Heads up, everyone. A little rat told me the Fashion Police are cracking down extra hard this year.
Figures. Just when I ran out of makeup remover.
Fashion Police Crackdowns Aren’t a New Tradition
Sometimes fashion officers will meet an entire year’s quota by going all out on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. They like to compete to see who can set a new record.
These mug shots, public records for everyone and their brother to view, provide hard evidence of vintage fashion faux pas. I must admit they look trendy for their time period, so perhaps they committed the goofy smile no-no. See below.
Those vintage jailbirds are the lucky ones. They were arrested pre-Judge Judy days.
Word on the Street: There Will Be Check Points on Every Corner
So, beware. With Fashion Police out in full force, I advise we hunker down and wait it out at home.
Some people love to be risk takers. These baggy tunics could conceal a keg of beer or two:
Pay close attention to the couple below.
What’s with the hippie look? Is it replacing the ugly sweater trend?
Looks like someone’s not happy:
Uh-oh, double trouble:
I admit I’ve been fined by the fashion police in the past. Here’s one fashion faux pas, but it was a minor infraction. It’s amazing I wasn’t arrested for my Funky Foo Foo Updo, but I have a feeling they mistook me for a tree.
Grammy advises staying home like the good people in this retro video from 1960. They just so happen to be my grandparents, their next-door neighbors, and my uncle and his friends:
What are you doing for New Year’s? Are you getting all decked out and going somewhere special? Staying home? Having company? Committing a fashion crime?
Whatever you decide to do, I wish you a safe and Happy New Year, and may you gather a nice collection of shiny treasures as you reach for the stars and fulfill your dreams in the coming year. Cheers to a healthy, amazing, and prosperous 2018!
Great humor Lynn! I will keep an eye out for the Fashion police this New Years!
Fun post, as always, made me laugh! You have some really crazy pictures for this blog!
I’m so glad the post made you laugh, Mom. Yes, I’m always on the lookout for crazy and fun pictures. Happy New Year to you and Dad! XOXOXO
Glad we’re staying home this year. Those fashion police would surely nab me!
Haha! Glad you’re staying home, safe and sound, Kass! Those fashion police need to chill out and give us a break! Happy New Year, and thank you for stopping in!
The fashion police would have to see under our very thick coats and scarves… that is if we were heading out this evening. Instead, the New Year will be greeted from the cozy confines of our living room, cats curled up on either side of us, and a glass of eggnog on the end table. A perfect way to end one journey and start another…
That said… I loved the videos!
Hello Eden! Sounds like you live in the colder climate and bundling up adds a whole other dimension to going out on New Year’s. Your plans to stay home sound perfect! Yes, best way to end one journey and start another. You have a knack for writing, even in leaving a comment on a blog. I love it. Thanks for stopping in. Happy New Year!
