Twitter is the Word of the Year!

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Twitter may be the Word of the Year for 2009. But what are your nominees for the Fashion Word/Phrase of the Year? I vote for "harem pants."

P.S. Kind of a rough start to my week so blogging may be light. But how adorable is my Tweet Cloud? Love, happy, fashion, people and sequins: they all give me warm fuzzies. Let's be friends on Twitter and get the warm fuzzies together.

**Updated to Add**
: In lieu of #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter, I will be adopting a list of 10 Twitter Friends of the Week on my right sidebar, which will change every Friday! Check out this week's amazing list and follow them all!


Jenna said...

I need to get a twitter account. Everyone loves it and I think I am missing out!

Style Seduction said...

I am still working out twitter but I think I will get the hang of it soon!

InnyVinny said...

I think I like this list better than FF shout outs...too many to keep up with.

And my word for the year is sequin.

alixrose said...

I agree with Inny, FF can be overwhelming. I always feel pressure and then feel bad if I forgot someone.

Your twitter cloud is adorable. I havent been on there too much the past few days, am house sitting and working on misc stuff...geese I think this just turned into an email... sorry D! ;)

Manju said...

i vote for studs, studs were EVERYWHERE this year

modediktat said...

Hehe... Cool idea.

We have a new expression here in Germany, created during the recession. It's called "Abwrackprämie" - translated "scrapping premium" - the whole idea was crappy, burnt a lot of money, destroyed a lot of slightly(!) used cars just for the stupid idea to boost the automotive industry for five seconds.... FAIL!

And - OMG.... I'm on your Twitter list? AAAAAH! Thanks a bunch, love!

Sending you a big kiss and hug!

modediktat said...

PS.... AAAAAAAAAA hahaha... cool, better read EERYTHING properly...

Jaime said...

I love the tweet cloud! :)

Amy said...

What an adorable idea! I think your idea is so much better than #FF. Lovely!

Also,I love your Twitter cloud- it is so wonderful!


kpeach said...

I'm not a twitterer-but I appreciate those who are:) xo

Dream Sequins said...

@Retro Chick: We're old school besties :)
@Eyeliah: Now that someone's mentioned sequins, I'm thinking sequins!
@daisychain: Thanks, love!
@Jaime: I do, too :)
@Amy: Thank you, dear! I also get stressed out about #FF, too.
@kpeach: Oh I think you would tear it up. We need to bring you to the dark side... muhahaha

nookie said...

Denise said...

Hmmm I will have to agree with you on the "harem pants" conclusion.

Hanako66 said...

you are the sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeetest!

this is such a great idea, i'm sure i will meet so many new twitter friends by checking back every week!

CRHEE said...


tenthings. said...

who knew a year ago that so many lives would be changed by a silly word like 'twitter'.

new friends, new business, laughs, tears, recipes, jokes, deals, all because of twitter.

little did i know how much i would enjoy 'my twitter friends' and long for the day we could all meet up somewhere in person.

fashion word of the year, hmmm...i think for me, it might be ruffles. whether it was t-shirts, sweaters, booties, necklaces or headbands, ruffles were, and still are, everywhere. and i love them.

OceanDreams said...

I like twitter and I mostly twitter quotes, kind of like an online twitter journal of sorts.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Hmm fashion word - sequins is pretty hot. Recessionista was mentioned and is also pretty popular!

Great follower friends idea!

Maria Confer said...

Your twitter cloud is adorable. What a great idea to list your twitter picks.

I hope your week gets better.


Cindy Whitehead said...

My Boyy Bag came today - so thank you again for all your help! With out you it would not have happened (-:

I posted pics and a thank you to you w/link back on my blog - can yuo tell how excited I am??

xo Cindy

Denise @ Swelle said...

I'm so out of the loop on twitter lately, I miss the chats with all the lovelies. I also find #FF to be a bit high maintenance but I'm sure to thank everyone who mentions me or I'd feel like a big jerk! I like your alternative.

Let's word...hmmm. I don't think I have a buzz word but along the lines of your harem pants I seem to have mentioned 'dropped crotch pants' quite a few times! I went from hating them last year to appreciating a well designed pair, but I still don't have any for fear I'd look like an elephant's butt!

Or tulle! Hey, I thought that would have been yours!

dot said...

I love it! A contest!

I'd like to put my vote in for 'bootie'. It is just such a stupid word, but the fashion item that has consistently gotten me more excited than anything else is a beautiful bootie - and I've yet to purchase a pair, which is probably why my obsession is growing (those things tend to calm down once I've got what I want).

& it's just such a stupid word!

My 2nd choice would be 'snood'.

(I have a twitter account but I refuse to get updates sent to me, I rarely if ever tweet, as I think a girl has to take a stand in life, and we can't jump on every band wagon. But I said the same thing about facebook!)

I've missed you, Dee. I've been so busy & haven't been visiting blogs enough. Hope you're wonderfully well in the big apple. xoxo

p.s. in glancing thru the comments, yeah, studs & sequins... each excellent nominations.

Chessa! said...

FF can be a bit stressful for the reasons that everyone pointed out.
your cloud is so cute. love it.

Susan said...

gorgeous tweet cloud! :))

Gabbi said...
