Comment on Wear or Die: The Wrong Trousers by Sarah.

Have we done something to offend you? or did the fashion police get up on the wrong side of the bed today?
I am simply at a loss to understand why — for the love of God WHY? — you hate us so.
I thought your job was to keep us safe from these kinds of egregious offenses.
These are the kinds of crimes for which you lock people up and throw away the key.
Have you gone MAD WITH POWER?
Fashion Police, it’s time to ask yourself, “What went wrong?”

Style on Trial: Sweat pants with heels
This reminds me of something that makes me burn with shame every time I think of it.
A while back a so-called “friend” posted a photo of a group of friends from the ’80s on his Facebook page (I am quite old, you see). In the pic, I am wearing a man’s white shirt and jacket, rain boots, and pink pants.
The pic, being a scanned copy of a low res image, is not very clear, so I had to wrack my brain to figure out what on earth I was wearing on my lower extremities and why?
As near as I can figure, the pink pants were sweat pants (that shade of bright fuscia we really liked in 1984) and I put them and the rain boots on because we had stayed up that whole night and gone walking on the railroad tracks until dawn, when the pic was taken.

I probably started the evening in heels and a mini skirt (still sort of a ridiculous outfit with the man’s jacket and white shirt, but not as bad as with the sweat pants and rain boots)

But what haunts me is I don’t remember. Did I actually think that was a good outfit to wear? Then there’s the injustice of it all — why, of all the photos taken of me in the 80s, some of which might even have been rather cute, did this one surface on the Interwebs?
Oh, the humanity!

Anyway, this was just my long-winded way of saying I really hate the sweat-pants-and-stillettos look.
