Happy Holidays!

Here's hoping Santa brought you everything on your list... including pants for Skanky Santas everywhere.

If you liked it then you should have put some pants with it...

Anyone else see a resemblance to the Beyonce video here?

And for all of you lolcats out there who loved yesterday's post, this is for you:
Today's picture was sent in by a reader with a website that has nothing to do with shirts or dresses... but it's nice to know we are getting readership from fire protection engineers! Remember kids - only you can prevent shirtordresses.

If you're not familiar with lolcats, I suggest you run on over there right now before you read the rest of today's post.

I mean, don't you want to look at photos like this? Cats are dumb and all (IMO dogs rule!), but they photograph well.

So... what if lolcats changed its name to lolshirts?

It's the Shirt Dress Gang!


Plus this...

Equals this:

"Shirt Tales" was a TV cartoon about a panda bear, tiger, mole, raccoon, and a monkey that lived together in a tree, wore t-shirts, and zipped around the world in an imaginary car/jet/boat/submarine avoiding the park ranger. I'm not really certain what the point was like why would a raccoon live with a panda???, but it's important to remember that this was created in a decade that also spawned a certain cartoon about a bunch of tiny blue things that lived in mushrooms so.... whatever. People did drugs in the 80's. Obviously.

On the other hand, the "Shirt Dress Gang" is a bunch of skanks who forgot to wear pants while cramming around the DJ booth as a means to work out their daddy issues. they also probably do drugs (obviously).

Coincidentally, this DJ hasn't seen this must action since "Shirt Tales" last aired in 1985.

*Okay, technically there is really only one shirtordress in this picture. The others are just skanking out in lowrise jeans or just really short skirts, but any excuse for me to bust out my Microsoft paint skillz and I'm there! Thus, the ShirtDress Gang is born.

email your ShirtDress Gang pics to:

Alright, now the poll (for the girl on the left):

Forever A Shirt

Y'all know how I feel about Macy*s... well, here comes Forever 21 trumping Macy*s by a LONG shot. And a big thanks to Melody for bringing this atrociousness to my attention!

THIS item is clearly filed under tops on their website. Thanks for portraying it as a "top" so well, F21!


Also in the tops section...
WHATTHEHELLISGOINGON??!! Isn't she cold!? It's effing winter!

Screw Forever 21, I'm shopping at Charlotte Russe for all my socheaptheyllfallapartafteronewash items. Surely they would never mis label a shirt as a dre- aw, crap! Nevermind.

Apparently, you must pay more for a decent amount of fabric. Which I guess makes sense...
Banana Republic, here I come!

Monday, December 15, 2008

I knew I was missing something...

Shirt? Check. Scarf? Check. Pants?

Shirt? Check. Fishnets? Check. Pants?

Oh. Oops!

Shirt(s)? Check. Purple bangles? Check. Pants?

The Shress: Now for Cougars out on the prowl!

Says P.H in (I'm assuming) Ohio:

"Hey girls, I was out in downtown Columbus recently and there was a gaggle of middle aged woman who by the sight of their hair are still living in 1985! But apparently these 1985 loving townies love shirtordresses as well! I took the best pictures possible. Enjoy!!"

Obviously, this woman doesn't pay attention to the labels when ordering from Newport News. It's a sweater, not a dress. Oh! And it comes in Magenta! I'll let my mom know.

And what is the white??? Her underwear? Are you kidding me??? Note to cougar: Invest in nude panties.

That is all.

You can vote for multiple items in today's poll btdub...

An Open Letter to Macy*s

Dear Macy*s:

We are writing in order to report an error on your website. Instead of "tunic top," you have labeled this item a "sweater-knit hooded dress." Clearly, this is not a dress! Pairing an item with silver shoes doesn't automatically make it suitable to wear without pants. We expect this error to be fixed ASAP to prevent as many juniors as possible from walking around like this in public.

Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.


Essodee and JD

Pam Anderson Has Lost Her Mind

Perhaps it's in the same place as her pants.

This plaidness is madness!

A couple people sent us this picture this week. I'm not sure which is worse...wearing a flannel shirt as a dress or wearing gold tights EVER. This chick looks like a gay lumberjack (INSERT LOG JOKES HERE).

Forgiveness is more than saying sorry

According to this blog, this is a dress.
And according to the movie, "Just Friends," it's a shirt.
Or, more specifically, a shirt best suited for the night time when you are trying to seduce your formerly fat childhood best friend who is now rich and hot.

*The title of today's post is from a song from the movie. If you haven't seen "Just Friends," you should rent/buy it now. Great holiday flick! And Anna Faris is awesome.

Have I told you lately...

...that you should wear pants?

That's what Rod Stewart should start singing to his daughter, Kim.

Exhibit A:
It's a sweater.

Exhibit B:
Um. No.

Here's to Kim Stewart! The recipient of December's "Repeat Offender Award!"

