I’ve mentioned my love for the animated series Family Guy before. On one episode, Peter Griffin gets his own segment on the local news called “What Really Grinds My Gears.” Take a look.
The incest/period portion of that clip isn’t relevant to my post today. I don’t even have a brother, for God’s sake! You people and your perverted minds. I love you anyway. But I’ll tell you what really grinds my gears. A designer named Pam Hogg. She specializes in designing shiny catsuits best worn by pop stars and celebrity spawn.
You regular gals who don’t want to look like C-3PO on the stroll can get the more conservative dress version of the look for 795 pounds at Browns.
The mere existence of this stuff doesn’t grind my gears. What bothers me is that gorgeous blogger and fashion adventurer Susie Bubble boldly modeled some of the Hogg catsuits for a fun post — only to have Hogg’s people complain that it was “bad publicity.” Susie, being the nice person that she is, took the original post down. I, being the bitch that I am, say, “Welcome to the world of bad publicity, Pam Hogg!”
I also want to say to you peeps that there are a lot of designers who are thrilled by your enthusiasm for their work. I am always honored when customers or admirers post photos of my jewelry. I started a fan page on Facebook just to share those pictures. Basically as long as you’re not stealing my designs — or making off with one of my rings (that can only be forgiven once, Britney) — take as many pictures as you like and let the world know how awesome I am! I know my designing friends Christian Francis Roth and Zang Toi feel the same way. So if you’re going to spend your money, spend it with those of us who appreciate your fine asses! Do we have a deal? I think we have a deal! Just don’t buy stuff, wear it and return it. Now THAT will piss me off.
