Misspellings are NEVER in fashion...



I remember when I worked in a not-particularly-cosmopolitan area of Pennsylvania, I used to wear my Juicy stuff around town and the majority of the people I knew had no idea what it was. Some of my male friends/co-workers would look at my shirt, furrow their brows, and ask me what "Juicy Couch-ure" was. (They had never heard of the word couture, nor could they pronounce it.) This never failed to amuse me. Misspelling the word couture, though? That does not amuse me.

I have designer fashion on the brain today. In a little over an hour or so, I'll be sneaking out of the office early (OK, it's not really sneaking since I was given permission and since I came in early to compensate!) to go to a Betsey Johnson sample sale in the city. I'm a Betsey Johnson addict. I already have some of her handbags, underwear, cosmetic cases... At this sample sale, they'll be selling her dresses for $50 (daytime) and $75 (evening), so I'm hoping to pick up a super-cute bargain (her dresses usually cost a few hundred dollars each, so these sample sale prices are pretty freakin' amazing). I'll keep you posted! :)

Haha, I bought the underwear at a store a while back, not at a sample sale. Didn't see any underwear at today's sample sale, either...that's probably a good thing! :)
