Why is it only July 9 and everyone is already acting like summer is almost over? I haven't even been to the Hamptons yet! Back off!
I hate how the fashion industry is always three steps ahead of the rest of us, and by three steps I really mean three seasons. Kudos to you for being such overachievers, but while I haven't even gotten my full Lilly fix yet, I just know that boxes of Fall are sitting in the warehouse waiting to be shipped and it makes my skin crawl. Not to mention that Resort was being steamed in the showroom months ago, and I'm sure Spring 2009 is well underway. Why does everyone have to be so damn professional?
On my way to Apple yesterday, I saw a girl come out of the subway in suede knee-highs. For a moment, I thought it was Mischa Barton.
Is anyone else suffering from Middle of Summer Paranoia? This gal hasn't even purchased her Sexy Summer Sandals yet! I tried to do so on the Coach website this morning, but low and behold, the sandal section has been replaced with the boot section. Even J. Crew snuck some cord pants into their new arrivals... don't think I didn't notice!
I can't take it anymore! I haven't finished my carton of lemonade, jumped in a pool, worn my new madras and rope bikini, fallen in love, or about a million other things that are quintessentially summer yet.
There's still hope, however. In two mere weeks from tomorrow I will be basking in the Hamptons glow, and then again a month later with AEG.
Until then... STOP THE MADNESS!
