Does this make me look pudgy?

November 9, 2009

Well, it’s that time again, Miss Anderson. Gotta get the winter wardrobe in shape, ready or not, eh? That’s when it’s good to have a great tailor like you…

This is my favorite outfit. I put on a couple of pounds over the summer, but I don’t think it shows, do you?

Be honest, do you think this red jacket is a little too snug? Good, I don’t either! I just won’t fasten every single button.

Now for these trousers. Looks like the giant moths got to ’em up in the attic, I’m afraid. Is it obvious there’s a whole leg missing?

Fudge! What can we do about that so people won’t notice it?

I’ve got it! Can you make me a white legging thingy to wear, and print JEALOUSY in big black letters? That’ll be perfect!

Oh, and Mrs. Anderson, I found this bunch of old knitting needles up in the attic, too. I hate to throw them away. See if you can make ’em part of the outfit somehow, okay?

Holiday parties, here I come!

Basler, are there no male models in such shows? How come you dont put up their pics?
You know, if I could see their pics, then maybe, just MAYBE, this fashion would be bearable…

It seems like the leggy thingy should say SUICIDE. One false move with her arm and she could put her eye out at least. Not to mention what she could do to people close by. She already got the poor woman in the very back.

Functional too. Easy access for open heart surgery.

Perhaps I do not have any fashion sense, I just can’t feel this dress make any practical sense.

BK, Bob’s fashion blogs arent for people with a practical sense of fashion… and that’s the reason most of his readers are on medication… We wouldnt be able to handle this with our meds…
Sorry, just donated my last dose of Prozac.. am feeling the pain…

CAM, I agree with you, it does look practical for heart and other types of chest surgery. It even provides for support material in case the gurneys are not actually present.

Shra, sorry, can’t help you there… I’m only on Lithium and Clozapine these days… Prozac was a little bland for me. But I’m sure we can find other readers who can share part of their stock ith yoU!

Sadly, the model drowned shortly after this show, when she tried to take a nap on a water bed.
