Cynthia struts into Marcy’s Nap Area grooving to a Bee Gees song, pretending she is John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.
Cynthia: In keeping with the groovy ’70’s theme we’ve got going on lately, I thought I would mention that flared jeans are EVERYWHERE right now, Marcy! I am way cool.Cynthia starts to dance the hustle, waving her disco ball in the air.
Marcy: Yeah, in your dreams, Cindy. Now get that disco ball out of my face
Cynthia (hustle dancing): It’s true. Bells are back, Baby!Marcy: You mean you are actually and truly on trend right now? Prove it.
Cynthia: Well, first off – look at one of our favorite bloggers- Jenni of GnomeLover – in flares. She has perfected the modern day easy breezy California Girl look that Christie Brinkley made so popular back in the ’70’s.

Marcy (sighing): She’s so pretty.
Cynthia: I know. And funny. And sweet. And a super talented writer.
And look at another favorite blogger – Roxy of Effortless Anthropologie – in flares. Love her New York take on bells. Super cool.

Marcy (gasping): She’s hot.
Cynthia: I know. And chic. And fiercely intelligent and driven. She’s THE definitive resource on all things Anthropologie.
And here’s my first ever blogger I discovered years ago. The cheeky and stylish everygirl – Kendi of Kendi Everday – in flares.

Cynthia (triumphantly): So I know what the moral of this story is.
Marcy: Yeah, what?
Cynthia: If you stubbornly wear an item of clothing for years and years, risking ridicule and taunts and family members who won’t walk down the street with you – eventually the tide will turn and you will be “IN”. Ha!
Cynthia resumes dancing the hustle with her disco ball.
Marcy: I still won’t walk down the street with you. I’m a cat. Not a stupid dog.
