She Needs Better Friends

Here are some of my observations from a quick walk on 16th Street Mall yesterday:

  • If you are going to be a grown up and wear a trench coat - I mean, after all you have grown up job downtown - and you button the coat, you MUST tie the belt, at the very least. You can tie it in the front, tie it in the back, actually use the buckle, but you much cinch the waist like the coat was designed for. If you want a coat that doesn't require this much effort, get a peacoat. She needs better friends.
  • GUYS: If your shoes are black and your pants are black, your socks should be black (or another dark color) too. NO WHITE ATHLETIC SOCKS! He needs better friends.
  • If you're going to wear a suit, make sure that you change your purse from the PacSun Fox fabric bag with bright purple. You looked like a high schooler on a field trip for DECA. She needs better friends.
  • While on the topic of fabric and your ensemble, canvas is only acceptable in a briefcase form, not a purse. She needs better friends.
  • Two words: Camel toe. Enough said. She needs better friends.

Introduction to Caffeine and Cocktails

Welcome to my world that is dominated by caffeine and cocktails...between all I do with work and play, one or both fall in there somewhere.

Being a lady of the town, I work downtown and live my life downtown (although due to recent budgetary cutbacks with grad school loans, I must commute in to live my life, but that is another post altogether. I digress.) at various fabulous places.

Between my friends and I, we chose to experience all that Denver and the Front Range has to offer in nightlife, culture, dining, and generally amazing experiences. Since I also fancy myself a comedienne, I will also have posts from time to time on social commentary and hysterical observations while playing my favorite game He/She Needs Better Friends. Simply put, it's commenting on someone's selections for their wardrobe/hair/accessories and end with "She needs better friends to tell her not to wear that." It's slightly absolves guilt while making potentially disparaging comments.
