How true is the natural oil? Do you use soap or just water, Synth?

i said i would do it a few weeks ago, but i finally got around to it. i made a thread for shorts and cropped pants. anyone who has had to battle the heat should take a look and, better yet, contribute.

We only bathe her when she finds something disgusting and rolls in it, which is...more regular than I would like. I think we have a bunch of different things we've accumulated, but it's always some sort of doggie shampoo (or mane n tail)

need new kicks. anyone got the hookup for a size 39?
post #74285 of 98288

Thanks for the tips, Synth. I might end up not adopting, since I'm not into smaller dogs but I won't have a lot of room for a medium dog, and a large dog is totally out of the question.

 

 

Does anybody know if there's a website where I could get a custom-printed sweater? I don't mean like a picture printed in the middle on the front, I mean like an all-over print such as this:

I remember once when I was younger my mom's now ex-boyfriend got a t-shirt printed similarly using a high-resolution photo that I sent him. It was a surprise gift because I was really into photography at the time, and I really liked it but it's too small for me now. I have no idea where he got it done and I'm no longer in contact with him since they broke up a few years ago.

I don't know maybe I'm just burned out from all this shit since I'm content with everything I have and nothing nowadays holds a candle. This is why I really enjoy honest designers like stephan schneider, he allows you to look good and enjoy other pleasures without ripping you off. I place a high value on, well, value these days.

you say this this week, let's see what happens a month from now. it's cyclical.

I found it on this blog of photoshopped sweaters that somebody linked me too, hence my curiosity:

Cool, thanks! I wonder if they have any photos of sweaters that have been made. Seems like I'd have to contact them and ask.

I guess I first went through a phase of needing to buy everything that I saw others buying.  I was so absorbed into this new world that I had to dive in head first!  Once the honeymoon phase wore off, I have just tried to find balance between good design and fair prices.  One can argue that pieces like TOJ actually have value in their craftsmanship and quality, but others are extravagantly priced just due to the name.  Being a student that juggles full time work and school, I have to realize that some of the great things I see on here I won't ever be able to afford (even on B&S). I just hope that I can somehow compromise without sacrificing decent design.  To that end, brands like Uniqlo and others in that vein have helped to build a (hopefully) solid foundation.  As money trickles in, maybe occasionally I can get a piece that I have had my eye on.

 

It's just an interesting paradox, because once I have amassed enough funds, sometimes the cycle of style has moved on. A delicate dance that I'm still slowly learning.

 

Agreed. I like to see what's out there (why I'm here) but designer markup is for people with a lot of disposable income. I think it's fine there are $250+ t-shirts and I would rather see rich folks spending their money than hording it. I will pay for quality but whether or not I like something does not always correlate to price. I also look for things that aren't trendy but have some style, high quality clothes should last a long time and not look out of date in a couple years. And patience is a virtue, I don't need more clothes and I'd guess nobody here does, so waiting for a sale or looking for alternatives can really pay off. I almost never pay more than 50% of retail and many times I pay a lot less if I'm lucky or buying used.
