Guys, Guard Your Stuff! Girl Trends Borrow From The Boys.
Gentlemen, we need to watch our stuff; those broken-in canvas backpacks, military-inspired jackets, wrist watches and now, our dress shoes. The latest trend wave for womenswear being the menswear influenced, tomboy style, the opposite sex wants to snag them. Lady, first you were snatching my beloved jacket because you "forgot" yours and were cold in the theatre. Next, you wanted to put on my flannel button down and wear it with your jean shorts because it looked "cute." Then, you want to borrow my gym shorts so you can stay over—and you added them to your collection of lounge wear. Oxfords, wingtips and saddle shoes are gracing the runways with updated heels, platforms, buckles and tassels. Well, babe, I'm drawing the line at the shoes, you can go buy your own damn shoes.
