We had no idea Miss Tay was going to kick off a Summer ‘14 Sidewalk Tour, but we wish she’d let us know ahead of time. We would have told her to go have a good long talk with Reese Witherspoon, who knows a thing or two about how to sashay through a parking lot wearing borrowed clothing and accessories.
Because Reese would’ve taken one look at that obviously-empty purse she’s sporting and say “Pfft. Amateur. Would it kill you to carry a book around?”
We don’t mind the bent-elbow method of carrying a bag, but the whole point of it is to carry it in the crook of your arm with your forearm tilted upward so it doesn’t slide off. We don’t think we’ve ever seen someone carry a bag quite like this. If that weighed any more than a pound she’d be in pain after a half hour.
The outfit’s cute, but we don’t like the shoes or the bag. The former are okay, but we think they’d look better with jeans. The bag just looks totally granny to us. It makes us want to say “pocketbook” out loud, because saying “pocketbook” out loud is strangely satisfying. We propose turning it into a swear word, to replace “bullshit.” So when someone’s feeding you a line, you just say, “POCKETBOOK!” at them. Or maybe, “Quit pocketbooking me, dude!”
Okay, we seem to have wandered off a bit. To recap: Cute outfit, slightly off accessories, and she needs to remember to put a brick or something in an empty borrowed purse. Also: call your Aunt Reese, dear.
