Fashion Peeve #4: The Future is Yesterday

Here in Nebraska we are still in the tight clutches of winter. Yet last week when I was out shopping I saw spring clothing boldly displayed, and all the winter stuff was crowded onto a few clearance racks. I can understand that. Even though we are probably at least a month away from being able to wear any of the new styles, I can see that it's fun and interesting to plan ahead. Plus, it's a welcome distraction from the unending snow and ice and cold temperatures.

BUT--and here's my latest peeve-- now I'm seeing fashion forecasting for NEXT FALL! Come on. I'm not ready to think that far ahead. I still have to plan what I'm going to wear this coming summer!

Related to that is this: Fashion forecasting is a game, not biblical prophecy.

At least, that's what I've decided. People who love and know a lot about fashion try to guess what the new trends will be in the next couple or three seasons. Sometimes they are right, but just as often they are wrong. Sometimes they were right for only a brief moment. I saw fashions last spring that only lasted long enough for the first run to get bought, and then the trend was gone again. If I had jumped, I would have only had time to wear my cutting edge whatsit once before it would have been So Last Week.

I am not in any danger of buying things that go out of style--they start out that way. :)

Hi!! It's Lulu! Remember me? I've somehow found my way back to the blogging world after being kidnapped by Facebook for an entire YEAR! Oh, how I've missed my blog...and you! How have you been? I guess I should read up on a few past posts to find out! Please tell me how Kelly is doing since I can no longer remember the sign-on to her blog.

As far as fashion goes, I wouldn't be able to tell you what's out and what's in. I just buy whatever fits properly from the clearance rack! Okay, it has to has some sort of fashion sense, but Lulu is not too picky.

This is why I prefer classic over trendy anyday.
