Yes. It is a code. It means "I am an asshat who doesn't own a mirror."

Okay, no one ever speaks about this or mentions it on this thread but I MUST say something because I'm seeing more and more of this particular male fashion "trend" and I feel I must try to stop it.

Men are braiding their beards. Specifically, some men are just growing beards on their chins alone, and then allowing the hair to reach Samsonian lengths. And then they are braiding the beard.

And then they appear publically, wearing the braided, usually thick and greying, beard. Is this meant to signify something, like a code? How can we make it stop?

Hehe, I hardly ever come in this thread, unless I saw something really bad.

It was a late 30's-early 40's woman, with a short, awful haircut that reminded me of someone from New Kids On the Block-really short and sleek around the sides and neckline, longer and styled on top. She was wearing one of those awful, frumpy poly/cotton blend turtlenecks, white with some flowery print on it, with a thick, wool plaid jacket over it-a big, bold, gray/black and white plaid-it was an eyesore against the flowery turtleneck. And, of course, a classic pair of Mom Jeans, too short, socks exposed, with sensible white gym shoes. Oh, shudder..

new years party last night

thin woman wearing a halter top with an open back that put her back fat on display for all to see. If you have rolls of back fat may I suggest that you NOT wear a backless shirt so that I am not distracted by the trainwreck that is your back fat. Please and thankyou

I went to a game night thing with a friend of mine. I'd never met the girl giving it before. Seeing her was like looking at my friends in 1988. High waisted tapered "Mom" jeans, tucked in plaid shirt, collar up. Bobbed hair, big Sally Jessy glasses. Egad.

I saw the most terrible mullet yesterday. About an inch long all over (and teased within an inch of its life) but for a patch at the back which was about six inches long and in a ponytail. *shudder*

I felt really sorry for her kids though - letting your preteen daughter wear skimpy shirt-dresses then NOT teaching her that having one leg on the table and the other on the floor is a bad look, is not the best.

Flipflops...miniskirt...and legwarmers...?

Okay, now I don't feel so bad about wearing a denim mini with generic Uggs...I actually came in here to report myself, you know, but REALLY, now!

aw! i went to school with leslie and half the lys. gemsweater is such a brilliant idea.

cof: at the airport! woman, late twenties or early thirties, quite attractive, blonde wavy hair, hot boyfriend........in a ONE PIECE LONG SLEEVED HOODED PINK VELOUR ROMPER with gray striped rib on the cuffs and at the (terribly defined and high) waist. as if this alone was not bad enough, she was clearly not wearing a bra and she clearly could not get away with this act. having your bare nipples brush against the seam of the waist ribbing on your hideous one piece long sleeved hooded pink velour romper is not only, i would imagine, painful, it is also incredibly unflattering.

I have also spotted the mini-skirt, leg warmers worn with flip flops outfit. Is this new? And if so why?

I saw a high school girl with flip flops too. With legwarmers, a ruffly jeans miniskirt, and some sort of heavy winter top.

Someone told me that long underwear (possibly leggings) and shorts were a very effective way to keep warm and dry while hiking, the jester hats not required.

Could someone please tell me why anyone would be wearing flip-flops in Minnesota at this time of the year? I saw a college-aged girl (with teased-to-death hair and inch-thick makeup) wearing them outside today.

Oh, Possum! That sounds like regular attire in a mt. town. When we go to the hot springs we sit in the local brewery just to watch the guys bundled up in their shorts & tights. Usually topped off with a jaunty jesters hat.

Shorter, rounder woman in Harley-Davidson black leather jacket, Harley-Davidson tee-shirt, black running shorts, white socks and sneakers.
Why is there always someone wearing shorts in Chicago in December?

Seen at a bookstore last night:

Man, 50-ish. Long, gray. stringy ponytail. Khaki, fisherman's style hat.

Flannel orange/blue/brown striped shirt, two sizes two big. Baggy navy blue hiking shorts, also way too big.

BLACK LEGGINGS. White athletic socks. Hiking boots.


Aiyee. I couldn't take my eyes off it.

Woman on the subway: Black leather (probably pleather) tight pants, green socks over white socks, pulled straight up, white sneakers with velcro straps, a short sleaved orange blazer with gold buttons over a long sleaved, textured pleatherish shirt. At first I thought that maybe it was a really disturbing attempt to be festive, but the orange doesn't fit that theory.

Twice yesterday I saw someone wearing two different shoes. Please don't tell me that's a new fad: Punky Brewster-chic.

I'm a fashion crime right now as I am covered in fleece clothing, but I live in, what I believe to be, the coldest house on the planet. It's warmer outside right now than it is in this glacial little palace I call home.

I was a fashion crime today in my pea-green terry track suit and white tee shirt. But I was comfy, and I only left the house to run to the corner store.

It does indeed cover my arse (baring the ass of leggings is as wrong as wrong can be, it's the most sinful thing ever). If it's a tunic dress then, reasonably, it should be of suitable dress length and arses shouldn't factor into the equation otherwise it's a tunic top and should be worn with trousers. what were these poor, tasteless girls thinking?
