Who Wore It Better?

It’s no secret I love fashion. I also love laughing at ridiculous fashion.

In a recent fit of insomnia, I spent a good hour perusing the Nordstrom website. It didn’t help my insomnia that I nearly died laughing at some of the things they were selling.

Join me now in a humorous game of Who Wore It Better?! First up, this grey shift dress. Who wore it better: the model, or Wednesday Addams? I dunno about you, but I think the model on the left needs to up her goth game if she wants to give Miss Addams a run for her money.

Next up, who wore it better: The model, or Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas? I think the model needs a few more scars and some even paler makeup to be as cool as Sally.

Who wore it better: The model, or the cover of the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine album? Both are pretty psychedelic.

Who wore it better: The model, or the Joker in the Dark Knight film? I honestly find the models’s outfit so dang creepy because all it’s missing is a cinched belt and the DENT logo.

Finally, who wore it better: The model with an overpriced jumpsuit, or “Relativity” by M. C. Escher? I’m getting dizzy just looking at both!

Now if you’ll all excuse me, I obviously need to do some shopping… 😉

  1. lmao, great finds. Wednesday, Sally, The Beatles, The Joker, and of course Relativity all win. Very amusing for sure.

    I think I’m the most fashion-illiterate person in the world. Perhaps in the top 10 at least. Happily (and not coincidentally), my choices for work only come down to what tie to wear, while I display my diverse khaki shorts and a t-shirt in summer and jeans and a flannel in winter. Pathetic? Maybe. But there’s something to be said for simplicity and not having to go through decision fatigue just trying to figure out an outfit. lol

    • Haha glad you enjoyed it! I laughed so hard when I first so all these foolish (and very expensive) outfits. Your fashion breadth sounds very much like my fiance’s. He owns khakis, jeans, a couple of suits, and a variety of t-shirts lol. I agree there is something to be said for simplicity! Then again I have a weak spot for impractically high heels, but I think a lot of us women do 🙂


  2. Who designed those clothes from Nordstrom?

    The name sounds awesome and I can only think of Nords from the Elder Scrolls creating neat outfits – but not these.

    The characters wore them better. Definitely.
