When you think of flannel, there are a few things that might come to mind: 90’s garage bands, Al Borland, lumberjacks, thick framed glasses sans lenses, Old Spice… Anyone else getting turned on? No?
And while I don’t need a man who borrows my beauty products, one thing I don’t mind sharing with my boyfriend is his shirts. Thankfully, when it comes to flannel, bigger can be better. The trend could possibly come across as a bit hipster ’cause as our new friend we picked up at Mas (you need to go eat there, by the by) said, “It’s always fall in Brooklyn.” (He lives there- he’s allowed to say that), but when styled a la glamorous grunge, it is anything but Brooklyn (as seen here)– not that there is anything wrong with that.

So, put that PBR in a paper bag, lumberjack. Flannel is back and not just for the Berenstain Bears.
Chances are that in the next week or two you will be attending some type of holiday party, dinner, or domestic gathering. If you are lucky enough not to be the one stuck hosting, don’t you dare show up empty handed. What? Were you raised in a barn? If you have ever hosted, you are aware of all the duties (and expenses) that come along with putting together a suburban soiree. Rather than show up with the run of the mill bottle of wine or spirit, how about picking up something that will actually make the lady of the house feel appreciated — and may even get you invited back again? Unless, of course, you don’t want to be invited back again… then might I suggest a case of PBR?
