Quick birthday shout out to the one and only Diane Keaton, queen of turtlenecks, hats, and wearing shades inside, who made the role of Annie Hall notorious with her impeccable boyish style and phenomenal performance that dubbed her a style icon to many. Who wouldn’t want to dress in a Brooklyn half-buttoned vest with an ugly Father’s Day tie and cool baggy khakis, hat in toe, strutting around New York with a basket weave tote like I’m too busy and important to care because I’m running errands (that would be me, not her). We love how funny, awkward, corky, vulnerable and what an intellectual nerd she is, and that’s why we love her. Her career and accomplishments span decades of movies like the Godfather, First Wives’ Club (one of my favorite movies), Father Of The Bride Part 1 and 2, The Other Sister (another all time fav), and Hanging Up to name a few. Let’s talk style, though, my goodness, can this woman dress. She makes pantsuit separates look so chic and cool, I swear her style is a reaction to a childhood spent dressing in overly feminine frilly cupcake dresses by her mother. You know, she has the borrowed boyfriend pieces vibe going on. Girlfriend must jog in power suits. Yes, the almighty Keaton isn’t afraid to wear turtlenecks, belts, hats, scarves, and ties…so why should we be?
Happy Birthday, Diane Keaton!
Oh, hello. Happy New Year’s everyone! Thank you guys so much for reading and supporting Everyday Renée! It truly amazes me. I have a really long list of so called resolutions ahead of me for 2017 (so I better get to work) and I can’t wait to share them with you. What’s your New Year’s resolution?
I happen to love when this holiday comes around, it’s a new beginning, clean slate, new outlooks and perspectives…and if you have woken up in a strange, dark and unfamiliar place with a pierced lip and like one eyebrow shaved this morning followed by a hangover, (first, get out immediately, then dial Uber), it doesn’t count due to last night’s New Year’s Eve bash in 2016. All a blur, really.
2017 calls for letting go of old negative hang ups, taking care of yourself first, then the rest will follow, only then, you will find the smile creeping in and before you know it, you’re laughing again. Cheers to a new year, new goals, love and happiness, extraordinary adventures, travel, financial fortune, good health and always celebrate with a few pieces to help you start the year off right.
P.s. Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook for further musings.
Sincerely, Jade Reason
Dear Santa, while the reindeer are slayin’ and the carolers are caroling, I would love to throw a snowball at my mailman’s head for driving so fast up my street he could run somebody over…and he makes my dog howl every time too. Or Santa, I plan to prove how naughty or nice I’m am by walking my dog down to my neighbor’s house so Bodhi (my adorable little yorkie-poo) can take a shit on her yard like she allows her dog to do to mine. While I’m at that, I might as well sneak some pot into the this years’ Christmas cookies, I can’t stand my family sober. And lastly, I threw out my back having shower sex with my boyfriend, making it a notoriously difficult task for cutting, taping and wrapping any holiday gifts. And whenever there is a Christmas special or musical, right on queue, a roll of the eyes and a flip of the bird due to the fact that I’m devoid of any sentiment. Can’t you tell I can’t wait til 2016 is over?
