I'm Having a Chico's Kind of Day

Go ahead: ask me. Say it: how are you? Because I really want to close my eyes, sigh and answer, "I'm having a Chico's kind of day." Because I AM, you guys, quite unexpectedly, as I really want this jacket.
What say you? Is this like that time I blogged about the Crocs flats and you all told me not to do it and I felt all red-faced and peed on myself a little in shame even though I still bought them and never told you guys?

I mean, it's not like I'm coveting this bu-tugly shirt so that I can craft my yarn God's Eyes in free-flowing comfort...
Or even the acetate No-Tummy Pant (from the Debbie Phelp's Collection!), though bonus points for trying to solve a problem.
No, I simply think this jacket is kinda' rad. With jeans maybe? Ballet slippers? Hair in a sloppy bun, pretty please if I promise never to finger my lapel like that?
Yay or nay, or is this aw-hell-no-it-might-as-well-be-a-Newport-News-kind-of-day?

I think you have to get it because you have been pining for a faux leopard (cheetah? what is it?) coat via blog posts for at least a year now. It's time. You deserve to roar when it's cold out. :)

YES! Go for it-as long as you don't secretly order the MuMu top and start making yarn daisies on a little plastic hand loom for a couch throw. I love the jacket and jewels can be found anywhere anytime. One of the neatest Objects (French pronunciation/wrong spelling) I've ever seen and coveted was found in the dead of night in the middle of the road. Order away and I'll try to borrow it.

I was going to say yes to the jacket ONLY if you fingered the lapel like that. Oooh, that sounded kinda dirty.

So verdict on the jacket. It is a go paired with flats it would be super cute....but a big HELL NO to that haircut!!

My mother-in-law thinks Chico's and Newport News has, "really unique and different styles". This kills me.
But- yeah- I'm secretly with you on that jacket. Very VERY secretly with you.

No, no, no, you're definitely too young to wear such
a jacket. Get a leather one with a faux leopard lining
if you must, but not this one. It will add 10 years to
your age.

i say hell yes!

Erin said...

I think it's cute. :-0

Cindy said...

I like it, and now I want one too. We would both look smashing in it and would wear it better than that model. I think I would feel like a muppet. In a good way. Yes.
