Royal Tackiness

In case you live under a rock and haven’t heard, today is the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The world has been acting pretty ridiculous surrounding this event. There are some silly, tacky, nasty, ridiculous and just plain funny souvenirs, but my favorites are definitely the ones that don’t take this ‘event’ seriously at all.
Enjoy:

Saw these at Pylones this weekend.

Sadly, this is only available in the UK

FYI

Royal sheets for your stay at special Premier Inns. Not creepy at all.

Come on, the 10 year old inside of you is thinking this too.

And drumroll please for my all time favorite wedding souvenir:


Don’t squint. You’re right. That is Prince Harry on the mug and no, I didn’t make this up.

It even includes ornate detailing and you can buy it here.

Hiring guide or model casting?

This week, American Apparel’s hiring guidelines have been released. And if you’re looking for a job in retail look another way since these are very very very specific guidelines.

Silly guidelines for girls:

a) Makeup is to be kept to a minimal- please take this very seriously. Liquid eyeliner, pencil eyeliner and eyeshadow are advised against; mascara must look very natural (ie. should not be clumpy or a color that does not compliment your skin and haircolor). Blush must not be overdone- should not have glitter or sparkles. Liquid foundation is prohibited (undereye concealer is understandable if it looks natural- ie. not clumpy or caked on, must match your skin tone). Please do not use a shiny gloss on your lips; any lipcolor must be subtle.
b) Eyebrows must not be overplucked. Full eyebrows are very much encouraged. Please do not dye your eyebrows a different color.
c) We encourage long, healthy, natural hair, so please be advised of the following:
-Hair must be kept your natural color.
-Blow-drying hair excessively could cause heat damage, so this is advised against.
-“Bangs” or “fringe” are advised against. It is not part of the direction we’re moving in.

And guidelines for the poor guys:

a) Hair should look natural. Excessive product to the extent of creating stiffness and an unnatural or greasy appearance to your hair is advised against.
b) Eyebrows should be natural. Please do not dye your eyebrows a different color or overpluck them.
c) Males should not wear makeup.
d) Facial hair needs to be kept clean and well groomed. Any mustache or goatee of a contemporary style are advised against.
e) No gauges allowed whatsoever.

At least I’m on the same page as them regarding men plucking their eyebrows.

Am I the only one that thinks this is extra nutty?

Apparently, American Apparel thinks this is nutty too.

Rush Ridiculousness

One of the first image results when you search for 'sorority' on google

I don’t know much about sororities. All I know I’ve learned about TV shows and movies that portray what I thought was a ridiculous sorority stereotype. It’s nice to know they got the stereotype from somewhere, apparently the girls at Cornell’s Phi Phi sorority. They sent out a 7 pagI e list of dress requirements for rush week and here are some favorite of my favorite requirements:

CLOTHING

  • No muffin tops or extreme low rise!!
  • No Cropped pants. Ugh
  • If wearing a skirt tights are necessary!
  • No summer pattern/colors
  • No frumpy
  • No Satin: No one looks good in satin dresses unless it’s from Betsey Johnson or Dolce and Gabbana, you weigh less than 130 pounds, have 3 pairs of spanx on and it’s New Years Eve.

SHOES

  • Nice flats: Tory Burch, etc. More evening-ish understated
  • No sky-high hooker heels!
  • Boots worn OVER pants
  • NO white
  • If you’re wearing cheapo shoes amke sure they don’t look it.
  • No “Fuck-me-pumps”
  • No Tacky/cheapo/pleather. Don’t mess with me.

ACCESSORIES

  • No obnoxious piercings.
  • No chokers
  • No ribbon overkill
  • No plastic
  • No charm. we aren’t 5. unless I say it’s beautiful
  • No forever21 rings
  • I will not tolerate any gross plastic shizz

OTHER NOTES

  • Shaved legs
  • If you don’t know if something is appropriate/works, email me.
  • Blush. This is not optional.
  • No mustaches
  • No chapped lips
  • No sultry. It’s noon people. And these are girls, not laxers. No need to seduce them with caked on black eye makeup.
  • Nails: you best have a mani pedi when you get to Ithaca.
  • Wear perfume
  • Wear deodorant
  • Get waxed, cut, colored and groomed!!! Mani and pedi prior to Ithaca.

I though sororities were about sisterhood, not a ridiculous fashion police. If you must see the full list. They’re all here.

Daily Nails

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Nails

 

I’m a brat when it comes to manicures. I always need my nails to be perfect and have a hard time finding a manicurist I love. It’s not only because I’m picky, which I am, but it has mostly to do with the fact that I used to bite my nails and, unless they’re perfect, I bite and pick until I have no nails or cuticle, and that’s yucky. My pickiness also extends to nail art. I’d never do it. ever. I just don’t like how it looks, but you have to admire the girl from The Daily Nail.

She not only finds creative ways to decorate her nails, but she does it every single day. Talk about sticking to something. She’s been at it since only September 30th and I wonder how long she’ll be able to come up with unique things. She has some quirky and hilarious nail designs. Here are some of the funniest ones.

 

Does it make me neurotic that I couldn’t stop thinking that her cuticles won’t survive this ordeal?

DIY Halloween

I’m a huge fan of Halloween. Not because I’m a fan of trick or treating or because I’m into anything spooky (I’m the biggest coward ever!), but because I’m a huge fan of dressing up. This year I took it too seriously and did not one, not two, but four costumes. I’m especially a fan of making my own costumes. It’s, like one of my professors said, a chance to be an Art Director and show your creativity.

American Apparel knows this, and is using people’s need to show their creativity as a way to promote their brand and the versatility of their clothes. In their yearly Costume Contest, customers upload their homemade costumes to show off and be scored. The prize is just a a$100 gift certificate, but there’s already 1,163 submissions for this past Halloween.

I’m not going to re-post any of these, but I’ve decided to show my favorite homemade costume made by one of my good friends.
