I am participating in a fun group called "Tuesday Tell All". Here is this weeks assignment:
We all have those pictures from the past that we wished we didn't. The ones that make us think "what were we thinking when we got dressed that morning"?
Trends are fun at the time, but can later come back to haunt us. Think overalls, high waisted jeans and pegged pants.
This week's assignment is to pick an item from your wardrobe that you love now, but think in five years will fall into that category (or already does).
So with Clinton and Stacy in mind, here are my thoughts. I have surmised my closet and found that the trendy things that use to live there are gone. (Note to self: must go shopping) I can't find anything I think would be completely laughable in say five years. There are several fashion fiasco's (past and present) that I will address.
Low(low)-rise jeans- I mean the jeans that are so low rise there is no where else to go...very uncomfortable. I am usually trying to keep my backside covered when I stoop down, or wishing the girl in front of me would. I have seen more of this "crack" epidemic than I would care to share. I would be happy to see them go away from the fashion scene. (No high -waist though.)
Crocs- HATE.THEM. Could there possibly be an uglier shoe made? My kids wear them. I am fine that they use them for pool or beach use, but seriously? Are they not the ugliest shoes? Don't send me hate mail...I know they are comfortable... but I would rather wear a pair of foot-cramping, toe-pinching shoes any day than to walk around in those things!
Stirrup pants- Had them. Wore them. Hope and pray they never resurface. What were any of us thinking? Not attractive on any body type.
White hose- You know you wore them too. Awful. Terrible. Ugly. My legs are white enough in the winter without pointing it out (thank you) with the whitest of white hosiery. The only folks that should be wearing these are nurses.
Shoulder Pads-Do any of us really want to look like a linebacker? No. What or Who decided all dresses and tops should be accessorized this way? Better yet...why did we listen?
