Is it me or are socialites kind of sooo last season? Don’t get me wrong, I would love nothing more than to be a thin, blond, pampered beauty. But I think socialites are becoming passe. Granted, Olivia Palermo is here to stay. She transcends “just a socialite” and has managed to carve out a career for being her. I hear they love her in Germany.

There is no doubt that the future holds many keys to the age old question: Where can I find that dress that So-n-So was wearing in that movie I saw last night? As technology marches on, you can be rest assured that the movie going experience is headed in the direction of “escape to the movies for retail therapy”.
