Re: Sharla's Instagram story. She has to be trolling us at this point, because of the conversation mainly being about her choice of personal style & grooming over the past week or so. She's here guys, and she's Mimei-level passive-aggressive about it. Which must mean we've hit a nerve for our speaking the truth. Sharla knows damn well what theater performance, ballet, symphony or dinner show attire is. She's doing this MPDG fantasy bullshit act to appeal to her teenage viewers (see I don't know "how to adult" just like yew guise!) and to get our goat.
I feel as if Sharla has limited awareness of what's going on around her, and this is what has caused her to get to this point. What passes on the coastal areas of the western United States and Canada is not going to pass in an actual cosmopolitan setting. The west coast is extremely new with lots of open space, and the population density is very low. It's outdoor equipment inspired attire year round even in our so-called (teeny tiny) cities. Hong Kong, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Seoul & Tokyo are a long way from Teva sandals & cut-off jeans for driving to Trader Joe's in your Subaru hatchback. I've picked up on the drastic differences in everyday clothing just by absorbing media from that part of the world, let alone having lived there for exactly 1,134,013 years as our friend Sharla has. She innately has absolutely no idea what appropriate attire for each occasion is compared to women who grew up in that type of urban environment, because she's not used to it (at first) but now it's just being stuck in her ways. What she needs to do is get her head out of her ass and look to women approximately early-to-mid 30's around her. While she's still "sooo faar yeiu guise" from Tokyo, she should hit one of the many department stores while she still can, and some real cash on elegant, mature clothing in neutral tones. Simply going on a "no buy" of animu merch for a few months and the money will pile up. If she needs foreign brands that do not have a presence because of a sizing issue, these US retailers ship to Japan, and here's a shipping service.
Yankee here chiming in that I have seen mulled wine, have been served it at Christmas parties, and on a Beauty YT'ers channel a vlog it was served at a Christmas Market in the upper Mid-West (where there are a lot of Americans of German/Danish/Swedish/Norwegian ethnicity) where it was referred to without any Anglicisation at all as "Glühwein". According to Wikipedia, it's a thing all over Europe. Why Sharla "I'm Hungarian af" manages to make it to her early thirties without ever knowing about it is beyond me, as the first time I had some I must have been roughly 20 years old.
It's little details like this one that set off red flags for me that her marriage/partnership is really a facade for the benefit of both of them. Almost seems like they're both gaining something out of the act that they're in an adult romantic relationship with the other, but are basically roommates when the phones & cameras are turned off.
