    The last two shirts I bought without trying them on, had really long sleeves. At first I thought it was just a factory mistake, but then I went to the company's website, and saw that they were designed that way. I just rolled them up, because I like them, but this is a strange fad.

    I really hate that look. Plus it seems that everyone wears them without buttoning the cuffs. Tacky.

    Lotuslander: Nice photo Those are called bell cuffs I believe, when they're on women's shirts. I've never seen then on any guys though.

    Everyone: Yes, those garden shoes. They have a trade name though, but I can't remember it. I would never wear them to work or out for dinner. They look very casual and would be good at home or getting groceries. But I saw a women wear them on the Avenue with a skirt and they looked horrible. They were the bright orange and didn't go with anything she had on. Not flattering.

    I do think that some people can carry them off without a problem, but you need to consider what you're doing and where you're going. I'm sure that now I've said that, if I try them on, I'll probably like them. But I would want a black or navy or something darker.

    They're called crocs. The first time I saw them was in Missouri over a year ago. They hit California this summer.

    I said this earlier, but I have 9 pairs of Crocs. Silly? Yes. But it's fun. I wear them to work and change colors depending on what color of scrubs I'm wearing. I see them all the time, they are very popular among nurses for the comfort factor. I also wear them out running errands, doing yard work, restaurants and I have even worn them to church (I go to the contemporary service and everyone dresses casually). A couple of times I have forgotten my workout shoes and have done my Curves workout in Crocs. They don't slip at all and it was fine. I can't say enough about how comfortable they are, plus you can throw them in the sink and scrub them down when they get dirty. I bought my first pair on my way home from a funeral. My heels were killing me and when I got them I promptly sat down, took off the heels and put the Crocs on, so I was walking through the mall in a black dress and baby blue Crocs. I know it looked stupid, but when your feet hurt that bad you don't care.

    I owned a pair of clogs about 13 years ago, wouldn't dare brandish them in this day and age. Hell, what was i thinking then? I also used to wear them with socks. hey, i was 9.

    You know what trend I wish would go away? Women who wear low rise jeans and tight tops when they don't have the body for it. Where I work, I see more fat hanging over pants and bulging out from under shirts - not to mention plumber butt - on women of all ages. How can you not notice this when you look in the mirror? Just because you can button a pair of pants doesn't mean they fit. I'm the last person to judge someone about their weight but I'm sorry, if you're a size 22, you can't wear the exact same styles as a size 4.

    I have a white dress shirt that I wear with the cuffs unbuttoned. It's cute

    Those cuffs look silly.

    I dont know if this has already been discussed but I can tell my age is starting to show because I cannot stand the new long'ish' hairstyles on 'the kids' these days. My 12 year old likes his hair unkempt and in his eyes and I thought it was just him but I'm seeing a real comeback on the 70's hairdo, kind of wavy, kind of long..bleh.

    I'll take a squared away clean cut any day.

    Amen...I even see smaller women with this problem as I think "just because you're a 6 doesn't mean you don't need to firm up that tire puffing over your pants!"
