|Is this a shoe or a weapon?|
This may get ugly. And controversial. There are some fashion trends out in the world that I will not be caught dead in. For one, leggings as pants. (you can see the jiggle in my wiggle for goodness sakes!) These below trends are just wrong:
|High Low Dresses|
These dresses are ridiculous. That much deviation in hem lengths just does not make since! Sure, this may look cute on this model but according the website I snagged this image from, she's on the skinny side. With her 5'11 height and measurements of 32-24-35 most clothes hang on her. Now, image a 5'1 curvy girl with measurement that read 36-25-37 in this dress...Not cute.
The blame goes to Cinderella and my mother, but I was raised to believe that a lady's shoe should be graceful. Heels with a platform are not graceful. They are clunky.
|Cropped, Pattered Pants|
As my clients can attest, I despised cropped pants. For most of us, they cut our height in half and give the illusion of gigantic thighs. Now, the fashion folks want to add a pattern and make them skinny?
Lesson: just cause it's in the stores, on the runway, or in a mag - the look is not necessary for you.
