OK – right. This may or may not be a rant, I can’t quite work it out yet. But it has started that way in my head. We are coming into summer – now in SF this is non-existent, but this year for my birthday I will have 10 glorious days (3 in Austin/ 7 in Mexico) where I will need summer attire..
My first thoughts? Cut offs. They have been cool since circa 2003, I had a pair. However, I am pretty tired of these guides to summer-wear, where it is only cut offs and over sized singlets (tank tops) – fucking……hey.
Skinny girls, you think you can fashion out by cutting up some shorts and donning an over sized tank. Or perhaps cutting careful holes in a vintage t, to make it look more vintage. Want a prize for being (not that) original? Want a prize for who can spend the least on their clothes? Why not work on fashion’ing out on clothes that will work on the fatties too…
It could be that I am not actually bitter at you for suggesting the cut offs – but bitter at the cut offs for not working with my legs. When I think about this though, I feel like cut offs were high on the fashion rotation as of 2007 until last year (peaked, now – finished). This year.. Who knows – Alexa Chung probably needs to wear it, and we all follow.
Anyway – I just found this fashion’esque blog and it annoyed me greatly (not posting here, because I don’t like to hate on people – openly). Don’t vintage your pics, suggest cut offs and decide you are the fucking oracle of all that is sassy. You are a size 2, with legs for days. That wasn’t that difficult.
