I Might as Well Fail With Pretty Nails

I'm sitting here, attempting to study for the Medieval Literature midterm that I'm woefully unprepared for, but my brain would much rather talk about fashion.

Sometimes this obsession is a wee bit inconvenient.

If I massacre Dante, Milton, and Boccaccio on Tuesday, I blame Vogue.

Anyway, I thought I'd update you on what I noticed on a Target trip yesterday:

♥ Loeffler Randall for Target = not so great. The bags are super-shiny in a cheap way; the rosette flats (the only L.R. shoes I saw in the store) are in bright, tacky-looking metallics.

♥ N.Y.C. nail polish in tight blue denim is mighty similar to that dark blue Chanel polish that's been big lately. Only it's less than $2.00.

♥ Other people seem to like Boots moisturizer as much as I do; it was clean sold out.

♥ Ditto the Erin Fetherston clearance.

That's pretty much it. Not so exciting, but at least my nails are a deep, glossy blue. If I fail my midterm, I can take comfort in that.

Ah... to know the joys/miseries of shopping in Target...

Target looks good online (sometimes) and bad in person...When I couldn't find the navy shade I wanted for nails, I bought a blue and mixed it with my black. Perfection. Good luck on your exam.

I'm still lovin' OPI's Russian Navy. If only Target carried it! I might have to try out the N.Y.C. shade, though.

I actually majored in Medieval History at university - and no, I have never had a job remotely connected to it, except in that most have involved a lot of research and writing - so take a deep breath, enjoy the fact that your nail color matches that of the Virgin Mary's mantle in most medieval depictions, which color choice, while it represents many things in medieval symbology, is actually rooted in the much more earthly accociation of blue with Byzantine empresses, and you'll do just fine.

My principal major was Classical Studies and I mostly focused on Roman history and Latin. Now I write about shopping and fashion. Go figure.

I still smile when I understand really big words because I saw them in Latin first : D
