It’s that time of the year again. *gasps in dread* Christmas party time. And my haute couture wardrobe of t-shirts (mostly black) with cool slogans (mostly geeky) just ain’t gonna cut it. Next Tuesday I’m off to the Initials Xmas Party. Initials being a combined party of AEEMA, AIIA, AIMIA, ATUG, EJV, IAA -whew! I started going through the websites to look for an online community where I could post (hopefully anonymously) “ahem *cough* what’s the dress code please?” or even “does anyone, y’know, like, have a black tshirt with a Xmas message on it I could borrow?”. I didn’t find one, and every time I saw the word forum I got excited. But they meant industry event not community boards.

Now you just know that Rachel Slattery with her wonderful curves and amazingly pretty, long, dark hair is gonna look stunning. Erietta will look hip and street smart as always. Josephine will be cool and sleek and sophisticated per normal. The guys will be sexeh as all-get-out in tuxes or something. At least the nerdy ones will have their once a year haircut. *fingers crossed*

Then there will be… me.

So I went to Dress Up Games for fashion advice. No, siree, not for me Vogue forums, I am a poor self-unemployed consultant after all. I can’t even afford the pirated, rip offs. Anyway back to Dress Ups. You can dress up George Dubya, or a sim or… Aha! Just what I need! Look here!

What Kevin wore to Soobin’s house to fix her PC on 27 November.

Dress Kevin – I didn’t know what to wear, so I made a website (as you do) is a site which is … umm.. errr. hard to describe? Lets say “user generated dressing decisions using collaborative tools to create fashion styles for real life fashion victim Kevin”. Or – lets not. How about, you vote on his every fashion decision, viewing Kevin’s entire wardrobe which is categorised by when it was last worn, and the most votes wins. Kevin then posts a foto of himself in the winning outfit before trotting out into public with it. Wow, people could get together and be really evil here – pink boas and stilettos to the footy anyone? Tho I guess he probably doesn’t have that in his wardrobe.

Now imagine if David Jones integrated offline fashionistas into an online community by having their customers create a real life fashion catwalk show. But wait, didn’t DJ’s drop their online shop? Hmmm, I see the shopping bag/cart but it seems to be connected to a static catalogue. Darnit. Maybe Vogue then? for charity? How about a fashion label? No? Ah well, I’ve got more important things to worry about….

…like what to wear! help!
