Thanks for deleting my comment. Your post is still offensive.

For another definition of why it is offensive, wiki the phrase "cultural appropriation."

Maggie, I actually didn't delete your comment. I don't delete comments unless they are outrageous or use offensive language. I'm not sure what happened to yours. I got your comment in my e-mail, but when I looked at the post... it was gone. I figured you deleted it. Oh well.

I'm sorry that you find my post offensive, but I'm not going to apologize for having a Pocahontas-inspired costume. I didn't create any of these costumes myself---they are all sets from members of Polyvore. I thought they were cute ideas for Halloween. :)

You're entitled to your opinion and I respect that. I'm sorry if I've lost your readership.

I will not argue or debate the topic any further. See the disclaimer about my content at the bottom of the blog.

These are cute, but the Pocahontas one is bothersome. It feels icky to see people using a culture as dress-up or a costume - I feel similarly about geisha, Eskimo, and (East) Indian costumes. No one walks around saying "I'm dressed as a white person!" It would be absurd. I wish it were just as absurd to dress up as someone of another culture, too.

I respect and believe that you meant no offense by including it, so I want to make clear I'm not actually angry with YOU, but rather a culture that allows such a costume to be deemed acceptable (and continually popular).

Thanks for the rest of the inspiration.


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
