I have to talk/bitch about clothes for just a second

But it's only because today I'm going shopping for a few warm things. Ok, I hate winter clothing, this is no secret. When I put on long sleeves and long pants, I feel like I'm in prison, I'm sure I've said this before but it's worth repeating. And I'm short so certain things can make me completely disappear. But like I said, I'm going to make the most of it. Usually I just wear old raggedy jeans and an old raggedy teeshirt with an old raggedy jacket and call it a day. I want to look respectable this year. And maybe appropriate. Those are two words I hate but I don't want to look raggedy this winter. That's probably why I'm always so damn depressed during that season and I refuse to feel like a bag lady anymore just cuz it's cold outside. I did manage to find a few things I love and I'm looking for some good shoes(I'm sure I'm not the only girl out there who has love for a good pair of shoes). However, I have just one major complaint. If I see one more of those 'word or phrase' outfits, I'm going to strangle myself. You know what I'm talking about right? Those "Juicy" on the butt pants? Those "Team Pink(or whoever)" shirts. Those "I'm hot" or, "I'm flirty", or "Can you afford this?", or "I met your boyfriend on myspace", crap these clothing companies keep trying to force on us. If you happen to like the stuff, don't be mad at me ok. It probably means that you're way cooler than I am, cool enough to get it. I just hate them. I feel like if you have to tell someone what you are by wearing it, you're probably not. Why would I need to tell anyone I was "flirty" on my shirt or on my behind? Ok I do have a shirt that says,"Aloha" on it, but it doesn't announce that I'm "Lookin' for a Sugardaddy" on the front and "I see you checking this out" on the back. Is there something I'm missing? I feel like a old grouchy lady when I say it but maybe I'm just an old grouchy lady then.

*I know I haven't been visiting much but I'll catch up when I get home today.

I don't like those either. A lot of times they're worn by little girls and they are soooo inappropriate.

Although in college I did think it was funny when people had "UCDAVIS" on their asses. I was like, yeah, that's what I think of it too.

thailandchani said...

Needless to say, I agree with you as well. It just looks ridiculous!

Have to agree with Des, too, about the kids wearing it.

In Wyoming, I saw shorts with "Jackson Hole" printed on the backside.

Seriously, folks.

I have a tee-shirt that says, 'Grumpy' on it. But I usually wear it as a warning to others. ;P

But yeah, if someone has to wear a shirt to tell other people just how hot they think they are, they're probably trying to convince themselves.

Whiskeymarie said...

Yeah, I don't get the "Juicy"-type stuff either. If your shirt says something, it should be smart, funny in a non frat-boy way, or cute in a smart way.
Usually the ones advertising how "hot" they are are anything but.

Totally yuck. You give it to em!

I am soooo with you on this. For one thing, if I pay for a piece of clothing, why do I need to advertize for the manufacterer? Shouldn't they pay me? For another thing, why do I want someone else's name on my body parts? And 'juicy' on a butt is just gross.

I'm pretty much a grouchy old lady at this point, so I concur. Not that you are old or grouchy - I am. I hate any sort of shopping, and this sort of thing makes me dislike it even more. If I could get away with wearing a burlap sack all the time with no strange looks, I probably would! (if it had a comfy lining, of course - burlap is a bit scratchy)

You will never catch me wearing "Juicy" on my ass.

I saw a tiny baby tee recently that said "Are you my daddy?"

I guess you can't start too young.
