Remember that children's story, the Emperor's New Clothes? We are living proof of it! Well, fashion is in the eye of the beholder.. and the more we see of this... the more it becomes normal and we grow to actually like it.
But seriously, I think all this just means I'm aging rapidly. When I can go to J. Crew and Gap and actually like the stuff there...(I never made a single purchase from Gap growing up.. it always felt so stuffy and old people type clothing, it wasn't until 2006 or something and that was an epic day when I bought casual khakis from there) that is a sure sign that my taste has evolved to be more mature (and expensive). It's like when the 70's came back in the form of bell bottoms and retro platforms when we were in high school and my dad laughed and laughed and then roared with more laughter as he told me time and time again, how that was stuff he used to wear in his day. It's like how everyone loves the thick rimmed big square glasses we used to make fun of my pops for having (and my brother now sports .. yes, he's a spitting image of my dad from then). Yes... fashion recycles itself but by the time you notice it, you are officially old.
Yet another sign of aging.
On another note, when do you think the MC Hammer pants will make a comeback? And my personal favorite... overalls. Come back overalls! You were so dang versatile!
