What To Wear to Fashion Week- A Guide

NYFW (New York Fashion Week) is upon us and OMG (Oh My God) you guys, getting dressed is like super hard. FML, right? Wrong! You do not have to worry your little flower crowned heads one bit because I have provided you with a fail safe wardrobe guide for NYFW. YSW (You’re So Welcome)

Tops:
Though it is legal to go topless in the great Empire State, I still strongly recommend you wear something to cover your ta-tas. A T-shirt is a great choice, as is a tank top,  sweater, or even the top part of a dress. If you’re stuck, ask yourself “Does this have a neck hole and two arm holes?” If the answer is yes, go for it! Congratulations, you are wearing a shirt!

Bottoms:
Again, though NYC is a very fun loving, style minded place, it is also absolutely infested with germs. To avoid butt-to-subway-seat-contact, I recommend wearing a bottom. This could be a skirt, could be pants, or even some bike shorts. Hey, fashion is all about self expression, so feel free to go wild and wear a skort. 

Shoes:
Stepping barefooted into hobo pee is not tres chic, so let’s cover those tootsies with what the Spanish call “Zapatos.” Just slide your lil’ piggies into a flat, heel or fancy Croc and you will find yourself with a spring in your step and another barrier against dysentery.

Purse:

You’re gonna need your stuff. You know, keys, phone, wallet, gummi snacks, chapstick, and emergency gummi snacks. But holding all that stuff is lameskis. Why not find a satchel made of leather or cloth or even plastic and just put your stuff in that? Now your hands are free to put on your hips as you strike a fierce pose. Look at you, you style star!

Real World:

Just wear the weirdest clothing you have, and all of the jewelry you own at once like you are escaping your homeland, and then hope someone discovers you. Simple.

Being a person is hard sometimes.  I think it’s important to reward ourselves for all the little achievements we make each day. So, I made this sticker set. Feel free to print it out and treat yo’ self for each little thing you do that separates us from the animals.

Our last fun fact is about my favorite monster. Is it normal to have a favorite monster? I mean shouldn’t we love them all equally? Anyway…

In 1946, the Bikini was named by Louis Reard who chose the name because he thought the bathing suit was so controversial that it would create shockwaves similar to that of the atomic bomb. (Which they were testing in Bikini Atoll)

Louis Reard is thought to also have been the originator of the phrase “Da bomb.”

Who are these 6% of Americans who do not eat pizza regularly? Can they even truly call themselves American? For that matter, can they truly say they are living? A life without pizza is just surviving, man.

5 Possible Explanations for Why I Have Not Yet Received my Hogwarts Acceptance Letter

Marni’s World:

1. The Environment: Perhaps after Hogwarts sent roughly one thousand letters to The Cupboard Under the Stairs, No. 4 Privet Drive, the Cottage by the Sea, etc. they realized they were well on their way to completely destroying the Forbidden Forest and stopped production of Hogwarts Letters.

2. Pigeon on Owl Violence: It’s quite possible that my handsome Hogwarts owl was attacked by a vindictive New York City bird and was thus prevented from reaching its destination. At the moment of publication, Mr. Featherbottom is my prime suspect.

3. El Nino: It could be that a rogue wind caused by strange, seasonal weather patterns blew my owl irrevocably off course.

4. An Administrative Error: Having a hyphen in my name means things are constantly getting misfiled as apparently a double last name is far too confusing for most to wrap their brains around. I’m sure wizards are just as befuddled as Muggles as whether to put me under K or H.

5. Acceptance to Another Institution: Maybe when I was accepted to a fine institution of higher learning, Hogwarts thought I was spoken for and ceased trying to contact me. I wish they had simply inquired further about the matter because I’m sure Cornell would have been fully onboard with a semester abroad at Hogwarts.

Real World:

Today is the birthday of both J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter. Take some time to celebrate such magical individuals with a stiff drink of butterbeer, a nice chocolate frog, and perhaps try hexing a co-worker for a bit of sport!

Steig Larsson, the author of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo stated in interviews that he based the character of Lisbeth Salander on what he imagined Pippi Longstocking might have been like as a grown up lady. In the third book, Salander has the name “V. Kulla” displayed on the door of her apartment which is an  abbreviation of “Villa Villekulla”, the name of Pippi Longstocking’s house.

Damn, Pippi, you sure grew up real dark.
