RECESSION? WHAT RECESSION?

"I wanted to see how high up the designer ladder sweatpants went, and it turns out, it's quite far," she says. Cernek found Stella McCartney jersey studded sweatpants for almost $1,100 on Net-a-Porter.com.

Do designers really think their clothes will sell better if the model's face has that "I am a psychotic" look? WTFBBQ?

Of course, it probably does take a psychotic to buy $1100 sweatpants. Or watch "Real Housewives of New Jersey".

Elastic wastebands? Talk about good timing. Order a pair for everyone on the blog. My friend the Nigerian prince will send his bank account number to pay for everything.

I'm sitting here in my old bluejeans reading the article.
But mos'ly, I jes' laugh.

Every time I see an ad for one of those Real Housewives shows, Meanie, I think they need 'so-called' in front of it.

Anyone who considers Mrs. Salahi or any of the other psychotic parasites participants a "real housewife" is really living in a world where $1100 sweat pants is reasonable.

You wear $1100 sweats for a week and the crotch will still stink.

A designer elastic-waistband moment could go down like this, Verdi adds: "Your friend would say, 'Oh my God, are you wearing an elastic waist?' And you'd say, 'It's Stella McCartney,' and then they'd say, 'They're fabulous.'"

"and the scotch is the brand Charlie Sheen fuels his drunken orgies with and my cell-phone is Mel Gibson's (not the brand , the actual phone, he threw it at me and missed) and the Q-tips are endorsed by Prince Charles and Martha Stewart says this mac-n-cheese will do until my guests leave and I can commit seppuku from the shame of not making my own with this replica of the sword Uma Thurman used in 'Kill Bill'. "

"huh, wasn't Stella's dad in a band?"

Barney on HIMYM had Armani sweatpants when he was dating Robin, so Stella is way down the ladder from that great height.

My entire wardrobe probably didn't cost $1100. I wear sweat pants around the house in the winter but they're good old Hanes brand made by God fearing people somewhere in Asia. Right now I have on a pair with Tinker Bell on them. I wouldn't even go to the mailbox in these but I like them. That's another thing I love about this blog. No dress code.

Need extra money?

1. Create a "brand" name like using two famous names from cartoon shows. Mix Charlie Brown and Scooby doo and you have "Charlie Doo" Or "Scooby Brown" (--by the way guys, these two are mine and I have already filed a trademark claim, so don't steal or lawsuit!!!)

2. Buy intact and clean looking clothing at your local thrift shop.

3. Attach fake or real daimonds and studs to the
clothing.

4. Mark it up up up and market to the rich under the
new brand name: "Charlie Doo has just released his designer chic hoodies with day glow trim and diamond studs for $5000 a copy"

5. Give away a few free ones to Oprah, Nate, Jerry
and other celebrities. If they send a thank you or
acknowledgement, publsih it widely!!!

6. sit back and wait for the cash to come rolling in!

Did Charlie Doo step in some Poo or was it money honey?

I keep thinking that if I were rich, I'd use the money for trips to Europe, Hawaii, swimming with dolphins, that kind of thing. I'd probably still buy my jeans and sweats at someplace like Wal-Mart though. If I spent a lot on an outfit, I'd want it to be something other than sweats.
