{bibs are for babies}

There are certain fashions that should never be revived.
While perusing Target the other day, I had to stop dead in my tracks.  
On a rack in the junior section {don't judge me for still sometimes shopping the junior section} was a display of...overalls!
Bibs, if you will.
Ah, bibs. 
 I remember you well from my high school days.  It was 1996.  I was a sophomore.  I had several pair.  Long bibs.  Even worse: Bib overall shorts.  Like these...which, no surprise, are on clearance...
We all did it.  Wore little baby tees underneath.  Kind of like this girl below.  This outfit is so sad I had to  "black out" her eyes.  Hopefully this makes her unrecognizable.  Hey -- in my her defense this was a Sadie Hawkins dance with a "country" theme.  Wow...not flattering at all.
Sadly, I have no excuse for wearing them in the picture below.  None.  
{I also have no excuse for that hair color or those bangs.  Eek!}

Why would this style come back?  
Haven't we all learned?
I know I did!
  I guess the high school girls now will have to learn for themselves... and blog 15 years later about how hideous they were.

:)

My apologies to anyone who still wears overalls.
Unless you work on a farm.
Or are a painter.
Then it's okay.
