Fashion Faux Pa

Now, I am clearly not setting the fashion industry on fire, but I'd like to think I have a little common sense and hopefully some class when it comes to dressing.

So, I am officially calling myself the fashion police of my hometown and I am making a law. 

The law states: a woman over the age of 20.... (should be younger) is not allowed to wear leggings and a regular length sweater.... and then..... go out in public!!!

Yesterday, we went to my son's Winter Carnival at his school. I saw a mother, working at the carnival no less, wearing a Christmas type sweater with ..... drum roll please.... you guessed it....leggings. Now, it would be one thing if it were a long sweater and that sweater covered up her oversized bootie. But, it's altogether different when, the sweater, at best, comes to the middle of the bootie. Then, to top it all off, she didn't have on some cute little flats that would not draw any extra attention. She had on some type of big Adirondack- looking socks that kinda matched the sweater and rose just above her brown fur boots. And, the brown fur boots had long tassels hanging off of them... the kind with the little fur balls.

Wow!!

So, being the ever gracious Proverbs 31 woman that I am... I looked at my good friend, Jennifer and said, "She might as well be naked."

Jennifer said, "She wore the EXACT same thing last night!"

Rule#2 Do not wear the outfit two days in a row!  For the love of Pete!!

So, for your viewing pleasure, I will now show you some unacceptable outfits featuring the ever-popular leggings. Enjoy!

     There is NEVER a reason to wear gold leggings!  I won't even address the other issues.


     WHAT IN THE WORLD!!!!!?????   This is bordering on pornographic!  
COME ON!!  Would any man EVER be caught dead wearing this??

LOL!!!!!!!! I couldn't agree more. What is the world coming to anyway? If you feel led to start a petition to make this sort of fashion eye-sore illegal, please make sure to send it to me, I'll sign it twice.

Um, that first picture is of my first cousin Samantha. Yeah. It was her 1985 Glamor Shot. GOTCHA!

If you're the fashion police, can I be your deputy?

And YES, let's get together right after the holidays. My girls will still be on sugar highs and it will make you appreciate your kiddos so much! Email me!

How did you get a picture of me in 5th grade on your blog?? =)

What is up with the leggings these days?? I just do not get it. I'm so out of style I guess, but don't people realize you have to be like a size 2 to look good in them?

You're too funny

Oh my gosh, I'm dying here! So is it ok for an 8 yr old to dress like that? Cause my mil bought my daughter a shirt from *my* store and insisted that it was in fact a dress and that she just needed tights and she's good to go to the Nutcraker in it!!! HELP!!! It's a SHIRT for goodness sake, not a dress!
oh and btw...

I'm going to follow up the leggings with a another law:
1) SPANDEX shorts are forbidden. I don't care if you weigh 5 lbs or 500 lbs. NO! It just doesn't leave enough for the imagination.
2) Don't ever tuck a shirt into your jeans, if they are pulled up to the ninnies.
3) DRESS JEANS ROCK! Ha, that one if for Paul.
