You tell me!



I was chatting with one of my friends today and I happened to pose the question to her "what's the deal with the whole mustache trend?" She had somehow missed this mini-zeitgeist. Do the rest of you know what I'm talking about? I'm guessing you probably do and hoping that one of you lovelies can enlighten me (and my friend!).

Ok, for those of you like possibly my grandma who don't get the reference to which I am referring (Hi Me-me!), there is a current trend that has been big for awhile that involves people wearing faux mustaches...more specifically at weddings, in wedding photos. I suppose it is sort of cute for a whole group of people to do something silly and fun for a photo. But why the mustache? What about bunny ears? Why not clown noses? One summer I attempted to single-handedly bring back parasols and the phrase "pleased as punch." Maybe it's possible for me to apply the same effort to change this whole mustache trend. Maybe I'll start a trend where everyone puts clothespins on his/her noses in photos and acts like they smell something stinky. But that's just ridiculous, right?

100lc_rwlisageoff9 So why is wearing a mustache cool? I honestly don't know, but I hope somebody can explain it to me. Don’t worry Me-me, then I’ll explain it to you!

Call me old-fashioned, but the only way I will ever have a mustache in my wedding photos is if the Sally Hansen Crème Hair Remover was past its expiration date…Lord forbid!


  1. I am so out of this loop it isn't funny! I had no clue that the fake stache was cool...go figure. That may explain my lack of wedding invitations this year...hmmmmm? LOL

  2. This is new to me. But of course now I will see mustaches everywhere and wonder, where did I read about this? For the record I'm trying to bring back "Word!". It's not working.

  3. First I've heard of this "trend". But I'm with you, I cannot fathom how it is that this is cool!!!

  4. Hmmmm, I honestly have no idea why the 'stache is so cool! Maybe people finally realized what a hottie Burt Reynolds is?? Just kidding ;)

    I think the 'stache is the cutest thing ever, though. I love it! Summer over at 'B is for...' is to thank for my love of all things 'stache-tastic :)

    Kate, please jump on the bandwagon with me!! XOXO

  5. i'm not sure WHY mustaches are so awesome... but the guys my husband works with (my husband included) spend all their time in iraq trying to grow the best mustache. they have a contest and the winner gets a trophy and everything. lol. i think it has to do with macgyver or however you spell his name. at least for those guys. ;)

    thanks for following! :) your blog is so cute! def following back! :)

  6. One of my friends did this when we were in college and it became a huge trend. However I dont get it at all and think its kind of weird. I guess i'm just not "this" trendy...lol :]

    PS Thanks for the recipe girly!


  7. haha! i don't know either- although, i think it is cute! we found some at the stationery show and they had a polaroid photo booth to take pictures in with them on. i guess the vintage feel is what's fun...

    fake moustache- funny/ real moustache- no thanks!

    glad we found eachother's bogs! :)

  8. Oh how funny. I just used this photo on my post yesterday :)

  9. oh, and I think it's darling. :)


Lay it on me y'all!
