OUR DAILY PINS

I went to the mall today….my three year old was at preschool so I’ve started to squeeze in some retail therapy with my infant. Anywho, I went into the Gap this afternoon and saw something that I wish I hadn’t…stirrup legging jeans. Yes! For real. Look, I found them online too! Yuck.

I gotta say, I actually stood there, in the Gap, for about five minutes staring at the display in complete disbelief. I nearly had to slap myself silly just to knock the 80s outta me. What, with the clogs and the stirrup jeans and the off the shoulder Flashdance look all coming back, I kinda feel like an adolescent again.

I guess I should have kept all my old clothes from that era. Hell they’d be vintage now and I bet I could collect a pretty dime on eBay, right? Put my old Benetton t-shirts up for bid next to my florescent yellow and pink socks which were always worn double layered and scrunched. I even saw some girl sporting a side ponytail at the mall... abet a scrunchy. Come on people! This must have been what my parents felt like when for a brief time in high school, I relived the 60’s and all its Flower Power to boot.

I’m just glad that I’m old enough to not have to run out and buy the latest stirrup jeans because these thighs have seen too many Kit Kats of late and the rest of my body, well two kids later – it’s shot to hell. I’ll happily stick with my regular boot cut jeans. Although I have to admit, I did buy a pair of Gap’s cropped skinny button jeans – I just fell in love with those three metallic side buttons and to be honest the cropped version fits me like a regular pair of jeans! Yes I am short.

So, now I have to ask, what hot trends from your youth have come back to ‘haute’ you of late?
