SELF-ish Magazine


Self magazine sends out fun, flashy emails, with trendy information all about keeping you fit and current.  Today's email featured an article about the best jeans for your butt so, naturally, I was dying to know what secretive jeans this email was about to reveal.  The email featured some blonde bombshell, with no cares in the world sporting some really adorable outfit.  They broke it down:

Top, Rebecca Taylor, $235; Saks Fifth Avenue, 212-753-4000. Belt, $12; AmiClubwear.com. Bracelet, $250; LuluFrost.com. Shoes, Schutz, $175; Joanna Paige, 305-379-9300.  See outfit here.

Well, thank GOD for the flipping belt (that is invisible).  Everything else is an abominable price and you KNOW that Target's verision of it just AIN'T the same.  Stop sending crap like this.  Stop acting like it is okay for the majority of us to want to spend $250 ON A BAUBLE BRACELET!  That is a car payment.  Sigh.

Point me to the gas station that is selling the next winning lottery ticket.

I could not agree more! I enjoy Mens Health from time to time. I picked up the latest fashion and tech issue. They were showing shoes and watches and pocket flash drives in the $2,000 range. Who has that kind of extra cash lying around? Apparently, only magazine editors do.

No kidding! Who can afford that stuff?! Not THIS girl!

I purposely avoid all fashion sections in magazines precisely because of this. It's absolutely ridiculous. The people who can actually afford that crap? Ain't buying "Self" magazine.

How in the hell can a bracelet be more than the jeans. Is it pure silver?! If so that should be in a safety deposit box and NOT on your wrist as I know mine would totally fall off and most likely fall in a toilet.

I don't even like spending $50 on pants. Like do you have anything for $30 or less?! No. Ok, I will keep wearing this same one pair of jeans I have until those go on sale.
