So - which ass-kicking boots do I buy?

The Fast and the Furious Eating

Let's say you spent an entire day (and the night before) not eating. This is not a nightmare, my friends, or even a bad horror movie - this really happened to me! What would you wear that night, when you are stuffing your face with, let's say, bagels and brownies? Well, I have just the $49 dress for you.

Waiting (Waiting) on the Weather to Change

First I need to explain the title here - - I have been singing that infernal John Mayer song all day. Whenever I wasn't singing 'Single Ladies,' of course. Which jammed itself into my head just when I thought 'Gold Digger' was there to stay and would any day now start receiving those free charity return labels with my brain as address line 1.
OK, on to this dress. Let me be honest here. I know I was hanging on to summer, but now it's almost October and it's still over 80. Hey - some of us have boots to wear! But if fall is going arrive fashionably late, I will be waiting for it in this pretty, pretty silk dress. With a little black cardi. And maybe with this belt.


Today only, a 20% off sale at yoga-inspired Satya Jewelry ! And this applies to the sale jewelry too. Check out this garnet'n'gold necklace for $46, from $88. If I were you, I'd stick to the jewelry, and nama-stay away from the statues.

The Bag Not Taken

If I didn't just buy an awesome bag I didn't need at Verve (a new favorite store!), I would have bought this corduroy baby for$34 with my 25% off coupon. I was nearly persuaded by the Gap salesperson (who is about to retire, after 20 years, with a pension - did you know Gap salespeople got pensions?), but unfortunately for her, the persuasive Verve salesperson got to me first (hi, Lori!). The bag has a very east parking lot/burnout kind of thing going on. I mean, I am sure there is a pocket perfect for cigarettes and another for coal black eyeliner.

Almost Fall

It's getting harder and harder to claim it's still summer. I actually wore boots today. I snatched up a snazzy velvet 'boyfriend' jacket for $29. Yes, soon I will have to acknowledge fall. But, not yet! Today at Sephora I got this awesome Stila 'as good as golden' set, consisting of illuminating finishing powder and sun bronzing powder, for $10. Now, in September, I can have the tan I somehow never achieved after an entire summer in front of my laptop.

And if you buy this set and it doesn't float your boat, just return it to the library that is Sephora. To paraphrase Miss Penny Lane: I always tell the girls, never take it seriously. If you never take it seriously, you never get hurt. If you never get hurt, you always have fun... And if you ever get lonely, just go to Sephora and visit your friends.

Weave Me the Sunshine

Good news! It's rainy and cool again here! Honestly, if I wanted to live somewhere where there's only one season, I would live in Southern California (I will not say SoCal), where there is one warm season and I could bask in the sunshine every day. And also see firsthand whether the women there really look they they do on E!-type TV shows (which I don't watch - especially not "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," "Tori & Dean," or "Kendra"), like a completely different, evolutionarily divergent species.

Until I make that move, and get the requisite injections and surgeries, here is a great water-resilient bag, for $27. Trust me, in person it is not nearly so shiny and the woven front and substantial brass hardware make it look really expensive. Like you could afford to shop at Dash or go to Dr. Reyes when you finally make the big move west. Give my love to Liam and Stella.

They're my new "I don't need a job, I don't need my parents, I've got great boots" boots!

So, last summer my girlfriend called me minutes after interviewing for a job in licensing for Lucky and told me, "You are in trouble. They're making shoes." Not only do they now have shoes, my friends, they have boots. Lucky Brand boots? I didn't even have a chance really, did I? On top of that, today I had a closet organizer come by and he actually told me that, if I was going to keep all my boots, there was literally nothing he could do to help me. Apparently, I have made a lifestyle choice.
