Crayons

Coat: Old Navy (last season); Shirt: JCrew; Pants: JBrand; Shoes and Sunglasses: BCBG; Clutch: Francesca's Collections; Necklace: c/o JewelMint; Watch: Juicy Couture
Whoa, it's my first post of 2012 and I come in on a Friday night looking like a box of crayons.  Maybe you remember.  When you were just a little kid, you had the opportunity to submit names to Crayola to be chosen as a crayon color's featured name?  Oh man.  I filled that out.  After thinking long and hard about it, of course.  Now, I don't want to blow your mind or anything, but I'm going to.  Pizzamataz
Just let that sink in for a few seconds.  Right?  Right? 
"Pizzamataz" for the color red sounded brilliant to my seven year old self.  To my 27 year old self too.  But.  As history goes, my claim to fame was never naming crayons.  Crayola never caught on to the catchiness of that name.  And besides, they already had a color ending in "-mataz."  So. Maybe I wasn't so brilliant afterall.  (That's my 7-year-old-ego deflating.)
On another note, I guess you could say, my outfit matches my mood for what I hope is to come.  And that is, I hope 2012 is absolutely colorful.  So coloful that I want it to be a - cotton candy -  dandelion - fuzzy wuzzy -  gold - magic mint - mango tango - mauvelous -  outer space - purple mountain majesty's - razmatazz - tickle me pink - wild strawberry type of a year.  Yes, those are actual crayon colors.  Wishing you one as well.

Love the jacket, love the sunnies. Especially love the fourth pic. You are gorgeous.

I find joy in nail polish names... Tropical Pumpkin! ...Lightening, Blackmail, Go Chili, Tropicana, Sweet Heart, Dulce de Leche, Pink Chiffon... I might match the polish to mood, or vice versa, this year :) Great blog post. x

In my youth, I thought of the perfect color for brown. Wait for it...Encyclopedia. Mainly because it was the longest word I could spell. And that 'Encyclopedia Brown' series of young adult mysteries. It was simply too good to pass on to Crayola (what a color-eat-color world that is) so my genius is still unrecognized in the crayon world. Oh well.

Nikki @ The Ginger Diaries said...

You look fabulous! I love that yellow coat :) x

Liz Brown said...

Ooohh! Stripes! And leopard! I dont think I've ever blended those two before, but now I'm a little inspired.

Not to mention the pink, and chambaray, and yellow. Very much awesome.

Dylana Suarez said...

I think that's a pretty brilliant crayon name, given you were only 7 years old! And No, I do not remember those crayon contests, for if I knew, I CERTAINLY would have entered too! ;) HAHA

Hope you have a great 2012 Katie!
