There’s eggnog in your hair, Claire!

December 12, 2008

Blog Guy, my mom gave me a huge crystal punch bowl. It’s lovely, but I don’t entertain very much. Should I just sell it?

No! Wear it! Punch bowl hats are going to be THE thing next season, as you can see in these fashion photos taken just yesterday.

They are quite versatile. You can balance them upright, wear them upside-down, or wear them at a jaunty angle.

I had no idea! I did use my bowl for a party last Sunday, so should I wash it first?

I would. Otherwise, old orange rinds and curdled clots of boozy eggnog and dried punch crud will stick to your hair and attract scalp-burrowing insects.

Well honey, it sure wouldn’t be the first time!

Since when have we been getting our fashion from Indonesia? Don’t NY, Milan and Paris have enough bad taste for us all?

In case you hadn’t noticed, Robert has a thing for asian models. Of course, Far Eastern tastelessness is simply more outre than the Western variety, hence more oddly newsworthy.

What?… So showing the different looks you could enjoy on a blustery day is supposed to help convince me on this?

You know…an umbrella hat should be pretty much self-explanatory…even for a model…

I was almost sure this was some high speed photography showing an elephant sneeze just prior to engulfing it’s victim. The calm before the storm.

It seems Asian designers hate women even more than the Western ones… or perhaps Asian women are more willing to be slaves of fashion, no matter how ridiculous?

Wow JL. That was great!

I have to admit that I don’t get it, but then there isn’t much I do get about society today. Maybe that is why I am a fan of filling punch bowls with eggnog and not putting them on my head.
