This has nothing to do with nail polish but it does have to do with fashion so here I go. The other day I was wandering around Tarjay in the clothing area minding my own business (and trying not to spend more money) when suddenly I saw it out of the corner of my eye. It was gold, shiny and very thin. At first I thought to myself “No, it can’t be…wait what year is this?” I went closer to the object and reached out to touch it’s slightly sticky coating and then it was confirmed. Yep, it was spandex. Gold spandex leggings to be exact. The same kind that the slutty concert chicks wore at all the Motley Crue and Iron Maiden concerts I went to in my teen years. But wait, there’s more! Not only did they have gold ones, but I also spotted silver and black/white leopard spotted ones! So baffled was I that I took pics of the rare and dangerous creatures with my iPhone. Here they are for your viewing pleasure (or not). Oh and if someone could please explain to me how the hell this trend got started back up again, it would be great. I mean what was bad decades ago is still bad…no?
