Thanks to Amy for posting these on the fanpage. As she quite succinctly put it: “They’re back …”
According to AE.com, “The 90′s are back and way better than before.” When I saw The Gap was trying to make overall dresses happen, I was baffled as to why, of all the 90s fashions, overalls were the ones that had returned from the grave.
I was all about a 90s revival back in the day. Now that it’s here, I’m can’t for the life of me figure out why I wanted to see 90s fashions come back in style. I know the flannels and Docs were enticing, but why did I have to tempt fate? It’s practically a law of fashion that the least appealing trends will be resurrected during a decade’s fashion revival.
I saw these in the Santa Monica Promenade store a few months ago, but apparently they are now an online exclusive. Smart move – I’ve found it’s bad for business to sell something that makes shoppers burst into convulsive laughter the minute they see it.
Although, it is a missed opportunity for me. Think of all the free promotion I’d get from people staring in shock at the sight of these and exclaiming, “You want me to wear what?”
