I really love that sentence! cool.gif
Always tried to find words for that annoying affectation they always display.




misspissed, I think when it comes to homedecor, you'll probably never going to get two people to agree on something. I mean what's gross to someone might be "tres kitsch" and "oh so camp!" to someone else...

i wonder if that has anything to do with women trying to grow out their hair all white? if that's the case, it will look fugly for months until all the dye has grown out/been cut out.

agreeing that the attack of the jessica simpson clones are pretty much the worst fashion crime out there.

so, would this be the proper place to post a crime of home decor fashion? because i am gonna.
i live in a very ethnic neighborhood, and the people tend to be devout catholics. a lot of the houses round here have these white "lace" curtains up in the front windows, which while not my style, are pretty benign.

there is one house, though, which has this full collection of religious curtains -- including "praying hands and rosaries", with the showstopping "pope Benedict" style.

oh my.

I got a new cell phone this week, one with a camera, and yesterday, I tried to take a picture of a COF, but I forgot that I have to "save" it, it doesn't do it automatically. This woman was about 40 or so, white trash bleach blond hair, decent body, but wearing these short-shorts, white with a red floral pattern and a matching halter top with lots of midriff exposed, and cheap red mule shoes with it. It was bad. She was attached to the arm of a sleazy looking guy, which made it worse.

*Ack!!* to the Barbie look.
Fake tan, fake nails, or "french manicure" which LOOKS like fake nails, straightened and usually dyed-blonde hair (which is not as subtly done as they think it is) -- and the attitude that anyone who doesn't look like that is ugly.

And the grey/silver/white ROOTS showing makes me think someone is a slob or just literally insane. I see a lot of women just walking down the street with it, dressed up, thinking it doesn't matter - but it's a lot worse than just dark roots in blonde hair.

and, not being ageist, cause my own hair went gray at 28 -- it's just -- the horror of having really bright roots and also showing what you're trying to cover up that gives the *insane* willies. Like, wait, you spend a ton of time and effort not to show your gray hair, but you don't look in the mirror and just comb it or pin it differently when it's time for the hairdresser and you're going to go out in public? gads.

Agreeing on tunics-should-not-be-worn-as-dresses. I do like proper sweater dresses though, as long as they are long enough to be worn on their own. Does no-one teach people that you should practice sitting down when trying on a short dress?

I have a pair of skinny jeans too. I'm short-ish; those wide-legged things look wrong on me.

So uni has re-opened, admitting through its doors this year's crop of women with tans and straightened hair, with the 2006 addition of randomly worn leggings under aforementioned tunics or flippy skirts. I have more of a problem with the hair and fake tan than the clothes, tbh.

It's one of those trends, started by the anorexic glitterati.

Funny how in the 60s not even the heroin addled rock star girlfriends wore their tunics like that.

I agree: those dresses should be worn with jeans or leggings. If you really must show your legs then team it with a denim skirt or something but your ass on show makes a pretty dress look fugly.

There are a lot of long, tunic sorts of tops right now (the just below the ass length like the dress lowredmoon described) which I thought were perhaps meant to be worn with skinny jeans or leggings or whatever, but I keep seeing girls wearing them as dresses. and not looking so great.

I just succumbed to a fashion trend and bought some skinny jeans. I am terrified of looking like a COF in them, so I'm just wearing them around the apartment. I recently saw Cat Power in concert, and she was wearing some, but kept saying, "don't believe the label on the skinny jeans; they call 'em skinny, but they make you look fat." Of course, she looked great and not fat in hers. Hrmph.

I love wedge heels. My favorite sandals have wedge heels. I'm short and my legs look so much better with a little elevation. I don't like the dressiness of straight-up heels (and I can't walk in them either), but wedges are a little more casual. I have SO many really cute flats that I've always wished had a bit of heel.

I've been trying to buy a pair of shoes for few weeks now, and I don't remember that has ever been so difficult.
Every single pair of shoe I saw has a wedge heel! I mean wtf, whatever happened to choice?

I don't even hate them, I just can't walk in wedge heels, they just feel so weird...

They can look really nice, in some summer/ plateau/ 70s retro chic, but that's not happening now.
All I see in the shops are native american style mocassins, or 20s style charleston shoes with cute round tip, then I turn them round to check the heel, and they all have wedge heels!
It's just so wrong.

Woman in the supermarket, mid-fifties, long, gray Joni Mitchell hair (she looked quite a bit like Ms. Mitchell, in fact, even if she cut her hair pixie-short), tank, cropped jeans, jean jacket, hooker pumps. Now while that's not so bad, maybe a little "mutton dressed as lamb," what really stood out was the horrid, dried blood lipstick drawn waaaaay outside her lips.

Woman sitting at the bus stop. Late 40's. Black dyed hair. WHITE roots. You think that's bad? It gets worse. Her hair was meticulously parted in the middle, right down the back. The whole look reeked of Skunk.

there were many, many crimes of fashion in the city last week, but one has stuck with me so long that i need to report it, except that it's difficult to describe.

a dress. it was red, with some sort of a white print, except that the yoke was plain red. it had kimono sleeves. it was flowing. it sort of reminded me of a 70s caftan, except...it was short. like just-under-the-ass short. like a shift, maybe? her purse was pulling it dangerously high on one side. and with it she was wearing enough large, long gold chains to make mr. t blush.

I love watching people with an off-kilter fashion sense. Sometimes I can't tell if it looks great or grotesque but I have to admire them for trying to be a little different. I can't tell you how sick to death I am of the same straightened hair, big sunglasses, pink lips, and cute little dress with heels look. Or jeans with heels look. It's like most girls try to look like Jessica Simpson. I always feel so uncool when I'm around them (wavy brown hair and vintage clothes) that I appreciate someone else who risks a little in the sartorial world. Interesting street fashion is where it's at. (Not to say I don't comment when a woman's wearing a color-coordinated sweatsuit with matching scrunchy. That's just wrong unless you're a model, 14, and being totally ironic.)
