Claiming to be a fashionista is not something you'll hear muttered from my pie hole. I wear what I can afford and what fits. Sometimes that's not necessarily a prerequisite. I know I'd benefit from a weekend with Trinny and Susannah (Making Over America -- TLC). Goddesses of fashion and self-love/body image affirmation.
With that being said, I often question what other people put on their bodies. Today was one of those occasions. Working in a mall affords me location and time to observe, unknowingly, passers by. Upon first glance I thought this woman in her mid twenties was sporting a fashion I thought ridiculous in the '80s -- unless you were a dancer or Jennifer Beals. What I thought I saw was leg warmers worn over thong sandals. Au contraire, mon ami! They were one piece boots. Sandal boots. I ask you, what the hell is the point? I wear sandals to avoid the whole sock issue! Summer = airy footwear.
I'm thinking that without use of stockings there'd be some unruly ankle sweat and chafing. Am I too practical to find the fashion value in this footwear trend aka debacle? Talk about cobblery schizophrenia! Does a tin of Gold Bond Foot Powder accompany each purchase? Should these rank on the chart of fugly with Uggs worn in summer (or anytime)?
