A well-endowed I-Banker? But then what would he be compensating for with his BMW?

Girl: ...And he was telling me how cute his new girlfriend is. He was like, "Oh she's so tiny and cute, and her face is so cute I just want to cup it in my hands."
Friend: You should just be like, "Oh yeah, my new investment banker boyfriend... his penis is so big and cute I just want to cup it in my hands."

-- King's University College library, overheard by Sandra

LOL! Yep, jealous, brainless, and Ugg-ly...

while jealousy is totally unattractive, I have to say that most western girls are neither "brainless" nor "ugg-ly".

As a matter of fact, a large number of them are extremely hot, regardless of any fuzzy boots. Western girls rule.

I know they're not ugly (well, some of them). I was referring only to their attraction to the aforementioned fuzzy boots. And yes, they are on average quite dumb, which explains the fuzzy boots.

The Definitive word on Western’s Style Warz:

What's wrong with having your own personal style? This involves finding unique pieces of clothing and accessories on your own, not simply buying People magazine or some other celebrity-trend mag and copying the style in there.

Every week my buddy's gf buys these trashy mags and then goes on a shopping spree to find clothes that look exactly like the stuff in the mag (even to the point of getting the ultimate accessory, a Chihuahua). She watches Sex in the City religiously, and reads crap like the Shopaholics books. The thing is, she's a pretty cool girl who devotes way too much time to her appearance and keeping up with the latest trends, and stepping over puddles in her must-have Uggs.

What I'm saying is that the women who dress EXACTLY the same a) have no confidence in their own beauty and style, b) place themselves willingly in a group (Ugg-wearing Trendoids) that is easily mocked by the rest of society, and c) robs the individual of any originality. This group seems to be saying: "I have no individuality or personality... I am whore for the fashion advertising industry, and find it comforting to blend in with the "in-crowd" because I have no ideas of my own and no confidence to take a minor risk by "sticking out" with my own style. That is where the insults and mockery get their fuel... sheep are not known for their intelligence, but their willingness to follow the group.

It seems that this ultra-trendy "style" derives from TO people moving to London (look at me, I have lots of money... my sweatpants come from Lululemon but I can't wear them on the Stair Climber or they will get dirty and ruined and my Uggs are really expensive but unfunctional as they cannot get wet).

Also, the obsession with Hollywood stars comes into play, as these people copy the styles right out of style and celebrity mags.... Here's a tip: big stars and starlets don't buy their clothes, they get them free, since the company knows that there are a lot of suckers out there who will buy the stuff if a hot star wears the jeans in a mag.

I'm not saying every girl should go out and buy totally functional Doc Martens and a flannel muumuu, but don't be afraid to mix it up a little, and add unique pieces to your wardrobe. This will do much to counter the backlash that the clones receive.

This is university, not high school anymore, so there is no need for the herd-like mentality that is plaguing our campus. You are supposed to be intelligent and open to criticizing the established norms, so try dressing the part. Under all that fake-tan and Tiffany ostentation, there is (or should be) an individual who is eager to show the world how cool they REALLY are.

Same goes with the metrosexual guys out there... try changing a tire or joining in a impromptu game of football wearing ass-tight slacks, Aldo-style shoes and a striped dress shirt... If you need any reason NOT to dress kinda like a girl, then check out:

Since this seems to be a board to bash fashioin trends, here goes. Artificially worn out jeans. Especially on the people who threw out their old jeans because they weren't worn out in the factory made pattern. Part of the fun of getting jeans are breaking them in and wearing them out so that they develop their own character. Its like that Levis commerical where the guy goes through all the trouble wrecking a new pair of jeans and giving them to his girlfriend so he wouldn't have to part with his own.
Too bad its damn near impossible to find a pair of jeans that look new, especially in a 36 length.

i know what you mean, i have these awesome jeans that are really worn in that i've had for years, but now when i wear them people think i bought them that way and give me odd, judgmental looks lol. but i actually wore them in myself! gah

I know exactly what you mean... i have only pair of jeans that i wear because i refuse to buy fake-ass jeans with stupid designs on them or fake rips and holes... There is nothing more unfashionable than psuedo-retro clothing (trucker hats, skin-tite tshirts with stains or with witty sayings like the Campus crew shirt advertising all you can eat fish- if i had a daughter, i'd kick her slut-ass if she tried to wear a shirt like that, faggy puma shoes that provide no foot support and hurt like hell if you try to walk in them.

