Can pale people wear shorts?

Of course they can. It’s what I do all the damn time! What else am I supposed to do anyway? Cover my legs until they are tanned? (If somebody could please explain to me how THAT is supposed to work…) Does that mean I’m doomed to sweat in long-legged and long-sleeved clothes while all the others proudly parade their sundresses? No way, people!!!
I’ve just been to an open-air festival again last week and I’ve actually managed to get slightly beige-toned skin (and freckles) on my forearms and cheeks. That’s about the most “tan” I’m ever going to get. And it made me cringe to see all the other people there displaying varying tones of “grilled-chicken-brown” and “cooked-lobster-red”. It’s not that hard to apply some sunscreen, is it?
The sad thing is that many people still consider tanned skin “healthy” and paleness means “sick” to them. And as long as advertisements still show us happy athletic tanned people on the beach, that attitude is not going to change… πŸ™

Crime of Fashion? Ripped knee jeans take over
I guess you can call me “Hipster” now as I own a pair just like these and already did so before it was cool… But mine weren’t ripped on purpose, the fabric just broke after years of use.
And I don’t wear these for anything else but casual occasions like rock concerts or motto parties.
Although I generally like the look, I would never buy jeans pre-ripped. You have to own the look by wearing them to death!

Fashion Crime Friday | Hands on your head
Ach, dang it, those “shredded shorts” look like they used to be exactly the kind of jeans I have been looking for for YEARS! Why did they have to do this to them??? GAAAAAHHH!

Style Trial | The Mullet Mini Skirt
Actually I think this goes in the right direction.
In fact I have often had the problem that skirts with an “even” hem turned out to be too short in the back, because -well- women do have booty. πŸ™‚
So if this was just a little bit longer in the front, making it less “dangerous” and the length difference less pronounced, I’d buy it immediately.

Fashion Police at the MET Costume Institute Gala 2014
Yep, that’s the Death Star on Kirsten Dunst’s dress. πŸ™‚ And I think it’s very fitting as the gala took place on May the 4th. (“May the Force…” πŸ˜‰ )

Fashion Crime Friday | ‘Fat Pants’ and other crimes of fashion
To be honest I really like the dinosaur sweatshirt… but when I saw that it costs $79 and only comes in one (shapeless) size I decided that it’s not that pretty. πŸ™

The rest: urghs!
