It's on sale, and been on sale forever, since honestly who else is going to buy this thing? I totally love it, but I think it would be kinda hard to actually wear?

These also I've been eyeing since winter, and they're also on sale, since honestly who's gonna buy some shearling boat shoes that'll get ruined right quick?

And I only said yes to #1 because of how much I love wacky commemorative scarves and because I'm assuming it's 100% silk.

1) if you like it and will wear it, why not?
2) no
3) are those prada? I don't get why that line is so popular tbh
4) maybe. I kind of like those!

daria, Thursday, 31 March 2011 19:48 (seven years ago) Permalink

1. Well OK, I'll wait to go one one more further discount and get it... If I don't wear it, yeah I can use it as a wall hanger...
2. OK fine, no buy
3. Went to two Prada stores and its still more than sold out... (anyway they're $800.... so maybe thats a good thing)
4. Hoping for it to last to major sale... They're Jil Sander and also really expensive... But I don't have any non-sneaker or non-boatshoes

Thanks!

hey phil-two do you remember like 5+ years ago jil sander did these gorgeous suede driving loafers in a couple of really pretty easter egg colors - like a mint green, lilac, soft pink & light yellow iirc? i always regret not copping a pair cuz they ended up getting marked down like 75% & i nvr see them around ever & they were ridic pretty

Depends. If they're exactly the right size for your face, yes. If not, they can easily make you look ridiculous.

Unbelievable that they were charging $70 retail for a plastic wedge with elastic in the back. Disappointed, AK.

I got these silver glitter and raffia things from Strawberry for $15 and they're better looking. :( Anne Klein's product management whatever whatever committee should know better.

Back up the lesbian canoe (Laurel), Wednesday, 15 June 2011 16:59 (seven years ago) Permalink

What I'm saying is that I like the 2nd pair and I want to like them even more but I think $27 is a reasonable price because the quality that would justify anything more just doesn't seem apparent.

that navy suit came in -- it's super nice and the jacket fits perfectly in the shoulders. phew. i'll obviously need to take it to a tailor -- I need the pants hemmed and the sleeves lengthened, maybe I'll have the trouser legs tapered a little and the waist suppressed, but all in all it's exactly the sort of starter suit i've been looking for.

mr peabody (moonship journey to baja), Monday, 19 September 2011 15:52 (seven years ago) Permalink

i wish i had occasion to wear more suits. only wear them about twice a year (weddings, prom).

mr peabody (moonship journey to baja), Monday, 19 September 2011 15:52 (seven years ago) Permalink

yeah, i don't have much occasion either. my only existing suit was an emergency funeral purchase, which was fine but not quite good enough. i like that this new suit is a true navy blue and not just a flat midnight blue -- just bright enough to stay youthful without being too bold.
