I was thinking of how much more fashion oriented I used to be when I was younger. Now trends are changing so fast I can barely keep up and sometimes even understand. Here's a list of what I'm talking about:
Lingerie Swimwear: The Mr., Chitlin, and I were all at the beach one day when I noticed a group of girls. "Are they wearing Lingerie?", I asked. "That can't be waterproof....Is that the style nowadays?" ...."Honey?" .....I had lost him at "Lingerie".
Feathers: I love feather earrings! I went to the little boutique I love, saw one in brown and gold, and purchased. When I opened the box there was only the one I had brought up to the register....where was its mate? To Google I went and there it was...."One Feather Earring Trend" Of course...why did I think its mate would be hidden behind the register somewhere?
Risque Work Attire: Now that it's getting hot outside... Lacy bras, and boobage, and short skirts. Oh my! So, I thought nothing of the day I decided to wear my fancy tube top and wide leg jeans. That was also the day I found out no one really wears tube tops anymore.
What had happened to me? I used to think I had some inkling of what was going on. As these thoughts went through my mind I did a quick mental checklist of my past fashion stages to make myself feel better.
The Gwen Stefani: Colored baggie Dickie's with white boy tank. Accessorized with a belt, red bra, and, of course, red lipstick. CHECK
The Avril Lavigne: T-shirt and tie. CHECK
The short lived Clueless: Plaid jumper and knee highs. CHECK
?: Tight half top and jeans. I don't know what to call this, but definitely CHECK
Hmmmm....younger me would me disappointed in early 30's me. I began to feel dead inside...my head started to droop and my hand went up to tuck my unbrushed for days hair behind my ear. It was right then when my fingertips touched my single feather earring and I smiled....."I'm Still Hip with It"
