Ok, I really need some help here. One of the multiple intelligences in which I definitely fall into the special needs category is fashion. I don't get it (as many of you who know me in person probably realize). My coping strategies include 1) not caring and 2) buying clothes as infrequently as possible. But even I am getting sick of my limited wardrobe these days, and therefore tried to buy some clothes today. However, shopping with a feisty 16 month old
does not lend itself to
sucks, even when you have twice as many adults as toddler(s), so I just hurled clothes into the cart at 60 MPH and tried them on when I got home.
I purchased three different pairs of pants, one of which was marked cropped. I hate cropped pants and sleeves, but I thought I would give that one pair a try because it might be dressier than shorts for those occasions where it's too hot to wear pants. However, all
of them end somewhere rather south of my knee but also north of my ankle. And yet, none of them are what I envisioned as cropped. In fourth grade, these high-waters would have gotten me teased mercilessly.
So, my questions for you:
Are pants like these in now?
Will they be out next week making me look like the fashion-impaired dork I am?
Is there some rule about seasons for cropped pants? Will the fashion police arrest me if I wear them in September? How about December, what with global warming and all?
What the hell kind of shoes do I wear with them? Do I wear socks?
Should I just chuck it all and return the lot?
My inner fourth grader, who was
teased all year about various clothing choices, thanks you very much in advance for any help you can provide.
