I still can’t believe the Giants won – the team I am rooting for hardly ever wins. It’s not that I’m a huge Giants fan (Falcons obviously) but I do like to see Tom Brady lose – forgive me all you Patriot fans. I managed to stay awake long enough to see Madonna in all her glory. I thought she was amazing and her entry was spectacular – though I do have to remind myself that Madge came first and therefore she can’t be accused of copying Lady Gaga. Her performance was fabulous with some fun guests and I loved the ‘mash-up’ with LMFAO. ‘Vogue’ reminds me so much of my university days when I would listen to ‘The Immaculate Collection’ on vinyl over and over again, and I always forget what a brilliant song ‘Like a Prayer’ is. In fact I’m off to iTunes once this is published to download it. Oh and I would die for those boots, and of course to look as hot as she did in them at 53.
So on the most popular day in the U.S. to play hooky I was up bright and early, ready for another Monday – sort of. My legs are flipping killing me after my long run yesterday so I was in need of my comfy clothes again. But refusing to wear sweats out of the house I selected my Hudson jeans, Boden Canterbury tunic, Boden long line cardigan from SS 2011, and my Tory Burch musk Eddies. The tunic is another that I bought early in the AW 2011 season and then returned, only to buy again at a bargain price in the sale. Along with the multi acorn colorway (shown here) I also bought the coal stencil rose, and both, along with the other colors, are still available in the sale for $34 – you’d be crazy not to take a peak. They had many mixed reviews, and yes I did have to size up due to the snug fitting empire waist, and it is a little more cleavage than I would show in a corporate environment, but I love them and no one in the office mentioned me flaunting my ‘assets’ – and trust me they would.
