The other day, someone asked Jessica and me to list a couple really bad, terrible trends; immediately we both said, "Well, dresses over pants, obviously... but that one's kind of old now and I think we're past it."
This will teach us to be such unbridled optimists:

Let's take stock. Color: Fantastic. Dress: Lovely. Cut: Flattering. Breasts: A little frightening, actually, now that you mention it, but the dress fits them and she's not flopping around like a dying fish, so that's a plus. And yet, it all falls apart, because under her outfit she's wearing spotted, shredded denim.
Why would Nona Gaye buy a perfectly lovely dress that could stand on its own, and then throw it on over the weekend jeans she was wearing while she painted her living room? WHY, Nona? I feel like I'm banging my head against the wall here. Are people really still doing this? Are we going to have to sit through another season of frocks over pants? Must we keep fumbling for an explanation of why, for the love of GOD, why, somebody came up with the idea to throw on a pair of jeans under her Shelli Segal? How many red carpets must a trouser-dress combo walk down before you can call it a dead fad?
Help me understand, because if we're staring down the barrel of photo after photo after photo of this trend, again, then I'm going to need some wisdom and strength. And a bottle of shiraz.
