Bacon scarf

I keep forgetting that the point of a blog is to reference other blogs in a sort of perpetual loop of online postmodern Russian-nesting-doll-style mutual appreciation. So here's my bit: a bacon scarf to make yourself from the neato website Craft Zine. As a vegetarian - no, wait! keep reading! - I'm quite partial to fake meat accessories, like those bacon and eggs bandages and... okay, that's all I can think of. I think it has something to do with the fact that I find meat inherently amusing - not the real thing of course, just the thought of it: pork chops, salami, meatballs, frozen chickens... Don't ask me why, it's just wacky!

LOL Vogue #2

I love fashion mags, don't get me wrong, but they can be completely absurd. Jezebel agrees with me. And everyone loves making fun of 'moddles', non? Even editors of fashion magazines, otherwise we wouldn't get pics like this!

Syle icon: Rosie the Riveter

Everyone loves a feminist, which is why this is a look that I totally recommend for house-spouses, students and people who work from home. Haven't washed your hair this week? Not a problem! Wear a cute scarf and hide those shameful locks! Wear that comfortable pair of overalls or jumpsuit (in a dark, dirt-disguising colour) all day long! Nothing says busy busy! like practical clothes that are ready for anything that your baby/ tutor/ boss can (literally) throw at you. Don't forget to roll up your sleeves to really accentuate your manly biceps. You can do it!

Beauty tip #3: Sleep

This is a beauty tip that I have actually tried. Go to bed and get about 8 hours sleep. When you wake up everything will be a-ok again: the bags under your eyes will be gone, you'll be fresh and alert, and that lecture/ job/ wedding you just slept through was probably not that interesting anyway.

Librarian chic

For whatever reason, sometimes I like to dress like a librarian. Sensible skirt, prim blouse, vest, flat shoes. An obvious accessory would be a book, or maybe glasses. (Which is easy enough if you can already read, but if you wear glasses anyway you probably get mistaken for a librarian all the time. There there.) Wear your hair in a ponytail and, when the moment's right, undo it and shake your hair free in a sensual manner. Work that stereotype! Brainy is in!!!
