Fashion Tip: X Hides the Spots


Pin-Up Girl and Flower Child run up to the bathroom to get ready to go out. They're both so pretty, I find it confusing that they say they will need an hour and a half to get ready.

The bathroom door is open and I hear happy chatter and girlie giggles - I enjoy listening to them.

Pin-Up Girl comes over to my desk where I am sitting and procrastinating at blogging,"Woodsy, do you have medical tape?"

"Yes, I do. But why do you need it?" I worry that maybe one of them has poked themselves in the eye with the mascara brush (as I might do).

"Oh," sighs Pin-Up Girl, "I can't wear a bra with my new dress, so I need the tape in case of a wardrobe malfunction."

I give her the tape and continue to efficiently put off writing.

Then, I realize that I don't understand what she is going to do with the tape. Tape her dress to her bosom?

"Hey, Pin-Up Girl, why the tape?" I yell out.

"Oh, you know," she purrs back innocently, "gotta make little x's".

I don't know what this means either. Either you want your clothes to fall off in public, or you don't - in which case why wouldn't you just wear clothes that have very little chance of falling off in public? Where DOES the tape go?

Stella said...

It goes on your nipples! I usually use electrical tape.

Um.

TMI.

Manny Blue said...

Oh! I would rather people see my nipples than tape on my nipples...

Woodsy said...

XUP, you are innocent in these matters (just like me)

Stella, OUCH! Thanks for sharing.

Manny, you are so naughty.

Jen G said...

I agree with Manny.

Me too

Woodsy said...

Jen G, Manny Blue and Nursmyra, I'm with you - I'd rather show nipple than tape.

Thanks all for sharing!

Me three, or four ...so the tape on the nipples is so that if your clothes fall off people will see you naked except for an X of duct tape in the middle of your breasts, as if they were dead? And then, at some point, you have to rip that duct tape off? Do I have the gist of this now?

Woodsy said...

XUP, you get the gist of it. But, most women use electrical or medical tape. DO NOT use duct tape! A friend of mine used to use band-aids...
