There are reasons why certain items of clothing or types of materials aren't to be worn during specific seasons. We generally don't wear linen come Fall because it's a light, breezy, screams-summery fabric and furthermore, it wrinkles! We can't layer to stay warm without looking like a Sharpey, or Hugh Hefner's balls (sorry, I couldn't think of a better simile).

That being said, there are also Fall fabrics we should think about avoiding come summer, like leather. Have you ever tried to wear a tight leather skirt in the middle of July? Related: have you ever heard the term "swass"? It's a mash-up, if you will, of sweaty-ass. Swass is why you don't wear a leather skirt in the middle of July. Swass is what makes that leather skirt feel smaller and smaller as the day goes on, with every bead of it trickling down your buttcrack. Swass is what drives up our dry-cleaning bills with necessity after every wear. Swass, above all, is not our friend.

The point of all this talk? As per usual... that's hard to decipher. I mean, I wore this outfit and had a sweaty butt because it was hotter than the devil's diarrhea outside, am still all over that muscle tank I made in my last post and want you to go make right meow, and uh, I guess that's about it.

But do you know what else I did recently that made my ass all sweaty? I interviewed Mark Salling and Shenae Grimes yesterday at the Express store opening in Vancouver yesterday. More on this soon.
Happy Friday y'alls! See ya on Monz.
