Friday’s Faux Paw

I think that everybody should know about this faux paw already but time and time again I see this horrible crime against fashion occurring everywhere! This affront applies to men, women, children, even dogs – wearing clothes that do not fit! Have I not taught you anything? There is nothing so unattractive as to see a woman or man wearing a dress shirt and the buttons look like they are about to pop off and hit me in the eye. You can’t help but stare at the person’s chest which is especially uncomfortable if the human in question is female. Or watching a woman wearing a dress with seams straining that makes me afraid if she makes one false move I am going to be seeing a lot more than I’d like to. Maybe a male human won’t mind but you’re not my type as I am a dog. Please for the love of everything, buy clothes that fit you. If you have put on a few pounds this Christmas (as I too am guilty of) and an article of clothing no longer fits, then temporarily “retire” it until you lose the weight. Another option is give the piece of clothing away to someone who needs it more and buy a replacement that fits. My Mom Joelle has a problem buying button-up shirts that fit as she is small in the waist but broad shouldered with a larger bust. So she has to buy a button-up that fits her bust and shoulders and gets the waist taken in by a tailor. Follow her example and do the same. With any piece of clothing make sure it fits you in your largest spot and get the rest taken in. It is much easier for a tailor to take an a garment in than to let it out. No more peep shows, okay?

  1. Thank you for blogging about this! I witness this crime on a daily basis both ways: too big or too small. I know many people have this strange belief that if they wear smaller clothing they will look smaller, but, as you see in the photos, it does quite the opposite! Why not feel good & look good by just wearing the right size? I know a lot of people hate shopping, don’t have the budget, etc. But, I believe there is always a way. Appearance is everything; therefore, investing in a wardrobe that fits is well worth it ;D

    • No problem. Many people think they can squeeze into something that is way too small for them and you’re correct, they actually look bigger than they truly are. Thanks for your comment. Good luck with your blog! Woof.
