Here’s a link to an article on someone outraged over Abercrombie no longer wanting larger consumers wearing their label:
Who cares about Abercrombie & Fitch? If they don’t want to make extra large sizes, that’s their choice. They have the right to choose their own target market. Lane Bryant doesn’t make small sizes. No need to make a stink. We get it. They have their own target market. ITS THE EXACT SAME THING. Get over yourselves, there are always going to be skinny teenagers wanting to dress like woodland cheerleaders and faux lifeguards. Your Facebook rant from your couch isn’t going to change anything. Go shop at the “new” JC Penney… they desperately want all of our business and their new ad campaigns are anti-discriminatory. Google it. (Also, their new home collection has the most chic furniture I’ve ever seen…I’m talking West Elm level of coolness)
And to think….protesters are using homeless people to prove a point. How despicable.
It hasn’t been warm in OKC for the past four days. My online shopping is absolutely reflecting my mood. Regardless, I’ve been looking for a new, professional bag for work and some home decorations. I found these two perfect things during my daily laptop time:
1. Vegan Leather “Nocturnal Path Tote Bag” from Threadsense $48. Source.
2. Anthony Burrill Poster from Walker Shop $200. Source.
I took this today via Instagram. I just couldn’t help how perfect his boots looked next to mine.
I have been really wearing the hell out of my “Canadian Tuxedo” lately. An all denim outfit, that is. Well, to be truthful, I don’t own a jean jacket so I can’t quite call a chambray shirt paired with jeans a Canadian Tuxedo. What’s a tux without a jacket? Anyway, it’s rainy in OKC today. My favorite kind of weather. It’s a wonderful scapegoat for lazy behavior and procrastination. However, since my fridge is empty, my closets are ragged and a tax return is in my pocket, I think I’ll get to shopping. Other great rainy Sunday ideas: read a book, fall into a Pintrest hole, play an entire TV season on Netflix while you putz around the house, spend a ridiculous $4 on a Starbucks drink, clean out your closets, clean your sheets and towels, update your resume, put something up for sale on Ebay, balance your budget, try out new Crock Pot recipes….
God I love the weekend.

You don’t have to be in a terrible relationship to appreciate “Foundations” by Kate Nash. Chances are that you’ve dated a total ass at least once in your life and if you’re female, you probably don’t mind Lily Allen….or at least you can appreciate a female Brit with the mouth of a sailor. And to be honest, I don’t know if I could tell the difference between the two girls. This single isn’t very new; It came out with Made of Bricks in 2007 but I just recently discovered it. Oh well. It’s a good one for today.
Although we didn’t quite get our snow day in the metro, Mike Morgan still got to wear his sparkly tie he pulls out for severe weather reports. I chose this week’s love song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside” by Dean Martin. Although it’s probably the most “rapey” of all Christmas songs, everyone still loves it. Plus, I guess It snowed a little.
My boyfriend and I have started going to iHOP a lot recently…which I guess isn’t an uncommon activity. I think we’ve just been burned out on popular brunch joints and want a good deal, a lot of food and anonymity while eating a mound of bacon drizzled in syrup. I don’t mind it one bit, actually.
Anyway, I bought the cutest denim dress from Super Target on Saturday and wanted to share the outfit. The dress was $28 and fits like a 1950′s dream. I was feeling Austin-y and paired it with ankle cowboy boots and retro red lipstick. All I needed was a bandana in my hair and an anchor tattoo on my bicep.
