I was reading People magazine (I know that is wrong too – I hate to admit it, but I do indulge in it every so often) and I saw a picture of Christy Turlington in skinny jeans that had zippers at the bottom!!!
Good grief – this has gone too far! Has the whole fashion world collectively lost their mind?!? Mistakes like that should never be repeated. Yes, I was once under the illusion that tapered jeans (with zippers even) were cool – but I got over it – in the 80’s, along with my spiral perm and plastic shoes! And I have no desire to trade in my wisdom to return to fashion stupidity.
So I am just trying to hold on and hope it goes away quickly. Fortunately stores still offer some normal looking clothes, but it is getting a little scary out there.
I am starting to worry.
What if this just goes on and on? What if we have years of skin tight jeans and slouchy boots? Do we need to have a referendum to find out what the majority actually thinks? Just because some bored fashion designers needed to redo another decade, we are all supposed to go along with it?!?
Where is the democracy in all of this?
I, for one, refuse to give in to the ridiculous whims of fashionistas who have turned a blind eye to what looks good. They want to line their pockets by forcing us to change our jeans every two years. I will not give in to them.
I cast my vote. I pledge my allegiance. I will not buy jeans that need to be zipped at the ankle.
What about you? Have you given in? Are you tapering?
