Have you ever forgotten to remove a tag on a new clothing item? If you're like me, you've at least forgotten about that sticker on your jeans; The long one with the size printed out.
Today I saw a woman at the bus stop with a santa hat on, with the tag still attached. Being the good person that I am, I asked if she realized this was the case. She informed me that she was aware. In fact, apparently this is some sort of new fashion statement. She said she felt that wearing baggy pants was disrespectful to others, so she had opted to go for the tag trend.
So, I'm to understand that the new fad is to advertise the price of your bling, even if said bling consists of nothing more than a furry santa hat???
My first thought was, "That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard." Then I thought "Not only am I confused by a fashion statement, but I have to be informed of it by someone who's older than I." Ouch.
Luckily, it turns out that I should have stuck with the first thought, and ignored the second one. This woman's next statement was, "I'm surprised you even saw the tag; I've been trying to hide it."
Hide it??? So, the goal of this fashion trend is for people to not know you're participating. Huh.
