Bonus: Em Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer
Talismans for your hips, astronauts for your forehead, bells for your ankles, bags for your wine...
As I slink glumly out of the summer sunlight into the SAD-inflected depths of The Bad Part of the year, I leave behind a legacy of having just been all smug for months while my friends in the northern hemisphere went through the exact same ordeal. Below is this month’s second bonus post (under the WIRE, sorry) of 15 things, with recs, of course, that you might not have thought of copping for the summer but will compound your seasonal joy, from temporary tattoos to ripstop gowns, some of which I road tested and modeled for this post.
Enjoy, and if you’re interested in receiving a minimum of two bonus posts per month, sign up below or HERE is a link to subsidized subs for two or less bucks a month! Feel free to share this newsletter with a friend and respond to this email telling me you did it if you aren’t able to afford the two dollars and I will comp you a month’s subscription.
THANK YOU for being here, and I am always available @humanrepeller on Instagram for sartorial scandals/situations/summons. Here is a little preview of what’s below the paywall:
I’m an advocate for just getting the damn tattoo, even if it’s stupid, and I don’t mess with those weird hyperrealistic temporary tattoos that are meant to simulate realness—but clearly faux, outrageous, or ostentatiously positioned (GO FOR THE FACE) temp tats are such an underrated accessory. I like outer space themed sketches dotting my cheeks, dramatic, sailor-esque renderings of sharks and fish bones, and of course, the requisite anime tats.
