I don't care that these are "so 90's" as my old boss' wife told me, I would still rock these. They were always roomy which was great for my wide feet.

Bump!

Doc Marten t-strap mary janes.

I imagine most of what I wear is "out of fashion" but whatever. Pretty much everything I wear hearkens back to some other time. Sometimes it's very 1940's. Sometimes it's very 1840s or heck, 1440's! I love an eclectic assortment of styles and I will wear a 40's inspired skirt and blouse with a snood and flower clip in my hair one day, linen hippie/palazzo/gypsy pants the next, and boots and jeans and a big poet shirt after that. Whatever floats my boat. Some days it's "war bride", other days it's Ren faire.

Oh, and my hair is currently a positively deep ocean shade of blue. So yep, I am pretty sure I am "out of fashion" and that's okay. I love what I love and I get either weird looks, or compliments, or both on any given day. Except for those days I am tired/lazy and just end up in jeans and a t-shirt.

I don't keep up with the styles or trends, I don't really care if people don't like what I wear or how I have my hair.

And the side pony.
I learned to do french braids so I could keep both of my daughter's long hair neat during the hot and humid months during Chicago summers. Granted that was some time ago, however, I think some hairstyles are classsics and are always appropriate.

I still french braid my own hair in the summer but like most of you I don't necessarily subscribe to everything which may or may not still be in fashion...some things are timeless.

FWIW, french braid instruction videos.

I have kept up a few of the styles I fell in love with over the years, and I don't really care what people think about it being "old-fashioned." Styles I've always loved include:

- Definitely the braided hair
- Polka dots (think the dress in Pretty Woman)
- Sling-back spectator pumps
- The pull-over the top of your head ponytail (like Suzanne Somers in 3's Company)
- Tunic and peasant blouses of all kinds
- Bell bottom jeans
- Denim skirts (above the knee for me)
- Painters pants (I had neon orange pp's in the 80s!)
- Cowboy boots
- Bandanas twisted and tied around your head/hair
- Turquoise jewelry

To name a few!

I am still learning to french braid my hair, but started out of necessity when I was growing my bangs out. I quickly learned that a small french braid at the hairline was the ONLY thing that kept my bangs out of my face all day. So, I try and they look so-so at this point. It was something I never learned when I was younger.

The high ponytail is something else I started doing to keep the darned growing-out bangs out of my face! I don't care who likes it. I cannot stand the hair in my face, and it has about 3 more inches to go before it would fit in a regular ponytail.

I love peasant tops and polka dots too. And cowboy boots with skirts. When did turquoise jewelry go out?
