I Still Like Green.

Location: The Silver Dollar, Madison, WI
Photographer: wb(?), Katie(?)
Offense(s): poor jacket choices, lime green
Comments: I think this is a lime green linen sports coat. It also may be ventless, which isn't a statement this guy should be making either. I love this picture because it's actually a 2-for(!). Look at that droopy suede trench to his left! I wonder if they are friends because of their terrible jackets, or their jackets are terrible because they are friends.

Location: N. Prospect Ave., Milwaukee, WI
Photographer: "Katie." - wb
Offense(s): roller-tights, blades, keylime green
Comments: This rollerbladed by BikeTub Saturday afternoon while we were out cruising the streets of The Kee. I guess if you're going to give up your self-respect by lacing up a pair of inline skates anyway, you might as well go all in and put on a pair of bright green tights too. Even so, I don't think she needed that helmet of 80's permed hair. Rollerblades didn't even exist back then.

Fashion Easters

The East Side of Milwaukee has a lot of things going for it in general. It's eccentric and eclectic! I don't live there, but I know people who do. And sometimes I get recognized at The Dogg Haus, which is pretty fulfilling. Also, they managed to nab that killer url, so that's pretty hip & cool.

Of course there's a downside to eccentric. I'm sure these people are very nice, they just should wear that:
Tie-dye? Really? Why is there still no foreseeable end to the use of large swaths of tie-dyed cotton-poly blends as clothing? Just stop.

This outfit isn't ever ok, even if you are Madam Mim's rebellious step-daughter. And even though crossing Knapp Street looking like this may be sort of meta, it just highlights your need of a good nnacking. I'm sure Nnobi could work some magic.
