Recent Buys

BuysSecurity TagOver the past couple days, I’ve been spending all the money I got for Christmas (which we celebrated 6 days early this year). With the money, I purchased five things. A short sleeve, pink L.12.12 polo, a blue oxford, a brown (argyle) full-zip sweater, a 4.2oz bottle of Ralph Lauren #4 and a Christmas gift for Ali (which I won’t show/ tell in case she actually reads this). All the purchases were great deals and I love them all! The only problem is that the lady checking me out forgot to take security tag off the polo. Of course I beeped as I tried to walk out, but I didn’t think to look for a security tag. I stood there for a few minutes, waiting for someone to come check my receipt to make sure I wasn’t stealing anything, but nobody came :/ So now I have to go back sometime and tell Macy’s to take it off! I don’t mind too much, it’s an excuse to go look around the mall one last time before I go back to school!

Well, Money has Cotton in it

Money ClothesAlways the creative one, Mom folded bills into little articles of clothing for me this Christmas. If you can’t tell, they’re a polo, pants and a bow tie. The bow tie is my favorite and it looks to be the most complicated to fold. I’ll have to have Mom teach me how to do this so I can have a creative way to leave a tip at restaurants!

Dior Ties

Dior TiesI don’t really look for a name when I’m buying ties, more for the style. The one exception is ties by Christian Dior. I really enjoy his style of tie and it’s a great way to bring a bold color to your outfit (mostly red for me…). So, next time you’re looking for a new tie, consider Dior.

The Hatred of Tommy

So, as a lot of you know, there is an extreme hatred for Mr. Hilfiger in the fashion world. It is said that Tommy gave this quote on the Oprah Winfrey show, ”If I’d known African-Americans, Hispanics, Jewish, Indians and Asians would buy my clothes, I WOULD NOT have made them so nice. I wish these people would *NOT* buy my clothes, as they are made for upper class white people.” As anyone, who has done any research on this, knows, this statement never occurred. You can look all you want, but you can’t find a video of Tommy saying anything close to this. Here’s a video of Tommy, actually on Oprah.

So, hopefully this gets rid of any negative feelings you have toward Tommy Hilfiger or his clothes. It’s a great, American brand that selling the preppy style at a cheaper price than you’ll find of other, similar stores.

Late Night Boredom

Golf BallsSo, I have been a little bored at night lately, so I decided to throw some sharpie on some golf balls. I did the Lacoste one last night. The Polo, Tommy and Pawlak ones were done today. Couldn’t get the logos exactly since I only had black, silver and red, but they’re recognizable.

Lion Brand

Lion BrandSo, today I went to Goodwill with Dad because he said that I could find some great, brand-name clothes for cheap. Also, he was paying, so of course I’m going to go! While there, I found a polo shirt with a brand that I don’t recognize. It’s called Lion… The picture is of the logo on the shirt on the left chest. I looked it up in google, but found nothing. Dad tossed around the idea that it is a tiny, private company that just decided they wanted to make some polo shirts and one of them ended up in that store. I like the fit, and it seems to be of good quality, so now I have the only “Lion” polo that I know of.

Ian Poulter

Ian Poulter 2006 US Open Championship

So, I’ve been watching the Chevron Cup for the past couple days, when it reminded me that I could do a post on one of my favorite golfers, Ian Poulter. This guy always has interesting style! From his Union Jack attire to his, seemingly, obsession with pink, Poulter always brings a great style to the golf course.
