"SL*T SAYS WHAT??" - tribute to Conor.

So today is Little Brother's Birthday!!

Conor is not just a little brother, he's 6 years my junior THUS he's 6 years stupider than I am.

MY POINT BEING: We have a relationship where I'm the superior one and I've given him advice since he was a Zygote.

With that said... he has somehow become much wiser than me. Sure, I can answer questions about what college courses he should take and how to approach girls...

PAUSE: Here's a sidenote I've discovered recently. Y'know when you're at a bar with your girlfriends and a guy starts hitting on one or all of you and you all start getting upset & treating him poorly? I'm not talking about the obvious creeper or just the blatant disgusting guy, but the normal guy who really isn't doing much wrong besides making an approach on a girl he finds attractive and somehow, somewhere us girls decide to be "annoyed" of his attempts. I was (okay am on some occasions) that girl getting annoyed. Until I found myself giving my little brother advice about girls and he often told me he would say "Hi" or something equally harmless to them and he has reported their rudeness. CRAP. When I think about my poor, little brother being treated rudely by a girl I feel the need to chew her out (okay not really, I just love my brother) so I start to feel kind of bad for my habit of a guy coming up and saying "Hey! So, which team are you rooting for?" and me instantly rolling my eyes and turning to my friend... give them a chance! That's someone's brother!

but that's about it, on a more grandiose level of how to act, be and exist in this world....somehow over the course of the last few years, Conor has surpassed me in wisdom.

He often puts me in my place in a hilarious way and his insults to me are oddly some of my favorite things. Of course he says them wearing a huge smile on his face and it's all said with LOVE, but they are really accurate insults to me (coming from a Brother) and they are perplexedly quite funny.

This dynamic of me being able to explain to him the things I know such as:

***"Line up early for football tickets!" now that he's at the college I attended***


***"Get the oil changed in the car!"***

Coupled with him providing me with amazing tips such as:

***"Stop saying 'totes' - you sound like an idiot"***


***"Ohmygod, you seriously love yourself" (as I innocently glance in the mirror before going out)***

... works quite well.

But perhaps his most often noted remark to me is the "SLUT SAYS WHAT??" one.

Typically, after I've shown him a dress I want or done my makeup for a family dinner or merely if I'm showing him pictures of something I wore out with my friends... he looks at me, with the dumb smile on his face, "SLUT SAYS WHAT?" implying in some way, shape or form- I look a wee bit trashy.

So, in honor of Conor on his 19th birthday... I hereby would like to show off some adorable, fabulous, sexy dresses that would look great on all of you but if I wore, I would be greeted with a "SLUT SAYS WHAT?".

Without further ado, here's the "SLUT SAYS WHAT?" collection (aka some cute ideas to wear to a Holiday Party):

ALLEN SCHWARTZ Black Draped Cocktail Dress (below)

Sequin/Striped Dress- Bebe.Com (below)

Pailette Tube Dress - Express.Com (below)

Satin Strapless Bubble Cocktail dress (below)

Bandeau dress(below)

Adorable LBD found here (below)

I LOVE all of those above!

In all honesty, Conor is an Eagle Scout, a University student who recently voluntarily signed with the Marines for an Officer-Training program (which means he won't deploy until after his College graduation) and an all around hilarious, wonderful little brother - and one of my best friends. Love you Dude!!

Um... that red dress above is a little short... "SLUT SAYS WHAT??"

Lemme first say, this post is TOO CUTE. i love the entire post dedicated to your brother. Happy birthday to him.
I have two little brothers-so I know how it is-even when I'm not at all close to them!
And the dresses are sooo pretty! I want.

Leah said...

Happy birthday Connor... little brothers can be annoying but who cares? They are the most honest critic out there. You have such a great relationship with little bro, keep it up and don't mind the 'slut says what", annoy him more. Hahaha!

But I truly believe that December-born people can be rascals but deep inside they are kind-hearted persons. My two boys are my best examples and now comes Connor.

Kate said...

Conor is tres lucky to have a big sis like you!! And ohmigosh you look so much like Audrina Patridge (when she was blonde) in that bike picture. Love!!

Hahaha - this made me laugh. Yay for our little brother! I still CANNOT believe he is 19.

Remember the day he was born and Mom and Dad made us go to school and we thought it was the most unfair thing in the world???!!!?! I remember that like it was yesterday.

Happy Birthday, C-Man!
