Check Me Out: Safari Spice

Check Me Out: Safari Spice

Uh, the tea, that is.

No one would want me in an all-girl British pop band, believe you me. I can’t sing or dance, I giggle when I try to look sexy, I’m not British, and I can’t even play a tambourine. Plus I’d have to get drunk before every show to overcome my stage fright, and then I’d undoubtedly trip and fall and put somebody’s eye out with my sharp elbow(s).

HOWEVER: I can and do wear short shorts. And that’s half the battle.

This is, my friends, the official unveiling of the Sapphire Cordial ‘safari short’. (I can make that singular, right? Everybody is always throwing around the word ‘pant’ to mean a pair, and sounding very fancy doing it, so why not?) Anyhow, the point is, I slaved away at these (or should I say this? This short? So confusing) so that I could wear them in front of a curtain of the same material so you would have to squint real heard to tell that I don’t have an invisible pelvis. See? It’s a lot of work. Now you know how I feel.

I rocked this ensemble to see the ultimate awesome girl band Agent Ribbons, our dear friends who were touring through on their way to SXSW.

As I may have mentioned previously, I have a penchant for neutrals. But that doesn’t have to mean a bleh outfit. It’s all in the details. A coin adorned scarf here, a four pound necklace there. What’s that, you broke/lost/got in a fight with one of a pair of earrings that really would complete your look? Go wild and only wear one! Gasp!

Don’t you feel liberated and somehow safe all at once? It’s like engaging in a little sado-masochism with someone you really trust.

Just in case you were wondering, the safari short will be available at Tucson’s wonderful Preen, um shortly. Get it? Get it?

  • The idea of Safari Spice made me giggle! Although I’d call this look “gypsy spice”. You definitely have the legs to rock the short- did you get any weird looks or compliments on them when you wore them out?

  • I’m looking for a great skin vitamin. I don’t want to take
    individual vitamins so I’m looking for a brand that is all in one. I have a condition where I don’t
    produce natural body oils and my skin is BEYOND dry.

    I’m allergic to lanolin, aloe, and almost every medical cream the doctors have given me. I need to treat this from the inside out. Not to mention I live in the desert so that doesn’t help either.

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • Esto es de un episodio de “Border Wars” no sicarios de un lado o otro. Que pena que estos blogs “informativos” le tengan lealtad a ciertos grupos. Si no fuese haci subirian el video y dejarian a uno decidir si dicho grupo “corrieron como niסas” Pero ya vemos que todos estos videos ya traen la agenda de distribuir propaganda desde un principio. Y peor aun que este video no se trata de? niguno de los grupos mencionados y simplemente no es nada mas que “hecharle porras” a su cartel preferido.

  • I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  • With almost everything that appears to be developing inside this subject material, a significant percentage of points of view are generally quite stimulating. Even so, I appologize, but I do not subscribe to your whole idea, all be it exciting none the less. It appears to everybody that your commentary are actually not totally validated and in actuality you are yourself not totally confident of your assertion. In any case I did enjoy reading it.

    Despite the fact that I would�ve liked it much more if you inserted a related video or at least pictures to back up the details, I still believed that your update was somewhat useful. It�s regularly difficult to make a complex issue look rather straigh…
