Thank you for your funny and kind comments over my Friday post - they made my day! Us virtual girlfriends should have no problem with a good bring-your-own-whine party (thanks, Julie, for giving this a name) - we gotta get our misery out every once in a while!
I'll be a bit MIA for a few days since I'm on a biz trip, so here's an outfit from last week - I'm tutti frutti'd out:
I'm pretty assured that I'll be sick when I get back because 1) four hours of recycled air in a big metal tube, 2) I saw Contagion and I am still a little freaked out, 3) it's supposed to be sunny and 70s in the left coast where I am this week but the Weather Channel people lied and I am here sans jackets or sweaters whilst it is cold, windy and wet, and 4) my schedule doesn't really give me much free time to go hunt myself down something cozy.
OK, while 4 is true, it does not mention the fact that I am by nature a cheap prideful person and refuse to admit to myself that I got so thrawted by the Weather Channel. So instead of doing something like go buy a jacket so I can survive the rest of my stay, I bundle myself in about as many layers as I've got and hug myself close whenever I leave the hotel. I refuse to spend my hard-earned dollars on you, Weather Channel, and will not concede to this unplanned purchase.
A jacket to keep me warm I refuse to buy because it was unplanned and - gasp - sensible. And yet ... pink suede chunky platforms? Oh yes, please! Neon bangles? Necessary! Poofy pleather skirt appropriate for no real good occasion? Of course!
So I guess this means I am lacking in sartorial common sense? I'm too easily distracted by trendy sparkling things? I won't bat an eye at buying a sequinned sweater but consider it a "waste" to spend money on a basic white tee. Or rather, I hate the idea of having to spend money on things. Life things. Car insurance. Healthcare. A rug for the living room. A coat when I am cold and don't have twenty million hours to peruse coats on the Internet and look for the best deal and perfect fit.
(I'll be back to my regular posting and reading later this week ladies - have a fantastic Monday)!
