If you're just joining Daddy Likey, click here for an intro to the phenomenon previously and currently known as Don't Show-cha Your Chocha, and if you're like, "Yeah yeah get on with it" I'll leave you with this illuminating quote, from one of my fabulous, bilingual readers:
In Spanish, "chocar" means "to shock." Not sure about "chochar" though.
And now, time to chochar!
From Gabbi, a submission "featuring a very confused model:"
She says: If I'm going to spend $279 on a complicated grey...thing, I would like to know what I'm buying. While the description says it's a "top," this depressed-looking model with weirdly-twisted legs seems to think it's a dress. Good thing she put that black...thing (Is that a skirt?)...on underneath.
Jo sent me this one:
I just found this shining example on girl's football site, Kickette. It's Claire Merry who is currently attempting to divorce Thierry Henry for £10million. Maybe if she gets it she can buy some leggings or something to make this a whole outfit.
While visiting the American Apparel website (always a risky endeavor), reader Kate came across the next two offenders, and offered up some hilarious commentary:
This lady seems deeply troubled. Like, "Oh, God, I was changing - did you just walk in without knocking? I can't believe you'd do that. Why would you do that?" The thing that gets me most is that it is sheer. Sheer. So if by some miracle it is long enough, you can still catch a glimpse of her lady-area.
And, regarding the appropriately titled "Too-Short Tube Dress:"
They know it's too short. They know. The implications that has for my world view are terrifying.
Tessa found this at Forever 21:
I saw this dress and I felt so violated like I had actually seen this poor model's chocha. I'm not sure who feels worse about this get-up...her or me!
Reader Folu saw this Shopbop promo and determined that their normally half-naked models had staged a chocha-covering coup:
I would agree, but my inbox is still full of Shopbop offenders, including this one, from Emily:
And this, from Madoka:
And these, from Heidi:
And finally, lovely reader Alison submitted this link, which is sort of not safe for work, unless you have the kind of boss who takes kindly to pleas of "But it's a prosthetic wax pudenda!" Well, now you have to click, right?
Remember--next time you're shopping online and find yourself saying "Where are the pants?," do the right thing, send the offender to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
