Marla's Gimme a Minute

I Only Need 60 Seconds!

Fads and Fashion

Hi I’m Marla. Gimme a Minute. I want to talk to you about fads and fashion. And what’s in or out of style.

I want to..but I can’t..because by the time the words come out of my mouth to tell you what’s in…it’s out….

Baggy jeans, tight jeans, floppy sweatshirts, skinny t-shirts. Cross your heart, lace, bras on the outside, racerback with tank tops, …

Flats, heels, wheelies, skater shoes, high tops, short boots, go go boots, flip flops, barefoot. In the snow?…

Tye dye, plaid, paisley, polka dot…. Black jeans, blue jeans, acid washed jeans….no scratch that. ..

I used to try to wear “cool” and “in” clothes. I certainly don’t want to be seen in public with something people will photograph and refer to as a “fashion don’t.”…

If you’re a woman and your first name is Oprah, it doesn’t matter what you wear or what size you are, it only matters how talented your air brusher is.

If your last name is GaGa, you can get away with wearing meat on your clothes and not illicit screams from PETA.

If your first and last name is Madonna or Cher, and your goal is to turn back time, simply dress the part and don’t care what anybody else thinks…

I try to keep up. Well, I used to. I’m hoping that if I just hang in there, whatever old thing I’m wearing will eventually either become fashionable again, or become fashionably vintage.

And then what used to be out, will be in…
