Let’s be honest, ladies, no matter how much we love, appreciate, and lust over fashion in all its various forms, there are trends out there that just don’t work for everyone. You know the ones I mean…those ‘exclusive to 6 foot tall, skinny bitches’ trends or the ‘just too weird to be wearing in any normal society’ trends. If you hit the streets wearing an out-there article or accessory, you may get snapped by a street-style photog, or you may just feel like a fool who would have been happier in your fit-me-like-a-glove jeans and unbelievably soft t-shirt.
This post is a tribute to those trends that I like to look at on the runways, in magazines, and on the aforementioned skinny bitches, but couldn’t possibly pull off myself. And to all those ladies out there who blaze the trail for ‘out-there’ fashion, bless you and your style balls.

Seriously, how is she crushing the overalls look right now? I would seriously look like the farmer’s daughter. And not the hot farmer’s daughter that finds a brawny, sun-kissed husband… the one that tends the chickens and never leaves the farm.

I can only imagine the look on my peers’ faces if I sported golden, leopard print cherries on my head: The major problem being that these cherries are about the same size as my little pinhead… In all honesty, this piece is beautiful, but is it really wearable? Perhaps when the next royal wedding comes along, I will reach for the old cherry headband…
The Crop Top
Prada, Spring 2012
Proenza Schouler, Spring 2012
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE these looks. But it is one of those trends that the average woman is simply not pulling off. Imagining myself bearing the belly during daytime hours is laughable, not to mention during nighttime hours after I’ve consumed what’s left of the Easter candy on the East coast.
Jason Wu, Spring 2012
Dolce and Gabbana, Spring 2012
Another trend sweeping the Spring 2012 runways, yet again, were hot pants. All I have to say is, see my laughable comment above… Hot pants are an editorial dream, but wearing them out on the streets is a serious fashion risk. What trends do you love to admire, but can only dream of pulling off?
