Okay, so another TV thing... I swear, I absolutely do other things besides sitting in front of our super gargantuan television!

I was watching an episode of "What Not to Wear" on TLC this afternoon, and I noticed a GLARING error!  Normally, I kinda love this show.  (Truth be told, I wish they'd call me to be a guest host.  I mean, the things some of those crazy people pull out of their closets is just abhorring.  I'd love to be able to tell them what I think without it being socially unacceptable.)  But today is the first time I paid close attention to the opening credits.

I noticed a fake traffic sign posted on the side of some under-construction edifice.  The sign reads "WHITE SHOES PERMITTED AFTER LABOR DAY."

Now thank God for DVR, so I could rewind to make sure that I had read correctly.  I thought perhaps I had missed the word "NOT" preceding "PERMITTED."  But alas, I had not missed this  word.

Clearly, white shoes are permitted from the period following Memorial Day up until Labor Day.

*As a side note, these particular shoes are NEVER permitted.  But I felt that the picture supported my message.

For shame, Stacy and Clinton.

But have no fear, friends.  I've contacted TLC to inform them of their erroneous ways and to save them from further embarrassment.  (Of course I did.)  I expect to see a correction in the near future. 


  1. Came upon your blog and love it, but I do disagree on one thing - I believe you can wear white AFTER Easter (not Memorial Day). I agree after Labor Day - it ends. Keep up the cute posts.

  2. Hi there! Thanks so much for the nice words about my blog...and thanks for reading! I think the die-hard traditionalists may argue the Easter point with you, but I also think it may be a geographical thing. In warmer climates, white shoes at Easter are a-okay. But in the chilly north (where it's quite possibly still snowing at Easter), maybe not-so-much. Either way, I'm okay with it as long as I don't see white shoes on your feet blending in with the January snow!
