SOCKS & SHORTS!

SOCKS & SHORTS! What, I hear you cry my dear ladies and occasional gentleman are you talking about?

I am talking about  MEN wearing SOCKS with SHORTS!

This used to be a look the older gentleman favoured but I am sorry to have to inform you that even young men are now sporting this look.

I recently had the misfortune to espy a young man who had adopted a heavy metal/rock look with his long black hair and black rocker band t-shirt.  As this rebel without a cause pushed his baby-stroller past me I was able to view what completed  his ensemble.

A pair of long mid-calf SHORTS with about 10 centimetres of hairy leg before the black SOCKS!

WHY?

This is not a good look!

I will admit that the occasional dapper senior gentleman, wearing smartly pressed linen shorts, can get away with a white knee-length sock, even better if held up by a suspender.

So I appeal to you occasional gentleman.

IF IT’S WARM ENOUGH TO WEAR SHORTS, IT’S WARM ENOUGH NOT TO WEAR SOCKS!

 

Yours Sockily

BRASSIERES & THE WRONG TROUSERS

BRASSIERES & THE WRONG TROUSERS

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, attending a ‘Spring Market’ the other day with my dear friend Veronica, I noticed A WORRYING TREND.  We all like to relax at home in our relaxing garments, ELASTICATED WAISTBANDS, vests with REINFORCED CHEST area so you don’t have to wear a BRASSIERE (not of course the occasional gentleman), (well only if you have MAN-BOOBS), LAST SUMMER’S T-SHIRTS, the dipping hem CARDIGAN your GRANNY knitted, you understand what I mean. However what we DON’T DO is wear these garments out and about IN PUBLIC!

The gentlemen were the first culprits, many of them were wearing THE WRONG TROUSERS!

My dear ladies and occasional gentleman I am going to spare you. There will NOT be any pictures, it was disturbing enough for my SENSIBILITIES and I am a WOMAN OF THE WORLD. I think we would all agree that the worst culprit is the JOGGING TROUSER, now we know they are as comfortable as wearing your PYJAMAS but that is the reason they must only be worn for PHYSICAL EXERCISE and LITTLE JOBS at home or RELAXING. 

For a gentleman in jogging trousers, there is too much ROOM FOR IDLE HANDS in those FRONT POCKETS, isn’t there ladies? Far too much JIGGLING AROUND going on!  they just cannot help themselves. One man looked as if he had borrowed his joggers from his COWS and had put them on in the dark. They were half up his TUMMY half down, twisted almost on sideways, the bottoms were heading to his KNEES not his ANKLES and they were adorned with COW POO.  not a good look for an April Spring Fayre. Although he was a SMILEY man so he’s forgiven.

There were some  lovely summery colourful ladies; one sporting a new PINK FLORAL SUMMER DRESS with spaghetti straps. Now she had bought it in her correct size. Unfortunately she had decided to wear it without underwear and her Bosoms were resting on the accompanying PINK SHINY BELT at her waist; there was a lot of Bosom!

LADIES PLEASE! Always wear a BRASSIERE or BIKINI TOP under a skimpy sundress unless you are under 9 years of age!

My congratulations go to the lady in her 60’s who was sporting a pair of SHORT YELLOW LINEN SHORTS over thick BROWN TIGHTS with a WHITE CARDIGAN over. 

How interesting and wonderful  people are, let us all go out and WEAR WHAT WE LIKE, dare to be different, experiment with COLOUR  and STYLE but always remember, KEEP YOUR BRASSIERES ON!

Yours Brassierely

Celia

p.s. I just wanted to point out that I didn’t mean I wear just an ELASTICATED WAISTBAND on its own, it is always accompanied by a trouser. C

 

 

CELIA AND VERONICA BARE ALL AT THE BEACH

CELIA AND VERONICA BARE ALL AT THE BEACH

How daring! here we are baring our toes on the beach. As you can see mine are lightly dressed in ‘PEACOCK BLUE’ unfortunately Veronica could not decide on a colour so bought several different colours of nail varnish all equally unsuitable for a lady; so has gone ‘O NATURE.

My skirt as you will note is a light blush-pink ORGANZA ORGANIC FREE-RANGE NON-IRON FABRIC WITH UNDERSKIRT TRIMMED IN BRODERIE ANGLAISE.

Veronica’s skirt is unfortunately TOO SHORT Ladies of her age should always wear their skirts over the knee.

Yours Summerly

Celia
