Default This is how you know your style is out of date...

You describe what you plan to wear/buy/whatever to a friend and they say, please don't. You balk and ask why not? The person then responds with,

WHY WON'T YOU LET US SAVE YOU?

Hahahaha....Yes, this just happened to me...

I wish my friends would be more direct with me. Thank god my ex was. He finally mentioned that my jeans were out of date and then I pressed on about it and he said they were awful and I wore them in front of his friends (he does not usually give a **** about this stuff so it must be really bad). He got me into wearing skinny pants.

I like to be up to date. Friends shouldn't let friends be out of style(especially if your career is in fashion!). I will tell you in heartbeat if your OS, phone, laptop/tablet or TV is out of date!

lol it was actually an accessory I wanted. Do you remember the clips for your shirts to cinch in the waist? They were big in the 80s. Not so much now. But I need them. I'm losing weight but not ready to buy new clothes or permanently alter them yet. Someone said I'd look like chubby hausfrau circa '92...

^ If you just bought one a few months ago, they probably are already back. The 90's (with some twists) are back. It's that time in the circle of fashion.

For my birthday, as a surprise, my hubby drove me to Seattle (3 hours away) and dropped me off at the Nordstrom flagship store and told me to call him when I had bought a brand new work wardrobe lol. That's how out of style I am (well, was!)

Seriously though it is hard to tell a friend to update their look. Especially is some of it has to do with finances. You don't want to make them feel bad.

Yes, I meant the bottom pic, definitely!

The one I had was braided leather.

LOL! I am cracking up over this! On one hand, I am old enough to remember when those "clips" (the bottom picture) were around the first time, so technically, if they came back I shouldn't even look at them. HOWEVER!!! Everything I own is too big around my waist thanks to having to shop to accommodate my boobs so it would SO NICE to clip a very subtle looking, same-color-as-the-fabric clip to the back of certain button down shirts/blazers to help stuff fit me better without having to spend money on a tailor...
