Finally, A Suit Of Armor Fit For A Guinea Pig

“Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable? Do they get picked on by other guinea pigs? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go with you to a Renaissance Faire but had nothing to wear? Fear not! A solution is here!”

This is the text of an eBay listing for the majestic suit of guinea pig armor and matching helmet shown above. Apparently the suit was handmade for the guinea pig in the photo, Lucky, who unfortunately passed away before he was able to use his armor for anything other than a couple photoshoots. His owner is now auctioning off Lucky’s outfit to the highest bidder, and donating all proceeds to Virginia’s Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue. The current winning bid? Over $8,000. Yes, seriously. Lucky’s legacy will live on for quite some time. [eBay via Digital Spy]

Bar Trivia

When my brother and his girlfriend visited Nashville last week, I couldn’t wait to take them to one of my favorite bars. We ordered some food and drinks, sat down at a table and started chatting, when suddenly the lights dimmed and a man with a microphone told everyone to choose a team name. We looked at each other with a mix of confusion and delight: apparently we had stumbled into a trivia night. We spent the next two hours answering questions about subjects ranging from insect larvae to Tim Tebow, and we lost badly (half our team was jet-lagged!). After doing trivia in multiple cities across the country, this latest experience made me realize something: every trivia night, no matter where you are, no matter how formal or casual, will attract the exact same roster of teams. They are as follows… Keep reading »

See those dark, hairy gams and the suspiciously smooth feet attached to them? If a recent wave of internet stories are to be believed, those furry legs are actually a pair of stockings marketed to young women in China as an “anti-pervert” device. Some news outlets are reporting that the hairy stockings aren’t just a fashion statement — they also “send electric shocks to an attacker and GPS locator coordinates to the woman’s family and friends.” That sounds a bit far-fetched to me, but hey, stranger things have happened.

Welcome Mat

My brother and his girlfriend are visiting me in Nashville this week, and I’m so excited (and honestly, a little nervous) to host my first real live house guests.

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Winona’s Dad

Dad Style

I love the idea of doing a fashion post inspired by my dad because his complete and total disdain for fashion is one of the major reasons I became interested in it. My dad’s style outlook can be summed up as “function over fashion.” He chooses his outfits based on two factors: comfort, and strategic efficiency in the event of a zombie invasion. For this reason, most of his wardrobe consists of zip-off cargo pants, hiking boots, safari hats, and misanthropic message T-shirts. Can you see why I’m excited to turn him into an unlikely style icon? Get the classic “Winona’s Dad” look (venomous snake not included) for yourself after the jump! Keep reading »
