Introducing…

You’ll have to excuse this post for not really relating to fashion. At all. Sorry.

On Saturday I went to the Honda dealership with my dad to pick out a new car, since the lease was up on my black SUV.

This beautiful sage green CRV is my new baby!! I love it so much, and I think the color is gorgeous–so shimmery and opalescent.

Traditionally I name all of my cars so I’m going to have to come up with one for him (my cars are always male). Previous cars have included “Apollo”–yellow beetle, “Gary”–grey civic, and “Rocky”–black outlander).

Any name suggestions? Winner gets a shout-out on PSS!

  • I would say he looks like a Steve. But said with kind of a lisp and a little weak wrist action πŸ™‚

  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Honda CRV. I bought mine 8 years ago and it is still ticking. They are such great, reliable cars, get good gas mileage for an SUV and so much fun to drive. I have several friends that I've talked into buying one I like mine so much. Congrats! Are you leasing this one too?

  • Very very jealous! That Honda CRV is ahhh-dorable! I wish I had a car as pretty as that. Here's to some fab joy rides, huh?

  • Beautiful new suv! wow! How about naming it a girls name this time. Maybe Joan, Betty, or Roxanne?! Oh, I don't know! Have fun coming up with a name! lol

  • Yay new car!!! I love that new car smell. Name it something dramatic and masculine…like Sebastian!

  • Herbert! That name cracks me up!

  • I name my cars too – though I still have the one I got for my sweet sixteen, a silver Jeep Cherokee named Bertha. Big B will still live at my parents when I move to NYC (love her too much to part with her). I think Sage is actually a great name for your new car!

  • Bee

    I know you typically go with guy names for your cars, but I took one look at that thing and thought "Fern". I love the color! :]

  • Congratulations! Getting a new car is so exciting! Since it's crossover, I'd chose one of those gender-neutral names that's good for either a boy or a girl…like Sam, or Charlie, or Frankie (oooh, Frankie would be really cute!)

  • OSCAR!
    For 2 reasons:

    1. He's green

    2. It's just in time for the Oscar's…which would actually make this post related to fashion πŸ™‚

    Congrats on the new wheels and drive safely, friend! I, too, have named my cars..

    Tabatha the Tan Tarantula (''87 Mitsubishi Tredia)

    The Black Bullet (Chevy Cavolier)

    DJ Jazzy Jetta (VW Jetta)

    Buggernuts (VW Bug)

    For it's opalescence (I'm not even sure that's a real word!), how about "Opie"? Whatever you decide on, enjoy!

  • I love the Honda CRV…my kids named mine Clifford…it is big and red like the dog.

  • Congrats! We LOOOOOVE our CRV. Enjoy him!

  • ooo cute car!! i don't know why but the name Randy suddenly comes to mind … totally random suggestion hehe =P it seems that depending on the lighting, the car changes colors!!

  • Well he's green so surely something like Kermit or The Hulk…..or is that too obvious?!

  • He looks like a Henry to me πŸ™‚
    Bisous,

  • Love the new whip, when I saw the pic of you new ride CHAZ, popped in my mind it's hip and it should relate to you so Chazz only someone Extraordinarily Stylish would roll around town in a car named CHAZ.

  • Nice car. I'm not sure what to name it. Maybe Sage, I knew a guy with the name once. Or you could try another name like Brett, Oscar, Humphrey, or Lee.

  • How bout Denver, Sage, Scout, or Forrest??

    Or you could name it Christopher Robin.

    Then it would be the Christopher Robin Vehicle.

    CRV. πŸ™‚

  • I don't name cars, but I do name inanimate animals (like my dinosaur piggy bank Max or my alligator ring Harold). But that car looks like a David – that name always feels strong, classic, dependable to me.

  • Donna

    Jayde!

  • I love the color!!! Maybe call him cory or a mike

  • Your new car is so pretty! I've always wanted to lease a vehicle, I think when I'm ready to give up my next car I'm going to do just that.
    I'm terrible with names but I think it's adorable that you name your cars!

  • I have no idea why, but He-Man popped into my head… lol. Maybe because my favorite toys as a kid where She-Ra dolls?! But the car really does remind me of He-Man… I'm such a dork.
    Yay, new car! We lease my car as well, so we get to go pick out something new every three years… it's fun πŸ™‚

  • LOL! my cars have always been girls…my last car was named "disneyland mercedes" because i was so excited when i got it that i was like a little kid excited the night before you are going to disneyland and because i have always wanted a mercedes. it was a silver jetta….not a mercedes, which makes it even funnier. i think you should name your car "ROARBERT" because my son has a scentsy stuffed animal lion (get it…roar-bert…hahahhaha) and that is his name. we say goodnight to roarbert every night and i think it is such a cute name!

    p.s. my current car is a volvo and i never named her. now i feel bad. =)

  • My mom has a CRV that I named Holly. She loves her CRV. Every member of my family has a honda with a name starting with an H. But that's because everyone enlists me to name their car for them… πŸ˜‰ So my suggestion is Heather or Haranu (Japanese name meaning green). Except those are both girl names…. So if it must be a boy I suggest Howie.
    Enjoy your new car!

  • Yay! That's so fun/exciting/awesome! When I bought my white, convertible VW bug last year I named her Ellie Lou πŸ™‚ and I love her to death! πŸ™‚

    When I saw your new car I automatically thought of the name Jasper! I don't know why but I think it sounds fitting. Congrats again- big ticket items are really fun to purchase πŸ™‚

    hearts and hugs,

    Nina

  • Just discovered your blog, very cute! Along with the car πŸ™‚

    Hmmm…it's a green color…what about The Hulk? Hehe

    You seem to like mythological names, maybe Hercules?

    Or some alliteration with Stetson the Sage SUV? It's also goes with the Texas/cowboy roots πŸ˜‰

    Happy Friday!

  • Shiny! I think you should call it Brenda.

  • Congratulations on your new car! That's so exciting!

    The only names I could think of for your car are Dorothy and Glinda. I was trying to think of a name that was pretty, shiny and/or sparkly and for some reason the Wizard of Oz popped into my head (Dorothy for her sparkly red shoes and Glinda for her sparkly pink dress)

    Hope that helps at all…

  • He looks like a Sterling (because of his silver). Or Cash (because of cashmere).

  • OR! He can have a first AND last name: Cash Sterling. Brilliant if I don't say so myself.

    One more comment, PSS…I'm sorry I forgot to add this to my original comment…

    I voted for your Mom's blog – I read it as well and it's amazing, just like you!

  • […] Friday the medical center was closed to non-essential personnel, and I've never been more happy to be called non-essential in my life. HB and I slept in, made some coffee, and I decided my new pair of Wildfox silvery-grey (gorgeous) denim leggings needed hemming. My only dilemma was that everything was closed and I didn't dare venture too far out of my neighborhood with my brand new wheels. […]

  • Awesome!! Congratulations Krisina! πŸ˜€
