...just go away!
You remember that Motley Crue song that had the refrain, "Girl, don't go away mad...just go away"?
If I wasn't sick and didn't have the voice of Kermit the Frog, I'd be standing on street corners singing the "just go away!" part of that song to all of the designers who thought it would be a good idea to reintroduce sweater dresses this year. Yes! Those piece-of-shit looking things from the late 70s/early 80s have made their way back into stores.
And I saw someone crossing the street in Portland today wearing leg warmers.
Neither of these ideas were good back in the day, so why resurrect them now? Are people actually purchasing these? If so, are designers having a serious laugh, as this whole thing was a big fucking joke?
I'm not a fashionista, but I draw the line at looking like a sock monkey.
And doesn't a dress made of sweater sound, um, hot and itchy?
What's next in the retro wave? The return of woolen underwear?
With options like these, it's hard not to protest and walk around naked.
