we were silently hoping and praying they'd go away but it looks like we're going to have to keep our prayer and meditations beads handy so we don't fall to pieces at every sighting. what are we fussing about this time, you ask? JODPHURS. granted, some earlier sightings weren't too bad, like these two from balenciaga. we're open to being gently talked into wearing them even:
it's the ones that look like they have sagging air bags and/puffer fish attached to them that are quite frightening.
unfortunately (and this really is very unfortunate), we sighted jodphurs again in versace's resort '09 collection and they have yet to invent emoticons for what we're feeling:
excuse us while we go into shock.
while we're on the topic, harem pants invoke similar emotions in us:
we remain baffled by the people who leave their houses dressed in these things, expecting to be taken seriously.
dear gods of fashion,
make all these bad, bad things go away.
