Rad Runner - Wine Tea.
HYPE 44

Hi lookbookin' friends! I hope everybody's gonna' enjoy their weekend!!

As I have hinted to before, I've made a conscious and conscientious decision to avoid labels unless there is reasonable justification. I mean, I can understand paying a few to maybe as much as five hundred dollars for a suit if the actual quality of materials and workmanship warrant it. If your Elton John that might be different!

The other day, for the first time I un-fanned someone on lb. I try to be loyal to those I befriend or in the case here, fanned. I doubt she cares, if she even noticed. But, what it is that set me off was her Kelly Hermes transparent hand bag. To me it looked cute but, it also looked like it could've been a door gift or a promo of some kind. I mean, this vinyl bag cost about a dollar to make, maybe two at the very extreme say five! I researched it a bit and the cheapest I found it for was $500.00 with the going rate more like $1200.00!! Can you say INSANITY! Can you spell RIP-OFF! People who BUY into this madness are out of touch! If you'll buy one of these, then what else is in your closet? Why not buy some nice clothes and spend the other thousand (or hundred thousand) bucks on their family or in their community!! Sham and shame should come to mind. Twelve hundred bucks for a glorified vinyl ziploc bag? I'll give ya' twenty or twenty five bucks for it!!

So, today I just want to keep it it simple and start to relax a little!
