I don't know what the girls call them now - I call them plumber's pants - they just barely had a crotch and butt in them, rode way low on the hips, a zipper about an oonch long. It's what the girls wear now. Whatever is the opposite of highriders, lol!

Isn't Laugh-In more like 40+ years ago?

I think of Seinfeld and Kids In the Hall and Melrose Place when I think of 90's fashion. Scrunchies, mini-skirt suits, body waves and matte brown lipstick!!!

Yeah, low rise!

Annika, you missed my wild attempt at humor there - my point was that it ALL comes back around - don't throw those Scrunchies, they may be the next big "fad" that the next generation discovers. If only I had held onto my grandmother's big costume jewelry and crazy buttons, I'd be right back in the mix. As it is, I am grateful for jeans and sweatshirts, which never go out of style - and ball caps.

So? I wear a scrunchie every day. I use it to make a donut bun. Since it has no metal parts, it's less damaging to my hair.

This reminds me of the banana clip in the 80's?
I'm not a fan of the scrunchy anymore. There are other ways to pull your hair back that I think are nicer but everyone is different.

Oh holy smokes guys, thanks! I found this real neat scrunchie at a local accessory store called "ARDENE" and it was about $12! It had some neat bobbles on it and a few shiny decorations but I was like "Oh Lord... if I buy this and do my hair with it, what will the boys think??" I didn't want to give the wrong impression you know, so they think I'm one of those shallow girls that spends all my money on fashion accessories.

But if I can do my hair with one of those and go out to the bar, and meet boys, I'll be super happy! I see so many girls up here in Canada wearing them at the bar and I guess that's why they have boyfriends and I don't!

I AM LAUGHING OUT LOUD!

Are you sure you're old enough to get into a bar?

You mean they don't make Gucci, Fendi, Prada or LV scrunchies these days ????

Lunacy.
