Celebrating a Year of Inappropriateness

Celebrating a Year of Inappropriateness

Holy crap – happy holidays! We’re ending the year by taking a look back. Well, we’re honestly just tired, or drunk on the nog, and we couldn’t think of a topic.

So, we thought we’d reflect on the past year and highlight some of our favorite pieces of whit and banter, in case you missed them. Or you just want to read them again because they’re that good.

Although we share our insights every single week, we’ll provide a recap this season by season.


We started the year with questions: What did we do before the Internet? What are the challenges to community and education? What is a $%@-hole country? Actually, this was all a big plug for shopping at Nixon & Company. But what a great start to 2018!

In February, we took a trip to Vegas and came back with wise advice for summer fashions. We drew inspiration from a simpler time, and shared the latest on jumpers, rompers, and stripes. We were just warming up.

Then we headed into St. Patrick’s Day with 4 ways to celebrate. There was plenty of talk of getting tied up. Okay, it was actually about belts. Get your head out of the gutter.


As spring approached, we addressed an issue at the top of everyone’s minds: The moist air and what that means to hair. True, we did provide some solid advice on products, cuts, and styling. But really, we just wanted to say moist.

In May, we recognized our moms and encouraged everyone to celebrate Mother’s Day with new stuff from Nixon & Co. We still love these Beljoy bracelets, made by a company that creates jewelry-making jobs for the people of Haiti.

Next, we offered four tips for making sure dad would never be a dud on Father’s Day. First, fix his do. Second, tame those caterpillars. Three, update his style. The fourth? You’ll have to read it.


When summer came, we celebrated National Friendship Day and we raised our glasses to all our friends who know where we buried the bodies. In August, Kelly suggested a way to unwind on National Relaxation Day. It involved a hot and tender approach using an instrument of loving heat and soft strokes. Intrigued? I bet! Moving on, we then dug deep into what makes Kelly tick. Is she a B#$%&, or just a Virgo?


Finally, moving into the last quarter, we were in high gear, spouting off all the reasons we love tacos. I don’t make this up. Then we shared deep thoughts on winter, which mainly consisted of: Stop shaving. And this brought us full circle to just a few weeks ago, when we brought everyone up to speed on Percy the Puny Poinsettia and, of course, our love of these awesome pants.

So, it’s been a great year, full of inappropriateness, and there’s more where these came from.  We don’t always reflect on all the wisdom we’ve shared, so we were happy to do it here. And it let us create a whole blog out of stuff we’ve already said.

Until next year, thanks for reading. May you all have a joyous holiday and a very happy and healthy 2019. We’ll see you then!

Fall’s Not Funny

Fall’s Not Funny

No kidding. It’s not. The subject is repetitive (it does happen every year, ladies. Duh). It’s also confusing. One day it’s 90 degrees, the next day it’s bleak and cold. The inconsistency wears on people, and we’re already dreading the “Uggs and Shorts” combos.

We’re not joking here. These are indeed both dull and scary times. To get through it all, we’re just going to talk it out. Right here.

Fall brings out all the feels

While fall is boring, it still comes with heated debate. Basically, the question in the air is “Are we ready for it?” Some of us are putting the brakes on September. Others couldn’t ingest their pumpkin faster if they free-based it.

And the mere mention of fall brings out all the opinions, no matter how diverse.

Amber says: I wish people would stop putting out their fall decorations so soon.

Kelly says: Why does King Soopers already have Christmas stuff out?

Melissa says: I’m excited to “fall” into my new hat.

To which Kelly replies: Stop, Melissa, you’re such a cheese head.

But in all seriousness

Fall is here September 22nd, whether we’re ready or not. And, despite the bad judgment of our local grocery store, Kelly says we’re ready. (And what Kelly says, goes. See last week’s blog: “I’m not a b@$!h. I’m a Virgo.”)

So, all kidding aside, we’re here to help you embrace the season. It’s time to update your wardrobe, cast aside summer, and bring in the fall. If your ability to shift gears is a little rusty, don’t fear. Rust is in! Check out these fall fashions at Nixon and Company:

Like these comfy, stylish boyfriend corduroy slouch pants – in rust! Slouch means you can wear them and still have some fall apple pie. “Boyfriend” means you’ll always love them – even after the next boyfriend pair comes along.

Another great fall color – green. In fact, we love o-luv. These amazing fedoras are classic and fun. Plus they let you go a whole other day without shampooing. Check out this one here.

And, finally, fall wouldn’t feel right without slipping into jeans: Ripped, Cropped and Skinny. (Hey, those should be the alter-egos of Kelly, Amber, and Melissa the next time they go to Vegas? I like it!) Seriously, we have the styles. Shop online or in the store!

Alas, put the shorts away.

No matter how you feel about it, fall is here and these looks are hot, hot, hot. We hope we’ve inspired you to throw on some layers and put the shorts away. Even though, technically, in Colorado, you could still wear shorts in winter.

Shorts in winter? What? Amber says: I don’t even wear my shorts in summer.

Focus Amber. The topic is fall.

And it’s here. Bring on the football, the leaves, the decorations, and the pumpkin Oreos. Break out the wine. It’s not funny. But it’s happening.
