October 17th is Wear Something Gaudy Day
you're looking for something to do today then head over to your closet
because it's Wear Something Gaudy Day! Oh yes, it's your time to
shine! So let's get right into celebrating Wear Something Gaudy
WHY IS THIS A
Why not? Normally, if you wear something too bright and flashy,
you get weird looks from people, insults thrown at you or people laugh
about your clothing behind your back. But who cares? Why let someone
else control what you wear, especially if you like your gaudy clothes?
So today is a day to stand out, do your own thing and if it's gaudy
then so be it! If you think you look good in it then that's all that
matters today. But what's it take to be considered gaudy? Well,
someone just has to think that what you're wearing isn't very
fashionable; that's it's over the top and a bit too flashy. Something
bright and really showy, like if you walked around wearing a giant
disco ball. It has to be something that will turn heads and then cause
people to make a face of shock and disgust as their eyes follow your
every move. And if you need a little help, then take a look at some of
the stuff Lady Gaga (AKA Lady Gaudy) wears from time to time.
"fashion police" are going to have their hands full today! And good for
them because when people pay that much attention to what you wear then
they're just wasting their precious time. Why judge people on what they
chose to slide over top of their body today? Would you rather people be
walking around naked? You'd have a lot more to say then, huh? So,
let's get gaudy!
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, do you have something
that people always trash talk when you wear it? Then break that baby
out today and wear it with pride! Put a little pep in your step and say
"thank you" to any and everything people say about what you're wearing.
I don't care if they say that it looks like your mother dressed you or
that you look like you escaped from the circus... give them a "thank
you" and move along. You could also get together with some
friends and head to the thrift store today. See who can find the
craziest accessory or article of clothing. When you've all found your
gaudy gear, then go ahead and buy it, slip it on and then march down
the street as the newly formed gaudy gang. You may cause some car
accidents, but then again you might just start a new trend. ;)
if you're crafty, you might just want to make your own gaudy gear at
home. Take some shirts, hats or pants and think of how you make it
really flashy. Maybe you could dye it a neon color and glue glitter all
over it. You might even want to break out the rhinestones and a couple
jingle bells. There's more than one way to be loud! ;) Heck, bring back
puffy paint if you feel so inclined! Have a great day and enjoy
the faces people make at you!
