Thou Shall Not Covet

Today when I was getting my hair done (everyone deserves a blowout for her birthday), I read "People" magazine cover to cover. Something about a beauty salon makes me crave celebrity gossip. I just had to know how Sandy Bullock got her life back on track--short version: she loves being a mama (and I think she got extensions).

I happened upon a picture of Jennifer Aniston and her new man, whom I will always think of as the premature ejaculator from Sex & The City, looking quite fetching.

She was carrying this purse:



And, she has it in brown!


I want! In black, preferably.

Too bad it's $4,000. While I am quite a shopper, there's no way I can pull that rabbit out of my hat. I met Jen once years ago when I was in law school and working at an entertainment law firm in LA. She was a client of the firm and seriously could not have been nicer. This was back in the Brad days, so I got to say hi to his hairy self too. I completely forgot about that five minutes of my life until I started writing this. Anyway, do you think maybe if I call her up and explain how much I like the bag she might just give me one? She has two! I'd even take the brown.

  2. Oooo I like it! And you're spot on with the gossip mags and salons. The ONLY time I ever read them is when I'm getting my bi-weekly pedi. They're just so fun but I'm always left feeling fat for some reason. Huh.
    I like the black one. It's worth a shot, maybe?

  3. I love her and her style. So "girl-next-door"ish. Too bad that purse isn't "girl-next-door" affordable.

    Happy Birthday!

  9. Is Brad Pitt short in person? I've always wondered. Whenever I run into celebrities, they are surprisingly teeny tiny, skinny and short.

    I like the black one too! 4k is outrageous;)

  10. Well, he wasn't short, but he definitely wasn't tall either. Maybe 5'9-10"? JA is pretty teensy all around. You're so right-every star is smaller than you'd expect.

  11. I think she will probably tire of the purse in about a month, so I say go for it: call her up and ask! That's pretty cool that you met her IRL. She's my age and that depresses me because I don't have arms like hers. I don't have hair like hers. I don't have money like hers. But I've got plenty of kids, and she doesn't have that! So maybe taking a peek into my life would have her saying, "I don't have kids like her.... a husband like hers..." etc. You know what they say about the grass always being greener --

    But yea, $4,000 for a purse? Not my speed either.
