... Let me be perfectly clear; leggings are not mother flipping pants. Everybody needs to just stop. Now. They are not pants. They have never been nor will they ever be pants. Not pants. Not pants. No pantalones. Because this is what happens when allow leggings to be worn as pants... You have just had your eyes assaulted by something called meggings. What kind of man buys these things? Does he have some raiding to do in the forests of Nottingham or is he just looking for that … [Read more...]

Go Home Fashion, You’re Drunk…

... Ah, Chanel. The quintessential standard of fashion, elegance, and style. Remember when most women owned that one staple Chanel dress or jacket and accessorized it with string of elegant pearls to look proper, demure and classy? Yeah well... Those days are gone. And what is it with Fashion forgetting it's pants lately. … [Read more...]

Ruby Red Slippers, The Story of The Popes Shoes…

Esquire_2007

... They are not a fashion statement. And no, they're not Prada either. What have I said repeatedly about the Church... everything is done for a reason. In 2007 Esquire, being secular stupid, dubbed Pope Benedict "Accessorizer of The Year" for his ruby red slippers, thinking them just another fashionable style signature - like a tie clip or pocket square. As if. So what's the real story behind the shoes that have inspired so much curiosity? They are not Prada. The papal shoemaker … [Read more...]

Every Girl’s Crazy About A Sharped Dressed Man…

... You want to know why I desperately hated Shirley MacLaine's Downton Abbey character, Martha Levinson? Because she embodies the reason why people warned me to introduce myself as Canadian when traveling abroad. She was the stereotypical obnoxious American caricature, right down to the social inappropriateness. I mean really! She ate like she'd never seen food before and talked with her mouth full. I hope she never returns on the show. Speaking of never returning to the show, I just … [Read more...]

Leggings Are Not Pants …

Olivia Wilde seen here out shopping in Venice, CA,

... and in case I wasn't clear; leggings are not pants. No, they are not. Not pants. No pantalones. If you think they are, you might be an attention whore. NOT PANTS! Also, a shirt dress is not a dress. It has the word "shirt" in it which means it's not a real dress. Allow me reiterate for the sake of clarity. Shirt Dress ≠ Dress. This is commonly referred to as being out in public half naked. And yes, you still might be an attention whore. … [Read more...]

they make specific outer-wear for a reason – so you won’t have to show up for church looking like you just came back from milking the cows…

Ausstellung "Fashion Passion" in Sao Paulo

... There is never an excuse, ever, for a lady to don the denim or plaid jumper. Yes, I understand the functionality of the jumper; you can farm, garden, herd cattle, and chop wood simultaneously while nursing a set of twins in a sling. I've heard this is the jumper's main appeal. It is sturdy, washable, inexpensive and stain resistant. But so is a burlap sack. If you advocate a jumper for it's functionality while doing chores and chasing children then why on earth would a women want to … [Read more...]

all this talk about what ladies should wear, how about we address the fashion faux pas committed by modern males everywhere – the forty year old frat boy attire…

Judging from various comments received here and articles circulating the internet, it would seem gentlemen too have quite a bit to say on the topic of ladies fashion, what they prefer and what they consider appropriate. Pat Archbold writes an interesting piece about the loss of "pretty" and "innocence" in favor of "hot" and "trampy". It's a great piece; pop over and check it out. While I am not debating his thoughts on the matter, thoughts that I totally agree with, I want to expand on them … [Read more...]

my first purchase…

twiggy in a cloche hat

... a cloche hat. I'm actually a week into my skirts only experiment and so far there's nothing extraordinary to report. I'm used to wearing skirt suits to work and skirts to church so not wearing trousers hasn't been a noticeable inconvenience. Plus the weather has been incredibly mild, albeit rainy. Otherwise, it's been pretty much my regular dress routine. I'm sorry I don't have any anecdotes or more exciting news to share. I know. Yawn. The most exciting thing that has happened … [Read more...]

Fun with a fashion, 30 days of dressing like a girl…

... Pretty. Pretty. Pretty. I would love to dress like that all time. Well, maybe not all the time. I suppose it would be terribly impracticable. However, everyone dressed like that at one time and it was practical enough then. They certainly are pretty dresses and it seems because of the show Downton Abbey women may be taking an interest in more feminine fashions now. There is one particular lady who has been dressing like this for years. It's an interesting enough article … [Read more...]
