Bringing Shabby Back!

Get it? Cus I’m back, and yeah, sexy was taken, and I figured I may as well stick with what I know. So, yeah, apparently its been a few months, how time passes when you’re growing a Playoff Beard ™ (it’s a Canadian thing, eh)….and it totally failed, as my beloved Denver Broncos are now either on the golf course or hanging with Jessica Simpson in Cabo, but hey, dare to dream! This Lodur beard is my very first facial hair purchase, and while it's not going to win Vain Inc. scrubby beard of the year awards, it's fairly decent…I mean, I’m wearing it, aren’t I? Plus it's named after a Norse God, bad arse enough for you?

Some other Canadian staples at this time of the year are boots and jackets - I always thought it was more of an Eastern Canada thing, but three feet of snow in three weeks can't be wrong… (although it's so, very, very wrong). What better start than a down jacket, in this case the quilting down jacket from M.R.M - jet black, awesome textures, nice prim hood, and sleek enough to wear out after you’ve finished shoveling the driveway for the third time in the same day….not that I’m bitter. After a few months off the grid, I headed straight to Primitive Design, my port in this winter storm. My Riot jeans are incredibly detailed with great cuffs, although I’m generally loath to buy torn up jeans, there was enough going on to make me pause and then spend Dove's lindens greedily. As a bonus, this particular version are called Little Bastards, it left me pining for simpler days growing up with my gram and her foul words of endearment.

These boots were made for walking…maybe all the way to Florida so I can room with Nic until the sun finds its way back to the Northwest (I promise to put the lid back on the toothpaste). The Ashige Heavy boots from Dirty Linx are pretty damned cool, what with the textured flames and metal toe plates - plus I’m a shoe bitch, so yeah, it was going to happen. For men’s boots, they were a little on the small side, which means I had to mod the hell out of them, but nothing like fitting my hair under a hat, so no worries!

I mean, if you want to worry, worry about how the hell I’m going to get the ladder set up in three feet of snow to knock the snow off my fechin satellite dish…any takers? In the meantime, if you need me, I have to go convince Dove to shave the Playoff Beards she’s been growing under her armpits before she starts making me braid them….heh, she’s such a good sport…...I hope.
