A few very ugly things have crossed my fashion radar, or as I like to call it. My Fadar.
First up we have something very ugly which I first saw way back at the beginning of this summer season. So horrendous is this item of shoe, I found myself compelled to take a photo of it and post it on Facebook. As you do.
At first I had to look away. So horrible the image. Are these sandals or are these boots? Well they look like a bit of both. I like to call them BOOTALS. Or "Boots with Ventilation". They are great if you have really bad ankles and really nice toes and really nice heels. They look like you hollowed out a possom and put your feet through them and cut out holes for your toes and your heels.
On posting this image on Facebook everyone agreed "Horrible Things". "Yes I hate them too". Then my cousin announced. "I have a pair of them". Shit. Hello to Lisa if you are reading this.
Next up we have something I found in the Target catalogue today.
Here we have a lovely model with some very bad shorts. With an exposed pocket.
AN EXPOSED POCKET. WTF?
Underneath the picture it says "Exposed pocket lining". Righto so that it what that dangly thing is hanging from her shorts.
If I saw this lady and didn't know any better I would tap her on her shoulder and announce "Excuse me lady. I can see your pocket".
Hello!? Isn't the inside bit of the pocket something that should not be visible from the outside? It should serve it's purpose and be undetectable. What happens when you fill this pocket with stuff? It's going to bulge out below the short hem. And that's just a bit yuck.
Are we so out of fashion ideas that we must make, sell and purchase shorts with an exposed pocket? What next? Clothing with the lining on the outside? Jackets with pockets pulled out like teepees? Shoes with soles on the upside? Knickers with the bum bit at the front? Bras with an underwire that pokes through your t-shirt?
I'm sorry. Is it just me or all this bordering insanity? What do you think?
