Why Did or Why Don’t: Fuzzy Was He?

By |January 8th, 2014|Why Did or Why Don't?, Why Did You Wear That?|

muppets most wantedI’m not actually sure if I remember, but know I definitely did not participate in this trend the first go round.  I, for sure, had a few angora sweaters (cropped and otherwise) back in the day, but as for this especially fuzzy sweater trend, I have no recollection.  That might lead one to believe that it’s “new” but for one we all know that nothing is truly “new” and the fact that many of these styles have been labeled as “retro” I’m led to believe that perhaps I passed into a temporary coma for the fifteen minutes in the 90’s that these sweaters stole the stage.  Having seen more than a few late teen/early twenty year olds sport the trend leads me to believe we are going to have to decide whether to love it or leave it like the Muppets left Manhattan.

Why Did You Wear That: Garage Band

By |April 25th, 2012|Personal Style, Why Did You Wear That?|

garage band chicI realize that there are now girls old enough to drink (legally), but not old enough to know who the hell Kurt Cobain is.  That doesn’t dissuade me from wearing one of my favorite t-shirts though.  I’ve had this shirt for a while now, and I”m not sure I’ll ever get rid of it.  Yes, that’ll be me.  The 65 year old woman wearing a cut off t-shirt in the grocery line.  So?  I like to pair it with the unexpected.  For this rendition, I’ve topped off a sweet pair of lace shorts with my less than ladylike t-shirt.  I specialize in contradictions.

We already know the 90’s grunge look is making a bit of a comeback, so now’s the time to revel in a bit of nostalgia by digging out those old concert t-shirts and making them new again.  And no, ‘N Sync isn’t vintage… yet.
