Hey Lux,

You didn't ruin my day! I may have come across as a little bit harsh... I agree that they can look good with certain outfits, most definitely. However, when people where leggings and only leggings, and don't have a body for it (some people can actually pull it off, if only few), it is a fashion faux pas. And Eastern Canada is still waay too warm.

sorry about ruining your day lananas. not that i use my leggings at campus, i think it's appropriate to wear actual clothes to lectures (no training outfits, please). but i must admit that i kind of like leggings, and in a right ensamble they can look good. maybe not for everyone, though.
and i have to repeat, it's still to warm in eastern canada to wear beenies.

Yesterday I went to a music festival put on by the local "alternative rock" station. With a lineup that included Social Distortion, Bad Religion, Jimmy Eat World and Plain White T's, there was quite a variety of people there, as well as quite a few COF's. Some of the highlights include:

--Girls wearing floaty tunics with leggings, no pants
--One guy who had the name of a really rich suburb in my area tattooed on his back (because apparently the real thugs come from Scottsdale)
--Two girls who decided that since it was 93 degrees out and sunny, they should just skip the clothes and wear their bikinis. No pants, shorts, or skirts, just the swim wear with flip-flops and sneakers.
--Teenage girl with orange skin and bleached hair wearing a skirt that looked like a denim belt and a bikini top
--On the opposite end of the spectrum, I saw at least two teenage boys wearing knit caps and hoodies in the afternoon when it was still fucking hot as hell
--Girls who were wearing extremely tight jeans and shirts, with the dreaded muffin top in full effect
--Some guy at one of the booths wearing a women's one-piece bathing suit, cape and Mexican wrestling mask (okay, that one was kinda cool)
--Several Vera Bradley bags
--Trucker hats
--Kids wearing t-shirts with band logos that they probably picked up at Wal-Mart the day before because they wanted to look "cool," even though they probably couldn't tell you the name of the lead singer or even name one of their songs
--This one I wouldn't consider a COF anywhere else, but a girl wearing a green, patchwork, floor-length dress with a turtle appliqu├ęd on front, that looked like it belonged more at Bonaroo or a bluegrass festival. The dress was cute, but out of place.

And, my personal favorite:
--Guy in his thirties, wearing a gray cowboy hat, black t-shirt, and a black Speedo. Didn't get a look at his shoes, I couldn't get past the Speedo.

The music was great, I had fun, and seeing horrendously dressed people is just part of what makes it fun.

The current fad in my area is leggings. Bleach blonde girls walk around campus wearing various colours of skin tight leggings thinking that they look fashionable. Perhaps fashionable, but leggings are definitely not for everyone.

Yesterday I saw an otherwise attractive young woman wearing black knit pants with flared legs, a tailored white blouse trimmed with white lace, and a black, t-back sports bra. the sports bra was on OVER the white blouse.

I vended at Strangefolk Festival last week, and they asked me for a zine contribution. I came up with this, and thought of you ladies while writing it. Enjoy. smile.gif

15 Rules for Dressing Yourself

Or: Things your mom never told you but probably should've.


1. A sports bra is not a top. Hence the word "bra". I don't care how hot it is outside. I don't care if your skin is actually boiling off your bones as you read this. You can still wear a shirt.

2. Men. Speedos. Really? Out of hundreds of styles of swimwear, you picked up a banana hammock and said "Yes, this feels right." Are you a blind tourist or do you just hate eyes?

3. Tweety bird does not belong anywhere on your clothing. Unless the look you're going for is "Winnebago Warrior", your attire should be WB-free. This ESPECIALLY applies to Taz tattoos.

4. Women, your skin should never be darker than your hair. Remember this rule if you don't want to resemble your handbag in your mid thirties.

5. College age girls are the worst dressed people in the world who are not currently homeless. No one wants to see your pajama bottoms and bunny slippers out in public, particularly if it's already noon.

6. Remember, comfortable doesn't always equal "should be seen outside of the house, or even through an open window". Sometimes it's a sign to others that you have, in fact, slept in those pants.

