Mamma Earth, your K knows cotton and linen and hemp have endured centuries of being plucked from being warm and cozy sun-soaked fields, of being tormented and twisted into gorgeous garments for others pure pleasure and profit.
So Ill save a plant on your big day, and rock instead this vintage 60s minky mink.
Tailored tight to highlight my hot hourglass, its a classically luxe coat in espresso black thats really a figurative green
Vintage mink is how girls named Kristopher do recycling.

Dear Kristopher,
I have my prom coming up, and Im desperately trying to find that one perfect dress: not unflattering, not at all typical, and gorgeous, and hopefully, something that fits in with my budget and stands out in a crowd. Im short, with doll-like features and dark hair. I have an ulterior motive: my ex is going to be at that prom and Id prefer not to appear too drab or too run-down. I admit, I would rather look nonchalantly fabulous, and make sure that when we casually bump into each other Im not going to be the one regretting my choice. Any suggestions?
Your K actually traded her La La Land prom for Puccini the idea of dressing to the nines was tempting, until I realized I could dress to the tens and hit the opera instead.
And while I still have the vintage LBD I rocked, Im wishing Id girled about town in this 24K, 1977 Halston dress.
Pure, iconic S-E-X, though Im afraid you and I both have better things to do with a few Gs.
So invest instead in this brick red, one-shouldered Halston, for few Mr. Benjamins in a timeless cut, the frock will rock right for your big high school night, and grow up with you past prom.
Unlike that silly boy that let you go.

You blew 101 dollars last weekend at Forty Deuce: the cover to get in despite your lovely lady lumps, the espressotini make that two, one for the boy , and the tucking dollars into the bouncing burlesque babies, egged on by your espressotini and your espressotinied boy.
And while youre hardly hard up, doll, maybe its time to reconsider your outflow of cash.
Espressotinis might be mixed at your flat for p.m. play at home, nights better spent reading, writing, investing in your future, and

Its priced like your energy, a soy latte.

Spring is about lightening up, lovelies.
Spring is about ditching any unnecessary weight: any guys and dolls that dont bring you piles of smiles or dollars are deleted from your Blackberry,
any designer duds that dont highlight your hot little body are trashed, and any fat flat or chunky heel that wont make you watch your walk, poise your posture, and straighten your stance so youre closer to kissing the sky gets lost.
And replaced by a heel like these cut-out Jil Sander shoes. Their lime python is green like the eyes of ladies not following your spring clean example, and last seasons heavy wedge is cut out for an awesome arch disinterested in the gravity holding everyone else down.

A very red eye back into La La Land, and your Ks (barely) functioning on her third night of four hours of barely beauty sleep, and third day of three triple soy lattes.
So I slip on a slip of a Miu Miu dress to pad about my pad, to snuggle with my laptop and e-conversate, to force my fingers to fly across my keypad until seven or eight p.m., when Ill slip on skyscraper sandals over tights under my Miu Miu slip to slip out for a date
Ill be sharing soy lattes and toy friend stories with my BFF at Getty.

Im lounging in my second home in New York City
Pick a Starbucks in Manhattan, any Starbucks.
Somehow sitting up straight, fingers flying over my keyboard, building grammatically correct sentences on four hours of sleep, after red eying into JFK and flying two morning meetings in two five-inch platform peeptoes.
Do you ladies being to understand my soy latte fetish?

After sitting down with your Mr. Numbers to figure how to feed Uncle Sam his yearly four-star dinner on your income
Start with a of stock earnings, topped with a pinch of your interest from CDs, with a main course based around your salary, and dessert could be the cream of your mutual fund you had an itch might have better fit your IRA.
Youre left with some skinny green for spare spending for the next few months, and a reminder to stop using some high-rate plastic money.
So make a meeting with this Juicy Couture silver money clip when youre stripped from that mini filing cabinet of a wallet, youll be carrying only bare bones.
Maybe really bare bones
Juicyll take $75 for this clip.

Because it didnt take a diamond solitaire for your boy to lock you down.
Just a couple of hard looks, cold blue eyes, and thick integrity.
Because youre not interested in tying your guy down, outside of p.m. play.
You not-so-secretly like playing single and independent more than him.
Gorgeously gift him this cord Gucci ring. Solid sterling, the Gucci ring is pure like his lust for you
Which keeps you as pleasantly knotted up as the Gucci ring.
