Alright, so I found this a little amusing. I live in Arkansas. I left after college and moved to Florida for a year, where I got to shop at Saks, Neiman Marcus, etc-- and that's where my designer clothing fetish really got its start! I ended up with a great new designer wardrobe while I was down there (half of it from Saks Off 5th and other outlets because I lived by a HUGE outlet mall and we had Michael Kors, BCBG, etc... I stocked up, I'm a bargain shopper LOL!) So I move back to Arkansas, right? I realized just how long it takes for styles to get here. I was absolutely floored by how people looked at what I wore. So today I walked into work wearing a Diane von Furstenberg skirt (one of my favorite pieces because it's a runway piece I got at a sample sale, it's knee-length with ruffles and floaty ), a BCBG top and Kenneth Cole shoes, and carrying my usual Coach bag. And one of the girls made some snarky comment-- something to the effect of "what is she wearing?!" The girl that made the comment recently got .. er... shall we say, surgically enhanced, and since then has been wearing anything she can that will show off her... er, new assets, we'll call 'em. The result? She looks downright trashy most of the time! I wanted to look at her and make a snarky comment, but I restrained myself. Today's the first day I've really dared to wear any of my bolder designer pieces to work, and this is why! I feel like an idiot because these backwards rednecks are gawking at me-- but when I left my house I felt FABULOUS! :cry: What should I do, ladies-- relegate myself back to boring business suits or ignore what they say? I take real pride in my appearance and this sucks! Isn't it AMAZING how much styles vary from east to west and how long it takes styles to move from the coast inward? It blows my mind!
