From The Old Bill

Dear PeaceBang,

Thank you for your link to unfortunate televangelist fashion choices, but I am writing to you with more a more sinister problem: the return of the 80's in fashion world. Today I found myself on Robson Street, our version of Rodeo Drive, and I was accosted by black leggings, low-slung wide belts, and unsightly balck lace tights. Is Cindy Lauper in the house? Since you remember the "New Zoo Review" I imagine that you have already "done" the 80s (I myself thoroughly embraced the Madonna look from the Lucky Star video, fingerless white lace gloves and all). How do you feel about this unsavory resurgance and what do we do as quasi-fashion conscious women in ministry?

Dear Michelle, I am most afraid of the 80's resurgence. I tried on a shapeless smocky top at Lord & Taylor the other day and upon seeing myself in the mirror said, "Oh God, I already DID this, and it was ugly THEN."
I firmly believe that the way to get through this awful time is to stick with sane garments, stay with what flatters, do include a pop of 80's whimsy in accessories where they're not ridiculous, and AVOID LEGGINGS AT ALL COSTS.

The skinny jeans, leggings thing is everywhere. It looks fine on 14 year old, 90-pound girls (sometimes), but this does not work for hardly anyone else. I was reading Vogue and Glamour on the plane last weekend and it was just page and after page of celebrities donning these looks. Apparently we have Kate Moss to blame for bringing back the 80s. Thanks, Kate! You trendsetter, you!

Blech! Let's hope this is over by next summer!
