You will be craving bigass platform wedges and baggy Boyfriend Jackets. Or else.
Acne Fall 09
Awright! I’m way ahead of the game: I crave bigass platforms on a daily basis.
Shouldn’t crutches also be in style with shoes like that?
I like it but is it Annie Hall smashes into 70s David Bowie?
I refuse to go near a “boyfriend jacket”. One rule of thumb I follow is that if you were there for the trend the first time around, you should NOT go there again. My advice to all of you in this category- Stay strong!!!
As you so aptly noted a year or so ago when this trend was *just* beginning to rear its head, even our mothers twisted their ankles on bigass platform wedges!
I will, however, admit to wearing my hair just like the model on the left. I call it “the biscuit” or “hangover hair,” depending on the occassion.
I love me some big ass platforms!
I’m with Andrea. I’m pretty sure that the massive case of hives I got was caused by a reaction to ALL of horrible 80’s trends popping up again. Well, I’m putting my foot down and telling the “fashion” industry to stick it!!! Jackets with shoulder pads, neon colors, etc will not get me in to the stores this time. Hey, maybe I’ll be able to save a bit of money since there’s nothing to buy.
…Uhmm…I kinda like the platforms though….What???!!!
Pads and neons-no!
Any walkable heels-yes!
(any shoe that doesn’t make you a cripple is OK, considering that some girls can’t even walk in flats)
I’ll bravely add-waist jeans (not high, just natural)-yes!
Oh, and for the record – I ADORE giant clunky platforms, twisted ankles and all. Sigh!
I thought we were all going to crave Wendy Brandes jewelry! Shit! When is my season going to come?
Yeah, back when I was 14, I had the “Dad Jacket” which was actually my dad’s jacket AND vintage AND totally not in style at the time. I’ve always been either 25 years behind or ahead of the times…
And Deni, your Bowie comment makes me want to cry. His Highness’s image should not be referenced in vain.
the shoes are stupid but i love everything else, esp. the colors.
I’d bang her….
Sal – I craved them bigtime in the 70s.
Honeypants – Great marketing idea!
Deni – Very much so.
andrea – I insisted on wearing a horrible boyfriend jacket when I was 12. Never again!
Ann – Oh my, your hair must make a wonderful biscuit.
Queen Michelle – I believe we have that in your file.
HelOnWHeels – Yeah, they do look appealing. Not to wear, though.
dust – YES on the jeans. I like them too.
Ann – Tell Mr. Ann to get you some!
WendyB – We DO crave your jewelry, are you kidding?!?
Honeypants – Deni would never knowingly hurt you.
annemarie – Okay, well, get your credit card ready!
Bob – Good to know.
I love this. I already have my Marni platforms which are huge and beautiful and as far as the boyfriend jacket goes . . . thank god for Mum’s closet. We’ve never seen eye to eye on fashion . . . until now. She gave me a jacket this winter which looks identical to the Acne one. I am a happy camper!
Aja- Have you posted a pic of your giant Marni’s??
Ann: What kind of biscuit?
Meh. I prefer my jackets fitted.
I was so into wearing my ‘boyfriend’ blazer at the same time in my life that I was completely enamoured with 21 Jumpstreet and Heathers.
I look forward to reliving this time. Life was splendid then.
Sadly I wore it with cut off, rolled up guess jeans that I also loved.
Right now I’m just craving lemonade and ice cream sandwiches.
yesss, im trying to get those black boots!
