Meri Brown and her Wet Bar of Tears

Meri is by far the least attractive of the wives. Her facial features are masculine and the shake-n-bake orange tan does her no favors. Her layered hair always looks frizzy, and she really needs a make-up tutorial. But what bothers me most is her taste in shoes!  I’m a shoe girl, and it’s one of the first things I notice. I have literally never seen her in a decent pair of shoes. She wears either clunky man-boots, or clunky sandals. Get rid of those clodhoppers!

True, true and true again.  When you are a stout person, the things she wears only accentuate that even more..  And if you have cankles wearing skirts, shorts with chunky shoes and gladiator sandals only brings more attention to them.  I'm short so I avoid wearing skirts below my knees or capri's, which make me look even shorter.

Cuffed jeans, too, which is a thing again. If you’ve got short legs or are a bit big, cuffed jeans only make it worse. Just because something is a trend doesn’t mean it works on everyone.

She does have a manly look and it’s worse now that she’s heavier. Watching her walk in recent seasons, she lumbers with rounded shoulders, like a giant sequoia with feet. There’s nothing feminine about her.

Meri has very coarse features, and unfortunately, just about everything she does emphasizes the coarseness.  I'm no fashion, hair, or makeup expert, but even I can see that she could make some changes that would balance her natural features.

Get rid of the harsh, straw textured hairstyle.  Get some highlights and lowlights in a warm, golden tone.  Replace the scraggly look with soft, gentle curls.  Have a genuine makeup artist show how to enhance those eyebrows so that they look full and natural.  I don't know what type or color of mascara and eyeliner she should use, but I can say with 100% certainty that her current choices do nothing to soften or enhance her appearance.

She's obviously making enough money that she could afford to consult a professional to help her look so much better.  I still think she looks better than Janelle, but that's hardly a compliment, and in my view, she's only ahead of Janelle by about half a point, if that.

So that child size jean vest has a name?  The Harvey?

Ha! I should never read this forum while eating lunch;  I nearly choked on a grape in my tuna salad.  

So I was thinking Carly and Harvey were this couple:

I managed to watch a video of the guy on the right and his wife (I think she's the blonde in the photo) - well, I got through about 20 seconds.  He was holding up random LLN dresses and singing and dancing.  His wife was doing the same.  It was disturbing on so many levels.

This is a horrible picture.  I would never post of picture of me looking that bad.   What's with her teeth?   I know she has a brownish tooth, but  this almost looks like a silver tooth.  Honestly, I think she looks like one of the witches from the movie  "Hocus Pocus."

Meri posted a photo a few months ago where her hair had just been professionally done including color.  It looked really good.  Within a few weeks it was back to her normal straw.  Apparently she's wearing the look that she prefers.  I agree she could look so much better if she wanted.

Do you think Tiandra is also Meri’s eyebrow coach?

And her unnatural-shade-of-spray-on-tan coach?

Meri is in a rut and seems to always go back to the same layered, frizzy straw cut she's had since the 1980s.

Isn't this Harvey vest the one she cut the arms off of because it was too tight?  I don't think this was made to be a vest in the first place.

I suspect so, because google tells me that the "Harvey" is a denim jacket (with sleeves). It is easy to believe that the sleeves of this XXS Harvey would be too tight in the arms.  I just cannot envision Meri with needle & thread or sewing machine finishing off the edges of the armholes.  Perhaps she got the "seamstress" who made her satiny puke-green "commitment" dress to finish them for her.

I googled it too, and Calico Kitty has a good eye and good memory.  Apparently, the Harvey came in waist length and hip length models, but no sleeveless versions were shown on the LLR consultants sites.  It did say that the garment utilized spandex for comfort fit, just not enough for Meri I guess.

But then, Meri has informed us all that she is EDGEY, so maybe she did this sleeveless version to make her own fashion statement.🤷‍♀️

 She actually said that she cuts the sleeves off and leaves enough behind to fray it.

Then her fans started asking for detailed instructions on how she frays the edge 😮

Ummm doesn't it fray itself if you wash it?

Side by side with a photo from barely a fortnight ago. Same style of shirt. Granted good angles and two weeks of dieting can do a little on the weight loss front, but they don’t fully eliminate ‘line-backer shoulders’ or a tubby midsection that quick.

The cut of that T-shirt in the arms & body is unflattering no matter what size or gender the wearer happens to be. I presume it is made of polyester.  I like my T-shirts 100% cotton, V-neck, straight sleeved (not "cap" sleeves nor mini-cuffed like these), and narrower in the waist than the hips (not vice versa).

