Fashion Police 1 – Suits and Sandals?

bunnycoat 4 February 2008 62

What is it with Canberra women? However hot or cold the weather you see women in ‘serious’ trouser suits and their toes peeking out of sandals. This seems to be a Canberra thing – I have never seen it elsewhere.

What's Your Opinion?

I thought the squashed pack went into the rolled up sleeves of your flannie ?

I’m dismayed that The Darkness failed to bring back cock rock fashion…

Corduroy flares v nice : ) ANY flares! Bring em back! Much more flattering…

Guys with tapered pants and baggy bums…. oh dear : (

There are a few things that traumatised me in my primary school years. Tights with long jumpers was one of them. It was one of the most unflattering looks of the times!

I been thinking about this sandal thing with pants and yes, with a formal work suit ie. grace brothers type formal shirt with or without suited jacket it could look odd cause the sandals may be way too casual for the top.

However if you are just wearing ‘valley girl’ black pants with a casual but nice shirt/top the sandals can suit the slightly casual and summery look – as long as the top isn’t too ‘formal’.

Kind of the end of the scale where you’d rather wear jeans instead of the black pants if you were allowed..

As for chicks who wear them in the rain – probably didn’t check the weather forcast…: P

The thongs thing – Hippie chicks breaking freeee!

On the topic of fashion. Anyone who wears jodpers needs to be euthanased.

I think I’ll go for the flared jeans and paisley shirt.

Very Small Faces….

I’m very cool – but no-one believes me 🙁

now everyone…. I was hoping for a series of Fashion Police busts and now you seem to have covered a lot of ground! but I’m sure there are plenty more topics …. for example ankle length tights under short skirts in summer

Team that with an acrylic ‘cardigan’ that comes down to your knees with a packet of Horizon 100’s the size of a show box stuffed into one of the pockets … now go get your ugg boots on!

Stirrup pants, a skivvy and flannie with thongs.

ooooh yeah. I’m gonna look pretty good tomorrow!

Deadman – don’t wait for it to come into fashion, go for it now. It’s very Kurt Cobain. He was cool.

Anyone remember stirrup pant tracky dacks? Sigh. Thems were the days…

Deadmandrinking Deadmandrinking 5:08 pm 04 Feb 08

I’m waiting for the day trackie-dacks and thongs or old sneakers come back into fashion. I’m not a bogan – I’m a trend-setter.

Very nice. I’m still looking for those argyle patterned eskimo style sock slippers with the leather soles they had a while back….. 🙂
