Listen To The Man

Tim mentions H&M stores. We don't have them in Texas, but my bestest bud, Elyse, took me to one of these stores in Virginia last summer. Oh my. It was a smorgasbord of bargains. I bought an adorable little black dress for about $15. I don't mean to sound like a commercial, but if Tim Gunn endorses a place, you should check it out. Here's a link to their website:

Ummm, Tim, define "bargain shopping." Somehow I don't think we have the same definition.

Notice he never said "I shop for my clothes at Wal-Mart?"

I LERVE Tim!! And he is absolutely right about H&M. They have fantastic, fashionable stuff at very good prices. And Banana Republic may be a lot more expensive than that, but it is still reasonable compared to all those super high end brands that you would think a guy like him would wear, like Armani.

And, I LERVED his comments about comfort not being your guide! I have an adorable friend at work who is the worst dresser - she wears fleece like a freaking blazer. GAH! I just feel like hey, world, I put a little effort into looking decent for you, you can put a little effort into looking decent for me.


Oh, and I finally found my ideal little black dress this past September on wicked markdown at a department store. $25! Wooo! And it fits me like a dream.

Me: Hello. My name is Chicken & Waffles and I am an H&M junkie. I spend indisciminate amounts of coin at this IKEA of Clothing and to you I say, I am not ashamed.

All: Welcome, Chicken & Waffles.

Me: I'm feeling the love. It's been 14 days since my last shopping expedition..

Voice in crowd: Be strong!!

Me: ..yes, but I found such a cute dress for $7.99 and it doesn't need to be drycleaned..

Another voice: H&M is the devil's plaything!

Me: ..and that's bad, because...?

On your next trip to NY Caryl, I will induct you into the wonder that is the H&M. The first taste is free.
