A new design house

For a person not into clothes, the manfriend owns a ton of them. Most of them are ratty work clothes that he’s had for years – perfect for his job. Some are really nice haute couture things his sister, who has a swanky design job in Manhattan, sends him. You should see some of this stuff, it’s pretty cool. What’s even cooler is that when the manfriend is sporting designer jeans, ridiculously priced vintage T-shirts, vintage cowboy boots, and one of a kind belts originally crafted for Nikki Sixx he has NO idea what any of that means.

What totally boggles his mind is the on-going trend towards ripped, worn-looking clothes. He jokes that he’s totally in style with all of his stained, ripped, trashed work clothes. When I came home with a newly purchased pair of ripped boyfriend jeans, he just laughed. “You paid for those? I have a buncha jeans like that you coulda had for free!”

Now, couple all of that with a pooch who LOVES to shred shit (old clothes the manfriend gives her, mostly. She’s yet to destroy anything inappropriate) and we’ve struck brilliance! We’ll call it Fido Designs. It’ll just be a matter of giving Stella clothing items – jeans, T-shirts, the like – and letting her do her thing.

The hard part will be knowing when to take things away from her before it’s gone too far.

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
