fashion pet peeves?

The number one fashion pet peeve of mine- socks and sandals! Why do people insist on participating with this horrid habit!! What are some of your fashion pet peeves?

There is no excuse.....

...absolutely no excuse to wear socks with sandals!

Really? Socks with slides? Ew.

ugh...Why UGGs?

If you haven't heard of UGG boots then you have been living under a rock for the past two years. There everywhere, from the feet of little babies to grandmothers, if you walked through a mall no doubt you would be able to count at least 50 pairs tramping around the mall like a lost Eskimo.

In my opinion UGGs should only be used when one is actually planning to go on a snowy wintry vacation where there will actually be snow and use the boots for warmth and to look cute, because attempting to look fashionable in these boots will only end up failing. Look at these examples to show you what I mean...

I don't believe this needs any explaining other than if it is hot enough for a sombrero, than its too hot for uggs.

So next time you go shopping, try not to gag at the sea of UGGs marching towards you. Instead, look for an alternative to the UGGs such as a stylish leather boot- that unlike the UGG- will never be mistaken for a dead platypus.

Farouche Fashion Fails

We have all seen them, walking down the sidewalk, at a mall, or even your own mother wearing fashion failures. I am the first to admit it is incredibly hard not to burst out laughing at the hilarity of their outfit but in the end, I pity the individual who believes that their fashion is farouch(ious) but in reality it is a bomb. Thus, here is what I believe are the top 3 fashion failures. (Warning- not for the fashionably squeamish)
The currently popular baggy clothes- now unless you want to look like a gangster or look about 50 pound heavier than you really are(plus it looks like you have midget legs), DO NOT WEAR BAGGY CLOTHING! Even jeans that are to baggy and loose will add pounds to your legs and butt.
This next trend- crazy colors. The most annoying thing that I see while I am walking around are the high school girls about 20 pounds to heavy, squeezing into neon colored skinny jeans, pairing it with some sort of insanely colored shirt. This is not fashion or style- that is a fail. Please, I do not want to wear sunglasses all the time while I am out, because of these blinding colors that people wear!

I am not quite sure if this is considered fashion, but it has to be said! Girls! And some guys! Pluck or wax your freakin eyebrows!! When people talk to each other it is a common courtesy to look at eachother in their eyes, what is right above your eyes? Your eyebrows! Thus assuming that no one will see those big hairy nasty's up above your eyes is a wrong assumption! Not plucking your eyebrows display to the entire world a lack of respect to not only yourself but others as well. At least get rid of the unibrow so when someone is talking to you they can hold back their laugh a little bit longer!

Trust me on this one- pluck your eyebrows!

Afforable Farouche Jewelry from!

Why not purchase a few one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry from this holiday season? Etsy has a lot of users who make handmade jewelry and then sell it for half the price designer's charge, but you know with your purchase you will be receiving a artful design catered specifically to your likes or dislikes!

This ring is for those who like to keep it simple, but it's unique design offsets the simple nature of the ring. And at $3 (yeah, that includes shipping), this is a steal especially because the designer will hand make it to fit to your finger.

This glamorous ring is gorgeous and can be worn with a dressy outfit, or it can dress-up a usually casual outfit. And at $3 it's a steal!

Farouche Fashion: Crazy Shoe edition

These Shoes are from Nina Ricci's Fall '09 collection. It is unclear how anyone let alone a model walking down a slick runway could walk in these, with out a defined heel and what seems to be a "fashionable "hybrid of a ballet pointe shoe. Even thoughts considering wearing these shoes are crazy! These shoes could seriously hurt someone, is it right to sacrifice health for fashion?Look at some more examples of this shoe to see what I mean!
Fashionable or painful?

Another of Alexander Mcqueen's crazy designs. Looks painful but I love it! The beading is beautiful, but it doesn't look as atrocious as this:Yes, Daphne Guinness, I would have the same shocked expression on my face if I was walking around in shiny, block stilts disguised as heels.
