Is she a nurse? Is she selling ice cream? No! She's taking part in the Bloggers Do It Better interpretation of the White-Out spring trend (wow, was that a mouthful, or what?).

I don't know about this look -- I really don't. I like the idea of it, and I like it on other women, but I don't think that I like it on me. Done right, it looks sophisticated and elegant. Done wrong? Hmmm .... Suffice it to say that I don't think I'm looking very sophisticated or elegant in these shots. Maybe my top needed to be more flowy or silky or something ...And maybe heels instead of boots would have been a bit better.
Actually, I just realized who I look like! I look like Mr. Clean!
Now I'm disappointed that I didn't think of that before! I could have worn a t-shirt, and a hoop in one ear. And what a great Halloween costume this could be. Do you remember the Mr. Clean jingle?
Mr. Clean gets rid of dirt and grime
And grease in just a minute
Mr. Clean will clean your whole house
And everything that's in it
|Verse 1|| |
Floors, doors, walls, halls
White sidewall tires and old golfballs
Sinks, stoves, bathtubs he'll do
He'll even help clean laundry, too.
|Verse 2|| |
Can he clean a kitchen sink?
Quicker than a wink.
Can he clean a window sash?
Faster than a flash.
Can he clean a dirty mirror?
He'll make it bright and clearer.
Can he clean a diamond ring?
Mr. Clean cleans anything.
And what about the commercial?
I did have fun trying this spring trend, and it was definitely not something I would have tried before I became a fashion troll! What do you think I could have done differently?
Other interesting "white" things include:
- The Woman in White is a book by Wilkie Collins, which was first published in book form in 1860. It is considered to be one of the first mystery novels.
- White balance is arguably, one of the most important settings on a digital camera. Adjusting this setting ensures that the white colors you see also appear white in your pictures.
- White dwarfs are the corpses of stars. They are stars that have used up all their fuel and lack the temperature and pressure to continue fusion in their core. They are very small and very faint, so they are hard to detect.
- The White Mountains are a mountain range in New Hampshire -- they are thought to be the most rugged mountains in New England.
- The White House is the only home of a head of state that is open to the public, free of charge. Theodore Roosevelt officially gave the White House its name in 1901.
- Wite-Out was used in the olden days to correct typing mistakes.
- An item that creates more trouble than it's worth is called a white elephant.
