Essential Winter Style Tip #1

My Mum and I went shopping on Monday, which was quite an adventure. She complimented me on my incredible fashion sense, "You always wear things that go together," she said, "except sometimes when they don't."

So since my brain is in such a state at the moment and because I am in a funny kind of mood, I thought I would post the occasional brief style tip so that you too can benefit from my remarkable aesthetic taste and so that you too can look fabulous this winter!

First, this seasons most style essential tip. Metallic fabrics are all the rage this winter; all shades of lamé, spandex and other fabric I don't know the names of with glitter and sequins. And not just on shoes and handbags; sparkly is most definitely the new beige.

Topshop have a number of different pairs of foil leggings, including this magnificent pair for £18. Now, given that they have been placed on a ideally-proportioned mannequin and photographed in the best possible conditions, one does wonder how anyone who isn't a professional dancer or indeed, a magpie might possibly be attracted to such an item.

That's right; this season's most essential style tip is

Pink metallic leggings
: Just Say "No!"

Especially if you have external genitalia.

Aaaagh, my eyes!

Though, mind you, now that we're all in The Future, we really should start dressing for it. And personal jet-packs can't be far behind!

Oh I don't know. Mine always go down well in the office ;-)

Oooh, I've got just the right shoes for the jetpack ensemble:

tears streaming down my face. I was thinking. Ooo Goldfish. Such style. oooo. I am totally tempted. At least I was until you dissed them.

Laughing too much

Jesss - jetpacks are an excellent idea. If they came with a jetpack, I'd wear 'em.

Marmiteboy - well, I'm sure you carry them off splendidly.

Penny - lovely shoes! I like glittery shoes - even I have a pair!

WCD - but you are a damcer, so you are allowed to wear such things and would undoubtedly look lovely in them!

Jetpacks and hover cars! We'll have them any day now, I'm telling you. When that day comes, I know I won't want to be lacking in the shiny-pants department. :D

Smash Martian aliens maybe, but not my style.

Why do all leggings -- even the shiny ones -- make the wearer look like they've left their REAL pants at home?

It's hard enough to avoid protruding, queuing for the supermarket checkout in a pair of Ron Hill tracksters. I'd be arrested in these!


Anonymous Sara said ... (9:08 PM) : 

Dammit! Now I have to rethink my whole wardrobe for this winter! Thanks a lot, Goldfish! ;)


Blogger fluttertongue said ... (10:19 PM) : 

What I want to know is what kind of underwear you'd wear with these kind of things. Surely a vpl is unavoidable? And it doesn't bear thinking about what kind of topography you'd undoubtedly display around the upper leg area. For the sake of decency, let alone taste, these ought to be outlawed.

I want to know how many hits on google you will get just for saying "external genitalia." Great post. :) J
