With the unseasonably warm weather we’re having comes it’s no surprise many of us have had to dig out our summer clothes. However, many people forget this is April, not August, and have plunged headfirst into the deep end of the bad fashion pool. For starters, everyone has unearthed their Croc sandals and are proudly wearing them for all to see. Now, if you’ve read any of my past entires you know how I feel about these abominations to fashion so I won’t waste time again here. Let’s just say they are better suited for the vegetable garden not the Olive Garden. Second, the warmer it gets the less clothing people tend to wear. It’s a normal thing as we all want to stay cool. However, there’s a limit to what I need to see on a daily basis. If you’re going to take time to dig out your sandals, then take time for a pedicure. If you can’t paint your toenails at least trim them and clean out any dirt around or under them. Ick! Also, I’m sure many of you are very proud of your tattoos. Fine with me; it’s your choice. However, I don’t need to see your lower back or hipbone tattoo every time you leave the house. I don’t care how great your body is, let’s keep abdominal nakedness to a minimum. Halters have made a rabid reappearance on the streets and runways over the past few years and I like most of the styles I see. I don’t like the fact that the lingerie industry has not provided proper foundations for most women to wear these. Or maybe it’s that most women choose not to wear a proper bra underneath their halters. I think it’s probably a combination of the two. Shelf bras sewn into camis and halters are not substitutes for proper foundation garments. There, I said it.
I think I’ll step down from my fashion soapbox now. I just needed to get a few things off my chest.
