My dear, and talented friend Rachel Bennett knits these lovely, comfy tube/circle scarves. She makes them in just about every color, and a variety of sizes. She's even started knitting cute headbands in any width your little heart desires. The scarves are essential pieces to your fall and winter wardrobe. They not only keep you super warm through those windy days and chilly nights, but they are also a quick fix to spice up any outfit. You will love it so much, I dare you to be satisfied with just one! Plus, they make great gifts for this upcoming holiday season. :)

This was my Halloween ensemble. I'm from a large college-town, so Halloween primarily consists of girls running around in undergarments disguised as costumes. I walked into a drugstore, and there was a cop wearing navy blue colored bra, underwear, and a badge. She was clearly dressed as a stripper, right? Anyway, since I didn't have time to come up with anything very original, I had to make sure my costume was as unslutty as possible, so I wore pants, covered my midriff, actually dressed for cold weather, and put on some unflattering glasses. People still asked if I was a "sexy nurse." Goddamnit.
And really, it's nothing against strippers, or wh
ores, or what have you. If you want to dress as a hula girl or Madonna that's fine. But what really irks me is when girls dress up as things that are NOT SUPPOSED TO BE SEXY BY ANY MEANS. For example, a Sexy Bumblebee, a Sexy Mad Hatter, a Sexy Pirate, a Sexy Referee. I've even seen at least three Sexy RAGGEDY ANNES this year. WTF.
The boy was a beast this year. He made the costume himself, as well as my apartmen
t a fur-covered hell-hole. He also enjoyed dancing way more while he was dressed up, which was incredibly amusing. If you've never seen a dancing beast, I recommend you try and find one!
So I'm mildly obsessed with vintage swimsuits, and during a school research project I happened to stumble upon the best prototypes for swimsuits ever.
They are from Mack Sennett's silent comedies from around 1915-1920s. I just want to wear one every day of my life. Each one is so unique and detailed, and I love how they are paired with knee-high boots or stockings, and fun hats or scarves. So cute!

So basically I have this blog to document my mishaps, oxymorons, and fashion faux-pas. I don't take myself seriously, yet have the confidence it takes to charge blindly into the crowd of bullshit. I would like to compare this to the art of karaoke: you are going to look like an idiot if you are up there at an oyster shack surrounded by drunks with your brow furrowed and your eyes closed, determined that THIS TIME is definitely your big break, but if you you've got a smile on your face and are having the time of your life, maybe add in a few hearty laughs and some good old fashioned dance moves, hell, it doesn't matter how many notes you miss, people will love you. Or at least I will!
