Andrea Woroch is a consumer savings expert…in fact her website claims this motto, “Helping Shoppers Break Bad Habits One Purchase at a Time.” I have seen her speak on several subjects and often have some very helpful advice. But for the television interview I saw with her today, the jury is still out.
She said that many of the pieces in fashion that we call trends are really cons! She claims skinny jeans to be a complete con…sold to us by a greedy industry that wants to make more money using less fabric. Other cons she named were:
2. Garments with more zippers
3. Thinner materials…such as the selection of rayon over cotton.
I honestly to do not whether the intention of designers is to con us into spending more for less or if these are just truly great decisions. But what I do know is that some women look fabulous in skinny jeans; ruched blouses and dresses; and even rayon.
So, I guess if the TREND helps the economy then that is a win/win situation. I just have trouble looking at skinny jeans as a con!! What do you think??
Well, I do not know if I it was a con…but I willingly bought the skirt below from Lane Bryant and I love it! It worked great to keep me cool yesterday…the heat topped off at 101!!

Finally, yesterday afternoon, I received a phone call from our local CBS affiliate, KENS 5, and they have selected me to be their weekly award winner for a contest called 50 and Fascinating!!! The producer said that they love the blog, and I am going to be the guest on their morning talk show tomorrow! The show is called GREAT DAY SA! I have my classroom substitute and the outfit picked out I will wear…so I am ready…I will bring to you a full report!!
DO YOU FIND IT HUMOROUS THAT THE CONTEST FOR 50 YEAR OLDS IS SPONSORED BY THE LOCAL FUNERAL HOME???
HAD TO LAUGH!!
