Happy Day Before Halloween! Would you call this mischief day?..or rather..Misschief day? Anyway, in the spirit of Halloween and all things scary, this week’s hoody is one that scares us here at Shred Betties: the Nikita Saadia Zipped Hoody. When Kelly first showed me this hoody I thought, “Are we in The Wizard of Oz? because that looks like a scarecrow costume.” In fact, I’m sure you could actually scare crows in the field with this one. Maybe even little kids that come trick-or-treating. We suggest you save your $60 for something a little more human.
You may want to put on some shades for this one. This week’s hoody is the Kidrobot Starry Day Hoodie (kidrobot.com). It’s certainly a flashy hoody (pun intended), but I really like it. Our Art Director, Julie, says Kidrobot hoodies are comfy so we’ll take her word for it. Um..you’re not going to like the price I’m about to spit out, but it’s because this hoody is limited edition! There’s only 112 in existence. Though, if you want you could buy the men’s version (it isn’t as fitted) for which there are 256. But just think, you could be one of the select few owners of such a magnificent piece of clothing. Also, this hoody isn’t just sold everywhere. Besides the 3 Kidrobot stores, it’s only sold in select boutiques (or on eBay if you’re lucky).
Yes, it’s certainly Hoody Tuesday time again. On this week’s silver platter is the Matix Asher Zip-up for Fall 2007 (matixclothing.com). In the past few years Matix has been coming out with solid women’s clothing, and these Asher hoodies definitely fit that description. Unfortunately, I don’t own one of these fantastic hoodies ( I have to limit myself or my entire closet would consist of nothing but hoodies and beanies), but I’ve tried them on and they’re comfy and cute. On Matix’s fall ‘07 line there are 8 colors/prints (Repeat Grey is shown at the right) that the Asher comes in and, depending on the color, it retails for about $60-65…
Since I posted earlier this month bitching about outerwear that looks too much like streetwear and annoys me … I figured I’d give props to the companies who are making stuff I love: Tacky pants! I don’t know what it is about them, but I don’t feel right unless people look at my snowboard pants and scream “Augh, my eyes, my eyes!” I don’t really like tacky jackets, a plain jacket is fine for me… but I can’t resist brightly colored pants with insane patterns on them.
I thought I’d also share this gem:
Just in case you don’t want to change into a skirt for your evening out, Bonfire decided to add a detachable skirt to your snowpants! Don’t get me wrong, I love Bonfire… but is this a joke? They even mention that you could wear the skirt alone, so it’s like two for the price of one? Neither look very flattering.
We saw these at SIA and I thought they were rather amusing, and I just found them again - they’re gigantic rings that you can wear over your gloves, so you don’t have to go without your jewels when you’re shredding. This is from a cute, but rather interestingly named Japanese company called Kicker Fucker Chicken (KFC), which makes various accessories, including wallets, little pouches and ipod cases.
So I thought there was no substitute for the adrenaline rush of snowboarding during the long summer and fall months. Turns out I was wrong. All you have to do is jump out of an airplane!
So with the approaching season I’m sure many of you, like myself, have already or will bust out the old walletÂ to fork over some $$ for some new gear whether it costs $5 or $500. I encourage buying, especially of women-specific products because it leads to the creation of more and better women-specific gear items. However, before you look to buy a completely new setup, there may be hope to revive your old stuff! ..and in a cheap way! Yes, that’s right folks- all you need to do is mosey on down to the drug store/hardware store/office supply store (okay so pretty much everywhere sells it) and pick up some good ol’ duct tape. You’re in luck too, because it comes in so many fun colors.
