Just Say NO to Neon!

Sometimes you catch yourself in an old photo from back in the day and say wow I looked great! Then other times you look back at your fashion sense in an old photo and OMG I can’t believe I wore that in public!

Let’s take the sad, sad fact…NEON is back! Yes, its back…I just don’t know why! Did this slip in from China hiding behind some toxic sheetrock or in some poisonous toy?
I was walking past American Apparel and noticed in the windows all the neon leggings, shorts, and mini-skirts …OMG…I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit! Even Louis Vuitton went Neon at its graffiti party earlier this year. I thought when fashion takes something retro they would put a twist on it in some modern way. I don’t care if you twist it until it breaks…it’s not working. No Way, No How!

Neon doesn’t flatter anyone’s skin tone and is inappropriate unless you can still wear pigtails or you are part of the porn industry.

Save the neon for your kids crocs or the bike helmet you are going to wear when riding at night on a dark lonely street….or anywhere else where no one can see you!

If there is a fad to pass on this season, I suggest anything neon!

When was the last time you glowed in the dark?
