Oh Honey, You aren't Dorothy Gale
Please, please, please tell me that you’d never carry a picnic basket into work with you. You may be curious as to why I’d have to ask that. Well, last night my friend, Christian, was telling me about some of the different people he works with at his very respectable job. When he told me that there was a woman who uses a picnic basket instead of a purse ‘as her thing’ – a tiny part of me died. Who told her that was a good idea?!
Dear, poor, woman – it’s not a cute idea. It’s tacky, and even Martha Stewart is laughing at you. Since I don’t know of any kind of program for you, all I can do is offer you substitutes for a casual bag. Please pick one and put it to good use.
I love Dorothy Gale as much as the next gal, but carrying around a picnic basket with no plans of an actual picnic is really…bizarre. And not bizarre in a good way. Maybe if you were a really eccentric actress, with platinum hair, and a pet lizard that you wore on your shoulder you could get away with making a picnic basket-as-a-purse look fashionable. But, I really think probably not.
