I will save my theory about there being two types of women - Vera Bradley girls and LeSportsac girls - for another time.
In the meantime - today, on two separate occasions, I saw guys carrying Vera Bradley bags for the girls with whom they were walking (giving them the benefit of the doubt here re: the true owner). Boys, take note. This is not chivalrous. This is emasculating (and in the second case, did not say much for the arm strength of the accompanying girl - unless it was filled with gold bars, that was just weak effort on her part - was it that necessary to make the boy feel like a big strong hero?).
(This nice woman is putting those other girls to shame.)
I just informed my insurance people that I will no longer be traveling to and from work by car every day, and for that they’ve reduced my premium 46 whole dollars. How does that make sense? Have they ever seen the crazy people on the roads out there? Not encountering them everyday only equals a savings of less than $4 a month? This confusion = why I’m not an underwriter.
(ignoring the inherent wrongness of me shopping in the first place)
Ben Sherman Shirt Dress (slightly country-y - will look super cute in Memphis)
original Ben Sherman tag says: $99
original Filene’s markdown was: $29.99
I paid: $2.50
no, seriously - marked down again to $9.97, then 75% off markdowns
(also, some appreciation please for my restraint in not buying the DVF or Kate Moss for Top Shop dresses or other absurd eccentric super expensive designer stuff…)
