There are very serious topics I could discuss on this very hot Monday in North Palm Beach.
You know, there is all the new drama between Taylor and Kanye (they are making a career of their idiocy).
Today Cleveland is filled with...I won't even finish this sentence.
So, Monday in the Palm Beaches is a day of...what?
Thinking of the song, Heat Wave, perhaps?
I know I am. because even in the sub-tropical climate of South Florida, we are currently having excessive heat. How do we know? We know. There is a difference, believe me.
But, even though I just did it, talking about the weather ranks at the top of the list of most boring things to talk about.
So, what about this random Monday?
Forget the actual heat, let's break it down to something else that is a burning hot topic (keep in mind that it is all relative).
When in the name of Joan Collins, did padded shoulders creep back into style, or did they?
Don't get me wrong, I love those crazy things, but I thought when they were tossed into the burn bin back in the day, they would not be returning to our shoulders until all the other 80's fashion (and music) returned.
Have we returned to all the greatness that was the style (and music) of the '80's?
Welcomed by me, but here is really why I bring this up.
I recently purchased a tiny black jacket (too large to be an official shrug) with tiny rhinestone embellishments. I adore it, and wear it a lot.
But, here's the shock of that little bit of fabric. It came with substantial shoulder pads.
Indeed, I know in the scheme of the universe, who gives a tiny rhinestone?
Still, I am curious. What does it mean? Are they creeping back into the mainstream, or was this piece pulled from some back-back-back room and stuck on a rack?
It's not like I was at a vintage shop (although I do love certain vintage styles).
End of my padded shoulders saga?
It remains a mystery, but I removed the little puffs of foam and tossed in a non-burn bin.
I am ruthless when it comes to fashion.
Now, should we kick-start more yapping about the latest Taylor-Kanye flap?
No. Not ever.
