I don't see the wild attraction of skulls. Everywhere I look I see skulls on scarves, skulls on shoes, sculls hanging around people's necks. ??? What's the attraction? I don't get it.

What fashion trend makes you go? :dontknow:
2/c Coarse hair med. density.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
Every day is a gift :flower:

    Car wash-type skirts or the skirts that are short in front but long in back. Yes, skulls too.

    Neon. Not my thing. The shirts that are short in the front and long in back. The Native American prints on clothes. Geometric shapes like that. Not cute, IMO.

    Animal print on some items. Not a big fan, especially in shoes, pants or an entire dress. I can have a leopard or zebra printed scarf, though.

    The moustache accessories and the black and white horizontal stripe trousers!

    The shirts that are short in the front and long in back.

    This, and skirts/dresses with asymmetric hems. I can't tell you how many times I've been drawn to a dress from a few feet away and then it was totally blown for me because of this trend.

    I got as far as trying one on the other day because I loved the print so much, but I just couldn't get past the hem style in the end.

    ...It will probably grow on me once it's on the way out.

    I do think this is kind of cute :lol:

    It's way past time for the mullet dress/skirt to die. HATE THEM! I don't mind it in some shirts. I can remember those shirts being in stores in the 90's. One of my friends had a cute long sleeved one. It was simple, made from a cotton blend, and looked good with jeans and boots on a cool-ish fall day. The skirt or dress always looks hideous.

    I do think the skull trend has gone a bit over board. I don't hate it. I don't own anything with skulls either. In my late teens, I used to do small braids in my hair and put skull, metal, jewel toned, and other beads that looked like bones on the braids. My friends called it my Perry Ferrell hair. That was as skull crazy as I got, but when you find dress blouses with a skull print... It's time to stop.

    I wish death on the fake hair/fake tan look/fake dirty barbie look. And anything that looks like it belongs on Snookie. That includes wearing jogging pants with something written across your ass in public. Idk why that bugs me, but it does. At home, fine.

    Other than that, I'm good. I find many things cute, in moderation.

    Some of the shirts that are shorter in the front and longer in the back end up looking like the shirt has a butt flap. I've taken to calling them "butt flap shirts" and when I'm shopping I'm like, "oh cute, but ugh, butt flap!"

    When the pockets are longer than the shorts.

    And another fashion disaster are those cloven hoof heels that look like camel toe (but I think there is a thread about this somewhere on nc.com - can't find it right now though).

    And while I'm ranting (ha ha) a few spikes on your face - OK. If your face is covered with studs and spikes so it looks like a bed of nails - what is wrong with you?

    Ita. Also I never got the pointy toe shoes. Most women look like elves. Also skinny jeans. Most people look horrible in them, including skinny people

    Also, the need for all heels to now be platform stripper shoes. Really not okay in the workplace (IMO, of course) - a small platform, a hidden platform, but the "I look like I bought these at a 'special' store" - not okay.

    (I do think that such shoes may have an appropriate place, say, at home - but not in public)

    Tho I almost never wear really trendy things, I like most things, at least to a point.
    But the one thing I have never liked and just plain can't stand - the super high platform shoes that look like they belong on Frankenstein or member of KISS. Actually I guess I have a dislike for most trendy shoes of all kinds. I greatly dislike super high wedges. They make people walk stupidly. And mostly look ridiculous. I don't like crocs or uggs or those dumb looking shoes with toes in them. And don't get me started on boots with peep toes.
    I've never liked alot of pattern in clothes so the ever present horizontal stripes kind of irk me.

    PS I LOVE skulls. : )

    Shorts with longer pockets, crocs, and peep toes boots! Can't stand them. I love platforms and wedges because they don't hurt my tricky feet like regular heels so I can't agree there, but those are some good ones.

    Allow me to add boots with sweat pants. Why, Gawd? Why? That's like my mom throwing on loafers with hers. Drives me batty.

    I like hi-low skirts and tops. I'm a big fan of flowy-type clothing.

    Excessive tattoos, piercings, animal print, skulls...not my thing, but people can do what they want. I find the fake-tan-cheeto look amusing (yes, I am laughing inside at you).
  • inheritedcurlsinheritedcurls Posts: 2,954Registered Users
    I love hi/low dresses and skirts...shirts not so much.

    I can't stand crocs...I only have a pair of croc flip flops because my MIL bought them..I mow in them. I can't stand wearing the pants below your butt fad. I keep thinking this will fade...yet I still see it...how can you even walk with your pants that low?

    One of my former co workers was tanning obsessed. She laid out in the sun, but added iodine to baby oil. She looked orange and, well, exactly like Snookie.

    ImageUploadedByCurlTalk1371580873.303005.jpg

    The puzzling thing is, one can find some sunless tanners that are not orange, and give a more natural look, if you go easy on them. I know some can't tan, and want a glow. That's fine, but looking like you rolled around in cheeto dust is something else.'

    I don't get furry boots. Fur lined boots I understand. But I don't get the appeal of the ones that look like part of a muppet costume.

    non-prescription eye glasses. Glasses are a pain, why would you deal with that if you didn't want to? It's mind boggling to me. but doubly so the oversized ones that cover up half their face. I saw some the other day, that were practically touching her lips. It left me contemplating if she could smile without getting her lenses dirty.

    Cympreni, How about furry purses? With the fur on the outside? Gee, we wouldn't want our purses to be chilly, would we? Might catch cold!

    I dont like the shirts/dresses with one sleeve and one strap.. they're cute for the right age range and occasion - I think young people out clubbing etc. I've seen teachers wear them to school, and I dont think they look nice on young girls - its too sexy- and not appropriate unless you are doing something where it is appropriate to be sexy.

    I also don't like bags/purses with the brand name splattered all over the fabric. To me it is just advertising that you've got an expensive purse Who cares other than the people that want to steal your purse??
    3A/2C fine, normal porosity & elasticity, medium high density

    Current products:
    YTCucs Color Protection Low poo
    GVP Conditioning Balm
    Random gels - not sure which ones I like, if any at this point!


    HG Summer Routine:
    poo - TMW Hydrate
    RO & LI - Darcy's Pumpkin Seed
    Leave in Products: CHSCK & LALMG

    Currently trying to figure out a winter routine and transition to a less harsh "poo" for summer.

    I am not a fan of sweatpants beyond sleeping, working out, or wearing after surgery because they're comfy and loose. Know what makes even less sense? Sweatpants with words written across the butt. Juicy? Only if you have diarrhea and are on a Pepto commerical. Princess? You really want to be known as Princess Booty??

    That's what I'm screaming! When VS first started the Pink line one of my friends got me a pair of sweatpants as a gift. They are kind of like the last pic I posted except dark turquoise and they have pink written in a light and bright green on the butt. I never wore them anywhere but around the house. Every time I put them on my dad would say, "Come here! What in the sam hell is that? You got something all over the back of your britches". Lol He thought I had sat in something.

    I like animal print most of the time, in fact I'm wearing an animal print top right now:
