Is it time to bring back the mullet…business at the front and party out Â back?
The loyal Whale Army and fashionistas everywhere have been reading my posts this week on the Green Fashion WatchÂ and Metiria Turei’s questionable attempts at smartening herself up by paying thousands and thousands of dollars for designer clothes from an extremely posh Auckland designer called Adrienne Winkelmann.
Studying translations of Roman literature, Ms. Stephens says, she realized the Latin term “acus” was probably being misunderstood in the context of hairdressing. Acus has several meanings including a “single-prong hairpin” or “needle and thread,” she says. Translators generally went with “hairpin.”
The single-prong pins couldn’t have held the intricate styles in place. But a needle and thread could. It backed up her hair hypothesis.
As a proper bloke who prefers RM Williams boots to shoes, and wearing hunting boots as often as I can I fail to properly understand why women wear high heals…until now:
Ask a woman why she endures the awkwardness and discomfort, and sheâ€™ll probably respond, â€śThey make me look, and feel, more attractive.â€ťÂ Newly published researchÂ suggests this perception is accurate, but perhaps not for the reason youâ€™d expect.
Itâ€™s not the artificially increased height that turns heads. Rather, itâ€™s how such footwear changes the mechanics of a womanâ€™s gait.
â€śHigh heels may exaggerate the sex-specific aspects of the female walk,â€ť a University of Portsmouth research team led by psychologistÂ Paul Morrisreports in the journalÂ Evolution and Human Behavior. While noting that preference in footwear is based in part on culture norms, they argue the enduring popularity of high-heeled shoes suggest their fundamental appeal stems from a deeper impulse.
Len Brown was down at NZ Fashion Week today when a model went for a skate…soÂ desperateÂ for attention he is he fair leapt from his seat to save her. Fortunately one of my tipsters was there to catch the event.
It is pretty embarrassing falling over in the first place but even worse being rescued by the sneaky Len Brown…who is a couple of inches shorter than the model. Here he is going for the grope.
The AUSA executive protests “borrowing to live”.
Unfortunately one fool, Sam Bookman, forgets to take off expensive Calvin Klein underwear while doing so.
Perhaps should stop buying heinous overpriced undies if he can’t afford basics.
I have noticed that some younger typically hipster fools about are into those big hole ear piercings…it took about bit of research but I have found out that they are pofficially called “flesh tunnels” or scalpelling.
ScalpellingÂ is aÂ body artÂ procedure similar toÂ body piercingÂ for the creation of decorative perforations through the skin and other body tissue, and is most commonly used as a replacement for or enhancement ofÂ ear piercing. Whereas piercing is typically performed with a hollow piercing needle or anÂ ear piercing instrument, scalpelling is performed by using aÂ scalpelÂ to cut a slit into the skin. UnlikeÂ dermal punching, no flesh is removed.Â The technique can immediately produce holes with a larger diameter than can be achieved by piercing. This is a more rapid means of accommodating largerÂ gaugeÂ jewellery thanÂ stretching, a technique whereby piercings are enlarged by inserting gradually larger jewellery. Scalpelling is performed to quickly achieve a large-gauge piercing, whenÂ scar tissueÂ is preventing further stretching, if tissue has thinned to the point where further stretching could cause it to break, or to combine two closely placed piercings into one hole.
I simply don’t get it…what is the point? What sort of fool does this?
