“That’s what I like about your generation.  You guys aren’t afraid to wear really stupid things.” — Caitlin’s dad.

Okay, I know I made fun of faux-fur hats when I was in New York; I saw them everywhere, and they look ugly and retarded.  That being said, now that I’m back in San Francisco, and no one wears fur hats, all the sudden, I MUST have one.  I mean, I know it rarely gets cold enough even to see your breath here (actually, more the reason to want one), but mark my words, faux-fur hat is going to be my first “WTF, you’re an idiot. You know you can’t buy groceries this week now, right?” purchase of 2010.

she even has a hipster haircut. also, why is the crotch halfway down her legs?

she can't believe she's wearing those hideous leggings

ok, i kind of want that cardigan. but not shiny pants. she's not a robot.

rocking out, hipster style

"why me god? i just want to wear a ballerina dress and twirl!"

Why am I going to buy a kid $55 glasses that I could buy at a thrift store for $1?

meredith’s take on the leggings:
no, i like shiny leggings for kids
it will put an end to shiny leggings on adults
no one wants to dress like a 5 year old
annnd little kids love shiny shit, they’ll eat shiny leggings up, and then it will be so awful to be sitting next to a kid on the subway wearing the same outfit
and voila! the end of adult shiny leggings
True, but still. I’m not a fan.

me: exactly
kate: and you’re known as the fedora girl
kate: and people expect you to be able to dance. these are things you have to consider
me: sooo many other aspects. thank goodness i have you
kate: what would you do? make an unprepared hat decision
