PET PEEVES #2 - CALL THE FASHION POLICE

I support anyone expressing who they are through fashion. Some people aren't afraid to make a fashion statement and develop a keen fashion sense that's bold and unique.  Those people aren't a cookie cutter version of the next person in a crowd.  Those are the people who truly get a tip of my hat and a standing ovation as well. 

But sometimes people carry their right to wear whatever they want to a little too far. It nauseates me when anyone exhibits absolutely no taste or self respect by dressing like they have no brain cells or eyesight.  For example, when I see a woman wearing short shorts with the cheeks of her derrière hanging out and her love handles flapping to the wind for everyone to see, it makes me want to ask her if she owns a mirror.  Any size woman can look good by wearing clothes that flatter her figure, but ladies, COVER THAT STUFF UP!  It's not sexy!  It's not cool!  And it certainly doesn't look good!  Just because you have it doesn't mean you have to flaunt it.  No one wants to see your fat ass except maybe your boyfriend or your husband (or both)!  And if you're a friend or family member of someone who dresses that way, do them a HUGE favor and tell them they look horrible.  Here's a golden opportunity to be honest and to do the rest of the world a huge favor as well.

  1. I wouldn't say boo to her...she might deck me. Just buy some extra strength sunglasses and try not to look in that direction.

    1. LOL! Now, Now! She might be a perfectly sweet individual whose clothes shrunk in the dryer!

  2. Oh dear. That isn't about fashion. It is about not creating a public nausea inducing spectacle. And comfort - because I refuse to believe that it is comfortable. Sigh. I am cowardly though and wouldn't comment to a stranger - and fortunately don't get faced with those uglinesses in people I know.

    1. I hate this "public nausea inducing spectacle" as much as the guys who have their pants hanging to their knees. I think it's called "sagging".

  4. When I see something like this, I often wonder what that person was thinking. There is nothing wrong with her body, it is the clothes she chooses to show it off.

    1. They're not thinking and most people who dress like this think they have something to flaunt...talk about distorted body image!
