When I travel I like to arm my plane seat with a crapload of fashion magazines...flying gives me 100% permission to spend tons of dough on the glossys (sadly I seem to travel most in January where mags are super skinny after the December wallop).
Anyway, as I was perusing the mags such as Marie Claire, Lucky, Elle etc, I noticed a "hammering" in of the upcoming trends for Spring. And I must say, I hate them all.
Hammer Pants - WHY? Why do you want to look like MC Hammer? It's not flattering! They say only skinny tall chicks can pull it off and sure since they pull off most stuff but even then, why would a skinny chick want to look like she's got a droopy butt like she's wearing old, smelly diapers?
Acid Wash Jeans - again, WHY? Why do we have to recycle EVERY look? I mean, these were bad in the 80's which makes them even more bad now. We don't all want to look like a Whitesnake reject.
Drawstring Bags - perfect for going grocery shopping with your grandma
Jumpsuits - sorry, have to say no to this too. Maybe it's because I have short legs and a long torso which means mucho camel toe if I were to try this...but even so, I don't think jumpsuits look good even on models. Fellow blogger Ashleigh is the only one I have seen (a mere mortal though it helps to have her model bod) make it work with her snazzy f21 number...but even that is less 80's because it was a short/corset combo. The worst? Hammer pant jumpsuits!
Tie-dye - eeeeeeh. I've seen it done right (more ombre effect and subtle) and I've seen it done VERY wrong.
Cross body bags - again, this is just a personal preference...unless I am traveling, I don't wear these...who wants their boobs seperated? Although as I write this I recall a cross-body bag that took me all over Europe and then some. I miss it.
Question #1: Any upcoming fashion trends that horrify you (or excite you)?
Question #2: So many of my usual blog reads have died a horrible death - I need to find more interesting (and hopefully funny) blogs to read and peruse...anyone have any suggestions? What's the blog you're loving at the moment and why? Yes, it can be your own :P
