Well, I have been mulling this over in my head for the last few days and I have to say, I'm feeling less charitable now. I'm actually kind of annoyed. Why do women do this? Why do they give a flying fig about what other people think of them? Why are women so bloody sensitive? And why do women let others dictate how they feel about themselves?

For instance, I think Betsey Johnson dresses like a complete weirdo half the time, but there is no denying that she unapologetically owns her look. Although, I cannot imagine ever dressing like her, I am drawn to her image - she appears happy, content and above all, comfortable in her own skin. I'm guessing that she never lets any one's opinion impact her confidence or self-esteem. In every photo I see of Betsey Johnson, her greatest fashion accessory is her self-assurance.
So, let's all take a page from the book of Betsey. Remember ladies, you are strong, you are powerful, you are capable of making your own decisions. If you want to wear a crazy fashion trend or a not-so-crazy fashion trend, go for it. Maybe you'll look great, maybe you'll look stupid, maybe people will talk about you behind your back or maybe you'll get compliments. Regardless of the outcome, you'll likely live through the experience. So, why all the angst?
*In the end, I actually came around to seeing the positive aspects of the trend, but I still don`t think I`ll be adding it to my wardrobe repertoire.
