Happy Monday Fashionistas!
I figured I’d cover a topic that might need to be explained again before we get into full blown summer clothing. This is why today our post is dedicated to shorts, or lack there of.
Shorts, where to begin? They’re a tricky article of clothing to wear, because of body type, length and I guess confidence? I’ve never quite liked shorts, mostly because I grew up in the 90′s wearing what I call “Mom Shorts”. Those are the ones that start above your belly button and take around 5 buttons to fasten, that’s how high the rise is. Oh, and they end mid thigh. Real flattering. Clearly the girls in the above photo didn’t have their parents dressing them as a pre-teen and are not currently paranoid about finding a nice pair of jorts. If you can even call them that. In some countries, I believe that amount of coverage is called underwear. I am a firm believer that shorts should NOT hug the thigh, it is never a good look even for the boniest girl you know.
Now beyond that these chickas are missing some pants, they proceed to wear fanny packs! People! Fanny packs are for overweight tourists visiting Disneyland, not twenty something year old girls! And belly shirts? I think those are for the super toned or the anorexic. And mesh, that was definitely left behind in the 90s club scene. I am so happy you are attempting to bring that back! That was a lie, this is a complete fail. Where was the mirror here? Or the concerned parent?
Someone please help these girls before they become those moms that think its OK to hang out with their children and wear their clothes while pushing 60. But I must say at least one nice thing before closing this post….
Um, your hair looks nice?
Hello Fellow Fashion Crime Stoppers,
Welcome to SheLookDumb! This blog was created to make sure that fashion law is obeyed. Although you may not have been caught, (or nobody was nice enough to tell you) we will find you and let you know why YouLookDumb.
We’re starting off our first post with an older photo from a Prom. The mother of all fashion disasters, the big kahuna of ugliness, the quintessential occasion where all my fashion nightmares become reality. Now when I think of Prom, I think of Cinderella-esque ball gowns built using mountains of tulle that can choke a donkey. There are usually so many sequins that you may confuse your date with RuPaul. (See UrbanDictionary.com RuPaul Drag Race, if you are unfamiliar.) But there is a spectrum. There is always a girl who finds the perfect slinky number, the girl who tries and fails, and the girl who JustLookDumb.
Now, see if you can guess which one is which in the picture above…. If you guessed the girl in the short gold dress is “The Good”, please feel free to get off my website! If you guessed the girl in the black one shoulder dress, then please continue on. You are correct! The girl in the black dress has it all figured out, the dress is simple yet elegant and flatters her figure, she has passed the Prom Dress Test with flying colors.
The girl in the floral dress, tried. Good effort. The dress unfortunately does not work with her body type, and the print is dated (I think my grandmother wore a similar print to HER Prom). And the gold trim down the front is just plain confusing.
And now for the offender of the evening, the girl in the gold dress. Ah, where to begin?
1. This dress does not, I repeat NOT fit her.
2. It’s short. Now I’m all for short dresses, but come on honey you’re going to Prom! This dress isn’t formal enough for the event you are attending. I’m surprised you didn’t throw on a tiara, the most
beautifulhideous Prom accessory ever created.
3.What are your shoes? Come on, black suede with gold lace? AND they’re mary janes, are you high? This combo should not have been attempted in the middle of May… or ever.
4. You’re welcome for not posting the other pictures of your VPL (Visable Panty Line).
Prom can be a magical night full of pictures, underage drinking and loss of virginity. Most importantly great dresses. But beware all you fashion offenders, I will find you, wear-ever you are, no matter what occasion.
