Aren't Highwaters a Bad Thing? (aka Have Mental Patients Taken over the Fashion World??)

I've always wanted to be more fashionable than I am. However, the fact that I abhor shopping (and yes, I was born a woman) coupled with my general lack of money leaves me with maybe a few "going out" ensembles in a giant sea of blah-wear. If anyone wants to nominate me for a What Not To Wear makeover, I'm all for it. But there is one trend that Stacy and Clinton better dare not try to push on me: the inexplicable marriage of capris and boots.

I love capris (and pedal pushers). I love boots. When I see them together, I HATE. I mean, it actually pisses me off to the point where I want to go up to the girl wearing them, shake her violently and scream, "What is wrong with you??? Do you SEE what you're wearing?? Forget what Vogue says, can you honestly look at yourself and tell me that you look normal??? AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!" I feel like I'm losing my mind. How has this look become acceptable? No, no...more than just acceptable. The HOT look for fall. I don't get it. I can even understand short shorts with boots. That at least makes sense. And you know, when I find hooker-wear more reasonable than what's supposedly "in," something is very wrong.

I'm sorry if I'm offending any of you ladies out there who like or wear this look....

No I'm not. I'm not sorry. It's stupid. It's like embracing "floods." The floods just got shorter and the boots got higher. I won't be surprised if pairing hot pants with waders is next fall's rage.

hahaha...I can't wear those short pants AT ALL!
I think it makes even the skinniest of girls look heavier!

I hate shopping too. I hate fashion. I just like to wear what looks good on me and forget the latest trends.

Yep - this is a really bad look.

There will always be two things in life and one of them is bad fashion.

Even though it's not what the character wore, something about that look strikes me as being very Pippi Longstocking.

Maybe if they do their hair up in pigtails gone wrong and...voila!

I'm right there with you on the "not shopping" thing, and I was born a woman, too... well, actually, I was born female and haven't grown up yet - same thing, I suppose.

Can't we just love ourselves and be happy to not be "in style"? It would make my life that much easier...

I agree. To me, this fashion choice seems as bad as men wearing shorts, knee-socks and sandals.

However, just about all the fashions right now are bothering the heck out of me. The amount of crack I see daily from the low-rise pants is frightening, particularly when not everyone is a size 3. Also, the roll of pudge hanging over the tops of these pants is repulsive. All I can say is that I'm thankful the cold weather is quickly approaching because we really need to put more clothes on a lot of the people I see daily. Ugh.

Lately I've been seeing all these girls walking around downtown with their jeans rolled midway up their calves. And big ugly fat rolls too, not little thin 80's tuck and rolls.

Combo the up the calf look with the white flip flops and I'm scratching my head looking for a flood. WTF?



Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
