every once in a wile, i get these weird span emails at my work account. you know the ones, they are usually talking about weight loss or little blue pills. i always just delete and ignore them. last friday, though, i got one that caught my attention....and not in a good way. it was the tackiest, most horrible marketing i have ever seen. the subject line (not kidding you) said, "the lord came back in 3 days you can get smaller in three days."

who thinks this will work? and who actually sees that subject line and clicks on the link? there must be someone, or else they wouldn't send them out, right?

either way, it was tacky and ridiculous. another one for my trash box.

i hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

two birds


  1. Pretty Spring dresses and ankle boots? LOVE! You both look so cute. And that is definitely one of the worst subject lines ever!

    The Other Side of Gray

  2. I love both dresses but Nora I want to steal this look right off ya! Such gorgeous colors and loving those fringe booties!!

    Pearls & Paws

  3. That second dress is perfect for spring!

  4. I love these dresses! Such beautiful colours.

  5. We get some funny spam mail at work - but that is definitely a new one! How ridiculous :D

    I love both of these looks, but I must say I want to steal everything that Nora is wearing!! I'm swooning over those yellow booties and that bird dress :)

  6. LOVE both of these dresses - they look adorable! and nora I want those shoes!!

  7. That is super tacky! Just when you think people can't stoop to a new low. LOVE both dresses! So pretty and colorful. You both look great. Have a great week!

  8. What a ridiculous spam.

    Loving the boots though : )


  9. Oh spam. There have been some good ones come across my mailbox in my many working years too.

    I love both of your dresses and I really love Nora's boots!

  11. Urgh what horrid marketing! Yes, who is stupid enough to click on it!!! You look so fab, what amazing blue touches your dresses have, so vibrant and pretty!!!! Happy Easter xxx

  12. I love my spam mail at work - it's a lot of weird stuff from Asia. I have a cartoon printed from one - it's Chinese, I have no idea what it says, but it's a cat with an eye patch shooting a's weird.

    ANYHOW - great takes on this outfit - both so spring-y and cute! I want those yellow booties!

  13. You both look so springy! I can't wait for it to warm up a BIT more! :-)

    LOVE both of your dresses, so springy and beautiful!

  17. Megan, I love how your MN tattoo matches your dress.:)

    I'm always amazed at what goes through my spam box. I find it hard to believe anyone falls for it, but there must be enough that they continue to send them out!

  18. I honestly think that there are no depths that some companies will stoop to just to get people to click a link.
    Both looking fab as always x

  19. Love Megan's dress but you're both adorable :)

  20. Hahahahaha. Ya super weird email. I love both of your dresses but I really must say 'how can you model out in the snowy outdoors'? You two are so dedicated to your blog, let me tell ya.

  21. Oh my gosh lol... Tacky subject line! How does anybody fall for it! Love the bold floral print with the yellow boots! Sooo my style!

  24. LOVE this outfit, especially those booties!

    Megan from Chasing Davies
