Don't Show-cha Your Chocha!

Once again it's time Don't Show-cha Your Chocha!, the recurring feature in which vigilant Daddy Likey readers submit examples of fashionistas who have taken the short hemlines trend a bit too far (in some cases up past their bellybuttons). Please click here if you want a more detailed explanation, but if you're ready for your daily dose of chocha, read on...

Sophie sent in these two ShopBop offenders under the email subject line, "Major Chocha," which totally made my day:

She says: This is a time when I really, really love the inventor of tights.

And: I feel dirty looking at this. I really do.

Here's one from Claudia:

This is from American Apparel, so it's understandable. But that really doesn't make it any more acceptable.

Swedish reader Anna passed along these pics, as well as the hilarious observation below:
Here's a pic of a Swedish fashion blogger that made me think of your blog and, I think, also reason for a new label: "don't show-cha, nor PLAY WITH, your chocha".

Check out this understandably depressed victim of rapidly rising hemlines:

Says Karina: The look on her face makes me laugh out loud! Poor girl.

Reader Jen actually sent this Urban Outfitters ad to me last winter and I just unearthed it from the vast pile of chocha in my inbox (I love that I write phrases like that!):

Says Jen: They're not even trying to pass these off as dresses and they still want people to wear them with nothing more than transluscent tights. The clenched-together legs, the dead look in the model's face... It's all there, and it's made all the more salient by the pants-wearing model's casual, sprawled-out pose and look of relief.

And again, from good ol' Urban Outfitters:

Says the lovely Gwen: This ad was on the sidebar of the most recent chocha post. Google Ads -- how do they know?!? Also, in Bolivia, where my husband is from, "chocar" is used for running into things or crashes (like a car accident) - which is perhaps precisely what these outfits are going to cause! [Editor's note: That is the best thing I have ever heard.]

And finally, what's that phrase about the chocha being the window to the soul?

Reader Josephine explains: This could not *not* be sent to you, it is a blatant disregard for what clothes are generally designed for: covering one's chocha. This one has a hole designed to see it! I guess the website name - "house of harlot" - should be a give away, but still! Such disrespect for general decency deserves to be scoffed at by the masses ;)

Amen to that.

If I attempt to wear something too short, I will def wear leggings.

Hilarious post. Chocha viewings are definitely not meant for the general public. Definitely not.

The model with the rising hemlines cracks me up. She looks like she's trying to pretend her chocha isn't being compromised.

The woman who is playing with her chocha reminds me of a guy I went out with a few times. Well, let's not get into that here.

...that last one should go in the chocha hall of fame...danngg! *haha!* Put some curtains on that window!

Valerie said...

holy camel toe

Katy said...

I have to say, the UO ones are probably the worst offenders.

Lisa said...

Wow, that last one...just wow. :S

susie_bubble said...

The playing with your chocha shot is quite odd....

Anthea said...

Hahhahaha awesome post. So funny!

JessieB said...

Nice. The American Apparel one is (of course) particularly startling. Say...any plans for Inadvertently Ask Daddy Likey sometime soon? :)

Breezy said...

good lord! that last one... someone needs to close the curtains on that chocha-window!

Ha ha ha! Loved the last one! Girlfriend is rockin' the camel toe.

American Apparel's ads are so funny. We have one here in Memphis and I have never seen a single customer inside in 3 years. Memphians may be ghetto, but we don't dress like bulimic sluts and we also refuse to pay 50 bucks for a freaking t shirt. Their ads are always a good laugh though.

Libby said...

Oh American Apparel... equally funny and disturbing. As per usual.

Lindsay said...

OH M Jizz.. Camel Toe-ij

Newburgh Restoration said...

OMG! My jaw dropped!

Believe it or not, the "warming trend" pic looks a lot like what the kids in Ireland are wearing. I consider myself lucky if the girl's actually wearing a shirt that covers the chocha at all. Usually the tights are just...there. Showing everything.

Kids these days.

Oh my gosh that last one made my jaw drop. Who thinks this is ok? WHAAAA!
