I had a gut-level response. It was pretty strong. It said: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO."
I found out through the lovely Monique, who blogs at Curves and Chaos. She's a smart fashionista, and she makes some brave and bold choices I admire. And she's on board for this trend!

Monique, I love you, but I just don't think I can muster it for this one. The last time distress-washed denim came around, I was... shall we say... not yet stylish enough. I have photo proof but I didn't have a chance to dig it up and scan it. Look forward to future pics of the silliest I've ever looked.
And what is next? Surf pants?

VisualNews has a very fun article, called "Who Shot the Couch," with other bad-choice fashion photos including the biggest collar ever, and Flame-resistant sleepwear for the whole family. I highly recommend you check it out.
And who knows... there's probably someone out there who thinks that what I wore on the Fourth of July was BAD-CHOICE Fashion Monday. They say plus-sized girls shouldn't wear stripes...

But me, I like stripes. And I'm no fashion police. If you dig of the acid-wash (or the couch-fabric, for that matter) you have free rein! There are those out there who say heels are the only way to go, and I'm a fashion victim in my flats. As Audra commented here recently, there's a difference between fashion and style. To each their own... that's style. I may not be someone who follows every fashion trend, but I think I've found a way to express myself through my clothes. Or at least, I'm having fun trying. And isn't that the point?
How about you? Fashion or style? Acid-wash jeans?
It looks to be a beautiful weekend. I'm hoping to kick the cabin fever to the curb... so tomorrow we're off to the Eat Real Fest, followed by a visit with some friends. We do, however, plan to stay away from the 405 in Los Angeles. Hope you locals avoid Carmageddon, too! I'll be back with more on Monday, and 'til then, take care of you!
