So, did anyone remember Ruby Shoesday this week? Major kudos if you did! I personally opted for the burgundies that lovely Corey sent me…
At the bus stop today was a chubby pre-teen girl wearing a pair of sequined harem pants. We’re talking hideous black harem pants with sequins sewn ALL OVER. Over at The Fashion Police we mock the harem pant, and I believe I can promise you NEVER to succumb to their siren call myself… yet I found it impossible to look at this girl with anything but respect.
When I see these pre-teens trialing fashion-forward styles I can’t help but be impressed by their courage. I can imagine this little girl getting slated by her peers for her choices, and therefore have to applaud her bravado. What I see, rather than a fashion victim, is a fashion blogger of the future.
Would any of us be the stylish ladies we are today had we not gone through experimental phases when we were younger? How do we learn what does or doesn’t suit us if we don’t try everything once? And do those mocking schooldays not prepare us for the strange looks we might one day garner as we board the bus in our own, somewhat daring outfits?
That chubby wee girl made me feel quite proud!
