I confess -- I was going to alphabetize crates of LPs Sunday and expected some dust. So I wore:
Glasses instead of contacts
No conditioner in my hair
No make-up or jewelry
Cut-off man pants shorts, rolled to the knee
Kneesocks --with stripes of many different shades of blue -- up to my knee
boots
an old, conservative navy blue "shell" top that was originally meant to be worn to the office -- it's faded and sleeeveless and has a silly, fussy little texture to it.

Hideous. Because I didn't want to mar my "real" clothing with possible dirt and dust i went out to breakfast at the hipster breakfast spot looking like a member of "The Lollipop Guild" from The Wizard of Oz.


Sadder still, the place was full of people that wear horrible combinations of inappropriate items because they've seen it in fashion magazines -- they wear, like, fuzzy boots with white skirts, plaids with polka dots, and outdoor hats and scarves inside, in the summer, so I fit in just fine.

Besides, I've got my flip flops for my egregious CoF.

Llamas,

I've done that plenty of times. From driving home from college (a 6-hour+ trip) to driving to my parents' house from Philly (a 4-hour trip), I'm the queen of slumming it in the car. Plus I usually bring my blanket & pillow (the hubby usually drives) so I nap, so why NOT wear pjs?

First, I must confess to having been a CoF Sunday for the drive from NJ back to Ohio; I brought a nice outfit with me and everything, but ended up wearing, literally, my pajamas: an oversized grey college tshirt, and black yoga pants. With shiny silver flipflops. *shame*

Also, at my office this week there has been a rash of unfortunate skirt suit/casual footwear pairings, most notable being an absolutely darling pink Jackie O. suit worn with Naturalizer orthopedic sandals in off-white. Bathroom cabinet mirror syndrome again, perhaps?

ha! i did indeed go out in my jammies and ugly shoes today. my neighbour gave me a ride back downtown later on in my jammies pants and a new tshirt i bought before i came home, and my ugly shoes and HE was wearing his ugly shoes in Bright Yellow. we ran into, oh, maybe ten or so friends also wearing their ugly shoes in a variety or eyeball burning colours, not one the same shade. and that was that. painfully atrocious foot gear.
still don't care, so damn comfortable.

In all fairness, I hate the look of Crocs. But my little sister (12) owns two pairs, and the last time I was home, I tried them on. Damned if they aren't comfortable. (I can hear Stacy & Clinton screaming now!)

That said, nothing beats the couple that I saw at work the other night-wearing matching bright yellow Crocs.

I could feel my eyes melting.

Every time I see a pair of crocs in a store, my feet start to sweat. It's like an instinctual reaction....

Bless me busties, for I have sinned.

I own a pair of Crocs.

However, they have never seen the outside as they're only worn in the house (and they are mightily comfortable).

Too busy lately to be out and about observing the fashion disasters. School's back in and soon I'll be back posting about lemming dressing students.

I think crocs -- is that what we're calling giant rubber clogs with big holes in them?-- are so ugly they're cute. I mean, nobody's TRYING to pass them off as tasteful. That said, I haven't gotten a pair. And now, summer is passing.

I saw a woman TRYING so hard to pass herself off as tasteful that she looked downright bizarre. I kept staring at her on the train, like, wtf?

She had a big birkin bag -- or knock off of same, because it was OPEN on the top, like a tote, albeit with birkinish hardware. This bag was bright orange with that white mix that makes it a kind of glowing"lox" color. She was so proud of this bag that she had it clutched under her arm right next to a RED sweater. Then, she was wearing white pants with a skinny brown belt -- but I could see the belt buckle in the middle of her back side, right above her butt -- and there didn't seem to be some huge decorative item on front.

So, backwards belt and while claiming "STATUS!" don't have enough bags or clothes to coordinate them... and she was quite cute, really, but wearing a hairdo that looked like a wig.

???enigma????

My husband arrested our local "diaper man" once! (That's what people called him here, too.)

He was this completely normal (subjectively) dude--but when he got drunk, he'd go steal his old Daddy's depends--he'd strip down--and he'd wear the damnable things EVERYWHERE! ohmy.gif blink.gif

One time he was running in the diaper across four lanes of traffic, and fell down on the median in the diaper. Needless to say--when we got him in down at the jail--he was in solitary. wink.gif

Every town has a recognizable "interesting" guy.

We have Bicycle Elvis. (No seriously, that's what folks call him. It's a small city.)

He has big sideburns and a black dyed pompadour, and always wears black sunglasses, and rides a bicycle all over town, carrying a plastic grocery bag full of pop bottles.

I saw the WORST!!!!! Comeover I have ever seen in my life!!!!! It was beautifully horrific!!! I wanted to snap a pic on my camera phone, but he passed to quickly....the comeover started at the back of his head and spiraled all the way around over the forehead and back to the other side! It was incredible!!


You don't live in the Philly suburbs, do you? Because I've seen a guy who matches this exact description come into where I work several times.

Crocs are Teh Evil. I just don't get it. Unless you're gardening or fishing, NO.

I've seen them everywhere. They need to die.

Hee - Ginger, I think you mean COMBover. The mental image that popped into my mind when you said comeover was ... inappropriate, at best!