7. Anyone who's ever seen the movie "Big Daddy" knows why you don't let your kids dress themselves.

8. Men, cologne from the supermarket is not your friend. And unless your choice of mate is a lowland gorilla, you should run briskly from anything labeled "Musk".

9. Face tattoos pretty much tell the world you make bad life choices. If it's a path Mike Tyson's been down, it's probably a good one to avoid.

10. If it looks like your sixth grade art teacher would have worn it, it's time to burn it. Caftans and wooden jewelry the size of dinner plates have never been in, ever.

11. Purple and orange are the team colours of sexual dysfunction.

12. God put hair on men's toes as a sign they weren't to be aired in public. Sure, shoes are a bummer in the summer, but so is looking at acres and acres of hobbit feet.

13. Star Wars is a litmus test for dorks. If Boba Fett is on your shirt, you don't need a date.

14. Sir, if the hem of your t-shirt extends below your crotch, you are wearing a dress.

15. If you have a visor on your head, you'd better be serving me a tennis ball or a large order of fries.

I'm Beqi. I'm just doing my job to make the world a more beautiful place, one Six Flags patron at a time.

Maybe it is because I was brought up as a Conservative Jew but man one of the Holiest Days of the year which is why it is called the High Holidays, it is NOT appropriate to wear your black sweatsuit and gymshoes to synogage.


Nor is it appropriate to wear jeans.

But Happy New Year, one of my resolutions is to not be such a fuckin bitch.

I mean, nice sweat suit.

Seconded! I saw an old woman (and here I mean the otherside of 70) the other day wearing what was clearly a see through shirt without a bra on and it was... disturbing. She had clearly once been a large breasted gal as well.

In the supermarket....
At least 4 people shopping in pajama pants.

Two women with the only watermelon National Geographic centerfold circa 1986 wearing thin white tank tops, wait I'm lying, one was so stained yellow in the armpits that almost were at her waist, that I might be confused with the color...., NO BRA! I mean I'm all for comfort, but come ON! Please, no free ballin if your balls are sliding down your chest and bigger than anything sold in the produce aisle.

A very orange, ban de solied store brand sprayed fake tan chick wearing a too small coo coo for cocoa puffs brown tee rolling up at the hem over her belly rolls, black and white suspenders, cut off shorts that were 10 sizes too big, (seriously, it looked like the suspenders were holding up a barrel), white knee sweat socks, one with red stripes across the top, the other blue, and sky blue multi colored paint splashed crocs.

Between the plucking chicken fiasco, and the shit I saw at Keyfood, I need a bleach bath.

Today I saw denim capris with a scalloped hem and ugly silver beading/embroidery along aforementioned hem. As if that wasn't bad enough, the woman had white socks on with flip flops. The socks were kind of jammed between her toes to accomodate the shoes.

I also saw a guy with a brown v-neck sweater underneath a blue fleece pullover (it was 73 degrees out today). His bottom half was also layered: above-the-knee blue shorts made out of Dickies material, with calf-lenth blue plaid shorts UNDERNEATH the other shorts, and black socks pulled up to mee the bottom pair of shorts.

Lovely woman, lovely outfit: satin pencil skirt, strappy silver sandals, hair up, sweater falling off a bare shoulder. But hey, at 9:30 in the morning, it looks like you didn't make it home last night.

I saw a girl wearing a knit hat to a ska show recently, when it was 95 degrees inside and outside the venue. I'm still trying to figure that one out, it doesn't get cold enough here in the winter to need a hat.

Last night at the grocery store:

College-aged guy, cheesy, 70's style mustache and soul patch (that actually made him look better)
Dirty, orange high top sneakers with no laces
Dirty socks hiked up
Blue and white baggy shorts with vertical stripes and flowers between the stripes and geometric patterns in the stripes
Blue and white polo shirt with huge stripes running horizontally
Turquoise bandanna worn as a headband
Requisite bottle of cheap booze and pizza

The guy ahead of me in the checkout line commented about how people don't know how to dress around here. I couldn't agree more.

I especially don't get it in Canada. God knows there is ample opportunity to wear a toque all winter and most of spring and fall...
