If the old adage ‘never say never’ in fashion… why the heck are people always saying never, never and NEVER. They even add in things like ‘not in a million years.’ ‘wouldn’t be caught dead.’ or ‘wouldn’t touch it with a ten-foot pole.’
It’s madness… even I do it. Scoff at one thing one day, only to cuddle it the next. It’s a dysfunctional relationship, if fashion were a person, it’d have to be the most ridiculously co-dependent doormat ever. I mean it’s not like a pair of shoes is going to tell you to ‘fuck off’ because the way you made fun of them at a party last week. No, the pair of shoes will go on your feet, maybe you give you a blister for being an ass.
“Never is the next new thing”

I’ve said, I’m not going back to American Apparel, and I did. They didn’t block me at the door, telling me I couldn’t come in after I sneered at their ridiculous advertising. I said I was too old to wear things like jumpsuits (but have worn them over and over). I’ve said millions of times, I couldn’t do the hippie 70′s thing (which includes clogs) and I got clogs. I’ve also said I’d never wear this popcorn sweater again..that it was going to the incinerator after seeing a particularly unflattering picture of me wearing it.
And here it is. I did go to American Apparel (granted for my husband) and I did see this chambray jumpsuit and I love it. It’s comfortable and sassy. I did buy the Miu Miu clogs, and wore them. And the popcorn sweater, I still wear it. So why do I say never? Beats the heck out of me…
