Last night I tweeted something that seemed to strike a chord. After spending the evening catching up on blogs, I suddenly had an overwhelming urge to wear a nice skirt and some pointy shoes. Must’ve been all the hot pants, bralets and crucifix necklaces…
It’s probably my age, but I do sometimes wonder when stretch lycra became stylish. And huge 80s jumpers. And dungarees. It’s great to see subversive style come to the surface, but the blog world is saturated with ’90s revival’, and there’s a huge hole where simple, classic dressing used to be.
As bloggers, I know we’re supposed to be ‘fashion leaders’ and ‘trend setters’ and not have a secret fondness for zip-up fleeces. But I’m 27, goddamn it, and some days I just want to wear a nice skirt and some pointy shoes.
