This is for my Dawgz!

Oh, Urban Outfitters. You know just what dog is the best. That’s why I had to buy this men’s shirt. I don’t even care if it’s for dudes, I was rockin’ this shirt down Robson yesterday. Woo!

Dear shoes,

Come on now. We both know how attractive you are. How about you drop down a little from $260?


Power to the Pug!

Some of you were interested in where I got the pug shirt that I am wearing in the “Recycle it!” photo, and I actually remembered where it came from. I got it as a gift from my sister for Christmas last year, but it came from HERE. They have lots of other good shirts in lots of good colors, so check ’em out!

Back to the Future of Fashion

I don’t know what it is, but lately I have been really girly. I’ve bought a bunch of dresses and I own heels and blouses. Maybe I’m on some kind of feminine rush of estrogen?
Either way I am in girly overdrive these days, and today I decided was the day to find out if it were actually a world where an extremely pale, let’s call it porcelain-skinned woman like me could wear red lipstick without looking like a cheap hooker.
Since I’m pretty pale (read: GHOSTLY WHITE), I thought maybe I’d be able to get away with it. So I headed down to MAC and while making my other annual makeup purchases, I asked the sales rep to put red lipstick on me to see what I’d look like.
I thought maybe I could channel Dita Von Teese or something, since I love the femininity of the 50s era.

and it actually wasn’t too bad! I didn’t look like a cheap skank, and it didn’t make me want to lunge at the makeup remover. In fact, I kept in on…….

for an hour.

Okay, I’m feeling pretty girly, but I’m thinking there needs to be a pretty serious excuse for me to wear red lipstick. Am I wrong?

Has anyone else out there attempted to try on red lipstick?

I think maybe if I were donning my now stain-free outfit from H&M that I could maybe pull it off……maybe.
