A Question Concerning Socks: Is Two Colours Enough?

November 20, 2009


I own many socks. Many, many socks. I don’t like to do laundry and I hate wearing socks more than once a day. In fact, if I even take my socks off, I am loathe to put the same pair on again. Because I don’t like wearing socks, I take them off whenever I can. […]

They Are Women Hear Them Roar: So Long As They Dress, Act, And Consume Like Me

October 7, 2009


I am always perplexed by the fact that the question of what a woman should or should not wear remains a hotly contested battle ground, especially among women. I’ve been struggling to find a way to articulate this confusion and then the quick-witted Adorkeable Thespian tweeted me this very funny Sarah Haskins clip: I enjoyed this […]

Duck, Duck, Purse: Calling A Spade A Spade

July 21, 2009


Every once and a while I make an important and unexpected discovery about myself. Sometimes, it comes in the still dark of a lonely night. Sometimes, it comes in the midst of the warm glow of sunny interaction. How or why these moments come, I don’t know, but come they do; and when they do, […]

I discovered a new flavour of shoe! What flavours remain to be discovered?

May 29, 2009


Up until first communion, I owned and wore one pair of sneakers / winter boots. I wore them everyday, in every circumstance, until they fell apart. In order to ingest God for the first time, a suit was bought and the concept of “dress shoes” entered my life. The concept didn’t have too much discernible affect in the […]

May 15, 2009


The good ol’ PPBP put in a request for a fashion-focussed post and thoughtfully suggested the question: “What is your uniform?” I can’t say no to my biggest fan and she was even crafty enough to launch the request via Twitter, knowing that I am a social media junkie and would be compelled to encourage […]

Two Songs That Ruined My Understanding of What Women Want: “You’re So Vain” and “The Sweater”

May 13, 2009


I humbly submit that two songs, one by Meryn Cadell and one by Carly Simon, are directly responsible for my lifelong misunderstanding of what most women really want and admire in a man. Perhaps, I should sue? If you were similarly damaged, maybe we could start a class action suit? I am sure these songs affected both […]

A Question of Fashion: How Many Winter Coats Do You Have?

April 17, 2009


I grew up in Ottawa. In Ottawa, it gets very very cold — like -30 cold. And it snows. A lot. And it does this for a long long time. Accordingly, for many months out of the year, everyone wears a big heavy “winter coat” — as I have always called it. While I was […]
