    I think that each of us has items in our wardrobe collections that are considered tacky, but worn the right way just work! We have a thread Fashion Don'ts but I think we need one for those things that should be a Don't but aren't!

    Vintage Gold Lame handbags - I can't help it....I buy it.
    70s Disco dresses (I'll chop them short and wear with jeans)

    I don't know if this is tacky, maybe it's more kitsch but I have my own collection of Hello Kitty. Love her and I'm thinking of adding some more products next time I visit Tokyo :blush: :heart:

    here goes...

    My knee-high chunky brown boots. I just love it when they're worn with a collared shirt over a sweater and a khaki skirt in the fall. :blush:

    My plaid "farmer"/"cowgirl" top. I can't resist. I love that sexy cowgirl look once in a while. Oh, and it's pink. Hah.

    didn't Karl Lagerfeld say there was nothing so vulgar as good taste?
    or something to that effect.

    the first thing I can think of would be anything that looks like it belongs to your retired grandad: golf jackets and trousers in crazy colours; flat-caps, fedoras, and pork-pies; old argyle sweaters; seersucker stripe or gingham check blazers in the summertime.

    and I have loads of 70s shirts in <how can put this?> questionable prints. I cant help it.

    Add me to the list of tacky gold clutch and shoe owners. I love gold, it seems to match almost anything.

    Oh yeah and and my Itis T-shirt I wear with the dog sniffing the other dog's butt. Tacky, I know, but I love it anyway. :lol:

    I need serious fashion help. :unsure:
