I got into an argument with My Better Judgement this morning over J.Crew's new arrivals.
Me: I like that! I still like to put birds on things!
MBJ: Have you bought a J.Crew Tee in the past year that has not developed holes under the arms?
MBJ: Do you want to risk having to throw away an $80.00 tee shirt after one wear?
Me: *sigh* No.
MBJ: And let's not forget that 4 years ago you could buy a tee like this for $45.00 that would not get holes in it.
Me: I know, you're right.
MBJ: What did we JUST discuss, like, 8 seconds ago in regards to J.Crew's tee shirts???
Me: What a beautiful tee! And it's silk, so no holes!
MBJ: And it costs $495.00! Are you on crack?
Me: Well, I could get it for 30% off today.
MBJ: Just stop. You'd hate yourself tomorrow.
Me: I know.
Fair Isle Ski Sweater
Me: See, this is a winter staple, I could wear this for years.
MBJ: I'm not going to argue with you on that. Only...you don't wear all of the sweaters you own now.
Me: We've talked about how much that bothers me.
MBJ: It's ok, you're not going to be in the Deep South forever. There will be other sweaters.
Me: Talk me out of buying this.
MBJ: I don't know if I can.
Me: It is ridiculously impractical, I can't wear a sweatshirt to work, even if it does cost $148.00.
MBJ: You can get it for 25% off if you add a pair of socks or something.
Me: You are really bad at this job.
MBJ: Sometimes I like to wear pretty clothes too, okay???
Boulevard Trench in Windowpane Wool
MBJ: You DO NOT need another coat.
Me: But I don't have any that are printed!
MBJ: Yes you do, remember the camel and red tartan Doncaster trench? Hanging in the closet in your parents' house because you knew you wouldn't get to wear it very much in GA?
MBJ: Yeah. Plus, look at that picture. That coat even makes the model look thick through the middle, so you know it would make you look like Mr. Staypuft. Is that what you want?
Me: *sigh* No, it's not.
Collection Sequin Feather Dress
MBJ: OMG. If you were cooler, you would totally have someplace to wear this dress over the holidays. Why are you so lame?
Me: Ok, now you're just being a bitch.
MBJ: Whatever, you can't afford it anyway.
Me: If it was a really special event, I'd buy it.
MBJ: It looks short-waisted.
Me: I'd buy a bigger size and get it fitted. Might as well if I was going to spend $1500.00 on a dress.
MBJ: A fabulous dress.
Me: Yes, it is a fabulous dress.
MBJ: I'm sorry for being a bitch before.
Me: Thanks, it's ok. Maybe someday I'll have an exciting reason to drop $1500.00 on a party dress.
MBJ: You'd better hurry, you're getting older and I don't think that saggy boobs go very well with sequins and maribou feathers.
Me: You're being a bitch again....
