Don't Show-cha Your Chocha!

It's time for this week's installment of Don't Show-cha Your Chocha, also known as Proof of the Imminent Extinction of the Bottom Half of the Outfit (click here for a slightly better explanation). I've been getting tons--TONS--of fantastic submissions, so don't fret if you don't see yours here yet--there's plenty more chocha where this came from!

Let's kick off this party with an amazing eBay find from Wendy B:


Not sure I'd want a shirt that had been so intimate with the previous wearer...

From Eunice:

She says: Leave it up to the much anticipated Forever21 plus size line to come up with a plus size Don't Show-cha Your Chocha.

Katie Holmes makes another appearance on DSYC this week:

A clever reader says: Oh no! I suppose since she is supposed to be in dance training that this is considered edgy. I can imagine her doing lots of heel toeing with her thighs pressed firmly together!

Tavi spotted this chocharific lil' number in Alexander Wang's resort collection (she reiterates: A. WANG's resort collection):

Not sure what kind of resort that skirt is appropriate for...

Elizabeth saw this picture in the paper (No Pants Weekly, perhaps?) and sent it my way:

She says: Too late for Jessica Bratich - girlfriend of an Aussie cricketer and aspiring hooker.

Fabulous reader Sterling came across these outfits and automatically thought "DSYC":

Yep, definitely DSYC material. Thanks, Sterling!

From Pea Jai:

She says: Jaslene (from ANTM) throws caution and chocha to the wind with her daring fashion choices.

Here's one from Thomas W., aka Captain Awesome:

I stared at this picture for around five minutes, trying to figure out if those are teeny tiny silk shorts, or the end of a teeny tiny silk shirt. I'm actually not sure if either of those would be OK.

And finally, Francine submitted this totally sensible and respectable dress that happens to say "respect" on it:

This "dress" is from amiclubwear.com, which I contend is the best website on the internet. Mainly because this is one of their more conservative dresses, and their motto is "The Positive Place for Girls."

Don't Showcha Your Chocha is my favourite part of the week.

Tara said...

I find it funny that the amiclubwear dress has 'Respect' written on the front. Because you can REALLY take someone seriously in a chochariffic dress like this.

Tavi said...

I care not for big fashion publications, but making it on Don't Showcha Your Choca?! I've made it, guys. I have.

Seriously though, I love Alex, but a designer with such a last name should not create skirts that are just BEGGING for offensive puns. Just sayin'.

I wonder if that ebay shirt will actually find a new home? I hope it gets washed first at any rate.

WendyB said...

AHHH! I'd forgotten about that dress/top/thing and the trauma had died down. Now the nightmares will be back!

It's on eBay AND touching her apparently bare ass. The grossness of that is overwhelming.

A memo regarding the scooped wrap skirts one has been seeing in this feature as of late:

Whilst the rest of the wrap-skirt loving world is trying to find clever ways to hold it together on a windy day, some designers seem hell-bent on throwing it all out out there without taking the chance that the weather might not cooperate with their plans for exposure. One is compelled to ask herself, WHY? No sufficient answers have presented so far, just more questions.

Which came first: the cho-cha minded fashion or the rise in bikini waxing?

It is a circular logic. Or perhaps a conspiracy.

The Amiclubwear dress is not only chocariffic, but one sudden move away from being nipple-bearing as well. What I want to know is, how the heck did she fit a push-up bra under there?

jennine said...

How do you pronounce chocha?

Excellent question! It's "Cho" as in Margaret Cho, and then "cha" as in "do the cha-cha!" Did that make sense at all?

i subscribed to your blog after reading about it on academichic. this is the first post i read. i have made a good choice in subscribing.

i suppose we've plumbed the depths of cleavage-showing and now we need a new frontier. shudder. . . .

alcopoppy said...

Will there be a Halloween specific DSYC?!

Anonymous said...

Yes it make sense! I feel less dumb now. Thank you.

Michelle said...

Oh, Katie Holmes. What a hot mess you are!

MizzJ said...

Good lord that last dress is something else! In fact this sentence is longer than that dress.

Btw I'm giving away a pair of ZNA zipper leggings from Chickdowntown - check out my blog to enter! http://highmaintenancewoman.blogspot.com/2009/09/get-fresh-for-fall-with-chickdowntown.html

(hope nobody will bare some chocha wearing these)

Adrienne said...

lololololol I've been reading all of your chocha posts and laughing for the last ten minutes.

I think the pink polka dot and purple striped dress are from Carnie Couture on Etsy. Just FYI.
