Pam vs. Dress – Dress Wins!

September 23, 2009

The Dress:

I’m obsessed with the exposed zipper lately, I just can’t seem to get enough, so when I saw this dress at H&M I knew I had to try it on. It went on smoothly and looked awesome! Price check: 39.99! Sold!! I couldn’t predict what was about to happen, but as I went to casually remove this dress from my body it wouldn’t budge. Did I gain 10 pounds from the 2 minutes before? I squirmed and wiggled- nothing!! I literally unzipped the dress in half and the beautiful exposed zipper just kept digging into my skin. Luckily, after quite a fight, I managed to get it off. Looking all disheveled and defeated I exited the dressing room, head down in shame. How humiliating!! And after all this, I honestly still contemplated buying it. Psychotic, I know.

The Aftermath:

Have u ever gotten stuck in a piece of clothing? Did you imagine having to tell the sales woman that you needed the jaws of life to remove it? What’s your most embarrassing dressing room story? Who won?

What’s the most you would pay for a pair of leggings?

September 15, 2009

Leggings are making a comeback in a big way this season, and I’m not just talking solid black here! There are so many options to choose from like animal prints, tie-dye, zipper detail, neon colors, textured, lace, jeweled, buttoned…the list goes on. But what makes 1 pair worth $100 and another worth just $10? Is it worth paying the bigger price for the bigger name or would you rather buy 10 pairs for the price of 1? What’s it worth to you?

Looking for something a little unexpected? Try the exposed ZIPPER!

July 26, 2009

I just saw someone on the street wearing these sandals and I almost tripped over my own feet just to get another glance. I can’t believe I actually found them!! I am really drawn to everything and anything with zipper detail, it adds just the right amount of “edge” to any piece whether it be shoes, handbags, dresses or tops. I think what I love so much about this is that they are always unexpected, like the exposed zippers on the back of the pink/black colorblock dress and blue top below or the zipper on the pocket of the white t-shirt. The zipper always adds a little shock value; spices things up a bit. Are you as struck by these zipper details like I am? I mean, honestly, how can you not be?
