I'm starting a petition

This can't be happening.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a picture of Kat(i)e Holmes with tight-rolled pants. Much to my dismay, it seems that this trend has returned. I'm pretty sure I knew a girl in the 80's who lost a foot to tight-rolling. True story. She rolled too tight and it cut off the circulation. Obviously, it cuts of circulation to the brain because the L.A. Times did a write-up in Sunday's paper claiming that this trend is so back.

According to the article,

"t feels right partly because denim has been decidedly buttoned-up recently,
with hard-to-wear skinny jeans or flat-front, trouser styles. The peg-and-roll
is all about ease. It doesn't hug the form -- it grazes it."

Okay, I agree a little. In the past couple of years, it's been difficult to find "non-mom" jeans that didn't require me to shave my pubic area on a daily basis. And let's face it, the only women who should wear skinny jeans are those who are skinny. Just say no to the muffin top. But are we really resorting back to tight-rolling? Is there no other option? What's next? Stone wash? Button fly? Hammer pants???

Here's another picture of Katie. At least it's an improvement from the previous picture I posted. Tight-rolled jeans, black socks and open-toed shoes is the holy trifecta of horrible. The ballet flats keep her from looking like a dementia patient. Someone needs to tell her that those things are bad for her feet, though. I ended up with a wicked case of fasciitis from wearing those jokers. Seriously. Just call me Musollini.

Wait, that's not right is it?

Anyway, I refuse to do this. I don't care if it becomes so popular that people on the street point and laugh. I will not tightroll. Nuh-uh.

I'm not opposed to rocking a side ponytail, though.
