Buying local-ish

This turned up in yesterday’s paper, and it set me off on a wholly unnecessary tangent:

Local model dresses up nicely

Model Adrianna Standfill wears red patent heels with see-through straps by Christian Louboutin, $675; Loeffler Randall bag, $395; Alexis gauze dress, $525, all from Balliets. [Chris Landsberger/The Oklahoman]

I have Actual Neighbors who could wear that and do it proud; what I can’t do is imagine any of them putting up $1595 to do it.

    LOL, $1595 is my clothing and shoes budget for a whole year – and then some. And that skirt is too short for me.

    Inasmuch as it’s described as a “gauze” dress, I’m guessing it’s not exactly tornado-resistant.

    Definitely not good for fieldwork, either – ticks could find their way in far too easily.
