Lip service

The second annual Mustache Bash is tomorrow!

I have been carefully grooming my mustache for the last month in preparation, and it is finally here: Shop Good’s second annual Mustache Bash. The celebration of the lip rug will rub its whiskery goodness all over Ninth Street tomorrow from 4 p.m. to midnight.

The massive block party will benefit Sunbeam Family Services and bring together the restaurants and businesses of the always-fun Ninth Street and Automobile Alley. All mustaches will be welcome — from the thin-and-villain-y to the waxed-and-curled handlebar — but for those of you with embarrassingly bare upper lips, Sunbeam will sell stick-on lip-ticklers.

Besides the ’staches, the Mustache Bash will include food, local artists, live bands and the new sunglasses line from noted mustache aficionado Warby Parker.

Is this thing on?

::clears throat::

Jenny has passed her vibrant and quirky torch to me, as you may have already heard.
I’m your new resident ShopGirl, and I’ll do my best to keep you sweeties up-to-date on all things local and must-go.

First things first, right? I’m Jenn. I grew up on a dairy farm where I milked cows every day.

I was also charged with gathering the eggs from the henhouse. The whole milking cow thing was OK, but the feat of egg gathering was a daily strain that spiked an unnatural amount of fear in my being. Why, you say? Well, have you ever looked at a chicken in its beady eyes?

If you’ve done so and lived to speak of it, then I can only assume you are a soulless fowl constituent who secretly leads a double life in a colony of birds. You probably meet bimonthly and discuss the demise of me and other feather-fearing humans.

Right, more about me ... I’m a cold weather fan. And by fan I mean that I’m obsessed with snow and rain. Pictured below: My first boyfriend and I.



You might be thinking, How in the world did this gal with an Oklahoma-farmer background come to write about city-centric shopping? Well, if we’re being honest, it’s always been in the stars for me.

I’m incredibly drawn to all things beautiful, and I’m open to the idea that perception plays into each person’s idea of beauty. That being said, I’ll do my best to provide you lot with a wide variety of options, as well as the tools to search out and build your own personal style. Do you have your own person style mantra? If not, get to work on that!

It’s really an exciting time in the fashion world, mainly because the idea of style has taken root, grown and returned to an industry that had begun to drift in a less-than-approachable direction. Style is now saying, “Hey! No one wants to wear that!” The idea of buying into trends because they are fashionable is slipping away (thankfully!), and the freedom to be creative and personal with your style choices is settling in comfortably as the fashionable front-runner.

Anyway, I want to hear from you. What do YOU want help shopping for? If you’ve got ideas for, or if you have specific questions concerning fit (Can’t find the right pair of jeans? Let me know ... I know a guy! Want to know where to shop for the highest-quality workwear that won’t break your bank? Turns out I’ve a penchant for penny pinching sidled along my budget-breaking tastes.), please send them my way. Email me at jscott@tierramediagroup.com. Together, we’ll be the snazziest metro in the Midwest. Let’s shop, OKC!
