    So how does someone like Muffy end up writing for the NYT?

    One Step Up boot-cut exercise leggings. Today’s tee was from Trudie Styler and Sting’s annual Rainforest Foundation benefit.

    I met Adrienne Vittadini for lunch at Swifty’s. I went with Hermès: a black suede fitted jacket with long fringe and nutmeg-colored calf-leather pants. Paired that with Manolo Blahnik ostrich booties and my black Birkin.

    a long-sleeved white Gap tee, khaki Gap pants and a cozy mustard Tse V-neck sweater.

    This tee was one from the New York Jets commemorative 9/11 opening-night game. [...] I wore a camel cashmere Chanel jacket, gray flannel Michael Kors trousers, blush Saks Fifth Avenue Private Label turtleneck and a blush and gray paisley Loro Piana scarf with black suede Chanel loafers. And I carried my burgundy Birkin.

    So I went with a Yves Saint Laurent black velvet tuxedo suit, white satin Naeem Khan blouse and Badgley Mischka’s rhinestone and black velvet belt with black suede YSL pumps. En route to the theater, I took off the jacket and the belt in the car and threw on a cashmere Pucci print V-neck.

    I put on a crisp white Carolina Herrera blouse, and over that, a cream leather Valentino jacket. The off-white wide-leg trousers were also Valentino, and they went with Giuseppe Zanotti camel-colored ostrich high heels and my saddle leather Birkin. I have everything in my Birkins. They hold my world together.

    I put on a taupe snakeskin-print blouse and a taupe Mongolian lamb vest. Both are from Zara. On the bottom, I wore off-white J. Crew bootleg cords and taupe snakeskin cowboy boots. I threw everything I needed into my new GiGi tote in Cayman python.

    I went all loden green in a silk Banana Republic turtleneck with matching Veronica Beard fitted wool blazer and Ralph Lauren suede pants.

    I put on a Ralph Lauren saddle-color suede wrap skirt, white blouse, Levi’s denim jacket and silver conch belt from a little local store in Aspen. I finished with crocodile brown boots.

    I chose a long-sleeved white crewneck tee from the Gap, camel-colored V-neck cardigan and khaki DKNY slacks. I draped on a print Hermès silk scarf and added a saddle-colored Hermès “H” belt. And I wore my beige pony skin pumps from BCBG.

    I put on a creamy white Dolce & Gabbana sleeveless turtleneck dress and draped a cream Christian Dior silk and lace sweater over my shoulders. I added cream Manolo Blahnik heels and a cream snakeskin Lambertson Truex bag.

    I wore the most divine Badgley Mischka Couture silver sequin mermaid-style dress with double tulle overlays. I carried a light and dark silver Judith Leiber minaudière with this Art Deco design.
    hey guys i compiled all this bullshit while wearing once washed Levi's 501 STF and a breton T from APC I just thought you might want to know

    The above reads pretty much like a page from American Psycho...

    Bateman would know what to do.

    By being a rich bitch, obviously. I swear the NYT sometimes drives me nuts with its schizophrenia. It's like when the weekend comes they think all we want to do is snoop into some fantasy life of the rich.

    I recently had my first accidental brush with those kind of people. Was invited to an event and I did not know that it would be all fur and collagen. I literally almost vomited and left after 15 minutes. My girlfriend said "I felt like I was watching TV." It was especially painful after driving through OWS on the way there. I wanted to firebomb the place.

    That just happens dude. It isn't really feasible for most stores to update their online stock immediately as things sell at the brick and mortar. Especially if they're using eBay for a webstore.

    I am now convinced that fund raising is some kind of training for those who are going to hell when they die.

    I tend to forget to cut open the sewn shut chest pocket on
    a coat or a waistcoat ...

    I never cut them open... Especially on wool jackets, when I start using the pockets i feel like they stretch a little bit. Especially if they don't have flaps.

    I actually prefer when usage (and time) takes hold
    of a garment, so that little bit of stretching you are
    mentioning would be a good thing in my book, but
    then again it is safe to say, that the reason why I
    forget is because I hardly use the chest pocket.

    I only cut them open if I intend on using that particular pocket...and I usually don't use outside chest pockets.

    I have never cut an outer pocket on a rick blazer open. I never end up using them because the inner pockets are so huge so I figure I might as well leave them closed for the extra support.

    some items i like so much that i've bought twice. i'm a little worried about assembling a uniform, but not really cause those pieces own.

    i wonder if SZ could pool their grails and garments of historical interest and make a small gallery out of them. in a physical space.

    maybe as a one-off event.

    i wonder if people would be interested to see it.

    I was thinking about something very similar: a thread where members would take nice photos of their favorite pieces, with an explanation of their history, where and how they acquired them, along with the reasons why they wear them everyday/love them so much.
