Beach Towel Most Foul + Cute Mocs!

So, we're off to the beach tomorrow for a whole week! I needed beach towels, so, despite the fact that it was raining like the end of days, I went to the haven of schlocky closeouts that is Conway (it's like a dollar store went on a crazy meth binge and robbed a Sears). I knew I'd find some delightfully tacky misprints, but I had NO clue I'd find something so deliciously foul... Observe:


Go ahead -- click on that shit. The dude's cut-offs are SLIDING OFF, and it looks like he stuffed a potato down what's left of them.

I bought four.

This dude's like a cross between early '80s Michael Jackson and the Unabomber. Amazing. (And speaking of bombs, please try to disregard the fact that my bedroom looks like one detonated seconds before this photo was taken. I think my room couldn't handle the gravity of the towel and shit just started flying toward the door in an attempt to escape.)

On the reals, on my way home, I also bought myself an early birthday present:
($55, Minnetonka, Epaulet)
I'd been wanting a pair of mocs for forEVER, so I stopped in Epaulet on Court Street, where MK got her Melissa + Campana rubber shoes last month. I'd wanted a white pair, but the natural flavor in the middle appealed to me the most, so I went with those. I'd been into Epaulet before, but this is the first time I'd purchased anything. I chatted with the owner, Mike, who's super nice. Great great shop -- you must go!

And speaking of go, so must I! To the gym. Gotta look HOT when draping myself across my King of Pop/ Ted Kaczynski towel. HEEE HEEE!

Okay, I REALLY want a pair of mocs, too, but I'm not 100% sure how to wear them in a way that isn't reminiscent of a 3rd grade Thanksgiving Day play. Any advice?

I love my wedge mocs (perfect combo, in my mind) but that towel is totally making me want to barf.

I want a tattoo of that man on my back so I can have him with me wherever I go.

isn't he awesome? i didn't realize the extent of his partial nudity when i bought it! i bought like eight towels, and had i known, i'd have made all eight dude towels!!!

amanda -- i think they're cute with slim jeans (don't have to be super skinny, but you know -- nicely fitted, not too wide legged, but that can be cute too if you're going for a '70s look), and like a fitted plaid shirt or an oxford/ buttondown shirt, or just a solid colored V-neck tee. sound good?

Um, holy Tom of Finland. Color me all shades of jealous of that towel. I can't even begin to imagine the looks of sheer envy that must have been thrown your way at the beach the second you spread that puppy out on the sand.

Bulging crotch aside, I love those moccasins. I have a pair of Minnetonka Kilties, which are basically the same except without the beading, and I wear the crap out of them.

The mocs, I don't get. The towel, I do. That's just wrong, isn't it?

Thanks for picking up the Mocs, and glad that you like them!

Although that towel is pretty sexy, I fear that it will make the children cry. Use it at your own risk!

tuntra said...

bahaha, that towel is ridiculous. I love it, the mocs are nice too. I'm not sure how I would pull them off if I had a pair though..
