I had a meeting this morning. Was told, "business casual attire". Fine. I can do business casual. Or... can I? Apparently I live in a city devoid of fashion sense.
Movoto.com basically says we suck at fashion, but at least we're not as bad as Wichita, KS. We came in at SECOND Worst Dressed Big City in America. What?
First of all, who the heck is Movoto? (That's rhetorical, please don't answer). I read some of the *hate* comments that followed their well researched article.
"Who cares if Columbia shorts and Tevas aren’t “high fashion”? They’re far more appropriate for the CO lifestyle than a pair of Jimmy Chu’s or a handbag that cost as much as my bike!"
Admittedly, I have no idea what a pair of Jimmy Chu's are. And a handbag the price of my bicycle? What, are you crazy?!? I put my "purse" on the counters of public restrooms, but my bicycles? No way, those bathrooms are filthy!!
"Colorado Springs has one of the lowest obesity rates in the country. We enjoy the outdoors here and you can’t do that well in heels and tight clothing"
Again, maybe the article is onto something. I don't even do high heels INdoors.
"As a world traveler and resident of city #2 on this list, I can attest to the lack of fashion, and self-awareness, of my fellow residents. We’re about 3 years behind either coast and about 10 years behind fashion centers in EU and Russia. I have to say, though, we can’t possibly be worse than Albuquerque… In anything really."
I dunno. Albuquerque's got all that cool nuclear stuff... But, what is "self awareness"? Wait, who's typing?
"What a lame story. You’re giving the internet a bad name"
I thought that's what Kardashian gossip was for.
"Wow….getting schooled from a west coast kid that writes about video games. I would trade fashion for hard work, clean living, ethics, and a moral compass any day"
Okay, that wasn't my comment. Really.
"Well, here in Wichita we are pretty excited that we are being called a “BIG CITY.” LOL! "
Ha, I like that commentor. Wonder if he'd come over for Thanksgiving.
