Please don't tell me...............

I saw two young (high school or early college) gals at the gym on Tuesday
wearing..........SCRUNCHIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE don't tell me these are
coming back in style. I have been really happy with the simple, brown,
goody hair "rubber" bands. Scrunchies were cool in the early to mid 90s.
In fact, they were so popular, that we learned how to make them in Home Ec.
I had a ridiculous amount and made them for everyone for gifts. I got a big kick
out of going to the fabric store and picking out some "cool" fabric for a customized gift.
We put them everywhere: in our lockers, on the shifter in the car, in our
bookbags, on wrists. Did you rock the scrunchie? Do you still?

OK. I admit it. I rocked the scrunchie too. I have photos of me in the mid-1990s with the 1/2 up, 1/2 down look with the scrunchie in my hair.

I still laugh at the Sex and the City episode where Carrie berates her boyfriend (the writer) and tells him that "no one" in Manhattan wears scrunchies.

I would embrace the scrunchie if it came back. I have to admit, I am a sucker for accessories.
