+1 to hating (and fearing?) those spiky things. Good if you use them to spear roaches, I guess, but otherwise....
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
Trends that have been around awhile and need to go immediately (according to me)

Crocs

Uggs

Grills. Actually this was popular around 25 years ago and died out but it's come back. Why some people want their teeth to resemble Fort Knox is beyond me.

Guys wearing pants so low they show their underwear. It indicates lack of respect for your appearance. Also, that initially started in the prisons, where they stopped allowing the inmates to wear belts in order to prevent them from hanging themselves. There's another reason why but I can't remember right now. If a lot of guys knew the origin of the trend, I'm sure they'd quit doing it.

I've never figured out how to wear those rugged Mary Janes. Do you wear them with socks? And if so, what colour of sock?

But they're ugly IMo so I would choose something else, even for biking and working out.

Cympreni, How about furry purses? With the fur on the outside? Gee, we wouldn't want our purses to be chilly, would we? Might catch cold!

Weird.

I live in southern New England
( originally from northern Vermont ) and I loath winter " fashion"
I don't know if this exists in other parts of the country, but here's the breakdown:
Hair straightened then THROWN into a forehead messy bun ( it bobs when they walk)
Black north face jacket
Abercrombie or America eagle skinnies
Uggs
This is outfit is not that ridiculous. But, here's the thing... You will see a group of 10 girlfriends at the mall all looking completely identical! This outfit is worn in PACKS! Where did individuality go?!
Oh 10 points if you see one wearing them with VS yogas

Mix of 3s, thick, coarse, medium porosity

Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)

pw: curls

Known HGs: KCCC, homemade fsg, honey
^ I typically did my Doc MJ's with no socks or knee socks if wearing a skirt with them in the fall/winter.

I had some massive chunky heeled MJ platforms that I wore with crazy tights. Purple, lace, black & white striped, multi colored abstract, whatever.

I miss those shoes. They looked like jacked up Salem shoes.

*And they also looked cute with my see through, red, crocheted, bell bottoms. I wore them to school them over a crushed black velvet leotard and matching cv short short shorts and topped it off with black crocheted skull cap. Sometimes I paired them with my doc combat boots.

S**t. I miss the 90's.

I think one must be careful with animal print. There are ways to look classy:

I mean you don't have to wear nutter huggers, but damn. You look stupid holding your pants up all day. It's just not cute!

I couldn't figure out why I was so oddly drawn to those Sketcher biker shoes. Then I realized that my 5 year old owns these lol: **sorry again with not posting an image properly**

Skechers | Girls | Twinkle Toes: Bikers - Sugar Sparx

They are super cute on the preschool set (-:

The shirts that are short in the front and long in back.

I got as far as trying one on the other day because I loved the print so much, but I just couldn't get past the hem style in the end.

...It will probably grow on me once it's on the way out.

I do think this is kind of cute
