Red Valentino Autumn/Winter 2013 Pret a Porter

Valentino is known the world over for his stunning and elegant dresses, most often seen on the bodies of the rich and celebrities alike. But unless you have the ability to spend several thousand clams on a size 2 dress you will never own Valentino. You may never even see Valentino in real life. You may never even be in the room as an authentic Valentino. Who the hell do you think you are anyway??? 
Anyway Valentino released a new line called RED, and its a more contemporary (read: young) , slightly less expensive collection than it’s namesake. It’s full of what I personally love, HARD FEMME, yeah you heard me. I’m making this a thing people. Hold onto your butts! A-line skirts, baby doll dresses, ankle socks with kitten heels, lace, statement necklaces, silk blouses oh yeah you know whats up. Hard Femme is going to be the new thing, combining the hardness of past seasons with spikes, leather jackets, and metallics with the soft femininity of flirty knee length dresses, bouffant hair dos and pearl earrings. Feast your eyes on the fairytale fantasy of this years Red collection. 

 

Forever 21 Bats & Cats Collection

Now regardless of your feelings about the clothing company Forever21, “Bats & Cats”, the latest collection from the fast fashion brand is kinda exciting.
Now lets do the math. Comic books = good. Cheap fashionable clothes = good. Comic + cheap fashionable clothes = good. Got it? Good!
I’m going to be honest. I am so poor right now. I’ve been out of a job for 5 months and I’m at the point that I have to ask my family for help, I’ve been looking for work and I’m starting to get desperate especially now that I see this awesome shit.

I love Batman, but more than anything, I love Catwoman. I love the way that she does her own thing and if that involves being morally ambiguous than so be it. She loves jewelry and being inappropriately sexual towards Batman. She is representative of a woman who exist in a societal structure that is set against her so she, in turn, makes her own rules. When I was 9, I had to write an essay about who I wanted to be and I wrote that I wanted to be Catwoman, I was given an F and told to write it again. True story.
Back to the clothes. This collection is predominately themed after Catwoman but with the recognizable bat symbols sprinkled in there, to be polite but we know it’s all about the Cat. 
My favorite pieces are:

Standout Bat Baseball Cap – $10.80USD

Batty Babe Faux Leather Backpack – $32.80

Spot-On Batman Snapback – $11.80

Batman Leggings – $15.80USD

Spotlight Nail Set – $7.80 USD

Glam Girl Batman Ring – $6.80 USD

Shredded Bat Sweater – $22.80 USD

Bold Cat-eye Sunglasses – $5.80 USD

Catty Cropped Sweater – $22.80 USD

Standout Meow Baseball Cap – $10.80 USD

Street Chic Faux Leather Baseball Cap – $9.80 USD
Round Wings Sunglasses – $5.80 USD 
That being said, I really just want everything in this line. No shame. I love it and resent the fact that I have no money. Hopefully this will be motivation for me to search even harder! Wish me luck! 

When Your Vagina is Sick

Georgia O’ Keeffe – “Flower of Life II”

