Fashion: love or hate?

June 1, 2012

Fashion fascinates me.  Riveted to Project Runway every season, I wonder how designers come up with some of the things they do. Especially those that are…shall we say…. on the edge.  Literally.

So when I ran across a few odd fashion statements, I had to ask myself, do I love these? or hate them?  What do you think?

Love or hate? I’m undecided.

Same with this. They’re both from Shabby Apple, which makes mostly cute stuff.
This designer, The Rodnik Band, is supposed to be pioneering.

I’m decidedly NOT undecided about this horror. Who would wear a urinal?

By photographer Michael Hazzard

It’s a striking photograph, but seriously, would you wear this hat? Anywhere? It’s a lawsuit waiting to happen. Not even the British royals would wear something this dangerous.

By Akademiks

“Does my ass look fat in this?”  Yes. Yes, it does.

These shoes are kind of clever…

…but NO. There’s clever. And then there’s what we’d wear. But I’d love to see someone wearing them.

Japanese street fashion is known for its eccentricities.  I enlarged the photo so you could get a really good view of the mask.

How about this for the man in your life? I’d love to see my husband’s face if I suggested he wear this.

Wouldn’t surprise me at all to see this on one of the Real Housewives. I think Alexis “Jesus Barbie” Bellino would wear it best, and she’d pray for forgiveness while she does.

But here’s the thing:  I’ll never be able to see a thong again without thinking of Bailey’s proposal to her hot hunk of man on Grey’s Anatomy. In a thong. Bailey’s my favorite character. But back to this thong dress. Yikes!

And its male equivalent. Inbreeding, ya think?

I’d love to see her try to sit down in this.

Stars like Beyonce pay good money for stylists to put their looks together. I love this look from the waist up, but those hot pants? No.

And then, there’s this:

One of my friends is moving to Montana. If this comes in men’s sizes, I’ll have to get it for him.

So what do you think? Love or hate?

    Yeah, do not like any of these! Lol as I scrolled I kept saying, “what were these people thinking!?” were they even when they came up with this stuff?

  3. Liz Mays says:

    Sometimes I can appreciate the art, detail and originality of the clothes. They rarely look like clothes someone could wear for everyday life though.
