Sometimes I think I am getting too old, and I’m starting to care less and less about having the latest and greatest trendy thing to be writing a fashion blog. And today is one of those days, as I stumbled across birkentstocks, complete with socks on the free people website (in my quest for some cute highly discounted sandals).
I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.
Birkenstocks in multiple colours, multiple styles, all with socks (I particularly loathe the upper right hand corner one with the fluffy socks, ripped jeans and leopard print jacket *shudders*).
I am not actually quite old enough to really have done the whole birkenstocks thing – it was really more my older sister’s generation. But there is no way in hell I’m doing it now. At least my sister might get her wish that when her daughters are teenagers (currently 6 & 9), flannel shirts will be back in fashion. I just don’t think I can do grunge… It’s so sloppy (yes, I am getting old)! Dr martens, I love. Don’t get me wrong. But the flannel and the ripped jeans and denim overalls and birkenstocks? I think it will be highly unlikely.
Have you seen anything lately that has just shaken you to your fashionista core?
