What Not to Wear or Would You?

This Monday morning I was blog hopping and one particular post caught my attention -
"What Sweater Not to Wear to the Office."

When I was doing work-place seminars, I had a presentation on "What Not to Wear to the Office."  So naturally, the previously mentioned blog sounded interesting even though I no longer dress for the office. Thank goodness, hallelujah, Praise the Lord, etc!

There are many fashions that seem to be acceptable today whether for the office or not that a few years ago would have been totally taboo.

I found a few of these, so lets see what you think.

Would you wear them?

This is the sweater trend that the initial blog post suggested should stay out of the office.
The see-through or cold-shoulder sweater.
 Would you wear it?  Maybe with a shell or camisole under it?

This outfit has so much not right about it.
 First of all, I don't understand the gray patches on the shoulders and cuffs.  The see-through peak holes are so ill advised for the woman over 20; however it can be yours for $750!
And that skirt!  I suppose when a skirt gets too old or too tight, just rip off the waist band and cut a slit up the front.  I find it hard to believe someone is going to pay for this but they will.

While on the subject of denim, do you ever cuff your jeans?  I never have and really don't care for the look.  But I see it often.  What do you think?
 Silk slip dresses were the thing on many fashion blogs for spring, and the slinky piece is sticking around for fall as well. This gown is on sale at KOHL's right now for $40.00.
Think how versatile it could be.  You can sleep in it, wear it to garden wedding, or combine it with all sort of accessories for this look.
What do you think?
Would ja, could ja!

Should none of these excite you for fall then perhaps some of these outfit combinations will inspire you.  I kid you not, these were among the best outfits recommended for fall last week by designer Lauren Eggersten.
 And the item to top off all your fall outfits might be this velvet-bow enhanced pair of shoes
 for only $755.

All of these would fit into my category of
"What Not to EVER Wear"!

But, what about you?  Did you see anything that will find it's way into your fall wardrobe?

"Rest your hope fully on the grace that is brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ."
1 Peter 1:13


  1. Oy vey, I wouldn't wear any of it. Never could figure out why some clothes are just so ugly and unflattering. Is someone pulling our collective legs? Is it about making fools of women and laughing all the way to the bank? ugh... I know that you are too much of a lady to be seen in any of this nonsense.

  2. What silly outfits. It is truly laughable to think people would spend that much money to look so tacky. The jeans are the nicest of all the pics. I do wear the boyfriend jeans, but I prefer them without the cuff.

  3. OH..MY...GOODNESS...You would like to hope that these outfits are meant to be jokes or funny, but not with those prices. I have never understand the "designer" stuff like that. And of course I personally have NEVER seen any regular person wear anything so ridiculous. But someone must be huh? lol Enjoyed this.


I do love reading your comments, so please share your thoughts with me.
