Things you thought you left in the 90's that are really 'so 2018'
If you have an eye for trends. . .or, um, eyes. . . we probably didn’t have to tell you this one. Velvet has been going strong just about everywhere. It's so ubiquitous, I think I even saw velvet booties at Kmart the other week.
For 2018, we suggest a unique take on velvet: why not a velvet dress with fair-trade hand-embroidered detailing? Step up your casually-sexy-but-ethically-bohemian-cool look at your next party when you show up in this beauty. And we promise, no one will think you are headed to your senior prom.
THE HIGH WAISTED DISTRESSED JEAN
Again, this is no news to many of you -- but for those of my fellow moms who haven’t yet received the memo:
LOW-RISE BOOTCUT PANTS ARE THE NEW MOM JEAN.
Yes—we know they were THE thing to buy in 1997.
Yes, too many pairs have had to be pried from my sticky aging fingers.
And yes. . . I actually still wear low rise pants frequently, because I love the way they make my silhouette look.
(Feminism is about choice, y'all.)
But what’s really ‘now’? Take a glimpse at today's celebs and you’ll see. . what we used to call the ‘mom jean’ is long since back. Pros: no worries about flashing your underwear to the world, and they are actually super comfortable! Try on for size:

THE FANNY PACK
So, this one flew under even our radar for a while. But it’s true. The item that once used to be a tool of parental overprotectiveness (‘Sweetie, make sure you always wear your fanny pack whenever you travel!’) is now a desired accessory. You think we’re making this up? Check it out:

If anyone was questioning ‘is it still relevant to love Oprah?’- last night’s Golden Globes speech pretty much settled that. ‘A new day is on the horizon’, indeed. WE ALL LOVE YOU OPRAH. PLEASE BE OUR PRESIDENT.
