Melania Trump Wore A $1,380 Shirt To Garden And Twitter Is Not Pleased

Melania Trump apparently wore a $ 1,380 shirt to dig up vegetables in the White House garden today, which, okay. I understand that she’s rich, like all first ladies, and it’s totally normal for rich people to wear expensive things. My amazement is with the shirt that cost that much.

The Balmain tartan shirt was “inspired by David Bowie, George Michael and Prince” and has “a rebellious ’80s attitude,” according to Net-A-Porter, even though, in my humble opinion, the blouse looks undistinguishable from several shirts I bought from Uniqlo a few years ago.

The reaction to Melania’s blouse mostly seems to be how is it possible for any shirt to cost that much?

Melania’s shirt, which is apparently dry clean only, was neatly paired with skinny jeans, converse, and cute red gardening gloves. 

Anyway, she looks as happy and comfortable touching dirt as you’d imagine. 

Happy first day of fall, everybody.

22 Olive Garden Employees Share Their Woes With A Side Of Breadsticks

It’s always scary when you’re getting ready to read the confessions of employees that work at your favorite food establishments. While Olive Garden has been the butt of many Conan jokes, all of their menu options taste great and do so without breaking the bank.

But here you are, reading this, knowing that these anonymous confessions mean that you might have to think twice about going back to your failsafe spot. The good news is that if you treat your servers well, then you most likely have nothing to worry about. Beyond that? Well…go ahead and read.

This Garden Is Going To Smell Like Dead Bodies Tonight, And That's A Good Thing

It isn’t often that not being able to smell a dead body in the room is a cause for concern.

But that was the case last week at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, when the much anticipated and incredibly pungent bloom of the Corpse Flower (real name Amorphophallus Titanum) didn’t happen as scheduled.

After waiting nearly ten years for this particular one to bloom, the concern is understandable, though luckily things went smoothly today as the flower revealed its striking red interior and utterly foul stench.

The NYBG website gives us an idea as to how rare of a view this is:

“Each day of careful tending and feeding has led up to this moment: a brief yet glorious window in which the enormous plant (up to eight feet high) will unfurl, displaying the striking red interior and uncanny scent to which it owes its name. This is the first time that a blooming titan-arum has been put on display at the Garden since 1939.”

The event only lasts 24 to 36 hours, and the NYBG has extended their visiting hours and set up a livestream so no one would miss it


They will undoubtedly post a time-lapse video after the event

The first Corpse Flower found its way into their garden in 1932 and bloomed five years later.  It was adopted as the borough of the Bronx’ official flower soon after in honor of the bloom, and remained the official flower until it was replaced by the Daylily in 2001.
