Or No Matter How Much I Spend, I Will Still Be Covered in Dog Hair
And I relented, and said, “Okay, but just don’t eat them over your keyboard,” because I wanted to make her happy and I really like them, too.
Then I saw this whale of a taco at Mashable, and thought, “Stick to your guns. It is NEVER okay to eat tacos at your desk.”
Not that we actually have much winter to write home about in North Carolina. Some winters I don’t even need a coat.
I wanted Kyra Sedgwick’s pink Ralph Lauren trench coat from The Closer, but am completely satisfied with this Rick Owens Belted Jersey Coat. I mean grinning-like-The-Cheshire-Cat satisfied.
I paired my new coat with a cashmere crew (I just like saying “cashmere”) and a Givenchy (pronounced “Jsee-von-shee” for those that want to look smart in front of Tim Gunn and Michael Kors) necklace.
I named the outfit “I Make Too Much Money to Work Here” and added the helpful description, “I totally think that Angelina Jolie would wear this outfit.”
Maybe ‘cause she can afford it.
Then I did the Euro-to-U.S. conversions and grabbed a calculator (which I don’t usually need at Target) and came up with a grand pre-tax total of $4,999.58: boots ($944.70 US), coat ($1,182.36 US), necklace ($2,438.52 US), top ($276.00) and pants (on sale) ($154.00).
No wonder Angelina always looks so good.
Since there’s no way I’m getting a $5,000.00 outfit or even a $1,200.00 coat, I consoled myself with the image of Angelina covered in my dogs’ hair – with that big ol’ taco dropped in her lap.
