Fashion Police 1 – Suits and Sandals?

By 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?

You know what would look good? Boots over skinny leg work pants…

Howdy, if you wear good quality wool socks and proper leather shoes you don’t get hot, smelly feet.

The British look is East ender bimbos with bleached blonde hair with caked on makeup, and fluffy fake fur collars.

Not as bad as shorts, socks, and sandles…

It’s the sandals with suits as office wear I have a problem with……

Sorry for the poor grammar in my previous post, I tend to froth at the mouth and can’t type properly when on a rant.

Thongs belong exclusively to the domain of the beach or the backyard barbeque. They are NOT, I say again NOT, a fashionable even if they have funky flowers on them, or if your in Charnwood, a matching pair. Thongs should not be worn in public under any circumstances. They make the wearer shamble like a neolithic troglodyte and have the awesome power to make someone who might otherwise be attractive look like a tramp.

And to those wearing thongs in the rain or the middle of a Canberra winter – I hope you get Trench Foot or Frostbite…

Quick, call the fashion police!

Wow… I was only thinking this an hour ago as I drove to work. Who wears thongs in the rain, I ask you?

Sydney CBD is crawling with ‘suited’ ladies wearing rubber thongs to walk to work. Granted, they change into formal shoes when they get to work, but they deserve a fashion police ticket for wearing while flip-flops with a formal black dress-suit.

That’s cause we enjoy good feet ventilation and know how to avoid smelly sweaty feet. Unlike the smelly sweaty socks and shoes women in other cities… pongo!
