Black Friday Blog Hop!

If this is your first visit to my blog, WELCOME! If you are returning, it’s great to see you again!

Many thanks to the host of this event: Carrie Ann Ryan.

   ~Blog Post~

OMG, Ladies and Gents! My DH and I went to the Galleria Mall last Saturday because I absolutely LOVE this cologne that Clinique only sells at Christmas time called WRAPPINGS. I've been wearing it for probably 15 years or more, ever since my hubby bought some for me as a Christmas present. ANYWAY, it was a bleedin' MADHOUSE (as you can imagine). PLUS, the first saleswoman at the Clinique counter thought they'd sold out already, and was trying to put an online order in for me when another saleswoman found two tucked away, so that made me very, very happy.

So here's what gave DH and I a huge hoot: Giorgio Armani goes Ghetto-Chic. I love the brass knuckles on the top of the clutch purse. I took this pic with my phone, and I'm about 90% sure this is still a window display for the Giorgio Armani store (the entry was around the corner, but this was about the 4th window display down a long hall leading to the outside of the mall). 

Okay, question: Would you or wouldn't you wear butts on your high heels? (No judgement here, either way, PROMISE!).  What about the brass knuckles? For or against?

Hope you all are having a wonderful Fall!!

How does a smart, easygoing serial monogamist tame a closet Bohemian?

Adam Taylor believes selling his childhood home is the only way to put the past…and the memories behind him. Then he meets Joy Pettigrew. The uptight real estate broker isn’t what she seems.

Freaky and Joy Pettigrew no longer mix. She’s a corporate girl now. She plans to make the sale, get the commission, and never look back. So how does she keep the truth from Adam Taylor long enough to get him to sign on the dotted line? He swears he wants to sell his grandfather’s house and move on. She knows he’s lying to himself. He insists she throw off the façade she’s hiding behind. She knows she’s lying to herself. She also knows he’s going back to Houston. Nothing she does will change his mind…and even their shared passion won’t convince her to go with him.

She’s already home. After all, Christmas is just around the corner and everyone knows you spend Christmas at home.

  1. I've seen the outrageous designs in the name of fashion -- but I don't think I'd ever wear them. They're a bit too much. ^_^

    Enjoying the hop!

  5. YES to both. Those ass-heels are HILARIOUS, and the brass knuckle clutch is ok, too, though a bit too sparkly for my taste.


  6. NO & NO

  7. Um, no to both. One, I am just to clumsy to wear heels and two they would just too much! LOL!

  8. No way I'd wear them or own them

  9. Oh heck yeah!!!

  10. I would show them for fun, but I wouldn't wear them anywhere :)

  11. Maybe! The purse is way too sparkly!

  12. It's not my style at all, but I can see why some people may like the purse, it does sparkle :).

    Sadly these aren't the craziest things that designers have come out with to get some attention.

    Thanks for having the giveaway!

  13. If I could still wear high heels, you bet I'd wear them with butts on them Imagine the comments and conversations starters.

  17. I don't care for the butt heels at all. (That is a very strange thing to type, by the way. LOL) I actually don't mind the sparkly brass knuckles purse.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    JYL22075 at gmail dot com

  18. I`d say yes & yes, they`re funny as hell and real pieces of art. And it`s not something you should wear everywhere you go, for appropriate events/parties it would be very cool to wear something like that.


  19. Would you wear butts on your high heels? No. Not really my thing.

    How about brass knuckles on your clutch purse? Yes!


  20. lol i love it!!! i would wear them , not everywhere, but they would be aesome for conversation starters

  21. Awesome giveaway! I'm not a black Friday shopper. lisarayns at gmail dot com

  22. I'm not a Black Friday shopper. I don't believe that shopping should ever be a full contact sport. I spend the day baking cookies with my kiddos instead.

  23. I do not like crowds so BF shopping is not for me! I will be spending my day hopping and then snuggled up reading! Well that is after I decide on what new book I have just added to my to be read list! It gets longer every hop! Thanks!

    I am thankful for all the wonderful books I am finding on the hop!


