Jeans, Jeans and more

After going  on and on about jeans, denim, etc. I found more oddities to focus on. The left hand pic, of you know who, features a look that MSN style said we need to get rid of. I didn't say it first. They did. And oh, the rebellion of it all. Hair bands loved acid wash, slashed, really tight jeans. Well guess what! Everything old is new again. Except not in acid wash. And to the right is the requisite dangling pocket. I found it on the list of MSN's least favorites too. In this case, with winter boots. Weird.

To the left now we find another of the MSN no no list. The jeans that are cut so low the majority of the front is exposed. I'm thinking the back is probably the same way. This is just another way to be mostly naked and I think the idea is to make yourself look sexy. I always thought it a good idea to keep some things for intimate moments. But then I have never made and marketed a sex tape.
The final pic is of a new pair of something. It is denim. There is a slight resemblance to jeans. And I just don't know what they are for if not to advertise. Maybe they are part of a bikini. If not, I'm just not sure what to do with them. It would be necessary to sit very carefully so as not to expose private things.

I have nothing against jeans. I wish I were built to fit well into jeans. I wish I were young enough to wear them all the time. But I'm still trying to be a little classy. A little elegant. I've seen many outfits with jeans that are classy and elegant. But I have never seen the things in the pics here looking anything but classless. I'll admit that this is totally my idea. I'll admit that I'm put off by the need of some young women to show their private parts to the public. I'll admit I am somewhat behind the times but this is what I see and I'm not sure the world is ready for so much frankness. It is hard to understand why men assault women and I know sexual assaults are not about sex. But when the manner of dress becomes blatant in its attempt to attract, I see a mixed message. Ogle me, drool a bit, fantasize, and respect me as a woman.

This may offend some folks. I'm sorry. I have granddaughters who see this stuff. I see in the news that sexual assaults are on the rise. I worry.


  1. OMG-is that a piece of actual clothing??

  2. The last image is very good for a fashion editorial and the beach with a great cover up top!
