Of short-shorts and boots
I give up. I cannot read Vogue, or Marie Claire, or any other fat fashion mags. They are so suffused with ads that it is impossible to navigate the pages — literally dozens of slick pages before there is anything to read, then finding only chopped-up bits and pieces of copy.
And, when I do miracuously stumble over something besides ads, it’s some dipshit fashion like apparently pre-pubescent mannequins sporting short-shorts and fur-lined, ankle-high boots in August and September, for god’s sake.
Don’t get me wrong. I appreciate a nice set of legs,but stupid outfits are nothing more than stupid outfits.
I know there is a finite number of fashion combinations, and we’re fated to see some revivals and some bad choices. But, short-shorts and fur-lined booths?
Some people are just phoning it in.
