Blogger was playing peekaboo with me Thursday, so I took this post offline & rescheduled it for Friday.  
I hope it works!!

Rihanna at 2015 Grammys

Have you ever gotten all dressed up to go to somewhere fancy & had your significant other ask you despairingly, "Are you going to wear that?"  I think these ladies would have been better off if someone had posed that question to them!!  These photos from BuzzFeed  were taken at a 2014 gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  I have not included the designer's names out of pity:
Amanda Peet

Shailene Woodley

Naomi Watts

Cara Delevingne

Chloe Grace Moretz

Gabrielle Union

Imogen Poots

Kristen Stewart

Lena Dunham

Lupita Nyong'o

Margot Robbie

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

And it's NOT just the women:
Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka

And some maybe rode the pendulum too far to the other side:

 Sandra Lee

Tabitha Simmons

Johnny Depp, Amber Heard

Let's not forget Cher at the 1988 Oscars:

Which seems almost modest compared to 
Miley Cyrus at an Amfar event:

Or Rihanna at the CFDA fashion awards:

This is Lady Mary Charteris in her wedding gown:

Can't decide what to wear?

To see a beautiful fashion show
with birds, instead of people

Standing in line behind an American woman at McDonald's. She's wearing those jeans, you know the ones with the patch on the back pocket that says "Guess".  I'm thinking 250, maybe 300 pounds.
A woman tried to board a bus but her skirt was so tight that she couldn't make the step up. So she reached behind her, lowered her zip and tried again. Still the skirt was too tight. So again she reached behind her, lowered her zip a little more and tried to negotiate the step. But still the skirt was too tight. Determined to catch this bus, she once more reached behind her, lowered the zip a little and attempted to climb aboard. Then suddenly she felt two hands on her butt, helping her on to the bus. She turned around angrily and told the man behind her: "Sir, I don't know you well enough for you to behave in such a manner." The man replied: "Lady, I don't know you well enough for you to unzip my fly three times either!"

If you jog in a jogging suit, lounge in lounging pajamas, and smoke in a smoking jacket, why would anyone want to wear a windbreaker?? ----fishducky



  1. I am asked that question all the time. I always answer "Not now."

    1. Once, in the early years of our marriage, I was busy with the kids & Bud was feeling "frisky", I asked him if that would take long. He also answered, "Not now!!"

  2. Someone needs to do away with stylists and some sadistic designers who are likely laughing their heads off. It's amazing how bad taste seems to be 'in'.

  3. Those are dresses?? They're not worthy of the name. Who designs such rubbish?
    Love the casual Friday cartoon.
    I'd never thought about a windbreaker in quite that way. Possibly because we call them Parkas out here.

    1. To me a windbreaker is lightweight. A parka is a down-filled jacket you'd wear in the snow. My friend at the beach is always cold. When she asks me about the weather outside I tell her, "It's warm--just wear a light parka!!"

  4. PS; that man is perfectly dressed for that Gala; after all, the sign does say "black tie only"

    1. There's apparently a minor difference between "black tie only" & "only black tie"!!


Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
