I love ______ because ________.

Here is what the dumb kids in my second grade class would write when the teacher gave them a pre-formatted poem to fill in for their mom for Mother's Day:

Mom
I love my mom because she's nice.
I love my mom because she's pretty.
I love my mom because she makes me pancakes sometimes.
Because, because, because that's why.

And now, why I love this coat, in the form of one of those pre-formatted poems that you had to fill in for your mom for Mother's Day in second grade because the teachers had to cater to the dumb kids who didn't know how to write their own damn poems and there is no bitterness here:


This Coat
I love this coat because the color is perfect.

I love this coat because the cut is very flattering.
I love this coat because the sewn-in tag is so luxurious.
Because, because, because that's why.

Sweet Jesus mine came out worse than the dumb kid's (years of sweet superiority down the drain!) Anyone else care to try?

We love your blog!!!
But I also love this coat (if it were in Black) I've been searching for one ever since I saw Lindsay Lohan in one with white tee layered underneath, jeans and over the knee boats - simple but it looked hot.

It's retro-chic, it's no Armani
Nor is it LAMB by Gwen Stefani
At six hundred bones, what are they, silly?
You get what you pay for at the house of Milly.

Excellent work on your poems, everyone! If we had gone to elementary school together, you all would have sat at the smart kid table with me and we would have reveled in our abundance of gold stars and made fun of the dumb kids.
Jahaute--I saw your shout out today! Thank you so much!

I am bitter at this coat because it taunts me with its perfection.
I am bitter at this coat because I look great in orange but am a broke-ass student.
I am bitter at this coat because it's the end of winter and it's still not on sale.
I am bitter because because because...oh hell, isn't it obvious.

P.S. On a lighter note, thanks daddy for a new addiction:)
