On Aspiring To Be An Effortlessly Cool Woman With $400 Shoes

@TheLifestyleCreep yes. this is me. We should shop together (except we would fight over the same deal) I bought 40,000 dollars "worth" of evening gowns (12 in total) for 225$ at sample sales. I have enough dresses for any type of wedding now. No matter how much the original mark up was made up- I got a good deal for 225.

On Cleaning House With Jenny

@oiseau interesting about the reference to colonialism The united states doesn't produce much any more (in terms of factory goods, crafts, mechanization of farming etc) . but we have a lot of people who need jobs. So the classes divide and service ( or servitude) industry proliferates.

On On Feminism And Fashion

I work in fashion. And i love this perspective!! (I am also often saddened however that even though i am surrounded by women- the companies are still headed by men.) Still i have a female boss who is "aggressive" and i think its great.

On Thirtysomethings Just As Delusional as Twentysomethings

i am feeling like am going ot to throw up. I turned 33 on last monday and broke up with my boyfriend the same day (due not only to his actions that day but for months.) Now im losing my home (we lived together- the apartment is his; im scrambling on CL for a roommate) and i feel like i am starting from scratch. at 33. I can barely function.

On Let's Argue About Prostitution

I don't believe in the legalization of prostitution for only one reason- and it is not morality. A woman of reduced income should not have to consider her body as a means to make ends meet. If prostitution were legal (and accepted) we would have people complaining of women on welfare who could simply get a job by selling herself. (and thereby not need welfare). I would not want big business, congressmen or anyone else pressuring women into the sex trade as a legitimate (and the only) means to feed their family. Of course many are still pressured illegally but for me that is a separate issue. Ah. I am sure I am not explaining myself well but there it is.