i checked every store in the eaton centre and london for wearable jeans and no luck. American Eagle is the biggest rip-off going, selling wannabe wornout jeans that are all wrinkled up so u look like u slept in the goddamn things. I won't wear baggy jeans and the ones i bought from Gap at Xmas are too fucking short and ass-tite that i can't wear the them in public (they also pinch the balls majorly, and rip the hell out of my underwear legs). I didn't try them on because the fucking line was so long so i got my size (32-30) and they look like i'm going to walk across the fucking river... also my favourite Roots jeans, the only pair that is actually wearable, decided to rip in the crotch so i have to wear blue underwear and cannot bend over to pick up my keys if i drop them since people can see the big hole there.

Now you try to buy the exact same pair at the store and its like all they have are these quasi-gay-disco-carpenter-oversize shit-ass pantaloons now, that would probably look ideal if you complemented your look with a puffy shirt for christ's sake. The Hilfigers i bought look like shit, since Tommy couldn't design a comfortable and actually cool pair of jeans if a Thai wage-slave's life depended on it.

Is there a competent sewer out there who could possibly repair the only pair of jeans that I have? I'm totally serious. All you have to do is sew up the crotch or maybe apply a patch or two to help me out here. Girls from Brescia in the Sewing Program??? The rips come from wearing them, not from any noxious substances.

12:44, try Jean Machine! It's slightly pricey but they have AWESOME jeans, at least for girls, and i haven't seen many of the pseudo-worn-out ones there. Giver'er a try.

you're all so bitter.

arguing about fashion choices is pointless. do you want everyone to start dressing alike?
you "make fun" of all those who choose to follow some of the fashion trends.. possibly because you can't afford to follow them?
people complain about UGGS through their asses on here.
it's ridiculous.
i think 2year old white nike running shoes are far more of a fashion crime then UGGS - but then again, that's totally subjective. IT's MY opinion. if you own white nike running shoes, Hell, wear them! i don't really give a flying fuck. but seriously, people need to chillout and realize that what they're complaining about are materialistic items("slutty white western girls." - oh, CLASSY). don't you realize that what you're saying is totally stereotypical, judgemental, and materialistic?
quite a contradiction this website has going on...

i don't mean to bring this thread down, but think about the point you're making before you make it.

everyone has their own opinions. if you want to talk about it, go ahead. but you look like a complete idiot.

even as i scroll back and look at my white nike runners diss, i have to laugh at my self.

what was the point in that?

it's ridiculous.

but at least i can see that. the rest of you come across as believing there is only ONE way to view fashion - your way.

what would fashion be like if there were no differences?....

Anonymous Anonymous said...

How can you argue for differences in fashion and Uggs at the same time. The point that you seem to be missing is that people who are wearing uggs aren't necessarily doing to it to follow their own opinions of style, but the opinions of the masses here at Western.

You should perhaps take your own advice and "think about the point you're making before you make it."

10:36 is right. By being trendy you are clearly not doing your own thing and being different. You are following the trend.

There's something you're missing:

It is totally possible for a person to 1) dress how they want and 2) dress in a "trendy" way at the same time....if they happen to personally like the trend.
I'm not saying that there aren't a lot of mindless trend-followers out there....but there are at least some who actually like, for example, distressed jeans.

By the way, there are also people who dress "differently" who are just as mindless as the "trendy" types....Hippies can be as homogenous as ugg girls.

People who dress overly trendy spend way too much money keeping up with the trends. At Western, you don't even have to look in magazines. Every year, over 50% of the girls on any one day are wearing the latest trend - shoes, coats, sweaters, whatever. It makes me miss high school, when we had rockers and goths and those gansta wannabees with the baggy pants... at least there was variety. Now it like driving n Saskatchewan.

Northern or southern Saskatchewan?

I used to always dress down my nice skirts with a polo shirt, and a couple of years ago, that became very fashionable. I was wearing what I wanted, and I was also trendy.

I disagree that Western girls all wear the latest trends. They stick to the same boring fashion. There's enough designers and different fashion scenes out there that everyone can look more individual than at Western.
