No effing way. It's just too painful. :p

I could just see you in a pair of parachute pants and flourescent yello shirt trying to do the moonwalk. :)

Or better yet, in a pair of Gloria Vanderbuilt jeans and Pink and green preppy shirts.


LMFAOROTFPIMP!!!!
Actually, it's worse. I was an 80's metal fan, so you can imagine the crap I used to wear and what my hair looked like. :eek:

I think the 80's fashions no matter how wild were better than the everything-ghetto-is-cool motif that exists now. Man, I LONG for the day when this fad to glorify the ghetto goes away. God, I just pray.

At least it keeps their ankles cool, thank god for that. It makes girls look like their wearing undersized pants, therefore making them stocky looking. Girls should just walk around naked.

i agree that capris are highly unflattering, but i don't think they're on the same ulgy-level as leg warmers. ;)
