I was at coffee today with my boyfriend when I saw a very harsh fashion flop. This girl came in wearing some gray pinstripe slacks, and a light blue sweater. A blue sweater might have been ok to try and match the blue in the stripe, but not the kind where there’s large blue puff bobbles at the end of the ties that tie at the neck. And to top it off she was wearing a cream colored jacket with the fur around the hood. I can say her hair wasn’t completely ugly….. maybe..
Then another girl came in. What the crap?!
Now-I have to say she really looked a lot older than me. I dont know how old she really was, but the go-go dancer makeup could have been the cause. Then she’s got these low-rider hip huggers on, (way to tight), and some short tight shirt and jacket. Then she had her looooong hair in Maryanne (Gilligan’s Island) pig tails, and sporting a mesh truckers cap. And to top off her dazzling outfit she had these very ugly flat silver shoes on. SILVER!
Now, I will never claim to be a fashion diva or anything, but when people are getting dressed in the morning, how can they think the combination is anything they should put on? I mean silver shoes? Maybe at prom or a big New Years bash or something, but not with your tight pants and pig tails.
My boyfriend said I had an obligation to go help them and I declined. But wished my sisters were there to help me rip on these people.
Now- my sisters and I have shared in some fashion horror sightings. And I have to say that only my sisters will understand the urgency for women all over to think about their choice of outfits before walking out of the house. But then again- who will we make fun of then? And yes- I know we’re going to hell for making fun of people, but at least its tropical there.
Ladies- maybe check your look in the mirror before you leave. Know what styles you like, and what looks good on you. Some people can wear a number of different styles, but not everyone can pull that off. Don’t walk out of the house with so much makeup on that you look like youre going to a halloween party, or that youre taking a break from street walking. And please, when you hit a certain age pig tails are no longer something you are allowed to do- unless you and your guy are getting frisky….. but lets not go there! Lets leave pig tails for the little girls.
And if youre still not sure about any of this… please at least brush your hair before you leave the house, and hire a fashion consultant.
