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
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?
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.
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
Greetings, and welcome to another edition of WTF Wednesday. As I was surfing Memorial Day sales, I noticed a disturbing trend: the Maxi Romper. At first, I thought “isn’t that called a jumpsuit?” But alas, no. It’s a romper with a long skirt. WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY. Rompers are not the devil, unless they… Read More WTF Wednesday: Maxi Rompers
I know it’s not Wednesday. I’m not completely out of touch with reality. But this week has been very busy at work, and yesterday after sitting through a 2-hour family law trial prep session, the only WTF I could come up with is “why do people even get married?” This week’s WTF-ery may be somewhat… Read More WTF Wednesday: It Was All Yellow
Well, Pantsters, we’ve reached WTF Wednesday. As I have been surfing the web, I’ve noticed something: almost all the plus-size retailers are copying one another. I don’t even know who does what first anymore, but within a couple of months, EVERYONE has the same thing. But sometimes, the copying is completely egregious. Like this blazer frpm… Read More WTF Wedensday: Knock it Off.
