This Ruffled Camo Top Is So Much More Than a T-Shirt

Sometimes you wake up and you’re just not into it. “It,” of course, meaning everything. Working, cooking, getting takeout, exercising, Zoom happy hours, grocery shopping — anything that involves you having to be a real person. One of the biggest no-nos on those days is getting dressed in uncomfortable clothes. There’s no way you’re dealing with putting together a “real” outfit when you’re already so over everything. And you know there’s no way the iron is coming out!

If you’re going to get through those types of days, you have to keep it simple and comfortable. A T-shirt and joggers or leggings will do the trick. But the thing is, even if you’re not feeling like your peppiest, cutest self, it’s not like you don’t want to feel that way. If you’re still interacting with others, especially, you still want to impress. That’s why you need a top that’s just as easy to wear as a tee, but way more unique!

With this top, you have soft, comfortable material and a relaxed fit with nothing clinging to your stomach, and even a long hem you can wear over leggings. It also has a cool, casual grey camo print. So far so good, but camo is definitely on the tougher, sportier side of fashion. Where do the elevated features come in?

We were simply saving the best for last: the ruffles! This top has ruffled cap sleeves, just barely covering the shoulders, but even better is that these ruffles continue down the sides of the torso, traveling halfway down to really accentuate the butterfly wing effect. Ready for the bonus? The chest pocket even has a smaller ruffle trim of its own!

This pretty detailing dresses up this camo top so well that on the days when you wake up and you’re feeling 100%, you’ll still find yourself reaching for it. How cute would it look with a high-rise skirt and wedges? We love that the ruffles stop at just the right place that there won’t be any bulging under your bottoms!

We love the grey camo version of this top, but there are other versions available too, including a green camo, a leopard print, multiple tie-dye variations and a few fun graphic designs, so if you want to grab more than one, you’re more than welcome to do so. The price is right!

Mariah Carey’s secret indie rock album was ‘for laughs’ and there’s a music video hidden away somewhere

Mariah Carey’s secret indie rock album she made 25 years ago was done ‘for laughs’ and she even filmed a music video.

The singer wanted to have a crack at that type of music because it was ‘popular at the time’.

She and the band she was working with decided to hop in the studio where she recorded ‘nonsense’ to see what it would sound like.

And the Honey singer even filmed a music video to go with it.

Speaking to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, Mariah explained: ‘I did it for laughs. [It] was such a popular genre at the time. I was like, “Well, I have a full band here. Let’s just do something, and I’ll just make up some nonsense and sing it”.’

While she tried to get the finished album released, her label apparently wasn’t keen on the idea and it was scrapped (boo).

‘I did a video, and I want it to be released so bad. My plan was I was going to dress up in a costume and make a video and be unrecognisable and just release it and see what happened’, she went on.

‘But that got stifled by certain people at the label so I kind of had to abandon the project, but I’m kind of happy that at this moment that the fans are actually hearing it.’

The star revealed the secret music project, released as the band Chick for their 1995 album Someone’s Ugly Daughter, in her new book The Meaning Of Mariah.

She explains: ‘I’d bring my little alt-rock song to the band and hum a silly guitar riff. They would pick it up and we would record it immediately. It was irreverent, raw, and urgent, and the band got into it. I actually started to love some of the songs. I would fully commit to my character.

‘I was playing with the style of the breezy-grunge, punk-light white female singers who were popular at the time. You know the ones who seemed to be so carefree with their feelings and their image. They could be angry, angsty, and messy, with old shoes, wrinkled slips, and unruly eyebrows, while every move I made was so calculated and manicured.’

On Twitter she elaborated further saying it got her through some dark days.

‘S/O to my friend Clarissa who performs the lead w/ me as a hidden layer #Chick#TMOMC,’ she added.

A representative for the star told Pitchfork that Carey ‘wrote, produced, and sang background vocals on every song from Chick’s album.’

Watch as Weird Al Sings A Song About Last Night’s Debate: America Is Doomed

Published

on

By

‘Weird Al’ Yankovic already has a song about last night’s 2020 Election Debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Yankovic teamed up with the Gregory Brothers to pen the song, which is called “America Is Doomed, The Musical.” The debate has been on the minds of nearly everybody who tuned last night, which is evident if you spend more than 10 seconds on social media. CNN’s Jake Tapper called it, “a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck.” While Tapper’s description seems a little over the top, many people from both sides of the aisle are agreeing with it.

As it turns out, Weird Al Yankovic was more than a little freaked out by the first 2020 Presidential Debate. Yankovic begins the video by screaming into the camera, before being asked to something a little more “dignified.” From there, it’s classic Weird Al, though it’s a little darker than some of his older material because he’s taking on current events. Regardless, “America Is Doomed, The Musical,” is a catchy song that will more than likely find a lot of people humming along.

What sets “America Is Doomed, The Musical” apart from older Weird Al Yankovic material is the fact that he and the Gregory Brothers implemented parts of last night’s debate into the song. Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden can be heard singing about the public health crisis in one particular verse, while Yankovic takes on the role of moderator between the two presidential hopefuls. They even get into the economy, and from there, things start to spiral out of control, just like they did in real-time last night.

Weird Al Yankovic and the Gregory Brothers aren’t the only ones flipping out over the first 2020 Presidential Debate. Mark Hamill went to Twitter last night to say, “That debate was the worst thing I’ve ever seen & I was in The Star Wars Holiday Special. Comedian Patton Oswalt came on and suggested that American people bring in John Wick to moderate the next debate, while screenwriter Jeremy Slater said, “That was the worst thing I’ve ever seen, and I wrote Fantastic Four,” after watching last night’s debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

There are two more 2020 Presidential Debates scheduled to lead up to the election, which takes place on November 3rd. Next week will see Vice President Mike Pence go up against Kamala Harris, with the presidential debates starting up again the week after that. It’s unclear if Weird Al Yankovic and the Gregory Brothers will be writing songs for each of the debates, but it would be nice if they did for everybody’s sanity at the moment. The New York Times were the first to host the video for “America Is Doomed, The Musical,” but you can check it out above.

Stevie Nicks Says Harry Styles ‘Is Definitely In The Running’ For Her ‘Rhiannon’ TV Project

By Brent Furdyk.

Stevie Nicks has made no secret of being a huge fan of Harry Styles’ music, and if she has her way the “Watermelon Sugar” singer will be involved in her upcoming TV miniseries based on one of her biggest singles.

In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, Nicks discussed her in-the-works TV miniseries based on a series of novels about the Celtic goddess that inspired her 1975 Fleetwood Mac hit “Rhiannon”.

After purchasing the rights to the books, Nicks wrote 10 unreleased songs for the project, which has also been reported as being a book or movie.

Admitting she still doesn’t have a cast in mind, she did reveal that Styles “is definitely in the running.”

She joked that she only wants Styles as he is right this moment. “I’m going, ‘Harry, you cannot age one day. You have to stay exactly as you are. I’ve already sold him on it,” she said.

Earlier this year, Nicks told Rolling Stone that while she’s been quarantining, Styles’ latest album, Fine Line, has been her constant musical companion.

“Harry is recounting a lot of experiences that I had in my own life, beautifully. And making me remember stuff, and bringing back memories that I really didn’t love and memories that I did love,” she said.

“For me to hear a record made by somebody in his mid-20s that says a lot of things that I haven’t gotten around to saying yet blows my mind,” she added.
