You can’t keep a good blog down!

Angela Merkel is back, and so are we!

Angela Merkel is back, and so are we!

Congratulations to the Chancellor of Germany for her return from injury. Apparently she hurt herself cross-country skiing, went to the doctor for some bruising a few days after, and was informed she’d been walking around all this time with a broken pelvis. The doctor ordered bed rest and…well, you can see how she paid close attention to that order. Let’s raise a glass of Sekt to the Queen of the collarless jacket and her recovery, and to our own comeback after some technical difficulties.

Oh, and speaking of comebacks and booze, look who’s showing up places in outfits from 2012 and looking unexpectedly great doing it.

A Perrylous State!

Sure, Katy Perry has made something of a business out of looking hot and confused, but we’ve got the same blank look of puzzlement on our faces here (even the cats). What kind of world are we living in when Katy Perry is:

  1. invited to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner
  2. the best-dressed woman there?

To what, good readers, cometh the world?


Yo, Bro

Congratulations and imaginary swag to Klee, who’s no stranger to the podium if our memory doesn’t fail us. For her hypothetical swag we virtually present the veddy British (and veddy fragile) Royal Albert 100 Years of Royal Albert Teacups and Saucers, Set of 5, 1900-1940.

Seersucker Thursday

Seersucker Thursday

Finally, the US government does something I like: they celebrate the immortal holiday known around the world (or at least around the Capitol) as Seersucker Thursday. Guess what they do on Seersucker Thursday? Sure, wear seersucker suits, but they also…um.


Play seersucker games?


Seersucker sidesaddle?

Eat special seersucker foods?

It is indeed difficult to go wrong with seersucker, perhaps the greatest of America’s innumerable contributions to fabric; however, as the woman on the far right demonstrates, it is indeed possible.

Lily Allen has always been known as the “Dirt with angelic face” singer, and it’s nice to see she comes by it honestly. This is what her sister chose to wear to Lily’s wedding yesterday, keeping up the standard of class, but of unspecified altitude.

Then again, maybe she had the dress fitted before she got the boobs fitted. And serve her right if she couldn’t breathe all night.

I dunno about you, but I definitely feel in need of something strong to wash that out of my mind’s eye. I recommend the Nuptial Cocktail and some gossip links.

Happy birthday to Johnny Depp, everyone’s favorite artsy pirate. I love this picture, both for the ripped knee (even though it’s so obviously done for fashion, rather than simply worn through and I normally hate that) and for the fact that THANK GOD my invisibility cloak worked and you can’t see what Johnny’s smiling at.


Let’s toast the birthday with a truly delicious Blue Jeans cocktail and some celebrity gossip:
