Good news, bad news
I base my fashion taste on what doesn't itch - Gilda Radner 1946-1989)
Good news - thongs are out and boy pants are in. I'll reserve judgement until I've tried some.
Bad News - leggings are coming back. If you're thin your legs look like liquorice sticks, weigh anything over 100lbs and they look like badly stuffed black puddings
I've been doing some research of 1970's fashion - did we really wear those huge platform shoes and dreadful psychedelic printed dresses and shirts? Well, yes we did. Then came the '80s with big shoulders and 'power' dressing and big hair. Then came the '90s with....... what? I truly can't think of anything that belongs exclusively to that decade and the trend has continued into the '00s. Style seems to have disappeared and if you 'dress up' these days you are in the monority.
I'm off now to get changed into my jeans and t-shirt!!
