OK. STOP what you are doing. Take a deep breath and grab your diary. Flick to Saturday September 1st. Done? Right, now grab a pen and write any of the following - Taken/Busy/Unavailable/Engaged/Having the time of my life ♥ (Love Heart - Optional). Got that sorted? Now click here and buy yourself a ticket to what will be the most amazing fashion event you'll ever attend - FASHION AVENUE. With VIP seated tickets having just SOLD OUT don't waste any time snapping up one of the few standing tickets still available - this event WILL sell out.
Today M lets us in on what a guy really thinks about the fashion we wear.
“That dress would look much better on the bedroom floor”…
unfortunately this is no longer just a dodgy pick up line, but a true
reflection of the nature of many girls choice of clothing. I can’t recall how
many times I have been out with the boys looking at the female talent and
someone has said the words “she’s pretty hot, but WTF is she wearing?!” After
discussing this at length with female friends it has become quite clear to me
that girls and guys often have very different opinions about what looks good on
a girl. So in order to get my thoughts out there without having to hear the
standard “you don’t understand, you’re a stupid boy” line that I usually get
(and also bludge a bit at work) I have agreed to write this blog for Eve and
Prue giving a guys opinion of what girls wear.
I am in no way a fashion guru nor am I the most stylish dresser
myself, but in my humble opinion: if you don’t look good to the average person,
you don’t look good at all. If you think something is fashionable just because
it’s on the ‘New Arrivals Rack’, it costs a fortnights wages or that was made
by some obscure designer who makes all their clothes by hand on their grandma’s
antique loom… think again!
As I obviously have no real idea about girls fashion (or guys for that
matter) rather than trying to give you suggestions on exciting combinations of
clothing to wear, I’m just going to give you my opinion on some of the things
that see the so called ‘trendy’ girls of today wearing.
Too High High Heels
As Bart Simpson told Lisa when she was preparing for the Little Miss
Springfield Pageant, “heel, toe, heel, toe”. If you can’t walk like this then
you need to wear shorter heels or be prepared to have people laughing behind
your back as you stomp around looking like a velociraptor (their the scary
dinosaurs from the end of Jurassic Park). And remember that flats are sexy.
Just don’t do it!
Girls see this:
Guys see this:
If you aren’t a mechanic you probably shouldn’t wear one.
MC Hammer Pants
I don’t know what they’re actually called but these pants aren’t
flattering on any girl…
Mustard Coloured Clothing
Mustard is for hotdogs, not clothing.
of how you do it and despite what may have previously been written by The Gosson, when I see a girl wearing any form of animal print I can’t help
but get flashbacks to being groped by desperate cougars at the Old Lion,
so unless this is the look you're going for I recommend avoiding it.
Potentially the sexiest thing since the invention of the bikini is the
high waisted skirt. High waisted pants should be treated with caution and high waisted shorts
should be avoided.
Go as tight as you can go whilst still being able to walk properly or
having your crotch resemble the bonnet of a Volkswagen Beetle (using you
imagination you should be able to tell what I’m talking about).
Firm fitting, short cut long-sleeved dress with no cleavage… always a
winner (provided you have the body for it).
I just came back from a sneaky shop in Rundle Mall. I was there to try on a bridesmaid dress but couldn't help myself from peaking in at my favourite boutique, Whistles. And by jove I'm glad I did! The sales! I felt like Becky Bloomwood pre-Luke Brandon, meaning wanting to grab everything off the shelves, telling myself each bargain was an investment but knowing I shouldn't be spending anything.
But the prices! They were oh so good! Most things were 75% off, and a pair of leather Acne shorts, originally $800 were marked down to $99! An eighth of the original price! (Definitely check them out, I would have bought them but they were a bit big - probably a size 12-14.)
Anyway, as I know deep down I am in saving mode - Barcelona and the Greek Isles are calling my name - I left with only two items. An amazing white cotton Lover drop-waist dress (perfect for Barcelona AND Greece) and a navy Karen Walker tie-shoulder shift (a classic, will have it forever). And as any wise shopping addict should do, I will be placing a whole lot of pre-loved goods on Ebay and I will update you all with a link when I'm done. Expect to see some Sass & Bide, Forever New, Seed, Zimmermann and much much more! Eve x
