what was i thinking?

bowlcutyou know those moments you have when you look at old pictures of yourself and you see what you were wearing or what kind of haircut you had, and you think, “what was i thinking?!?!”

of course.  i’m sure we’ve all had those moments.  especially those awkward pre-teen or adolescent years.  i’ve always wondered about this.  how can something that we think is so cool and trendy be the source of all embarassment and joke-making later on in life?  or, the bigger question is, will there ever be a time when fashion will just kind of level out and there will be no more embarassment?

does fashion have ingrained in it a level of maturity?  i would say no.  there’s plenty of mature people who fell into the “traps” of big hair, neon leggings, slap bracelets, and bowl cuts.  it’s gotta be something society related.  society says a trend is hot, so people flock towards that trend.  i was thinking about this when i was buying clothes one day.  i was beginning to think the color brown was cool, but then i realized it was probably because i’d been seeing it around a lot.  who decided brown was the new “in” color?  i wonder if there’s a panel of fashion consultants that are like, “you know what?  i think brown is gonna be the new color.”

i personally think that fashion can reach a level of “classic-ness” where we can look back and not be so ashamed at what we were wearing.  i look at pictures of how people dress and look in the past couple years and i don’t laugh as hard as i do when i look at pictures of them in younger years.  maybe it’s because i’m still living in this time period, but i’d like to think that fashion now has a sense of timelessness to it.  but what do i know?  we’ll just have to see in a couple years.
