Ok, so due to just finishing my NCLB tech writing essay (WHO CARES???), lack of money and therefore spare-spending-cash, and complete disgust with the Utah/Idaho fashion No-No's, I'm compelled to write something that has nothing to do with AdamandBritney.
First, I'll reveal the evil nasties of the Mountain West Trends (gouge my eyes out) so we can finish with the casual/chic pieces I've been craving to put on, and maybe even buy (shhh).
Feux-pas 1. I'll start with the one that everyone is aware of, but refuses to protest (seriously, we need signs and posters) --it's the poof. Honestly...is your hair pregnant? Is this a modern spin on the 80's mullet and 60's beehive? Has this EVER deserved a headline in a fashion magazine other than Beautifully Modest? Is there something inside of that thing holding up the mass of hairspray and matted, tacky-highlighted hair? Try this, take a poll around campus and ask a variety of guys what they think...seriously.
Feux-pas 2. AE furry-hooded sweater or vest + pastel striped henley + massive belt-buckle+ medium-wide leg faded jeans+4 inch soled cork shoes = are any of those things cute? Last I checked, adding 5 negatives makes an even more negative-nasty outfit.
Feux-pas 3. Bright, flower-printed maternity tank with matching T. Add the huge fake flower plopped in your 9x10in bun and you're good enough to be white trash. Don't even get me started on matching eye makeup...
Ok that's enough. I'm done envisioning the fashion crime of the century plaguing today's BYUI babes. This trend is seriously murdering the cuteness of many potential beauties. What would I prescribe? Banana Republic and lots of Kenneth Cole.
Now to the goods. To purge my eyes of the images of such, to say least-judgmentally, depressing "ensembles", a quick glance at the upcoming spring collections and winter sales is my garment Zoloft.
To all the girls that can afford to spend, dedicate your next spree to me with these gems:
