I Will Kill Our Cleaning Ladies for Hiding my Allergy Meds

Every time that I get a paycheck I update my Net-a-Porter wish list because...why not? Here are some favorites that I think everyone should have. Or you know, drool over.
If there was a Party Girl remake Mary would wear this during her days at the library. With Christian Louboutin Rodita platforms, of course. And there would be sly jokes about The City that only freaks like me would get (did you watch The City? It was unrealistic and insane but it made me miss New York like no other, thank God I'm going back in the fall). Fendi silk crepe de Chine dress, $2,020
Mint green and short sounds kind of...insane. But I've always been attracted to the nutcases of this world. If I were on top of my game I'd quote Jack Kerouac right here but I've spent the better part of my day watching reality television and I like the moronic streak that I'm going on today. Besides, tomorrow I'll be legally an adult and I'd rather hold onto my childlike stupidity for as long as I can. Green is an appropriate color to wear when suffering from Peter Pan Syndrome. 3.1 Phillip Lim mini dress, $295
These are adorable and I love them but, I believe in hard living (okay I just always wind up taking photographs of graffiti in various dirty alleys) and they would wind up black after 2 days of being worn. Satin and I love each other very much, but it will never work out. Maloles satin flats, $290

Short, pleated, ruffles, it's fun! It's Marc by Marc Jacobs, what more could I ask for? Marc georgette dress, $360

You Think Too Much

The holidays sure are fun. I love presents and food and good company (and The Peanuts Christmas soundtrack). But halfway through Christmas break I always find myself waking up in the middle of the night as I am reminded of the various embarrassing things I had done from sheer boredom. Seriously, not having something to do makes me go nutty. So here are various things to wash the shame away. Until New Years Eve, at least.
Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap is the best out there. I have very sensitive skin but this stuff does wonders for it. Plus the bottle is excellent shower reading. You know, in case you are like me and take showeres at 3 AM for God knows why (okay, it's just because my hair takes 3 hours to dry and I'd rather not wake up at 6 AM every day) and need something to stay awake. It smells nice too. 32. 0z bottle of peppermint soap, $14.99
Let's say your legs are covered with bruises because you are basically a fool? Instead of hiding your legs in shame, (you are no battered woman, darling) why not show off those legs? Olay Body Quench has shimmery gold things in it that make your legs shine like the golden beacons of hope that they are. So what if you look you joined a Fight Club, you still look fabulous. $9.99
Generally when one of my friend's has a problem I suggest a classic movie. Your boyfriend cheated on you? Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. You're really happy about life but all of your friends are sour pusses? Clueless (okay, not your average person's classic but that movie is timeless. Sort of). And if you are feeling like the "top banana in the shock department"? Breakfast at Tiffany's. You can go around calling every one darling and saying silly things and just say, "Sorry darling, I'm in a Holly Golightly mood." $11.49

Speak to me Darling in Hushed Tones

Christian Louboutin is making pink Barbie shoes. I might be swooning just a little bit. Not that I wear pink much, and I've always been slightly opposed to the blonde/tanned image that Barbie has been sporting for ages. But, aren't you the least bit excited for the Barbie fashion show and to see the shoes that he comes up with? Christian Louboutin did say, afterall, "Barbie needs to wear great shoes because every girl needs to wear great shoes."
Christian Louboutin Very Prive pumps, $860

A Feast of Sorts

Things no one should wear, but I still see everywhere:
Tory Burch flats. Yesterday two girls where wearing them at school. They are best friends. It was a little sick.

Harem pants, I kind of see the appeal but no one needs a dropped crotch and awkward proportions. No one.

In the Pink

The economy sucks, so here are some recession minded pieces for all of us that want to look good during the holidays (okay and so I'm kind of benefiting from the economy because I'm working extra hours for all the promotional stuff my bosses are doing, but 5 more hours at minimum wage all while saving for college does not a billionaire make).
I bought this fro New Year's Eve because a) it's my birthday b) the dress looks fab on me c) black can withstand whatever New Year's Eve debauchery get's...launched it's way d) H&M is not Forever 21 so it will last longer than one week. $49.90 from H&M

I've been wearing tights so much that having all that elastic on my belly is really starting to hurt. So, here come the thigh highs to the rescue. $10 from Nordstrom's
I have about 300 colorful mini skirts that for some reason always get worn with either a black turtleneck or a black American Apparel t-shirt. That's kind of depressing. See by ChloƩ miniskirt, $245

A Favorite

So you guys probably know already that I loved Victoria Beckham's dress collection, but in case you were still on the fence about the collection you should watch this video. Because really, that's what I would do if I were wearing one of those lovely little dresses.
