Greetings, and welcome back to WTF Wednesday. Today’s trend is probably a natural outgrowth of the “pajamas as clothing” trend: slipper shoes. These shoes look remarkably like your grandma’s house shoes. Also, I have trouble keeping shoes without backs on my feet. I’ve had some flat sandals constructed in a similar way, and I either… Read More WTF Wednesday: Slipper Shoes
Greetings. Welcome back to WTF Wednesday. This week, we will examine things that are perfectly acceptable in their proper context, but that should never have been combined. Inappropriate Suiting.

I don’t mean for just that quick convenience store run when it’s late-night or early morning and you just need some smokes and perhaps… Read More WTF Wednesday: Do I Wear This in Public?
Welcome again to WTF Wednesday, where we see what steaming piles of bullshit the fashion industry is trying to sell us this week. I’ve made my position clear: I am officially over distressed denim. Nevertheless, it continues to be a thing. For example, Torrid had 41 pairs available. I found this pair to be the… Read More WTF Wednesday: Distressed by Denim
I was trying to think of a regular feature, and then I was surfing Eloquii last night. And I had a flash of brilliance. Half my reason for starting this blog is because I’m tired of people kissing the ass of retailers and featuring (free to them) outfits, all the while trying to pretend this… Read More Introducing WTF Wednesday: Frilly Fails.
