All Out of Love
Flashback: A year ago (see post here), I really, really liked these pants.
Now, I can't stand 'em.
Such is the fickle nature of fashion.
These J Crew chinos went overboard on the distressed trend — super ripped, paint-splattered — and when I pulled them out of the closet the other day and put them on, I felt incredibly.... silly. They looked goofy. That trend train pulled out of the station a looooong time ago. I feel like a nerd even putting them into the donation pile. I mean, is it obnoxious to donate ripped pants to the poor? I dunno, but it seems even more wasteful to chuck 'em. Perhaps I should sew up the tears.
But, we've all done it, right? Bought something uber trendy, only to turn on it later?
