Why Did You Wear That: Swag Bag

By |September 9th, 2014|Why Did You Wear That?|

I’m not awesome at packing a suitcase, but when it comes to having a well appointed handbag, (remember this tutorial?) it’s very evident that I will make for a great mommy some day.  For Fashion Week, we must up the ante when it comes to being overly prepared.  To be honest (and why wouldn’t I be?), this could be my every day bag.  The only difference is during a week such as this, the chance of being able to swoop back home to pick up a forgotten item is a far cry from plausible.  Sure, the island of New York is only about 22 square miles, but getting around is a lot more taxing than hopping in a taxi… and let’s be serious- during an average week, I hardly venture outside a ten block radius.  When you leave your broom closet size apartment in the morning, it’s necessary to plan ahead and that includes everything from spare batteries to snacks to a change of shoes.  Pro tip: when choosing a bag, take into consideration its weight before you’ve stuffed it to the gills with survival supplies.  There’s a reason my yoga teacher is constantly correcting the tension I hold in my shoulders (specifically the right one).  Have I suggested yet that yoga be a requirement for all Manhattanites?  Consider this my formal bid then.  Whether you, too, are taking on the tents for the remainder of this week or perhaps you’re a working woman on the go, be sure that you’re always armed for battle with these hand bag must haves.

The List Volume LXXIV

By |May 18th, 2012|The List|

life is hardIn all seriousness, it probably would have been easier to just write the list in its original form (all bad, all the time).  But I’ve made an effort to take a look on the bright side, so I managed to scrounge up equal parts happy as well as heinous.

  1. Men in sweatpants in public.  I don’t want to get too graphic here, but uh… it’s like the equivalent of a girl with no bra.  Catch what I’m saying?man in sweat pants
  2. Receiving emails like this.  When will men learn that this has the opposite of intended effect?name drop email
  3. “Fashion” segments on the Today show and the likes.  No wonder most of America look like assholes.
  4. Everyone who thinks he/she is going to get rich like a Zuckerberg by buying Facebook stock.  Please stop.
  5. Herve dress with Louis Vuitton bag and Louboutin heels.  Don’t be so obvious.  (J. Love Hewitt… ahem).
