It's a one-up world

Who wore it better? I see that question and it sort of upsets me. With this outfit which I think is just plain ugly it so doesn't matter to me who wore it better. But in this world success is more and more measured by things like that. Kim Kardashian swears she will outdo the Royal wedding. What a terrible waste of money and time. What's wrong with getting married because you love the other person and not to make yourself look (better?). I am amazed at how short a time the money spent on one thing or another is really remembered by most people and yet they consistently try to outdo each other.

I was looking at some pics of Lady Gaga. Some of the comments put her down as a Madonnawannabe.
So tell me. Was Elton a Madonnawannabe. Was David Bowie? So we have a lot of performers who make dressing weird a part of their act. Gee, anybody remember Kiss? I'm not a great fan of either Madonna or Gaga. But I really abhor the need to make one's fave better by putting down others. Why can't we just say Gaga is Gaga and Madonna is Madonna? I like or don't like one or the other and leave it at that.

When Michelle Obama stepped out in sleeveless dresses, many were all over it. The First Lady shouldn't wear sleeveless dresses. I am asking not only why not but why, exactly, does it matter? Is a person from us regular folks more able to be a fashion arbiter than the First Lady? Just sayin.

We make judgements about people all of the time without knowing anything about why they are doing something. Scarjo and Sean Penn are an example. Who's to say who is too old or young for someone else? And I hark back to Brad Angie Jennifer. I am a firm believer that one woman cannot take a man away from another woman if he adores her. So why are people still taking sides on an issue that was over years ago? Witness the Team Angie and Team Jenn.

I am afraid that part of the reasoning behind these behaviors is that we don't value ourselves enough. We try to attach our feelings of self-worth to others. After many many many years of doing that I see that it just doesn't work. Sooner or later, we have to look in the mirror and see what's really there without the filters of other people's accomplishments or popularity.

For myself, I think the Royal wedding was beautiful but I wonder if the cost of that and the honeymoon was just too much in this economic times. I think Gaga is just that, Gaga. If Scarjo and Sean Penn are happy, why try to bring them down with judgements? Time usually takes care of those things anyway. If people want to compare outfits, let that happen on a level playing field and not be a popularity thing. If you are going to get married, do it for love and now for the show. I think I'm saying "Get real".

The year of the mess. I hope it's over soon. Jessica could use a comb. There is also a need for a stylist. And the last pic needs to go away. A goddess? I don't think so.

I would like to present a list of things I don't get. Or I don't like. Or I find just bad.

1.  See through garments look like advertising to me. The ones that the skirt is totally see through from the butt down except for a little lace look like unfinished garments. I think they are an obvious way to make people look at the body underneath. If you have good legs, get a short skirt. It's more real.

2.  Combs and brushes work well on messy hair. I don't like and have never liked messy hair. Or 2 inch dark roots. I think it is saying I don't care how my hair looks. Disrespectful. A woman's hair can add so much to an outfit. And windblown hair looks wonderful. But the just hopped out of bed look is not a good one.

3.  Mixing prints can be a good thing. But I see a lot of mixing that puts prints together and make the wearer look like they got dressed in a dark closet. Sorry, there is a limit to print mixing. They need to relate to each other in some way.

4.  Scarves, especially big ones, are all the rage right now. And I see them wrapped around girls necks with tank tops, shorts, sandals. I miss the point. Mixing seasons is also seen when someone wears a sweater, jacket and sandals or flip flops. Feet warm, neck and upper body cold. What's with that?

5.  For the last thing I'll complain about today I'll focus on shoes. Boots with the toes out? Heels with huge platforms. Especially the ones where the whole toe of the shoe is covered. Can anyone say Frankenstein's wife? Here is a little girl with really tiny skinny legs and those platforms add many inches to her height but end up making her feet look huge. I just don't get it. And I often wonder how they walk in them. I've seen models fall. The average girl is walking with danger in some of those shoes.

I'll let the gritching end here. See you next time.

She found it

Is Bryse Dallas Howard with child?

Curiouser and Curiouser

Is orange the new skin color this year? And why does Shauna Sand need a publicist? And I have to say this is the first time I've seen her in clothing that you can see through like window glass.


I hope I'm not offending anyone. But on top of the fact that this dress is ugly, the things under it don't match.

And you know, I used to want to lose so much weight I would look like I'd been sick. Changed my mind.

We age

Our clothes shouldn't be so aging.

you too can look like you have no curves.

The dress is really pretty

But why would anyone want to wear a dress too tight to walk in?

These are two examples of proof positive that fit is inportant. Beyonce wore a dress that was too tight. Had trouble walking. Eva's dress is way too loose. It makes her look lost in the fabric. I'm wondering if they tried these garments on before going out in the.

Just a comment or 3

I think Christina Ricci is adorable. And isn't this just the dress Wednesday Adams would wear as an adult.

The fashion folks have spoken well about Blakes dress but I think it is a cross between Caesar and Cleopatra. Not my thing.

Frida has a nice figure. But the dress? shouldn't be on it.

Naomi, can you say overdone?

From a distance the trim on MJ Bliges dress reminds me of the things we used to make with gum wrappers.

Don't you just love having someone say nasty things about celebs. After all they are often nasty about each other.
