Paging Andrew McCarthy

I meant to ask you guys:
When visiting my hometown in Oregon a few weeks ago, we noticed that the high school guys were wearing their polo-shirt collars turned up. And I spotted checkered Vans on a high school gal. Is 1986 happening all over again all over the nation? Or did Corvallis get a really outdated memo?

In other news, my nose for perfume is returning, after going on revolt during pregnancy. Hurrah! I can now say that I am liking the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab scent "Velvet," which I had a vial of from last year. Chocolatey, with dusty sandalwood beneath. Mmm. I also sampled the (non-BPAL) unisex fragrance Inis: Energy of the Sea. It smells quite a lot like L'Eau d'Issey, only not as overpowering, so that's good. But I'm not sure I'm sold on this ozonic/aquatic/citrusy/unisex thing. It's very 1990s. Still, I didn't have a desire to wash it off my arm, which is more than I can say for the Lolita Lempicka I sampled the other week. Yeeks.
