In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: Where being a feminist doesn’t mean you need to support and like every stupid woman you meet.
FINALLY. Someone who has given a less than glowing account of Lasik eye surgery. I have pretty much the exact same prescription (that is to say terrible), but none of that (current) dryness, etc that Jewel has experienced with contacts. Everyone I have ever talked to about it, raved about it, but I am the kind of person who searches out the bad account so I can have a realistic idea of what it will do to my eyes. Thank you.
“Do you actually wear those clothes or just model them?”, asks Cassie. I can confirm to you that my Instagram #OOTD shots are 100% real. I actually wear (not to mention eat) all that I post, which is why you don’t really see 4″ heels when I am claiming to be toting around my toddler all day for errands and you don’t see any salads gracing my posts as main meals when we all know they’re just snacks to an actual meal (that is not to say it has to have meat though).
These army green pants look kind of perfect, style-wise, for a pair of sleek but casual cargo-esque khakis. I only wish they would tell me the bloody rise of these things. High? Mid? Low? I also like the belted look on these pants and they’re high-rise!
How to write a cold call LinkedIn message and nail an interview. I like it! I don’t do that, mind you, but I would if my industry allowed me to just blindly write to people and actually get a job.
Casual, simple, and STRIPED. This blouse under $50 is very tempting right now especially since I can wear it with white pants and feel very put together.
Being a rather skeptical person, healing crystals are something I’d do as a fun thing to do, but I wouldn’t take it seriously. Crystal power healing is becoming a very lucrative business, which I first scoffed yet, and yet…. I read my Chinese horoscope every year and find it eerily accurate (or maybe I just want it to be accurate so I will my life to bend to its predictions. LOL).
This bodysuit would 100% solve your problems of tucking in a shirt and keeping it tucked in.
I don’t have to like every woman to be a feminist, and I’d wish other women would stop accusing me of being a b*tch for not supporting other women. I support them, I just don’t agree with all of their views or values, which is the same treatment I give to men — the total and perfect definition of equality, in my book.
A saleslady tried to sell me on these exact pants. I tried them on (naturally), but could only think: hot air ballon, up up and away!
Speaking of feminism, I didn’t even realize that I subconsciously look out for these cues for what it is like when I start at a new client (not that I care much, mind you, I am not an employee), but I certainly do make notes, and I even have a checklist of whether or not the company is a good fit for consulting (which determines how much I want to stay, which also determines how much I am willing to bend over backwards for them).
I am a real sucker for shirtdresses, and this one is no exception, with the sleeveless option being great to throw a jacket over.
On lifestyle inflation and spending. Oh man…. The stories I could tell about how when I was younger, I thought $50 was a dang lot of money for something. Now? I am looking at things that cost 6X if not more than that.
The deep, rich, purply magenta colour of these sandals is divine.
THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT
Love all around up in here.
I love it when my great friend & awesome blogger Revanche actually reads my style posts and enjoys them because I feel like she is so much more advanced money-wise than I am, that I sometimes feel super guilty for spending so much on clothing. So when she linked to my post on dressing differently now versus before, I was elated. <3
