Wish the Rebecca Taylor dress was my size, I think I'd love it and it looks nice and long.  The Vince jacket is gorgeous but will probably go into at least the $300s (still worth it but I just have too many black jackets to make it worth it for me).

The men who work here love to go sit in the lunch room and talk politics as loudly as possible during lunch.  Not only is it infuriating since so much of it is pure stupidity, it's just annoying hearing the same conversations over and over.  On top of that, there's another guy who loves being the main convers-er (conversant?) anywhere he is and he always tells all these super long-winded stories, which is fine because I tell stories and I'm long-winded as hell, but the stories are never his.  He's recounting an article he read word-for-word about the conditions in Sochi; we know they're bad, buddy! We all read the same articles!  I'd rather just read it myself than hear you recount (probably incorrectly, at times) and editorialize someone else's experience.

Another reason I miss my old cubicle: it was further away from the cafeteria.  Sigh.


  1. I love findings steals and deals on ebay! I absolutely adore Rebecca taylor!!!

    Meet @ the Barre

    1. I love her stuff too - her dresses and jackets are always adorable, especially at such good prices!

  2. That asymmetrical jacket is perfect! I never really shop on ebay but I'm thinking I should start soon ;)

    1. You really should, there are great things to be found! Plus if you can pay less for the same thing, why not?
