Business Shorts

Ok ladies, let's band together and stop the shorts-wearing madness shall we? Twice this week I've witnessed women with handbags that hang down farther on the leg than the length of the shorts. Also a tip for those of you who can't stop buying and wearing shorts: if you have to reach in between your legs to yank them down periodically, yeah, they don't fit you properly. And lastly, don't wear shorts to the office.

Nordstrom Rack Attack: "Worn and Refinished"

My lovelies. I may be way older than I was when I first launched this blog, and I may have veered way off the retail shopping deals track upon which this masterpiece was originally launched. But, that does not at all mean that when I experience an injustice, triumph or just plain old cool thing in the world of shopping I won't share it with you. In fact, I'm probably even more motivated to do so now than ever.

And so it is that I warn you of the "worn and refinished" status of some of what seem like the hottest deals in shoes at Nordstrom Rack. Months ago, I was shocked and thrilled to find a pair of trendy black ankle boots at the NR in Union Square, Manhattan, that were priced so low it would have been stupid for me not to buy them--$35!! Granted, I spied the note on the price tag that these boots had been worn before...after I bought them, but they still had the tags so I could very well have returned them, of course I didn't...Well after just a couple of jaunts out in the boots, the zipper on one of them straight up broke. Ok, no big deal, I thought, I should have expected that.

So now I find myself once again in a predicament. I bought a hot hot pair of DVF flats at the NR in Danvers, MA. Only after (fool! Rookie mistake made again, no less) I bought them did I realize that they are worn and refinished, too.

Will I learn my lesson and simply return these beauties? Should I? I am on the fence. But I can rest assured that at least I informed my public. May you learn from me.

Hot Hair

Look at this amazing braid situation! JL is rocking it, big time. Once again, the colleagues FTW.

Could these two be any cooler? The answer, my friends, is a resounding 'no!' for they are the pinnacle, nay, epicenter of coolness.

When do I get to wear glasses, too?
