Super Flare

  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.

Marcy:  She is sooooo cute.

Cynthia:  I know! Love her. Her blog is super famous.

Even celebrities are wearing flares like crazy.


Marcy:
 Yeah, what?Cynthia (triumphantly):  So I know what the moral of this story is.

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.
