Built like a refrigerator

Since seeing The Powder and the Glory, I can't help comparing myself to how Helena Rubinstein's phsyique was once described--built like a refrigerator. Amber tried to deny it when I was comparing myself to her refrigerator, but I definitely see the resemblance. Which is why I will not be buying this dress from ShopBop.
If it makes a model look that square, I fear what it'd do on my body.

Elizabeth and James Loralei dress on sale at ShopBop $241.50 (via ShopItToMe)

The question of recession chic, or I'm going to Walmart tomorrow.

I think as a treat to myself IF I drop off my laundry--reason for an absurd lack of outfit posts (wearing whatever I can find that's clean)--I may have to go to Walmart tomorrow. Yes. Walmart.

I'm kind of obsessed with Norma Kamali. I was thinking about getting a couple more T-shirts, as that's all I wear anymore (with slim black trousers and boots) when I read a great article about Kamali in the NY Times. And, this T-shirt is $8.

Shopaholic Masochist

If you buy a pair of shoes that make your feet bleed--why not by them in another color?

Once these are broken in, awesomeness will ensue.

Gilt Sale--Loads of M by MJ!

Remember Johanna wearing this dress on Stylista? It can now be yours for $168 at Gilt. They also have loads of other Marc by Marc Jacobs--definitely worth a look. 

I'm drawn to the Delman shoe sale, however. Wimbley on sale for $108. Mona on sale for $82 in 6 colors!

O-Twins at Met Gala via Olsens Anonymous

They. are. stunning.

I get a secret joy from Olsen's Anonymous, but I had to share this. Ashley is my favorite.


It's kind of funny that I claim everything is in style, and yet, lately I've been paralyzed with insecurity about what I wear. Ok, not really that extreme, but there are something about these boots that I love, but I can't figure out how to wear them. Tweeted with Camille about it, but there's definitely a lack of confidence on my end despite her reassurance and good ideas. Maybe that explains the lack of posts lately.

Died and gone to heaven.

A. Wang for the Gap. Done and done. Check out pics on Racked.
