I don’t really have much to say today so I’m just going to show you a few pictures of clothes I’d really love to buy…mainly because Tom HATES these styles and I get such a kick out of how annoyed he gets when he sees someone wearing any of the following…..
The romper (onesie?).
I actually kind of like this look but whenever I’ve put on a romper in the past, pants or shorts, I somehow magically shapeshift from a 6ft. tall skinny woman into an amorphous Oompah Loompah.
Tom gets seriously outraged when he sees people wearing overalls, especially women. His reaction to overalls makes me giggle like crazy. I don’t mind the overall look, but again, I don’t really feel like it’s something I could pull off.
Funny that this look seems to be coming back into style. I owned a pair of overall shorts about 10 years ago. I sold them at Buffalo Exchange (trendy used clothing store in Austin) and the snotty fashionista boy behind the counter who sorted through my pile of clothing as if it was full of fleas and lice lifted up the overalls and said, “Please tell me you haven’t worn these in the last decade.” I actually felt slightly ashamed of myself. I bet that little jerk has a pair of overalls in his closet now.
If Tom could have an arch-nemesis in the form of clothing, it would be the hippy pant. He HATES them. I really want to buy a pair. First off, they look comfortable AS HELL. Second, I’d run around the house yelling, “Have you seen my magic lamp?” or singing “A Whole New World” (this is an Aladdin reference in case you didn’t know) and it would irritate him to no end. Tom doesn’t really give a shit about fashion, but he gets amusingly affronted by fashion he doesn’t approve of. And sometimes Tom being irritated about silly little things is just absolutely hilarious to me. And then, when he was good and annoyed, I could go over to him and say, “Wow, your aura is really starting to get cloudy looking!” I can practically hear him growling now.
My idea of a loving relationship is probably vastly different from the rest of the world’s.
This is my ultimate fashion enemy…..
I can feel my blood starting to boil just LOOKING at these ridiculous jeans. JUST WEAR SHORTS!!
My idea of Hell would be having to watch a cover band doing all Heart songs, like Barracuda and Crazy on You, with all the musicians in the band wearing those horrible jeans. And if they were barefoot and the soles of their feet were black like they’d just walked barefoot through a parking lot…..AAAARGH!!!…..eternal torture.
Isn’t it funny the things that get your goat?
Isn’t the phrase “get your goat” funny?
Happy Friday, my loves.
