I think someone in the fashion world needs to get real. They come out with a plethora of combinations that often conflict and call them trends so someone will buy them.
None of it makes any sense. Much of what I see is in the OMG category. And the fashionistas, at least the younger ones, aren't any better than the designers. I saw a picture of a plus size blogger touting a mini-shirt that was skin tight and barely covered her butt, and she was saying how great she looked (NOT).
I have another friend that's a Sales Associate with Macys and she says that middle-aged women often go into the fitting room with 30+ pieces and then leave them - can't make up their mind or just decide the pieces are not good enough. I can believe that.
Let's just stop calling this stuff trends and just call it "stuff".
Throw the trends out the window and just buy for your body shape and color. Maybe we should have one day a week and call it "wild hair up your ...... day and wear any God-awful combination that you want because it makes you feel good.
Sorry to rant, Jane. Sometimes it gets all a little too much for a rational person.
