My mother and I were in a restaurant having lunch, minding our own business when “Barbie” walked in. Of course, I’m being facetious because this young woman (and I use that term loosely) looked like a complete tramp. Seriously. I would have taken a photo, but I couldn’t stop laughing/crying long enough to do so. Plus, (and I know this might be shocking for some) I have more class that that, unlike the subject of this post.
I can only attempt to describe the spectacle thusly:
- Blonde (dyed) long hair, bunched up by a clip and a pink flower in her hair. It hadn’t even been combed, just piled on top of her head half way to a beehive
- Florescent, pink lace see-through, fitted tank top
- White shorts that looked like they belonged on a 6 year old made out of a terry towel material
- Now underwear (yes, we could tell)
- trashed looking heals that did not come close to matching the outfit.
- inch long nails that matched her top
My point is: this is not attractive. models may wear this stuff for a photo shoot, but then they get changed when they are done into normal clothes. And I wasn’t the only one who thought this! At the next table were a group of boys, about 14-16 years of age who you would think would be ogling at such a sight. But no… they laughed… all of them… even more than me! I almost lost my appetite it was so appalling!
Understand, I don’t expect everyone to have amazing fashion sense. This is not an issue of mismatched colours. This is a lesson on what not to wear. I’ve got a friend that I call upon as a fashion consultant because I can’t pick colours properly. But I have dignity and so should you. If you’ve got it, flaunt it. That doesn’t mean you walk into a restaurant in a bikini unless there is sand under your feet and you’re at the beach.
One of the patrons walked by with his daughter who was wearing a princess dress. Not a regular outfit with princesses on it for young girls… a costume. He looked at this girl in the same disbelief as the rest of us. But you are part of the problem, sir. Teach your children, both boys AND girls to have a little dignity and dress appropriately. If that means wearing jeans, great! Just pull them up so I don’t have to stare at your ass through your underwear that I don’t want to see either. As my friend Michael Nus says, Stay classy.
P.S. I’ve also bet my mother that the Mercedes Benz in the parking lot with the dice hanging off the mirror, tinted windows and nice rims with a huge crack in the windshield was hers too. Let me know if you can confirm this and I’ll buy you a beer.
Have some pride in your appearance and yourself and don’t dress like a slut in public.
