That WS fashion feature thing: The legs have it

legs.jpgTo recap, a couple WSB readers suggested a West Seattle fashion feature a la Pike/Pine; we asked the folks at Clementine — with whom we have corresponded on matters from Junction beautification to the Art Walk, to help us kick it off. It’s wide open to any and all contributors, from West Seattle’s other fine fashion retailers, to any other reader out there who snaps a cool look (either gender) somewhere in WS; our inbox is a-waiting. We all gotta get some relief from death, destruction, business battles, etc., now ‘n’ then. Meantime, at right we have a second contribution, this one sent along by Clementine’s Kelly Rae Cunningham, a dryly humorous artist who titled her note “if WS wasn’t ready for [the first fashion photo] they won’t be ready for this look.”

    I love it, but I’d never wear it. (Mainly because I’d fall right off those heels…)

    I liked the last pair of shoes better, but I’m a dude.

    Hi, “Flashdance” called, they want their look back.

    I think 1985 was ready for that look.

    Like, totally! I’m going to cut all the necks out of my sweatshirts, too. Although, I must say the pictured leg warmers are much cuter than those in my high school days.

    Somewhere in Wyoming there is a rave that is missing some leg warmers.

    Oooh. I, for one, love the colors and contrast of the stockings and leggings. Lovely.

    it would be better if i could see farther up.

    Actually, you’re looking at your own level down there, Donald. There’s something wrong with a man when he’s interested in what a mannequin has going on.

  • flipjack October 5, 2007 (10:19 am)

    no no, leave ’em on baby.

  • donald October 5, 2007 (10:50 am)

    oh i didnt realize it was a mannequin because i can’t see farther up.

    Donald: Don’t sweat the puritanical police. I was thinking the same thing. Damn those mannequins. They’re more anatomically correct than I am.

  • donald October 5, 2007 (11:24 am)

    time to head down to the Short Stop I’m afraid…

  • add October 5, 2007 (12:10 pm)

    LOL on these comments!!

  • praying man-tis i October 5, 2007 (1:29 pm)

    Puritanical, huh? Do tell. What exactly do you know about me, Aidan? :-) Would it kill you to know that I’m actually a sick West Seattlelite with a sense of humor? I suppose since you’ve already judged me. I’ll have to move to Broadway where I’ll be accepted for who I am.

    Speaking of mannequins…Check out ‘Lars and the Real Girl’ when it comes out in theaters. It’s hilarious and stars a mannequin. :) I loved it!

Sorry, comment time is over.
