Trends I am NOT down with

Faithful readers of Bells On might remember my past rants against various Ugg-ly trends, like tiered skirts, which thankfully are so over now. (Note to my readers in the midwest - tiered skirts are so over now.) And of course my feelings about Crocs are well known.

But I have to say for the record that I am just not down with this:

No, not bubble skirts. Although god knows those are excellent if you wish to appear as though you are a recent immigrant from a former Soviet bloc country.

No, I'm talking about ankle boots with skirts.

Oh, sure, it looks cute if you're six foot tall and gorgeous, but let me tell you gals, if you are like me and only 5'9" and medium hot for your age, the whole ankle boots with a skirt thing makes you look like you're auditioning to be a Clydesdale on one of those annoying Budweiser Superbowl commercials.

Unless you like the training pants look.

Great. There goes my Xmas present for you. Thanks. Thanks a whole hell of a fucking lot.

I have those shoes in black leather.

I would never consider wearing them with anything other than long pants.

She might as well be wearing Crocs. Same effect.

Mixednut: I DO like the training pants look. But not with ankle boots.

Grant: Well, it's the thought that counts. And you clearly think I'm a major fashion victim.

Alana: That's because your parents raised you up right.

Kristi: I think Crocs might actually make your feet sweat less, though.

You're right, that bubble skirt would look a LOT better with Uggs. Preferably in pink. Or maybe light blue.
