Chapter Five

Just because your cycling to the gym for pilates and then home doesn’t mean you can’t look chic (especially since you’re going to bike in with your laptop and fix that godforsaken back half of your fifth chapter for the seventh time!!!! I hate you detailed examination of family unity as a source of honor for the early modern English elite…hate you with a burning passion).

In more uplifting news – I’m smitten with the fall 2011 Elie Saab and Valentino collections. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

You are one stylish biker! When I go to the gym I look like a bum. If I could, I would wear nothing but velvet and lace..... maybe I'll get on that.
