Okay, you win. You've ignored my missives [*,*] on the fashion crime that is the wearing of badly-fitting Ugg boots. Go ahead and shuffle around in those sheepskin monstrosities - I won't complain any longer.

But for heaven's sake, lay off the gladiator sandals. They looked silly on Russell Crowe, and they look silly on you, especially the sparkly ones ([livejournal.com profile] swisstone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that the diamantarius is a proper class of gladiator).

No love,

Me

Admittedly the sparkly ones are indeed awful, but overall should we be concentrating on these when there are still plenty of puffball-inspired skirts being worn openly? I mean, honestly . . . the things you see when you don't have your gun.

You can get jeggings for babies. I'm so tempted ...

On babies they would almost certainly be cute.

On grown ups a) you have to have the right legs to carry them off and b) good grief, don't you miss pockets???

I had to look 'jeggings' up. I feel old.

Now, if anyone would care to explain to me what a 'popular beat combo' is, I'd be much obliged.

So did I. And this despite the fact that P owns some of the things.

I'm with you on the Uggs, but gladiator sandals are fab!

What on earth has happened to undergrads? It used to be all Converse and baggy jumpers in the old days.

The entire faculty is a cross between Goodbye Mr Chips and a Cure tribute band.

I'm sure some of us have photographic evidence somewhere... *&)

1. Tie-dye
2. Velvet jackets
3. Boots with Cuban heels

However, I don't recall many other people wearing them. My problem with Uggs and gladiator sandals is the sheer uniformity; they're effectively a uniform here.

Seems somewhat cliché-student, but maybe not actually common outside bad sitcoms.

It's more goddamned-hippy territory, to be honest.

You know, I have no idea where my damn tie-dye T-shirt has got to.

Students passing the building at lunchtime ... usually bunch of scruffy layabouts scuffing their feet ... but one of the women was wearing fairly short denim shorts (not hot pants, but not baggy half-way to the knees either), with opaque black stockings that stopped about five inches from the bottom of the shorts and suspenders that went up from the top of the stockings inside the legs of the shorts ... *should* have been damn sexy to my mind, but somehow didn't work at all ... just looked like shorts with opaque tights with large holes in them ... and not in a sexy way!
