Shoppers Beware (and Happy 4th!)

Beware: if a model looks this bad in the clothes, you know they aren't worth it- especially not the original $68.00.

And of these shoes.

This message brought to you by blogger, Bard, and the letter F (for fugly, natch).

On to brighter topics! I will be leaving you all until the end of the week, flying (and bussing... and ferrying) to Martha's Vineyard for the holidays (but keep an eye on the site for the publication of my Carnivale replies). I hope everyone who celebrates will have a lovely Independence Day. I know that no matter what kind of day I have, it will be spectacular largely in thanks to finally purchasing my very first little white dress. On sale at Macy's from $158.00 to $39.00. May it be the first of many, and may it be an omen of more perfect (affordable) dresses to come.

I also changed my stripes (again!) (look ma, how flexible I am!), and bought a teal bikini. Teal! And a lovely patterned Ralph Lauren sarong to go over it. Usually I stay with solid neutrals in my bathing suits, and usually I buy 'em cheap. So this was a biiig change, and I love it to death.

Be on your best buying behavior while I'm away, don't do anything I wouldn't do (or else you simply must email and tell me all about it), and see ya soon!

OK. I disagreed with you on the dress below, but you've got me with the shoes. Heeedeous. They'd look great with a rhinestoned sweatshirt and stirrup pants, though.
