I clicked it. Then, suddenly, man-god Fabio magically appeared in my living room, the man from the "I can't believe it's not butter" TV ads.
He fell to one knee at my feet and crooned, "Tell me your complaints, thou my goddess who summoned me." !!! Well, we got to talking and he ended up staying the night. When I woke up he was gone but I hadn't had so much fun since pyjama parties with my girlfriends. Which got me thinking: Blogger may be onto something here.
I immediately wrote to Blogger and they were so impressed by my enthusiastic response to their Complaints management that they had me test-drive a few of their new label additions.
PYJAMA PARTY : WRITE MY BLOG POST FOR ME : MANICURE : STYLE ADVICE
Well, as a style blogger I couldn't resist the Style Advice tab. I pushed it and, poof, there was Stacy London of the old show What Not To Wear standing dazed in my living room. WOW! I showed her to my closet and she peered inside. Then, wiping her hands, she turned around and said, "Sorry, hon. I can't help you here. Too bad our show went off the air," then, poof, she was gone.
Wow. Harsh! Right? Quickly I pushed the Complaints button. Over and over and over. But nothing happened. I tried Manicure for a quick pick-me-up and even Pyjama Party. Nuthin! At least Write My Blog Post for Me was still functioning, thank gawd, and I used it for this post. Let me say I'm not impressed!
So maybe it's better that they stick with just the Complaints tab in the end, but the next time I hope they send Mr. Bean. Fabio kept hogging the mirror.
Have you ever entertained a Complaint? Got suggestions for other tabs? If you're not on Blogger, does your platform have a cool function like this?
I'm linking this outfit up with Patti at Not Dead Style for Visible Monday and Catherine at Not Dressed as Lamb for #iwillwearwhatilike and Anne at SpyGirl for 52 Pick-me-up: Completion.
By the way, I didn't, I repeat, DIDN'T, get picked as a finalist in the H&M contest thingy. My entry was here. The entries of the five finalists are here. There is clarity. So who came up with that saying there's no such thing as failure? I think we need a tab called Blah Blah Blah. Which reminds me, where's my tab?: This is so fecking stupid so throw a party for yourself.
Oh, there it is! Heh. Come on over for drinks and cheese nippies! See? I don't like sour grapes; I like them fermented and dry. We're all WINNERS!!
A slightly better view of the pants below. I wore them mitten-clipped on the sides to make them shorter with black Converse runners. You can see a completely different styling of them here. And I like to think the former owner of this blouse enjoyed bowling, perhaps mini golf as well, as Shelley (Forest City Fashionista) suggested. I hope so. I adore this top.
And now a huge thank you to Suzanne Carillo for posting a photo of me with the BEST positive quote ever, along with a shout-out about my big, huge CBC Radio debut (heh) talking about Bill Cunningham. I could go on all day about how much I admired that man, even though I didn't know him. PLUS, Suzanne has been posting to my IG for me while I have tech issues. This is friendship beyond the call. xoxo
AND MORE BREAKING NEWS:
I didn't know if it would happen but I am on the cover of SheSpark magazine's July issue called "Own It!" It talks about self-image kick-starts for women over 40 in style, beauty, and wellness from a variety of angles.
Did you know that 54 is the age that women are least satisfied with their bodies?Yikes! In the section about social media you'll probably recognize many of the blogs mentioned.

"Owning it" is definitely a concept I subscribe to in my style and I was honoured to be included as one of several over-40 Instagrammers. Go see who else is in there - I'm in excellent company!
SheSpark magazine is published monthly by Thea Wood and Audrey Stefanik. I must thank them for including me in this fantastic issue. We need more punchy magazines for over-40 women and I enthusiastically applaud their work and passion.
Okay, that's all. Heh. Finally. For now.
