I didn't know how I felt about Brandon Flowers going solo until I heard Crossfire. I guess I feel good about it after all. I forgot how much I love his voice. Although Brandon Flowers sans The Killers is not the same, I think that has more to do with my attachment to them as a band and not with the quality of the music or his talent. They are just one of my favorite bands and there's a little bit of nostalgia in seeing him going solo. He said it was temporary so let's hope it is so.
It's funny he named his album Flamingo because I love flamingos for one reason and one reason only.
And when the hardest part is over we'll be here,
And our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears,
The Boundaries of our fears...

Richie wore a lot of pastel colors throughout the show. He wore letterman jackets and cardigans displaying his school colors, which started with light blue in the beginning and eventually changed to red. I've never been a huge fan of pastels, but last month I got the cutest off-the-shoulder light tan shirt and it has become my favorite, so here's to new fashion risks in 2011 and Richie's style is the way to start! Even if it comes in smaller doses, like shoes. I'm going to start including pastels here and there, until I find the ones that work and completely cross off the ones that don't.
And of course, Richie in argyle! I still don't know how I feel about this. Richie pulls it off because it's his style. This may be too preppy for me, but never say never. I figured I can combine preppy argyle with a studded bag and a vintage looking ring and put some edge into the whole look.

I remember watching Disney shorts when I was little. My dad recorded them on a vhs (vhs! I'm old!) and my sister and I would watch them over and over again. Ferdinand the bull was my favorite. A gentle bull who likes to smell flowers, talk about an oxymoron. I also like how they make a mockery out of bullfighting and the matador.
A ferdinando tuvieron que llevarselo a la hacienda, donde continua hasta la fecha, a la sombra de su alcornoque favorito, aspirando la fragancia de las flores silvestres en dulce paz...y es muy feliz.

I'm not a huge Taylor Swift fan, but my hat's off to her for making the puffy shirt fashionable. Combining ruffles can be a good thing. That been said, "The Puffy Shirt" has got to be my favorite Seinfeld Episode.
"Jerry, you are promoting a benefit to CLOTHE homeless people. You can't come out
dressed like that! You're all puffed up!.. You look like the Count of Monte Cristo!"
