Showtime’s “Billions” is coming back on!!!

 WWW.LABELMEPOSH.COM

Oh happy day! Billions is one of my favorite television series. I found out the new release date thanks to the stalking of Brian Koppleman’s Twitter page.

Brian Koppleman is one of the co/creators of Billions and each season it comes on, he satisfies my innate desire to know the intellectual, yet filthy, inside dealings of the ridiculously, but fabulously dressed wealthy. We left season 2 with an insatiable Chuck Rhoades  seemingly grabbing the super villain that we love to root for, Bobby Axelrod by the kahoonas. Now he doesn’t have to worry about Bobby wooing his wife with expensive gifts or promised allegiance right?

Read my previous write up about “Billions.”

We don’t know, but what we do know thanks to Mr. Koppleman is that the release date is March 23rd at 10 p.m. on the Showtime network. Give yourself a favor and binge watch so that you can be in the know; while watching I have learned several new terms that I have had to look up to keep abreast with the business lingo expressed during the show. But this is part of the reasons why I love it!

The Mean Girls wear Prada Episode #3 “Dry Snitching” #labelmeposh

WWW.LABELMEPOSH.COM

This particular person is a fulfiller, started the same day I did. Which is why despite the fact that she’s not full-time, I think she deserves an honorable mention.

She’s introduced to me by the supervisor as an equal, I take a breath of consolation because, at last someone I can identify with. I mean she’s a bit unkempt with a scarf on her head and attitude on her sleeve, but maybe she’s not so mean.

During the task we are assigned walkie talkie’s, which I am not a fan of, being a woman of a certain age it feels like an ankle bracelet,  and it wasn’t offered so I didn’t ask nor assume one. I mean, I did not even play with them when I was young. They are practical in their use, they come in handy if the supervisor or manager wants to send you home early or to assert any other kind of authority. So, I’m not opposed to them, I just simply was  not offered one.

After the introduction the supervisor goes off to do something for no more than about 1 minute. My counterpart leans in and inquires in my ear; in a whisper regarding the location of MY walkie talkie since she has been attached to one right away. I tell her that I wasn’t given one and neither do I want one in an equivalent tone, she responds that she hates me her exact words were “I don’t know you and I already hate you.” I don’t like the word hate because it’s so strong, but I chuckle just a little because I mean she doesn’t know me, so she can’t be serious right!?! These kids. That’s my mindset.

The supervisor returns- No longer then 5 seconds later and I am not exaggerating; my counterpart looks away from me and looks DEAD in the supervisor’s face and states “don’t you think she needs a walkie talkie?” My mouth must have dropped 10 inches to the floor I was so shocked, but I gave a corporate chuckle and blew it off.

To this day I still don’t have a walkie talkie perhaps because my supervisor doesn’t have to look for me, she knows that I am doing my job. Besides this I don’t trust the counterpart because she’s done and said some other questionable things.

Anyway that’s it for today. I have another jewelry snob part coming up. You won’t believe the snarkiness of it all.

The cost of “Michelin Star” FINE Dining and why the working class is needed. #labelmeposh

www.labelmeposh.com

I like to eat, eat, eat ooples and banaynays. I enjoy food, my husband and I love a good restaurant, we just went out to “Red the Steakhouse” for the first time this past weekend, and turns out the eating is good; expensive from a working class stand-point but good.

I had no IDEA what a Michelin Star was but, because I like to eat I came across an article on MSN about a gentleman that gave up his “Michelin Star.” Turns out that the Michelin Star is rewarded to renowned chefs that use only the best ingredients and implements the highest standards when creating food. It’s the highest honor and is ranked 1-3 by an anonymous reviewer. Quite the accomplishment!

The ranking however comes with a certain type of exclusivity. The chef is allowed to charge exorbitant prices that caters to the wealthy. A dish can run a person $130.00. Chump change if you’re affluent right?!

Needless to say Chef Brochot accepted the award and come to find out because of the costs he lost customers, money (apparently Michelin places stipulations on the pricing) and had to lay-off staff. The high prices were much too expensive for working class citizens. Thinking of his newfound economic situation Chef Brochot felt he had no choice and gave the star back – without the Michelin Star he could now still serve his favorite dishes but lower his prices in the interim.

As a result he has gained back his lost customer base and is back on track to be a thriving, successful taste maker that he was before winning the prestigious award. Chef Bochot had to go back to the drawing board and now I can keep him in mind should I visit France for a tasty helping of humble pie.

  Now, I’d like to know which restaurants have ever given up the chance to don the “Michelin Star” to be a viable business. Should make for good eating.

Press Play with Atari #labelmeposh #ootd

I don’t post unless I find inspiration in an outfit.

This has to be one of the MOST playful outfits that I’ve worn. I live for the color scheme that I played out against the primarily black undertones. The top even gives a nod to the decade I was born in which is great because I always see the ones depicting the 80’s.

20171225-2146799344

Although all of the above is true the shirt holds a modern millennia feel, it has the popular cold shoulder look and it is midriff (because my abs are no longer defined I added a black t-shirt)

As a play to the colorful rainbow on the sleeve I added my “Fly Doll” handmade earrings to the look. You can only get them here. They are beautiful and unique.

 

 

My joggers add dimension to the outfit with the black and white contrast on the drawstring and on the back of the legs.

I decided to wear heeled booties with this outfit but for a more casual look tennis shoes, (or if you’re from everywhere other than Ohio sneakers), would look just as POSH. Customized “Fly Doll” Feather and Crystal Earrings

Customized “Fly Doll” Feather and Crystal Earrings

You and these earrings will be the life of the party.

