"Fiery," huh?

As I have vented elsewhere, the supremely gendered notion of a "temperament problem" irks me to no end. And if the woman in question is a Latina? Well, then, she must be "fiery," too.

So in honor of Sonia Sotomayor, who I'm thrilled to cheer on in her quest to become the first Latina on the United States Supreme Court, let's take in some "fiery" eye candy that's refreshingly free of cultural stereotypes. On to the pretty pictures!

Vintage glass drop earrings from WildArtDesigns

Natural Obsessions yarn so luscious it almost makes me want to learn how to knit

Don't try to get between me and a carne adovada burrito

A certain someone's red satin wedding shoes

I've been stalking the bracelet that matched this coral and gold emunique necklace for months. Sadly, the bracelet sold... but this necklace is equally lust-worthy

Breathtaking parrot tulips from La Vie En Rose

My all-time favorite Oscar dress, a Ben de Lisi on Queen Kate Winslet in 2002


  1. mmmmmmmm emunique - love her stuff! and parrot tulips, le sigh

  2. I love that Ben de Lisi dress. I think it is one of my all-time favorites as well.

  3. As far as I know, every new bride deserves a two-month anniversary gift. Send T off to etsy to make it happen! ; )

  4. Hmmm, I think I already bought myself a two-month anniversary gift: remember that Nanette Lepore dress that I was dying over before the wedding but couldn't justify? Half-off at Saks! But LOVE the way you think!

  5. Love that dress...and I can't get enough of those shoes :)

  6. I popped right over to etsy and bought those earrings!


C'mon, make my day...
