Roxanne, you don't have to put on the red light...

 

How many people are lucky enough to have a song titled with their name? A handful for sure, but how many of those people can say that the song is sung by Sting and about a hooker who walks the streets? Yup, me. Well to the hundreds of "original" people who thought they would be the very first to sing "Roxanne" to me, I will put on the red light...just send on over one of those delicious red coats, and I will happily hit the streets.

I have a cousin named Roxanne and I just think it's the cutest name ever...you lucky duck. I may not have a song named after me, but I gladly claim the lyrics in Hotel California where they sing: "her mind is Tiffany twisted. she's got the Mercedez Benz"...xo

Thank you for all your awesome comments on my blog!

I laughed when I read your comment about "hitting the streets". I love what the woman in the first picture is wearing.

My friend, Sheena, gets grief whenever "Funky Cold Medina" comes on. (For the record, she is not a man. LOL!!!!)

Stephanie Joanna said...

ooohhhh love the red coats, especially the first one! And you should consider yourself lucky. I always wished there was a song associated with my name. I'd take any song - even one about a hooker! :)

Diana Mieczan said...

Kelsey said...

Insert music: "Lady in red..." :P
Red coats are awesome btw. They look sophisticated, and original, and a bit artsy, which I like a lot ^^

That first pic is my all-time favorite from the Sartorialist. I just think that the woman photographed exudes everything I want to be as a woman--confident, poised, elegant and beautiful. Love that photo.

I was JUST gifted a beautiful red coat from my mother for christmas.. I absolutely love it! Every time I wear it, I instantly feel sophisticated and put together.. it's a magical coat, really... :)

Ash said...

PS I don't know any Ashley songs, but I've always loathed, like literal hatred, towards girls who had songs named after them.. I guess i always pictured their boyfriends serenading them- I can see why your case is slightly different ;) guess the grass isn't always greener..

Oh...love, love, love the outfit in the first picture here. Hm...I actually own a red spring coat - maybe I should wear that when going to Paris? Won't be wearing stilettos though. Looks fantastic, but unfortunately very inconvenient for sightseeing around town.

haha, too cute! I love these red coats!

The only I have named after me is apparently a possessed car from a Stephen King novel!

Bromeliad said...

Wow. Smashing color.
