cheap&tacky white trash jewelry she is now hocking on Amazon.com!
pink crystals...ankle bracelets...crucifixes...belly chains!
it is like, SO glamorous everyone.
seriously, though...i realize that this whole post is a big cheap (heh) shot, but has ANYONE under 40 or outside of the extreme midwest worn any of these categories of jewelry since 1993? think...thiiiiink...I can close my eyes right now and envision the last ankle bracelet that I saw; why I believe that it was on a very tanned older lady coming out of church (hey - crucifix connection!) and meticulously arranged UNDERNEATH her too-dark panythose. AHHHH!
of course the line is a perfect compliment to the second season of The Simple Life coming out on dvd, and also coincides with the Sept. 7 release of Paris' book, "Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-in-Chic Peek Behind the Pose." supposedly, even the now-found chichuahua Tinkerbell gets to produce some ink:
"Paris Hilton has a lifestyle most girls dream about. Her name is on everyone's lips -- but can she help it if she was born rich and privileged? Now, with a sly sense of humor and a big wink at her media image, Paris lets you in for a sneak peek at the life of a real, live heiress/model/actress/singer/it-girl and tells you how anyone can live a fairy-tale life like hers.
'If you follow your own plans and dreams and you don't let anyone talk you out of them, then you'll start to get the hang of being an heiress....All you need after that is a good handbag, a great pose, and very high heels, and you're on your way. (Long blond hair doesn't hurt, either.)'
In her fabulous and very tongue-in-cheek -- and chic -- guide, you'll discover Paris's twenty-three rules for How to Be an Heiress (Never have only one cell phone when you can have many), Paris's list of Twelve Things an Heiress Would Never Do (Go out the night after the Oscars), and Three Things Most People Think Heiresses Shouldn't Do, But I Think They Should (Go out with broke guys). Paris also shares private information such as her memories of growing up with her sister, Nicky, and family photos; her favorite designers and her unique beauty secrets; what a night out with Paris is like; her personal gallery of fashion don'ts; and behind-the-scenes stories from both installments of her hit television series, The Simple Life. Of course no book by Paris would be complete without her pet teacup Chihuahua, Tinkerbell, and in these pages, the best-dressed dog in the world shares pages from her own secret diary."
however, I did read the other day that PH wears size 11, so in that way she is sort of my big-footed sister in shoe shopping.
