ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR THAT?








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



 























IRONY

It's ironical, but click "newer post" at the end if you missed Thursday's post, "ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR THAT?"




Do you, like me, find it interesting that life is so full of ironies, such as seeing a group of pro-lifers throwing eggs at an abortion clinic or getting hit by a Dodge?  Did you realize that an ironic t-shirt typically has a double meaning?  In addition to whatever the shirt says it usually means the wearer is an ass.

I found these at friendsofirony.com:






















These are from BuzzFeed:








But don't worry; nothing's written in stone except this:




Alanis Morissette agrees with me: 

Here are the lyrics:

"Ironic"
An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
"Well isn't this nice..."
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic...don't you think
A little too ironic...and, yeah, I really do think...

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out
