Is it any wonder?

any more? Is it any wonder Snooki, for instance, thinks fur boots go with short shorts? Is it 
any wonder that  in terms of fashion, I'm totally confused?

 I have seen countless couture shows and magazine pieces which show the model with her hair totally frizzed and dry looking. I have seen countless commercials on shampoos that propose to do away with this totally awful style.
I've seen the new feather inserts in the hair. I guess it was only a matter of time someone took it way too far.
 After the Royal Wedding and the Princess hat, I don't think this is much of a surprise. I do think running around in this sort of stuff when not performing is sort of overdoing it. A lot.
I am not able to do anything about any of these things. They happen in the same world we all live in. And I remember when grown ups worried because Elvis Presley moved his hips.

So many

So many times I have heard "You can never be too rich or too thin." So many times. They were wrong.

Designers, oh my! part one

 As usual, Dior makes a splash(mess) on the runway. I'm having trouble looking at the pictured fashions with a straight face. This is the Haute Couture collection. That essentially means that only women of great means will be able to purchase the fashions. They will then wear them to fancy dress affairs. With a straight face. The first offering I dub "The Tulle Tale".
 This offering from Dior Is my idea of wrapping something in newspaper and wrapping paper. I dub this one "Poorly Wrapped".
 Above is my idea of what to do with multi-colored garbage bags. I dub this one "Taking Out The Trash"
Many gifts come wrapped in these colors, done in tissue paper. I dub this one "Save The Wrapping Paper" because it can be reused.

My daughter and I disagree on these fashions to an extent. I say they are really strange. The hair, make-up and accessories all go to make the fashion feel somewhat other than real. And to me they could only be worn by really thin people because otherwise the added volume of fabric would make the average woman look fat. Not a good thing.

Tacky, Tacky, Tacky

 Tacky number one. Wearing a T with her own name and lips on it.
Tacky number two. The shoes. Ugh, the shoes.
Tacky number three. Lacy Victorian dress with heavy black boots that look wintry.

Though you may disagree with me, the pics above are all about making the wrong choices.