These are beautiful,handmade, customized, and vibrant genuine feather earrings for pierced ears; fit for the  posh doll that doesn’t want to fit in.

The best part is that the crystal balls can be swapped out to a different color, I think that’s important for individuality. These earrings will definitely spice up your winter wardrobe, don’t be afraid to stand out especially in such a beautiful way!

The Mean Girls wear Prada Mean Girl #2 #labelmeposh “Customer Dealings with the Jewelry Snobs”

As mentioned in my initial blog entitled the same I am employed seasonal at a well known luxury department store. I am a web fulfiller; I hate the term “picker” because I am a person of color and well, I don’t like the connotation.

In any event I have to fulfill customers’ orders at this particular counter as well. The maker of these pieces owns a very expensive luxury jewelry line and when I fulfill there is a lengthy process that I have to go through that involves wrapping the package just so, but only if the order is over a certain amount and during and after this process I am not allowed to take the order off of the counter.

As stated, I am all about the customer, they are my main concern.

Enter Mean Girl #2

I go to the counter and ask her can she find a particular piece for me. (Let’s rewind) Before I needed her I ask her are there a lot of customers and she tells me yes and begins to explain that her customers hate coming to her due to the fact that she makes so much commission and she is spending all of their hard earned money (of course the customers are saying this in jest because they still come and I took it as such) But in the back of the mind I thought to myself how much she must be overly concerned about sales; back to the issue- the time is ticking for me to fulfill; the clock counts down and the piece that the customer is waiting for to add to their collection or their loved ones’ could go unfilled I was on 32 mins.  I ask the mean girl to help me to find the piece. In the interim an employee who is on break walks up to purchase. She states that she will be with me in 2 mins and that she has a customer.  I look at her and blatantly state “you have a customer (pause) that’s also an employee?” to which I tell her o.k. and walk off to come back. 23 mins left to fulfill for my customer that’s on the web.

I come back to get my item and there is another salesman there who is eager to help, while he’s getting my item together mean girl #2 expresses in front of the other salesman how rude she thinks I am. To which I reply and tell her that I think she was rude. She attempts to explain that although the person was an employee that they still are a customer. I replied o.k. (guilty conscience)? She should have had one, just because a customer is not standing next to me does not make them less of a customer. She continues the condescending speech in front of the other employee and reiterates that I can do it myself. I mentioned in the previous blog that I was thrown on the floor without procedural do’s and don’ts. 15 mins left to fulfill the order. I had no idea I could do it myself. Meanwhile the gentleman is wrapping the piece for me and I try to stop him because mean girl #2 is so adamant about me helping myself, however,  he explains he is going to continue helping, so that the process can go smoother and in the process acknowledges my uncomfortable demeanor and assures me that if no one teaches me how am I to know. He is a grade A employee. Mean girl #2 is still talking.

At this point I am fed up with her tone and I look her dead in the face and remind her that she’s already stated twice that I was rude and how I could do it myself. I told her in a firm but confident manner that she didn’t have to repeat herself any longer. To which she concedes.

It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it, stop treating me like a “picker” and treat me like a web fulfiller an equal because that’s what I am.

Oh yes, I have a mean girl # 3.. although not as bad she’s a bit of a habitual liar. Stay tuned.

The Mean Girls wear Prada; Mean Girl #1- Episode 1 #labelmeposh

  My new seasonal job is interesting, to say the least. I actually love and enjoy going to it. It’s a stylish job, right up my alley.

I fulfill web orders, with that being said, the customers are my main and only concern. I make sure that if you order, you receive your purchase in a timely and efficient manner. More important, that your time is precious and I can’t afford to sit around when you order because a customer that is in the store may come and snatch up your item after you’ve probably spent hours on the web trying to find exactly what you’re looking for. I know..I’ve been there. Let’s talk about the 1st MEAN GIRL.

Mean Girl #1

It’s my first day of the job, I am thrown onto the floor not knowing the rules to the game. So I go into this particular department and grab different customers’ orders (I am all over the store fulfilling orders, there are usually multiple orders to fulfill in 1 department.) Upon arriving in the department I tell one young lady who by the way is very nice; that I will be using the counter, but once all of my orders are fulfilled I will be out of her way. She was fine. In the interim the next employee that I am going to introduce you to screams over the intercom to the pleasant young lady “Did you hear me?”

Enter the aforementioned second employee- MEAN GIRL #1; not so nice. She began to put the items that I had already fulfilled back onto their prospective shelves into the designated area. SIDEBAR: IT IS HARD TO FIND THE ITEMS THAT I HAD ALREADY FULFILLED BECAUSE OF THE SHEER MAGNITUDE OF THE STORE, and she knows this because she is a lifer and I’ve seen her before, after all I have shopped in this store more than a few times myself. Upon re-shelving she noticed that I was behind her and with boxes in hand proceeds to ask me are they mine. To which I confirm. The Mean Girl who probably feels that this is the job that “a million girls would die for” proceeds to let me know that “If I were her, she wouldn’t do such and such and so and so.” (In my head I whisper but you’re NOT me) but, I smile and reply “o.k.” With boxes in hand, she continues to lecture me on what she would not do if I were her. To which I again acknowledge her statement. At this time I tire of her being in my face exchanging in childish banter. So I ask her to put the boxes down.

The way she slammed those boxes down was in the way a spoiled rotten 5 year old would upon hearing they can’t have the last piece of candy, it was pure comedy. I started to bust out laughing but was so shocked, I couldn’t. LOL! The boxes didn’t become disheveled neither did anything fall out of them so everything was “Gucci.” Afterwards all I could hear was her heels clacking against the metal in pure fury.

I can handle it, I am a big girl. Stay tuned for Mean Girl #2. She’s a real doozy.
