This wasn't exactly a fashion crime - just a crime of lacking tact...

I was driving the other day and had just gotten off the freeway. I stopped at the light and noticed there was a woman in the car next to me who was pulling out her upper lip hair with tweezers! The best part was the face she was making. So hilarious.

The thing that gets me about goths and punks are... they think they're being so individual, when, in reality, there are sooo many people nowadays who dress like that. And they can't possibly be happy with the way they look (greasy hair is not only disgusting, but shows they don't know how to take showers)!

Also, I have to admit that I like Juicy. It has to be worn the right way, though. For example, I would NEVER have the word Juicy across my butt, but I think Juicy suits are good for everyday wear.

I saw someone w/ heathered gray spandex biker shorts on w/ an oversized t-shirt and a fanny pack. NEVER, EVER wear heathered gray spandex!! Even if you are going to the gym. Absolutely the most unflattering thing any woman can wear even if your stick thin!

In her case, she may not be a fashion victim. She may have just lacked any fashion sense at all. I suppose there is a difference. Right?

Anyhow, thought I'd share

There is a huge difference... I would say she didn't have the slightest hint of fashion sense.

My friend and I walked behind these two guys, both wearing the same bright colored polos (one green, one orange)..destroyed jeans and sandals..for literally 6 or so blocks they kept adjusting and popping up their collars.
I can picture that... I bet they were even wearing signature Abercrombie and Fitch colonge- jeez.

^You're probably talking about two different things. I don't think she was talking about "fashionable" gothic/punk style.

Saw a girl wearing all denim. The jacket said "Baby Phat" in rhinestones or some crap.

So many girls in school & around town wearing pseudo Paris Hilton mini skirts. Not that hers are any better. You know, the kind she wears on TSL, cheap fabric and ruffles galore. Each trying to outdo the other to win miss skanky with the most visible skin title. Ehhh.

Right. Which is why the show "How Do I Look?" is so screwed. They call the people on their show "fashion victims", when the only real fashion victims on the show are the host and stylists.
