Fashion -- it's a b*tch!


I went shopping at the Chapel Hills Mall on Friday night with my mom and aunt. As we walked slowly to accomodate my aunt's very Filipino pace, we heard the unmistakable clacking of high heels behind us. Moments later this gaggle of teenaged girls overtook us, two of them struggling to walk on sky-high heels. My mother got a laugh out of it, saying they looked ridiculous, but I thought they were cute. It reminded me of when I was in high school, trying hard to be hip but not too hip. Pushing the fashion envelope just far enough is tricky business when you're in high school. You want to be seen as cool and on trend, but not too far ahead of the curve lest you become the object of ridicule for having fashion foresight. Deciding on just the right shoes was an emotional minefield!

There is no way in hell I would ever want to be a teenager again -- not for a million dollars!

You and me both. Only if we could take our knowledge and experience with us.

Terrific post. Love the picture and I totally agree about the insanity of being a youth. Being a boy I escaped most of the trama but still....

It's not easy for today's youth. They are slightly lose one's bearings. But in my youth there was crazy times too.

No way I would want to go back to those years, but ... it sure was more exciting back then to do things like go to the mall. Those first few years you were allowed out of the house without parents. Didn't matter where you went, you were FREE! :o)
