Speaking of Colors...

This is what my wedding is gonna look like. Pretty sweet, No? I LOVE having no color scheme.

Cry Me a River, John Mayer

A lot of other people have written about John Mayer's Playboy interview where he spouts a bunch of racist garbage and women hate.

I don't hate John Mayer's music. I don't love it, but I'm not offended when it comes on the radio. However, after reading this interview, I can safely say that I hate John Mayer and I think he is a ignorant, misogynistic asshole.

Yes, these are strong words, but when you're in the public eye and you say the kind of crap that John Mayer did, someone needs to say something.

John Mayer, maybe you thought you were being funny, but ignorance is never okay.

Here are a few highlights from the interview:

That’s why black people love me.

PLAYBOY: Because you’re very?

MAYER: Someone asked me the other day, “What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” And by the way, it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a ni**er pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, “I can’t really have a hood pass. I’ve never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, ‘We’re full.’”

PLAYBOY: It is true; a lot of rappers love you. You recorded with Common and Kanye West, played live with Jay-Z.

MAYER: What is being black? It’s making the most of your life, not taking a single moment for granted. Taking something that’s seen as a struggle and making it work for you, or you’ll die inside. Not to say that my struggle is like the collective struggle of black America. But maybe my struggle is similar to one black dude’s.

PLAYBOY: Do black women throw themselves at you?

MAYER: I don’t think I open myself to it. My d*ck is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a f*ckin’ David Duke c*ck. I’m going to start dating separately from my d*ck.

PLAYBOY: Let’s put some names out there. Let’s get specific.

MAYER: I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous. Every white dude loved Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.And Kerry Washington. She’s superhot, and she’s also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she’d be like, “Yeah, I sucked his d*ck. Whatever.” And you’d be like, “What? We weren’t talking about that.” That’s what “Heartbreak Warfare” is all about, when a girl uses jealousy as a tactic.

I'm sorry, WHAT? The only thing better than this is his narcissistic, RIDICULOUS apology:

We Love Colors!

Lately, I've found myself experimenting with outfits that incorporate different textures and patterns, but they've all been in the same blah colors because for some reason, I started subscribing to the rule that in the winter, you don't wear color. The only bit of color I incorporate comes in the form of headbands/"headgear", massive necklaces, or flower pins. Or, when I'm feeling saucy, red lipstick.

That's all well and good, but I am tired of the grey and the dark, so I NEED SOME COLOR in my life. I started with redecorating my study, which is now an explosion of primary colors- red, yellow and blue. It's like a kindergarden classroom for grownups (perhaps I was inspired by hubby-to-be's place of work...).

Next up, my wardrobe. I just discovered the best company in the world that I want to share with you. We Love Colors is a company that specializes in bright, bright hoisery. I know, I know, hoisery is not exactly "clothing" per se, but their saturated rainbow colors add such a pop of color to your outfit that immediately, you feel better. Look how amazing this girl looks (in the snow, no less!):

They also have TIE-DYED tights. How can you not love this?

Scholar Ladies(Get an A on it)

Thanks to Jezebel's Margaret Hartmann, I found this video. I, too would much rather hear young girls singing "You should have got an A on it" instead of "putting a ring on it" ('cause even though I'm getting married, I'm 25 and getting my law degree-in hopes of "getting an A on it").

BIG NEWS. This is the dress that my bridesmaids will be wearing. In 5 different colors (one color being the one above).

Why I love this dress:
1) Doesn't look like a "bridesmaid" dress per se;
2) I can incorporate all the colors that I originally wanted into my color scheme;
3) It's flattering on everyone;
4) It's floaty, and fits perfectly with the whimsical/tea-party-ish theme I am going for;
5) It's inexpensive; and
6) Since it's J.Crew, THERE IS NO NEED FOR TAILORING and it arrived in 3 days.


I would highly recommend checking out J.Crew for bridal wear.
