Boston Terriers, Bacon & Betsey Johnson: My Top 3 ModCloth Holiday Gift Guide Picks for the Bold Fat Girl
As always I only promo stuff I absolutely and genuinely lurve! This post is all about the stuff I desire from the Modcloth Holiday Gift Guide! This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.
After two hellish days (including getting $1100 taken from my bank account by the person standing behind me at the ATM day before yesterday!), the darkdark clouds of sorrow parted and a little ray of dog-patterned sunshine popped right through. Right into my inbox. I literally got an email today at 7:18am that THIS DRESS covered in friggin' boston terriers and bedecked with a pussy bow (girl!!!) was in stock in my size and it was mine by 7:19am.
So, the ModCloth Holiday Gift Guide. Let's talk about it. It has stuff for lady people, stuff for dudes, sparkly shoes, and plenty 'o' things covered in food/cats. The Boston Found Dress is obvz my top pick. But here are two other favs.
So obviously this here bacon scarf is a pick for the more irreverent among us. It's tres gauche to announce to the world that you love fatty meats so much that you're wearing a crocheted set of bacon and eggs around your throat. And that's why I love it! Also, Ron Swanson would totally approve.
Now... this HERE is the piece de resistance! Girl, when I saw this Betsey Johnson Now You're Chalking purse I immediately saw its potential for:
(1) writing rude and/or incendiary political statements
(3) drawing pictures of cats
I could go on, but I've got to go get a cronut and continue some prep for BABECAMP! But happy holiday huntings, girl.