Reason #247832 to NOT wear a shirt as a dress

Bending over may become difficult. On the flip side, perhaps you will make some money with the tips people will inadvertently give you.
Oh yeah, that black thing is a shirtordress as well. There is just WAY too much going on in this picture...

By the way, they are shirts. So... I'm not going to even offer you dress option in today's poll.

Save it for the Bedroom

It's bad enough that people confuse shirt or dress. Shirt or dress or lingerie? C'mon people. Let's all learn this together.

This is NOT okay.
This is probably fine.
Although I'm not sure why she'd need the purse. But I digress...

It's a shirt, bitch!

Anyone catch Britney Spears's documentary on MTV last night? She went shopping with her assistant in one scene and they debated on whether or not she was trying on a shirt or a dress.

Britney: Sarah Jessica Parker could wear it as a dress
Asst: You're not Sarah Jessica Parker.
Britney: You don't think?
Asst: It's a shirt.
Britney: Okay, it's a shirt.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She finally figured it out. We were worried...

I secretly looooove Britney. :)

You think she shops at Macy*s?

Because this kind of looks like a dress from yesterday's post...
So I guess this is her during her "day out with friends..." because I'm pretty sure pink in the corner isn't her hot date. a bar.... the bathroom...

I'm told that a majority of the pictures from recent posts are all girls that hang out with each other. You think that when they get ready to go out, they say "Okay! I have to go get shirted" in lieu of getting dressed? Yeah, I think so, too.

Ooooh also, it seems that Shirt or Dress has received an award from both Scarlett & Gigi so I think this means Essodee and me are moving up in the world. Sweet. And I'll blog more about it over here...

I'd like to thank the academy. Thanks Academy!

Macy's, Macy's - Why have you forsaken me!?!?


"A country-chic plaid shirtdress that can be worn with leggings or over jeans..."

Oh really!? Then WHY is your model wearing NEITHER?

Thanks to Kim Burley for submitting this gem.

Also from Macys:

"a timeless look that's always in style"

God I hope not.

"takes you from a day out with friends to a hot date at night"

Somehow, I think everyone would ask me who I hooked up with the night before if I wore this during a "day out with friends." Who wants brunch? I'm wearing this. Seriously, M. You're lucky that I love your Thanksgiving Day parade and your one day sales or else I'd be cutting up my Macy's card stat...

Um... your butt is showing.

Just thought you should know.

Fashion tip of the day: STOP TRYING TO LOOK PREGNANT!!!

Also, stretching a shirt over your ass doesn't make it a dress. It's see thru because you stretched it you retard. And you went and posted it on your facebook page anyway... ?

Like. Seriously. People are just screwing with me now, right? This can't be real. Someone sent this as a joke, right? "Oh hey - let's send this over to that chick who has that shirt or dress blog hahahaha."

Does anyone have friends anymore????

Q: Why were beer goggles invented?

A: So girls wearing sh*t like this could hook up.

Pink, I really love the open toe slingbacks you're wearing with your shirt.
Blue, All I have to say is "Shirt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
And Brown? What can brown do for you? Hell if I know what hookers charge these days.
Finally, to Leopard... okay, so that's a dress (an ugly dress).

I think Brown wins the "most shirty of all shirtdresses so far in this blog" award. Congratulations. Your friends must hate you.

How to win a game of beer pong! Jon discuss the shirt/dress

20SB Blog Swap 3

Today's guest post is brought to you by
Suffering With A View.
This is all part of the 20
Something Bloggers
Swap 3
Don't forget to go check out my
over on her site.

This is my guest post on Shirt or Dress. To be honest I had some
great post ideas that involved me or my friends dressing in drag and
having my friends girlfriend comment on our attire. Sadly it did not
work out due to time constraints and a heavy workload.

So instead I ran through my facebook photos for some scantly
clothed females that might have attended one of my frat parties back
in the day. I realize that our parties were in a cold frat basement so
their weren't a lot of skirts/dresses going on.

The bars would have been perfect for documenting said phenomenon
(shirt or dress) however I rarely bring cameras to bars with me so
I've got none of that.

Instead I've got a girl that caught my friends eye during beer pong
and led to my several wins. She was dressed up as a slu.... cop? I'm
pretty sure she was wearing a dress but when sitting down looked like
she was wearing nothing. I would call this outfit more of a shirt as
the dress part is clearly not doing it's job.

Please ignore the hand with the ping pong ball attached to the body
wearing the priest outfit.

The price tag from Forever 21 clearly said "tunic top..."

See!? Requires pants.

You're not supposed to drink when you're pregnant!

Bless your heart, you're so zapped of energy from your pregnancy that you forgot your pants at home. Poor girl.

Oh. You're not pregnant? Huh. Then why the eff are you wearing a maternity shirt??!

Also, your friend washed her kid sister's dress one too many times. She really should use Tide. It keeps your clothes fresher longer (up to 30 washes!)

Finally, who's the guy wearing the jean shorts? AND Ed Hardy shirt. UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGH. This entire picture is atrocity at it's worst. If he were wearing sunglasses, I think my head would explode.