She really doesn't look that bad, I actually think she looks cute (for her).  Yes, they are just plain tshirts with sayings on them however she looks perfectly fine for a day where you don't need to dress up.  It's not high fashion but it's not terrible.....

Black is slimming. White is not. 

LLR is famous - infamous - for its inconsistent cuts and sizing. 

The angles of the wall behind her make me think she's using a skInny filter.

I am a COL.  I had no idea there was a skinny filter.  

Can someone translate "you do you boo" or is it "you oo you boo."   There is no way I would wear that at all--much less outside of my house-- because I refuse to wear a message I don't understand.  For the most part, I prefer my t-shirts not have writing on them.  I do have a couple of Duke and Virginia ones, but that's about it.  I have a few freebies from the gym that I don't wear except to the gym or at home.

She's looked a lot worse than in those picture,  that's all I've got.

“You do you boo” basically means be yourself or do want you want even though you are going to be judged for it.

According to the urban dictionary:

Boo:
Someone you love. Someone you care about. Someone who is a life time best friend.  
Someone who is always there for you. Someone who is extremely pretty. Someone who is very important in your life. Someone who can make you laugh. Someone who you can never replace.

Yeah. I thought it to be a subversive “mind your own damn business” statement. 

And Meri is wearing a T-shirt that says, “just be nice”? The queen of being snarky to her followers? Really? I guess it means “just be nice” TO HER.

It depends on how it’s said and by whom.  If I’m your friend saying it, It’s basically saying do whatever the hell you want because people will judge you anyway, so because people are going to judge why care, just do what makes you happy.  

If i’m saying in response to someone that is judging me, I’m telling them to mind their own business.  I’ll do what I want and they can do what they want.  

With all that said, I’ll imagine the next time Kootie is pin-curling his hair, Meri will wander by and say “You do you, Boo!”.  Kootie will notice the snark in Meri’s tone and say, “Well, Mer, break out your Wet-n-Wild eyebrow pencil, and you do you, Boo!” At an undisclosed Wendy’s drive-thru, Janelle will look in her rear view mirror and remembered she took a picture of Savannah walking the dog, and tell herself, “You do you, Boo!” as she orders 3 large Baconator sandwiches with extra mayo.

Well not sure something like that is worth wearing if it means 15 different things!  Guess I'm from the "I Like Ike" generation - tell it like it is, stop trying to confuse people.  I have more to do in life than ponder what anyone's t-shirt is telling me.

She probably thinks that by wearing it on her shirt, people won't dare judge her, or if they do, she'll just let her shirt respond for her.  But it won't stop us from judging her. We'll stop when she stops posting selfies on the Internet.

Yesterday I wasted a minute and a half watching Meri's latest IG story - it was of her and her new bestie Tiara or whatever her name is, walking through a zoo.  They walked past an enclosure where alligators and turtles were hanging out together.  The gist of the story was that Meri had convinced Tiara that the alligators were gonna eat all the turtles and Tiara was freaked out about that, but apparently these gators and turtles get along and the turtles don't get eaten but what LOLZ those two had at the zoo that day!  It was sooooo funny!  Maybe you had to be there but my goodness, did those two have a knee-slappin' good time!  Haha!

It was like watching two awkward middle-school aged girls wanting to impress a boy or another clique, laughing uproariously at some inside joke that isn't remotely funny.

And also, I am sorry that I wasted a minute and a half of your time making you all read about Meri's IG story. 😁

The shirts are oversized  with uneven hems, so the knotting hides that fact and makes LLNo wearers feel like they are "edgy" fashionistas.  But it just emphasizes how wide her hips are and the excess fabric makes the stomach area look bigger than it actually is, even with the skinny filter.

This is just my opinion, not some fancy stylist musing so I have no idea if it it Clinton/Stacy approved.  With cuffed jeans, I do not like them with sneakers of any kind UNLESS the cuffed jeans are a little loose.  Even then, I like them better with a flat, small heel, sandals.  She is too hippy and the jeans are too tight.  Her shirts are also shapeless.   Sorry Mer, you look like a parody of a clueless tourist.  All you need are some binoculars strapped around your neck.

I am a COL when it comes to the latest brow trends.  I was an 80's girl and we plucked our brows into oblivion so I consider myself fortunate to have any brows left at all.  But it would seem that, upon applying your brow liner, if you look in the mirror and see two long, dark, caterpillar-type lines that extend almost to your temples?  That maybe you're not doing it right?  Or perhaps this is the trend now, so if it is, get off my lawn and pass the tweezers.
