I'll admit to the leggings thing too - but I'll also admit that I have very long shapely legs too (hell, it's about the only body part I got going for me).

I've got a backlog of CoFs!

Gauchos - Infinity
- Black coochie snacks (nee, gauchos) worn with white panty hose and white slides!
- Yet another pair of black coochie snacks, well worn and not in a worn well way. Like in a "these are my only skants (skirt/pants) and I wash them daily" way. These things were so pilled I could see the pilling from 10 feet away! Seriously, it was like she was growing tribbles.

A few weeks ago I was sitting around a hospital in my old 'hood while my momma was in surgery. I miss my old neighborhood, but damn, the people there know how to bring the crazy. I saw a fair share of really super pregnant teenagers and I swear at least 5 of them were wearing cropped tops. We're talking baby-tees with slogans like "pornstar" and the like. Uh, yeah. I shared the waiting room (for HOURS) with a woman wearing the most cod awful capris known to womankind. They were also at least 3 sizes too small for her. They were supposed to look "distressed" (and the stitching, unddoubtably was distressed), but really looked like acid wash to me. She was quite pear shaped, and they were ruched. Completely. From hem to waist. And people, her vag wasn't just munching on them, they were bingeing! I was horrified, and tried to keep my gaze down where I saw some piggies in desperate need of a pedi. Desperate. I mean, her feet were like rhino hide. I'll admit that I have a trenchant "no toes exposed" policy and get more squicked out than the normal person when it comes to seeing flip-flopped feet, but seriously, these were bad. Filthy filthy feet with thick yellow nails, and enough crusty dry skin around the heels to honestly make me feel naseous. And, ya know, to each there own. I don't like seeing peoples feet, but whatevs, that's just me. But you can not disagree that there are some feet out there that should NEVER see the light of day in public, much less in a hospital.

Oh sweet & merciful Bea Arthur! This post isn't long enough yet? I just walked down to get some water and lo & behold see TWO major crimes of fashion.

1. Very smart black & white patterned wrap desk with a crocheted/fringey poncho & black crocs. It was like a sartorial interpretation of schizophrenia.
2. Adorable pale pink flats with a pair of very ill-fitting brown velour lounge pants (a la J.Lo 4 years ago) with a grey Wonder Woman tee.

Both spotted in a corporate office.

Last night I was in Queens Center Mall, buying a schweet swatch watch, but never mind that....

WHAT THE HELL PEOPLE?
I saw more strangled, gasping for air vaginas walking around than I care to even joke about. Can't they feel that there is a freaking SEAM cleaving their cleft further into two? I mean, come on, yes there is a sometimes occasional camel toe happening especially in thinner material soft weaves, sometimes, what I refer to Camel Toe at Rest occurs, when one can't help that their noni has started eating the crotch of their pants, shorts etc, when they sit down, but seeing as this is usually just seen by the offender when looking down into their own lap, I am assured, as when it happens to myself, that you raise yer ass a bit, tug at the thigh material and give some air there.

The other thing. Roots. I admit, I am currently an offender. But seeing that it is summer and the fucked up highlight job that I got done on stripped hair, (yeah not reccomended), am I really at fault for my now broze / orange/ sunin looking shaded chunks of ass my hair is, when I can't even think of dyeing it for the next 3 months? I have however an inch or two of roots. BUT when your hair is half spaghetti looking highlighted orange blonde and brown and the new "growth" is 6-7 inches? Don't flop that shit up in one of those twisted up messy clipped updo things. It looks like you went into Claire's Boutique and bought your black hair self a fake hair clippie for halloween.

There is crime happening in front of my eyes.

Elderly man, trainer, pulled up white socks with the st georges cross, african-y print shorts in red and orange, red jumper with white and yellow horizontal stripes.

Its too much for my eyes! But I'll let him off, seeing as he didn't add leggings to the ensemble.

Maybe there's an outreach programme that supplies mirrors to those in need?

Today, shopping for shoes in posh department store (fat chance): blonde woman, tanned, late 30s/early 40s, channelling the 80s. White T shirt with *rolled up* short sleeves, black cotton jumper (in the American sense: a dress held up with straps) over--you guessed it--knee length leggings. Flat gold shoes. Hair up in a *rakish* looking hair clip. I expected her to smell of 'Giorgio'.

I love it when these people walk around innocuously, innocent of the havoc they create in their wake (or leggings debates anyway).

Yeah, Bustygirl, I like leggings too. If I wore 'em the first time, I must be too old now though?

