Don't Show-cha Your Chocha: I'm Not Dead Edition

OK, OK, I didn't actually die and go to heaven, although the figure of speech provided an extremely convenient excuse for my failure to blog (not to be confused with Failure to Launch--there was no excuse for that). In reality, I'm taking a memoir writing class that's totally kicking my ass, and making me write a whole bunch of stuff that isn't fashion blogs.

I think that, in order to make up for my irresponsible prioritizing, a Saturday installment of Don't Show-cha Your Chocha is in order!
Let's just dive right in:

The lovely Binny explains her submission: I came across this while on ebay in my search for knee high stiletto boots....yeah, don't ask.

The oldest fashion advice in the book: When your hand is the only thing between your private region and the world, put on pants.

Next up, an awesome find from ShopBop, the shopping site that keeps DSYC thriving:

Cate's description is priceless: Her expression seems to indicate that a stiff breeze just invaded the studio where they're shooting, chilling areas never chilled before.

Oh my god, I love this one (also from Shopbop...):

So, this dress has an adjustable hem. If you're having an exhibitionist type of day, just zip off the yellow part and off you (and your modesty) go! Says Folu, who found this gem: The caption on the website says it's "Statement Making Chic," and it's obvious it really poses more of a question: "How much do you want to show-cha your chocha?"

This dress prompted Claire to create a delightful High Fashion Haiku/Don't Show-cha Your Chocha hybrid:

Were this dress shorter
This poor girl would be exposed
Models, I'm sorry.

In keeping with that theme, and perhaps expanding on it to include, "Fashion show audiences, I'm sorry," behold this Marc Jacobs creation:

Natasha sums it up: Can you imagine the view from the front row?

And last but not least, Betty sent me a link to this post, which definitely had me saying, "Model, I'm sorry." (Not safe for work--a chocha was show-chaed.)

Send me your DSYC finds!

I wonder whose idea that last one was...the models? the designers? or the stylists? I mean seriously, there must be someone with a pair of hotpants somewhere backstage...couldn't they give the girl some briefs and less grief?

I love DYSC! And on that last one, a chocha was indeed showchaed! Looked like leapord print panties to me or maybe the chocha was specially dyed for the occassion?

Julianne said...

That "statement making chic" one is particularly hideous. Half a zip on my hem? I don't think so!

the showcha'd chocha (or should that be in quotes?) was, i believe, the designer's idea - i saw that picture and thought, "i've seen that somewhere before..."
