I went Christmas shopping today. I am about halfway done. I still have to buy the best friend something (Yes, Ali, I am actually going to buy you a Christmas present this year. You've been warned) and then I have to pick up some things here and there, but for the most part I am pleased with myself. So, I encourage you to get up, put on some comfortable shoes and get your butt over to the mall. While you're there, you should check out the Betsey Johnson owl earrings I bought my sister. I am absolutely in like with them. Note: I actually purchased them at Nordstrom, but apparently they don't have them online, so this is as good as it's gonna get. Cute, right? Right.

I just got this e-mail from my Mom. I love getting fashion citation notifications. Keep 'em comin'!
Just saw a fashion citation. Lady in late 30- 40s wearing brightly colored multi colored orange striped flood water length pants, very visible dark socks, white tennis shoes. Not a pretty sight. (Via E-mail)
Some people just don't get it, do they? Honestly. Not a pretty sight, indeed.
As I mentioned before, I LOVE the Roaring 20s. I also love Gossip Girl. So, when the two combine, it makes my heart warm. On this week's episode, "How to Succeed in Bassness," Chuck's club opened with a Roaring 20s theme and well, it gave me one more reason to be jealous of everyone in this show. Can someone please let me be Blair Waldorf already?
Let's just talk about some of the outfits I did and did not like on the red carpet for the premiere of Michael Jackson's "This Is It."
I have a crush on Katy Perry, I think she's super adorable. I mean, sure she's kind of weird, but weird in an "She's just being Katy" kind of way. But what I am really in love with his her dress. It's unique and gorgeous and if I had her figure, I would definitely wear it.
Oh, Jennifer Lopez. I like her dress, hate her boots.
Paris, Paris, Paris, Paris. What the crap are you wearing? Or not wearing for that matter. Safety pins? Really? It looks like she took two pieces of fabric and safety pinned them together. Honey, you have enough money to buy a whole island, the least you can do is buy an outfit that's in one piece.
Oh good Lord. Gross. Julianne Hough, what on Earth are you wearing? She looks like a vampire, you know minus the whole blood sucking thing. I just do not like this. I don't like vampires either, so I guess that just makes the outfit 10x worse.

Let's just talk about Disneyland for a second. I love Disneyland with a huge chunk of my heart. It's well, dare I say it, the happiest place on Earth. But the people that come to visit are well, fashionless. I mean what on Earth possessed this man to a) Buy these clothes b) Think they were somewhat okay and/or c) Wear them IN PUBLIC. Oh good Lord.
Brooke Gibson The fuzzy orange hat matched his fuzzy boots too! And the sad part is.. He's with his wife and kids...(Via Facebook)
I mean, it's not Halloween yet, so I'm just curious as to what he was thinking. Sigh. Some people will never learn, but that's what I'm here for.
I continue to tell my friends (or any of the people who read this blog) that you are more than welcome to send me a fashion citation when you see it. Whether it be via Facebook, text, e-mail or (my personal favorite) a picture, it will most likely make it up here. It's the least we can do, honestly. So, here's the text I got yesterday from the ever so lovely Rachel Hassey...
FWD: A woman [maybe] fifty wearing lace leggings, flower flats, and a (Via Text Message) dress. Basically dressed like she was fifteen.
At that age don't you think she'd have a husband, kid or even a couple dozen cats to tell her that that is not okay? People never cease to fascinate me.
P.S. If you do have a picture you want to send to me, please e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org :)

Can you believe that someone actually thinks that this is somewhat okay? Thank you Derek for telling me about this, I am sorry that you had to see that. I wish you had a picture though, I can only mentally picture so much...
"Derek Gardner My psych teacher just walked right past me, she has on a light purple collared shirt, a dark purple t-shirt, and purple and brown shoes to match. I just thought with your little fashion blog that you might appreciate this. I wish I had a camera with me because she was looking fetch for sure." (Via Facebook)
So, if you're new to this blog and/or don't know me at all, let me just fill you in on something. I am fascinated by Disney Stars. I really am. I love Selena, Demi and I have an unhealthy obsession with the Jonas Brothers - that one is beyond my control, trust me. Anyways, ever since the little Miley and Demi vs. Selena thing on Twitter, I have been on Team Selena (Even though Miles and Demi denied the rude comments, it was about Selena). That is beside the point, let's just look at Selena's recent outfits. Can we just talk about how much I a) Love her and b) Love her style. It's so sophisticated for her age and I just can't get enough of it. I can see myself in her last gown. Wink wink. It's the dress she won an Emmy in, so who knows what I'll win if I wear it. The lottery, perhaps?
There is nothing I want more than to travel to the 1920s and be a flapper girl for a day or two. I mean, look at the outfits. Just look at them! Will someone please make me one of these dresses? Preferably the third one, but I won't be picky. Okay, maybe I'll be a little picky... I want the second one on the bottom row as well. Heck, just make all of these outfits for me and I'll be as happy as a clam.
I really don't like the Black Eyed Peas. I mean, sure, they have some fun songs - "My Humps," anyone? - I can't think of anything else off the top of my head, but their recent stuff? Oh puh-lease. You stop that now. Two of their songs are stuck in my head and I only know about a line or two and to top it all off, there's THIS...
Sure, I love "Fergalicious" as much as the next person, but c'mon. The purple jacket? The knot on the top of her head? It's ridiculous. There is nothing glamourous about that little ensemble.

