Fashion Roadkill of the Day: Vol 23
UPDATE: I've been thinking about it and you know what, having five different flavours of toothpaste isn't quite enough. Who is Marvis kidding, that doesn't even cover the whole week. I'm so glad that somebody thought about it this way before I did and created the Margaret Josefin breath palette. With 31 flavours, you can go for a whole month without repetition. Mallrat, you'll be pleased to know that bitter chocolate is in there (no. 25). No honeycomb though, you'll have to make do with honey (no. 8).
Lately I've been getting visually assaulted by ladies proudly wearing their winter whites. In particular, white stockings paired with white shoes, when the owners aren't even nurses or runaway brides.
As you may well know, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas of the world. The average population density is 6,250 per square kilometre and in some areas it can go up to 200,000 per square kilometre. That's not a lot of room to move about in. Inevitably people are going to get in each other's way and toes will get stepped on. By the time the crowds are done with them, your white shoes will be looking decidedly offoffoffwhite:
I want to spare these ladies the fate of being transformed from pristine ice princess to filthy sludge scullery maid. Therefore I'd like to introduce that rule about not wearing white shoes before Easter or after Labor Day into Hong Kong. Then amend it so that it applies to ANY time of the year and have an expensive government campaign built around it. Something along the lines of the tv campaigns in North Korea to promote state-approved haircuts. Can you believe they ran after people with a camera to capture their fashion indiscretions? Absurd!
I would be delighted to host similar tv segments in Hong Kong and demonstrate what shoes can and can't be worn. For example, I approve of shoes in this colour:
However the rest of the outfit has to go. Since when did we become a nation, or more accurately speaking a Special Administrative Region, of mimes?
