    I admire anyone who can walk in pin thin heels. I need a bit of chunk to mine. I also think that if you can't walk in them you shouldn't be wearing them. They're an accident waiting to happen.

    I know what you mean. Stillettos I cannot walk in, so I don't try.

    I have watched women at the mall that can't walk in heels and its pretty funny as they either take mincining little steps, or walk with a really awkward gate in those shoes. I really admire someone who can walk well in heels. I've never been able too.

    I actually do better with wedge heels. LOT more chunk to that kind of heel.

    Correct me if I am wrong (and it wouldn't be the first or last time), but weren't the skinny jeans and shirts usually connected with the gay culture, by the kids.

    No it was the andy warhol type. I never remember seeing skinny pants when I was going out. But then again it was the 70s for me and DISCO with leisure and jump suits was in full swing.. *SHUDDER* What was I thinking?

    HA! I laughed out loud and sputtered at that one gabriel. hee hee hee. I don't think any of our middle schoolers are making a statement with their skinny jeans (other than being cool).
    Count your blessings!

    I bet you looked spiffy in your leisure suit. I've seen the pictures of you in the 60's in your Dean Martin style dinner jacket, so I bet you could pull off the Disco era leisure suit.

    You know, fashion has SO many ranges of choice now, that I don't think that you can categorize one type of people by what they wear. I have both skinny jeans and flared legs. I wore the skinny jeans today, wore teh flared legs yesterday. It's just what mood I'm in, as to what I want to wear.

    OR what's clean and what's not.

    Jumpsuits were the WORST! As a woman, if you had to go to the bathroom, you had to completely undress in a jumpsuit. Who thought of those stupid things anyway?

    But I bet you had some of those really nice Disco era Qiana shirts. I know I did.

    I always laughed about the jumpsuits and how the really skinny girls would talk about how good they looked in them and how the heavier girls shouldn't wear them because their butts were too big. Honey, everyone's butt looked big in a jumpsuit!

    I went the "farmer bob overalls" route for my fashion statement. To school, to hack around in, to go skiing in. My parents bought the ski pants and were offended that I didn't want to wear them. I'd rather have comfort over style any day!
