boots update

Been scouring the Internets looking for the gap model boots. And I found a pair that look similar:

Unfortunately, they are $450! Oh well, I will just have to settle on a different pair of boots this year. Don't worry America, I found some good ones while I was looking for these puppies. Boots will be had.

a quest for boots

I was shopping on gap.com the other day and came across some boots on a model that I really liked. They are on the header of the women's outerwear page. Here is a screenshot:

As you can see, she is wearing awesome boots:

But alas, as I looked through the shoes available for sale at the Gap, and then Piperlime, and Banana Republic, these boots were nowhere in sight. Desperately, I emailed the gap looking for answers. This is what I heard back:

Dear Marci,

Thanks so much for your email. We’re very pleased that you're shopping with us and want to make sure you find the perfect merchandise for your needs. Regrettably, we don't have any information concerning the shoes in question. These shoes are either props provided by our advertising company, or are those worn by our models to the production. We apologize for any disappointment this may cause.

We hope this information is helpful and we look forward to shopping with you soon.

This is not the answer I was hoping for. Not only did the gap tease me by showing me boots on their model that I cannot obtain from them, they are not very helpful in helping me find said boots.

So I have set out on a quest to find these boots. I have some of the greatest fashion minds of our times on this case, and hopefully with all my troops we will be victorious in finding these boots.

If you have any information regarding where I can find these boots, or answers, please let me know in the comments area. We can find these boots...together.

the curious case of Dolores the bear.

In high school we had a lunch lady named Dolores who was really old and wrinkly, so we referred to her as E.T. The funny thing was that she actually did resemble E.T. Now I’ve found something that gives me reason to believe that all Doloreses are wrinkly. And it all has to do with a bear named Dolores.

Why they named her Dolores, we’ll never know. Maybe it’s because deep down someone knew she would contract a weird condition that made her lose her hair and expose her wrinkly skin. Maybe they just like the sound of it. Either way, look what happened to this usually furry bespectacled bear…

Poor Dolores lost her fur! And it’s not just her — all the female bears at the zoo have developed this condition and lost their hair. They’ve been having a horrible time keeping the male bears off of them, and many watchdog groups are horrified at the slutty behavior of these females. One prominent watchdog official commented on their flooziness, “The amount of skin these ladies are showing is insulting to women everywhere, and setting a horrible example for our children.” A representative for Dolores refused to comment.

Will Dolores’ fur ever grow back? Will her children be afflicted with the same lack of hair? Would Rogain be a viable option?

Only time will tell.

salon guy

I was leaving work with my friend Andrea yesterday when we were approached by a man who asked us how much we usually pay to get our hair cut. The following conversation went something like this:

Andrea: Um...usually around $100.

Man: After tip and everything? (looks at me) How about you?

Me: Sixteen dollars.

Man: Sixty?

Me: No. Sixteen.

Man: Where do you go?

Me: Supercuts.

(Man looks upset)

Man: You can't go there, you're too hot for Supercuts!

The man then tries to sell us this salon/spa package for $60 each. Needless to say, we declined.
