You’d never know it from my wardrobe, but I subscribe to Lucky, “the magazine about shopping and style.” (It used to just be “the magazine about shopping”–times were simpler then.)
It’s not the articles that keep me hooked, much as I appreciate being given advice on topics like “613 Smart Buys” (SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTEEN? Are these people kidding?) and “What I Want Now!” (The sad thing is I could use some help with that.)
Nope, it’s the compound descriptors that keep me sending in the subscription checks. Here, some favorites–must-haves, in Lucky parlance–from the July and August issues. Think of them as six personality types for the new millennium. Use with abandon!
1) “unbelievably adorable”
2) “sexily bare yet versatile”
3) “somewhere between sporty and tech-y”
4) “slightly prim”
5) “charmingly French, slightly nautical”
6) “elegantly stunted”
Join me over at Bookslut this week, where I’ll be guest-blogging for Jessa Crispin while she’s enjoying a well-deserved vacation. If you’re lucky, I’ll be more 1, 3, and 5 than 4 or 6 about it. No promises about 2.
