The Matron for Vice President

Hey there, Sarah Palin. The Matron understands that one Mr. Larson was the mercurial mind behind the $150,000 Minnesota shopping spree?

Gee, the Matron bets that was fun.

Turns out, that on Fiscal Policy, the Matron is FAR more qualified to be Vice President. Why, she should've dressed you! Forget Joe the Plumber (who is making the most out of his 15 minuts of fame) and his Joe Six Pack minions! We'd have Matrons for Thrift lining up behind you for miles.

She could turn you out in this, for $42.47.



That's a brand new Coach Purse ($22) , Komarov blouse, ($2.99 );


Ann Taylor skirt ($4.99); vintage unbranded boots ($6.00) and Vintage Borgazia coat for $7.49.

Where the Matron, Joes both Pumber and Six-Pack, recent immigrants from around the world, working class folks white, black and everything in between and cross-gendered, ordinary Americans shop.


Hey! Is that Alaska the Matron sees from her window? That seals it. The Matron is definitely VP Material.

That would be awesome to have her stylists scour the thrift shops to dress her, wouldn't it? I'm imagining a whole Value Thrift the VP documentary.

Look at you and your bad ass maverick self.

Now, you see, clothing is v. expensive here in Australia so I am sitting here goggle-eyed at the prices you have achieved there.

Perhaps Mrs Palin was shopping in Sydney?

Daisy said...

I love second hand shops and thrift stores! clearance sales and outlet malls make me happy, too. I have an aversion to paying full price. Yes, me and Josie six-pack have an outlet mall outing planned soon.

I still want that Coach purse.

Fairlie said...

Yes M, I suspect Sarah Palin was definitely shopping in Australia.

(Oh, and I'm lusting after that Coach purse too!)

And now, what does the Matron propse in lieu of $22,000/month for the makeup artist?

Cha Cha said...

Looooooooove the coat! You are so fabulous!

I think you might be overqualified, Matron, what with thinking and all.

Minnesota Matron said...

Hey, the Matron could take the rest of the budget and get her eyes done. And tummy. And maybe buy some breasts. And a child from India. . .

Tricia said...

I really, really, really want to live near that store!

Miss T said...

Love that coat!

Who cares if you wear brand names at any cost? The thing is to look good and you can do that very well by shopping at funky but decently priced chain stores. You wouldn't believe the outfits you can put together for under a hundred bucks when you learn to mix and match well. Your whole closet becomes a treasure chest of possibilities and endless combinations.

Love. It.

You are infinitely more qualified than her in many ways.
