My friend and frequent guest blogger, TB sent me the above picture and asked me what I thought. I think that:
Unless you are a) Aladdin b) MC Hammer c) A Pakistani who lost their kameze d) Trying to keep it real with your baggy pants – you have no business wearing harem pants. Why wear something that looks like a potato bag? It’s as if someone took a skirt, got lazy and then decided to just sew half-way down. Yeah, right. BCBG. I’m not paying $100 plus dollars for something I could make myself. If it isn’t tailored, i.e. flattering, I’m not going anywhere near it.
But why do girls keep wearing it? Comfort, I guess. Kind of why Kimora Lee’s Baby Phat velour sweats are so popular among my pals. (Trashy, but oh so stretchy.) But seriously, since when did people really follow fashion trends. I keep seeing Philly girls walking down Walnut Street wearing these things? Why? They are hideous. U-G-L-Y. Ugh, that’s one thing I’m not adding to my summer fashion list.
