“I love your [article of clothing]! Where’d you get it?” is probably the most common phrase heard in women’s restrooms around the world.
As women, we have an innate ability to spot the most beautiful winter coat or flowing summer dress from 600 feet away and just know that we have to have it.
As a girlfriend and I were driving to lunch recently, I spotted a girl on the sidewalk.
“I like her coat,” I said while keeping my eyes straight ahead, not even hinting at a gesture toward the girl I was commenting on.
“I like her pants,” my friend immediately responded.
You see, we girls just know. We see things that guys don’t. We know what we like, and when we see another girl wearing something we like, we want it too.
Well, my sartorial sisters, I finally garnered the chops to run down a couple people on the street to ask where they got their clothes.
Then I hunted through local stores until I was able to find a suitable substitute for their choice pieces for sale.
Okay, I know a dude is wearing these glasses, but I love them. And I love them on women, too. I hope this style of glasses will be the ladies’ equivalent of those thick square-framed glasses 3/4 of all Lawrencian males with bad eyesight are wearing. And don’t get me wrong, I love those too. These circle frame glasses from Wink, 806 Mass., are $280.
The infinity scarf has been around for a couple years, but with the coming season, I can’t help but to be drawn to all things snuggly. This girl bought her infinity scarf at Nordstrom, but I found the same type, though not as chunky, at Made, 737 Mass., for $18.99.
Every generation since the 1950s has had an encounter with cat-eye glasses. My mom and my mom’s mom wore them, and now I’m wearing them too.
You can snag some shades like this woman’s at Arizona Trading Company, 736 Mass., for $15. They’re the cat’s meow, if you know what I mean.
