Keeping Up With The Glamorous (Yet Hideous)

I have to admit, I love reality shows. Almost all kinds of reality shows. It's my guilty pleasure. I take delight in watching how other people live, even if many of today's "reality" shows are not real anymore. One favorite is Kimora Life In The Fab Lane. Another one are the Kardashian series (they have so many).

For the latter, I loved watching the female casts. They are gorgeous, vivacious, witty, sexy. Never boring. Yet sorry to say, from what I've seen, I have no respect for the characteristics being shown there. I admire what they're wearing, not the people wearing it. I laugh at their craziness, but not with them. Will I copy their look? Well, I took some inspirations, yes, not blindly though, since most of them are a bit too skimpy for my taste.

And no, I don't think yelling at your Mom, getting pregnant out of wedlock, getting drunk, cursing incessantly, getting married then getting a divorce after 72 (or 76?) days are cool. They are not.

And I'm saying a lil' prayer in my heart that any Mom with teenage daughter(s) who watch the shows will be guided by His grace to explain that those acts are indeed, not cool. Not at all. And yeah, Moms, you can ban the shows from the house, but your daughters can easily sneak off to watch at their friends'. Better teach them to differentiate good role models from the bad ones.

The makeup and clothing are glamorous.

The acts are just plain hideous.

The real people I don't know so it's not my place to judge.

Just my personal opinion...

Yellow top: bYSI (Singapore). White silk chiffon polkadot ruffle shirt: Carolina Herrera. Black slacks: office uniform by Invio. Sandals: Yongki Komaladi. Bag: Aigner (vintage hand-me-down from Mom's closet). Earrings: from Korea. Bracelets: from Shanghai and Jerusalem.

Cute outfit. Yellow is such a happy color.

And I couldn't agree more with what you said. I have 3 teenaged daughters and 1 teenaged son, it's hard but my job is to parent, not friends, so that's what I do.

The yellow top looks lovely on you, LeeAnne. I love how you're bold to wear bright colours to the workplace, it makes you stand out amidst the usual muted colours which people wear to work. And that top has the most adorable details at the collar, I love it. And yeah, I watch the Kardashian series as well, for the outfits and the make-up, not so much for the storyline and the melodrama. Can't say they're a bad influence for young girls, but if a kid who's not properly guided by her parents watches it, it's going to totally misconstrue her values (just my humble opinion).

I got to meet Kris Jenner recently. She's all biz. I agree watch it for fun and don't take it seriously.

somehow you always look good in bright colors, especially yellow and pink. These colors really suit your skin tone. I like the sweet frilly blouse inside. You look pretty and demure. I agree with you about some of the reality shows, they're just not for kids, like temptation island, I think it's a silly show, even watching it feels silly.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Lee ann, you're always so sweet and kind! God bless you!


laura said...

yellow is definitely your color! and I really love the layering with the white top! i love that the details of that top are still visible with the yellow one over it!

You look gorgeous in yellow! Upon first glance I thought the two shirts were one. They look so great together. I will definitely try this with a similar top I have. Thanks for a great idea!

are you taking outfit pics in your office!? that is soo fun!!

LeeAnne, Style N Season said...

Thank you Friends, for all your comments. I still watch reality shows just for fun, I'm definitely no miss goodie2, just a normal gal trying to be a better person everyday, haha! The Kardashians have a lot of very young fans like 9-12 year old girls who are still very impressionable (is that the correct word?) though, so I wish the girls were a bit more responsible in the image they portray, because these young girls look up to them.

@Sharon: Thank you! I definitely will swing by to your giveaway post later on.

@daene: So true!

@miss kwong & @ivana: Thank you! I love your blogs, too, i'm following you via bloglovin!

@kristin: Thank you, and pls visit again soon!

@popchampagne: Yup, overprotecting children is not the answer, I think better teach them differentiate right from wrong, and consequences of our actions.

@Wii: That's exactly what I mean, Wii! Very nicely put.

@Nicole: Actually I admire Kris' sharp business sense, but I wish she's not like anything and everything for money, you know. Thanks for visiting!

@Amelia: Thank you! Of course I'll stop by again, I love reading about daily adventures as a Brit gal in Korea!

@Mongs: Thank you and God bless you too!

@Laura: Thanks, and ow, can I persuade you to win the giveaway? lol.

thanks for bringing this up !
i totally agree with you.. i think reality shows set up this bad standards esp for growing teenagers. they think that Kardashians is real and they must be like Kim in order to be "cool".. while in reality it's really stupid you know..

so thanks for writing this !!! hope more people will come to realize that reality shows arent that reality ish..


LeeAnne, Style N Season said...

@Eliza: I did, thanks for stopping by, and please visit again soon! ^__^

@Michelle: True! We know that it's not real, it's the tweenies that I'm worry about. I heard some parents lamenting that their 10-year-old speaking very rude because they copy some sinetron (I think it's Bawang Merah Bawang Putih), so yeah, this guilty pleasure is definitely more dangerous that it looks!
