Monday Teeny Poll

By Glinda


Last week I tried to gauge your mood about the inauguration of our new President and almost seventy percent of you were excited, while fifteen percent felt less than thrilled. Then there was the jaded seventeen percent who felt it was business as usual. I was quite excited, and I have hope tempered with what I think are realistic expectations.

This week, I want to know what you would think if the people from this show suddenly appeared at your job or home, wanting to give you a new wardrobe.

    My mom loves that show. I hate it. I don’t think they give good fashion advice AT ALL, or model good fashion decisions. I tend to wear all black, because that’s how I feel the most comfortable. I know they would try to throw color on me, and I would not be pleased. So no, they can take their credit card and go away.

    My family, I would kill.

    These two I can live with. They’re smart, and funny, and they can take a pushback as long as it’s witty and you make it work.

    The Brits, however, put everyone into something Cher got over in 1974 and call it beautiful. Have you SEEN what those two wear? And Susanna used to work for proper designers, too! She’s got no excuse.

    Okay, I’d have a beef if the haircutting guy gave me a bob, and I do think that Stacy and Clinton sometimes try to pass off ridiculous outfits as “casual wear,” demonstrating that they have never actually been to a child’s basketball game–no one wears linen walking shorts with strappy sandals, a sensible jacket, and jewelry. Unless they want to be mocked.

    Having said all that, though, I’d be happy to take the money and go shopping, even if it meant they threw out my flip flops. There are always more where those came from.

    @dgm- OMG! Does that mean everybody at the basketball games is talking about me behind my back?


    So, so kidding.

    There is not one thing in my wardrobe to which I’m unreasonably attached, and most of it is cheap shit anyway, so I’d be tickled pink at the idea of getting to scrap it all and buy new stuff. And hair grows back, so bad haircuts don’t frighten me. I probably wouldn’t make for good television, though, ’cause I wouldn’t fight them on anything! ­čÖé

  6. raincoaster Says:

    I would try to get them out of wearing all black all the time. Stacy, honey, EVERYBODY looks fat next to Kate Moss, lose the black pantsuits; you’re not an undertaker moonlighting as a Hilary Clinton staffer.

  7. Bellamama Says:

    I’d just be embarrassed! To be told so publicly that you don’t have enough intelligence to dress yourself tastefully would be excruciating! And they really rub your nose in it too! What a nightmare!
    Otherwise, I think I’d love it. A whole new (and free) wardrobe, fun make-over, and a week’s shopping in New York…yeah I think I could handle that.
    On a side note, though I of think the pair of them can be a little too hurtful sometimes, I have to say they can also be really sweet about some things. I like the way they tell an overweight woman “dress for who you are now and enjoy the body you have.” Good message.

  8. mini_pixie Says:

    I definitely wouldn’t mind going with them ­čÖé I like to think I dress fairly well, but who would sneeze at getting all new and correctly sized clothes for free?

    The real problem I have with the show is that they don’t seem to have any consideration for women who change size a lot. It’s all very well and good to say “dress the body you have, not the one you want” and that’s what I try to do, but having had 2 kids in 4 years and lost about 50 lbs besides that, I have a wardrobe that ranges from size 10 to size 16. I can’t afford to replace it all so I wind up wearing the same few things that fit until I can’t stand it and then wearing a few that are too big or too small (since i’m currently about a 14).

  9. Joan H. Says:

    I learned a lot from Stacy and Clinton: clothes that fit are slimming no matter what size you are, trouser jeans are great (really!), pay attention to the rise on pants, different necklines really do make a difference… there’s more but you get the idea.

    I think they’re way less harsh than Trinny & Susannah, and usually put people in clothes that make sense. Yes, their idea of casual is a lot less relaxed than most peoples’, but so what? I always feel better when I’m wearing a nice outfit.
