Arty Slick – Day 28
Congrats, Angela! You are the winner of this shirt!
My question was, “What are the best and worst dressed places on Earth?” And according to your comments, you can wear this fabulous shirt in the following best dressed places –
Italy, Cape Town, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, Paris and any place by the beach.
And in this fabulous shirt, you should also avoid these worst dressed places —
Australia, Appalachia, any place hot (that’s not by a beach) and a German tourist. That’s right. German tourists landed a spot on worst dressed places on Earth. Apparently, Germans dress just fine on their home soil, but as soon as they hop on a Lufthansa flight, style takes a vacation.
It’s funny because I always thought American tourists looked the worst. Whenever I’ve been in Europe I’ve always been aghast at the clothing choices Americans wear abroad.
And I’ve always been secretly and rather smugly satisfied by the fact that whenever my husband and I have been in Europe, we’re always mistaken for Germans. It has quite often happened that people have just walked up to us and started speaking German. It happened so much on one trip that it became a running joke and we started calling each other Otto and Olga. And each time it happened, I would be thrilled and think, Awesome! We’re obviously not dressed like tacky Americans. People think we’re cool German tourists!
I must admit, it was a fashion straw I was clinging to. I just had to drop it.
