We're talking U of Memphis football, and we're talking about...what do you think? 1,000 people are at the game? And this isn't pre-game, like an hour beforehand. This is right now, in the first half.
This is really embarassing, how is a football program and school so bad that NO ONE cares about going?! UM is a very large university, not some tiny little directional school. This is as good as their alumni can do? (Note: I too am an alum, but only for grad school, so that doesn't count - undergrad is where you learn to love your school.)
Why does no one care about their team?

Such as this Alice + Olivia feather skirt. I saw it on shopbop.com a bit ago and I think it's really neat. But...you know. Seems like a goofy thing for an actual regular human being to purchase. :) There's one available on ebay right now however!

Now I just need some places to wear them :)
Ruelala.com and Gilt.com are 'invitation only' boutiques that sell luxury brands at huge discounts. Ruelala 'opens' daily at 10am central, it's an online free-for-all where you log in and try to snap up designer items. The sales last 3 days, but you want to be there at 10am to get your pick of the goods. Gilt.com works the same way, only they start at 11am central.
Both are good sites...Rue tends to have about 5 options a day, while Gilt has dozens - including women, men, children, house items, and vacations. Rue has been having more men's, house, and vacation sales too however. One thing I love about Rue is that they change their main log-in page about once a month to cute colorful pics, as seen below. :)
Examples of upcoming sales for Rue: Lucky brand, NFL gear, Nicole Miller, Juicy, French Connection.
Gilt: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Miss Sixty (gilt lately has been holding off on advertising many brands til last minute)
If you'd like an invite, just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send one your way. Don't worry, it's not as "exclusive" as it sounds....it's not THAT cool :)

Both times, the lead singer was a whiney little girl, complaining about the weather, about the sound, about how crappy everyone working at the facilities were.... he should have been embarassed. At VooDoo they came on an hour late because apparently he was upset about the microphones or something ridiculous. I remember standing like sardines in the crowd thinking "THIS is what we were waiting on?! Them to come out, bitch, and then leave the stage?!" At Musicfest they refused to play any of their famous songs, instead they said they'd only play "songs with a 2-3 beat" (or something, I don't know anything about music, but it was something like that). It was raining, and no one in the audience had the patience for their BS.
I vowed to never see the band again. Yet I have a Cake station on my Pandora - but I only listen to it at last resort, out of spite.
I mean, really, I don't want to pay $35 plus tax to hear them NOT play "Short Skirt Long Jacket" again. :/
For months and months, I have been dying to own a pair of OTK boots that Ann Taylor Loft had for sale, however I could never find the right color in my size at any given time. (They must update their website daily with new stock.) With the 35% off, these Sam Edleman boots were the same price, and I liked these even more. I know it's a big trend right now, but screw it - I like them! I don't really care about what's 'in style' right now or what the trends are, if I like something I'll wear it forever. Fingers crossed they fit and look okay on me! :)

Here's a close up:
Some other items that are currently for sale on the MK website:The buckled gladiator sandal. A liiiiiiiittle pricey at $1295!
The Heidi platform - a more reasonable $150.
The Zanzia over the knee boot for $450 - not sure if I could pull this off, but I'd love to try.
I really like this ombre sequined dress. I had a similar Alice + Olivia one once that turned out to be too big, so I sold it, and I really wish I had another to wear.
I love this belted trench dress....but $1500???? I think not.
They have some great items on sale right now as well:
I love zippers and hardware...this zip dress is $91.
And this zip dress is only $69!
