Why the redaction? Anaïs Nïn ïs qualïty.

(Okay, so I mainly used this post as a vehicle for umlaut abuse.)


the retraction b/c so many people here are so inexperienced and have so many questions. While her writing is AMAZING, especially for her time period, most of it is pretty jacked up because it is, in essence autobiographical. She lead a pretty fucked up life and it would be possibly a little damaging for innocent minds to read her stories as reference to eroticism. (Then again, reading The Delta of Venus most people might not know that and it would make little difference in their minds.)

strange thought: it feels like my hands are no longer attached to my arms. i honestly have no idea how i'm managing to type like this. 25 hours awake is sissy stuff but i think with the constant and massive loss of blood coupled with the deprivation it is time to retire for the night.

that might have been two sentences, or almost two sentences. i'm not sure right now.

Ideas, thoughts, suggestions?

if someone told you to dress semi professional, tell them you're dressing like a semi professional musucian and wear whatever the fuck you want.

Probably something like a bad idea.

However.

Nice jeans with a cute (read: no words, pictures or anything, but a nice cut or with some lace) top and a clean-cut jacket can be very professional, especially if its just an office job type thing.

Anthropologie for the win. Wet seal tends towards the teenage trends from what I saw on the website, but maybe it's easier to find stuff in the store? I only need to worry about the "semi professional" attire for the next 6-8 months. The goal is to have my own business up and running in 6 months, and then I can have more freedom with what I wear. Anthropologie has a lot of things I would wear outside of the office so it seems like a good choice.

I tried to find stuff at Kohl's, but the clothes racks were so close together I couldn't navigate through the stuff. Seriously, there wasn't even room to turn around.

Jeans are not professional in any office setting. They may be permissible, appropriate, hunky-dory, and not-unprofessional, but no one ever looks at a person of either (or any) gender and thinks about how professional they look in their jeans.

In a professional setting jeans are a no-no. That is why I said semi professional. I work in a construction office, jeans are fine. Plus, my ass looks good in jeans, so I don't think any of the guys at the construction office are going to protest my choice of pants.

I believe in Steve Jobs case "motherfuking" translates roughly to "I have more motherfucking money then (almost) motherfucking everyone. I have the ipod and the iphone. I will wear motherfucking jeans if I want to."

Newport News has some really cute business-y things that aren't too old ladyish and are pretty reasonably priced. Victoria's Secret does as well, although they're a little more spendy. Old Navy and Gap actually have the best-fitting pants (for me) that I've ever found anywhere, and they have business-attire styles usually without looking too teenish, depending on what you wear on top.

Forever 21 can pull off semi-professional well. You do have to sort through the teeny things though. Other than that, small local boutiques (if you can find them) are the way to go.

Less terrorism, more girly bits? Not only is that an accurate description of Muslim countries, but it's also damn fine everywhere else.

I like it! >.> <.< You know what I mean.

...Hmmm...this reminds me of that global orgasm for peace thing.

...To show for peace... or not to... that is the perverted question.

Why's there no question mark. Do you not need a question mark if it's a question, or has grammar suddenly changed... I don't actually care about question marks, but someone has to pretend they do, do they not!

Just to add to kilgore trout's question about fashion:

I have the perfect outfit for you, which I own and wore today. I am only 16, but seriously, I felt like I should have been taking calls for some rich lawyer type or something. I dunno.

Anyways, I got these fabulous wide leg pants at Bluenotes for $20 CDN which have a purpley tinge to them without being purple, and are actually grey, and they have sort of a plaid pattern on them, which is supposed to be fashionable for fall (or so I've heard).

Then, for the top, it was this shirt from Boathouse (trendy teen store (very scene usually) but has some really nice clothes) that was a deep purple, so it matched the pants well what with the hint of purple in them. It was also $20 CDN. The sleeves of the shirt ended an inch or two above my elbows, and it was tight on the sleeves, and fitting on the body. It also had sort of a turtle neck, except looser.

It was fabulous, but I ended up baking banana bread (someone posted a fantastic recipe on here? Thank you, if you read this. It's amazing.) instead of going out when my friend cancelled on me for family related reasons.

Anyways, I think this would work for you pretty well. I don't know what you look like or anything, but I'm a bigger girl (size large, usually) and this flattered me really well. And if you're skinny, you're lucky! Anything looks good on a skinny girl (IMO).

EDIT:

justbecause wrote:I'm not sure about 'more girly bits,' though. I now have less girly bits (this is a good thing, except for the Dreaded Bra Shopping >_< ).


If you live near a Loblaws or a grocery store that sells Joe clothing, check out their bras. They're wonderful. And only $10!

If you live in somewhere that is not in Ontario or wherever else Loblaws exists, then I pity you.

Edit again: The former edit may not make sense in some parts. I'm not sure.

Actually... it was a grammatical nightmare, but not because it lacked a question mark, but because it was formed incorrectly, I didn't mark off what part was the question I was making the statement about.

If you didn't understand me though, too bad for you.

@justbecause: Less girly bits?

@Kawa: We are well aware of that, you are just as sane as any of us (crazy people) can be.

:roll: That's nothing to worry about, and definitely more fun to show, as at least support isn't a problem. And... brassieres are one of many girl-specific things that have been half-arsed until they can't be any worse.

Also, concerning looking plaid, I'm with Bakemaster on the jeans point. Fuck jeans. Dresses and skirts are nice for women.
