Smart people in the Parking Garage

Quick Morning Rant...

Walking into work every morning there's about 20 people standing in our parking garage smoking... Maybe I'm an idiot and have no idea what I'm talking about, but wouldn't that seem INSANELY STUPID to light-up in a garage full of fresh emissions??? Like isn't that an explosion waiting to happen?

Additionally, being a non-smoker myself, it doesn't make me feel good to work for an hour on my 'look' for the day, only to have it ruined because I come in wreaking of smoke... just saying...

On a much lighter note: I was totally going to wear FUCHSIA tights this morning, but my mother's voice in the back of my head was screaming "Dress for Success" and "Dress for the position you want, not the one you have"... Hence my black tights with my sweater dress... how depressingly corporate am I??

What are you wearing today?


  1. Hey! I'm from Chicago too and I have a hard time finding preppy clothes while living on a budget. I'm not very creative when it comes to shopping, but I usually shop at American Eagle, Vineyard Vines, Ralph Lauren, Lacoste and the Gap. Any other stores I should be looking at? I want to broaden my closet; I'm kind of tired of cardigans, polos (I have 17...), etc!

  2. Oh, and I don't mind shopping online! (obviously, where else would I get my VV?!)

  3. Hi Erin,

    A few of the others that I like are Land's End (which is sold locally through Sears or online, as well as their Canvas Line); Jack Rogers, Molly B; Lilly Pulitzer (with Spring & Summer I highly recommend, although most northerners have never heard of it); I like the Macy's Brand "INC." typically good pastels; Brook's Brothers; Kiel James Patrick (online); Vera Bradley; It all depends on if you're looking for clothes or accessories. Check out the 'Designers I Dig' section of my blog. Maybe that'll help. Let me know!
