fashion comeback

i was out shopping with lainey the other day...and call me old...but...dang. i can say with certainty that i knew THOUGHT i knew of a few items in the fashion world that would NEVER make a comeback...and there they were. shining bright like a diamond.

exhibit a: the cropped tee

i had one several of these and was probably thinking at the time...."don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?"...and i'm sure everyone wanted to say..."she's hotter". ;)  i even wore croppy toppy with those high waisted jeans...which was NOT smart when you are hippy helen like me.  although now,  i would do just about anything to trade in my stretch mark muffin top stomach for my 15yr old stomach. why wasn't i more grateful? oh yeah...i must have been...i wore a cropped shirt...with pride.

exhibit b: the fanny pack

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! there is no possible way. my mom was the queen of fanny packs in the 80's and early 90's and we were brutal to her about it. secretly she still totally loves them and will be thrilled when i show her this picture. it's quite possible that she can dig one out of the top of her closet. but for me...this is an absolute horror for sure!

exhibit c: the acid washed jean

good golly miss molly. i never. so ugly and so unflattering. but there they were....right beside all the jeans at american eagle. my heart may or may not have leaped for joy when lainey declared she "hated those". 

what about you? any "fashion comebacks" that you declared on your life you would never wear again? :)

happy tuesday!

  1. So 80s, right! I started seeing the cropped tees everywhere last summer when I was shopping for the honeymoon and I just didn't feel comfortable wearing them. Acid wash jeans- not my thang either!
