It's wonderful to show support of good causes. But really, are these bracelets the way to do it?
(Don't mention Dsquared². Don't. I actually liked that collection, but I think the whole trucker hat thing was a bit tongue in cheek.)
Just look at it. Tell me you don't want to wear a hat that says something like, "I have issues."
As told by Wikipedia: "Opaque leggings are sometimes worn by women without a skirt. However, unless the woman is also wearing a very long top, her buttocks will be exposed. There may be a visible panty line."
Panty lines are NEVER sexy, even paired with sexy catsuits. Just... no.
Chris Brown and Kanye West both have been known to wear camo and military garb. So, the moral of the story is this: if you want to look like a douchebag, pile on the redneck gear and load your gun.
... Enough said.
But seriously. I know people who own these. Still. And they're not gardeners. And apparently my dear Mama Bama ain't a saint. According to Wiki, "in August 2009, they were even spotted on the feet of America's First Lady." I want to die.
Just look at that sexy, sexy piece of man meat. But while Jon's... expressive features are quite eyecatching, it is the ensemble that really makes me want to gouge my eyes out with spoons.
Even if you're Judas Priest. It's not okay to look like a convicted serial killer.
This particular section from Wiki made me chuckle. "The studded leather look was extended in subsequent variations, to the wearing of combat boots, studded belts and bracelets, bullet belts, spiked gauntlets, etc. The codpiece, however, appears to have been less popular among the general public." Well, to each his own.
BUT THEY'RE BACK!! WHY? WHYY? I already have enough nut space in my ponte pants, thank you. These are UNFLATTERING as hell, and they're also extremely popular. Why? I don't get this trend, but I'm hoping they'll go away ASAP.
Furthermore, take a look at this list of pants that are practically synonymous with harem pants: "Similar pants are also known as dimije, tshalvar, schalwar, patiala salwar, sirwal, shintijan, sirwal, sharovary, turkish pants, aladdin pants, balloon pants, drop crotch pants, pantaloons, zouave, pluderhose, pumphose" (Wikipedia).
Why is it fashionable to be a gun-totin', boozin', ass-tappin' gangsta?
I really can't wrap my head around this orange shirt-thing.
Everyone I know wears these little fluffy bastards. They wear them with their little Abercrombie pants and sweaters or pull a Britney or Miley and pair them with JEAN SHORTS and flannel shirts. They're about eight times uglier than Crocs and three times uglier than harem pants. On top of the ugliness, every time someone wears a pair, a puppy dies.
(Not really. But I'm just fired up. Not libel suits, kthnxxx.)
So that's my take on the Aughts. Forgive me for my bitchiness; I'm PMS-ing.
