Something bothering me

So, something's been bothering me this summer. It's a trend. I guess. If you can call it that. I've seen a lot of people (mostly women - isn't it always?!) wearing scarves. And sometimes hats. Like Winter scarves and hats. Not. cute. people. Not cute at all. This is Chicago. In summer. It's 85 degrees with high humidity. It's not like you can be cold. If you are, see a doctor. Eat some soup. I think the next person I see wearing this ridiculousness I might just have to rip it right off of them. On another topic, I have an infatuation with my pedicure dude. Yep, he's a dude. And not at all gay. He's kind of pouty and pissy every time I go in there. So what do I do? Of course I try to engage him in chatter and try to get him to at least crack a smile. Last night I went to see him for my pedi for the wedding this weekend in Denver. Of course, he was cranky. I walk up to him and hand him the black polish I have selected. He said "Why? Why black?" I tell him I am going to a wedding in Denver and need something a little edgy . He thinks about it for a minute. He says "Ok" So, after a fabulous pedi he starts painting my pretty toes. He puts on one coat of black, and follows it up with a coat of pearly pinkish fun. So now my black toes are now purply black. I heart him lots and lots. Am I ready for my trip? No where near ready. But I'm thinking about it!

Move to Boston. We eat scarf people.

Okay we don't, but still, just . . . move to Boston. We're cooler and we have The Rapture. Ask Lauren.

Lazyjade - You are so awesome. I'd totally move to Boston for you! Can I live in your basement?

I think Stuff White People Like had a thing on that a while ago.

My personal favourite? Scarves with flipflops. For a Vancouver winter, it's almost appropriate, but Chicago in summer? Nuh-uh.

OK, my "fashion" trend hate is the dipshit girls who are wearing short shorts or summer skirts with RAIN BOOTS or winter boots on sunny 90° days here in Chicago. W.T.F.? Stinky-ass feet, anyone? Why?? It does NOT look good! I saw a ton of this bad thing at pitchfork, and am noticing it everywhere. It's SUMMER! Cut it out!
