Fashion Faux Pas: Crocs

Crocs. For the love of stilettos, I cannot believe they are still around.

I understand the concept of clogs. They are comfy, I'll give you that. But there is a huge difference between wearing a nice pair of brown leather clogs, and wearing a chunky piece of plastic in an unattractive bright color.

Crocs apparently first became big in hospitals. Nurses and such wore them for comfort (and *shudder* thought they were cute). From there, ridiculous amounts of people decided that they were fashionable. I've seen them on the T, at hair salons, and even on Newbury Street. NEWBURY STREET FOR GOD'S SAKE. Enough is enough.

The saddest thing of all is that now Crocs come in children's sizes. Parents all over the globe are forcing their adorable kids to wear these ridiculous garden shoes in public, thus ruining their chances of becoming a style guru of kindergarten.

I accepted all of this for the first year they were popular. Fine, it was time for a change. Every year has at least one huge style blunder; it was bound to happen. But at this point it seems as though Crocs are here to stay.

Fellow fashionistas of the world, lets unite and make Crocs a thing of the past. Before it is too late.
