ImageHow many of you know what these are?  A bit deceiving by the looks of them…you would think they were regular pants, right?  Nay, Nay, I say.  They are those horrid “cropped pants”.  Who in their right mind would wear a pair of pants that come up to the top of their ankles?  We used to make fun of women who would wear their pants too short.  We used to call them”highwater or flood” pants and only those women who had no fashion sense at all would be caught dead wearing them.  NO ONE looks good in pants that are made like these.  I love capri cut pants but they are tight to the leg and look chic always.  But these monstrosities are a look that even a Barbie doll would look bad in.  And it does not matter what shoe you wear….too short is too short no matter what.  Nor does color or material matter.  Ugly is as ugly does.  So ladies if you have a pair of cropped pants take my advice and throw them away.  Do not give them to a thrift store as no woman should have to suffer the humiliation that these pants provide no matter how cheap they are.  

And should you have been deceived by yet another fashion faux pas, the Gaucho pant/skirt, for the love of all that is good, throw them out, too.  This is another trend that has come and gone at least four times that I can remember and it sucked every time around.  Unless you are riding a horse with really funky cowboy boots on, no one should be caught dead in these.

No need to thank me….it’s just a service I provide on my little blog.  Stay tuned for more fashion updates…………..  


About thelumberjackandthegypsy

The lumberjack is my husband and he owns Arrowhead Wood Products; Arrowhead Toboggan and Snowshoe; and Lake Superior Furniture Co. and is the exclusive manufacturer of wood shutters for Summit Hill Shutter Co. The gypsy is me, and I have a passion for teaching people to tap into their creative side, even when they think they don't have one! I did not grow up creative or artsy and I was in my thirties before I started sewing and creating things. I am a rug hooker; artisan teddy bear maker; painter (from pictures to large pieces of furniture!); knitter; doll maker; needle-felter, repurposer; sewer; decorator; blogger; glamper; reader; vintage jewelry maker; junker; and now a shop owner. But the lumberjack and I feel our greatest gifts in this world are our four grandkids and our daughter and her husband and our relationship with Jesus Christ. We have been married for more than 33 years and most of that time we have lived out in the country on a hobby farm where we have raised chickens, turkeys, ducks, goats, pigs and beef cattle. We also homeschooled our only child for her entire school years. We lived out our dream of being like the The Little House on the Prairie and they were great times. I also have a personal blog: where I tell stories of what life on the farm has been like and other things that pop up in my very weird mind. I prefer "quirky or eccentric" instead of weird (sounds more fascinating and less creepy)!
