Today begins with me in the throes of another infrequent fashion scenario. Although you’ll find no recantation here, you will discover…Indecision!
Rarely do I lack a firm stance on what I believe to be true about fashion decisions, whether they be prudent or avant-garde. I may alter my opinion at any given point, as demonstrated in yesterday’s post; I’ve never been a fan of needless bull-headedness. But I hardly encounter the occasion where I witness a new trend and formulate this as my response: ??????????
Regardless, that’s the best I can produce when I see socks and pumps paired together. Although initiated in the 80s, this odd?/offbeat?/eclectic?/chic?/dorky? combination has more recently been revived by the likes of Ugly Betty. At that point my thoughts were that awkward Betty was attempting to make a fashion statement a la fictitious “Mode”. Said fashion statement was a bit “off” but, in turn, really kind of worked for the character.
But now I’m witnessing the same fashion statement a la genuine “Vogue” and various other bastions of fashion editorials. My hasty reaction was, “NO! NO NO NO NO NO!!!!”
Currently, though, I find myself torn. I kind of…sorta…like it? I maybe….could possibly…try it?
I’m not sayin’; I’m just sayin’. We’ll see if I ever muster the gumption to attempt this look. The mild Texas winter would certainly allow for it.
In the mean time, you decide. Socks with pumps: Yay or Nay?
