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

I too have VERY pale skin which does not tan at all. Couple this with my blue eyes and my hair turning grayish-white by the time I was 24 and you get people thinking I’m albino (even though I’m not). I like my skin tone. It sets me a part from all the sheep that think you have to be orange to look healthy.

Fashion-wise, I tend to dress in richer, cooler colors, like cobalt blue as opposed to baby blue. Warm colors and pastels just make me look corpse-like. Since my skin is super-sensitive to the sun, I tend to wear long-sleeved button tops and long pants year-round (breathable since I live in Texas) with a hat if I’m going outside. It’s just easier to me than having to constantly rub sunscreen all over my body so that I could wear shorts. Plus, I think I look more elegant and professional when wearing the more conservative clothing.

I actually really like the upper part of that jacket. The “skirt” on the other hand looks like the model forgot to pull it back down after using the toilet.

Those tied pants remind me of the wrap pants that a lot of men in India wear. Only in denim and much less flattering.


Moschino makes McDonald’s-themed clothing, charges small fortune for it
Thanks so much for this post (note the sarcasm). Seeing that mess up there brought back long-repressed memories of being a fast food employee.


Trend Trial | Sensible Sandals as a Fashion Statement
As someone who has problem feet, it’s nice to see how a more “sensible” shoe looks with fashionable clothing. However, even WITH problem feet, I wouldn’t wear these particular shoes with those clothes. There are sensible shoes that you can put orthotic insoles (even sandals) in that are MUCH cuter than these. I should know; I’ve got about 20 pairs. 🙂


The Emperor’s New Tops by Topshop Boutique
And I could have seen myself wearing those too, if they’d been opaque. Speaking of, how the heck did the photographer make the ones without a model look like opaque fabric?