I’ve got 99 problems and they all deal with my vagina.
I’ve got to keep her happy all the time, wear the right clothes, buy the right undies, use the right soap, or no soap at all, drink so much water, drink enough cranberry juice, eat yogurt, maintain my PH balance, not wear thongs, pantyhose, leggings, jeggings, or anything else that might restrict her access to air. Not wear underwear while sleeping. Use the right lubricant, or the right condoms. Masturbate with the right vibrator made out of the right materials. My pussy is a demanding cunt. 
But eventually no matter how long I maintain this dance I always… ALWAYS get a yeast infection. 
My gynecologist sneers at me with her arrogant med school educated face and says to me “Are you taking showers? Remember to always wipe front to back!”. I want to hop up in her face and ask her if she thinks I just got this thing yesterday. 
“Yes bitch, thank you! I was using used toilet paper, I found on the ground up until today, I’ll rectify that immediately!” 
Georgia O’Keeffe – “Bella Donna”
But the fact is, that most women get or have gotten some sort of vaginal infection. Our pussies are delicate, porous membranes enveloped between juicy thighs and dammit it gets hot in there sometime! What are we supposed to do? Sit on fans all day? 
Actually.
That would probably be pretty awesome. Unless you suffer from vaginal dryness. In that case nevermind. 
A vaginal infection is defined by WebMD as: ” a medical term used to describe various conditions that cause infection or inflammation of the vagina. Vulvovaginitis refers to inflammation of both the vagina and vulva (the external female genitals). These conditions can result from a vaginal infection caused by organisms such as bacteria, yeast, or viruses, as well as by irritations from chemicals in creams, sprays, or even clothing that is in contact with this area. In some cases, vaginitis results from organisms that are passed between sexual partners.”
Which basically means you can get it from anything, infections, virus, sex, antibiotics, clothing, the wrong soap or products being used on it. All beavers have certain levels of bacteria and maintaining those levels are fucking tricky and can be completely thrown off by anything. My mom used to make me drink cranberry juice all the time, when she’d wash my nasty drawers in high school, because it was supposed to maintain a healthy clam. 
Okay so we’ve established you are not gross, dirty, nasty, or a bad person because you occasionally or regularly (I get them around my period) because getting them is completely normal.
Unless.
If you get them so much that you are uncomfortable all the time, it hurts to have sex, it hurts to pee, you have a noticeable smell (and everyone else notices your smell) and you are being affected everyday of your life. In that case you NEED TO SEE A DOCTOR. Girl don’t fuck with your love taco okay??? Get that baby some help!
Georgia O’Keeffe – “Inside Red Canna” 

How do you know you have some sort of infection?
  • Do you notice a thick, white or yellow discharge coming from your vagina? Does it look like cottage cheese?
  • Is your poonannie itchy? Like really itchy, and red or inflammed?
  • Are you experiencing pain? A problem peeing or you feel like there is something stuck up inside of your uretha? Preventing you from peeing?
  • Is it uncomfortable when you have sex? 
If its a yes to all of these, you may have an infection. BUT, sometimes you are infected and you have none of these symptoms (like wtf?? right??) in that case, I don’t know how’d you know, but you should take care of it anyway. 
So there are many types of infections but the most common are: yeast infections, bacterial infections, Trichomoniasis (an STD), Chlamydia, viral infections, and non infectious. For the sake of time we will focus on yeast infections.
Yeast infections are caused by a type of fungus that lives in your coochie, your mouth, and your guts, of both men and women. When the fungus gets out of control you have a yeast infection.
Somethings that could increase the chance of these bastards taking over your downtown, is antibiotic treatmeants, pregancy, diabetes, taking birth control pills, thyroid issues, cortoisteroid treatment, or a disorder that affects your immune system.
They can be treated easily with over-the-counter medications like:
Vagisil
or Monistat
That are available at most grocery stores and pharmacies. They come in creams or weird egg suppository things that make me think I’m hatching an egg in reverse.
Now here’s where things get stupid. I’ve heard this a million times. Here’s what WebMD has to say about how to prevent yeast infections, with my own hilarious thoughts.
To prevent yeast infections, you should: 

  •  Wear loose clothing made from natural fibers (cotton, linen, silk). Um like 90% of the clothes sold in America is some plastic cotton/polyester fabric so I don’t know if thats possible. Plus I live in leggings and tights, aint giving that up.
  • Avoid wearing tight pants. See above. What are we hippies?
  • Don’t douche. (Douching can kill bacteria that control fungus.) Okay done.
  • Limit the use of feminine deodorant. Limit the use of deodorant tampons or pads to the times when you need them. You got it.
  • Change out of wet clothing, especially bathing suits, as soon as you can. Who doesn’t do this? Are people really just lounging around in sticky swimsuits all day? 
  • Avoid frequent hot tub baths. Okay if I had a hot tub I’d be in that asshole all day.
  • Wash underwear in hot water. 99% of my clothes are black, do you know what hot water does to black clothes? Do you know how expensive hot water is?
  • Eat a well-balanced diet. Don’t tell me what to do.
  • Eat yogurt. Who are you Jamie Lee Curtis?
  • If you have diabetes, keep your blood sugar level as close to normal as possible. Like duh. 
Georgia O’Keeffe – “Light of Iris”

So however you  manage to do all those things at all times, good for you, and for the rest of us keep, those things in mind but when you do get an infection, don’t freak. You’re okay and you’re gonna be okay.
