It’s the Pinocchio Party!

By Manolo the Shoeblogger


Manolo says, it is the truism, bad fashion never disappears, it merely comes back in the different color.

    I know this is nothing to do in this forum but I always find myself reading at your messages in here. I found myself that I’m loving it like I love tickling. So now I am always here and posting what I can feel about this site, its good isn’t it?

    ::gran sospiro::

    Perhaps it is just as well that the Annalucia has not the figure of a fashion model; nobody can bully her into wearing the ridiculous and ugly clothes. Tell me, dear Manolo, these designers: what are they thinking? Do they secretly hate the women and wish to humiliate them by draping them in these monstrosities? Or perhaps they think of themselves as bold and edgy Modern Artists who pose their works against the human body as opposed to the large canvas square. Either way, the Annalucia feels that the designers have somehow…missed the point…of their alleged vocation.

    Oh dear, Oh dear, Oh dear… This one leaves me nearly speechless. Who dumped the ice cream cone on the poor girls’ head?

  4. The Scarlett Says:

    The Scarlett has taken a mental picture of this garment. Now if The Scarlett has to ever speak in public, she will imagine her entire audience wearing this outfit; This will guarantee that she won’t be intimidated!

    Now, what to do when she bursts out laughing instead?

  5. jrochest Says:

    This Malaysian designer’s look is reminiscent of the Hong Kong dress the Manolo listed back in July.

    So, are all designers in south-east Asia insane? Is someone trying to create a new trend? Are they fighting for Global Ugly Fashion Supremacy?

    I am breathless with wonder.

    I think I’m seeing the plot for the next Batman movie: the Joker has insidiously taken over major fashion houses and is foisting these noxious garments on an unsuspecting public. Wearing of these garments causes the IQ of both the wearer and the observer to drop by several points. Oh, and the Lagerfeld makes a cameo as the demented sidekick….

    I’m reminded of how crushed poor Bertie Wooster was when he thought the shop was out of Sinbad the Sailor costumes and he might have to go to the fancy dress party kitted out as a dreaded Domino.

    Perhaps the miserable expression is part of the outfit too?

    Ok. Here’s the deal…I don’t want to give this “Tickling” any more hype or free publicity, but people, if you are at work DON’T CLICK THE LINK!!! Don’t do it!! Its not work safe (or even remotely decent for that matter)!!
    I know, I know…now that I’ve said something, you can’t help *but* click…I know how it goes…Its like a car crash…you don’t *want* to look, but you don’t have a choice…
    Just remember that I warned you….
