The Return of the 80's


Tapered jeans. Who knew they would be back on the runway? I picked up a fashion magazine this week to see "what's hot and what's not for the fall". As I flipped through the pages it reminded me of the old Teen Bop magazines I use to get in the late 80's. Skinny jeans, military jackets, oversized sweaters...I thought it was a fashion nightmare! I know that styles seem to go in cycles. I was really happy when bell-bottoms were the 'in thing' again. While I try to keep up with what is popular, my style is usually just jeans and a plain, black t-shirt. Based on what is 'in' this fall, I think I will keep my 'plain Jane' look!

I don't know if I can ever do the tapered jeans thing. It almost feels immoral...

I though the "What Not to Wear" women always say NEVER to wear tapered jeans, even if Versacce himself is selling them to you. Don't buy them--they make EVERYONE look fat!!! I actually saw some frosted, tight rolled jeans in a store the other day. What a shocker! Haven't designers realized yet that any style from the 80's should NOT be up for a come-back?

Frosted tight rolled jeans! What is happening?! Your right Glenna, for years 'fashion experts' have been saying that tapered leg pants make you look fat. And leggings worn underneath short dresses...I am going to learn how to make my clothes!

Yes, tapered jeans do wonders for the hips... HA!
I came across your blog, Kellye, and have enjoyed reading it for the past couple of weeks. :)

Y'all are crazy, I love tapered jeans! Just kidding:)
Someone would have to pay me a lot of money to wear them ever again!
Although, I will confess that I never left my room without tight rolling my jeans for the entire 6th grade! Bleh...what were we thinking?!? And what are they thinking bring it back?!?
