Funny Polish photoblogs

My favourite about bad taste, kitsch, sometimes stupidity and sometimes ignorance.

Aaaby sprzedać - for some people selling things on the internet auctions is a challege;) Original pictures taken from Allegro - the biggest Polish auction portal (with great comments).

Ekskluziff - how to promote your apartment on the web before selling;) Disastrous interiors and design.

Białe kozaczki - "White high boots" (Kozak = Cossack). The symbol of cheap and primitive clothing. Worn by women any age and shape without reflection. Unfortunately usually accompanied by kitsch long nails, extremely blond or black hair, orange suntan and very short skirts. Brrrrrr.

  1. I'm sorry, but I really can't understand this Polish phobia over white footwear. You don't like white boots and I have previously heard men's white shoes and white socks condemned. It has nothing really to do with style or cost: look at some of those boots; they aren't cheap. What does it come from? I have even been told that I shouldn't wear a light coloured jacket in winter: Polish men don't do that. Given the average blue jean fashion consciousness of Polish men, that seems like a major compliment.

  2. Steve, are białe kozaczki on these photos stylish? They are cheap because it's not leather. These women have no idea what to dress and on what occasion - that's why it looks so badly. White shoes are not forbidden in Poland but I agree - we rather should avoid them. If you really like them wear sport shoes. You don't have many occasion to wear here a light coloured suit;)

  3. Thank you for your reply, Paulina. I hear what you say, but you just reinforce my view. Its just a matter of personal taste. White, red, black shoes and boots are all made of the same things. Some are leather, some made of modern materials. You can wear light coloured suits every day if you like. Ridiculing people because they wear something different just sets oneself up to be ridiculed for being plain. Not being the same as everyone else is one of the primary aims of clothing fashion.

  4. Look how popular is this "style" - unfortunately very so they aren't different. It's not about your right to be original or creative. Of course you can wear a light suit everyday but have to think about the impression. Like it or not - we always judge by the first one.

  5. Hello my name is Dana- about 'biale kozaczki'...I had the same point of view like Paulina, when I was living in Poland. I think we (Polish nation) have very much to learn still to expanse our point of views. I am sure that 'biale kozaczki' are more expensive and stylish sometimes than stuff from Primark. And nobody cares in UK. Just wear what you want :) I agree with Steve :) If you do not like ,biale kozaczki' do not wear them.
