Hello folks, let’s chat…I’ve been scanning the fashion trends for Spring Summer 2017. Deep breath, girlfriends. It’s the 80’s all over again! The fashionistas are throwing it way back with a quote/unquote “fresh interpretation”. I saw pictures of these fresh interpretations. I’m hoping something was lost in translation. Granted, I’m not the high fashion type. I wouldn’t give ‘em the time of day only I love to laugh and they are a right dependable source. Take the butt facial craze. I’ll wait while that sinks in.
You good? Butt facials may sound like a contradiction but for several years now the fashionistas have been paying good money to have special beauty treatments on their backsides. They nicknamed it the Shiny Hiney.
It’s to get their behinds ready for swimsuit season. I’m a simple girl, but if one were to wear an actual swimsuit that covers one’s bottom, one’s bottom would stay swimsuit ready year-round. Am I right? The Shiny Hiney is every bit as straight running crazy as their underwear as outerwear idea. They’re still pushing that one. They think we should wear our over-the-shoulder-boulder-holders on top of our clothes. Picture that look on your Aunt Mamie. It’d scar the little ones for life.
Which reminds me. Speaking of fashion faux pas, the trailers are out for the new Wonder Woman movie, and certain people are fighting mad over the early previews. They say Wonder Woman isn’t progressive enough for 2017 because she is still shaving her armpits. Wonder Woman’s critics claim she wouldn’t do that if she came from a land of women with super power. Maybe. Maybe not. Can anyone say, “fictional character?” Sigh. I suppose she could let it grow and braid it into a lasso. That’d be a tough movie draw here in fly over country but it’d definitely qualify as a fresh interpretation.
Mama used to warn me that if I didn’t quit rolling my eyes, they’d get stuck in the back of my head. I don’t know what to expect when they start spinning like slot machines but stick around. We should know soon enough.
