I thought I had made a sober choice–black suede, a bit of fringe. Then I ran into one of the
denizens of my favorite doggie park (an Edie Beale type, as in the star of the “Grey Gardens” documentary, who took pride in wearing her skirt as a turban or a scarf). She took one look at my bag–she notices everything–and said. “Hey, that looks like something I would wear!”
You know the old saying, that if you wore it the first time it was popular, you really shouldn’t wear it at your current age? Was I delusional to think fringe was for more than 18-year-olds? Should I give it up?
What about you? Are there things you love that you think you’re just going to have to give up? Are there certain looks or pieces of clothing that have passed their expiration date–or yours?
