Dog Fur

I recently read an article... ok, that's a lie. I read the title of an article... Well actually, I read the title of the article, but I don't actually remember exactly what it was. It basically said "can you be in fashion and still be attractive to men" but since it was a title, it was a lot shorter than that. You know?

For example, please read the following conversation between myself and H, and you will understand.

Viv: I kinda want a fur vest.
H: A fur vest? Like a cave woman? Like dog fur?
Viv: Um, no Hon, like we have see everywhere, in every store window. They are suuuper hot.
H: Looks like a dog. Like a shaggy dog. You will need to brush it.
Viv: (hopeless, blank stare into space)

*Please see below the fur vests that DO NOT look like dog fur, and that, alas, Viv will never have because she loves H.

No dog fur was used in the making of these vests or this blog post.



Christmas is over. The only good part of that statement is that we no longer have to witness people wearing Holiday themed sweaters and earrings and socks and headbands and other ridiculous attire. Why do you do this to yourselves? Why do you do this to your children? Why do you decorate yourself like a friggin Christmas tree, with tinsel and bobbles and plastic candy canes dangling from your body... Do you want us to also put gifts under your dress as well? Maybe a star or an angel on top of your head? That would be really pretty. Sheesh.
How about, wear normal clothes. Please.

Acceptable Holiday Attire. by Vivianne H. Park
Sweaters: wrap, cardigans, toggle front, bead embellished
Red and white stripes (age 10 and under ONLY)
Fur (faux is acceptable- and please do not throw paint)
Red, Black, Charcoal, Jewel tones, Winter white

Unacceptable Holiday Attire:
Reindeer horns (unless you are yard art)
Holiday jewelry (especially those that flash or repeatedly play Deck The Halls)
Elf suits (unless you are paid to wear one)
Sweaters or sweatshirts with the following scenes:
-wolves in snow, wearing Santa hats.
-Santa in his sleigh soaring through the starry sky, shouting "Ho Ho Ho"
-Family of cats gathered around the table, enjoying a Christmas turkey dinner. That is disgusting, don't you think?
-Santa's ass, squeezing into a fireplace, with presents and soot scattered all about someone's living room.

Please note.
Thanks, and Happy Holidays.


Vivi Loves Shopping: Party Dresses

I have always loved shopping. Ever since I was like... born. My Grammy STILL takes me, yes still, and I am too old for my Grammy to take me shopping. ;)

"Vivi Loves Shopping" will be a reoccurring post of my latest obsession, or whatever I think I need that week... obsession is a pretty strong word. Suggestions are welcome - and if there is something you are shopping for, please let me know! I am happy to help, but if you ask me for my opinion, please know that I will give it honestly!

Party Dresses!
What a great category to begin with. Who doesn't love a party dress for the Holiday season! I wish I could wear a party dress every friggin day of the year though. I am not joking. Not one bit.

While shopping this week, I noticed a few specific trends:
Jewel tones (common for the Holiday season!)
Metallic coloring and embellishment
Asymmetric silhouettes
Full skirts
Back detail

Enough talking. Lets shop.
