So now for the contents of that Chanel goodie bag. Drum roll....
We got a Chanel lipstick in a color named Attitude and a silver quilted lipstick case with mirror inside and interlocking C's outside...
Ungrateful beotch? Yup.
Sigh. I really wanted the nail polishes. Never expected jewelry. Though it would have made me weep with joy.
G did find out that the silver cases are exclusive to the Robertson store and cost around $200. Yes, 200 hundy for a lipstick case!!! That no one REALLY needs. Luxury brands will stop at nothing to make women part with their money. Rascals.
p.s. In addition to being adorable and a big deal fashion editrix, G just got into two top 10 business schools. So proud of her I could burst!!!!
I went, I saw, I conquered Chanel last night. How is one supposed to go into a boring ole office after achieving such fashionable fabulousness? Sigh.
Hectic day followed by a relaxing work dinner for Mr. Diabolina's firm. The summer associates have arrived so we're going to be doing lots of funny events in the coming weeks. Being the social butterfly that I am, I typically love it. We'll see about this year...
Pop in to visit The Peeper since we're in her hood and she's by her lonesome with her hubby out of town. Catch her watching the end of The National Spelling Bee. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. The kids, the parents, the judges. All of it's like a bizarre SNL sketch. Here's an excerpt with the baby who won.
We giggle and take pics to make her hubby jealous and catch up and cuddle. Ends up being waaay harder to see her than I had imagined. Realized just how much I miss seeing her. Every day. Wah. Change is tough...
Forever 21 bubble dress
Fuchsia wrap sweater
Fashion District beaded necklace
Louis Vuitton earrings
Manolo Blahnik shoes
Wanted to keep the fabulous train going today. Thought about repeating this look that I loved from March. But instead decided to keep the dress as the foundation of the look and switch out the accessories.
Decided the sweater went well with the dress. Adoring this turquoise /fuchsia combo. So summery but somehow elegant.
Then added the Louis Vuitton earrings. Just look at how each earring matches the outfit so perfectly. Makes me giddy and gleeful.
And then came this beaded necklace. Remember how lovely it looked when I combined it with a blue dress and the sweater before? Interesting how different today's blue dress makes the look, no? It's the dressier material and the print.
Debated whether to wear the MJ clutch or the YSL. Decided to anchor the shoes and the bag in the brown of the dress' print. Made the look more polished, sophisticated.
And the Manolos were a bit of an ode to SATC, opening today. (Jean Bean saw it and says it's good. She laughed, she cried. Hearing the same things from my pretties Tam and MissJordyPants. So.so.so.excited!)
At dinner, Mr. Diabolina randomly whispered to me, "Congratulations on being the hottest chick here." EEEEEE!!! Must admit that after 10 years his continued lasciviousness makes my heart pitter patter. Love that we're still in love. Love that we like showing each other off. Love love love.
I told you once that I dress for other women first and Mr. Diabolina second. I think that dynamic reverses though when it's one of his work events. I do love playing the sassy accessory/appendage role.
After seven years, his coworkers know I am smart, accomplished, funny, independent. So I can feel free to dress as fancifully and fabulously as I want. I don't have to worry about toning it down or being conservative (read:dowdy.) I can be my sassiest self.
Plus it's always fun to be the breath of fresh (fashion) air among a group of buttoned up suits...
happy happy weekend!
