@lalaland @freelee : This is so, so, so true. You can *almost* always find a cheaper neighborhood within 15-20 minutes of your workplace.
@freelee : It IS amazing. ...Granted, I'm a third-generation native, so I might be biased...
Find your place and love it.
LA is so big, and so diverse, if you don't like your neighborhood or its hang-outs, find another one.
Really, it's lovely here. Welcome home!
@Rosemary McClure : Lesbians should *always* be able to wear suspenders and wifebeaters.
@teaandcakeordeath : Oh, oh, God...it's true. We are the pioneers to the current generation's Robber-Barons.
ARGH THAT IS A TRILBY IT IS NOT A FEDORA THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING EVER OMGOMG!!!!
I haven't seen a single person wear THAT kind of headband and look anything other than silly, and raccoon tails are ridiculous. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this from Elizabethan England, and weren't they known as "flea-catchers"?
D'ya *really* want that hanging out by yer bum?
Oh, and leave the suspenders and newsboys caps alone.
That just makes me so stabby.
@Megan Patterson@facebook @Werewolf Bar Mitzvah: Do we have a secret coterie of Corgi owners on The Hairpin? :)
@travelmugs : It's not Deschanel, actually--it's Tavi Gevison from Fashion Rookie who really made enormous bows a thing.
@glitterary : I'm going to try that one.
@acefreakly : Ooo! I love me some Kiss My Face Peaches lotion! Do give it a test run, as it has AHA in it, and may not be bueno for all skin types. For the record, I have SUPER sensitive skin, breakouts, and occasional dry bits, and I love that this lotion encourages new cell growth. Maybe ask for a sample at Whole Foods?
@rewil: Corn chips? Wow. I wonder if that's like some folks can smell asparagus in their pee and others can't?
I loved "Gorgeous" and "Lovely Jubblies", but was totally nonplussed by "Enzymion". I think it's like so many things--find what works for you and stick with it...until your skin changes.
As mine does.
Every five years.
