The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Clunkers or What Are You Wearing?

Clunkers

Or

What are you wearing?

I recently posted a beautiful dress on my Fb page. As many of you know I love fashion and beautiful things. Oh just had a flash back, I had a hand writing expert on flight years ago and she said after analyzing my hand writing that I loved things and beauty. Ha- who knew? But that is another blog about that woman. She was veeery interesting! PhD in Psychology and taught at the college level.

Anyway, one of my Fb friends Marilyn Trainor Storey who is the designer behind MS Design Maven, www.msdesignmaven, saw a comment of mine on Fb about getting out of those tennis sneakers and made a comment back that she called them Clunkers. I simply loved that! They are clunkers and only look good in your Tennis whites. Which we all know now, those white outfits are rather passé. The Williams sisters made sure of that. But the point here students is that unless you are really going outside to your own courts or off to the club keep the clunkers off your beautiful manicured toenails!

Now let me give you a perfect example of clunkers and Dowdy! Mr. Smythe and I went to our favorite little Mexican restaurant recently for dinner. We parked the car and walked around to the front door of the restaurant to be greeted with a vision of a woman who was getting into her big new Mercedes. Was the vision good? NO!!

Here is someone who can afford to drive a new Mercedes, carry the biggest Louis Vuitton bag I think I have ever seen, and what was on her feet? You guessed it Clunkers!!

She had on jeans, which we have no problem with since you can rock a great pair of jeans with a fabulous belt, blouse and obviously NO clunkers.

But it gets even worse!! How could it? Oh trust me on this one it was even worse than the pair of Clunkers!

Her jeans were too big and definitely too long; they were rolled up at the ankles, showing off her Clunkers and socks. Yes my eyes had immediately been drawn to her feet and then they proceeded to take in the rest of the look. She had on an oversized jacket that looked like it should really be her husband's and the hair! OMG students! What have we told you in the School of Flaunt Handbook? LOOK IN THE MIRROR!! It does not lie!

She had hair down to about three inches past her shoulders, grey, stringy, and looked like it had a bad perm for it had that little wavy thing going on! I did not want to stare but I think she needed to go to the Chanel counter for a makeover too. Probably a good guess, just saying.

Students, I would rather see you in an Eco friendly car, like a Ford Fiesta, looking great than driving a Mercedes (where she obviously spent all of her money) and looking terrible.

Now I would like to add here that we at the School of Flaunt do not subscribe to the theory of judging a book by its cover but many do. This woman probably was a lovely person but it was hidden under that ugly get-up (I refuse to call it an outfit) and that hair and NO makeup look! Please we are begging you here, only wear your Clunkers on the court or when NO one can see you. Get a makeover and start looking in the mirror! Merci!

Note to myself: I will have to start carrying copies of The School of Flaunt Handbook in the car to pass out. Oh this is an uphill fight! Puhleese don't let me know that you haven't purchased yet! www.schoolofflaunt.com

XO,

Alexandra
