Often I sit down to write a post and think, "I have nothing to say" - my husband wishes I had that problem- but then I start surfing the internet and immediately become enraged or enthralled by something I see. This is how things went today, for instance:
- I had nothing to say
- I started reviewing BET dresses and decided to post re: Andra Day's cute vintage dress (above)
- I got sucked into a video about Beyonce's BET performance on US Weekly online
- At 1:52 in the video the hostess describes the embellishment on Bey's bodysuit as SAVARSKI crystals
- HOLD THE PHONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- My real post was born
Let's clear this up right now because it is SELDOM that I hear anyone pronounce the Austrian crystal producer, Swarovski, correctly (and this includes people in the industry who should know better). The proper pronunciation is swar-Ov-skee, emphasis on the second syllable. If phonetics don't make sense to you, here's a video with Nathalie Colin, Swarovski's Creative Director, and Gloria Gaynor, no intro needed, and both women say Swarovski by 0:23.
Thank you, YouTube, for solving the world's problems (and my pet peeves) yet again.
