Beauty has no expiration date.

21 Apr

Clothing company American Apparel is defiantly known for pushing some limits in regards to their advertising. Honestly, I find that most of the ads look like soft core porn. It’s not a website you can browse from at work as your co-workers will raise their eyebrows at you.

Guys, i’m just buying some socks.”

This is seriously a screen shot from the website.  I can’t make this up.  Here, don’t believe me or think I’m some kind of dirt ball. OR maybe you are the dirt ball and just want to see more.  Well, go here.

Anywho.  They now how a 62 year old model.  To me, this is awesome.  I really hope I’m this confident and sexy at age 62.

Jacky O’Shaughnessy says she just made “a conscious choice” not to accept certain limitations and stereotypes that are attached to women of a certain age. MAD PROPS.

Cold Weather Gear!

6 Jan

While on the topic of the insane winter chill occurring in Chicago-

In November I was traveling in NYC and stopped by the Uniqlo store in Soho.  Uniqlo makes some of the BEST cold weather gear – at affordable prices.

Their HeatTech line is excellent for creating a base layer when dealing with extreme weather.  I have a couple tank tops, leggings and tights and I have been living in them this winter.

The fabric is moisture wicking and retains body heat.  I guess the oils they weave into the fibers actually work with your own perspiration to help warm you.  Sounds expensive right?  Nope.   The socks are amazing.  They work almost as well as my incredibly thick SmartWool socks and feel like any normal, thin crew sock.  It’s space age magic! 

The Heattech leggings and tights are thin.  The leggings are see-thru so don’t expect them to cover your bum.  They are SUPER soft and cozy.  Great for wearing under pants or under skirts.

Thanks to Uniqlo, I now own the best leggings I have ever owned (aside from Black Milk, but that’s Apples to Oranges.) The Uniqlo Legging Pants are freaking amazing.  They look like jeans, but you can go to an all-you-can-eat Brazilian Steak House and still be comfortable wearing them after gorging yourself.  Trust me.  I know things.  Also, they are under $20.Image