Okay, can we just talk about my girl crush on Megan Fox right now? This month she is on NYLON and let me just start off by telling you that I love her. I mean, sure she's kind of obnoxious, she's not a great actress - she's admitted that, actually - and she gives hideous interviews, I still think she is absolutely gorgeous. Just stand there and seduce the camera and you'll be fine, Megan.
I also really like her jacket. I think. It's fun.

I know I am supposed to be on the road to Biola right now, but this just couldn't wait. Well, and I needed to get directions - I have this weird thing about having to get directions even if I know where I'm going, it makes me feel safer, but that's beside the point. Today as I walked out of my American Government class (No sight of pink jumpsuits today, but she still wore Crocs. I swear, she one in every color. It's nauseating.) I got hit in the face with something. I look up to see what hit me (Note: She didn't hit me hard, but my face did run into it.) and it was a Razor. Yes, a Razor scooter. You know, the one you asked for for Christmas when you were 10. Yeah, that Razor. It was folded in half and thrown into an ugly backpack. Who does that? And at school? College nonetheless. The part that really got me - besides the ugly backpack and high(ish) pants (high in a 1990s Mom jeans kind of way, not a cute high pants kind of way) - was the fact that she walked so fast. Sorry, Razor girl, you have a Razor in your backpack. You remember putting it there, right? Why are you walking so fast, can't you just get your Razor out and ride it? People kill me. They're so funny.
I had to take a stalker picture, I'm sorry. But c'mon, that's just silly.

For the love of all that is good and holy in this world. Have you seen Alexander McQueen's Spring 2010 shoes? I am fascinated and horrified all at the same time. (The second one kind of reminds me of The Little Mermaid and I love Ariel, so I guess that's kind of fun).
I love my skinny jeans, they are my life's song. (R.I.P. Skinnies with zippers, you'll forever be missed). I shudder to think that I actually wore flares - flashback to the pink cast, anyone? So now that you know exactly how much I love and appreciate all types of skinny jeans, here we go. In September's issue of British Cosmopolitan I came across something that just tickled my fancy.
"It was first identified in the '70s, but research shows that skinny-jean syndrome (aka neuralgia paresthetica) is back. Symptoms are tingling or numbness of the thighs, caused when too-tight jeans press on the nerves at the top of the leg, and can be made worse by a skinny/stiletto combo. If you're suffering, stick to boyfriend jeans while the nerves repair themselves." British Cosmopolitan, September 2009.
Interesting, right? I'm about 90% sure that I have this. I mean, my jeans aren't super, super tight, but I often feel numbness and tingling, mostly tingling, in my thighs and I couldn't figure out what it was, now we know. I have skinny-jean syndrome. Awesome.
I am totally pulling an Anna Wintour with my new sweater from Old Navy. If you don't read up on fashion blogs, I'll fill you in. You probably recognize the name because she's the fashion editor and editor-and-chief for American Vogue and the supposed inspiration for The Devil Wears Prada's Miranda Priestly. So considering she is clearly very important in the fashion world, if she can repeat her (ugly) outfits more than once, so can I. I bought this sweater from Old Navy of all places, and I have worn it three days in a row so far. Note - I wore it for work, but still. I am tempted to buy another one because it is so warm and comfortable as well as cute. That's hard to find sometimes.

I apologize for starting this blog with a fashion citation, but it is necessary. Today I had a fashion citation panic attack. Where was my fashion citation notepad when I needed it? Yes, I have a fashion citation notepad. Do with that what you will. Let me paint you a picture: Bright pink jumpsuit, white t-shirt, no bra (Sure, the runway models can leave their bras at home and it's okay, but she's in her late 40s. That's unacceptable), a pink purse and... pink Crocs. Note: This was my American Government teacher and I had to stare at her in complete horror for an hour and twenty minutes. She has inspired me to start this blog. I hope she finds this. She needs help. I do this because I care.
