Summer Fashion That Made Me Go "WHAT?!?"

Alright you guys.  As you have probably guessed by now, I do a lot of shopping.  I mean, a LOT.  I also love clothes more than is probably healthy (and I work in clothing store…that’s like someone with a gambling addiction working in a casino…just not smart).  HOWEVER, there are two things I’ve run across recently that I find ridiculous. 
The first I think is not only ridiculous, but kind of infuriating.  Let me just show you the atrocity in question:




No no, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, those are socks made to wear with flip flops.  Let me repeat that.  SOCKS MADE TO WEAR WITH FLIP FLOPS.  Who thought this was a good idea?  These actually make me a little unnecessarily mad, I realize that, they fill me with the same rage as Heelys.  And really, that is one of the cardinal rules of dress isn’t it?  Don’t wear socks with sandals?  I think if I see anyone actually wearing these, I will point and laugh very loudly at their feet, and make a very snarky comment that they are sure to hear.  Yes, I realize that’s a very a-hole thing to do, but at least I’m an a-hole that isn’t wearing socks with FLIP FLOPS. 

My next issue with summer fashion is this:


That, my friends, is an adult onesie.  Not to be confused with footie pajamas, which are AMAZING (and made for the privacy of one’s home, for you know, sleeping).  I literally saw a dozen different variations of these adult onesies in one store.  Some were even strapless.  And yes, for some people, I’m sure these look adorable, but those people make up like 2% of the population.  For the rest of us, the onesie should be left behind at age 3.  I just don’t feel like it’s terribly flattering.  I am also well aware that if I were to try one on, I would look very much like Tweedle Dee.

That’s all the rant I have in me today, promise lol.  Is there any particular clothing item you’ve seen lately that made you do a double take?  Do tell!
