The scariest thing I've seen this year...

I went to Target to pick up a prescription today, and as I walked toward the pharmacy department, I saw, prominently on display...STIRRUP PANTS.

NOOOOOOOOOOO! I wish I could tell you it was a coffee-induced hallucination, but alas, I cannot.

I love lots of things about the 80s - jelly bracelets, music, the Psychedelic Furs, among other things...but not fashion!

Some things that went on in the 80s should stay in the 80s - and this includes stirrup pants, Debbie Gibson, neon clothing, fake moles, puffy paint t-shirts, Reaganites, and pegged jeans.

That is just 10 kinds of wrong!

I remember when I got my first pair of stirrup pants. I thought I was so cool.

SOOOOOOOO wrong. Next the boots you fold down, that you use to wear with the stirrup pants, will come back. And then the oversized shirts that you wear with a big belt and a huge 'blazer' with shoulder pads. that was my John Hughes High school nightmare.

I laughed when I read this..we were wearing stirrup pants in the 50's..they were called Ranch Pants..LOL

Ranch pants! That makes sense.

Viva: If shoulder pads come back, I think I'll be forced to cry.

Jessica: I never wore any, nyah nyah!

I think the best part of stirrup pants is the tightness of the stirrup pants worn is usually inversely proportionate to the size of the wearer. Now, I am hardly one to speak, but memo to...uh..."big-boned people"; two items you should not wear; spandex and stirrup pants. And should you combine the two and I inadvertently see it, I will contact my lawyer and sue you for every penny you have for mental scarring.
