Bette Davis Overload

Pretty Lady has figured out that the chief benefit of her new hairdo is that it goes so well with her CarolAnn Wachter hat collection.


Sadly, if this phase continues, she's going to have to invest in another tube of Pompeii-colored lipstick. The old one has fossilized from lack of use.


Ah, well. Back to the twentieth century with thee, Bette, dear.


Update: How do y'all like this for a new profile photo?

danonymous said...

prettylady said...

I'm blushing.

Judge Well Ye Wolves said...

Crom said...

Mail call.

Worth the wait!

danonymous said...

whoopee....
A picket, a pocket, I'm looking for my socket.
BUt Pretty Lady...I LOVE THE BOTTOM PIC WITH THE PURSED LIPS AND AUNT BETTY"S NECKLACE THE BEST BY FAR>
It's Brooklyn. good

prettylady said...

All right, then, the 'ayes' have it.

Desert Cat said...

I'm late to the party, but I'm actually partial to the smile in #3.

Judge Well Ye Wolves said...

Although I would prefer to have a wider range of choices, maybe 20 or so. In this limited group, I'm partial to #1- because it has the most "attitidue".

Judge Well Ye Wolves said...

Will you change the header to:
"Pretty Lady. Armed and Fabulous"
?

Morris said...

"Pretty Lady. Armed and Fabulous"

*grin*

Yeah, it might give the guys some warning.... and some pause.

prettylady said...

Twenty??? You want twenty choices? Do know what it cost Pretty Lady in terms of wear and tear on her NarcisoMeter to post four??

Dream on. Pretty Lady foresees a few weeks of posts on Deep, Serious, Ascetic topics as it is.

And Morris, any fellow who is not sufficiently Warned and Terrified already is a fool indeed.

MikeT said...

The third one is pretty damn hot

Desert Cat said...

Yes. Her eyes have their allure, but it's her smile that just takes you away.

Do know what it cost Pretty Lady in terms of wear and tear on her NarcisoMeter to post four??

Another way of saying "I'm shy and I couldn't possibly..."? Aw c'mon. You know you love the worship. :)

Judge Well Ye Wolves said...

OK, how about 20 deep, serious, ascetic posts of Very Important Topics- each with a new picture attached.
Best of both worlds, I'm thinking.
Yes, I know that humility is one of the bases of PL's being. I have to balance that with the appreciation of visual pleasantness that is one of my core values.
ALTHOUGH, I recognize that it's your world, and I bow to your rules.
I am, or course, grateful for the 4. There are certain good things of which there is never too much.

mtizibel said...

Fabulous, dear. I'm coveting that necklace.

k said...

OH, mitzibel, I want it too!!!

And I'm actually with DC and co. on #3. They're all great. But I love the smile. Are those dimples I see?!?

Oh, such a hat!!!

I haven't worn one regularly since someone stole my fedora at a bar in...19..87? Somewhere around there.

Broke my heart, it did, and I've been mourning it, hatless, ever since.

mallarmade said...

are you by any chance an old recovering alcoholic living in santa fe,circa 1982?

prettylady said...

No, I am a Pretty Lady living in Brooklyn, circa 2007, mm. YOU are the hag with the drug problem.

Judge Well Ye Wolves said...

mallarmade- please understand that I am not making light of your request, but you may want to restrict the variable [you]in your query.
PL would have been about 14 (I'm SWAGuessing) in that time frame.

Judge Well Ye Wolves said...

Damn, I wish I had your talent for spotting bad intent. I also wish you didn't have to have developed it. I wish I was 6'8" as well. So it goes...

prettylady said...

JWYW, aren't you sweet. The truth is that Pretty Lady has only acquired one committed troll in the course of her career, despite her best efforts at controversy; this lone, spiteful creature is moreover very easy to spot, due to her highly recognizable typing idiosyncrasies.

It is, truly, tragic. What does a person have to DO to whip up a few flame wars around here?

Judge Well Ye Wolves said...

OK- how about this:
"Crom-
You SUCK at being dull and moronic. If you check your sources a little more carefully, I'm sure you would (not surprisingly) find that you are exactly correct..."
Nah, it just doesn't wash, does it?
I'm a "flamin'" failure. Guess I have to go drink a pint of G to assuage the pain- which was the plan for after work anyway, actually.

The Aardvark said...

Kawaii!

And to briefly indulge my fondness for Tex Avery cartoons:

Woof!
(I shall not, however, beat my head with an oversized mallet.)

Granny J said...

As for the Bette Davis reference, the hat,yes. But the hair? No, no !! Hie thee to a salon immediately!!
