Don’t get me wrong, I was super pumped when Marion announced this month’s “Trend of the Month” challenge was lace. I LOVE lace. I love this dress. I wear it a lot.

Well, not so much anymore.

I’ll be honest, it was NOT easy to zip up, but hey, I made it work. But, I can guarantee it won’t be worn again for at least, uhhh, five more months. At least.

Anywho.

I love lace, but I am a little shocked to see that it’s considered a “trend” right now. Like, I really would love to know the process of how “trends” are decided upon. Because, in my book, lace never left.

Lace has always been awesome. But I guess that means that right now it’s just more awesome?

I love fashion (clearly), but I often am dumfounded when I find out about something “coming back into style” or a new “trend” and I’m all over here like, “uhhh I never stopped wearing that.

So, then I start to think, “Wait a tick, have I been “uncool” this whole time and I didn’t know it?”

For example, apparently “arm parties” are no longer cool. Lame. I still like me a good arm party and I will wear one if I want to.

Also, apparently bootcut or flare jeans may be making a come back. Wait, they LEFT? I had no idea.

And this whole “black and white” trend. I mean, black and white seem like colors that never went away to me. I could be wrong, but I didn’t think black and white was ever an “uncool” color scheme to wear. Am I wrong?

I think it’s all just a huge marketing ploy by the fashion industry. And honestly, I’m okay with it. But I wish they’d stop trying to make “fetch” happen, so to speak.

Tell me. What do you think about “TRENDS“? Are there any trends that surprise you? Or trends that you think never went out of style? What about trends you aren’t a fan of?

Linking up today with Marionberry Style, The Pleated Poppy, Wardrobe Wednesday, and Random Wednesday with Shanna.
