The hotness

Get thee to the Barney's Warehouse Sale. I went yesterday, and though it was a total zoo**, I went home with these beauties:


I'm not sure if I'm wearing them under my dress yet, mostly because I'm fixated on wearing blue shoes for reasons unclear to even me, but they'll obviously be part of many a wedding weekend ensemble.

**How big a zoo is the Barney's Warehouse Sale in its first few days? First a little background, there are no dressing rooms and women try on clothes in the aisles, some stripping down to their underwear with nary a hesitation. The Barney's Warehouse pros wear bathing suits under their clothes. This is an actual conversation:

Me: Hi, are you guys selling underclothes this year?
Salesgirl: Underclothes?
Me: Bras? Underwear?
Salesgirl: Oh, let me find out.

A different salesgirl walks by.

Salesgirl: Hey Betty, do you need underwear or bras?

I hear her say "need" and am like "whaaaa?"

Betty looks at me and says: No, anything goes, you can try on however. I saw this one lady...

I stop her right there. She thinks I'm asking if it's ok to try on clothes without wearing a bra or underwear. And she's cool with it!


  1. Did she really call you Betty? Of all the sweetie-isms, that's my absolute favorite, but I haven't heard it in years. We get a lot of Baby down here, which is so uninspiring.

  2. Haha, no, I think the other salesgirl's name was Betty. Not positive I'm remembering it correctly, though.
