What's more important... to look cool, or to look pretty? I choose cool every time.
Pretty is for days when you just got a spray tan and fresh highlights and are wearing no makeup; your flawless glow can literally stop traffic. And then it washes away nearly overnight and you wake up the next morning pale and broken out.
Cool on the other hand, cool is so much more...
Cool is attitude, personality, testing the waters, and showing the girls with the fresh "Manhattan" blow out (I'd say "you know who you are" but "you" likely don't read Elshane's World) that you had that tick inside you yearning for a mohawk braid.
Cool will get you the free drink at the bar and it will get you the job at the PR firm. Cool will put you to bed with a smile on your face.

I don't think anyone shouts, "I'm going to Disneyland!!!!" with pure intentions of coming home with a new designer handbag and hat. But, hey, that's what makes my world a little peculiar I guess.
So, yeah...I did that.
I went on the Indiana Jones ride and landed myself straight into the gift shop where leather safari hats are as abundant as Mickey ears. Then I headed to the children's section of Minnie paradise and scored quite the evening handbag. A true example of "from runway to reality"...but in this case, completely reversed. From mass general population, straight to the couture closet that my stacks of handbags cheerfully call home.
Alaia and Minnie can finally meet! It all makes so much sense now...
Do I smell the next Disney movie sensation in the works?
