Stacey and Clinton! (And Jen).

****I'm a six in New York, but a seven here in Scranton (er, Mesa)

Oh yeah. Come back and tell me which is your favorite!

Mercy. I don't begin to know what to do with those kinds of things!

First off I hope you start to feel better really soon. Second you are probably one of the most enjoyable spandex wearing writers out there. There is nothing wrong with scrubs either. At least I hope not because I wear them @ least once a week.

Jen is so great. I kind of didn't want to do that post about her hair accessories for fear that those that don't know her would pass judgement. Her collection is quite a work of art & she does have great style. Plus you're right she does share.

I love all the head bands. I would live to wear cute things like that, but they give me bad headaches.

I have started a very small collection of my own, only all of the pieces in my collection go on my daughter, only to be ripped out and thrown, sucked on, or mutilated. It's a dangerous habit she has. Jen's collection is gorgeous, I must go to that store. And I agree completely that she's the most fashionable person I know. Even her jammies are probably fashionable. I totally want to come to your reveal when you're on what not to wear, so make sure to post the date and time. And I hope you feel better soon, sorry you're so barfy.

Very cute hair pieces. My daughters have all kinds of bows and hair things but their momma is very plain when it comes to hair things. I think that is my sign to get with it :)!! I hope you start to feel better soon :)

Have you tried diclectin? That's what us Canadians/Eskimos use up here in the Great White North for morning sickness. That and a little seal fat mixed with whale blubber....

Claire said...

First - congratulatons!

Second - I'm sorry you're sick. But I'm not really. Cos I was sick when I was pregs with my girls. I like to think that other folk have to suffer like I did. And by the sounds of it, you're still foxy when you're sick. So you can just keep being sick. Well.. you can stop around the 16 week mark. i'll let you.

And what the heck!? I thought I was bad having a big box full of bobbles and ribbons for my girls' hair! This woman is my hair accessory sensei...
