There's nothing like a triumphant blogging comeback, but it's even better when it involves chochas (sidenote: Has a rapper trademarked the phrase "Everything's better with chochas" yet or can I snag that for a confusing, sexually charged blog slogan?), and, more specifically, Don't Show-cha Your Chocha!
I think the first photo and caption perfectly sum up this feature, so I'm gonna jump right in:
Says Jeni: The way she's standing she looks like she's trying to hold something in...perhaps her modesty.
I can't tell if the bottom is shorts or a skirt, but either way, I'm worried.
Says Nicole: I came across this tonight while trying to purchase overpriced linen pants from J.Crew and immediately thought "Don't show your cha-cha!"
[Editor's note: My mom and her group of friends also use the term "cha-cha" interchangeably with "chocha," and, like in this case, I can't tell if it's an intentional, charming alternative or a mix-up. I sort of love it.]
Beth found what is perhaps the most artful Don't Show-cha Your Chocha on record:
Says Beth: It looks like she's trying to hold down her dress AND hold her hair on. yikes! (In other news, the next time my friend Katelyn complains about how hard it is for her to find a long enough inseam, I will print out this picture and give it to her. I mean, good god, I would be able to make eye contact with this girl's kneecap.)
From Tessa, via Betsey Johnson:
The perfect dress for girls who like to stand...a lot...no, seriously, like, all the time. Would you like to try to sit down in that thing?
Jo-Anne brought my attention to this fantastic photo, and provided a fantastic description of the subject, Phoebe Price:
Hey saw this hilarious post of this wannabe celebrity phoebe price on dlisted. She goes to that same restaurant and poses out front every day. She gets a scrape on her car and poses with it!!! Anyways look at the dress! She's coming a little too close to showin' it.
Diligent DSYC officer Amber tracked down these next two offenders:
I titled this image "velvet chocha," and felt quite dirty after typing it.
You know how they say eyes are windows to the soul? Well, that triangular cut-out there seems to be a window to the chocha.
So, this "dress" being eaten by the model's crotch, courtesy of our old friend Shopbop, was featured in the last installment of DSYC, but I've gotten so many emails about it, and it's just so strange/horrifying, that I feel compelled to post it again, along with some choice reader commentary:
Anne: This is so horrible. I hope the $319 buys you a little black "censored" box to put in front of your ladyparts.
Livia: The description says 'Chicly sophisticated with a distinctly modern vibe'. Distinctly modern vibe? I say it's a distinctly chocha vibe.
Remember, the next time you're browsing online and catch yourself thinking "Egad! [admit it--you totally think "Egad"] If that model so much as reaches for a tortilla chip, she's doing full frontal!," email email@example.com
