And so one night my best friend called to tell me that he couldn't be only my friend any more because it was too hard and hurt too much. I cried because sometimes that's what I do and felt my heart break because sometimes that's what they do. And who's to say whether it's worse to have your heart broken or be the heartbreaker, because they can both hurt equally bad. But I bandaged it up and went back to my high school life of school and parties and fake ids. And along the way every now and then the bandage comes a little loose and I've had to tighten the knots. But in the end you realize that even the prettiest bow can come undone and underneath all of the bright layers of ribbon you're heart is still there in one piece.

Plus I love their tagline "The thought of animal testing stresses us out. That's why we test our products on humans."

But the entire campaign is really campy and clever and just pokes fun at fashion. They have the in a fake US magazine spread, they have facebook pages, they even look at their own butts. Click over to Modern Destiny to watch a You Tube video that is pretty classic. Still... they are just a little creepy...

My favorite top when I was 10 or 11 years old was a yellow cotton sweatshirt that had puffy paint triangles all over it and a serious set of shoulder pads. I wore it in my school picture with my permed hair . I remember wearing it for my birthday. And chances are I wore it to the roller rink a few times too. It was the 80's... shoulder pads were hot. Even on a little tween girl.
But that was then and this is now. Are you going to try to pull them off again?
2. whether it is ok to wear a skirt with bare legs to work this early in the season... and whether or not you really care
3. really, shoulder pads are coming back?
4. In this economic downtown, is a $4 frozen yogurt still justifiable if you call it a dietary necessity
5. how exactly do they make glow in the dark champagne
kisses for monday.

A: If you live in Italy, then fashion houses (obvi).
The Italian gov't announced a plan to bail out fashion houses. Could you even imagine if the US did that... oh the uproar!

Resisting a nap in exchange for catching up on daily life, like errands and dry cleaning and finally tackling that bag full of clothes that have been begging for hangers for weeks now. Though nowhere in my day will be the power to resist plopping down in the snow, spreading my arms, and making a giant snow angel.
