Geriatric Fashion Disasters

















Despite what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations do not go together:

A nose ring and bifocals

Spiked hair and bald spots

A pierced tongue and dentures

Miniskirts and support hose

Ankle bracelets and corn pads

Speedos and cellulite

A belly button ring and a gallbladder surgery scar

Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor

Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge

Bikinis and liver spots

Short shorts and varicose veins

In-line skates and a walker

I must disagree: a tongue piercing may be the attachment to keep the dentures from falling out.

As for the open disco shirt and heart monitor, it's nuthin' more than stayin' alive, stayin' alive...

*ducking boos and throwd items*

But I would think the tongue stud might be a surefire way to crack a tooth in the denture.

Stayin' alive, stayin' alive...
:D

LOL @ in-line skates and a walker!

The fashion faux pas I see all the time especially amoung the elderly:

Black or dark socks with shorts and sandals

Plaid shorts and Hawaiian shirts


It doesn't look good to me, but is this considered okay?

High heels and low rider pants


Seen today: (and it was very cold today)

Arghhh! The sight of socks (especially knee socks) with sandals and shorts makes me crazy. Why would anybody do that????? As for the low-riders and heels, apparently anything goes these days. I see guys in shorts and boots/gloves/hoodies, too, and always wonder what the heck they're thinking.:)

LOL!! Miniskirts and support hose...I can't picture it.

I can picture worn out hose knee socks puddled around the ankles, though. Trying to add that image with a miniskirt...nope, doesn't cut it.

Not a pretty picture, huh? LOL.:)
