Those of you who read my blog regularly might know that I recently bought a television - the first one I've had since I moved to New York. Now, it's not like I didn't have a TV because I felt intellectually superior to the trash they televise these days; in fact, I eat that trash up like it's a dish full of strawberries. Big Ang, Coco - they're my new heroes. Who says you can't enjoy The Economist and a DVR full of housewives with a lot of plastic surgery? Mostly everyone? Oh, well; someone has to be the black sheep. And by the way, I usually read The Economist while I'm on an exercise bike...with a healthy dose of fashion (okay, and gossip) magazines for when I'm done with that. It's all about balance. And it's also about hiding Us Weekly underneath the others.

So yes, I'm on a television binge. It certainly helps to have it in the background while I'm working. Right now, I'm on a Golden Girls kick. I've probably seen most of the episodes in my lifetime, but that doesn't make them any less enjoyable. There is a full marathon going on and I've been watching them from the beginning. It's just as funny today as it was when it originally aired. Only now, I actually understand all of the jokes...since I was only a baby when it started!

  3. :O I love this look so much! Especially the dress ^_^ I was wondering.. are your glasses RB5254? I'm thinking of getting some in either violet havana or black because I love yours so much! Thanks , Brianna.

  4. So bright and lovely as usual! Love those shoes. I don't really watch too much tv, either... I'd easily go a while without a TV!

  6. Brianna: No, they're the RB5226! The ones you are talking about are more rectangular.

  19. Lovely outfit, the colours all look so good together !
    I actually had a post with the same title last summer ( http://bowtiediary.blogspot.com/2011/08/golden-girl.html ), must be because of the overly popular tv-show.

  23. I LOVE this outfit. Definitely one of my favorites. I rarely watch tv, but lately I've been glued to those detective mystery shows (Criminal Minds, NCIS, Law & Order...& House). It's ridiculous!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haha hey at least you're getting your work out in while reading... see, multi-tasking! Even if you're watching all that other stuff... you're still being productive! That's what really matters!

  25. What a gorgeous dress! Beautiful colors.
    I'm on a bit of a TV binge myself... but I watch all the shows online! Must be a lot better watching it on a big screen-- less hunching! I'm watching Community, Parks and Recreation, and Mad Men pretty religiously now that the season of Downton Abbey has ended. :)

  26. Hi Keiko Lynn,
    I just love the ornages and browns that you put together in this outfit. Since I am a high heel lover, I absolutely just love the brown wedged heel shoes you are rockin'.
    Also, I do not think there is anything wrong with t.v. binging.

  27. Your beauty is golden with this outfit. 24 karat golden beauty. The lace top goes nicely with the golden floral dress. Nice shoes as well. Very beautiful, Keiko Lynn!

  51. I'm in love with that dress! My roommate has a top in a pattern amazingly similar to that and I always want to borrow it, but never have gotten the nerve up to ask her {even though she says I have free reign in her closet}. I might need to give into the urge after seeing this post! *laughs*

  52. AAAAAHHHHHH! I LOVE the Golden Girls. Love love love them. Tragically, we cancelled our cable to save money and the Girls aren't on Netflix! I have missed them terribly.
