"What were they thinking?" Wednesday on a Thursday & the Giveaway Scarf Winner Revealed!

Before any of you begin to judge me, I would like to say that...yes, I am well aware that today isn't hump day and that I completely failed as a blogger and human being yesterday.  Ok, well maybe not totally as a human being, but definitely as a blogger.  As you are well aware, per our previous conversations, I am not perfect.  Actually, no where near it.  I'm not in the ballpark of perfection...not even the general vicinity.  I am not even approaching the exit to perfection.  So, if you're going to stick around for a while, this is something you are going to have to learn to live with.  However, while you are dealing with my imperfection, I will gladly except you for yours.  Now, I can't promise that you won't end up on a "What were they thinking?" Wednesday post in the future.  I haven't a clue as to who some of these people I post are, therefore, I cannot guarantee that it won't be any of you out there in Blogland.  Rest assured that if somehow you do end up the subject of a "What were they thinking?" Wednesday post, it isn't the end of the world.  I mean...come on.  You're talking to the girl who shared her entire kindergarten perm nightmare with the entire World Wide Web.

SO, the purpose of this entirely too long rant is to say, "I'm not ok, you're not ok, but that's ok."  I'm so glad we got that cleared up.  Oh, and I also want to mention that if I want to post a "What were they thinking?" Wednesday post on  a Thursday, I'm going to do it.  Because, this is my blog.  I may not be able to control most things, but as God as my witness I will control what goes on my blog. There. I said it.  You have officially seen the snarky side of E. Leigh.

Let's get started. Shall we?

Ok, I am totally thrilled that they are remaking two of my favorite childhood films...

The 1960 film, Pollyanna...

and Follow that Bird.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the originals are going to be better.  No, really.  What is going on here?

I'm pretty sure a little piece of my soul died looking at this next picture.  My question much fashion tape did it take to achieve this look??

I have absolutely no idea when this picture was taken, and I don't care.  Because, honestly, this look was never ok.  It looks like her closet just threw up on her.  

I love this girl, but I'm pretty sure she looks like she could be making the morning trek back to the freshmen dorm from one of the frat houses. Shack much?

Now let's get on to the good stuff.  The free stuff. 

Before I announce the winner and everyone gets their panties in a tizzy because they weren't the lucky girl, I want to let each and every one of you know that you are now able to purchase your own E.Leigh's Handcrafted Scarf off of our site by clicking HERE

  1. You are awesome. Just found your blog from a link off the 4th Annual Girl's Night post on Alice 107.7's site. Your fashion sense is spot on, and I'd love to find and visit your store, (I'm here in LR, too.) but I'm quite sure I'd have to restrict my appetite to the clearance rack(s). I'll be more than happy to spread my drool around the store, though. Ha. Be sure to let us know if/when you run into that guy in your building while you're looking fabulous. Keep those clever witticisms coming! BTW, when you acquire a fabulous $400 bag, what happens to the old one? Peace!

  2. Just realized you were an online store only. :( I was envisioning a chic little boutique somewhere downtown or in the Heights, wondering why I'd never seen it before, and nervous about what I'd wear when I went there.... :( It was a beautiful dream.

  3. Hi Lillaby! Thank you SO much for your kind words. You are an absolute dear! I am actually planning on opening a LR location by mid 2012. April is my let's keep our fingers crossed! That chic little boutique you are dreaming of happens to be very similar to my own little dream. And when you do come and visit the store, wear whatever your little fashion heart desires! ;)
