The Side Pony Does Exist!

As promised, my opinion of why I think the Side Ponytail is the best new hairstyle.... since the Gumby. Enjoy!

My Side Pony obsession started over the last couple weeks. Personally, my day starts with a Low Back Ponytail, usually because I forget to shampoo until I look in the mirror and see it's too late. When evening comes, and I'm chatting at dinner or sharing wine on the porch, I start to slowly move my Low Back Ponytail to the side and over my front left shoulder, and yes, to the emerging trend of the Side Pony. It’s become my slightly flirty alternative to the sillier looking, finger twirl.

Unlike the High Back Pony, which can be slimming, but can also look tarty, or the Low Back Pony, which can look like all business and no party in the front, the Side Pony shows off longer hair, but looks neat on presentation and incorporates the fun spirit of Pigs Tails.

On a recent night out, we found fantastic examples of the Side Pony. At the M Bar, we noticed the cute bartender who boldly sported the Very High Side Pony. She had a perfect, slick 80’s, American Apparel billboard look to compliment her saucy hair. Next, we found the dignified, Low Side Pony patron, who complimented her perfect little black dress with a sweet Side Swoop Pony. She had more of an Audrey approach to the Side Pony, wearing her style more refined, with just a hint of coquette.

So what’s my reason for fixating on a mere hairstyle? Not exactly sure, but I did find some more great examples of this fashionable

trend with the Side Swept Vogue dress highlights. Cheers!

Last Night, I Dreamt of the Kardashians

How better to spend a dreamy, lay-over night than finding one's lost way around an ancient, mysterious London Lake and bonding with the fabulous Kardashians!??

My night started with a missed flight from Los Angeles, because as usual, I left for the airport at the last possible moment, leaving no room for error, and more likely traffic. After a desperate and stressful hour, trying to pursued security that I needed to be on that departing plane, I missed the flight, and I ruined my travel plans - connections and all. I ended up alone and late night in London and wondered how I would find my way to Germany, where my family was waiting for me.

All of us delayed travelers were waiting for our next connecting flight, and we had a few hours to spare but needed to stay close to the airport. I decided to go on an exploratory walk around the local "Lake", which was more like a huge, American Great Lake. I bought a map to help guide my way along little inlets and bordering insels. Throughout my night's hike, there were scary turns, and it was definitely not a safe place to walk alone, especially through the lakeside brush. Think Dante's pre-spiral time, on the mountainside, with the she-wolf.....but less dramatic, and obviously, less significant.

After my tough travels, you can imagine how happy I was to find Kim Kardashian. She was enjoying an ice cream cone and big plate of french fries, and I wondered if it really was the Quick Trim that kept her so thin? Kim introduced me to several high school friends, who were playing flute and bongo-type instruments in the lakeside park. The band members had dreds and super high, smiley faces. Everyone was so proud to see Kim and her sisters with all their recent, family fame.

Back at the Kardashian hotel suite, my last, non-waking moments were talking to Courtney and Bruce about a baby shower party that the family was going to that night. They asked if I had baby shower-type gift from Lanya, and I worried about how unforgiving my chiffon tops would be for a 9 month pregnant mother! Fortunately then, I remembered my new baby dress items, and we were all so happy :). Finally, I could stop pushing the snooze button, and I was able to successfully greet the lovely Day!

Hope you have similar, happy Ryan Seacrest Productions inspired Dreams!
