Must I hide my face when I go out now??

.

Well- You won’t believe it, but I didn’t get Friday Favourites posted yesterday because the power went out . I was sick . I was kidnapped!!  Ohmigod. It was like super traumatic and everything, but my husband paid the ransom,  I’m home again, safe and sound and I think I gained a couple of new Slim Paley readers in my captors 🙂

Due to the kidnapping, I wasn’t able to shop this week (every cloud has a silver lining)  so my purchasing recommendations will have to be aborted ’til next Friday.  But hey- it won’t kill you not to shop for a week.  After what I’ve been through I’ve got a whole new outlook on life. Dressing comfortably, always having a good book and an extra snack in your bag for unexpected situations- these are the things that are far more important than the newest shampoo for dry hair.  That being said, I did want to share that my Thai connection came through and I’m happily in receipt of 3 bottles of the Rausch egg-a-licious mega shampoo for dry hair. Happiness!!

But back to The Kidnapping.

I have a theory so stay with me here…

First I posted this;

and these…

in my BRRR! ICEBERGS, BOOKS & BAUBLES post.

Shortly after (suspiciously shortly after, I might add) Karl Lagerfeld presented “his” Fall 2010 collection;

Coincidence you say? I would have granted you that until THIS happened;

.

I submit as evidence, photos I posted in June from my trip to the Chelsea Flower show in London:

Coincidence??  Ha! I think not.

Obviously my captors were hired by Karl and Johnny G. ( there may be others…we’ll see as more collections roll out)

Luckily Dear Readers, I revealed nothing.

.

Omg- speaking of revealing nothing, or rather everything (not to mention having A.D.D.), have you heard the Mel Gibson telephone call to his ex-(I’m presuming) girlfriend? Or as she probably calls it- “Tuesdays with Mel”?!

Ouch

Mel- What happened??!

But I digress,

.

Lastly, Dear Designers- if you’re reading and this…and you KNOW you are…

Just sign up for my email subscription-  It’s a lot cheaper than the lengths you’ve been going to 🙂

J.G.- your “disguise” isn’t working mon ami

Karl- showing the love (or so I thought :()

(Thanks for the suggestion Lady Eve)

.

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Oh wait!!

I forgot I wanted to share this with those of you who don’t follow my copious Tweets on Twitter 🙂  This is so funny ;

  1. Being the mystery devotee that I am (Criminal Minds, Mentalist, Miss Marble, ancient Hitchocks, CSI’s by the dozen, Raymond Chandler, John Le Carre, Ross McDonald, etc etc) and having grown up as I did long long ago with someone always holding my hand because an attempt had been made to kidnap 2-1/2 year old me, I confess I panicked because I believed you in beginning!!! But what a colorful story you have produced! Oh that purple coat!!!

  2. I believe you already have proof of Mr. Lagerfeld indiscreetly ripping you off. Did you not post a pic of KL wearing a very specific T shirt awhile back? Perhaps you can illuminate your readers again by reposting it.
    As for Mel, I will never be able to watch The Year of Living Dangerously again and watch his hands on Sigourney Weaver’s back as they kiss at the plane without thinking he used them to punch out his baby mama. What must Robin Gibson put up with all those years? And his kids….ugh.

  3. You must know by now Slim Paley…

    You inspire the WORLD…

    You really do 🙂

    Thank the lord your hubby paid the ransom…!

  4. Mel – and with a nice photo. are you kidding? He used the “N” word. Many a men can go to their graves w/out using that word and to the woman he had a child with. I think we should show no more pretty pictures of Mel and be done with him. BUT – your blog and images are beautiful.

  5. Slim !!!! What has happened to you ! I hope you are being sarcastic about
    the bachelorette audition being funny , I did not even smile ,
    it was a waste of time !!!
    Everything else is great !!!!

  6. I thought I had used every excuse “in the book”!

    I am now using…..”I was kidnapped”!

    How great!!

  7. since you’re obviously super o.k with people copying you I’ve stolen that Bachelorette video for my Facebook wall….freakin’ hilarious!

  8. Once again Slim, you had me in stitches with this post. Your Hubby is sure a keeper, can’t even imagine how much he had to pay for your safe return !!!!!!! after all that drama you still made me LOL literally.
    Hello, I loved the video! she was brill I thought.
    You are too funny, but let’s not forget talented. Happy Sunday. xo

  9. Mary! Mary! Mary! … are we watching the same video?!! That is funny and I know a thing or two about funny!! Great post Slim and yes … we have known all along – the trend setter that ya’ be. Keep on settin’!! xo

  10. What a fun post!

    Good to hear you are home safe from the kidnapping and in such good humor too.

    Ha ha! The Bachlorette audition was hilarious. 🙂

    My daughter and I laughed our heads off this morning when we watched it. She immediately sent the link to a few of her girlfriends. Thanks a million.

  11. Too funny!! – you and the freaking bachelorette – is she for real? The next Ellen? Well I can’t believe all those copycats. Shame on them. Glad you’re safe and sound.

  12. I’ve been copying you for years… the only difference between me and KL and J.G. is in the small matter of resources 🙂 No one would ever guess looking at me that I’m doing everything I can to be like slim. I do however have a nice hydrangea growing outside our condo that might make you wonder…

Would love to hear from you!
