Don't Show-cha Your Chocha!

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:

She says (and I agree): Frankly, this leaves me a little uncomfortable.

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:

Also, this terrifying observation: AND she's riding a bike!!!

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!

And this one? Wow, don't shift to the left there, lady.

Odette asks: 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?

And I say, yes, Odette, it definitely counts.

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.

Incidentally, "chic-chocha" is my new favorite phrase.

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:

Wow. That is just a shirt with a belt. Yep, just a shirt.

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!

Ahhh Momsen, she makes me weep.

Also did anyone notice the music video misspells "than"? Whoops!

Far be it from me to defend Kate Moss' fashion sense, but it seems obvious to me that she's wearing a swimsuit coverup in this picture. (Boat background, bare feet, straw bag).

Rosie Unknown said...


The irony of wearing it with some of my skirts would be too great.

Rhandi said...

Is it just me, or was the first lyric in that Choca-riffic music video was "You've got a chocha soul"?

Unknown said...

You crack me up like always!

Ok so seriously, I want that t-shirt design!!! Are we allowed to use that and print it out?? I'm completely serious about this too haha.

WendyB said...

I'm going to start a "hem pad" business.

Rachel said...

omg I want that shirt so bad, think it's long enough to wear as a dress?

Londyn said...

OMG! I love this post - so hilarious and so true!!! What's up with the almost peep show lately?!?!

J said...

But ladies! Once you've show-cha-ed your chocha you won't look back! My best dresses are all chocha skimmers! :-)

etc said...

haha thanks for posting it :)
feel free to make a tshirt out of it :)

alyssarz said...

looks to me like taylor momsen has denim cutoffs on under her "dress" and it's a ragged denim hem sticking out.
