The JC Lita Rant
I've had mixed views on Litas 'til recently when I took a stance. The shoe itself, is completely impractical with its 5 inch, clunky heel. They're about as heavy as my dumbbells. So if you're in the mood for a face plant, by all means, go for it!
Secondly, girls think that they are extremely fashionable just because they own a pair of Litas. Throwing on a pair of skinnies, a tunic, some Litas, and your hair in a bun does not make you trendy...Or worse, they have Litas in eight different colors. What irritates me is the fact that JC used to be such a unique brand. I loved knowing that I could buy a pair of unique masterpieces and no one would really know (minus fashion fanatics) what brand they are. And with the Lita, JC's popularity has sky rocketed and one has a slight acknowledgment with other girls like, "Yeah, I bought these for $160." This relates with Louboutin's and other designer doodads but lets not get into that. I like it when designers are discreet with their insignias. You don't need to be a walking advertisement. Did Bebe or Juicy pay you to wear their logos across your chest and gluteus maximus? I think not.
Wear what makes you happy. In a sense, clothing is self expression. You can tell a lot about someone by the way they dress. Dress how you would like to be portrayed to the world.
Well, I am done taking out my frustration. I don't know if this rant stemmed from my sheer hatred of writing college app personal statements or intense dislike of Litas...
P.S. I have been shielding my personal opinion for far too long, I am going to start being blunt. So get ready to be offended.
