Luxurious Like Egyptian Cotton

Some people would secretly like to escape to a spa, to the mountains, to the ancient ruins of Rome, or to the library. I would secretly like to escape to a Lush life. Walking in sparkly clothing, dripping with sparkly diamonds, walking down sparkly lit streets, shopping in sparkly stores, and then hop into my black chevy silverado, and drive through the streets filled with big city lights! Okay, scratch that, my very handsome boyfriend, or chauffer, driving me past the streets filled with big city lights! In my secret life, I am luxurious!

So, the closest I can probably get, is last night with Scully, dressed in heels, P-Coats, her's burgundy and mine camel, hats and purses, walking from her high rise apartment in SLC, to the Gateway Mall, which is lit for the holidays, eat at cheap but delicious Costa Vida, and have Scully humor me while I imagined buying sparkly clothes at Banana Republic, trying on sparkly coctail rings at Z-Gallerie, and coveting EVERYTHING in Anthropologie, where I gave in and bought one, on-sale $8.00 sparkly photo frame!

oh dear. The contrast between the 2. :) sounds like you guys had a good time. I can totally see you in your dream life...you exude it. What is a P-Coat? I mean, I know the camel coat your talking about, but where did it get that name?

Scully said...

Panini, I believe it is Pea Coat, but I have no idea where that name came from. I think the original version of the cut was used by the British Navy, but I could totally be making that up. And Esperanza, I too visit FantasyLand to imagine what the Lush life would be like. Mine is a little less sparkly, but every bit as luxurious! It involves a private jet and homes all over the world.

Sounds grand, Esperanza! I too have to admit that wouldn't it be lovely to 'be' instead of just window shopping like "Breakfast at Tiffany's".

About a year ago my world was in need of a maid, that I pay extremely well. ;)

Well, I'm glad to see none of you are criticizing me for being shallow or anything...jk, and I believe Scully is right on the Pea Coat thing.

I covet everything in Anthropologie too...*sigh...

It was worth it, it was worth it, it was worth it. I covet most everything in Anthropologie.

You know, I would love to have an evening in a lush life. That's at least as romantic as a trip to Tahiti... *daydream*
