{Fashion} Crimes against humanity!

JessP 8 July 2011 31

I would like to point out some of the fashion crimes that are being committed every day in Canberra.   I am aware to all Rioters are well dressed, fashion forward (or at least age appropritae) but what is going on with the rest of the population?

Crimes include:

    — Leggings/jeggings/tights worn as an item of clothing, without a covering top of a modest length!  They are not jeans people!  We do not need that much information about you….ever!
    — Girls in overcoats/scarves/gloves with bare legs and strappy shoes in the day time!   If its that cold you need something warmer on the legs ladies!!
    — Those tags on jackets and coats which proudly proclaim that the said item of clothing is made of wool/cashmere or whatever months/years after item was purchased.  They are not a symbol of honour (oh look – I am wear a jacket with wool in it!!) they are a tag that should be removed!!
    — Acid wash jeans. Need I say more?

Come on Canberra – its time to make Canberra the fashion capital of Australia!!

Skateboard hats with the label and price still on it, with the little plastic hook…. i just dont get it.

They might want to be able to return them? It’s probably some obscure street fashion from the US, like giant trousers dragging on the ground.

Some occasions require a gal to wear a cocktail dress & stockings – even when these occasions take place in the middle of winter.”

Sigh…

Any lady who wears a nice jacket down to the thighs/knees with a pair of boots or heels looks sexy as hell, if you ask me.

I think Cake summed it up nicely with “I want a girl in a short skirt and a long jacket.”

Oh, i just found out what jeggings were, i had no idea they even existed.

I was wondering how girls were able to get their feet through the legs of tight jeans. This explains everything!

JessP is a killjoy! Leggings are fantastic when stretched over a particularly perky butt!

After spending a weekend in Sydney recently, I came back to Canberra feeling like a Camel herdsman after all the legging-clad cameltoe I’d seen on the streets.

If you wanna see fashion crimes, try living on the Gold Coast.

I am not worried about leggings thing, it too will pass as all fashion crimes do.

Just so long as the boobs go on the inside – nothing worse.

Fashion: the external compensation of those who lack character and confidence.

Be nice to JessP folks – she’s from Charnwood …

Looks like you flushed some of the resident frumps and scruffs, JessP!

I do feel your pain, those of you who responded with such venom. I understand. But please, cover your arses when you wear leggings in future, OK? Fat or thin, just cover them. Thanks.

And wash your coats, after pulling off the redundant labels. They are smelly.

In defence of jeggings, the chick on the supre jeggings ad I saw the other night is fah-reaking fine. I’m happily hetero but I’d turn for her. If she wants to come to my house wearing jeggings and do her little dance it’s completely cool with me.

In regards to the OP, what gives you the right to determine what people should wear? There’s a lot of people that don’t give a sweet god damn what others think of their style and more power to them. In fact I’m willing to bet nearly every single person in Canberra and the surrounding regions doesn’t care what you think of their clothes.

I think chicks picking on other peoples (specifically other chicks) fashion style either comes out of high-school bitchiness or plain old jealousy. Just mind your own business would be my advice.

Skateboard hats with the label and price still on it, with the little plastic hook…. i just dont get it.

Having said that, if people want to fork out x hundred for those leather pants or torn jeans, then good luck to them. helping australias economy along.

OP, I want to meet you so I can kick you in the face and ask you about fashion again.

Where’d you get those blue blue jeans?

canberra will never be the fashion capital of australia with such a small population – the fashionista only ever stand out in large populations or get swallowed up by the bogan australian mainstream… nonetheless, the things some people choose to wear are a hoot. not sure the government could fund fashion police, but perhaps there could be chaser-like citizen-issued tickets, payable to op shops?

and on op shops, when did sickson salvo’s clothing bins go??
