It's Always Fun Going Out in Missouri:

Because sometimes, you get to see this:


In the woman's defense, there were some St. Patrick's Day festivities downtown last night. Which means that some unusual green is OK.

But there's no excuse for a fugly green fur vest and green purse with green feathers on the top. Matchy-matchy green feathers. And yes, it was her purse, she wasn't just stealing from it.

And this was in NO WAY the fashion attrocity of the night. I got to watch this hot little number:


Honey, I don't care that your fanny pack cost $600. It's 2006, not 1986, and you're scaring me.

She was actively trying to crawl across the bar to get to the bar tender to get a drink. And I didn't think she was drunk. We were in Mosaic, a classy place - a place that had amazing food like this:


And yes, there was amazing fun, hysterical conversation, and fun presents. But really, you want to see me make fun of people I see on the street, right?

Oh NO. I did NOT just see a Gucci FANNY PACK.

For that, you should've shown her face and her SSN, too.

Airhead said...

Oh my . . . I didn't know high-end designers MADE fanny packs.

I think I still have one from the early 90s that I can rock if they're coming back in style though . . .

Hey! Got here via a comment on D-listed. Love your blog. I was more than a little freaked that we were both named Marcia, and we both like pink and shoes, and write haiku, but then I saw that you pronounce it "Mar-see-ah" and I pronounce it "Marsha", so I could breathe more freely without believing that we're total doppelgangers. ;)

The food looks delicious!

The vest, on the other hand, does not. There's a difference between "unusual green," as you so diplomatically put it, and "unnecessary green." This, assuredly, was the latter.

OMG I hate the feather purses with a blinding fury. Down here in the A, all these 40 something frosty haired housewives pretentiously tote them around like we're supposed to believe they came from some shi-shi boutique and not a craft party.

Busy Mom said...

Holy Moly! I had to look away!

e-liz said...

Hehehe. Oh the fannypack. Too much, too much. At least the food was wonderful and the company was awesome.

anne said...

Eeew...bad outfit!

But man, the food looks great!!

Liz said...

I don't care how much one pays for it, what label it is, or how good SOMEONE thinks it looks, a fanny pack is a fanny pack, and unless you are a 45 year old chainsmoking soccer mom running around with your new stepchildren at the state fair, there is no way this is acceptable.

a gucci fanny pack is pretty bad but if i had a digital camera i woul dhave a seperate blog dedicated to fashion disasters! you girl have NO idea how bad it gets in this town...!!!

goirishkj said...

Amen to the earlier comments about high price tags not equaling good decisions. Alas, this post most definitely summed up life in Missouri...and it gets even worse as you venture towards the middle of the state. STL is at least *somewhat* cosmopolitan compared to Boone County!

The Bill's Special said...

Best post in a while. Left out the information that fanny pack chick was pretty hot, btw.

Virenda said...

It's all about you making fun of people.

DON'T LIKE THE GREEN and considering green is a great color, it's amazing how fugly she made it.

Um, girl needs to STOP thinking she's cute just cause it's name brand. Fanny pack is a NO NO. I can't believe I'm even typing that in 2006.

STOP trying to bring stuff back people, some stuff just needs to stay gone.

Oh and the food is PRETTY. Did it taste as good too?

doggerelblogger said...

Was that a Gucci lumbar pad? Filled with ice, for the stylish easing of lower back pain?

Summer said...

At least you are in the fashion Mecca of MO. I am stuck in 'Bedazzle the Bitches' backwoods.

We need to petition Gucci to stop with that. Very bad, indeed!

I'm majorly confused by the fanny pack. The rear view is very nice, but a fanny pack?! Talk about deflation.

did she buy that special for the holiday? i hope so!