  24. Why not go to a party like this, it's cool! :)

  25. i would jsut wear the brass knuckle clutch. no butt shoes lol thanks for the giveaway! beccaboo97200 (at) att (dot) net

  26. I can deal with the brass knuckles, but the butt shoes just do me in.

    I would use the purse though. Hey, you never know when it will come in handy!

  38. Nope. Don't think I would dare wear butts on my heels or carry around that clutch. People would think I belong to the mob. lol. It's neat but not for me. How interesting.

    Thanks for sharing!

  39. LOL. No to both!

  40. NO to both. Way too ghetto for me. :)
    This is the BEST way to spend Black Friday. Sitting at home, hopping with old friends and making new ones. I can't handle the crowds anymore so I only do Black Friday shopping online if I do any. I tend to pick up gifts throughout the year so come November I'm finished. That way I can spread out the purchasing and not spend a fortune at the time of the year when my job is at its slowest and my paycheck is at its lowest. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

  41. The shoes no,the purse maybe;a moot question as there is no way I could ever afford such items.

  42. Love the purse; the shoes are too weird for me.

    Thanks for the hop stop!

  43. No to the heels, yes to the purse. I can think of a few times it would come in handy. Like BF shopping, for example!

    dancingcelt at gmail dot com

  44. No to both.:)


  45. No way!

    melindaromance AT gmail DOT com

  46. No I don't think I could do the butts on my shoes but the purse might be kind of fun.


  47. No butts on my heals. Lol. Maybe brass on my knuckles for the right party. ;)

    I stuck to the web today instead of braving the crowds. ;) Thanks for the giveaway!

    fancie @ live. com

  48. I'd say yay for both, I'd love to make people do a double take.


  49. I was going to say no~ but looking at the picture, definitely yes! I think those make a statement in a good way, I love it! Thank you for the lovely giveaway~

    MostlyMisha [at] gmail [dot] com

  50. I don't think I would..I don't wear heels as it is. Thanks for participating. Katieamanda1(at)Yahoo(dot)com

  51. I don't think I would..I don't wear heels as it is. Thanks for participating. Katieamanda1(at)Yahoo(dot)com

  52. That would be a no on the shoes and not just because of the butts. The purse I could live with but wouldn't buy normally..
    Seawitch Reviews @ yahoo .com

  53. No butts for me..I have enough of my own. I would totally go for the brass knuckle clutch..
    bournmelissa at hotmail dot com

  54. I would have to say no on the shoes, but I like the purse. Thanks for being in the hop!

    jochibi AT yahoo DOT com

  55. Yes to both!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  56. I would NEVER wear the butt stilettos...Mostly because I would teeter and fall over on stilettos! The purse--sure. I'm a Jersey Girl...brass knuckles in the bag/on the bag. It's all good! LOL.
    catherinelee100 at gmail dot com

  57. Brass Knuckle


  58. I'm not sure on the shoes I just don't know where I would wear them but I probably would. Now I would definitely rock the purse lol
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  59. No butts buy I like like the knuckles.
    magic5905 at embarqmail dot com

  60. Brass Knuckles are HOT!!!!!!! Love em' and want em'

  61. I do like to shop on Black Friday, but the last few years I have found better sales, No lines, No rude people, and free shipping on Cyber Monday.

  62. I have to say a big resounding no to both. lol

  63. No, I don't think so. lol Thanks for doing the hop!


  64. I have never tried the wrappings, I always wear Clinique Happy! I guess it depends on wear i was, if i had to I would especially if it meant protecting my family! Happy Holidays!
    allysonbrann06 at yahoo dot com

  65. This is my fourth to last stop and I am so happy I made it! That photo gave me a huge chuckle. I don't consider myself old or stuffy but I definitely would not wear the butt heels. I do not care what label they came from. Well, I take that back. If Ian Somerhalder personally requested I wear them, I would for sure. The purse I actually think is quite cute and wouldn't hesitate taking it out for a night on the town. I think it would be a great conversation piece!

    Thank so much for being a part of the hop and for the giveaway.

    Happy Holidays,

  66. The purse is a maybe -- the shoes a total "no!"

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  67. Maybe the purse but not the shoes
