Friend Friday - Fashion Do's & Don'ts

Hello and welcome to another installment of Friend Friday! This has been such a great way for all of us bloggers to communicate on current issues in the blogosphere. Katy Rose, moderator of ModlyChic, sends us pertinent questions to what's going on in the fashion world each week. We all link up and answer them on Friday! If you are a blogger and are interested in joining, you can check it out here.
This week we are talking about the Do's and Don'ts of Fashion.

1. What do you think are some of the top fashion don’ts? (Things you would never be caught dead in and cringe when other people wear them.) See exhibit A! Socks with sandals - any type of sandals and socks is a definite no-no. If your complaint is that your feet are cold, then put on some REGULAR SHOES! Christmas sweaters or sweaters with cats on them - worn in all sincerity and not at my annual Tacky Sweater Christmas Party.
Also, a BIG BIG BIG no-no for me (and I will offend many people when I say this) No pajama pants in public! I don't care if they are comfortable. I don't care if they have Sponge Bob Square Pants on them. I don't want to see what you night sweated in.
2. What previous fashion don’t do you now wear with pride? I...really...can't think of any. If it was previously a don't and I'm not wearing it, then clearly it is a DO.
3. Do you think there is a universal fashion do? YES. It's called fashion dignity. This means always looking your personal best. Oh, and pearl earrings. Any woman in any style can pull these off. 
4. What items lately, either recently in style or coming in now, do you think should never make it off the retail shelves? A jean dress. Unfortunately, they still make these for plus sized women and advertise them as "fashionable" for them. That's an injustice. Also, some of the over exaggerated 80's neon gear. 
5. In your opinion, is there any blogger, fashion icon, celebrity who some how manages to pull off some fashion don’ts and still look good? Yes, The Olsen Twins. I love their style. They can do the don'ts so well. 


  1. No PJs in public! Yes, I agree with that one. And a lot of other bloggers have mentioned the sandal with sock thing. It's just bad news all around. - Katy

  2. Totally agree with all of this... :) especially, the PJ's and the sandals with socks *cringe*

  3. I totally agree with jean dresses, I don't dig them at all. I also think pearl earrings are a universal do...so is a pearl necklace!

  4. YES! Great minds think alike with the flipflop/toe sock pic! This should never happen - EVER! :)

  5. I did a post on my blog a while back of no pajamas in public because I see it all the time. Simply the worst.
