The Perfect Fit
So Saturday I left the house with my jeans on backwards. Unintentionally. It wasn’t until hours later when I attempted to slide my phone into my back pocket did I realize that…wait…where ARE my back pockets? Cue: mortification as I patted disbelievingly down the front of my pants.
I had just walked into the hair salon when my stylist rushed up to me and said, “Oh my gawd, backward pants! That is SUCH a trend right now!” I thanked her for giving me a free pass on the obvious gaffe, but she insisted it was true, and motioned me to the shampoo chair with nary a sideways glance.
As I walked home, shaking my head at my own obliviousness (more than once I’ve left the house wearing two different shoes), I got to thinking how lucky we are to be living at a time when singularity is king. When it very literally pays to separate yourself from the pack. In 2014, backwards is actually the perfect fit.
So get out there this week – pants or no pants (even better) – and give the world the one thing it can’t mass-produce – YOU!
