Get My Swag On

Sorry to be the bearer of whack-ass news…

Check Out My Swag Tee: $14.90

But if you have to instruct someone to check out your swag, it was never swag in the first place.

What to Wear When you Fall in Love with Channing Tatum

Sometimes the most obvious things in the world can be the most surprising. Like finding a quicker route to work by taking a wrong turn or learning that ratty old sweater you lounge around in at home is the sexiest thing he’s ever seen.

In this way, I guess I had every right to be surprised by the fact that a large majority of you enjoy the pouty lips, soulful eyes and perfectly sculpted abs of Channing Tatum, co-star to Rachel McAdams in this coming Valentine’s Day’s chick flick epic “The Vow.”

In what is sure to be the first guilty pleasure pic of thousands of people in 2012, “The Vow” tells the based on a true story tale of a married couple whose deep and profound love is torn asunder by a case of amnesia. Rachel McAdams’ character awakes from a coma or, something equally soap operish, to discover the cut and beautiful, model turned actor Tatum is her husband.

She then inexplicably objects, speaking nonsense in the trailer like, “I don’t remember you” and “You are devilishly handsome and extremely physical fit. Back up off me!” Okay, maybe she doesn’t say that, but how she musters the gaul to do anything but rip her own clothes off at the news this god amongst men is her surprise husband is beyond me.

Thus, in the spirit of pleasant surprises and full on pleasures of the guilty variety, this Wonderful Wednesday is dedicated to capturing the style of the woman (albeit fictional) so appealing she caused Channing Tatum to full press court her (twice!) in hopes of winning her love.

Strap on your longing looks, ladies. This is Wonderful Wednesday.

Toggle Closure Cardigan: $37.90

Theres something to be said for being comfortable making you feel more sexy. One of the most romantic days I’ve ever experienced was spent at home with my then boyfriend on a rainy day in LA while I was in my period. Both of us spent the entire time slubbing around in the toasty confines on his apartment, me bundled up in a long thrift store cable cardigan, a thin tee and yoga pants. He was never more eager to surf the crimson tide. I’m assuming Channing Tatum feels the same.

Moto-Bomber Jacket: $16.99

Make sure when you put this outfit together you have twinkly, sparkly lights to halo your frame. That way when Channing Tatum somehow, against all odds, despite his strong jaw and no doubt firm, round rump, convinces you to fall in love with him again the moment will be all the more magical.

V-neck Tee: $5.90

Floral Cuffed Sleeve Top: $22.80

Wearing something with flowers is key to this moment in the seduction of you by Channing Tatum. Mainly because when he comes rushing into your art studio, or sculpting class, or cheese curdling factory or wherever the Hell they are, he will be subconsciously motivated to pollinate your flower as he takes you on the cool, stone floor.

Forever 21, Wonderful.

Facebook Debate

HEY YOU! You like to argue, right?
PERFECT!
We’re having a good old fashioned debate on Facebook about whether or not Forever 21 selling a knock-off  what everyone seems to think is a  Kurt Cobain original (it isn’t – the design is courtesy of the band Flipper) is unethical and sleazy or just good business sense as usual.
As reported on Vol. 1 Brooklyn, the tee was a product of Cobain’s own magic marker artwork. They however neglect to mention that while Forever 21 was selling the item for $16.90 online (it sold out since this morning when the post went up) the music merch online retailer Worn Free also sells the licensed product, only they sell it for a whopping $45.
Throw in your 2 cents on WTForever 21′s Facebook page. You won’t believe which way the conversation is leaning.

Hipster Tee Catastrophe

In what I’m entirely convinced is an effort to net cash from the coveted hipster boi consumer segment, Forever 21 has rolled out what is quite possibly the douchiest fucking tee I have ever laid my poor, puffy, red eyes on.

Classic Tee with Scarf: $18.90

It’s a slim cut tee with a skinny scarf ATTACHED to it. They might as well call it the “I’m sure you’ve never heard of this band I love. They’re pretty obscure” tee.

All that’s missing now is a pair of dick strangling jeans and a Spock haircut, along with a sleeve of tattoos that hold absolutely no significance to you what so ever. Basically, this tee is the main ingredient in the Privileged Hipster emergency kit.

I’ll bet that scarf only drinks fair trade coffee, too.

Wizard of Derp

This is not the loveable character from the classic we all know.

It’s a straight up incident of mass manufactured derp.

Thanks for ruining my childhood memory, Lord of the Dance.

Price: $14.90

Forever 21, WTF?
