The skirt itself is nice, but not with that sweater, tights, or awful shoes.  This would have been adorable with black opaque tights, high, thin heeled and feminine black shoes (something like this), and an ivory fitted, cap-sleeved angora or cashmere crewneck or balletneck tee (tucked in) with a long string of pearls tied with a black bow.  That burgundy sweater is just too heavy and drab for the skirt (it looks like something you would layer under, not wear by itself), the dark tights are alright but are dragged down by the elementary-school style of the shoes.  Also, burgundy on top and bottom isn't very imaginative.

I agree with all of this.  And she does the match the tights with the shirt thing way too often.  I know it's tempting, but you really don't have to do that!  Just pick another complimentary color, or if you're wearing a print, pull a color from the print.

Her tattoo is recent?? Like, in the last few years? I thought it was a relic from the late 90s, which makes it less sad/more understandable. 

OMG, noooo kidding.  That is just depressing.

I'm finding it hard to snark on Sal these days. She's still screwing up, but she makes the same types of screw ups again and again. They're as predictable as her content. I wish she'd try another "shopping ban." That was a fun trainwreck to watch.

Part of it may also be that I've never hated her or truly wanted her to GOMI, I just liked to look at her outfit fails. But even those are becoming repetitive. 

I can't even come up with a comment for the "body image warrior week" other than to say I definitely rolled my eyes when I first saw it. Am I losing my touch?

It's one thing to have a neck tattoo (lots of 30-somethings have them *cough*), but it's another to act like you still think it's cool.

It's not. 

Also, I love tattoos (my catman has tons, and I think they are hot on a lot of people) – but Sally's are fucking ugly.  I'm sorry.  I know it's judgmental to have an opinion on something as personal as tattoos, but Sally's look like they were purchased from a bubblegum machine.  To me, they are just the epitome of trying-so-hard-to-be-edgy-but-really-just-dorky.  Basically Sal in a nutshell, really.

They are really awkward looking tattoos. Even the positioning of them looks wrong and awkward to me.

A page or so back from that post, she has a post about "good fancy" and "bad fancy"
THIS IS BAD FANCY, SAL : ( 

I'm so glad we're talking about Sal again! The outfit is definitely bad fancy and the skirt pull doesn't help the cause.

The burgundy sweater is from the thrift store, and dear god, it needs to go back there. Those little tucks around the neckline!!! Not an enhancing color on her!!!

I think Sal would be better served with one flattering piece of clothing for every 25 pieces of thrift-store flotsam currently in her wardrobe. She doesn't need a shopping ban; she needs to edit.

it just looks weird. like you're wearing a bodysuit or something. I think the only colours you can get away with – actually, no, the only COLOUR you can get away with that with is black. in very limited circumstances.

definitely not burgundy under pink. she looks like someone tried to ombre-shade her and messed up where the lightest bit went.

I'd love to see her do a series on that. But that would require admitting she actually has a problem, and we know from her previous "shopping ban" that even if she kind-of-sort-of-maybe admits she has a problem she'll have an equal number of excuses to justify what she really wants.

Wait, that would be perfect. She should do a series on editing her closet where she makes irrational decisions about why she should keep certain items (keeping my burgundy sweater! fulfills: burgundy sweater) and then uses the few items she does get rid of as justification to buy more crap. It would be glorious.

Also, still wishing for a closet tour. And when will she finally run out of Sunday shoes?

But my excitement is short lived because none of these things will ever happen.

She needs to learn that just because it's from a thrift store, it doesn't mean it's cute vintage attire.

I can't believe that's a crown.  At first glance, I thought it was a messed up Canadian maple leaf based on the above picture.  I saw more pics in the "about my tattoos" section of her website and thought it was somehow based on a Chinese throwing star.

I can't believe I'd never read her "about my tats" page until now. COMEDY GOLD! She needs to do a post about determining what your totem animal is. 

 

Sad that her leg tattoo is the "fixed" version. Lasers are your friend, Sal!

That red crown tattoo does look like a dagger or something sharp. Somehow the combination of a weapon-like tattoo, in red, pointing at her head gives it an uncomfortable "bad feng shui" sort of vibe. Why was it necessary for the crown to be so pointy?
