Why They’d Never Take Me on “What Not To Wear”

I love TLC’s show “What Not To Wear,” but I’m fairly positive they’d never take my self-nomination, and here’s why:

  • I’d actually want to be there.  It seems like their guests have gotten more and more confrontational lately – the editing department wouldn’t have to touch the *bleeping* sound effect once if I were on.  I’m guessing my total willingness to listen might make me a poor candidate.
  • I’m not a complete “fashion disaster.”  I’m more of a “fashion couldn’t-care-less-er.”  I think if I HAD $5000 before now to spend on clothes, I may have done fairly decent for myself.  Well…maybe that’s not entirely true – I do need a lot of advice on how things ought to fit.  But honestly, I am not as worthy of a jaw drop as some of their previous guests.  They might actually let me keep one or two things.
  • I don’t have any big “event” to show off for in the next…I don’t know…forever.  A lot of times they revolutionize someone’s look in time for a reunion or wedding or shuttle launch – something BIG.  But my life is pretty ho-hum, which either imitates or reflects my current wardrobe, which brings us back to the couldn’t-care-less thing.  I’m not sure they’re gonna want to gussy me up to come back for potty-training a 2yo or teaching my 16yo to drive.
  • They’d never get me into a sleeveless or low-cut or capped-sleeve or see-through blouse or dress.  I’ve got pretty strict rules (and actual, physical limitations) on modesty.  I can just see the look on Stacy’s and Clinton’s faces as they are stumped by this particular roadblock.

So you see, as an average, ordinary, don’t have much going on, might have fashion if I had the time and money gal with strict rules on neck – and hem – lines, I’m not sure I’m attractive fodder for a reality makeover show.

But guess what!  I’m applying anyway!  Within the week, I’ll have my application submitted, and I’ll let you know if I’m ever proven wrong about this post.  Interested in applying yourself?  FOLLOW THIS LINK.
