Stop Your Shoulder Slinging Ways

A few weeks ago, I shared my feelings about men wearing their coats without putting their arms through the sleeves (See Here.) Shoulder slinging on men is best left for the pimps to swagger on with, but now it’s time to address those women who’ve hit the repeat button one too many times with this street-style craze of wearing their coats on their shoulders.  If you needed a clearer sign that things have gotten out of control with shoulder slinging, I ask to take a look at exhibit labeled “REALLY.”

This week in fashion has been bittersweet. First we lost a very talented woman, L’Wren Scott. Then the end of a particularly brutal Winter, Spring has officially begun. It’s the changing of the guard, endings and beginnings, reminding us that nothing is forever. We have several links that challenge both old ideas (racism, sexism, both) and how to bring in the new (setting our Spring budget, getting to the gym, improving our diets) and even a nicely written post sympathizing with Fashion Blogger’s significant others — they have it so hard putting up with us!

A fashion advisory is in effect for us before spring arrives.  Due to the awful treatment we’ve received from Mother Nature this winter, let’s acknowledge that the first few days we get anything above 60 degrees, all of our common sense will go out the window, and we’ll shop like clothes-starving zombies for things we have no business buying. Drunk in Trends. That’s what that is, and at the end of it all, you’ll be rolling around on the ground alright, but not like Beyonce on a beach shaking your hips. You’ll be on your cold apartment floor throwing a fit wondering where did all of your money go?  This year we should take some knuckle cracking time aside to prepare our wardrobes, wallets and still look “Flawless!”

Hoping For What? My Own New Year.

I started an open letter to myself Dec 31st 2013, reflecting and biding the year goodbye, to get things started on a more positive note in 2014.  I did the same thing the year before and finished it in less than an hour; gif and all.  Unfortunately when it came time to let the words flow, hours before ringing in 2014, I just couldn’t do it.  I never finished that letter, and I haven’t touched it since.  I didn’t really know why I couldn’t just type away the year I had, and get excited like most people around me did. I’m guess it wasn’t my time to celebrate another year because I wouldn’t have meant it.
