Grease Barbies

These are cute as hell. For those of you Barbie collectors from back in the day, the younger generation got a Barbie's baby sister Kelly (1995) and Tommy. Now they're in my adult hands, in full Sandy and Danny regalia at that. I will continue to bitch about what a craptastic purchase this was, even though I just found them on a site for $29.99 and I only paid $8 at Big Lots on a whim. As the Immaterial Girl always says, if they are useless to me, they are worth $0 and belong in the hall of shame with the bowl of balls and camo hat, but first an open break up letter to the pair:

Dear Kelly and Tommy, I lost all control. It appears I better shape up. It hurts me to say this, but "you're not the one that I want." To my heart I must be true--Oooh oooh oooh.

$8 Grease Barbies = Bargain bin edition of Grease the movie (dancing is freeeeee!)

Michael Kors suede clogs.

I admit it was a bit of a "label whore" purchase when I saw these Michael Kors shoes on sale for $25 at Neiman Marcus. All I saw were the individual parts: shearling, good quality suede, nice silver hardware and little silver studs across the back. If only I had seen the shoes as a whole, for what they truly are: completely useless considering they are winter lined and backless, so loud you couldn't walk across foam without "clacking" and let's face it, damn ugly. I wore them once to take the dogs out last November and they've since gotten a long-term lease in the closet. Sad, really.

$25 Suede clogs = 12 in-sock warming heat packets

Bowl of ceramic balls.

There may have been a moment of channeling David Bowie in Labyrinth when these were purchased, but it doesn't change the fact they are a useless set of balls in a dish and the epitome of why this blog exists...

$25 ceramic balls = Labyrinth DVD, microwave popcorn & six pack of Heineken
