end of the week exfoliation

Good morning! It’s a fairly minor miracle that this is getting posted today! Last night we had a small Jess LC holiday party (which included sangria, Baked Brie salad, and Top Gun). And this morning I am frantically getting all the new orders ready for Susie (I don’t know what I’d do without her), so I can head down to Macy’s for the last trunk show I will do there for the next few months. Seriously. I promise. It’s the last one until spring. So if you still need to do some shopping, come on by and say hi. I will be at the State St. location from 11-5.

And I’d also like to give a shout out to you all for the comments about my Think About It feature. It was so amazing to hear your support and encouragement. It means so much. I am taking your thoughts to heart, and I will try not to disregard the intentional posts that I have maintained throughout the year. I don’t say the word “y’all”, but if I did, I’d say “y’all are great” in my best Paula Dean* voice.

(* No idea why I chose Paula Dean to impersonate. It just happened.)

End of the Week Exfoliation


“Some work shirts that don’t fit anymore.”



“We’re currently selling a microwave… on Craigslist.”

These Aldo rain boots do a fairly good job impersonating Hunter boots. And with the fleece lining, you can’t even tell they aren’t Hunter. That said, they were not the warmest, and I spent much of the 2008/09 winter freezing in them at the bus stop. So now that I have Bare Trap boots, I don’t need these impostors anymore.

When I need new rain boots for the spring, I’ll splurge for the real deal.

  1. Good luck with the holiday orders. Cute boots. My rainboots aren’t particularly warm either…no lining. Do they make warm rain boots?

    Hi there! Thanks for the shout out! I enjoyed meeting you as well. We will definitely hang out some time soon. I’d love to pick your brain, as well as see more of the neighborhood. Good luck with all the last minute craziness before Christmas.

    “Imposters…” You crack me up! I’m dying for some real Hunters myself….One of these days. : ) I hope you had a wonderful holiday lady!

    @ S.E: Ugg makes warm rain boots, but they aren’t as warm as the normal Ugg boots. As for the Hunter liners, they definitely make the boot warmer, and for most climates probably will work perfectly. But for me since I stand outside in Chicago waiting for buses all winter, I want a more serious boot.

    @ Cathy: Thanks! I’ll talk with you later next week?

    @ Kristin: You too!!! I know, the Hunter trick is a great way to look like you spent $115 on rain boots when you haven’t :).
