Me? Sarcastic? Never! | Graphic Culottes & Slogan Tee, over 40

Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit! | Slogan Tee & Culottes | Fake Fabulous

I'm feeling feisty today!
This outfit is acting like the stripes on a wasp... a warning to anyone who thinks they can take me on.

Back off.
Don't even think about it.
The Sass-O-Meter is off the scale.

(Pst... It's all just a big attitude bluff, but no one knows that apart from you!)

Outfits like this one are a great way to appear confident and in control.
A mixture of patterns, textures and prints.
A little bit of humour.
A little bit of attitude.
A lot of fun!

This T-shirt makes me smile.
They say sarcasm is the lowest form of wit and I have to agree, but it doesn't stop me partaking every now and then!

Being sarcastic can be fun... and very funny.
A well-timed sarcastic remark can break the ice and even defuse a tense or stressful situation.
Well placed lighthearted humour can be the best medicine.

However, snarky sarcasm is never a good idea, is it?
Being sarcastic too often puts you in danger of sounding like a smart arse or stupid, and it's definitely annoying.

Personally, I love a sarcastic quip but it's only fun if the person on the receiving end 'gets' your humour.
Making a fool of someone who doesn't understand what's happening is never cool, or particularly funny.
I like being sarcastic with people who I know will fight back and give as good as they get!

From sarcasm to culottes...
There's no clever way to link those two unrelated things is there?
(Unless you can think of a sarcastic quip!)

Culottes don't seem to be going anywhere for 2018.

I struggled with them initially, but now I love the style!

My feeling towards culottes reminds me of how I used to get my children to eat food they didn't like.
I just kept giving it to them and eventually, they began to come round to the idea!

I love culottes now and I'm even looking for more.

Longer culottes are very versatile and easy to wear.
I think they look great dressed up and dressed down... any time of year.
I hope they stick around for a while longer.

What do you think about sarcasm and sarcastic comments?
Funny or just pathetic?

What about Culottes?
Are you glad they're hanging around or can't wait to see the back of them?

I'd love to hear your opinion on both!

  4. I love sarcasm, but you are right - you have to use it judiciously and with those you know will take it on. I love the outfit. Eyeball culottes. Hahaha!! Great.

    1. Thanks Melanie!
      I'm glad you agree that it's not fun unless the recipient is switched on to your wavelength.
      If they are then it's game-on!!! :oD

  5. Sarcasm is my middle name. Can’t help myself: I’m the annoying person with a sarcastic comment about everything...

  6. I haven't warmed up to culottes yet but this evil eye print (?) is getting me closer.
    I think sarcasm is best used when someone really deserves to be put in their place. Mostly because they're quick to put others down with hurtful quips. I have 20/20 hindsight with most of my sarcastic remarks and rarely get a comment off at the perfect moment.

    1. 20/20 Hindsight!
      I love that... Brilliant.
      If only we could be a quick witted and as funny in the moment?!
      I always think of brilliant come-backs, retorts and quips... 5 minutes after the event! :oD

  7. This might sound weird, but I actually think sarcasm is pretty high up on the wit scale, if that makes sense? I've heard some pretty clever sarcastic one-liners!

    I definitely agree with you on this: sarcasm is only OK when it's used in a fun back-and-forth banter. But used wrongly and you get ugly consequences; I've heard some sarcastic remarks that were meant to hurt, which were so not cool. I have a friend who used constant sarcasm to hurt another friend up to the point they're no longer friends now, eek.

    1. That's awful Liyana!
      I suppose a real friend knows when to quip and when to reign things in and be kind.
      Being hurtful is never funny.

  8. I love a sarcastic remark, when it doesn't harm anybody (even if some people could deserve it!), and also love a slogan t-shirt when worn with attitude (and you've got lots of it). So this outfit totally rocks and you look gorgeous in it!. You're even making me look at culottes as something groovy and cool!, because yours are lovely (That Print!!) and your shoes are perfect!.
