How I got rid of those last ten pounds


When we started this blog for the documentary, I promised myself I would never go more than two weeks without posting. I also promised myself that I would never start a blog post with something lame and apologetic like, Read more

The way you look


I  don't flirt. Ever. Not because I don't know how, but because I just don't like to. Being funny had always been my technique as a server and it was more profitable and less exhausting to maintain than keeping Read more

I believe in Dog


I am selfish and lazy. While I have been working since I was 14 years old and like to think I have spent a fair portion of my life if not in the pursuit of bettering humanity then at least Read more

Gratuity included


It's 2012. I hope I don't need to remind anyone (other than Conservatives and misogynists, if you'll pardon the redundancy) that women are so much more than their looks. We are capable of anything we set our minds to Read more

Parental Guidance Is Advised


A couple of weeks ago, my brother Dan came up for Mum's 75th birthday celebration with his five kids (Paul, 18, Em, 15, Lauren 14, Jon, 12 and Briana, 6), all of whom reminded me of what is was Read more

Di's-appointment


I stand before you, a sinner. I have broken my word.  I have not practiced what I preached. I have failed! Contrition was a big thing in the 80's. People were always apologizing for something or other and apparently it Read more

Eve of the New Year. (Plus Bacon.)

And fun was indeed had by all.


PJ/DRUNCH NEW YEAR'S EVE.

What happens when you add eight pounds of bacon and elastic waistbands to New Year's Eve? Lots and lots of drunken schweatnaps in appropriate clothing.

Towards a Theory of the Leisure Suit Class.

Posted on by tim in Fundamentals, Psycho-Fashion, Read | Leave a comment

 

(We were lucky enough to entice one of our producers, Lawrence Buhagiar, into guest spotting a blog for us. Lawrence is not only an avid chronicler of all things popkultur but he has a background in both neuroscience and sociology– making him eminently qualified to write the following blogpost: Towards a Theory of the Leisure Suit Class)

Recently I came across an article in the New York Times written by John Ortved, a 28-year-old writer and former editorial associate at Vanity Fair, who lives between New York and Toronto, where he was born and raised. Ortved has worked for the likes of Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair’s editor-in-chief, contributed articles on television, film, fashion and comedy to The National Post, Now Magazine, The New York Observer, Interview and V. but is best known for his oral history of The Simpsons, published by Farrar Straus & Giroux.  Ortved considers himself to be a student of popular culture, so I was perplexed by the lameness of his piece.  The article titled, “For Guys, a Great Find Is Often Multiplied,” claims “women shop, men stockpile.”  Women, we are told, see shopping as a social or even therapeutic activity, whereas for men shopping is simply “a necessary evil, a moment to restock the supply closet.” Read more

Tastemaker. Now there is a word I dislike intensely. The idea that someone could make those decisions for me is both repugnant and presumptuous.

But… what’s a boy to do in a world with information streams propagating like fruit flies in a lab.

How to render me almost completely speechless

Posted on by jess in Fashion Bad, Psycho-Fashion | Leave a comment

Words cannot adequately capture the moment of horror I experienced upon realizing that the following article of clothing is not in fact a joke put forth by the good people at Huffington Post. I’m still a little stunned but I knew it had to be shared with the world, if only so that you can all be appalled with me.

So without further ado, I give you what I consider to be one of the worst articles of clothing I have seen in a long time (and I saw a woman wearing flannel pjs and Crocs to work yesterday)… Read more

NO, Di Golding, there ISN’T a Santa Claus (spoiler alert!)

“Christmas is gonna be tough”.

Everyone that knows about the challenge has said it to me at least once. I have not said it. My stock response is to nod my head, shrug my shoulders and say, “Yeah, it’s not gonna be easy.” That is a lie. I say it because not only do I know it’s what people want to hear, but because most people are genuinely trying to be supportive and I don’t want to go off on them with my  ‘I-don’t-do-Christmas’ rant. So I’ll do it here. Read more

Before you walk out the door, consider putting some pants on

Posted on by jess in Fashion Bad | Leave a comment

I have three very firm rules where leggings are concerned:

  1. You may wear leggings with anything that covers your butt (this includes, but is not limited to long tank tops/t-shirts, tunics, dresses and oversized hoodies)
  2. You may wear them as pants if you are under the age of 10. I believe in my day we called them “stretch pants,” they were the cute alternative to sweat pants.
  3. If you are actually doing yoga (or running) you can wear them. You may not leave them on for the rest of the day. When the exercise is done, put on some real pants! Read more

Nick and Di’s* place

Posted on by di in Project, Psycho-Fashion, Read, See | Leave a comment

I was an imaginative child, but so was every kid who was born before Lego came in kits. More than that, I was a strange child surrounded by much older siblings and exposed to Devo and Monty Python far too young. Mum could tell you the story of how I was a fussy eater and the only way she could get me to eat spaghetti was on a towel on the floor under a beach umbrella. I don’t know why this appealed to me but perhaps it had to do with the 1977 Hawaiian sunset wall mural in the living room. It only worked for spaghetti apparently, but it’s proof that at an early age, home decor and my imagination were inextricably linked. The seed was planted like so many Chia-pets of the era, but unlike the clay trolls who sprouted hair within days, my seed would lay dormant for decades. Read more

Style and where to find to it.

One of the most important aspects of the film and Di’s challenge is our attempt to answer some very complicated and multi-faceted questions. Just for instance– the word style. Now there is a slippery and dangerous word.

These shoes are made for helping and that’s just what they’ll do

Posted on by jess in Fashion Good | 4 Comments

This past weekend, I picked up two of my favourite magazines: Glamour and Marie Claire. I like these two magazines because while they have the fashion and beauty I require, they also have inspiring stories and talk about issues for women all over the world. I was a little disappointed to discover that the January issue of both magazines had at least one Kardashian on the cover but I’ve moved past that.

So while I was flipping through Glamour, I came across an article about models and shoes. Now, this wasn’t your usual article about shoes, this was about TOMS. TOMS Shoes was created by Blake Mycoskie and the idea is that for every pair of shoes purchased, the company will give a pair of shoes to a child in need- One for One. These shoes help to prevent diseases transmitted through soil, protect children’s feet from cuts and sores and even allow children to attend school (shoes are often a required part of a school uniform).
