One thing I do not miss about shopping is all the weird trends. There are fun trends, like the resurgence of adorable-y vintage oxfords...these are mine today...(and yes, I even sepia-toned them to up the vintage feel! Haha!)
But there are some weird-ass trends...like boots with spats (from piperlime.com):
SPATS! Vintage, but not adorable. Especially with boots.
And socks with open-toed shoes (from urbanoutfitters.com):
Is this a recession inspired fashion? Like, trying to get more out of your summer footwear?
Or one of my all time favorites (not!)...JEGGINGS! (from ae.com):
One thing I think is important is to not wear trends that have their own word designed around them (such as jeggings). Most people who have tried "jeggings" on know that truly, only models can wear them and *really* look good in them!
Now, don't get me wrong, there are always fashionistas out there that can pull these looks off. And I have mad respect for them! However, I don't think they are generally a good idea. But, then again, I can play it rather conservative...today someone told me I look quite J.Crew. Of course, I take that as a compliment, but I also realize I could get a little more trendy, at least when I can shop again.
But for the time being, I'm glad I can't shop because I have yet another excuse to not partake in the recent odd trends. Please do tell which weird trend you'd rock, or any other weird trends you can think of!:)
