I’m not sure why, but that is the first word that pops into my head every time I see this.

I want to say dress your age, but frankly, I can’t think of any age that could make this fit okay.  It looks like a reanimated llama is attacking her shoulders.


Sparkly Sheer Lacy Mess

October 27, 2009


Really sorry for the blurry pic – I was in a rush (as always these days), but I just had to show you this one.  I think the mess shines through.

Someone please explain this one to me.  Because, I cannot, for the life of me, fathom WHY

And I really can’t decide which part of this “outfit” is the worst…

Ummm, this is NOT how you exfoliate your toes. 

[Another great guest submission, which came with commentary:  “The question is – why did I see her toes first and her shoes second when she was actually walking in front of me??? smdh!”]

Halloween in July?

July 7, 2009


Nothing says “summer” quite like the jack-o-lantern with velvet look.   And no jack-o-lantern is complete without a grotesque smile, which can be achieved quite effectively by wearing too-small pants to highlight a prominent gunt.

(I was initially going to say “seasonal fail,” but there is never a time of the season for this mess.)

Off-day midrift

June 16, 2009


I generally refrain from putting up people on what are blatantly off-days, like airports and studying.  This was clearly the latter.  But there are exceptions to every rule.  Now I understand (even if I don’t approve of)  just throwing some bullshit on to run get coffee.  (I mean, how much harder would it have been to put jeans on?)

This girl, on the other hand, took it too far.  Not only by wearing everything too small and too tight.  But by then also REPEATEDLY adjusting her shirt and pants to make sure her “midrift” was showing.  Every time her shirt threatened to cover her, she fastidiously stopped to pull it up to make sure at least 2 inches of skin was exposed.

NOT okay.

Spanx & Spangles

April 20, 2009


Two tips:  1) If your skirt doesn’t cover your Spanx, don’t wear it (I have a feeling wearing it sans Spanx may not have been an option here).   2)  If you can’t afford sequins for both sides of your dress, maybe it is best to abstain.

And lest anyone thinks I am being unfair, this was not taken as she was about to adjust her dress.  This was taken after she had already pulled it down.  It started off much worse.

An Udder Mess

March 26, 2009


Sorry, couldn’t help the bad pun – The juxtaposition was just too much for me  😀

This is the first of the Spain pictures.  I realize she is likely a tourist, so I am getting it out of the way first before we get to the local hot messes lol.

Ummm, excuse me, ma’am?  How do I tell you this… You forgot to put a shirt on.  You should probably go home and do that.  While you are there, a whole new outfit would not be a bad idea.
