As usual..

..the fabulous Rumi is one step ahead of the rest of us. Saw this in the NY Times this weekend.

THERE’S nothing quite like freezing rain and foot-deep slush to make a thermal bodysuit look more appealing than a slinky party dress. Forget the sequins and five-inch stilettos. Right now, downing Champagne in a snuggly romper sounds like the best idea around. Of course, Alexander Wang didn’t have that image in mind when he designed this one-piece for his resort collection. He imagined a girl hanging out in it on a motorboat, then pulling on a black blazer, platform boots and a captain’s hat to hit town. Call us both crazy, but that seems like a wonderfully decadent look in which to ring in the New Year.

I've recently become addicted to Lipstick Jungle, and therefore envious of every ring on every character. These are very Nico Reilly.

Let it be known, I do not like WalMart. I don't approve of their business practices, I try to avoid shopping there at all costs. Sometimes the fashion part of my brain takes over the logical/ethical part of me, and I commit sins I'm not proud of. So a coworker (who has recently lost a ton of weight and gained a love of fashion) points out to me last week that there's a Norma Kamali for WalMart collection, and I just got around to investigating. This batwing sweatshirt cardigan thing is $18, also comes in white and grey. I..don't know what to say. I want one? Of each?
