It rained today on both U.S. coasts – Los Angeles, home to celebs like Jessica Alba, and New York, where I make my humble home.
Both Jessica and I were out in the damp weather today. She was seen heading out on a local shopping trip, while I was taking my school-vacationing kids out bowling.
She looked like this. Polished, professional, rocking the tweedy coat with white colorblock details and the pale heels. Carrying a red purse that surely has never held a baby wipe or a bag of pretzels.
I looked like…well, let’s just say that it would have been kinder to let the cat drag me in. But then, I was in no danger of having the paparazzi capture me heading into the bowling alley.
So enjoy these shots of lovely Jessica combining fashion, shopping and cell-phone chatting, and be grateful you don’t have the option of looking at a gallery of me exiting my ancient van with an empty take-out coffee cup.
