If I Think It's Tacky, Lord, It Is!

At the risk of startling my longtime friends, I have a confession: I am totally obsessed with Project Runway. Now, for those of you just coming to know me through this blog, perhaps you wonder why those who know me well would be surprised by that.
Well, let me tell you. I am a fashion nightmare. I always have been, even in my wild lady-about-town days when I was mixing it up with tall, dark and handsome men, as well as their short, pale and homely friends. I know a few of you are shaking your heads in a enthusiastic nod of agreement as you read this. I could take any two or three articles of clothing, completely acceptable on their own, and merge them together into a cocktail of chaos and clutter. I would try to give reason to my wardrobe, God knows I tried, but the end result was always the same pitiful mess. It's just like some women cannot find their way around a kitchen, in spite of a ton of labor toward it. I'm hopeless. Two words come to mind: faux and pas.
So, regardless of my utter lack of fashion awareness, I simply cannot miss an episode of Project Runway. Each week the DVR records it, but I wait until the boys are fast asleep, even the big one, before I will watch it. For Heidi, Tim and the pool of competing designers, I want to direct my undivided attention. Finally, this week, midway into the season, the judges have finally done what they should have on the first week; they have sent Stella home.
Again, I'm not claiming to harbor any trendy expertise, for I do not. However, when Stella strolled one outfit down the runway that I would've thrown together and then several more that I would've just passed over in the discount bend at the local leather S&M fetish boutique, even I knew this lady has no future in fashion outside of preparing for motorcycle drag show. Seriously, outside of the biker in The Village People, who wears that much leath-ah (spelled leather outside of Stella's New York apartment.)?
I'm still a little heartbroken that the judges sent my main gay Keith home last week. I found the send off especially unfounded in sight of Stella's remaining grace on the show.
So, from the absolutely least qualified person to say so, thank God Stella was auf'd.

Mollie who has better taste than Shonda. said...

I can't believe people actually watch that shit. Rock of Love is so much classier than a fashion show.

You should be ashamed of yourself. Are you blushing now? Are you??

Mollie knows more than Anybody said...

I think I have decided to be your blog troll, going from post to post and leaving comments that are both controversial and impossible to agree with.

AMERICA NEEDS MORE ABORTIONS.

Shonda Little said...

Keep up the good work, Mollie. You are my troll, my favorite little troll.

Misty said...

Mollie cracks me up! Maybe I should search through your blog now to read the controversial comments she leaves because we all know I have already read every single blog you've written.

I used to watch this...and that show w Clinton and Stacy (Stacy is a bitch). Now, I hardly watch TV. SpongeBob dominates my TV when it's on. Or the stoopid boyfriend/fiancee has it on some sports crap.

Lifetime TV rocks. All the women get killed or threatened by their exes. Or they become Superheroes and kill the exes or the boyfriend/fiancee. Can you tell I'm in a foul mood tonight??

i don't watch much t.v., but project runway is def one of my guilty pleasures. with that being said, this season is just not doing it for me (even though i've been watching it). nothing can compare to last season with my fave christian siriano. i liked him from day one. probably cuz he reminded me a bit of my 21 yr old, except my son's not gay LOL but also because he is amazingly talented and fast in his craft.

stella was a biotch. she needed to go. now that kato sp?? girl has been doing some great work.

ha ha @ mollie...i'm so over that ROL crap. bret michaels has pissed me off! LOL

I watched Project Runway for the first time the other night when I was sitting up doing some work. They were doing costumes for drag queens. I knew then and there that I was disappointed that I'd not watched this show forever!

Joy said...

Mollie, I can think of some retroactive abortions I'd approve of. LOL

anna said...

I love Project Runway, too! I'm not much of a fashion plate, but I love seeing what they come up with.

Shonda Little said...

@different girl, I know, right. And the giant drag queen who introduced the project was on PR last season. I really loved Chris.

@joy, don't encourage Mollie. Just don't do it.
