In Defense of Vegetarianism, Week #1

This is the first installment of "In defense of Vegetarianism". When ig'nant rednecks or frat boys start talkin shit, these responses will shut 'em up

Ignorant Meat Eater: "I eat meat because I like how it tastes"

Intelligent and Classy Vegetarian: "Well, pedophiles like 10 year old boys but does that make it right?"

Lady Chavez

Fashion according to Fluffgirl

Clothing is art. Given the infinite possibilities of a raspberry Cotton Spandex Jersey Double U-Neck Dress, the effect of said dress is exponential. Lifestyle is clothing. Under stress, what is our preferential garb? Do our choices preclude the giddiness felt while eyeing the white/gold/ burgundy Stripe Thigh-high Socks? Or is it a mixture of Baby Thermal Hot Short with Baby Rib Camisole? Regardless, one would be na├»ve to forget that fashion is lifestyle. Keeping abreast of current fashion fads and foibles may require the purchase of a Blackberry – or you could just buy a Unisex Velour Track Jacket and be done with it.

Fable has it that a savvy shopper shows no signs of weakness or wavering when confronted with sale-priced merchandise- yet I say to you: there couldn't be a more difficult decision when it comes down to a gold Lame Suspender Swimsuit and a Pique Cross Front Jumper in Sea Foam. I'll take them both!

I am fashion. Fashion embodies an individual's creativity and showcases one's ability to manipulate apparel in a way that flatters him or her. Fashion manipulation is not an easy task, but one which is greatly rewarded. It's what gets me up in the morning even when my body is saying no…..even when it seems like I should just call in sick. I'll tell you what makes it a whole lot easier for me, though- my Polyester Microfiber Cross-Front Dress in purple. Its all a girl needs to conquer the world.
