Stirrup pants? Seriously?!

Friday night I needed to get LM a tuxedo shirt for our night on the town (I'll tell you about it later) so I headed to the mall. I went into XXI, which is a very trendy 15-27 year-oldish clothing store. I often stop in to fool myself into thinking I can wear their clothes, but in the the dressing room I always just look silly or fat.

Anyway, have we seriously regressed back to 1984 in that stirrup pants are back in style? I mean this isn't Wal-Mart... it is a very hip store where the "cool" kids shop! Stirrup pants? Are you kidding me?

BTW, I was the dork who got all excited that stirrup pants were back. Then I realized how fat my body by three babies would look in them. Now i cry.

Forever 21's M.O. is just to have a ton of mediocre clothes, whether they're trendy or not

How funny. I remember stirrup pants. I bet all the girls will think they're the greatest thing and never believe their moms when we tell them we wore those way back when...

Is It Bedtime Yet?

Actually you can go back to the 60's when we wore them with Go Go Boots!

The 80's fashion is every where here in my part of the world. I haven't seen stirrups yet, but the leggings are definitely IN here.
