BAHAHAHAHA!

This makes me laugh and laugh and laugh... :lol:

I can just see it now.

All the fundies lining up on Sundays at Goodwill to get first dibs on the 99 cent deals before mainstream ladies beat them to it.

Gasp! They might even have to buy denim and sew their own skirts due to shortage.

Oh, the hilarity of frump and fashion colliding.

:trainwreck:

I would wear that first one - it's funky enough to be cute.

I remember back in the 90s I had a long denim skirt with slits up both sides that I l-o-v-e-d to wear with combat boots. I would totally do that again in a heartbeat.

Oh lord :D I remember when I finished homeschooling and started college--it was 1991 and I was sixteen years old. I was giddy with my new-found independence and went to Foley's (now Macy's) and bought my first Denim Skirt. Until that time, I had lived in frumpers and long-sleeved turtlenecks. Imagine my heady sense of worldliness as I strutted around campus in my form-fitting, ankle-length, slit-up-to-my-knee-in-the-back Liz Claiborne acid-washed skirt. Ahh, good times :D It was the beginning of the end for me. May many young fundie girls find their first taste of apostasy in the racks of clearance denim skirts at their local department store.

I love my denim maxis. Always have one blue and one black in the wardrobe and other of each packed away ready to replace the current ones when they wear out. Don't care about fashion - they are just practical. Very shocked to see the price of the above though. I'll stick to my $80 skirts from China.

Oh, there sounded like there was so much wrong with this that I wouldn't know where to start, but I looked forward to it!

First of all, I was going to point out, Vogue was the rag that said that Kim & Kanye were cover-worthy material. Wrong!

But then I looked and I knew in a Second that none of those skirts is remotely going to be identified as Maxwell – worthy. None of them reaches to the ankle, and one of them points exactly to the business end of the lady parts!

Third, all of those skirts permit easy and free movement of the legs of the woman wearing them. The point of denim skirts for dominionists is to hamper the woman's ease and freedom of movement.

Thank goodness! I can relax. The topic title had me scared to fricking death that I would open it and see true Michelle skirts. Carry on, my wayward daughters! Find the reasonably priced versions of these skirts and wear 'em!

Phew!!!

The first taste of apostasy is always the best, too.

Well MJB, I might have to disagree with you on this one. A significant number of the "fundies" I see showing up at my place of employment that are wearing denim skirts that - well, they have the look of the homemade variety, miles of denim, gathered/dirndl at the waist, and sometimes so long that the hemline is filthy from dragging the ground. But I will agree, nothing in common with the skirts in these pics.

I still wouldn't be caught dead in any one of them. Of course, I am a pants-wearing woman...

And in the spring, there was "news" that culottes were "back in style"... :orly:

Dude, there culottes and then there are culottes! When I was 10, I had some that looked like a skirt with a box pleat down the front and another one in the back.

But SURPRISE! They were culottes so I could jim on a bike, climb on the playground equipment -- anything I wanted, and not have to worry about my underwears showing, in the bargain!

I doubt they make the style anymore, but those things were my version of Clark Kent and the phone booth: I could turn into Active Girl in no time at all -- and then look all "dressy" just by standing still.

Good times. Good times! (circa 1959, btw)

I swear I made myself a skirt just like that first denim patchwork one.

In 1973!

I'm not sure where we disagree… To me, yards of gathered denim, even if they only reached midcalf, still hamper ease of movement. I mean, I'm a pants woman, too, in large part because I never see men confining themselves within yards of fabric. Wouldn't make sense, would it. But yeah, the dragging in the dust – – perfect example. How can a woman run or attend to something that involves actual big muscle movement, while being weighted down by a skirt the drags the ground?

Also, reviewing the original post, I didn't notice it a couple our ankle length. And slim cut. My grandma was born in 1880 and she told my mom (her daughter-in-law) that when she was young one of the sessions was the "Hobbleskirt "– – the thing was cut so tight on the woman that her legs could only hobble from place to place. Walking with the normal stride was simply impossible. Some fashion designers have had it in for us for time immemorial.

OK, I agree :) :) :)

That Yves St. Laurent number has NIKE written all over it. That light colored patch, aimed at the woman's hoo hah? DEFRAUDING! As far as any of those skirts, I wouldn't wear them. I wouldn't even use them for rags..

OK, the Nieman marcus version of turning jeans into a skirt ala my buds in the 70s.... messed it up...the front is close, but the back is all wrong.. it looks like they stuck a tail in the waistband. Should follow the legs of the jeans up to the crotch just as in the front.

:D

If it's ok to wear a denim maxi skirt now, I feel like it's ok for me to bring my knee length denim pencil skirt out of retirement. *whispers* I used to wear it with Dr. Scholl's sandals--in 2002.

I like the irregular-patched one, though I can't ever see myself paying a thousand dollars for any article of clothing! Hell, that's half of what we paid for our last car.

But the one that's just cut-up jeans set sideways is butt ugly and the one with the panel that points directly to the lady parts in front and looks like a bustle in back - just weird.

As long as you wear them with socks--evidently that's the latest fashion.

I was going to say that I didn't think that culottes have ever been exactly in style, but that would depend on your definition of the term "culotte". It referred to men's knee britches (breeches) at first and those were definitely in fashion at the end of the 18th century and then came to refer to women's split skirts in the late 19th century. I had some culottes like Mama Junebug was talking about when I was little and culottes used to be part of the Brownie uniform. The culottes which are ugly, ill fitting Capris have never been in style, as far as I'm concerned. (Just who do these fundie women think they're fooling anyway?) I do have a couple of running skirts/skorts but they do look more like skirts.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
