What Not To Wear/Women's Conference Edition

This post was inspired by Alison who has done some fabulous public service with her What Not To Wear at Disneyland and on a cruise posts. She thought it was too snarky to do a WNTW/WC.
I am snarky.
I took away a few golden nuggets from Women's Conference. Life lessons really.
1. Never wear a golden leather jacket.
She thinks she's a movie star wearing her sunglasses indoors.
2. There was a plethora of Mom jeans. These must be banned.3. Never wear a mu-mu
Please don't miss the plaid jumper with white hose.
4. Jumpers and hose should be against the law.
5. When your daughter is over the age of 8 please don't dress to match.
Daughter-cute
Mom-try again

6. My partner in crime posed to catch this beauty called floral gone wrong.
The lady under the Subway sign looks cute and I like her jacket.
I just feel it is my duty to inform my readers of all the important lessons that I learned at Women's Conference.
If you are related to any of these women, please buy them a cute new outfit.

But Diane....if I don't wear 'mom jeans' what will I wear??? I guess you'll just have to take me shopping! (I am SO jealous that you got to go to WC!!)

I must be snarky, too, because i think this post is hilarious! I think my favorite was the jumper with the hose and dark colored flats.. nice.

I'm with Michelle, this is a great post! Really?!?! A gold leather jacket? Really?!?! Huh!!!

Lauren in GA said...

This was great reading!

I guess I am going to have to get rid of my golden leather jacket, now. Thank you for this helpful post.

This IS the reason to go anywhere! What better lessons could you learn? I am great at WNTW for everyone else, but I often look at my reflection in a window as I stroll jauntily past, and realize I'm fodder for someone else's WNTW post. If you ever see me, don't tell me.

I'm just waiting to see what the dress of the summer will be, brought to you by Down East Outfitter and the BYU clothing store.

i feel some odd sense of relief that you liked two different sets of earrings on me, my watch, my gray belted jacket, and my pink smocked shirt.

i have never felt so eyeballed in all my life. well, maybe back in the day at the clubs, but that was more for my firm, tight butt than my outfit.

Annemarie said...

Ahhh...the memories. What about all the bad hair? Please tell me that's mext.

We're going straight to hell.

Annemarie said...

And a special thanks to "miss gold leather jacket". She ended things perfectly for us.

Ok, that was my grandma in the plaid jumper with the white hose and I am highly offended right now!!
(hee hee hee hee ::))

+L said...

whoa. gold leather is too much look. and the white hose- they were burning my eyes. yeesh! thanks for a good laugh!!

Ilene said...

Oh how I wish I could get you to shop for my mom. She wears the mommiest mom jeans and her shoes are even worse (black reeboks). No matter what I say to her she won't do anything ("I'm too fat. I don't want to buy clothes.").

If she had made it to WC, you would have had a picture of her for sure. She wears capris with socks and sneakers.

I love my mom but she needs to spend some money on clothes.

I'm so going to get major payback when Laura is older and starts criticizing me.

Brigitta said...

so funny. I like this conference edition.

Christie said...

Seriously. I wish I had a dollar for every pair of mom jeans I saw at WC. I'd be a RICH, RICH woman.

I like snarky. Keep it up.

Paige said...

Oh now I feel like I was actually there! Fantastic.

Hazen5 said...

Dang, Allison and I took a picture of some fabulous hair for this post! I forgot to email it to you.

You are good with a camera!

Andie said...

You are FABULOUS! This post cracked me up. I'm always proposing "What not to wear" segments in my travels. In my mind at least. The Vatican had some great material. I'm going to put it into actuality. He he.

Heidiram said...

You crack me up! Thank you for enlightening us with your fashion sense.

Oh Diane...
I couldn't think of anyone better to take the reigns of this project!

Snark away my dear, snark away...

Loves :)

Sunshine said...

I love a little snark! You make me laugh.

Tristan said...

I am so laughing at the hideous and cheap looking gold leather jacket...but what makes it even more funny is those stupid sunglasses worn indoors! PLEASE! LOL

I miss you!

Laurie said...

oh my word. that was a riot. loved it. :) i needed a laugh today.

Valerie said...

Wow! You had some great finds!! A very successful WNTW/WC!!

Rae said...

I am dying!!!!!! This is the absolute BEST!!!!!

The Family Johnson said...

I'm on the snarky train too! Hillarious!!!

Jenna said...

That's awesome! I was thinking everyone would look like that, but I was pleasantly surprise by how many cute outfits there were.

BTW, whoa on the floral gone wrong.
