Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
I blog a lot about bad fashion, and readers often ask what’s the worst outfit I’ve ever seen. You know, like one where I’d swallow a cyanide pill rather than wear it.
To tell you the truth, I’m not even sure how you would describe this creation to the police, like if terrorists made you put it on.
It’s time again for Fashion Mailbag, where we solve readers’ unusual wardrobe dilemmas.
See, when I asked you to be my WINGMAN, that’s what I meant! I didn’t want you to show up bare-chested, with fricking WINGS on your back like an escapee from a cheesy Nativity scene at some male models’ Christmas party!
Hey Blog Guy, it seems like you’re always sort of making fun of fashion models. Why don’t you just once listen to what they have to say, and learn something?
Avast, fashion design staff, this be a genuine crisis!
For years we’ve featured pirate-themed fashions in our shows, and we’ve made millions from big-spenders who thought the piracy thing was romantic and exotic.
Now, thanks to a couple of incidents overseas someplace, the whole world is about to see that real pirates don’t dress like we thought. Do I have to remind you what kind of inventory wastage we’re looking at here?
Is it just me, or does anybody else notice something disturbing about these photos?
A few days ago I did a very popular post on what appeared to be a fashion trend, a dress that leaves one breast exposed, so the woman has to cover it with her hand. I saw some flaws in the idea, and there was plenty of reader discussion about it.
Blog Guy, it’s me again. The guy you’re tutoring to be a photojournalist. Recently you told me about shooting auto shows, and how all people want to see are the chick models. But I presume motorcycle shows are different – surely readers want to see new motorcycles?
Yeah, and surely Bernie Madoff is looking forward to meeting his new roommate, too.
Blog Guy, I love your fashion coverage, but please write more about accessories.
You’re right. As the lady in “Steel Magnolias” said, “The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.” This season, it’s garden gloves. See how much better this outfit looks by adding big honking weed-pullers?
Blog Guy, I represent a project to open a Johnny Cash Zoo, and I….
You know, a zoo where all the animals dress in black, like Johnny Cash did.
What would be the point of that?
Our target audience is families who want to go to the zoo, but don’t want to be cheered up by the visit. We also own a Johnny Cash Circus and a Johnny Cash Amusement Park.
Ah. Clowns dressed in black?
Totally. So anyhow, I’m looking for a designer who can do our animal wardrobe.
