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.

Rejection Hotline

woman on phone

I thought it was really mean when I found out about The Rejection Hotline (Click here for your local number), but now I know why it exists.

So here’s how the story goes. A guy approached a girl at the bar, she gave him her business card and he left these:

Horrible VoiceMail

Too funny! talk about being full of himself. He’s the perfect example of the kind of guy that deserves to be given the Rejection Hotline number.

Expense-a-Steak

Fraud-o-matic

Expenseasteak.com is a genius micro site for Maloney & Porcelli’s a NYC steakhouse that has found an interesting way to get you to eat there: make the company pay for it.

This stunt from NYC agency Walrus goes beyond digital marketing in a page that’s both clever and charming. You simply have to enter the total of your Maloney & Porcelli’s bill and it will give you a pdf with a series of realistic looking receipts that add up to the exact amount you spent.

What better way to break through the mold then to have a humorous approach to the recession.

It’s advertising at it’s best, but I wonder if anyone has dared to use the fake receipts, especially with the amount of buzz the web page has gotten.
