I'm all about people taking risks and creating new and exciting stuff. However, some things just don't work.
When I saw these sandals on Nitrolicious, I couldn't get over how wack they are. The whole selling feature is 'style that isn't compromised by comfort'.
I'm wearing a pair of flat gladiators right now, and I can tell you that they don't need Nike technology to be comfortable.

Love her or hate her, I personally think Lady GaGa's pretty fierce and fabulous. She's got a big voice, super toned body and has a very unique approach in her appearance. I'm all for originality but really GaGa, when you forget to put on your top and pants on a daily basis... I dunno... it's just a little too much... (Or too little. Har har.) Great bag though...

Brian Bailey spotted @ 12:15 outside of my office having a smoke.
Didn't have the guts to ask if I could take a picture.
Observation: way taller and quite thin in person. Dressed in a black dress shirt, black skinny jeans and black boots.

Quick recap on my previous Gilt Groupe post:
- I was notified that I could return the complimentary shoes they had sent me when the wrong size was shipped.
- More credit was added towards a future purchase.

Boyfriend Blazer: Wilfred. Black tank: Target (not shown). Red and pink houndstooth skirt: Joe Fresh. Black leather belt: Gap (not shown). Leather sandals: Nine West. Red leather satchel: Marc by Marc Jacobs.
This afternoon, a coworker and I were chatting about her $1,500 Louis Vuitton bag. I told her how I toyed with the idea of buying the Stephen Sprouse version of her bag for a hair-line-fracture-of-a-second, but ultimately felt that at this stage of my life, I wouldn't be comfortable sporting a Louis V bag. I'd be petrified that people would take one look at me and think "Fake bag much?". (The reality is I can't fathom spending a months mortgage payment on a purse.) My 40-something year old coworker responded with "You could pull it off! You dress well, everything you wear is expensive!" (Thanks Marcia.)
While I have my fair share of (mainly discounted) designer pieces, I always mix designer with thrifty finds. My generation is a lot more creative with mixing price brackets and pulling off amazing looks. We do with what we have and we're darn good at it. After all, I had Marcia fooled with my $14 skirt.

1. I was actually wearing a bra that was TWO CUP SIZES TOO SMALL. No wonder I had the dreaded 'four boob' syndrome.
2. Initially, I was a little wary of spending over $150 on a bra, but it's well worth it. The stuff I was buying for $40-50 was always poorly made and ill fit. Also, I have larger breasts, so everything in my size range was just hideous. The stuff at specialty shops usually comes from Europe, and is much nicer.
3. Like some women, I was a touch apprehensive about the idea of someone seeing me in just a bra. Turns out it's no big deal. They're trained professionals after all, not perverts.
No pictures, because that'd be weird.
So yes, ladies, don't skimp on the undergarments. Your boobies will thank you.
