Was going to have dinner with old co-worker besties but we rescheduled. Maybe next week. Miss them.
Watched Project Runway AGHAST tonight. Whole grip of ugly that the judges loved. B-l-e-c-h. And Sandra Bernhard - ugh. Talk about fug and not very funny circa 1990.
Agree 110 percent with Tam Thoughts on this episode. Also agree with Chic Intuition (GREAT BLOG, BTW) that Mrs. Seal's taste level is not always up to snuff in her real life. Very Euro mercurial clowny at times. Who is she to say a "auf wedersen" to anyone. F.

Today was a momentous day. The grand debut of my J Brand skinnies. Technically they are the Bardot cut in Indigo. A little high waisted with a pencil leg. They were a birthday present from my mom. $37 at Crossroads. Savings: $150. Loves it!
I've been hearing about J Brand jeans for what seems like years and years. How could I not? ALL the skinny minny celebrity hotties swear by them.
But at nearly $200 a pair, I wasn't convinced they were worth it. My little $30 pair of Mossimos would see me through the skinny trend, I figured.
But last fall, Styleminded wore J Brands for a fun night of teddy bears and dancing and they definitely turned my head. Mr. Diabolina was also besotted. Mesmerized. In heaven. Apparently even had to rub jean butts!!! That is a powerful jean ;)
Now clearly I am not the same size as my baby Styleminded so I knew I wouldn't look as fab as her in the jeans. What fascinated me was that up close her jeans looked like leggings. The material moved with her. They were skin tight but looked comfortable. Who'd have thunk it?
Filed this information away in my fashion computer of a brain for future reference and proceeded to have one of the best nights ever.
Fast forward six months and I started hearing that J Brand was coming out with a line of jeans for curvy women, dubbed their Blue Label. Nice. I like when hot celebrity brands recognize they are missing out on a whole segment of the population. The real woman. Was poised to get a pair for my birthday when this pair found me.
Loved how it worked with the Stella shoes and this exquisite Forever 21 top. The pearl detailing once got kudos by numerous sales people at the Chanel store on Rodeo. And they know pearls.
Felt chic and no fuss today. In a meeting, a girl I have never talked to told me she's noticed I dress very well. Always look cute. She wears a Balenciaga bag some days so I think she could be a definite maybe work friend ;)
p.s. Have you noticed celebrity fashionistas are starting to roll up their jeans? I have and I fear the trend is coming for me.
Apparently the 80s are back and no one told me. God help us, everyone.
Katie Holmes is particularly pegging crazy lately.
Crazy being the operative word.
This outfit must be a mistake, right? Like she threw on a bunch of things that were at her disposal. None of which should ever never ever be worn together.
This outfit works a bit better with the baggy, rolled up jeans. With the sandals and the sleeveless tank, I can kinda get where she's going with it. But I'm not sure I'm ready to rock this new look just yet.
I'm still getting my head (and real woman body) wrapped around the J Brands she was wearing a year ago.
p.s. More great jeans jeans jeans at Couture Carrie. Go. now!
