I feel as if this is the mullet of blazers; business in the front, party in the back. Costume party. But, hey! I liked wearing it. I’m a blazer fanatic anyway, so this addition was perfect. It’s also forty percent off right now, and I’m jealous about that. So, go check it out!
Here’s great news, my designer jeans are on sale for 40% off. I’m a pretty big fan of these since they have great stretch and are super comfortable. The wash is also flattering. That’s a strange thing to say but it’s true. They have all the right spots on your legs highlighted. It’s like contouring for jeans. Do you have anything by Splendid yet? the softest cotton tops that you can wash over and over and never see any wear on. You are going to hurt a little with the price tag, but I’ve been purchasing Splendid for five years now and my oldest tops still look brand new. Anyway, these photos were taken in Rome on vacation. I refused to use the elevator while I was there and only did the stairs. I would also do extra trips up and down the stairs for exercise (we were on the fifth floor). Guess what? I still put on a bajillion pounds and though my butt is hard like a rock, it is large like a boulder. Fail. Lucky I have stretchy jeans!
So, here’s a story…
I went to a very, very strict private college. We had a girl’s basketball team, a girl’s volleyball team, and A girl’s soccer team. We had cheerleaders. They wore culottes. You can imagine my mortification when I pulled what I thought was a skirt off the rack and they turned out to be culottes. I was frightened. More so when I carried them to the dressing room and tried them on. I questioned my sanity when I walked them to the register and bought them. Culottes. Like they wore at my strange college, the same college that made us wear panty-hose, and group date. Anyway, here I am…in culottes.
You know, I’m not going to lie and pretend I’m not a clothing snob. Back in the day (or three years ago) Target was too expensive for me. Target clothes were a luxury. And while I still sometimes shop for clothes at Target, I’ve become disenchanted with their jeans (they stretch out), and I have serious issues with their undies (they fade and stretch out). But, there is one thing Target does very right, and that is their cotton tee’s. They wash well, they’re versatile, they’re half the price of every other retail store. So, when I spotted this very soft, very cool high/low tee I snatched it up. Well worth it, especially for the $19.00 price tag. High/Low is the “in thing” right now, and why not purchase where it’s both a good quality, and a good price. Also, have you invested in a pair of Converse wedges? So comfortable. I wear mine a couple times a week.
