^ Juicy stationery Are you kidding me, or is this for real?

It seems the Juicy girls are always being interviewed in magazines, and my favorite bit ever is when one of them said that she considers before buying anything whether she would wear it when she's 70 (the answer must be yes).

check out those timeless lucite heels. they totally elongate your body! and they're timeless cause they'll take forever to decay so that people in 2000 years can still admire them IRL!

doesn't this SCREAM class? at least, that's what some women on another forum say: Hermes & Chanel = automatic great taste and class!

shauna belongs to a separate group, the girl has no class and clearly the money has nothing to do with it.

Audrey Hepburn was super classy and elegant indeed, a fashion icon to many but take in mind that the times where she lived were so different from these. People back in te 50s early 60s were more polite and elegant in general because that was the way they were supposed to be, of course there should be people who broke the rule but the fashion of the decade was beautiful and refined. Now we live in an era of comfort, poor judgement, reality starlets and informality, you wouldnt caught dead audrey in a tracksuit going to the grocery store because she wasnt educated like that "she had class". People doesnt educate their children that way nowadays.

Shauna, Pamela, Aubre ODay etc etc are in a category where having no class at all (at least in fashion) has little to nothing to do with money, there are lots of girls that are struggling to pay for plastic surgery, fake tans and bleach blonde extentions to look like that and have much less money than them, so it isnt a nouveau rich look.

Well said Danielle

When I think nouveau riche I immediatly think labels,and I suppose that's because these people suddenly have money and want to show it off,I think it's more a mindset than anything.


and ta-ta I think the juicy stationary set was posted in the pointless designer accessories if that's the item that was mentioned in here

thanks dumbfairy

Well, im not so good at picking up sarcasm, specially when im not hearing the person say it so i cant tell the sarcasm by only reading. But i dont think i offended anyone with what i said, it wasnt referred to anyone in particular but
