I'm gone get me some a that

The Sartorialist often inspires my wardrobe choices.
I love his eye for capturing stylish people on the street.
This is an unusal post for him.

I guess it's time to get some Liberty of London fabric and attempt a simple frock.

It is a new season of Project Runway, after all.
Then again, I've tried that before...

About the title: I've been reading The Help.
Sometimes the Southern vernacular just suits a thought.
Like on Designing Women when Charlene says,
"actually back home we call it F.T.S... Fixin' To Start
And then when it finally arrives, you say your cousin's visiting."
That still makes me chuckle.
And it's useful.

Anyone know who said:
"Git 'er done?"
First one who gits it can choose a pair of earrings from Tallulahs.

I think Southern vernacular is great!
I wondered what to say to my group, I used to always say "Girls" now that we've added Eli I think "ya'll" is perfect!!
Wasn't Larry the Cable Guy the one who said Git'er Done?!! :)
Did you enjoy the Help?
I'm hoping to finish by tomorrow!!

I love Designing Women! One of my favorites next to Mash and Golden Girls!

You win, you win, you win!

I agree, you all is more effective. "You" seems too direct and forceful sometimes. I hardly ever say "you guys" anymore. I have not yet found "fixin'" in my lingo yet. Though sometimes I do think it in my head, I try to prevent it from coming out of my mouth!

I often get confused with a Northerner because I moved here from New York with a lot of Northerners. I had managed to obliterate fixin' from my vocabulary up there but every once in awhile, it would slip out and the NYers would look at me sort of cross-eyed as if I were speaking another language. When we moved to Atlanta, fixin' snuck back in like a teenager after curfew. It immediately takes me back to lounging by the pool on a hot summer day and Timmy from across the street teasing me. "I'm fixin' to slap you upside the head if you don't quit!"

I keep looking at that picture of the Designing Women and wishing big hair would come back in style...
