What is it going to be next?

                            

          Woke up today and signed on to the computer only to find 2 articles talking about the ugly crocs and how they should be banned.  One in spoof and one dead serious.  Banned?

        Whats it going to be next?   My favorite oversized t-shirt I wear to bed.   That ugly blue shirt my hubbies likes so well?

         I tell you when we start letting THEM dictate our lifes it was just the beginning.  THEM decided to ban trans- fat.   THEM decided to ban not wearing a helmet.  THEM decided the maxi skirt was DEAD!

        You know I love my toe friendly crocs.  I wear the ugly shoe biking,  to work, in and out of the water.  I walk through yicky stuff at work, spray them off with heavy duty anti yicky germ and bug killer and happily trot on home.

        Did I make fun of those shiny white platform shoes some men used to wear?   Well, actually yeah, but look at them......


       Spiked heeled sure tobreak your ankle shoes seen everywhere on date night atthe meat market?
 

            Noooooo.  So back off fashion editors.  Leave me alone.  You with your tops that only go half way down so the belly shows.  You with your low rise pants,  you with mens baggy pants drooping around their knees with dirty boxers showing from mid crack up.

       You don't want to get this middle aged overweight croc wearing woman mad at you.  Be afraid.....be very afraid.

I have never followed fashion advice, even when I was young I did my own thing, set my own trend. Fluffy is adorable lol

Sheesh, can't believe someone was serious about that.  I don't like them but I work and ride the bus with so many that can't live without them.  Really, like you said, who cares?  It's personal choice.  Chris

All I know is that at DL there are more personal injuries with people wearing these types of shoes. I don't get it. <shrugging shoulders>

I bought a pair of Skechers which are the same style as crocs, they're wonderful! I'm posting an entry on them later. I love, love, love them to bits! Lol! Jeannette xx

You know, last summer when I was in Portugal, I was surprised to see so many people, including men wearing crocs!  It was very popular over there.  I don't own a pair, but I sell them through Avon, and a customer bought a pair that I tried on, and I was surprised how comfortable they really are.  They actually make your feet look smaller.  I don't sell the original crocs, but Avon sells the ones wth rhinestones.  :)  Julie

Yes to crocs.  Way yes.  Nooooooo to platform shoes.  Especially on men.  It shows a gene is missing, LOL.  Okay, I guess we will give them the platforms if they give us the crocs.  To each his/her own...
