The problem with putting deeply unflattering things back in the cupboard….
….rather than getting rid of them completely….
….is that you might be tempted….
…..sometime in the future….
….to wear them again!
Birkenstock the only place for frumpy, dumpy, but oh so comfy shoes. Well there, together with Office, Schuh and plenty of other places that have increased their stock now that they are THE shoes of the season. Thanks for that one Normcore.
*Only joking, I know that I don’t have to wear them but now that I’ve dug them out, their appeal on the comfort front is obvious, even if aesthetically they leave a little to be desired.
**What I can’t decide is whether, way back when, when I bought these was I:
a) way ahead of the trend (I think not)
b) deeply uncool (more probably) and whether…
c) I am now as fickle as the next person who has bought into the trend (quite possibly)
d) would I wear them if they weren’t trendy now (probably not) and
e) should I just shut up? (Definitely)
And if all of that doesn’t demonstrate the fickle nature of fashion, nothing does!
And here’s another trend that has been written about recently – men in socks and sandals. What were they thinking? M&S schools socks and pink flowered sandals. Brave boy, that’s all I can say!
