They've been around a while now. They were horribly ugly when they were new and hot. They are still horribly ugly years later. I wish those shoe trends would die already!!

CROCS ARE SO UGLY, but hella comfortable.. I wear them around the house. My guilty pleasure?

Boyfriend blazers are my favorite! I am so obsessed with them. I have 4 and always want more. Harem pants are an offense to society.. they are so pointless. I hope they die.. fast..

Skinny vs. Boyfriend on Feb 02, 2010 @ 04:20 pm

Love:

Skinny jeans: More of a staple than a trend after being in style for so many years - let's hope for many more!

Don't love:

Boyfriend jeans: Since they haven't taken off yet, they likely never will

You have to have a very certain body type to pull off boyfriend jeans. Basically they are sweatpants size in jean form. What could possibly be nice looking about that? I totally agree. I hope they NEVER take off.. Skinnies I can definitely handle.

What body type? on Feb 03, 2010 @ 03:16 pm

I'm guessing you mean long legs? I'm curious because I really don't know what body type they are meant to look good on.

I've seen it a few times where I really like the look, but you need to know what you are doing.

We wrote an article about it here,
but I also really like the way that Over the Rainbow (great local Toronto boutique) styled them here (#2 on the graphic).

I truly believe you can pull off almost anything - with the exception of Crocs - as long as you exude confidence.

Love It or Leave It on May 28, 2010 @ 06:05 pm

Love It

Boyfriend Blazers - I love love love them.
Rompers- You have to find the right one, but when you do, you can't go wrong and they are great for summer.
Over the knee boots- As far as they are not leather (so you don't end up looking like a hooker). I love suede over the knee boots.
Maxi Dresses- I am obsessed with maxi dresses. I just think they give you that effortlessly chic look. They also look great on all body types.
Power Shoulder- In moderation, they look amazing. If overdone, they are a fashion fail !

Leave It
Harem Pants
- They are not flattering at all on anyone

... on all of it (great taste!) - except I think you can pull off over the knee boots that are leather as long as they don't have too high of a heel. I have some leather Rudsak over the knee boots that are mostly flat and I get compliments on them all the time :)

That was a typo... I meant as far as they are not too shiny (leather). And like Ali said if the heel is too high, they are a no no.
