You know that saying about trends, "if you remember the first time around, then you probably shouldn't try it again?" That's never really applied to me, but it must've been about Grade 6 when there was nothing cooler than baggy 'modrobes' pants and butterfly clips. Though I'm not about to resurrect butterfly clips, I did manage to thrift a $5 pair of crazy purple modrobes on the weekend. Though I wasn't planning on wearing them outside, I wanted to experiment with pants that weren't superskinny for once and I'm kind of pleased with the results.
By now, I have embraced the nickname 'Captain Purple'.
