I whistled tonight… And out these two came. Let’s call them Fuzzbutt and Styles (Thanks for the names, Door!).

I saw this photo and I made a little squeaky noise involuntarily.

Baby foxes forever. And then just foxes forever.

Happy Orphan Black Day tomorrow!

I am not, usually, that into fan art, but I adore this and would buy a print of it. I’m just a bit obsessed with this show.

Of course, I also decided today that if Tatiana Maslany did one of those con appearances where you had to pay to get your photo taken with her or whatever, I would totally stand in line and do that. (And I want to make it clear that she’s my TV girlfriend so you can’t have her.)

I have Things To Say about this show which I may get to tomorrow. It’s definitely not perfect, but it hits almost all of my sci-fi buttons and I like the overall meta-commentary it’s making.

You totally have time to watch the first season between now and tomorrow. Do it.

So I think this was 1989 (ETA: Or 1990? I’m not sure, but not later than that). Check out the neon, the belt pack, the jelly shoes, the headband, the Bermuda shorts and the Madonna button. This is truly a thing that happened.

I’d also totally wear this outfit now. I have a deeply under-developed sense of shame, though.

"what did you keep in the belt pack? it looks like it could hold a bunch of stuff." - hughbot

Well, this was a long time ago, so I’m not really sure, but I’ll make some stuff up.

Likely whatever spending money I had, which was probably about $5-10. I’m not quite sure if I was into Lipsmackers at this age, but if so, a few of those (and that explains why I hoard Crazy Rumors now). Probably a pair of sunglasses and such. I think it was probably a bit too early for the 1990 Marvel trading cards, but I think I probably would’ve kept my favorites of those in there if it wasn’t.

Another good possibility is any kind of battery-powered toy-ish thing, but I really don’t remember.

I do remember I liked this belt pack because it had all kinds of pockets. I still look for that in bags/etc. The more the better!

A few months ago, I ordered a few things from E.L.F. because it’s cheap and cruelty free and actually mostly decent for the prices (think Wet & Wild/Rimmel quality).

Because of this, I was given a subscription to InStyle. Now, if you know me, you know I’m pretty broke (which is why I’m buying E.L.F. in the first place) and kind of particular about what I buy. Don’t get me wrong: I love clothes and fashion, but I know my style and what I like to wear (I would say about 90% of my wardrobe is purchased from YesStyle).

So I figured InStyle wasn’t really going apply to me. After all, I don’t really care about celebrity profiles or expensive clothes I can’t afford. But then I had a bad day and reading an issue in the tub with a glass of wine sounded like a wonderful idea.

And I was surprised at how much I liked it. I could see examples of trends in various ways (like, say, variations on the color mint, which is supposed to be so hot right now), or sunglasses with colored frames. It shows how to wear things like pleated skirts (which I’m probably not into) or offers up retro swimsuits for various body types.

I completely understand that fashion magazines can be damaging and aren’t based on reality. And honestly, a lot of this stuff is ridiculously priced and advertiser-driven (yeah, even if I had a ton of money, I’m not buying a $400 T-shirt). But I realized I can take away what I want and leave the rest. I can say “Those graphic prints look stupid and aren’t me but I already love metallics so I can do that in a new, cooler way.”

It’s cool if you’re not into fashion or trends or anything. I’m not telling you that you should be. But I think women who are interested in clothes get a lot of shit, like it’s somehow trivial.

But I never saw it like that. My mom was a dressmaker for 20 years and extremely stylish in a very unique way (she still is, and we still trade clothes sometimes!). For me, fashion is about expressing who I am and feeling good about it. It doesn’t feel at all incompatible with anything else about myself. It’s about having fun, too. Clothes should be a fun thing.

(And all the women I know are stylish and beautiful in their own ways. My style doesn’t have to be yours. In fact, it probably shouldn’t be. It should be yours.)

Wear whatever you want, whatever you’re comfortable wearing. And ultimately, I think that’s the point. It’s about who you are and not about who people are telling you to be.

Look who stopped by for breakfast. Momma fox. Funny to see her out in the daylight but I am guessing last night’s terrible weather put her behind schedule.

I was just thinking about how I needed a fox update from MDT.

I like this plan…

Goals next year: Attend SPX or TCAF. 

Clearly the right choice is “Attend SPX.”
