Let's begin with a prime example from lovely reader Jen:
The description clearly says "tunic top" but the model is definitely strutting around in no pants and heels...and you can kind of see her butt.
Aaaaaand the back view:
From the fabulous Emma:
She says: I was looking at the D&G fall 2009 ready to wear show on style.com and thought the attached picture might be great for Don't Show-cha Your Chocha. The dress is way too small and looks like it's trying to lift off from the model.
Another reader found this gem of a dress at the bargain price of 4 for $30:
I guess if you bought 4 and sewed them together you might have a decent dress.
And on the same website, this teeny tanktop was listed under "short dresses":
Here's one from a Norwegian online clothing store:
Says Iselin: And as seen so many times before, the crossed legs. It doesn't really make it better.
A few vigilant readers sent in this chocha-licious magazine cover:
Says Andrea: I think Elle had to go real bad… Her heading should maybe have been Life, Lust, Lingerie (or lack of), and Lavatories…
Says Sam: When you have to use all your strength to keep your dress down, maybe you should find another dress.
And finally, a beautiful, classy piece from American Apparel, sent in by Oana:
Thank god for Martin, is all I'm gonna say.
As an added bonus, Emily sent in an anecdote about the chocha trend filtering down from runways to magazines to clothing racks to the formerly innocent streets of Denver, Colorado:
As I was waiting for a friend yesterday in downtown Denver, I noticed the unseasonably warm weather we were having. Suddenly, walking down the street toward me was a girl wearing a shirt. I think maybe she thought it was a dress, but I can assure you it was not. Part of me REEEEALY wanted to pull out my cell phone and take a photo of this hot mess, but the adult part of me refrained. All I could think of was the Don't Show-cha Your Chocha series on Daddy Likey. Because I saw hers, or would have if it weren't for the underwear. Girlfriend's buns were hanging out the back and, while walking normally, she was flashing every person walking in the opposite direction. And then she ran to catch a bus, and it took all my willpower not to yell, "Put on some pants!"
