Twice the shame, twice the idiocy…
As a blogger who watches stupid fashions all over the world, I’ve always been happy about one thing. No matter how dumb an outfit is, I only have to see it once.
Until this week, that is. Spotting the outfit on the left, from New York, I set it aside to think of a way to express my contempt. Four days later I’m looking at photos from Madrid, and THERE IT IS AGAIN!
For sure, it’s a match. Same leotards and shoes, same scarlet jacket lining, same plaid culottes or whatever you call them, same cartoon character white gloves….
Only the models themselves are different. I presume the one in the first photo hasn’t yet sensed the audience reaction.
But there is trepidation on the face of the second guy, who must have heard through the model grapevine that the New York crowd heckled and threw stinging Jolly Rancher hard candies that had to be surgically removed.
Then I had another thought, and my blood ran cold.
What if there are hundreds of these “creations,” or THOUSANDS?
What if the designer has tapped into a trend, and when I go to the office tomorrow I’ll be the only one NOT wearing this crapola?
And BTW, what if I’m really that Levi Johnston guy?
