re: cool blue

in response to mister g8s insightful post on jeans

dress math - is a carefully developed justification for purchasing dresses (which i always love to have and anyone who knows me can attest to the fact that i hardly ever wear. though i would like to add in my defense that not wearing them often makes it seem extra special when i do). the rule is based on spacial math, as we all should know, one can cut the distance between two objects in half infinitely, a dress too can become infinitely cheaper. after one wear a $500 dress is a $500 dress, but when applying dress math after two wears that same dress is now a $250 per wear, after three it's $166.66, after four it's $125, and so on until eventually the dress cost per wear becomes nominal. if you buy a dress that's well made and classically designed, this could go on for years.

applying dress math to jeans is like money in the bank. i have half a dozen pairs of jeans and they all now probably cost less than a dollar per wear.

dress math makes a lot of things once considered luxury items only to be had by the ridiculous and spoiled (or crazy) perfectly gettable.

I've literally sat in a store calculating out how many times I need to wear a not yet bought item to make the guilt of the purchase less traumatic. Sure, these Prada sandals are $295 but if I wear them every day from Memorial Day to Labor Day, well, they're practically free! Sir, I'll take them!

'Dress math' sounds like the opposite of 'a slow leak'...
