Monday Teeny Poll

By Glinda

Sex and the City 80's outfits

It’s Monday.  I’m sorry, it will be over soon.

Last week I wanted to know how you felt about Santa Clara and their proposed ban on McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys within city boundaries.  A full sixty-four percent of you felt it was ridiculous, and only nineteen percent were glad someone was at least trying to do something, no matter how “symbolic.”   And somehow, almost ten percent of you were on the fence.  As for me, I think it is ridiculous, and yet the same time admire them for trying to stand for what they believe in, even though I think it is misguided.  As I’ve stated before, the factors that go into childhood obesity aren’t going to be fixed by taking away toys.

Today, I’m in a fashion-y sort of mood.  I have no idea why, but this is my blog and you’re just going to have to go with me.

    It really depends on the trend. I think that there are a lot of trends out there that can be modified somewhat for a more mature woman.

    For example, let’s look at when neon made a resurgence. I wore that (boy, did I ever wear it), the first time around, in the 1980’s. So when it came back, I would have never considered wearing it full-tilt. But a peek of a neon-pink cami under a gray cashmere sweater? Or an acid-green clutch to liven up a neutral ensemble? Sure, why not?

    And then there are some things that never should have been trends in the first place. I sure hope she is being paid a lot of money to look that foolish.

    If you wore the lace top, lace socks, spandex and headband the first time around (Carrie – I am talking to you) I think you can wear it again the second time but in serious moderation. A lace top with tailored slacks? Sure! Leggings with a beautiful wrap dress? No problem. Full on the 80s barfed on Madonna??? It just looks like a costume.
