Boring, I know, but I have a bunch of my dad's cufflinks that I want to wear more.
That's as good a reason as any!

Not that one needs a good reason to buy new shirts, of course...

I do. I bought two shirts today to replace two others that finally fell apart. I guess it was about time. I've had them since Regan was president.

Talking of historical clothes, I just ordered a couple of books I've been meaning to get for ages and kept forgetting about/putting off/hoping someone would buy them for me:

Fifty Dresses that changed the World

100 Years of Menswear

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Bought a pecan pie, some veal (to make Veal Parmesan), and some sour jelly beans, and wrapping paper. Today is hubby's birthday, so I'm going to make him a special dinner. I will wrap up the cds he wanted, along with the candy. He probably won't appreciate any of it, since he thinks it's somehow immoral to celebrate his birthday, but I'm doing it anyway.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I splurged a little this week and bought myself a copy of Sterling's Gold. And, after having drudged through the "State of the Stargazer" thread in the TNG forum, I went ahead and ordered a movie-era Enterprise-A model that I think I'm going to assemble, paint silver, and place on a pedestal somewhere in my apartment, a la Picard's ready room. Maybe.

A commission of my Transformers corset design, I'll have the real thing in just over a month!



And Ript's tee of today: Ministry of Alien Silly Walks by 6amcrisis... I suppose I'm not supposed to post links the first two weeks but Ript Apparel is one of the best limited-edition tee sites, one tee, new every 24 hours, $10. Love it.

That's cool, though bright yellow is a mighty tough colour to pull off.

Customised corsetry is certainly an intriguing niche! I have a bit of an interest in clothes, so forgive a few questions: is it just the applied design that's unique, or is the garment itself bespoke in terms of it being fitted to your figure? I would assume the latter would be quite vital in terms of ensuring correct fit for something as closely-fitting as a corset.

Also, if it's not too rude a question, how much of an upcharge do you have to pay for bespoke versus ready-to-wear (percentage terms is fine, no need to give absolute figures)? I'm just curious as to how the mark-up compares with the tailored menswear side of custom clothing.

Starbucks white hot chocolate, tall, whole milk, dash of vanilla syrup, extra hot, cream on top. I miss coffee, but this comes a close second.
I don't ever go into Starbucks as a general rule, but that sounds rather delicious, so rule-breaking may be in the offing at some point. Sounds like I'd have to skip lunch that day, though, based on the likely calorie count of that drink!
Just to complete the circle, I actually tried this drink a couple of days ago. It really is rather lush! Thanks for the tip.
