Last Fashion Friday

How hilarious are these Celebrity Make Unders from Planet Hiltron? I want one done of me and Dean so I can frame it and put it in our apartment. They totally crack me up!

Anywho I never have enough material to do my Fashion Fridays so I’m going to discontinue it.

Here are my favorite fashion websites for you to bookmark:

Corporette – fashion and career discussion for the office worker bee

Extra Petite – great fashion site for tiny people like me

Honestly, there are so many fashion sites out there. Pick your favorite ones on Bloglovin. If I do come across anything totally fashionable, I’ll be sure to blog about it, but every week was a bit much for me.

Fashion Friday: Brows

Not only was it a holiday weekend, but this is the last weekend before the close of escrow on my home. I’ve kept mum on the sale because I didn’t want to jinx it, but we’re all set to close in a couple days. So we spent part of today (Easter Sunday) moving stuff out of my condo. Not fun! S-T-R-E-S-S!

I wanted to post this on Friday, but got caught up with other things.

Not sure why the pencil-thin Asian eyebrow look has been trendy for so long. They need to go away! I used to have thick brows, but after years of waxing and plucking, they’ve lost their lustre.

I love this look. Thick, defined, and classic.

Fashion Friday: Pick Your Diet, They All Work

I read about this new diet called the Fast Diet, devised by a British doctor. The tag line for the book is ‘eat what you like..most of the time.’ How it works is you consume whatever your heart desires, but on 2 days out of the week, your consumption is restricted to 500 calories.

I am not trying to lose weight, but I am always intrigued by the latest fad diets as I used to be a manic dieter. I find diets and exercise so laughable and kind of defeating.

Here’s the truth. This diet works. Trust me, it does. Want to know another secret? All diets work! Yeah, they all do! I’m not being sarcastic, I’m being completely honest. The Paleo diet, the Atkins diet, the Zone, the lemonade diet (i.e., the lobotomy diet), all of them work. But as soon as you decide you’ve had enough, say hello to that long lost friend called blubber. End that diet and you can say sayonara to that sleek lean body of yours.

I feel the same way about exercise. I know, I know, no one believes me that exercise is bad for your health. But whatever. You just keep running, biking, and taking those yoga classes while I enjoy life.

Because of fertility reasons, I’m banned from sugar, but here’s what I ate on my cheat day—a ginormous chocolate chip cookie from the Grove in the Fillmore.

Fashion Friday: Timeless Gift

Back when I was in high school, a friend of mine gave me this purse that I have been using consistently for decades.

I just used it Friday night for the Raygun Gothic Rocketship farewell party on the Embarcadero. That big aluminum rocketship that has been on the Embarcadero for the past several years? Well it’s getting dismantled this weekend and Space Cowboys had a lovely send-off party with music blaring from their Unimog. They always have the best music.

Anywho, this purse is perfect to carry the essentials: ID, cash, and phone. Easy to dance with the purse around your shoulder without having to hold onto anything.

The person who gave it to me reads my blog so a big big thank you to my friend Cyrnni Ariate! Your gift has brought a smile to my face every time I’ve used it all these years.

Fashion Friday: Pretty in Pink

My life is just nuts right now.

Looks like my website redesign will launch tomorrow. So exciting, but also fearful at the same time. Last night, I had a mild freak-out. I started nit-picking at the design and asked Dean to weigh in on the colors. I felt like a bride who gets cold feet about something at the last minute. I mean, I have been wedded to this current design for years. It’s very sad saying good-bye. So sad that I made sure to take a snapshot of my blog this morning for posterity sake. Ahh, I will miss its clean classic simplicity, but time for a change.

Anywho, here’s a quick post before we head to the weekend. Gotta say something about the fashion at the Academy Awards. I personally LOVED Anne Hathaway’s dress. Not sure why it caused such an uproar. I think she looked adorable! Didn’t think she needed to apologize for wearing it. As long as she felt confident and liked it to begin with, can’t understand why she would say sorry.
