During the early 1900s it was considered risqué for suspenders to be visible in public.
Since then, suspenders have been featured at menswear runway shows. Occasionally I’ll spot a guy wearing them at weddings, and it’s actually really, really sexy! But unfortunately the men’s suspenders trend hasn’t hit the masses. Lately I’ve been seeing females sporting suspenders. I have to say I like this trend just as much on women as men. Oddly enough I don’t even find them that masculine looking on women. The look is appealing to me, and probably those of you like me (who have loads of solid colored, basics in their closets) because suspenders spiffy up an otherwise simple outfit.
Here are some of the looks I’m loving.
Whose idea was it to set aside one day in the year where imbeciles have the entire day to make everyone around them suffer with pranks? In my opinion (and unfortunately, in my experience), pranks go hand in hand with bodily harm, and I’m all about staying as far away from a hospital as possible. But how do I get people to understand that I mean business and that they better not mess with me? My solution: studs. Anything studded reminds me of bad ass biker babes, so I have found a few items that I will have by next year so that I will be good and ready. And to the jerkfaces who think that stealing my sandwich out of the staff refrigerator is comedy gold, I have 25 words for you: we have cameras in the building and I can ask Grounds to bring me the tapes of the lunchroom in order to catch you thieves.

Now I know this belt only has one stud, but it doesn’t really take much to scare off people who only pull pranks once a year – on a day that is reserved for pranks.
