I Sooo Want To Ask Peacebang About This...

Abomination or merely cause for eye-bleaching?

I'm chortling to myself, trying to imagine Peacebang's commentary on these outfits, over at Beauty Tips For Ministers.

Dress up for church!, she exhorts...

I think it's beautiful art! And remember, everyone: "Dress up for church" is my message to CLERGY. So don't yell at me, it's too early.

But seriously: all high-concept fashion isn't to be taken seriously as something you or I would actually wear. It's meant to provoke interest and invoke an aesthetic that will translate in real person's terms as a tiny adjustment to our hemlines, collars, shoe style, etc.

Thanks for the fun!

Yell? At a minister? At Peacebang?

Egads, never.

And it wasn't early, it was late. But you'd apparently stomped off to watch "The Departed."

Hmphf.

I've sacrificed my eyes again, just to be sure. I can't imagine the tiny adjustment here. You're talking, I suppose, about the application of the Overton window concept to fashion. But the trainwreck between a bad poodle cut in knit and tummy support underwear... it's unimaginable (ok, no... I just really don't want to imagine where that might erupt into teenybopper fashion sensibilities. I remain confident that Peacebang would be tutting about wearing something like that (clergy or not) to church. Don't disabuse me--we mythical beings have to maintain our fantasies).
