In light of Lisa’s impending move to Paris for the remainder of the calendar year, food.clothing.shelter is now defunct. Thanks for your support during the first 8 months when we successfully kicked some seriously bad habits. Back to shopping freedom, tempered by newfound restraint. Thanks. —The Mgmt.
OK I also cheated over Mother’s Day weekend when I bought a sun hat at DFW for $10. There, I’m clean. -Lisa
OK I cheated! Bought a box spring on Craigslist for $40. #SoOverMalm. -Lisa
Designer sale at Bergdorf’s NYC…40% off, dying, literally dying…-mnmk
JJB utterly insisted that I “go into Pave and pick out something” for our five-year anniversary. My mind fleetingly thought of the contract, then acquiesed to his request. I shan’t deny him the pleasure of buying me a bauble. Also, as it turns out, we are getting a custom Roman ring made using a 300 B.C. coin feature a lion’s head, so the whole coin selection/design/fabrication process counts as an experience in my book. -Lisa
who is taking me for a mani-pedi today. I think the hardest thing about all of this has not been the no-shopping (although I occasionally feel I might crack) but it has been the no “spa treatment” rule. I do not consider myself a lady that “spas”. I maybe get one facial and one massage a year. BUT, what I do treat myself to is a mani-pedi every other week and this once a quarter thing is KILLING me. Sandra knows that I am on edge so when she said nails her treat tonight - SOLD! -mnmk
but more posts are coming…promise - there have been some absolutely fantastic tales in the past month…in the meantime, we need plans to go see this: http://deyoung.famsf.org/deyoung/exhibitions/fashion-world-jean-paul-gaultier-sidewalk-catwalk!
Don’t go on gilt! It’ll just make you feel bad about yourself. Trust me. I had to spend last weekend at Barney’s with my sister. OMG. -vkc
Marc by Marc on Gilt is hurting my feelings… -mnmk
YOU ARE AN EVIL WOMAN. -Lisa
