If I Were Running for Vice-President

palinblack.jpgIf I were running for Vice-President, what would I wear?  In light of Sarah Palin’s recent clothing expenditures ($150,000 and counting), it occurred to me to wonder if I were running for Vice-President, what would I wear? I’m a Brentwood Mom. Jeans? Sweats? No, probably not.

But Sarah Palin’s put herself out there as a one-woman beauty pageant.  I’ve never seen her wear the same thing twice.  By the way, there’s nothing wrong with wearing the same thing twice.  Same jacket, different skirt, same jacket, different top.  By the way, t-shirts look perfectly fine under a fancy jacket.  Could someone teach this girl to accessorize?

Fashion tip:  cranberry goes with almost everything. 

One pair of cranberry heels, one pair of black heels, one pair of beige heels, a couple of pairs of boots, on a particularly long day – wear flats.  Capezios makes a perfectly reasonable pair of flats – you could probably afford them in three colors.  Oh, I forgot you have an endless clothes budget!  Don’t try to defend yourself by saying you only have one pair of glasses. 

Confession: I shop at Saks. In fact, I love Saks. But I usually shop at Saks “on sale”. There’s always something ‘for sale” at Saks. In fact, this week, every retail store in America has something on sale!

Yeah, I know, you said you’re going to donate them all to charity when you’re done. (Sort of the way you put that plane up for sale on E-Bay?) But I have a question. Who gets the tax deduction?

love this piece -- what a silly, ridiculous woman the geezer picked -- proving never make a choice for the wrong reason -- and yet, having her there is so wonderful for our side -- even people who are still pig-headed enough to think there is a reason to vote for john mccain, are mortified by her.
