The sidewalk-to-catwalk iMix

I'm a busy worker-bee today and thus unfortunately don't have the time to opine at length over the horrendous powder blue pencil skirt or the five-inch cherry-red faux patent leather slingbacks I saw on two separate but equally offensive women on my way back from lunch.

What I can do in lieu of critiquing this and railing against that, however, is finally post something I've been meaning to share with you all for some time now:

My *perfect* walk-to-Cosi-and-back iMix

Warning: these beats and suggestive lyrics will make you regret slipping off those heels before you stepped out of the office -- each one of these gems was made for fierce female strutting, not bowlegged, little girl flip-flip-flopping.

"Baby Did a Bad Thing" by Chris Isaak

"Downtown" by Peaches

"Sharp Dressed Man" by ZZ Top

"Panama" by Van Halen

"The Girl's Attractive" by Diamond Nights

"Devil Inside" by INXS


And my shout-out to the mitten-state:

"Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes

I put that Peaches song on my walk to work mix a few weeks back when you first posted it. It's so poppy and unapologetically raunchy - I love it!

i've been reading for awhile now and i'm always amused by how much intern in the city kisses ass. you remind me of so many girls i went to high school with. although the blog is about recommendations i don't think the goal is to have a bunch of carbon copy johannas running around town. get your own personality!

So, so fing hott.

Jessica: word.

Been thinking the same exact thing. It's one thing to download the song, it's another to come back here and talk about it with such please-like-me hopefulness. Good call.

The ZZ Top is a classic!
