f: my favorite fads. #atozchallenge

My favorite fads.
I have a lava lamp [although, in a moment of poor judgement, I chose the one with purple wax]. I have Birkenstocks [but I don’t think they fit anymore]. I like long skirts [even if my daughter makes fun of me when I wear them]. I have a worry stone [I still worry too much]. I think I might even still have a tiny box of worry dolls in my dresser [I still worry too much]. I burn incense because I genuinely love the smell [only now I buy it on Amazon].

Maybe those things were fads when I first discovered them, but they’ve stayed with me. Maybe it’s a sentimental attachment. Those things are tied to a lot of good memories.

Or maybe I’m actually a hippie. Not, like, an original one. I’m too young. But I think I would have loved being a part of that generation.

But I also still wear Doc Martens, so there’s that alt-rock wearing-all-black side to me, too. In fact, if Doc Martens are considered a fad, that’s my number one. Long black skirt, black top, black tights, black Docs.

dr martens.

I belong in some other time period.

p.s. — Mom jeans? What the fuck? I’m a mom and I wouldn’t wear those if you paid me. And no one else should wear them either. Newsflash: You look ridiculous. High waisted jeans/pants for women and men—horrible! Make it stop. Super short denim shorts where you can actually see the girl’s ass cheeks? No. Christ, do they have a high waist, too?

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Ummm I love my maxi skirts! I don’t think they are a fad haha! Maybe the designs on them but 🤷‍♀️ And I love my birks! I need them due to foot issues.

    And I agree on the high waisted pants thing! And the short shorts! Ugh! When I was younger and going to my childhood church, one girl was raised by one of the cornerstone families. And like not in a horribly repressive way, they are lovely people and not weird. But their children always dressed respectfully and modestly. Except in the summer the two girls ALWAYS had the shorts that just barely covered their butts. Like Idk if it was all they could find that weren’t down to their knees but I always found it odd and such a contrast to everything else

    Some things are classic, and some things are just wrong!

  3. We always have a plentiful supply of incense cones and they are used copiously and often! I don’t own any high waisted anything and, horror of horrors, do not possess any blue jeans!

  4. Docs and frocks, as a friend of mine says! I love a good maxi with boots, you’ve got great taste 😎

  5. Surely Doc Martens can’t be a fad; they’re one of life’s necessities.

    • I agree! But I notice that with my daughters friends – age 13 – they suddenly think Docs are super cool, and I bet they won’t care in, like, a year. But I’m with you… for me they’re forever. Wore them under my wedding dress!

    I love my long skirts! (Plus I’m short, so mid-length skirts are long on me anyway!)
