By Nutmeg on Hierarchy of Airport Crushes

I had a Mildly Attractive guy fall asleep on me on a plane once! I didn't know what to do so I blew on his head until he woke up? I don't know why that was more logical than "wake him up in a normal way"

The only airport crushes I get are on the Delta flight attendant announcing, "This overnight flight is extremely underbooked, so you can go ahead and find an empty row to sleep in if you want!"

@xylophone If you can scrape together the money, I think you'll find it will be worth it. Spending your money on experiences tends to be more fulfilling than stuff.

@camanda : TOTALLY appalling. They're exclusively targeting label whores / collectors of cheap trendy crap now. I have *one* Coach bag, from like eight years ago? When they did the zebra-patterned gallery totes? Because oh god it is zebra, in white patent and kelly green and HOW COULD I NOT?

A related "remember when this brand used to be great?" : Rafe. I have two of their/his early Big Giant Awesome Totes, and love them sooooo much -- embellished, but not too embellished! No gold hardware! Functional designs in fun yet wearable colors! Now everything they have is awkward, wonky, covered with sparkly crap, and $750. Boo. And of course now I go look at their site and I actually found one I like. Uh oh.

Also - fun well-made leather things from a company who doesn't go batshit stamping their logo all over it like we should care? Furla.

@frenz.lo I read an article about Reed Krakoff (the designer responsible for the new style of bags) and, in this piece, another designer characterized Coach as "Hermes for housewives." Withering!

Get rid of your Coach bags, seriously, they're revolting

What is UP with all these coach bag buyers? I just checked the website, and yes, they are all still hideous (minus the classic/vintage ones) and cost well over $300. Are you all taking fashion cues from my midwestern high school class??? I mean, someone had to say it, right? DISSENTING OPINION.

@ginalouise Here is where I admit that everywhere I go, I go in a pair of $9 Forever 21 jeggings. They look exactly like jeans in every way, pockets and zippers and all, except that they are absurdly comfortable and cost $9.

My calves are too big for most skinny jeans (and most boots), but that doesn't stop me from wearing them anyway. I just need to find some that go up to my belly button. What's with all this low rise crap?

@Ellie Don't get me wrong, I love giving The Mothership a sound drubbing from time to time (sue me, I like laughing at Alex when he cries and it's funny when Choire storms around all angry-like), but you can't get mad at them for sounding "Gawkerlike" since, you know, they invented what you're thinking of when you think of Gawkerlike.
