You're Still Fat

Gucci but not Gucci

#Trending For Fall: Dressing in Excess

Ignore your indian summer upper lip sweat. Leave your razor behind. Double-fist that non-fat skinny coconut milk Pumpkin Spice Latte and put on orange-tinted oversized sunnies, because it's time to welcome back woven nylon between our thighs. And officially find out what's in, what's out, what's faux, and what is absolutely no this fall. 

All praise layered polyester.

Gucci = God.

The Italian brand has resurrected our parents' youth, along with their chicest 70s looqs which we have since inherited/stolen, proving that god is real and turquoise jewelry is only acceptable when worn on every finger at once.

Styling tip: sport the largest stone on the finger that matters most. #┌∩┐

Mozzarella lip sticks

Neutral or orange lips will do the trick for day to night (no correlation to Halloween, just coincidentally spooky chic for you). 

What the FAUX.

What the FAUX.

Free the earth-toned bush.

Fur* should drape your shoulders (and even below the belt) for an authentic 70s looq, clothes on or off.

*Unless you're 50 Cent, then we know it's faux.

Camouflage your "jaw-line."

MANE MOMENTS

Keep the hair on your head natural, down, smooth and wavy (think Farrah Fawcett pre-drug OD). We recommend achieving this look with an abundance of dry shampoo and strictly refrain from any hair washing after July 4. Chic for you!

FUPAS FOR ALL!

Jean sais quoi

Denim hasn't died, so continue with a Canadian tuxedo for every casual cocktail event (This one's for you, Jay!) Maybe even try to force your 2k16 body into your mom's 1971 bell bottoms for a vintage flare looq, immediately sacrificing every second serving in hopes of attaining her pre-teen BMI.

May your legs be as wide as Kendall's thigh gap.

Legs up to Olive Garden linguini.

V V Velvet

Velvet's no longer considered underground or over-dressed. So slap on some fuzzy chaps for the office or the train ride home, think of this as the wild west. And consider yourself Lady Velveeta

It's that time of year again. Everything is blooming, including our BMIs, and basics everywhere are shedding that extra fruitcake they emotionally indulged in when their high school hook-up didn't text them back (shriek!). So as hundreds of pounds of Lululemon flocked to the gym, we decided to join in on the loss with our first annual Lard Sale, err... Stoop Sale. 

Between curating looqs, some frenemies showed up with unwanted garments and much-wanted breakfast items. Staying true to character, Caitlin immediately sold a few items to a 64-year-old woman (...and staying true to her beloved family, we won't disclose what those items were).

Over cocktails and donuts, we bartered and bantered on until 2 pm when we decided that no one wanted our never- before-worn-BCBG-$238-with-tags dress. Guess a size 2 really is the new size 18W.

Four hours, three bloody marys, and $32 later, our focus shifted to something more important than profit: a second helping of bagel. Well that and something to address the state of our morning-after tresses: TURBANS.

AND NOW, A TUTORIAL ON TYING YOUR TURBAN:
