And now, a message to Victoria Bartlett of VPL:
SERIOUSLY VICTORIA???? THESE are the pants that you want people to wear? These damned sons of the JNCO and UFO pants of the past? What happened? Did you do a bunch of E and eat candy and then sat down at the drawing table? And if the ridiculous width of these pants wasn't bad enough, you go and put a giant X across the butt!! Why? THESE PANTS ARE SO CONFUSING! And then, you go and charge $495 for them? Why? Nobody looks good in these pants. It is impossible. This is the biggest crime against fashion I have come across in a really long time. These are even worse than Lindsay Lohan's leggings that feature padded knees.
Seriously my dear readers, the wide leg is making a comeback, and that's awesome, but unlike the secret competition that evolved amongst retailers and hipster kids alike to see who could have the skinniest jeans ever, the competition to have the widest leg can only turn into sorrow, and is surely a signal of the final plagues.
Think about it. Is THIS what you want the world to look like? I didn't think so. For shame, Victoria, for shame.
