Nina's One Hundred - M,N,O

52. Mad Money
None yet.

Nina: Mad Money is the spare fifty-dollar bill you should keep in the secret pocket of your purse or wallet. Place it there and forget about it. You are allowed to spend it only in an emergency, and as soon as you spend it, you must replace it.

54. Mary Janes
Mine are flats. I doubt if they count.

Fun Fact: Mary Janes became popular in the ‘20s and ‘30s, when hemlines rose and there was more of an emphasis on the shoes. Mary Janes became a favorite because they looked great and you could dance in them, a necessary feature in the ‘20s.

Nina’s tips:
•It is best in patent, but why not try velvet or an animal print?
•They should have a bit of an edge. A sky-high heel and pointed toe, maybe studs. They cannot be purely sweet and demure.
•It is best if the strap is thin, so it doesn’t cut off the leg.

What’s in a name? The name comes from a comic book character, Mary Jane, who wore strapped shoes in the Buster Brown comic trip. Mary Jane’s brother, Buster Brown, also had a shoe named after him.

55. Minnetonka Moccasin
Am I interested? Hmmm.

56. Missoni Knit
Pass. Wouldn't mind having non-branded knits.

57. Monogrammed Stationery
None yet.

58. Motorcycle Jacket
Can the leather jacket and motorcycle jacket be one and the same?
I'm still saving up for the former.

59. Nail Polish
Check! c/o The Nail Spa
I switch between dark red and nude / coffee colors.

60. Old Concert T-Shirt
Pass. I'm not sure where I can get one. And if I want to get one.
Vintage-themed shirts are enough for me.

61. One-Piece Swimsuit
Check! Mine’s a black Nike suit.
