To: Alex Wang, With Love: Ernest Bee...

My Inspiration - Alexander Wang Spring 2010
Today I went for the TKO - total knockout for my non boxing fans. Trained by A.Wang's Spring 2010 collection, I chicly knocked them out of their shoes at work today. Fridays in the office are always very casual and today was no exception.
Note: I'm going to try to start keeping the word count down on the blog, because when I'm reading other blogs I always hate a lot of words and wish for more pictures - the whole acting my shoe size and not my age totally comes into play here. Deal with it!

Any who (watch your word count, watch your count...), I'm going thrift hunting at a new shop that just opened up down the street from my house. And, you'll have to be very, very, quiet, we're hunting GPa cardigans - my all time favorites. Figured since I'm in the retired city of Fort Myers, FL that shouldn't be too hard to find; here's hoping.

Wearing my favorite Zara vest that I first introduced here. The versatility of this piece is just beyond words. More posts are sure to follow because I don't believe in wearing something only once or twice. I LUST (more intense than Love) every piece in my well curated wardrobe that they work double time - cost per wear or CPW is the best logic to use when shopping. Dividing the total cost of something by the amount of times you think you will wear it, gives you the ultimate cost per wear (final retail price in my eyes). For me, this vest started at $40 and now costs me $8. It's value is depreciating faster than the housing market.There's go the word count. Shit! Ok...stay focused...paired the vest with my Marc by Marc Jacobs sweatshirt, Levi 510 Super Skinny jeans, and Aldo lace up oxfords. TGIF!!!
