I wish statement necklaces with wedding dresses weren’t a thing. Haha I just decided today that I don’t like it.

I wish leggings as pants wasn’t a thing! And short shorts/skirts (I mean ridiculously short – like, I can see whether or not you’ve had a bikini wax lately).

I’m probably someone you’d hate, Hellecat. I never dress up or coordinate my clothes – shorts and t-shirts at all times unless it’s super fancy and I might wear a nice top and pants. Sorry!

@KellyLouise:  This is the first time I’ve ever seen a statement necklace – had no idea what they even were. I’m really not a fan of that look. Ah well, each to their own!

@KellyLouise:  Haha, I love it! So very, very true.

 

@HelleCat:  Yeah, I understand what you mean (I think). You’ll rarely see me outside the house in trackies or a baggy t-shirt. And never, ever ugg boots. I usually dress for comfort, but not to the point where I look like a sack of potatoes.

Adult onesies.  Do really need to elaborate or explain why I find them awful?

I’m pretty open to fashion choices, BUT FOR GOODNESS GRAVY WEAR CLOTHING THAT FITS!! 

There was this woman in my store tonight. She was probably around 300lbs (and keep in mind that I’m a bigger girl at a size 18, and she was a LOT larger than me) was wearing a shirt so tight that it really looked like she had just painted her torso black. And she was wearing leggings with it, not even pant-like leggings, straight up leggings. Like panty hose. No underwear. You could see EVERYTHING.

Theres another girl that comes in my store regularly. She should probably be wearing a size 14. She thinks she wears a size 8. Her pants dont fit, her shirts dont fit. She just looks awful. It makes her look so much bigger than she actually is.

I wear a lot of clothes like that. Granted, i dont go to bars or ever really go out much. my job is dirty and physical and sweats and shorts are comfortable, meaning most of my closet consists of that. I have a few nicer outfits, but none specifically well put together. Some people dont have the eye or natural style to put an outfit together, includinging myself. Thats ok though, i love my sweats :)

Rompers. Pair them with gladiator sandals and you have two of my least favorite things.

Shirts with the giant armholes so you can see your bra

See-through shirts where you can see your bra

Black leggings with brown boots

Those high sloppy buns on girls with no chin- why do you do this to yourself???

Try going around a Northern UK ex mill town in winter. Imagine it is -8 degrees. Outside a nightclub, you see a group of women. They are all at least a UK size 16 (US 12, I think) but are wearing clothes which are at least 2 sizes too small. Their skirts are so short they are showing their knickers when they move. Two of them are wearing crop tops, with their bellies hanging out over their skirt bands. Their flesh is blue and goose pimpled from the cold, and none of them are wearing coats. Worse still, they are wearing high heeled, strappy sandals and have done up the ankle bands so tightly that ankle flesh oozes out over the band.

I saw this growing up. It made me want to puke. For **** sake, if you are 5 foot 4 and you weigh 14 stone, dress in clothes which flatter you, cover up your wobbly bits, and actually fit! In fact, that goes for ladies of any size, in general. It’s just that the endless rolls of untoned, untanned flab on display in this example were quite extreme.
