    Absolutely Hideous!

    I just finished “fixing” a top I'd bought only because it had “potential”. Everything was normal about it except for the sleeves, which looked as though they had been sewn in upside down. With some slicing and dicing I managed to make the sleeves look as they should...

    That moment when you put something on

    that makes you feel more powerful, more seductive, more engaging... then you look back at that picture of yourself years later and slightly cringe, thinking 'What the ****?'. That's what fashion's about for me. Living in the moment.

    I've never been one to believe in following the

    latest fashion trends. They change so quickly, that even if I wanted to follow them, I'd never be able to keep up. Besides, a pair of jeans, for example, that cost almost $100.00 won't last any longer than a $20.00 pair of jeans, something I learned early on when some of my...

    I never have and never will follow fashion

    trends. I am the same way for my children as well. I always wear appropriate clothing that a lady would wear and not a lady of the evening would wear.

    In Back to the Future II,

    in 2015, we are all supposed to wear our pants inside out because it is the 'look.' What ever happened to that fashion?

    I follow only one "Fashion Trend.

    " What I like to wear and feel comfortable wearing is my trend. And it should be for everyone. If we all dress the same, there is no individuality. I don't shop at popular stores or wear trendy things just because I want to "fit in." I go wherever I want to shop, buy whatever I...

    I truely believe that the high waist pants,

    shorts, and skirts are just for girls to be able to show a lot of leg without worrying about having a muffin top. I don't like them or understand how to wear a lot of things that are in stores right now. I don't take fashion risks I just throw on a pair of jeans and a tee shirt...

    I don't understand fashion.

    ... All I need is sweat pants and t-shirts and I'll be just fine.

    Mainly because I'm clueless

    when it comes to fashion... I'll stick to wearing all black; it never goes out of style.

    Fashion trends are for people

    that can't dress or don't know how to most of them are just followers. I like dressing how I dress and doing my own thing fashion trends are just something someone made up for money society is so sad you don't need other people telling you how to dress.

    I've never really been into all the new fashion

    trends. I'm definitely the type of girl who'd rather wear sweats and a t shirt for the rest of my life than any expensive fashionable wear. I dress for comfort and luckily sometimes it looks cute.

    I Honestly Don't Care

    I have a best friend who is always getting on my case about fashion. Everything in my drawers, she takes out and decides whether or not it's fashionable. But in my opinion, I couldn't care less. Why is fashion important? I think everyone should wear clothing they feel comfortable...

    Well. If like me you are square shaped.

    You learn fairly early on that fashion tends toward the tall and skinny. So. You make the best of what you have.

    I dress how I like! :P When others wear

    t-shirts, I wear button-downs in all kinds of patterns! I wear brogues on my feet, and a frock coat on my back (I like the way they swoosh). :D

    My style is more of a Dag-punk/Tourist Kei

    crossover, with a flair for function over aesthetic.

    At times most of us don't feel like walking

    with the crowd. So I guess there's nothing wrong in following our own common style patterns and step out in public or Wearing sweatpant, sneakers with one of our favourite tops to airport would not be a bad idea either!

    Never Have

    I don't even know what's "in." I've never followed trends, i just wear whatever i have. When i do go shopping for clothes, i usually get a pair of jeans, and then get a couple band t-shirts. Yeah, i'm pretty simple. I'm not into shorts or skirts. Not into sandals or heels. I'm...

    I have never been someone

    who was even remotely interested in fashion. I value comfort more than anything else. Last year I spent a lot of money getting myself a genuine, old fashioned duffel coat and someone saw I was getting one too many compliments on it, so when the people complimenting the coat...

    I hate following trends!

    !! Why try to follow everybody else and be like them? I just dress like myself and that's all. I express my feelings through my fashion choices. Everyday I wear black. Black is a must for me and I always add a splash of color. Like today for example I dresses in black stockings...

    Fashion is a personal thing

    and has evolved over time. Many make up rules then force others to follow those ideas. Some even put words in God's mouth by saying it's of God to dress a certain way. We are brought into the world without clothes. It is human judgment that then clothes us and tries to define...

    My Fashion Story

    I don't follow all the lasted fashion trends.  For one thing I am older and realize the waste of money involved.  Styles etc. seem to change from season to season.  Even the latest colors worn keep changing. I, personally, like wearing the more classic clothes that are in...

    I love 80s fashion but people think

    that is bad because the fashion at the time was "cheesy." I find it ironic that modern day trends are recycling 80's fashion. Hmm.

    Lame

    Acting like a sheep it is. Trying to be one of the typical cool...They make up something and you gotta follow that?... Most of those are meaningless fashion trends or just old thing in a new way...Just wearing simple stuff is my thing.

    Some days that means wearing nothing at all! There are times when I simply cannot tolerate having to wear clothing, so I'll hang about at home wearing nothing but a smile :) The goddess provided me with my skin, so I will show it whenever I feel like it. Other times, I'll be...

    The reason I try not to do this is

    because in middle school all of the mean kids wore plain clothes with brand names. They reminded me of nascar drivers and acted like they were better than anyone else. Because of this, I try to not wear visible brand names on my clothes. I want to stand out for patterns and...