Right then, on a woman in her fifties:-
Glittery espadrilles (ok)
Huge glittery gold bag
Lots of glittery bangles, inc. huge glittery hairclip holding frizzy bleached out hair in a side ponytail!
Long floaty skirt (phew, something innoffensive)
LIME GREEN NYLON LACE SHIRT, TIED UNDER THE BOOBS. Displaying a wobbly white tummy.
Also, she had electic blue eyeshadow applied as if by spatula.

However, I then realised she was returning a large make-up brush, and exchanging it for a small one. Maybe she was on her way back to the lime green shirt store?

Cripes, and I only just shook off the Ghost of Leggings Past when I cleaned out the storage bins three years ago.

So, the brown tight leggings UNDER the shorts is a new fashion print?!

Hmmm....interesting, I guess.

ack, doodle, i am trying to make sense of that lady's outfit. yikes.

so over the weekend i saw a couple in matching outfits, sort of.
the girl had a dress in the same print/fabric of her beau's shirt. the dress and shirt were of an OK cut -- but the fabric print was the most horrendous thing i've ever seen outside of "That 70's Show". it was a grey-blue lava-lamp inspired blobby kinda print.
horrible.

my coworker and i couldn't imagine what store you could even buy something like that -- we conjectured they had them custom made. *double barf*

[size=2]Actually, I like leggings. <dodges tomatoes>

[size=4]Delia's has quite a few cute things this fall. More than I've seen in the last few Stevie-Nicks-Threw-Up years. Very mod--clean lines, proportions that make sense, bright crisp colours paired smartly with neutrals. No sequins, overstitching, shrugs, holes, or stupid hippie prints.

Oh, it's true ... leggings are back with a vengeance. I was surfing through the Delia's online catalog the other day (hey, come on, there are a few cute things! Like the black twill pants I'm totally buying when my paycheck comes ...) and they have a whole *section* called "Tights and Leggings". Eeeeeyikes.

Nothing original to report from here; just a scary pair of white cameltoe-making gauchos, paired with an odd-looking lime green shirt. Pretty standard for this thread, though!

sad.gif sad.gif I saw a girl today outside the grocery. Pretty girl (head turning pretty!) with nice white cami top, hoop earrings, cut-off blue jean daisy dukes, really pretty strappy sandals.

Ok, "And the CoF?" you might ask? Well, she also had on brown leggings underneath the shorts, that fit skin tight and fell about mid-calf length.

Now, I'm not all that up on the fashion beat, so I ask: Is this a CoF, or is that just something that's now in style?! huh.gif unsure.gif

Too wierd if you ask me, but then like I said...

wow. after years of lurking, i finally, finally, have a cof to report. and it was noticed while i was driving, so you know it's pretty bad...the return of the ass-inhaling gauchos, part sixty-ten.

woman wearing all white (shirt ok, just regular) but the white, see-thru, skin-tight up the butt gauchos that outlined every uneven surface on her ass were what did it for me. it gave a new meaning to cottage cheese butt (not that i don't have the same frickin thing, but i don't wear too-small white spandex type things that highlight it.)

sheesh, i say. SHEESH.

And this was no small sports bra. It was huge. Which is fine, when it is being used for its correct purpose. Not when it is being used for under a tiny, strappy, pretty camisole!

Why does it make me so angry?

Not a truly outstanding one, but a crime all the same :

Young girl, plain black nicely fitting work trousers, pretty silky cream camisole....... and a black sports bra.

Why?

Ok. I've been saving this one. If anyone finds out I posted this, I'm sure the negotiations are off. Anyway. We met with an elected official last week, and she has...interesting taste in clothing. Seems to me, she's always worn pink when she meets with us...and I know, psychologically speaking, you are supposed to wear pink to subdue your enemies. Last time, she wore a black and white glen check suit with pink lace trim. Weird.

THIS time, she wore a black two piece skirt suit...WITH....are you ready for this? All the edging around the neck, front, hems, and cuffs was rick rack, like a Chanel (maybe it was a Chanel), BUT, the rick rack was really thick, like running shoe laces, or maybe even wider. AND the rick rack was patterned in black and white gingham. AND in the middle part where the rick rack changes direction...in EVERY empty spot, there was a little bow. Alternating bows: black satin bows with a black and white gingham pieces on the front of them, AND slightly bigger pink satin bows with pink satin flowers in the middle. And she wore this with a black and white gingham shell top. And you just know this is a very expensive outfit. Like I said, she seems to favour the Chanel-type suit, but a vastly overdone variety of them. Maybe they are the real thing, maybe not. But they are just weird.

I started to write down a description of the outfit in my notebook during the meeting, but then I realized it was going to be burned into my retinas forever.

...and her ratty bra showing. A bra. With a tube top. And not just any bra. A bra that used to be white but is now all ucky.
