Observations and rhinestones...

I saw something on the subway last night that made me want to run to my blog!

It wasn't the first time I saw it, but it was just the wrong thing at the wrong time at the wrong moment.

Ladies, ladies, ladies...
If you are a mature and grown woman, please do not come out in public with words like:


embroidered in rhinestones and glitter on the seat of your pants!!!!

It looks like a sizzlin'-hot-ghetto-mess when you do. I just want to tell you what your friends and family are too scared to say.

Let's have just a tiny bit of decorum here, can we?

Just for the record, there is not a TRUE Diva in the free world that would be caught dead with the word "DIVA" sewn to her ass in bright red sequins!!! So, please find it in your heart to believe that if you are a real hottie, cutie, sexy sugar or diva - WE WILL SEE IT IN HOW YOU CARRY YOURSELF and not in the billboard you have turned your backside into!

I wanted to make a statement against those pants by wearing a pair that said "BUTT" or "ASS" on the back.

I never got what was appealing about having words scrawled across the butt...especially if someone has a flat and/or saggy one.

I do agree that a true diva personality shows in how one carries herself, not in what is written on her behind.

LOL - That just made my day!!!


Yeah, I really hate those pants! And moreso, I hate to see little girls wearing them. I think the hole idea of little girls putting words across their backsides is just sad and shameful. Parents should be smacked.

Thanks for comment and the laugh...

I also hate to see little girls with pants on with crap like that on their butts. Where do you think pervs eyes are drawn? *sigh*

I'm with you on this.

It is pathetic, It is embarrassing, it is a damned shame.

I agree with you TTBM , I have seen my few share of old fat fossils running around with a BUTT add like those when I am on the streets!

So can we also get rid of the 14 year-old boys who wear pants down to their knees walking like they just dumped a wicked load in 'em? If I see one more 14 year-old boy with the crotch of his pants down to his knees walking while he's hiking up his pants I just might have a middle-ages woman melt down.

If you're going to get on girls for bein' all 'ho' please get on boys for bein' all 'gansta'. Personally, I think it looks stupid as all shit. And that baseball cap askew thing? Fucking stupid.

Mix the really-big-pants-with-the-crotch-to-the-knees and the askew baseball cap all together and you've got a walking billboard for "I'm the stupidest dumbass on the face of the earth" campaign.

Hey Elizabeth-

Stop reading my mind, please!!!

I was driving along with my oldest child the other day, he's in pre-K, and some knucklehead crossed in front of us and this asshat had his pants pulled down under his ass.

My son said, "Daddy, his underwear are showing. He should pull his pants up." I actually pulled over and told him, "Son, as you grow up you are going to see a lot of boys wearing their pants hanging off their butts like him. I want you to know that that is ignorant, okay?" He nodded. I said, "Boys like him are stupid. And they don't want to look like they have any sense." He nodded again, I finished by saying, "I never want to see you dressed like that okay?" He nodded again.

I agree with you 100%
