Neon Doves

Endangered Species

Is chivalry dead? Are dudes losing their "fix it" skills? Are they going to stop opening the door for us? Or carrying heavy items? Or pumping our gas? Maybe feminists will disagree with me, but I'm down with some lady treatment.

I remember when I was younger, maybs 4th or 5th grade, I was at my friend's house and their dishwasher was broken. I was super confused by this, but I remember not saying anything. After making some Hot Pockets and snagging some Capri Suns and Gushers, we headed upstairs to watch some TV only to find that the cable box was broken. No cable?! Well how the fuck were we going to watch Jenny Jones and Jerry Springer? Enough was enough and I finally asked, “well where is your dad?”. She looked confused by my question. To me it was obvious. I mean duh, if something is broken, go get pops--he'll fix it. I'll never forget this moment because it was then that I realized, not every guy is like my pops. Not all guys can fix everything. Not all guys drop you off at the front of a restaurant so you don't have to walk in the cold. Not all guys can fix your car. Not all guys can install a garbage disposal or build you some furniture. This makes me sad because they just don’t make them like they used to. The fix it dudes are becoming more and more scarce, and it's unfortunate. So ladies, if you find one? Hang on tight because they are a rarity these days. And dudes, if you can’t fix shit? Learn.

For today’s post I put together a look that oozes Heroin Chic. Think Kate Moss, Mary Kate Olsen, or even Courtney Love. It’s kind of like 90s princess meets morning hangover, and I can dig it. Along with this strung out sparkle jam of a fit, I’ve blown some glitter kisses in hopes of casting a magical spell that will result in more of the endangered species of Handymen. I refuse to let this rare breed fade away into history. We need to keep them alive! WE WILL PREVAIL. Peep that ish:
