Money Train II - Hollywood to San Quentin

Sooooo we'll be using our tax dollars to penalize Wesley Snipes, and putting him in prison. For evading his taxes.


I have two issues with this:

1) Wesley - they're called accountants
2) Legal system - are you kidding me? Prison sentence?

Not Buying New Shoes

You know what you can do, instead of buying new shoes? You can take these shoes, that are already sitting, patiently, in your closet (open-toe season is almost here):



And try them on.

And then look at them for a bit, thinking "Hmmm. These would be more flattering without that pesky ankle strap. Stacy London is always saying ankle straps cut you off and break up the line of the leg."

And after looking at the shoe, closely, you decide that you can just cut that ankle strap right off.

NEW SHOES!

And, if you are in an ankle-strap kind of mood, you can still put those on. They just won't be attached to the actual shoe.

I'm like a magician.

The Biggest Loser - It's A Girl!


111 pounds of congratulations to Ali Vincent!!!! Girl, you are a superstar! (Ali with her awesome mom, BetteSue, below)


People - if you are still not "Biggest Loser" fans, I don't know what to do with you. This show is the most inspiring thing on TV.

Yes, even more inspiring than "Hannah Montana".

Dress Obsessed

Okay, I've been JUST BROWSING fashion sites, and I found that Alexander McQueen dress:




And it is listed at $1730. It's cotton twill.

Cotton twill. Not titanium, or diamonds. Just plain old cotton twill.

Mommy is right. I will stick to JUST BROWSING.

Even though at Nordstrom Rack, it was only $450.

JUST BROWSING THANKS.


Another Reason To Love Alexander McQueen

On the day I purchased my Celebration Shoes, I also tried on some delicious high-end dresses.

Just because.


I found a gorgeous Alexander McQueen halter dress, in a soft butter yellow color. Totally flattering, totally awesome (totally still around $450, even at The Rack - totally did not buy it),but LOVE the McQueen.

The Los Angeles Times has given me one more reason to love McQueen:

It’s not often that a major European designer poised to open a West Coast flagship shudders at the mention of Paris Hilton... "If she comes past the shop, hopefully she’ll just keep walking,” McQueen said of the paparazzi princess. “I don’t really covet that sort of thing."


I am REALLY tempted to go back and buy that dress. You know, just to show solidarity and stuff.

Holiday Golightly Launches!



Hurrah! It's official, Holiday Golightly is now open for bidniz.

"What bidniz?" You ask.

Girlfriend travel bidniz!

Holiday Golightly is the reason I've been fairly absent lately. We've been working like ants over there. Or something more chic than ants, that also works hard...


Anyway, to celebrate the Official Launch, I really just wanted to had to buy myself some Celebration Shoes.


Pierre Hardy says CELEBRATE!

(thankfully Pierre Hardy did not say "Celebrate at full price of $660". He said "how about 80% off?" I said OK.)

Anyway - if you're reading this, and you know girls who like to travel, please pass it on! PSSST! Pass it on!

HOLIDAY GOLIGHTLY - WOO HOO!

You know what's fun?

Never having heard of 575 Denim, and finding a pair at TJMaxx, on clearance, for $20, then Googling them and discovering that they retail for $220.

That is fun.
