I'm simply appalled by how many of you claimed to be completely clueless about and terrified of lipstick yesterday. Seriously? I am typically the last person on earth to jump on board with a trend. And since lipstick has been a trend for like...200 years or something...I really, really did not think that there were this many other adult earthlings left walking around with naked lips. Apparently I was wrong. Lots of you asked for a post about lipstick/lipstick wearing...don't worry, nothing would thrill my heart more. Clearly we are living in a world completely devoid of fashion magazines, beauty blogs, and Pinterest...so I can see how you'd need me, who started wearing lipstick about 6 months ago and knows about 3 brands, to guide you. ;) Kidding! But yes, a comprehensive guide to the little I know about lipstick will be coming your way. But not today.
So yesterday I mentioned that you should build up your 'expert' reputation about something and become people's go-to person on the topic. One of my friends provided a perfect example of how awesome that can be later in the day. I'm not sure whether she'd read my post or not, but I mean...either way, she had a conundrum and she knew who to contact! And it seriously made me laugh. Please observe:
(The first picture is a full-sized screenshot of the screenshot she originally sent me, which is obviously way too tiny to see in the screenshot of our ensuing texts.) (Did I use the word 'screenshot' enough yet? No? SCREENSHOT!)

Isn't this just beautiful? See...if you blog/Instagram/talk about fashion AND the gym enough, people will naturally assume you know everything that there is to know and come to you with their burning yoga pants etiquette questions!! Love it!!
Don't worry, I answered her questions and tried to calm her fears. But we also both agreed that in addition to the regular tours and orientations gyms provide when you join, someone (probably me) should teach Gym Fashion 101 class. Not knowing the unspoken rules about underwear should never hinder someone from wanting to work out! This is an atrocity!! No wonder Americans are obese- there are so many tricky obstacles preventing us from wanting to work out!
Anyway. I thought about making a survey to gauge yall's opinions on the question my friend asked. An underwear survey, if you will. But I didn't. If you're brave, feel free to speak up your opinions on this extremely important topic in the comments. Or put forth your other burning Gym Fashion questions, like is it okay to mix neons? (yes!!! according to me, anyway) and how many days in a row can I wear the same workout leggings before it's considered really gross? (definitely not something I've ever pondered myself) Have a great day!
