"I have that bracelet, I have that bracelet! It's Amrita Singh!"
Me screaming at the end of Bride Wars.
I love Amrita Singh's jewelry, and at $18, the Sarasa Bracelets would be my pick. Also featured are some beautiful earrings, but they are more expensive.

Guess I just keep looking at all the great sales ShopItToMe has sent me, because hopefully, I'll find something soon.

Amber sent me a link to a story on a WSJ.com Law Blog post regarding a price-fixing settlement.
The offer is part of an agreement to settle a suit filed in 2003 in a California federal court that alleged the stores tried to limit sales and scale back on the amount of cosmetics in their inventory, keeping both prices and competition high. The department stores — which also include Bergdorf Goodman, Bergner’s, Bloomingdale’s, Boston Store, Carson Pirie Scott, Dillard’s, Gottschalks, Herberger’s, Neiman Marcus, Parisian, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Younkers — have denied any wrongdoing.

ELuxury.com to Shutter Retail Operation
by Julee Kaplan
Posted Friday January 09, 2009
From WWD Issue 01/09/2009ELuxury.com, the designer e-commerce site launched in June 2000 by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, will close the retail portion of the site over the next six months.
I mean, holy hell! I also learned about the TFP Manifesto. I like seeing someone more bothered by this than me.

I'm really glad to see this article. I've been taking special care of my clothes now that I'm putting more money into them, and I think it's important to repair things and to have them tailored to fit if possible. (Usually this just means getting pants hemmed for me, but I got this amazing Marc by Marc pencil skirt on sale, and it was just a little big. I got it tailored so it sits right around my natural waist and is perfect!)

This is what I almost wore on Thursday. I decided that I didn't like the t-shirt with the jacket, and that I didn't want a short jacket with the jeans, so I changed everything.
(Outfit details: blazer, Walter; jeans, Marc by Marc Jacobs; t-shirts, J. Crew and Gap.)
So I changed into a long gray t-shirt and longer black blazer. I haven't worn the Walter jacket yet, but I think I'm going to have to do it with a high-waisted pencil skirt or something, because the cropped isn't nice with jeans.
(Outfit details: blazer, The Limited; t-shirt, Gap; shoes, Colin Stuart for Victoria's Secret--yes, I got them!)
Sorry for the lousy image quality. Wilson even took the last one! I'm definitely working on it. I also have to start exercising like our own demoiselle, Stephanie. Both outfits would have looked a lot better if I paunch was a bit smaller/flatter. I try not to beat myself up about it though, because I'm definitely an advocate of hot fashion at any size.

My outfits recently have been deemed "sophisticated" and "more stylish" and "professional" and even "sexy." I think it's funny considering, all I'm doing is putting more effort into my appearance. I wear too much black, gray, red, and purple. And I'm wearing the same three pairs of amazingly comfortable heels. Metal chain bracelets adorn my wrists. People at work are going to start calling me "metal."Sorry, no photos. I don't have a cute boyfriend to take snapshots.
Tonight, I bought things I'd normally never buy. Wet look leggings and a jumpsuit. Uh oh. But whatever, I feel like a rock star whenever I wear them and I've already constructed many outfits. I'm going to look so good walking down the streets of San Francisco. Maybe then, I'll catch the eye of a cute boy who will want to date me and take my outfit snapshots.
This weekend, I'll be in New York. More fashion updates, later!

I was having some kind of issue yesterday, may have been from a late night of Excite Truck...
This morning I'm feeling a bit more jovial though.
(Top picture: cardigan and tube top (yes, I said tube top), Target; jeans, Calvin Klein; shoes, Nine West. Bottom Picture: sweater, Bluefly (Acrobat or something, eh, it was cheap); undershirt, Gap; pants, Joie; sneakers, Converse.)
Baggy and comfy--we'll see what tomorrow brings.

If you're interested in a select few Marc by Marc pieces (primarily the logo print cotton items, but selection may depend on location) on Net-A-Porter, you may want to check one of the Marc by Marc boutiques first where they had dresses and shorts for $25. The last time I was there (Newbury St location) they had a pretty big selection left.

Hudson Laceup $188
KAOS 2.0 MIA $278
WOVEN NAMESAKE FLAT TOTE $188
I found this skirt when I limited by my size (10) and color (black) because let's face it, if I did have money to buy something, it'd be black or gray. After searching, you can then sort your results from price low to high. Superb.
Abaeté Cromwell Matelessé Skirt $62.95 on Saks.com.
For real. Click the image or post title to go to the website. Sort by priced low to high, and be amazed. There's an Elizabeth and James tank that I really want, but when I try to select size, nothing drops down. I'm tempted to call, but I might just dig through racks at the local store tonight.
Elizabeth and James Tank, $19 on saks.com.

I like the subtle differences between these and similar styles, most notably the woven leather--makes it looks a little more rich or something.
Do you buy multiples of similar styles of shoes that you like or do you like to have loads of different styles, colors, materials?
I picked up Marie Claire for the airplane, but of course I was grumpy then slept instead of reading or doing anything even as pseudo-productive as reading a magazine.
Flipping through it today, I was super-impressed with a fashion feature photographed by Kelly Klein, fashion editor Zanna Roberts. I can't find much on Roberts besides the fact that she was promoted at Marie Claire to a senior fashion editor (from fashion editor) from WWD via Media Bistro.
The feature is called Perfect 10, "Put a 2009 spin on your top 10 timeless pieces with a pair of hotttie black heels and rocker jewelry. (Think chains, chains, chians...)" reads the subhead. I can't help thinking it's flawless. Cheers to you Zanna Roberts and Marie Claire.
