Depression Era Fashion

I think style right now must be influenced by the crappy economy and the dour state of every one's mood. I mean this is fall. The time for sexy secretary. Heels. Pencil Skirts. Sharp fitted jackets. But what is popular now? Leggings. Long Sweaters. Boots without heels. Dresses with pockets. I mean, it is a mother's dream wardrobe. Stuff that a few years ago might put you on the worst dressed list.

I am in fashion heaven and hell. I really can't believe that these outfits are totally acceptable right now and yet, how lucky am I that these outfits are totally in right now?

LOL, so true.

So true! Glad flats are back, though. I'm all about comfort these days.

I am right there with you, practically living in leggings and flats and oversized tunics. It is a little depressing. But, every now and then, I sneak in a pair of high-heeled booties to mix it up. Do I regret it at the end of the day when the dogs are barking? Yes. Do I feel a little more fabulous while I wear them? Oh, hell yeah!
