Wear or Die: Customised skirts

Customised_skirts

For this week’s Wear or Die we’ve ventured into the wild and not-very-wonderful territory of the customised skirt, bringing back these two little beauties for you all to try on.

You know the rules of the game: you must choose one of these items to wear – or you must die. Sorry. So, which is it going to be: Tweetie Pie or Jane of the Jungle? Little-girl-in-a-mini-skirt or… well, Jane of the Jungle. The tacky jungle.

The choice is yours, dear readers – just remember that if you don’t choose, you die!*

*Note: not really

    I’m going to have to go with the Jane of the Jungle skirt. At least I won’t have a giant cartoon character plastered across my thighs! Or would it be my behind?

    Please, I’ll take death. And do not try to bury me in one of those skirts either. Thank you.

    I’ll take Tweety. At least it could have some camp value. Plus there’s the added benefit of not being mistaken for a $10 hooker. Or Paris Hilton.

    I will have to pick the Tweety bird one. You can at least pretend there’s an element of Giles in it. A very tiny element of childhood hero turned fashion accessory. The jungle one, no way.
    The main problem I have with both those skirts is that they are DENIM skirts, one of the worst kind of skirts in my opinion.
    GO TEAM TWEETY,
    I am now going to go and stab myself in the eyes.

    Jane of the Jungle. Because Tweety is *never* acceptable if you’re over, say, 7 years old. NEVER. And that whole “ha ha it’s ironic, see?” thing is way overdone.

    Amazingly, I wore a skirt like the Jane of the Jungle one when I was in middle school. It was the coolest thing. Ever.

    Jane of the Trashy Jungle. I just dont do longer skirts. They dont flatter me at all. Plus this way I could wear a really long shirt and cover it up, haha!
    But I second the stabbing of the eyes. Now I’m going to have to surf my favorite stores sites to calm myself:D

    This is the first time I’ve chosen death.
    I hate Tweety and that Jane of the Trashy Jungle skirt looks so short I’d probably end up pulling a Brittany Spears if I wore it!

    I think it’s funny when people try to rationalize a heinous choice, like “the lesser of two evils”. In this case, no matter how unfashionable “tweety” is, the other corset thigh, neon ribbon, animal print, too short mini jean skirt is absolutely NO better. That said, I’d wear tweety, just cuz it’s longer and if I’m gonna look like crap, I’m gonna be comfortable doing it.

    I was very close to choosing death on this one, but then I remembered when I was 16 and had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles skirt that I would pair with red tights and Doc Martens, and so the Tweety I think has an inkling of that grunge-era irony. Not that I would be caught dead in it today, mind you.

    I gotta join team tweety! less risk of my nether bits being flashed and it is sort of appealingly goofy.

    I don’t know what “dag dag” means on the trashy skirt, but I’d gladly take that over Tweety any day. I’d hate to be one of those middle aged women who wear a ton of cartoon characters because it makes them “ironic” or “cute” or “cool” or “in touch with her inner child”.

    Am I crazy for think that if the tweety one was shorter, a little customised and worn well it might look quite cute and kitsch?

    I choose die.
    But, I have to say that I like the way the short skirt has “D&G” written on it in an effort to have us believe that it is expensive and trashy, rather than cheap and trashy.

    I’m going with the Jane of the Jungle one, putting it over a pair of skinny jeans with ballet flats in that neon color on the right side of the skirt. and maybe a crazy printed top? just to be obnoxious.

    I’m choosing Jane of the Jungle – cartoon characters on adults is bleh, although the Jane skirt looks inspired by comix.

    Tweety – it is longer.
    The other one is so nasty, I can’t even bring myself to picture wearing it, let alone put it on.

    I think this was a pretty tough choice… Personally I’d echo Gokarms’ statement that if I’m going to look like crap, I may as well be comfortable, so I’d go with tweety, just because I wouldn’t have to be hauling it down all day long.
    Lol at the “dag dag” comment, though! I can’t believe I missed the fact that it’s prettending to be D&G – I bet they’ll be chuffed!

    I choose option 3: death. I would rather set myself on fire.

    If you are very talented, you might be able to put together an ensemble for the jungle skirt, but the tweety skirt should be burned.

    hmm… i choose the jungle trash. if you have the right figure you can put something together to make you look like a half decent hooker. woo! as opposed to a person wrapped in a kids beach towel…

    I thought i might add that the skirt was probably actually made from an old pair of d&g jeans. I do wonder what Stefano Gabbana’s or Domenico Dolce’s faces would look like if they ever saw this skirt…
    I noticed on ebay that there are a lot of skirts with this weird eyelet corset-type detail. Everyone seems to have latched onto it. It’s horrendous!! As if the skirt wasn’t short enough already, you have to go and chop a section off. Ghastly

    Wow, does it really say “Tweetie Pie” on it?
    Ok, I guess Tweety Bird for me, but only because the “jungle” one looks super short, and has that corset-lacing on it. (p.s. don’t you love how they’ve written “D&G” on the side of it?)
    At least with the Tweety one maybe I could make it a high-waisted skirt and call it vintage? Eh, it’d be ugly any way you put it I think.
