It's time for this week's installment of Don't Show-cha Your Chocha, in which Daddy Likey readers fight the good fight against the wearing of shirts as dresses, the hoisting of hems above the ladyparts, and the painfully awkward posing models must do in order to avoid showing said ladyparts.
Let's start things off with this gem from Ashley:
Next up, from Sally:
Ah, kate moss. A woman who just loves her chocha so much, she puts it out there for everyone to bask in its chocha glow, at a chocha parade. In a nude dress.
Reader Paisley turned in frequent offender Sienna Miller:
She says: Of note is Sienna's purse, which serves double duty in that it is used as a "hem pad" to keep the hemline firmly pressed in place lest a lucky photographer capture a photo for a different genre of "September Issue".
From the inimitable Thom Wong:
The next two are from Devora:
She says: This first one, that looks like a cross between old lady stockings and a mosquito net, is very unfortunate. I want to give her a parka and some sweatpants, the poor thing!
Does it count if a dress might be a decent length but the model has it hiked up like she's going to the bathroom?
Summer sent in the following three images, adding: Was just looking through The Sartorialist for some style inspiration and decided that even Mr. Sartorialist enjoys a good chocha-riffic ensemble, as long as it's chic-chocha.
From hesitant but vigilant reader Pam:
She says: I hate to send you this, because I have a mad girl crush on Diane Kruger and would defend her honor, spindly legs, and even her choice to appear in movies with Nicolas Cage, but this picture from French Elle is too chochariffic not to share.
Leva found this audacious almost-chocha:
The lovely Clare submitted this charming photo:
She says: This is far too much chocha for a 15-year-old girl. I shudder to think what the cotton string-lookin'-thing is hanging out of her "dress". At first I'm thinking it's a tampon string, but I don't know if Taylor is even old enough to be getting our favorite monthly visitor. Blerg.
Reader Katie gets extra credit for submitting a video of DANCING CHOCHAS:
She says: It makes me giggle, because this girl is in an incredibly tight chocha squeezer, and yet she tries miserably to lift her leg! [Editor's note: actually "tight chocha squeezer is my new favorite phrase.]
And finally, Angelica sent me something so incredible that it improved my life by a factor of 100: a Don't Show-cha Your Chocha t-shirt design by her talented friend Rowena!
Says Angelica: I thought the "Don't Show-Cha Your Chocha" feature on your blog was hilarious, so I got my friend Rowena to design me a "Don't Show-Cha Your Chocha" t-shirt. It's best worn while walking on Broadway in SoHo, or on the Upper East Side.
Seriously, how awesome is that? Thanks so much, ladies! I'm definitely gonna have this printed on a tee and wear it around Portland's west side, if that's permissible. Pictures to come!
