I was just flipping through a brochure that came in the mail and I see the gladiator sandal is meant to be popular this summer. They're an ugly thing really. And making them gold doesn't really convince me that they are a classy option.

We had to wear sandals that looked like that when I went to school. We called them JC's. What did that mean anway? Was that supposed to be a reference to jesus christ, because I can imagine him wearing something like them.



And these sculpt and shape things annoy me. Who wants to wear one of them in summer. There'll be some nasty cases of thrush going around. And anyway why don't they ever show someone modelling them who might actually feel they need to wear them. Those chicks do not need to wear those things. What I want to see is a larger lady modelling them, because I've always wondered what happens to all that flesh you push down. I mean it has to escape somewhere. I imagine you end up with a roll at the top or at the bottom.

The one at the bottom for instance – by the time you put a bra on you'll have a big roll between it and the top of that thing. Although she doesn't appear to have breasts. Where the hell are they, how much longer can her body possibly be?

Lol at the top left one. How do you even walk in that? You'd have to take little geisha steps. And I bet, I bet as soon as you sit down it would roll up. Anyone who owns one of these things – please burn it.

    The corset returns. And it's not even pretty.
    I so agree with you about the choice of models. How pointless to spotlight a figure-forming garment on someone whose figure is beautifiully formed already, thank-you-very-much?

  2. cat Says:

    It's like those swimming costume features they have every summer in magazines about which style suits which figure, big bust, big hips etc, yet all the models are the same slim style.

    Because we wouldn't buy anything that we saw modelled on a person overflowing with fat because we all want to buy into the illusion that the product will make us look "better". Even the larger girl catalogues have models of size 14-16 which is not really "fat". LOL – I thought the JC stood for Jesus Christ – doesn't it?

  4. cat Says:

    Maybe JC's were only around in hot dusty parts of NSW. Can't imagine you'd ever be able to wear them now with all the safety regulations. And I don't want to see someone overflowing with fat – just a 14 or 16.

    JC for Jesus Christ, my first guess. If I must wear shoes, and evidently I must, zoies or sandles are my first choice but these, these I just wouldn't wear 'cause they just look sucky. Very rarely seen them look good on anyone and when they do, it's like with ooooone specific dress. Those spandex suck-ins are all the range amongst Hollywood women, particularly the new moms.

  6. cat Says:

    I don't know what zoies are. I can't wear any sort of sandal because my feet are too skinny (unless I have my sister send them from USA) – so those ugly things would be sliding all over me. And they look like your little toe would get stuck between the strap bits.
    I hate to think of my post baby stomach flattened into one of those things! lol at the thought, it would be like a flattened flap type thing. Sorry for the visual.

  7. Waterbaby Says:

    lol, i'll try not to puke at that visual, humorous though it be. zories are flip-flops. i thought it was a commonly-understood word but evidently i'm wrong, only my sister and i and one of my blog neighbors knows it. anywho, one of the actresses who raved about this modern lightweight corset was gwen. paltrow. it's kinda comforting knowing that probably at least half the actresses walking the red carpet don't really look as stunning as they appear when the clothes are off …

    I just saw today on the Today show that the gladiator shoes are in for the fall here too. Whats her name was calling them Mel Gibsons. Not only would your toes get trap between the straps, you'd have to start half hour early to do up the buckles. I got it, how about velcro gladiator shoes?The reason they use those stick skinny models for that stuff is to make you think that is what you are going to look like when you wear it. My daughter wears them, actually wore them all summer. Good for her, I wouldn't be happy in that. Whats next? corsets?

  9. cat Says:

    lol – why the mel gibsons? I thought it'd be more like the russell crowes. Velcro, now that'd be classy.

  10. Karen Lynn Says:

    maybe it was russell crows…you know my memory…i was thinking velcro too. lolololol riiiippppppp

  11. cat Says:

    ha ha, yes you know how velcro starts curling on the ends after a while, you'd end up with your ankles stuck together.

  12. Karen Lynn Says:

    lololol you are way too funny! i laughed out loud and the dogs got startled!

  13. Jaffnut Says:

    I think the Gladiator shoes look a bit trashy and there's no way I'd wear them. Let's see how many slaves to fashion we can spot this Summer – it might be time for a bit of candid photography!

  14. cat Says:

    yes please I'm always up for a laugh
