The Scene
Still miserably congested but didn't want to miss another day of work. So all day I was that hacking, sneezing, red nosed problem that shouldn't be in the office. F.

Before going to sleep, I caught that Britney MTV documentary. Wow. I remain utterly fascinated with what her rise and fall and comeback mean about society. By how the famous hunger for anonymity and the anonymous for fame. By Hollywood's corporate armies of men who turn simple creative girls into billion dollar industries. How they build them up and bleed them dry and then move on. It's all so layered and tragic and Oedipal and, well, entertaining.

It also points to how vitally important good parenting is, how horribly complicated it is to balance what you want with what your kids need. No gracias, I say. No mini Diabolinas any time soon. My mom can blame Britney :)

The Outfit
J Brand jeans
Juicy Couture tee shirt
Forever 21 sweater
Burberry trench coat

The Accessories
BCBG boots
Stella McCartney bag
Fashion District pashmina

The Grade

The Commentary
So this man at work remarked about how bundled up I was today. Like four times. What was that about??? All I did was wear a scarf. Ugh.

Seriously, office people are so weird that I think I'm about to lose my marbles. I'd take Britney crazy over Dwight Schrute crazy any day ;)

The outfit was pretty blah today. Couldn't deal with anything other than flats and jeans. I did quite like doing the long sleeved tee with this short sleeved sweater coat thingy.

It's seriously one of my favorite F21 purchases of all time. So versatile and cozy and luxe looking. All for less than $30.
Don't think any part of Katie's look cost less than $300 - other than that Venti Starbucks.

Here are some kute knits I am digging - can you guess which ones are $$$ and which ones are Forever?

That's bundled up? That man be crazy.

Sable Crow said...

I like all of the ones on the left, which means--inevitably--that they are NOT the less expensive choices. F to me.

I therefore think the ones on the right are the F21s.

Am I right? Am I right?

UGH! The nerd in me LOVES a quiz!

amy said...

i'll play, too... the upper left hand and lower right hand are f21.

right on about the parenting. can't imagine what i would do if my (future) daughter(s) ended up on rock of love or smeared across the tabloids...

i'd take dwight schrute-crazy over britney-crazy!! one of my clients is a dwight-in-training, but with a good heart and i swear i try my hardest to be the pam to his dwight. britney makes me sad to be a woman. despite her "comeback" she's such a mess and a poor role model.

Poor Britney. Her parents did her wrong.

all expensive on left, all Forever on right. You win, Sable Crow. You get the pleasure of my company tonight :)

Sable Crow said...

I was right! God, I'm like a homing pigeon to luxe.

Which explains my choice of friends, too...

Still glowing from last night.
