    So Dappered linked to a similar site but targeted towards women called Full Clutch a while back, and I'm enjoying it! Though I'm still having a hard time being arsed to read any blogs daily, I like that I can pop in and see what's happening (much like Temptalia)

    Today's gem is Advanced Style, "Advanced Style offers proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age"

    last night I had a dream that I was wearing yoga pants with short-shorts on top of them as some sort of weird performance art piece involving gender and male-gaze. It was weird.


    I need shoes. something casual and not brown. help a dude out.

    I've always wanted a poncho, but I feel like it would look absurd on me

    either entirely incongruous or like stoner chic

    God I feel ugly today.

    I didn't think agreeing with this would be the best way to convey that I was feeling ugly also and understood completely.

    But I too feel ugly today and understand what that's like.

    i made this! i hand-sewed those panels in, and it was the comfiest thing. the kick pleat would only show while taking long strides, and the light denim made the slightest of trains when barefoot.

    there is a "secret" pocket at the butt, just because i hadn't cut out the extra fabric and why not? also, because butt pocket.

    my "nice" stuff that wouldn't do well thrown into a plastic bag and used as padding for furniture.

    But I too feel ugly today and understand what that's like.

    *hug hug hug* I feel so mannish today. Stubble, feeling bloated and fat and generally disgusting, I hate my hair, I hate my clothes, I hate my voice, and I probably hate a bunch of other stuff, too. And I feel like I'm spinning my wheels! I can't even afford weekly electrolysis appointments! Not even an hour per week! How am I supposed to move? How am I supposed to pay my student loans? How the hell am I ever going to come up with money for SRS and FFS if I need it? I honestly feel like I should just buy lottery tickets and hope for the fucking best, because it feels like my only shot. (I don't play the lottery or gamble)

    I understand completely, lady.

    Don't waste your money on the lottery, though. You have similar chances of winning even if you don't buy a ticket, that's how low they are.
