In June 2004, my best friend and I attended the premiere of Fahrenheit 9/11. The theater was almost full. The audience lustily cheered, booed, and otherwise loudly reacted to what was playing on the screen. On September 21, 2018, we attended opening night of Fahrenheit 11/9 at the same theater. I bought our tickets online a couple of days… Read More Numbers too big to ignore
Hello, my poor neglected blog. This week, instead of snarking at fashion, I decided to get a little more personal. What prompted this was my somewhat impulsive decision to dye my hair turquoise. Well, I was shooting for turquoise, but I’m still not happy with the color, despite multiple applications and an attempt to lighten… Read More WTF Wednesday: There’s always some reason to feel not good enough
Part of this WTF Wednesday is inspired by a reader request. Louise of SizePlus Dot Net said in a comment that she is not on board with the tassel earring trend. I believe the words “bacteria” and “ewww” factored in. I don’t always think about accessories much, since they either bug me or I’m allergic to… Read More WTF Wednesday: Accessorize This
I’ve had some writer’s block, I guess. I’ve been posting my outfits on Instagram, but haven’t updated the blog. I have things kicking around in my head, but they’re not really….coalescing. Nevertheless, I’m going to at least get caught up with outfit details & hope that the act of writing SOMETHING down clears out the… Read More But the words won’t come out
Somehow, it’s WTF Wednesday already…. In this week’s market research (otherwise known as “online shopping”), I discovered that another retro trend has reared its ugly head. TIGERS. Don’t get me wrong. I was born in the year of the Tiger, so a subtle tiger print or accessory is not out of line. But this shit… Read More WTF Wednesday: The Last Known Survivor Stalks His Prey in the Night
It’s time. It’s time to address the ridiculous, utterly stupid, completely unnecessary return of the fanny pack. Let me make myself perfectly clear: unless you are actively exercising outdoors and there is literally no other reasonable option, fanny packs are not okay. You can try and be all fashion-forward and call them “belt bags.” You… Read More WTF Wednesday: What What on the Butt?
Last week sort of got away from me. I actually started officially working full-time (it had been ~30 hours a week), so I had to adjust to not having a couple of hours a day that I’m used to having. The reasons for not working full-time are mostly linked to (a) back surgery and (b)… Read More I never said I was a victim of circumstance
It apparently is already Wednesday, which sort of feels like it should be Friday and sort of feels like WTF happened to Monday and Tuesday? Nonetheless, I have decided that this week’s fashion WTF is “statement sleeves.” First of all, it’s fucking summer and I want LESS sleeve, not MORE sleeve. Second of all, I… Read More WTF Wednesday: The Statement Your Sleeves are Making? NOPE.
I am happy to report I went to work this whole week and did not wear anything black (on the outside – it would be hard for me not to wear some black undergarments). Here is a week in review: MONDAY (I think I already posted this outfit, but I want a COMPLETE post) Jeans… Read More The lovers, the dreamers, and me
Greetings from WTF Wednesday. This week’s theme is formal (or dressy) shorts. I’m talking about things like shorts suits and those flowy lacy confections that we all know are going to be wadded up and chafing your inner thighs as soon as you take two steps forward. Also, as soon as you sit down, they… Read More WTF Wednesday: Formal Shorts
