Waffler wrap-up and recent poll results

Posted on

Okay, so Bridesmaids didn’t win the Oscar on Sunday for best original sceenplay…

but according to the polls here at The Waffler, 56% of readers loved this movie and 32% of readers want to see it. Pictured above is Bridesmaids’ co-writer, Kristin Wiig, wearing a  J. Mendel flesh-colored gown on the red carpet. What do you think of it — pretty and romantic or too reminiscent of pantyhose?

And while we’re on the topic of couture, when I posted a little red dress waffle in an ode to Valentine’s Day, Diane von Furstenberg’s Kimmie Dress came in first with 44% of the vote.

Coming in second with 19% of the vote was the How Can You Nantes? Dress by Modcloth.

If red is not your color, maybe turquoise is. Rebekah, creator of Potholes to Pantyhose, digs it so much she’s going to paint her living and dining room this bold color.

When I posted her waffle about whether or not she should keep her current black couch and rugs, 84% voted for Rebekah to keep them. 88% thought her current orange dining chairs will also go well with the new turqoise walls.

I caught up with Rebekah earlier in the week. She was suffering from the flu and wrote this response in her pj’s, tissue box by her side:

I’ve picked the final paint color which is Valspar’s Turquoise Tint (5006-10B) and I can’t wait to get started. I am keeping the rugs and chairs per your fans recommendation. Thanks again for allowing me to guest post!

Feel better, Rebekah, and don’t forget to send us your “after” pics!

My favorite part of that house was actually outside the house, but then again I’m a sucker for a covered porch.

Have a great weekend!
