fall fashion forecast from wal-mart

Hey, Shug, how you doin' today? Grab us a couple a Pabst out the fridge and come on out here on the stoop with me and visit a minute. I've been missin' you somethin' awful. Ahhhh, don't you just love this time of year? It's always been my favorite too. There is a lil chill in the air and the leaves git to changin'. Puts a pep in your step from the git go, don't it? One of the thangs I look forward to is seein' what styles are comin' up for Fall. Hahaha ...Oh, Babe, I know there's a tinge of irony 'bout what a clothes horse I am...considerin' my profession' and all. Listen, gettin' dressed up and stayin' that way is a real treat to me.

Anyhoo, I don't know why them jet setters fritter their hard inherited dollars drivin' all the way over yonder to Paris and Milan to crane their scrawny necks at them runways. Those folks can't get no better pulse on upcomin' fashion there than I can up to my local Wal- Mart Supa-Center. The fashion world is fickle, and you got to work hard to stay on top of the trends. Now, I am a budget conscious shopper. But I'm blessed with such a flair, that I can see an idea and make it my own for pennies on the dollar. I'm so lucky.

As far as make-up and hair do's go, it seems the natural look is in again. Don't be wastin' your time doin' a whole lot of primpin' and makin' a fuss. The "I just rolled out of bed" look is what it's all about. That's great news for me, Darlin'! As far as the make-up goes, we have two options. One is the "lived in look" where you got mascara streamin' down your cheeks and lipstick smeared generally around the bottom portion of your face and neck. The other is the "natural beauty" where you just go out in all your glory just like the Good Lawrd crafted you. Both are good for bidness in my book.

As far as clothin' goes... comfort continues to be a theme that has carried over for several seasons. Simply put, "If it ain't comfortable 'nuff to sleep in, it ain't comfortable 'nuff to put on." Again we see a a simplicity in designs void of niggling details like zippers or buttons. Belts were banished years ago. Why, even footwear is crafted with this hallmark. I will say, it's past Labor Day, so it is time to put away those flip flops and don your tube socks and house shoes. Why not finish the the theme with a stained, tattered housecoat and curlers? Or for a special evening look, trade those gym shorts in for clingy sweatpants and top it oft with a sweatshirt depictin' your favorite Looney Tunes character?

Lastly, I'll say that a must have for men of a certain genre is a pair of panty hose with the legs cut oft. This is the latest vogue in millinery and you will be the shiz! Don't forget to tie the leg holes oft in two knots on top of your noggin. What a smart look. On a similar note, ladies get in the game with a Wal -Mart bag cleverly placed atop their heads...the handles tied in a classic bow. All in all, it is an exciting Fall season. Now, what you say you come on into the trailer and help me figure out what to wear to my friend girl's birthday party? Oh, it is gonna be so much fun.... I got a pair of fish nets in there and I am fixin' to make you a hat... go give her a shout at

Eve~I don't know if this is a regional thing or what. I have felt envious of a daring fashion trend sporting around certain neighbourhoods in Philly.

Ladies pull their hair back into a severe bun. Then they complement this sharp look with white tube socks and addidas velcro-closed flip-flops. What really make me jealous tho', is the flannel pajama bottoms they strut in under a nice tight t-shirt.

My hair is too short to pull back and I generally wear steel-toe or mechanic boots. But the pj look is fierce. It makes a statement, a kind of "I'm comfortable being comfortable" in so many different and neato patterns.

If I owned some nighties or pjs, I could join this class of couture. But, for now, I'll have to settle for something that most people wear in public. Daywear.

Once again, you managed to make me laugh while nodding at your profound observations. I must whole-heartedly agree that if it's not comfortable enough to sleep in, then we shouldn't be wearing it at all. Personally, I hate pants. If it was socially acceptable in this country, I would wear a kilt. My manhood yearns to hang free.

eve cleveland said...

TFY...I call her Terri ok?
Girl I am always here for you! Today is the first day of the rest of your life...umm. I just frew up a lil.

If Mama ain't happy...somebody's gonna get kilt.
