Now, spork. THAT'S a good word.

yes! i love sporks. best invention ever.

now, as for skorts- totally unnecessary, people. let's make a commitment to either a skirt or shorts. it isn't that hard.

Hee, bklynhermit: Just Say No to Fishnet (with miniskirts and disco shoes)...

I personally would like to deliver my own rules old commandment-style: "Thou Shalt Not Wear the Blousy-top micro-mini dress. Ever." (Maimy owes me new eyes)

what's with fishnet kneesocks?

i think they were invented so that you could have the fishnet look under pants, longer skirts, etc.

but no, they are NEVER to be worn with a miniskirt.

and they are ESPECIALLY never to be worn with a miniskirt and open toed shoes.

the biggest Crime of Fishnet is fishnet kneesocks worn with formal shorts AND open toed shoes, when said shoes were SILVER DISCO PLATFORMS. and blue tinted elvis sunglasses. i forgot about those. goddess forbid if you are already wearing formal shorts, fishnet platforms, and disco wedgies, do NOT accessorize with elvis sunglasses. just don't. ok?

yes, this is actually based on a real live person i saw on the subway. i wanted to walk up to her and say "No."

From: Does it matter? This'll only be dingo'd again


I'm so old I was around when they were skorts in the 90s and around when they were coulottes in the 70s. I wore a skort dress to King's Dominion once. It was funky-60s hip, and my mom had made it. It was also kinda handy because the wind wasn't keeping a SKIRT in any shape for protecting State Secrets. Other than that day, I can't remember ever desiring a skort/coulotte or finding them appealing ...

Luci, totally with you. Imagine the wringing I wish I could give to my eyeballs when I see the uber-tight spandex microminidress that has an enormously blousy, loose, off-the-shoulder top ... Think I am kidding? Think again:

heehee, my mom wears culottes.

Dude, culottes? Gah. All I can think of is that the fundie-xtian school cheerleaders were forced to wear culottes instead of proper cheerleading skirts when I was in high school, and we mercilessly made fun of them. Now people are apparently wearing them voluntarily.

Anyway, the CoF that almost made me trip over the sidewalk yesterday: 3 teenage boys walking together, two all hip-hopped out in their baggy jeans and tshirts and whatnot, and the third in a cowboy hat, tucked-in tshirt and tight jeans, and boots. More of a crime of context than anything, really; soooo confusing!

God...are skorts back? it's like culottes falling from the sky or some shit. Now, spork. THAT'S a good word.

And can I just say: this big studded belts over blousy blouses and miniskirts trend can just go.the.fuck.away.now. Is it really the 80s again? Frankly, I'm not interested in dressing in some sort of Reagan-era-homage, and consider it an assault on my senses...

Doesn't it get really expensive to stay so misguidedly trendy?

Can someone tell me what is up with the new trend of wearing pajama pants under shorts and worse..short skirts? I have seen this twice in one week.

Ambercherry, I think it would be appropriate to wear dressy sandals to an interview.

help! i need some advice - before i become a crime of fashion (not that i have a problem with being one, because i'm sure i am most of the time). anyway - wasn't sure where else to post this, so sorry if it shouldn't be here.
i have a job interview this afternoon, and the shoes that i would normally wear have given me blisters and i can't wear them. so, i have a nice pair of dressy black sandles - is it appropriate to wear them to an interview? (it's in a quaint little store). (i would be wearing them with either black or grey dress pants and a blouse) (and i would make sure my toes looked nice).
thanks!

misspissed- have you looked at the different Dansko lines? The Golden Gate collection has a lot of different styles including some laceup oxfords. They are very comfortable and easier to walk in than the traditional clogs.

Walgreen's smock (unavoidable, she's a cashier), bright--very bright--green pants and plastic clogs. The clogs were bad enough, granted she does stand on her feet all day, but I could not get past those pants. (I'm still seeing them when I close my eyes.)

She says to another cashier who asked about the pants, "I have them in yellow, too, but I really like green."

I wear Birkenstock thongs or Blundstones most days, depending on the season. I walk about 8 km/day to and from work and I am up and down stairs all day when I get there. I find the Mephisto sandals less comfortable than the Birks.

Oh no. I forgot what thread I'm in.

I saw a woman today who looked like a middle-aged Stevie Nicks on crack. I know Stevie Nicks *is* middle-aged, and probably on crack, but you know what I mean.

Thank you for posting that info about Paraboot, speedy- I'd never heard of them before and they are just the cutest shoes! I'm waiting to hear back from them about where I can get them around Chicago!

I have CoF shoes - a pair of deck-shoeish, orthopedic, Mephisto walking shoes that are hideously ugly but comfy (I walk about 2K each way to work every day). I hate them, but I bought them because they were on sale for $150 - down from $375. I'm a CoF whore when a good deal is involved.

Also, I had a dream that I spotted the ultimate CoF - a woman dressed in a pant suit made out of caesar salad. The military-inspired jacket had epaulets which buttoned with croutons.

I have no idea what this might mean.
