Social Climbers

My small group has been reading The Science of God for the last couple months. When I was ordering it, I knew I would need a more fun book to reward myself with along the way. So I got Social Climbers. I'm so happy I did. I don't really know how to describe it and it wasn't what I expected. Reading about Philadelphia Society was a nice change. Totally made me long for Rittenhouse Square. She describes everyone's outfits in detail througout the book. Love that. There are also these incredibly detailed and funny lists at the end of chapters describing how to tell an SC. There are also some surprisingly honest moments at the end of a book for which I am a total sucker.

I'm With Coco

It's official. The Chanel 2.55 reissue I was planning to purchase for my 30th birthday will have a price increase of $500 on June 1st. This past season they came out with a version with black hardware. No gold. No silver. Just black. It is my ultimate bag fantasy. Fortunately, I got the last one at the 57th street store last Friday and had it shipped to my sister in South Carolina. Well my sister was fortuitously home from work when the Fedex man came today. She didn't even have time to open the package but she did send me a pic. I told her she can open it and use it for the next couple of weeks until I vist. I hope she does. It's far too beautiful to be left sitting in a box!
