What Not To Wear Plus

The other day I watched something like three episodes of "What Not To Wear."  I mean, who doesn't love a good makeover?

The next day I got sucked in to shopbop.com.  Like a train wreck, I couldn't look away.  Everything was on sale: mostly leggings, wrap sweaters and eight inch stiletto open-toe boots.  Not practical for my lifestyle.

I think Stacey and Clinton would say NO to these:

Caterpillar legs
 Simply ick
 I have never understood the appeal of the droopy drawers look
 This is pretty I guess but flatters no one
 Uh...
 These would go well with the sack of denim above
 She looks good in this but nobody else would.  Also, for hardcore clubbers only.
 Very fancy, expensive garbage bag. Hefty Hefty Hefty!
 I can't despise this look enough.  I can't tell if there's camel toe going on there or if the shorts are just distressed to look like there is.  Also, your pockets belong inside your pants.
 Just no.  Okay, maybe if you're eight years old and you made it yourself.


Here's the "Plus" part I mentioned in the title.  This look I like.  I'd wear that.

These crack me up.  They're the kind of thing that I think is so ridiculous that I try it on and then decide I love them.  They're so "Barbarella."  

I had a hair stylist once in the late nineties, early aughts who had never seen "Barbarella."  I think that's a crime for someone in a style profession.  If you haven't seen it either, head over to Netflix immediately.  It's very entertaining and it won't hurt your head.

I went to Last Comic Standing last night in Northampton. This was funnier. I mean that.

I like how the models look like they also hate the clothes. I found your blog using the "next blog" feature and thoroughly enjoy it.

Thanks! I've only ever found porn using the "next blog" feature. Maybe I'll try it again.
