I am a nurse, and tons of the people I work with wear Crocs with socks. It's bad. The worst is shorts with Crocs and socks, though. Hideous. I also really hate it when people wear white athletic-type low cut socks (like the kind that just come up to the foot-ankle junction) with clogs. What is the deal with that? It seems to happen a lot with nurses and doctors as well. It looks stupid, and the point of those socks is to wear with sneakers. If you're wearing clogs, you need to wear regular socks or no socks. And no white athletic socks with black or brown leather clogs.

the yellow one is the least ugly of them all-but definitely not my thang. It would earn a couple points if it weren't that nasty cheap fabric~

yeah, this woman in one of my spring classes wore crocs with socks everyday. She worked in a hospital, but it still hardly excused it...

i actually really like the polka dot one. i like the cut, i think it's cute and vintage-y and i would wear it. but the others do not look good. it only works if it's all the same fabric and an okay print (that purple plaid is gross. but i hate purple anyway)...and of course this is only if it wasn't fake silk gross polyester. i would wear it if it were just regular woven blouse fabric.

and i think the right guy can pull off an elaborate moustache...


i saw a lot of COFs at the comic con last weekend (mainly people wearing spandex who never, ever should), but the worst was a girl wearing a pair of crocs......with SOCKS. isn't their main thing that you can wear them barefoot and they won't get smelly? isn't that one of their damn selling points? i never thought that crocs could look worse but APPARENTLY IF YOU WEAR THEM WITH SOCKS THEY CAN.

i also had a dream that i got a pair of crocs and was okay with wearing them. i am surprised i didn't wake up screaming.

I'm wondering what figure that could possibly hope to flatter. Unless, you know, it was actually a maternity shirt. And it would still be ugly and unflattering in that case anyway.

those models are smiling, but they're crying on the inside. And they're eyes are not shown so they can remain anonymous~

homanist-
the models are smiling bc maybe they had to get them high, and convince them they were playing an integrel part of a massive joke on Suzi Q Public in order to don them in the first place.

those look like circa '70's maternity shirts gone very wrong.

spotted:
man w/ a highlighted or frosted blond mullet.
even my girl recognized it from billy ray cyrus (who plays hannah montana's dad (duh) on the tv show of the same name, where they frequently make jokes about the style in a nice way.

sad or weirdest thing is, it looked freshly coiffed.

IMO, the handlebar mustache is right on. Sexy in a Tom of Finland way.

Even better is the handlebar mustache combined with muttonchops. Very Founding Fathers.

Why do people think it is appropriate to wear an entire outfit made out of an obscenely bright colour.

*vomits*

I saw this a while ago, but there was someone wearing an entire outfit of camouflage, but the thing is the pants did not match the shirt. So it was two toned differing colours of green camo. It was awful and busy. Very very busy.

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


Humanist, it's funny you say that - I was watching Age of Love last night (okay, y'all can get into what a crime THAT is too ... heh), and one of the "kittens" wore this royal blue satin getup for whatever they thought they were doing (it really wasn't an elimination or ceremony or anything Reality TV has led us to expect ...), and it was wrong in so many different ways.

Why do so many of the plastic girls who live to be on Reality TV seem to have such unerringly bad wardrobe? Is it the shows' fault (see also: Joe Millionaire), or their own (see also: Melrose from ANTM) ... ? There seem to be so many sources for Teh Bad Fashion, and so few good influences, in that milieu.

Yes, I was forced to use the word MILIEU. THAT. Is how bad Reality TV fashion has become.

*Shudder*

Maimy, word.

The people I know who need a little help in the fashion dept. always seem to be the sweetest, and I can't bear to call them CoFs. Who they are really does transform them physically in my eyes too.

I was also going to post about Crocs, but I see the topic's been well-covered. Glad I'm not alone in my dislike of those things.

humanist, eewww...that's not pretty! Target has really gone to hell, over the last couple years. I used to love to shop there.

misjoy, my hubby has done the handlebar mustache thing also, just for laughs....but he looked pretty tough with it. I giggled everytime I saw it.

Cof 1: Teenage guy wearing a jeans and a t-shirt. The crime being that the t-shirt said retro in big letters.....what the hell was 'retro'? Just because retro cloths are in, doesn't mean the word retro should be printed in large letters on a shirt.

Cof 2: At the grocery, I spotted an entire family of five sporting various colors of crocs. Mom in purple, dad in bright neon green....and so on. It was very unsightly.

I saw one of the ugliest garments ever at Target yesterday. It was this icky polyester "satin" fabric, with short, poofy, tapered sleeves and a wide, square neck, and a sort of 'bib' around the collar. The worst part were the colors the shirt came in. One was shiny ROYAL BLUE, and the bib was black. The other one was shiny black with a BROWN bib. Brown and black rarely goes together, and this was far from any exception. Royal blue is rarely flattering to any human-and the black collar made it even worse. I wish I could find a picture of the shirts on the website, but I couldn't-so here's a similar one-and almost as ugly. The sleeves on this shirt were tapered though, and it was some fake satin fabric.

I went on a rant to the boy about how awful it was, how I can't believe anyone would design and approve the thing, and especially how anyone could buy one! He agreed that it was just about one of the most hideous things ever. We stood there just gawking in disgust at the thing tongue.gif
