The Black Hatter's Guide to Ghetto Hip/Urban Chic Hipness*
If you're sponsoring, I'm game. Otherwise it's Century 21 (if you're lucky) and Land's End (if you're me).
try JCrew for cheap, preppy chic! Or Banana Republic men (when they're on sale)!Thanks for the linkage!
Ahh, too much effort.
But the guys aren't wearing hats.
The top guy kind of dresses like one of my friend's husbands.
ALSO I like how prolifically you've been posting lately.
I'm sorry, I'm going to cough and die. JCrew is cheap???
JCrew is definitely a lot cheaper than Hugo Boss!
Try thrift shops, you'd be amazed at the awesome stuff you can find there...not that I would know...
I'm still not convinced of the necessity of finding good-looking clothing.
In yeshiva, it's not necessary, but out in the real world when you're not surrounded by only boys (or not even only Jews!)...
No Shliach was ever hurt by the fact that he was too unworldly, but being too worldly...
Ah maybe we're talking about two different things. I'm talking about having presentable clean well-fitting clothing.
Actually I'm probably not talking about the same thing as anyone here. SCRATCH IT.
Clean and presentable is one thing. Hot is another.What are you talking about?
Well if you're clean and presentable and in the process hot who are you to complain?(We're speaking in hypotheticals here).
There's a difference between trying and natural.(No other thought even entered my mind.)
Yeah metro people creep me out. I guess we should end this conversation before it becomes more banal, unless that is a reason to continue.
What would this little corner of the blogospehere be without banal?
Good point. So did you ever find any shoes?
No. More's the pity.
Why not? Seriously your size doesn't exist?
I've been too busy in yeshiva to go shopping. Maybe some day I'll get around to it.
Okay. Don't get defensive about being in yeshiva. We all get it. You're in yeshiva. You're learning. You're busying.I was going to posit an alternative theory.
Your initial search was unsuccessful due to the fact you have a common shoe size, thus all shoes in your size are owned already.
THAT IS A BRILLIANT THEORY!
Thus, don't bother ever shopping for shoes again. Ever. Unless you can get your feet to grow or shrink.
If a bit depressing...
Oh come on. You're a boy. Boys grow until they're 25. There is hope yet. Don't fret my shoeless little dear.
Hope! That's all I ask for, Hope! That's all I need, give me some Hope!...
Well uh, your redeemer is here. There is hope!
You're Jesus or something?
Well, I am pretty fabulous.
So when's the crucifixion?
Well in Russian lit today our fearless professor said "Try and say something bad about Nobakov, you'll get crucified."
And you responded how?
It was 2:25 PM or so AKA NAP TIME. I don't say anything in that class. I just fight to stay away.
Sounds about right. My naptime is every two hours for ten hours, plus a large coffe at 4:00, which is when my chavrusa and I have finished bs'in and would rather sleep than talk.
Yeah 12-5:30 is considered naptime on my calendar. Lucky for me, three out of my four classes this semester occur during these hours.
Sorry, that would be for ten minutes.This is a good thing?
No, it's lame. Last semester I managed my schedule that all of my classes minus one lecture ended by noon. It was fabulous. (Granted 8 am labs were a bit of a pain).
So you're saying it's not a good thing to sleep during class?
Well, in large lectures it's fine. Two of the three classes I have during those hours are small seminars, in which if you don't participate and talk you don't get full points.
Yeah it's lame. There are only FOURTEEN people in my Russian lit seminar and I have absolutely nothing to say. So I can't even pretend that I do but other people keep me from talking. Which means I've got to start faking intelligence asap. Lame.
You can't think of anything to say? What do they talk about?
So we talked about the disadvantages of translation. THEN we had to take four translations of Eugene Ogenin's famous poem thing and try and find the original by comparing translations. So my group had nothing. Yep. Nothing.Then we talked about how the writers created Russian to write literature in Russian and the snit fits that ensued between the two camps. The Westernizers and the Slavophiles. Probably would be interesting if it wasn't forced discourse and nap time.
And once again I am able to confidently predict, "Thus endeth the conversation".
So your crystal ball is working.
Not if I respond to this it isn't.
there is a point to looking good. and believe me, there are people put off by the whole crushed hat/bad sheitel syndrome. also - SHOUT OUT TO SARABONNE FOR MENTIONING THRIFT SHOPS!!
There's a difference between dirty and crushed.
Cheerio-well someones gotta say it!TRS-your crystal ball is broken.
