Capturing life's momentary events

I am really hoping I'm missing something here.

I'm hoping this outfit is cool and I just, like, don't get it. I'm trying to get it, really.

Is this attire considered decent? This lady, and I use the term loosely, is actually wearing an undershirt in public. And it's a muscle-type undershirt mostly seen on muscle men. This undershirt couldn't cover armpits or bra straps.

The ridges of the undershirt expanded and contracted when she breathed, thus attracting attention to her string bean frame. The expansion and contraction arrested my attention for a few moments. I thought I was watching the hospital respirator of a deathbed victim.

She hunkered over the postage stamp sized table and scarfed her pie. The camouflage hat was pulled down across her brow. Her hair was tucked up underneath like a wiring harness under a greasy undercarriage. Her tiny pony tail jutted out rudely from under the cap like the cigar tailpipe of a kid's souped-up Honda Civic.

She did have a pearl stud earring, in her ear. Sometimes they appear other places but this one at least was in the right place.

Seriously, I wouldn't even wear this get-up in private.

It's always the badly dressed people who are the most interesting. - Jean Paul Gaultier
