Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by lizvocal.

Ditto to all of the above! I do have vague memories of tanning when I was a kid running around all summer outside, but always after a vicious sunburn. Now, I am pale and proud.

To all of your excellent points, I would add the shallow observation that tanning is incredibly boring. Laying in the sun (or a tanning bed) unable to move or read or anything, bores my brains out in five minutes flat. So I confess here to you all that when I see someone with a perfect tan, I think they must be boring and shallow to be able to lay there, doing nothing. Unless you get your tan doing athletics or farming, I can’t imagine talking to you about anything. 🙂

Clothes for the Chronically Undecided
I can only imagine wearing that harem hybrid out in public – and being stopped every few feet to be told your pants are bunched up in back. No one would ever believe you left the house intending to look like that.


How much would you pay for a beat-up denim jacket?
I would spend $5 at Goodwill, and get a much better looking coat at that.


We’re, like, totally obsessed with this orange Valentino dress
Honest to goodness, this would be the easiest thing to sew. Save yourself $4000! and LOL to Heidi.


Well, this is awkward.
Is this because we don’t teach home ec anymore? Because all these designers need sewing lessons, stat.


Still time to buy the amazing crocheted swimsuit!
Only if the airbrush artist who did this model could follow me around and airbrush me in real life. Even then, the little tassels down the front might defeat me.
