Hipsters

Nothing bothers me more than a hipster who tries too hard to act and dress like a hipster. I am talking about the kind that only shops at Goodwill and American Apparel. The kind that wears dark-rimmed ray ban glasses when they have perfect vision. The kind that only wears side-swept bangs and messy shag hair-cuts. A hipster wants their outfit to like they didn't try at all ("effortlessly cool") and just threw an outfit together but when all is said and done there is no possible way this was effortless...

I think this beard looks just a little hard to maintain...

Socks and Sandals Prohibited in Public





I really hope that no one reading this blog wear sandals and socks, but I am assuming you know someone who does. Maybe your dad? Or your Aunt Cathy from Arizona? This blog post is about enlisting your help in one of this country's biggest fashion faux paw... sandals and socks. If you know anyone who is guilty of this faux paw, please help them to stop, it is for their own good, and of course mine too!

The Scrunchie: It's Back.

Ladies and Gentleman, the rumor is true... the scrunchie is back and honestly I don't know why.
At first I thought it would just go away quietly... but unfortunately for everyone it might be here to stay. This a perfect example of American Apparel bringing back every bad '80s hair accessory and for $4 too! Scrunchies are fashion suicide, and no one since the '80s should be wearing them, except maybe Kimmy Gibbler of Full House.

Consider yourself warned.

Toms

At first, when Toms hit the fashion scene, I was skeptical. Honestly, they were just too trendy. After a few months of contemplation, I decided to go for it and buy the plain grey ones which I absolutely adore! I did go through the love-hate phase with them because first off, Toms are poorly made and second Toms are pretty ugly. But I decided I am not here to tell you that Toms are a fashion faux paw because I don't believe they are, however I am here to tell you that SOME Toms are. Just yesterday Toms released a new collection of shoes, and I have never been so nauseous! Sorry for the dramatic choice of word, but it was the first one to come to mind. Check them out:


Really? Glitter and cheetah print...
A wedged-Tom is never a good idea

So the jury is out, what's the verdict? Are Toms pretty or just pretty ugly?
