If you follow me on twitter, you might have read my funny story wearing this outfit. It was a bit chillier on Friday and I was headed to Michigan Ave to run some errands. I do my little bits to save on money so I can fund my shopping habit so I decided to ride the bus (which is $2.25 each way rather than $35 to park by Michigan Avenue). While on the bus, this stylish man said he loved my jacket. When he was departing off the bus he noticed my shoes and said, “Oh and your shoes are even more fabulous! Why are you riding the bus?” It reminded me of the episode of Sex & the City where Carrie tries riding the bus and the bus arrives with a picture of her on the side of the bus 🙂 and a person asks her why she is riding the bus when she is on the bus.
Hope everyone is having a great Monday and if you missed my Halloween look and story, check it out here. Working on our t+j Designs holiday collection launch on Wednesday! Be sure to check back for updates.
Haha, what a great story! I LOVE that coat.xo Josiewww.winksmilestyle.com
I love that episode of Sex and the City because it showed us a more humbled Carrie Bradshaw. (That girl had a serious shoe addiction.) $35 for parking – ouch. BTW, I also like both the coat and the shoes.www.geekettegazette.comwww.thegirlieblog.com

Interesting that in a green sustainable world people would still question taking the bus no matter how fabulous you look.
