Don't Show-cha Your Chocha!

It's finally time for this week's installment of the ever-popular feature Don't Show-cha Your Chocha, in which readers send in examples of waaaayyy too high hemlines and the brave models and actresses who try to make them look normal.

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:

Four words come to mind: Classy. Elegant. Understated. Refined.

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":

I suppose you could list, like, a bra as a short dress too, but that doesn't make it right.

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.

Says Jo: Elle Macpherson is trying hard to look like it is SO FUN keeping her chocha
from seeing the light of day.


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!"

Find a chocha? Send it my way! daddylikeyblog@gmail.com

don't show-cha your chocha is funny in online catalogs on poor models who have no choice in the styling, but is just kind of pathetic in real life...

Yuss! I have waited for this ALL DAY.

Where would you wear that american apparel thing? I seems more of a 'hmm...this'll get my boyfriend going when he gets home from work' type outfit (and i use that term loosely) then something you'd wear in public. Could layer it I 'spose.
Good old AA and it's lack of modesty.

Annie Spandex said...

Lol... Let's hope that AA one is for lingerie or layering!

Rosie Unknown said...

I would totally wear the american apparel dress, if it were opaque, and with leggings or pants!

Great post, as per usual!

WendyB said...

Can I call one of my rings a short dress? Since we're calling random things short dresses now...

Tea For Two said...

Hells bells, that Tatler cover is terrible. I do hope someone got fired for that.

I live in Las Vegas, where a sizable portion of the female population seems to think that pants are just a suggestion. It gets so bad that you can tell who's had a labiaplasty just from walking behind them.

Freckle and Hyde said...

Haaaa! Love the raccoon over the chest!

The last dress is super-d-duper hidious. So is the one that Emma submitted. Not only is it way too short but it looks like the hookah smoking caterpillar from Alice In Wonderland should be perched on top of it.

The Norwegian one makes me think of bad discos. Not sure why...

:)

Genevie said...

That Versace dress on the Tatler cover is terrible. It was just as "chocha-rific" on The Beautiful Life pilot too. Erm, not that I ever watch such quality shows... Anywho, not every day we get a DSYC/Martin crossover I guess.

Sneezing would be impossible.

Actually exhaling might be impossible too.

It does beg the question though, if people insist upon wearing t-shirts as dresses then why not just go buck naked? I mean everyone's going to see your ass anyway.

Emma said...

#4 I HAVE THAT DRESS
I use it like a blouse though.
