Say it Ain't So.
I went to the mall on my lunch to return a few things. While I was there, I saw one of the worst trends for spring. Ladies, the PLEATED formal short. Yes, PLEATED. As if the formal short wasn't bad enough on its own. There in the BeBe window was the white stick lady with no face sporting the PLEATED formal shorts that you're supposed to pair with a silky button up top. If I see any of you at the BB on Saturday sporting a pleated formal short, I'll, well, I don't know what I'll do, but I won't be happy about it. (The following is not the pleated version, but I couldn't find what I saw in the store anywhere on the website.)

Kami and I were just talking about that on Saturday. She still swears there is no such thing as a formal short. But I kept telling her that it was going to be in this year. It's in all the fashion mags. But no way am I wearing them. First of all they are too damn short. Second of all I am not wearing pleated anything.

Well, crap. I guess I have to return my BB outfit.

Please explain what a formal short is. So confused...

Thank you for the visual. How are those considered 'formal'?? Oh goody, more shorty-short-shorts for the 'heftier' percentage of the population to try to squeeze into. (oh my, I'm being mean now) hee-hee-hee

Formal as in Prom or Black Tie? Shorts? No Way.

Nappy Taffy-

Before someone explains "formal" shorts can we go back a minute to "pleated" and also cover the part that all men missed in class...about the "skort"

Thanks :)

Damn it and it took me months to figure what I am going to wear and finally decided on the pleated front formal shorts.

Damn what can I wear now!

Just kidding that look is awful~

Flutter, who might end up wearing a paper bag if she doesnt come up with an outfit before she leaves for Austin on Thursday!

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

Who makes this shit up anyway?

Blogger suburban mom said...

Oh my.

I will not be sporting that look.

I don't even believe in shorts anymore.

I *might* do some of those long shorts (to just above the knee) that seem to be in.

Dude, if I was rockin' those legs, I'd wear shorts all the time. But sadly, I am not, so the "short" of any kind, be it formal or otherwise, is my arch nemesis.

Move over Bradley

Blogger Tx Mom said...

Agreed. Formal shorts are ridiculous and pleated anything looks bad.

Blogger Lucky Lum said...

I WANT HER LEGS! If I had her legs it wouldn't matter what kind of shorts I wore because no one would be looking at them anyway!

I so do not get the formal short. I don't understand. Shorts by their very nature imply casual. Enough said.

Oh, yes, the ladies at Go Fug Yourself just hate the 'formal' shorts and have quite the field day with ladies who wear them. Not me, not ever.

Blogger Lisa said...

I think women ought to wear their crocks with these pleaded shorts. ANd a poncho to go with. (Uck!)
