I sound like a bit of a jerk when I say this but nobody is safe around me and my iPhone camera.  In fact, I’ve become quite stealth at snapping a photo of someone without them even realizing it.

Case in point, this woman I rode with in an elevator last week.  What I first noticed was that she had a lot of Chanel busy-ness going on in her outfit.  The necklace, the hat…it all just seemed a bit overdone and not very effortless.   Next, I realized that it was about 85 degrees outside.  Who wears a wool hat like when it is that hot out?

With her Chanel look in full effect (I couldn’t get close enough to find out if we’re talking real or fake), all I could think about was Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada.  You know the scene, where she is all tricked out, Chanel hat and all?  If you forget, I’ve included a photo of her look side-by-side.


Do you think my elevator friend saw that movie a few too many times?  And, didn’t that movie come out like 5 years ago??!?!


What do you think of this woman’s look? Pretty or Pretty Ugly?
