Trends I DO NOT Understand

So... I understand that not "getting" what makes a new hot trend "hot" may mean I'm getting older.  And I am willing to accept that.  However, some of these trends just seem so ridiculous to me! I can't be the only one... can I?


1.  Thigh Gaps















 Uh... What?  Seriously... As if women don't hate their bodies enough... we've found something NEW to obsess about on our bodies?  It just seems so odd.  Who is looking at that? Besides the fact that MOST women simply can not achieve this no matter how thin they become, it just seems so silly to me.  I understand working to get a flat tummy or a firm booty... but a thigh gap? I don't get it.  Not that there is anything wrong with having one... I just don't understand the sudden obsession. Even Target recently got caught up in the hype... and caused some controversy for the horribly Photoshopped thigh gap they put on one of their models (pictured above.)

2.  Ugly Sandals













I KNOW I am not alone on this one.  Kristin Cavallari has expressed her views on this trend.  Besides the fact that they are called UGLY sandals, they make those of us (me) with big feet (size 10 and proud) look like we have oddly clown-ish feet.  Birkenstocks are in?  what is going on?

3.  Mustache Everything













 Thankfully, this trend seems to have faded out.  But I really never understood what was so cute about an illustration of facial hair.

4.  Kim Kardashian













Yes, she is gorgeous.  And yes, I am a fan of Keeping Up With The Kardashians (Don't judge me!  Ok... judge me... because that show is ridiculous. Isn't that the draw though?)   But...why am I constantly hearing "Kim K" news?  From where she ate to what she wore... She is everywhere I turn!
