Pervy New Dress Code
  • A woman claims she was fired from O’Hara’s, a bar near UCLA, for complaining about a new dress code for women that required wait staff to wear short, plaid school girl skirts ¬†and place fans around the restaurant to blow their skirts up! Ew. Creepy. The woman wrote a letter to her boss registering her complaint, then quickly saw her hours reduced before being fired three days later. That fan thing is straight-up sexual harassment: indefensible in any workplace.

An IM Conversation at Frisky HQ:

Jessica: Oh, Lord, a chess tournament has banned cleavage.

Amelia:  I love chess.

Jessica:  But do you love playing chess with your titties hanging out? Apparently that’s a problem.

Amelia:  Especially then. I would do it to distract my opponent if they were a 15-year-old prodigy. Keep reading »

  • Somebody has just cursed himself a lifetime of callused handjobs on Valentine’s Day: a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, received a handwritten message from a fellow student this Tuesday telling her, basically, that she was dressed like a slut! As you can see from Brittany Molina’s not-at-all-revealing outfit and the snotty letter above, her dress, cardigan, and tights made some dude feel as if he was not “safe, morally as well as physically” in Britt’s boobalicious presence. An Honor Code like this in practice can become little more than an excuse to slut-shame female students when they dress in a way that makes your weenie tingle. I don’t have any problem with a school having a dress code for both genders. But I do have a problem with people policing the way other women dress in a shameful and punishing way. You know, like in Afghanistan or at the CPAC conference. [The Daily What]

Girls Wear Too Much Makeup, So UK School Removes Mirrors From Girls’ Bathrooms

Talk about an “extreme makeover”: a UK high school removed mirrors from the girls’ bathrooms after girls flouted the dress code rules about makeup. Shelley College in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, once allowed female pupils over age 14 to wear “discreet” makeup. But “five or six girls … the ones who wear the most makeup” continually overdid it in the tastefulness department, so the school felt forced to respond. Now all female students except for those in their six form (the British equivalent of 12th grade) are forbidden from wearing makeup at school and mirrors have been removed from the girls’ bathrooms to boot! “There comes a point when you need to stop teachers spending half an hour in the day talking to girls about their make-up,” the school principal told the UK’s Daily Mail. “It is more sensible to say it’s not allowed.” All teachers have been given makeup remover in case a girl runs afoul of the ban.

Jane Aldridge Constantly Violated Dress Code—Did Your Outfits Get You In Trouble, Too?

When you’re a teenager and have a closet like Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge, you’d imagine that the high school halls would be your runway. Turns out, Jane’s dreams were often cut short because she was constantly getting in trouble at school for her fashion choices. In this video (starting around 42 seconds), she explains that “I felt so repressed by public school, how, like, they tried to make every kid the same and if you didn’t wear the same thing as everyone else then you had to go to, like, a special class … I was sent to the office everyday for the shoes I wore.” We admit that we were sometimes reprimanded for violating dress code—although our belly tops and showing bra straps were a far cry from Chanel platform heels.

What about you—were you ever sent to the principal’s office for your high school wardrobe? Did you act out with fashion as a teen? [Stylelikeu] Keep reading »
