Lookin’ hot out here in the Styx

fashion-black-2-180.jpgBlog Guy, I have an unusual fashion problem.

I work in Hell. Oh, don’t seem so surprised. It’s a service industry just like anything else! We greet the newcomers, stoke the fires, cook the Brussels sprouts, and so on.

I want clothes that fit with the mood, but still let me have a social life. Outfits that say, “Welcome to eternal damnation, do you know anybody looking for a fun time?”

Sure! I get the statement you want to make. It’s like, “I’m Lady Death, but hey, I have a whimsical side, too!” I think some creations from this Paris show would be perfect for you.

Why aren’t I smiling? I am smiling. This is how we smile in hell. By the way, what the hell are you smiling about?

Didn’t Edward Gorey write about this collection?

A is for Annie who tripped on her dress,
B is for Bella, attacked by the press.

Or maybe he just designed it.

Where’s the accordions? Where are the dentist/proctologists? The man-thongs? Sudoku? 60 minutes? O’Donnel? Chartreuse? The pidgeons? Cilantro? Marzipan? Hillary and Bill? Gridlock? Dockers? New Jersyites? Where’s friggin’ Burger King? Are you absolutely certain this is Hell?

It is an amazing thing that the Japanese get French fashion and vice versa.
