Valencia Track Jacket
I actually had to put on a sweatshirt the other day. Does that mean it’s fall now? I hope not. If it’s fall where you are, tho, try this hemp/organic cotton track jacket, complete with thumb holes.

Friday Movie: Fried Green Tomatoes
Another classic, but one I just saw for the first time last week when I stayed home sick. It’s amazing to me that many of the reviewers and commenters didn’t see a lesbian relationship – it was plain as day to me. I guess it goes to show that you’ll see what you want. Maybe that’s why my parents had no idea I was gay until I sat ‘em down and told them … Anyway, if you haven’t seen it, it’s a fantastic film. And I’d say Idgie is a great model of 1920′s butch fasion, too.

Brooks Brothers Pants!
Go get yourself a nice pair of pants over at the Brooks Brothers clearance. It looks like they’re getting rid of the odd sizes, but if you poke around you can probably find something in your size. But for the love of god, stay away from the pleat fronts. My favorites are:
Irish Linen Plain-Front Trousers, $64
Plaid with Deco Plain-Front Trousers, $74
Silk and Wool Plain-Front Herringbone Trousers, $124
Clark Plain-Front Seersucker Pants, $45
Country Club Plain-Front Luxury Gabardine Trousers, $99

Havaianas and Threadless team up to ask – electric or acoustic? How about both! These guys have been making flip flops for like 50 years, so I think it’s a fair bet that they know what they’re doing.

I don’t have any shirts requiring cufflinks, nor do I attend functions classy enough to call for them. I still love them. Here’s a very nice pair from a self-described dyke owned jewelry studio.

As we all know, the way to get the best and cheapest (sometimes – depending on where you live) produce is to buy local. There are a couple of different web sites I’ve come across to help you find your local: farmer’s market, co-op, family farm, produce CSA, local-food restaurant, etc. These are for the US, so if you know of a good web site for any other country leave it in the comments!

Dates are awesome to the max. So is Hawaii (or so I hear …). How can dates from Hawaii not be awesome? They’re also organic and harvested by UFW members.
