The Intent of Tights Makers

Granted that there are some people who can pull off wearing tights as a bottom wear, it is not advisable as it is one of the most cringed-worthy items if worn wrongly. Tights are not made to replace pants. The culprits of this mistake are people with unflattering shapes. This is too noticeable when they wear tights with tops that have its length to the waist, but I guess they clearly do not mind. Should I praise them for their nonchalant attitudes or mock them for being irresponsible? Some would say it's none of my business but I would counter that because as long as my eyes are made for looking and I can see this eye sore of a clothing, I am permitted to have an opinion. What prompted this post was as a result of seeing a lady at a mall who wore a nude color pair of tights as a replacement for pants. For a second I thought she had forgotten to wear pants. I was shocked as other onlookers were until my eyes adjusted a bit and I realized I was looking at a skin colored article and not bare skin. Talk about open sexual harassment to men in a public place like the mall. I was bothered that she wasn't bothered to have made such a fashion mistake. Tights were originally made to be worn underneath something like dresses, skirts, and lengthy tops. Even though some individuals love and pull off the tight-only look, it is not for everyone! Also, nude colored clothing items are mostly worn as under-garment. Try to make more wise choices when you choose to wear tights. Spare those around you some embarrassment.

GG's Chuck Bass


2011 has been a year of adding new shows to my already existing list, making it a bunch of shows to impossibly follow up on TV. It's quite sad that I didn't find many shows boring so I could easily eliminate some from my list. Instead, most of the shows I already watch got better with time. And they weren't looking to ending them any time soon. So what I find myself doing is catching up later online. This happened with Season 5 of Gossip Girl. I caught up in one lazy day and it was fabulous. I was amazed to see my ever trend-setting Chuck Bass still with his remarkable suited styles that always made me wonder how he is able to pull them off every single time. Sometimes I think, if only politicians spiced up their look like Chuck Bass does. Don't ask me why I think that way. But I personally find politics way off my thinking radar and I pay more attention to the tailored suits worn by the individuals than what they are talking about. Talk about color, fabric, styles, blocking, Chuck does them all. I was really glad to be watching GG for my favorite actor's demeanor in those suits. That character was well thought of and executed in a stylish professional manner that I like to call "above the common." Chuck reminds me of some men in suits captured by Scott Schuman in his "The Sartorialist" book. I'm sure Scott would approve of the "umph" factor that Chuck brings to dressing up. I look forward to the many styles of Chuck. Who knows, I may start a Chuck Bass Suiting Up Diary for the fun of it.

Super Good Looking People These Days on TV


Is this a trend or what? When I watch movies from the sixties I can see major differences between the actors of those days and the actors now. There are distinct language differences and different ways of dressing, but that's not my focus. My focus is on how the actors of those days seemed to have been chosen for their talents rather than their looks. This does not seem to be the case for most movies and TV shows of these days. TV shows are worse in my opinion. The casts are too good looking and most people find themselves watching these shows to bask in the beauties of these individuals not the story of the shows. The worst thing is that most of these shows have cheesy plots and bad story lines. The shows tend to lack uniqueness and the acting is a nightmare. But dedicated fans would want to see that piercing pair of eyes, or hear that voice, or see those guns, or shiver from the swag. Basically, they enjoy watching the shows for the good looking casts. This is superficial and I don't think it is going to end anytime soon. At least, movie and TV shows script writers should opt for better stories as well. Is it too much to ask? I would like to talk about a movie or an episode of a show and stick mainly to the stories more often. It would be nice for a change. One of my friends opposes  this, and this is what she said. "It may look very superficial and unreal to you, but I like! If I were in charge of casting, I would do the same. People need to watch the show and fine people are good enough reasons."
