In a desperate measure to be like Bono...

...I tried on some leather pants today.

and then nearly laughed myself sick over it!!! (complete with weird looks from the fitting room warden when I came out, still snickering)

For those of you who don't know what I look like...well, let's just say....I have a looooong way to go before I lose enough poundage, and gain enough *attitude* for some sexxay leather pants!!

Bluey, I AIN'T. Blargh.

Misery loves company - anybody else ever go a little over the top when it comes to makeing themselves more like our for favorite "fashion massacres?" (Edge's words, not mine!)

disco

Oh Disco,
Lol...blush. Ummm, thanks?
I have made MANY a questionable fashion choice.
In a play I was in, I wore:
-a mini-dress made only of duct tape and fringe
-fake eyelashes
-white thigh-high go go boots

I even had a fake daggar out of the top of the go go boots and I had to do a huge stage fight scene in that get up....so don't come crying to me about leather pants Missy! LOL.
Oh, yeah...my finest hour.
And I burned all the pics...sorry.
-Bluey

It would be cool if the guys wore bell-bottoms and fringe jackets!

In an effort to be like Bono I find myself wearing my sunglasses all the time. I wear them inside shopping malls, and coffee shops. They aren't real Bono shades, but sort of a female version.

I also bought a pair of black pants with a cargo pocket because they reminded me of a pair that I saw him wear once. At least they were cool pants.

I am forever on a search for a pair of Bono-ish boots. Wish that I could afford Prada....

Hey you're quoting Marlowe's Faust, and you didn't give him credit, it's called plagiarizing young lady.

We need a fat smiley...all those skinny little icons have got to go...well...Bono looks kind of fat so I'll use that one...

Ah yes Diso...I too have a little bit of Junk in the Trunk...I tried on a pair of Vinyl pants the other day...shiiiiiiiney...OH!...so sorry, got distracted...anyway, I started laughing really hard and the people in the torture chambers(fitting rooms) around me started laughing too! One gilr yelled from her cell "Who are we trying to kid anyway..." I about died...

It's fascinating to think that all around us there's an invisible world we can't even see. I'm speaking, of course, of the World of the Invisible Scary Skeletons.

i have bought some Adamesque clothing (more feminie looking though), I own blue cammo tops, blue hats and some odd frames for glasses ( i don't even need glasses, i just think it looks cool!), but most of my wardrobe consists of black clothing (my Bono side coming thru!)...i don't think i could pull off wearing leather pants, though i may do it sometime for fun! who knows!

You know what I want to do? I want to find a ratty leather jacket that I won't feel bad about screwing up further and sew a red star on it and put staples in it and those sorts of things to make it look like the one Bono wears. But I'd look completely stupid wearing it. Oh well. How about those shiny silver pants Edge wore Zoo-tv era? I saw them in a store. Could paint on the Zooropa boy...

Hey watch it Marina, or I'll take you out back for a little um..."Christmas cheer," yeah...that's that it is...

Mullen-Girl, awwww...((((HUGS)))) you're so sweet! But uh...believe me, I'm not made for leather britches - ya gotta be either A) skinny as Larry's drumsticks; or B) tall as what those Irish lads wish they could be!

OMG - I'm watching 'Extra' right now, and speaking of fashions, they're interviewing the woman (Dana Pink) who has "...dressed U2"!!! The five top things you need in your wardrobe now?
  • 1. a big low belt with grommets on it
    1. a flowy romantic blouse
    2. pointy boots! (rats! I just bought a big ol' pair of clodhoppers!)
    3. a pair of well-worn jeans
    4. a lace blouse or skirt

No leather! I GOTTA GO SHOPPING!!!

In the Live in Boston DVD Bono has on a black v-neck with a white star on the shoulder. I want this t-shirt so bad!! Does anyone know where I could get one??? I know that I could just make one, but I am "Creativily inept".

Why don't you try that lady that dressed the boys?? Perhaps she dressed Adam in those pants, and can help you find a pair. I think that I may contact her myself for the Bono t-shirt!!!

I've got a couple of velvet dresses.

I saw a shirt just like the one Bono wore in the "Mysterious Ways" video...I was tempted to buy it...*lol*

Oh yes, for you Sparky fans...a little something to make your fantasies run even wilder--from another group:

Quote:
"Adam smells like extra mild silk cuts...the cigarettes he smokes when I
got my picture taken with him...he was also wearing a suede coat...so he smelled a bit like suede too. mmmmmm adam...let us drool together!!!"
(I'm such a tease!) Wow...such a great manly scent, tobacco and leather...it's enough to turn me into a Sparky fan as well!

*Of course, only Bono can pull them off (figuratively girls).
