Freak-Shoe-Friday-Peter-Popps-Round-White-CiRCLE-Shoes

Here’s my “Freaky Friday” fashion pick of the week. Scissor handle shoes by designer Peter Popps.

Not sure where I’d wear these? Parent teacher meeting? Blind date? The grocery store? Meh!

I think they’d be good costumes for a movie about the cultivation of cut-throat fashion designers who live in an all white city underneath New York’s 5th Avenue. The evil cult leader stomps around in these ginormous scissor-like shoes slamming patterns and sketches in front of the members and demanding them to produce stylish designs. Some escape the cult through a secret glass elevator that leads to Central Park, but others are brainwashed into conforming and eventually earn scissor shoes of their own. Of course there’s some weird torture involved (like being forced to sleep in cheap, scratchy fabrics), a love triangle, and lots of robots with attitudes.

OK- it could use some developing, but it’s a start. And I’m still half asleep (I stayed up way too late last night watching Netflix), so that’s my excuse. I’m tired! Ha!

Gone Fishing

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic of the week, a fish bowl earring/hat. What possesses a man to wear this?

It must make him happy. I guess if something brings you that much happiness, you do everything in your power to keep it near and dear to you. Or, maybe he didn’t trust his neighbors enough to feed his fish while he went on vacation, so he just took them with him?

Thanks to one of my BFs, Simone, for sending this over. It’s one of three things that keep us bonded- freaks. The other two are fashion and food. We can seriously stay up all night talking about fashion, food and freaks.

I’d like to invite this man to our next girl’s night out. I’m sure he’d stay up all night with us and talk about fashion, food and freaks. Plus, I’d like to know the story behind the cupie doll and Pokemon characters on his hat.

Mr. Fox

Paris-Fashion--mai_1685559a

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic of the week, a fox frock.

It looks like the fantastic Mr. Fox is on his way to super stardom. We’ve seen a lot of fox images recently in the fashion industry, but this design surpasses them all.

My oldest son keeps me in the loop on the latest video crazes and Netflix series. It’s good to have young blood around you, but at times can be rather draining. (Ever since he got me hooked on Breaking Bad, I haven’t had a good night sleep in weeks.)

A few days ago he introduced me to the “What Does the Fox Say?” video on Youtube. Now, I want to do a photo shoot with all of my creative soul mates in the woods, and I can’t stop singing the song.

I’ve attached the video for your viewing pleasure; now you too can be culturally bound to “What Does the Fox Say?”

My Type

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic for the week, a typewriter dress by London designer Mary Katrantzou.

I’ve been searching for something to wear to my next blogger convention that will stand out, and this is perfect! I’m sure I’ll get plenty of press attention and social media comments in this frock. It’s just my type.

What The Shell?

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic of the week, shell headdresses and hair styles. They’re  actually really beautiful in these photos, but it’s definitely not a look for everyone. I’m still trying to think of one person that would wear this “shell-iffic” chic trend.

I came across this amazing custom-built home in New Mexico which is truly a masterpiece. Then it dawned on me, the person who wears this hair style, probably lives in this house. And she probably sells sea shells by the sea shore. And her name is probably Shelly. And I probably better go now.

OK Bye.

Smoky Eyes

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic of the week, cigarette couture.

I don’t even know where to begin with this one. Maybe he thought if he glued some half-smoked cigarettes to his glasses, people wouldn’t be afraid to bum a smoke from him?

Or, maybe he’s trying to start a new trend? The human ashtray trend.

I bet he stinks, there’s no “butts” about it!

Tooth Ache

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic for the week, “Tooth Ache”! These shoes are embellished with actual human teeth by a husband and wife artist team known as Fantich & Young.

The couple is based out of England and use human remains to create wearable art. They also made a suit from human hair (throws up a little in mouth) but are gaining notoriety with their shoes they call “Apex Predator Shoes”.

Fantich &  Young describe their creations as, “Predators with no predators of their own, residing on the top of their food chain.”

I honestly have been seeing a lot of focus on dental-inspired items in the fashion world. As a matter of fact, I brought in some FAKE, gold tooth, rings and earrings to the store (Roadkill Ranch & Boutique) and they were a hit.

Our featured artist in February, Travis Hite, created the exhibit “Modern Indian Death Machine”, where a majority of the focus was on teeth. (That’s him in the above pic.)

And, recently, I was compelled to buy a vintage Ronald McDonald head at a flea market. Not because I like McDonalds, but because he had gold teeth (and a real-looking cigar). I happily brought him home and he sits proudly in my kitchen.

My son: “Mom! He’s smoking!”

Me: “I know! He’s bad for you! And so is his food! So let this be a reminder to all of you children (the neighbor kids were over too) that fast food is unhealthy!”

My son: “OK.”

Neighbor Kids: “Can we go swimming now?”

Keep your eyes peeled for teeth-inspired items and have fun with it. I’m just curious where Fantich & Young got all of their HUMAN supplies? They must know a guy who knows a guy who knows another guy.

Bacon Mania

bacon-kids bacon-shoesde9622c455292c55729c21f4e05d339c803239

Here’s my  “Freaky Friday Fashion” pics for the week, bacon-inspired shoes and clothing. When will this bacon-craze end? Seriously, if I see one more, non-edible, bacon product, I think I’m going to puke. It’s so greasy looking and gross. Plus, I’m on a health kick right now and seeing the inside lining of a pigs stomach plastered on product everywhere, completely turns me off.

I know for some of you, I may be crossing the line by talking smack about the flavorsome sow tissue, but enough is enough! Make it stop! Where’s the trend stopper? Who keeps buying this stuff? (Oops, I better cancel my re-order of bacon-scented air freshener for the store.)

And these poor kids! All dressed up in their bacon suits for family picture day, I bet they have some serious issues when they get older. I can just hear them in therapy, “Our mom used to dress us up like bacon and then take pictures.”

And the shoes! Do your feet smell like bacon if you don’t wear socks with these?

And the dress! “He thinks I’m just a piece of meat!”  Perhaps it’s your poor wardrobe choices.

What will be next? Crotchless underwear? Scratch and Sniff wallpaper? (Hmm… hold on…I might be on to the next big thing.) OK, gotta go now. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Sheepish

Crazy-fashion-ideas21

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic of the week, a baby, lamb, head piece. Wait! Maybe it’s a dog?! At any rate, an animal-faced, forehead cap, with dyed-to-match hair color is so baaaaahhhh-baaaaahhhhd! (Almost as bad as that pun, assuming this is a sheep.)

Maybe she’s trying to show her gentler side, or maybe she’s trying to cover up a big zit? I think I’m going to pass on this trend for now, the last thing I need is a sheep on my head. Or maybe I do? Maybe people will think twice before dumping their self-loathing animosities toward life on me if I’m wearing “Mary’s Little Lamb”.

Getting Hairy

hairy_legs_18s4kvd-18s4l02

 

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic for the week, a pair of hairy tights.

You may have seen this image floating around the media recently. It first showed up on the China Smack web site and since then has gone viral. Apparently, these are real, hairy tights made with the intention to ward off “perverts” so girls can go out and feel safe.

Hmmm….pretty clever approach to an anti-attack method. I’m sure every woman in the world will be sporting these on the streets soon. I know I’d feel safer in a pair (NOT!).

Has it occurred to anyone else, these stockings just might attract some “perverts”?

I’m just sayin’.
