What fashion fad do you wish you could forget?

I used up my lifetime quota for hairspray during the years between 1987 and 1992.

I wish I could forget skinny jeans but people keep wearing them.

Especially on men- just ew. There is a relatively small percentage of the population that skinny jeans look good on.

The gigantic eyeglasses of the 1980s are the fashion item I'd refuse to wear again.

Skinny jeans and low rise jeans. And the stripper heels that seem to be so popular these days.

I do! I was thinking a few years ago that Mork would be a good adult costume for Halloween, IF you could find some of the suspenders .

I hate to tell you, but I just bought some big dark purple plastic framed Ray-Bans for my everyday glasses. They are the "new thing." I love not having tiny little glasses anymore! Bring on the big frames that I can actually SEE out of in nice plastic colors! I'm torn between getting a new pair of metal frames for re-enacting and buying a second pair of glasses just like these but in a different color!

I the skinny jeans! Hey, I wore them as a teenager in the 80's (of course with a higher waist line) and still love them! My mom wore them back in the 60's.

It's funny...thinking back there were so many fashion rules to follow! no white between Labor day and Easter...if midis or maxis were in, then the other was out. If your jeans were around your ankles, then they were "high water pants" and awful! Isn't it wonderful we can basically wear anything nowpolka dots with stripes...are you kidding me, we would have been laughed out of town for thatThe fashion fad I most want to forget is how unforgiving we were!

I love skinny jeans.

I think the worst things are Uggs, pleated front pants, destroyed denim (and any "whiskered" denim), Ed Hardy, Crocs, those shoes with the toes, anything that says Juicy or Pink on the butt, Juicy tracksuits, ... I could go on but that's probably enough for now. (And I've never worn any of these things.)

But again, skinny jeans are awesome.

I have to admit to two--regrettably--please don't judge--lol's

1. The red corduroy platform shoes I owned in the 1970's. Yes, they had red corduroy on the platform part, and on the top the bow was made with red corduroy floral material. I thought I was soooo cool!!

2. My red Sally Jessie glasses that appear in the ALL the photo's with my kids when they were little--WHY didn't someone tell us we looked ridiculous.


What I wish I could wear again--oh yeah, that would be my Calvin Klein's/Gloria Vanderbilt jean. You remember the 'nothing comes between me and my Calvin' era jean--those were amazing!!
