Welcome to the Em and Sid In & Out update for the first quarter of 2011:
Fashion
In: Keeping your flesh covered. Flesh is beyond disgusting. The only acceptable showing of the flesh in icy London weather is your clavicles, a small area of thigh if you are wearing long socks and a short skirt or shorts, your ankles if you are wearing cropped pant and your upper back. Only one, we repeat only one of these at any one timeOut: Getting your tits/bum/tits and bum out in the cold. Its winter girls –  stop pretending it’s not. Baring the bod in arctic conditions is try-hard and HUMIL
In: NavyOut: Brown, any kind of brown
In: Having your own sense of styleOut: Being a clone of your friends
In: The original supermodels with tits and an arseOut: 13 year old ‘daughters of’ who haven’t hit puberty yet
In: Clashing colours eg red lipstick with a pink dressOut: Dressing like you’ve just got your colours ‘done’ at Laura Ashley
In: Statement high-quality accessoriesOut: Cheap necklaces et al that managed to get their lucky escape from H&M on your credit card. This is clutter, it is not necessary and you will wonder why the fuck you bought it in the first place after 5 minutes
In: Normal sized handbagsOut: Handbags that are so big they could fit a Bedouin tribe inside them
In: Leather.Out: Lace, this trend is so so over, ugh
Life
In: Manners & reserved behaviour ie.  Knocking then entering, please and thank yous (yes we can’t believe we have to detail this either but some people are just fucking rudeOut: Wanton yelling and tourettes-like outbursts (unless you actually do have tourettes, this cannot be helped and we do understand)
In: Getting shit people out of your lifeOut: Giving too many last chances
In: Being revoltingly organisedOut: Living a shambled life
In: Being happily singleOut: Going out just to meet men
In: NutritionOut: Consuming only 2 out of the 5 food groups
In: Alcohol free Monday to Friday, most weeks. It’s impossible to do this every week … we’re not insaneOut: Living in a drunken stupor
In: Banning everything you are unable to do in moderation (for us this is chocolate)Out: Being an over indulgent mess
In: A smoke free bedroomOut: Letting cigarette smoke permeate every atom of your existence
Friends, Relationships & Dating
In:  Tradition and chivalryOut:  Making your date split the bill at dinner. Some boys actually don’t feel embarrassed to do this. We put these males into the raised by wolves category. And for the record, when we offer to pay half, you’re not supposed to accept … we only do this to be polite (see earlier point about manners)
In: Keeping shit to yourselfOut: Oversharing and breaking down into a blubbering mess
In: Waiting for the right person  Out: Dating a diet coke version of the person you really want, this is so beyond humil
