Oh just stop it

New favorite site: So hilar!

I hate Walmart

I only go there under extreme duress or for extreme convenience. Attempted it today and I was not disappointed with my disappointment. A pile of endcap located products clearly marked with one price did not ring up as such and it took a decade to determine the correct item and then they only brought me one, thought I obviously had two I wanted to purchase. AND the canned tomatoes were in the ethnic food aisle not vegetable or fruit. WTF

Anthopologie shirt and Charlotte Russe shoes that are going in the trash when I get home, those stupid things just refuse to stay on my feet, they make them look kind of duckish anyway

high and low

Fell in Love Love Love with this Sunray necklace from J Crew. It was originally $150 and I have been waiting for it to go on sale. OK, Now it $75 and I still can't do it. Luckily, I came across this totally stolen design idea in an Alloy catalog. For $19 I can get the same great look. Sorta. Now, for sure there is a quality difference, I mean, I give this necklace one minute on the dance floor before becoming a slip and fall lawsuit, but for my intent and purpose, totally works

Settle down Beavis

Taking a break from mucking the barn at the Giant Polo Logo Open. I have just been so unfashion-ey lately and I thank all of you for noticing my absence (I think). I am sure it is only temporary and I'll be right back on the superficial brand appearance obsessed wagon soon. The warm weather inspired me to started bustin' out the change of seasons, always an uplifting experience as well as a puzzling one along the lines of "where did that come from??"

It didn't last

DISREGARDING the fact that this sweater is by April Cornell that Shabby Chic/Mary Francis/Laura Ashley mess of a store and it is made of that horrible fake chenille that, though cunningly soft, makes you sweat alot, I have to say I was completely alzheimered by the cutie mink buttons and wore this on my person today. Though delightfully tactiluliar, mink, in coat or button form, does not a skinny make

Go with D

False eyelashes are a given for a night at Talbott Street. So is: me a) getting in the DJ booth despite security b) falling off the stage at least once c) ruining my outfit or d) all of the above

Jeans or just denim leggings

They can't be too rich or thin but they can be too tight. Srsly, when you must unsnap them to digest your lunch, and your butt disappears, i think you have crossed that threshold.

R U coming to America?

I know this is totally old, try September of last year, but must share the Vicktor and Rolf doll show which is a re-creation of their greatest hits, alarmingly enough the curtain rod one is considered this, completely on a 1:10 scale. I have expressed on this forum my overwhelming fascination with V&R, esp. the pillow dress and i am equally mesmerized by the fact they each outfit was created as a couture piece from the teeny hand made lace to the giant stuffed "no" on fall 2007's coat. I am remembering a personal abysmal failure to make a scale garment inspired by a suit from Victoria's Secret catalog, of all places, hey, it was the 90's, in a fashion design class at BGSU and have to give them total props considering they have already done this outfit once and repeats are so boring

Minimalist schminialist

Was really saddened to learn that Domino Magazine was being discontinued esp. since I still have not gotten over Budget Living's demise. Dom was always one of my favorite shelter magazines because of their high/low approach and just general enthusiasm. If they think they can mollify me by replacing my subscription with Cookie, a family friendly periodical that pushes tres cher baby clothing and Tahitian vacations and broccoli rabe, they are sadly mistaken

Having an 80's moment

But arent we all? Everywhere I go I see my eighth grade wardrobe. To truly complete this flashback, I would be wearing pointed Sam and Libby ballet flats and serious hair wings

Preppy Star Trek

Found this great 80's sweater while thrifting last week. Despite the faire isle pattern and giant neck, it looks slightly space age with the big shoulders and tunic waist especially paired with liquid leggings

Could I make this? NOOOOOOO

Photo shoppish skills so bad, i wish i could make this bigger so you could see how fab this dress by All Saints is. reminds of LAMB before Gwen had her baby and lost her mind and all of her design skills. Retro yet modern with a sexy unusual twist. It is 110 EUROS, does that mean it is over $200 American? Damn


American Rag sweater dress, Seven jeans, usual shoes. I have been so boring lately

I so want to drive this Nacho Daddy truck

When Hum-Vs first came into the general public consciousness they were a military thing and completely bad ass. During one of our family vacays in 1985 there was a convoy at a rest stop and I was in one of those things faster then you could say court martial. They wouldn't let me drive that thing either
