Fashion is a Two-Faced Bitch: Ugly Holiday Sweaters

It’s not as though they don’t know they are ugly. They hang on their own rack, segregated from all the other clothes in the store, under a sign that says, “Ugly Holiday Sweaters $9.99 and up”. If the clothing industry had an advocacy organization it would be all over this because, clearly, it is a discriminatory…

I feel bad about my eyebrows…

Nora Ephron wrote a best-selling book about her neck.

Fashion is a Two-Faced Bitch: You Can’t Trust Shoes

It was a typical Wednesday afternoon at DSW. The stilletos were preening, the men’s tennis shoes were trying to look masculine, as were the women’s tennis shoes.  The women’s were winning.  The hiking shoes were making fun of the extra wide sizes, the flip flops were being all nonchalant, and back on the sale rack,…

Fashion is a Two-Faced Bitch: The Original Post

Hi all-this was the original post, published in August 2011,  that inspired the Friday fashion series. I’ve procrastinated as long as I can and have to buckle down and do actual work tonight, so no new post is in the queue for this Friday.  I hope you like this one.  Happy Friday to you.  I’ll…
