I would like to report my roommate. She's a great girl. Has some great clothing and 90% of the time is well dressed. Enviable even. She has animal print under control and wears it well. But then she goes and puts on the loose, hangy, ass feeding gauchos. Or what about her dresses that look more like nightgowns. Last night I could have sworn I walked into the Grease sleepover scene only to realize it was not Sandy at the kitchen table but my roommate just getting home from work... in a white dress with a sparse pattern of small pink flowers... I wanted to touch the thing to make sure it wasn't flannel because it was so worn it looked like flannel. Not to mention the elastic arm band and ruffles.

i have seen several women lately wearing dark (navy or brown) pants with a striped shirt tucked in and a white skinny belt. it's not a flattering look. i don't understand why it seems to be everywhere all of a sudden.

the guy in the plaid suits seems to be really confident. i mean, why else would you leave the house looking like that???

It's officially SPRING, right?
Yeah.
At the gas station yesterday:
Navy blue t-shirt with some cool looking logo on it. (cool enough)
COMBAT STYLE KNEE-HIGH BOOTS in some funky orangey-reddish brown, with a zipper going right up the sides. (full combat sole-extra thick)
..........and ......
GAUCHOS--THICK winter weight GREENISH TAN ones, with a CUFF at the bottom.
yeah.

Hey, I'm with you guys. At least he's doing it *on purpose* I mean, wasn't the point of dyeing your hair crayon box colors : "Why make a fake color try to look 'natural'?"

I kinda like it...it reminds me of Malcolm McLaren and that whole 80s kind of vibe. Then I think of Adam Ant and all that fancy London stuff back then...oversized, acid-colored, loopy-knit sweaters on Johnny Rotten...and I just like it. He's dapper!

Sure I'd laugh if I saw him walking down the street, but I'd love to have dinner with him. And he knows people are laughing.

That said, some of the suit up top are SHARP, particularly on the two on the right. Sharp, indeed.

I sometimes miss men in sharp suits and good hats. Of course, there's always our dear Speedy.

I just about died when I saw this (see the bottom row of photos). So when MEN do shit like this, they're just called "free-spirited"??

pepper, i actually thought you had a decent outfit going before the funfur coat and toe socks w/ sandals. which couldn't be helped considering it was inexplicably cold out.

and bustygirl, wow. where does one even get that stuff? that's, like, a whole new level of sartorial insanity. one that clearly involves premeditation (the intensive color coordinating with hair to match) AND at home craft projects (tie-dyed tee, DIY patchwork pants). wow.

hippies gone wrong is my favorite genre of COF, definitely. that, and little old ladies who seem confused about what decade it is and what sorts of clothes are generally available in stores. my all time favorite is a woman in her mid sixties dressed to the nines in Jackie O style as if it is still 1964 and she is still 25 years old. including a cheap black dye job that has faded to purple, AND bright blue eyeshadow, bright red lipstick, and FALSE EYELASHES.

wow. this was from a few years ago, but wow.

Pepper, I bet you still looked better than the visitor from planet Whatthefuck we saw at our local Starschmuck's last night...

-Red/orange and tan mid-80's high-top puffy Nike's
-billowy pj-like PATCHWORK pants looking like they were DIYed out of children's day-glo comic book curtains. All in shades of neon orange and hot pink and red.
-Tie-dyed tee coloured--you guessed it!--dayglo orange
-manic-panicked fire engine red hair in no discernable style
-mid 90's Dr. Suess hippy fuckwit hat.

My husband and I could only sit in openmouthed wonder at the person who would have worn this out of the house. Or even in it, for that matter.

i am reporting myself.
when i'm in a time pinch i usually just don't care at all what i'm wearing but this was horrible, even for me.

get your mental eyeballs ready for a fright site. ready? ok...

bright green terry fleece track pants, the low-waisted fitted kind, with one back pocket and white piping down the sides. white shirt with navy raglan sleeves and an unknown band logo. sweater hoodie of red, blue and grey stripes. black fun fur winter coat with huge hairy collar. tan sandals with the toe thingy, you know the kind, that neccesitated red yellow orange and blue toe socks that only have one toe pocket for the big toe. in hot pink, the toe pocket that is. i don't even know what to call that outfit. what can i say? i was in a big hurry and it was colder out than i thought. i layered up in what was handy.
AND not only was i out in public in this get up, i had to stop by my work (at the BANK!!!) to pick up something that i forgot. yes, the bank manager and my co-workers saw me, yes, they think that i am a lunatic. so do i.

1) woman in trendy ice-cream shop wearing pajama bottoms with ralph lauren polo player logos all over them. trying to impress the guy that joined her (brown hair longish, bandanna on his head, gold wire rimmed glasses) by making fun of me for nodding to the funky rap music that was getting blasted over our heads, prompting me to say to my boyfriend "Bob! I sure wish I wore my designer pajamas today!"

Ack.

Then, as I was going to work and headed up the stairs of the subway, a heavy, sticky honeysuckle scent came down, which I realized was not the actual plant but the perfume of the bright-red-from-head to toe-wearing, hideously blondined woman ahead of me.

My eyes focused on her boots, which were like the heavy duty biker/engineer boots that are being knocked off by designers now for a lot more money, except they had the straps and ring along with a wobbly kitten heel and a fringed tassel on the outside edge of each foot, AND were too short to be the real thing -- neither knee nor ankle length but that very unflattering in between length.

And what looked to be cheap fake leather because they were very thick and had huge wrinkles swarming in every direction all over it. the topper was when she got to my building, plopped herself on a ledge outside, and started blowing out puffs of smoke between her very red lips with an arrogant air, and showing her badly cropped, bleach damaged, black at the roots boy crop hair.

She gave me this look like "I am the shit!!"

It's like -- yes, you certainly are.
