For I am a Fashion Snob

Big no-nos for me.

1) Getting out of the house with wet hair. Or greasy hair.
But of cos, there’re are case of exception, I know. People don’t have all the time in the world to dry their hair, unlike me.

2) Wearing skirts with sports shoes (a rarity these days, thank goodness) unless you’re a JC student.

3) Man with jeans and slippers. Maybe not only slippers. with sport shoes too. (by that, I mean almost-all-the-time)
The footwear is important. Very very important. Leather shoes or loafers sometimes?

4) Boots in Singapore.
Maybe that’s why I’m finding it a refreshing idea to be able to wear them in the UK. Cos, in Singapore, they just seem very odd… I think boots goes best with a coat, that goes below the hips. And of cos, boots have to have stilettoes. Read: diameter of less than 0.5cm.

5) Ill-fitted clothes. So don’t get too hung up on “I’m not buying this in a M! I’m suppose to be a S”
We don’t buy clothes in a smaller size just to make ourselves feel better. The size on the tag of you clothes should not be the issue. The question is, does this flatter me?

6) Furs and excessive prints.
I love leopard prints. But I think it’s a “less is more ” thing. So I don’t really get the whole “leopard print dress” concept. And no real fur! Faux fur is good for me. That’s the down side of some fashion houses that take pride in their real fur deals. For me, that’s a big no-go. Though I wonder why am I not a vegeterian then?

Hmm, then again, maybe I’m not a fashion snob. Just vain.
Besides, we all have our own little list of fashion no-nos and I’m sure I’ll be on one of your list (i.e. No heels/cleavage/stockings…!”)!

We all have our list of Fashion Faux Pas. What’s yours?

    lols, interesting. but mainly i try to dress to transgress.

    v sian lei i rli need a miracle on mon… argh. and yes, i have been dreaming abt someone for a few days too, that sucks. facebook is such a (?) distraction. sigh. yes, the more mysterious, the more seductive, that means that there’s no need to be up close right, voyeuristic consumption (even mediated through the screen. oh, its a screen society now) will also work?? should i work on urban instead since cultural is a bit er… (remember last sem i said i needed viagra for my brains?)

    Haha, greasy hair is a nono for me, but I step out of the house many a times with wet hair cause my hair takes darn long to dry. hahahahha.
    And I think my taste is tending towards basic colours and patterns. How predictable. heh.

    Mr Q> I love your hair now! I like the colour. And when I tell u it’s nice, it’s nice! I’m driven by aesthetic, rem?

    Papersky> haha, I beg to differ! basic colours and patterns are not predictable! like Houndstooth is quite a classic pattern, but it’s refreshing at the same time. I like it to be worn as stockings!
