Intolerable fashion is reaching epidemic proportions here at CSU. I look around my classes and see a vast array of people who obviously don't own mirrors. With winter here, you would assume that students would be dressing accordingly, but those horrible fashion fads that plagued the summer months are still infesting our campus during the winter. No matter how good you think you look in your fuzzy Alaskan deer boots, when you wear them with a miniskirt in sub-freezing weather you look stupid, and cold. Some fads I can understand for a brief period of time. I understand that when two ditsy blondes trapped in the Midwest wear mesh trucker hats, the rest of you fashion lemmings will follow suit. Besides, they can't be all that bad; after all, now truckers from Chicago to Barstow are at the leading edge of current fashion. One of the fads that I cannot even begin to comprehend is these $2 Taiwanese shower shoes. They have no backs, they are full of holes and they are hideously ugly. For those of you choosing to wear open-heeled shoes or even sandals out in the snow, first off, there is snow stuck to your wool socks, and that tingling sensation is not the holiday spirit — it's frostbite. Well, the holidays are here and I pray that some of you out there ask Santa for a new wardrobe. Those who are truly in fashion are the individuals who don't need to re-stock their closet every week with whatever abomination MTV has recently made popular. Final note: Knitting as a hobby, are you 60?
