This is a big day for yours truly and The Dude Diet at large because the very first round of exclusive DD merchandise has officially dropped, and I am Logan-style PSYCHED about it.
I know this may come as a shock to some of you, but I didn’t always want to be a weird blog lady. As a kid, I wanted to be a fashion designer. (Honestly, I wanted to be Britney Spears, but designer was my “realistic” back up career.) But then I slowly came to realize that designing required certain skills, namely drawing and sewing, and I was simply too busy doing karate, styling my pixie cut, and watching Dawson’s Creek to hone said skills in my adolescence. And so my design dreams were cast aside.
Thanks to the Internet and my fabulous partners at Fullscreen, my childhood fashun dreams have finally come true!! A number of unisex styles—including tees, tanks, long sleeves, and hoodies—are now available featuring some DD words to live by: MY BODY IS A WONDERLAND.
This statement is pretty much The Dude Diet philosophy in a nutshell. Feed your body mostly good things, work it out, and remember that you are a sexy beast. My goal is that wearing items emblazoned with this mantra will boost peeps’ confidence and serve as a friendly reminder to stay The DD path. If nothing else, I hope it provides a few laughs and sparks some good stranger convos. I’ve been wearing my t-shirt on the reg and have made many a new friend because of it. Just throwing that out there. For better or worse, my roommate is rather fond of the tank….
You can shop all the limited edition styles HERE. They’ll only be available until June 13th, so make sure to snag your favorites ASAFP!!! (For the record, I think they’d make an excellent Father’s Day or graduation gift. Or you could do your Christmas shopping early?) And if you do get something and want to share a picture of yourself/others rocking it on social media use the hashtags #TheDudeDiet and #MyBodyIsAWonderland so I can see it! I will then shower you with likes and compliments and share it everywhere. Duh.
I made you a little video modeling my favorite tee and expressing my general excitement over DD swag, which you can watch below, but before I go, I just want to say this: Thank you for the amazing Dude Diet support over the past few months, I am inexpressibly grateful!!
I hope you love this merch.
I hope this is the first of many DD collections.
I hope I get to go to fashion week now.
