    It is fashionable... The reason it is fashionable is because celebrities decided it would be.

    As long as they actually need to wear contacts or glasses then I don't have a problem with it, but wearing fake glasses...that is just stupid.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    They made a comeback and now are back out. However, like with everything, people are usually late to the party so while they appear in because everyone has them, they are in fact out. The fashion should hit Iowa in about another 6 months as the state is usually about 3 years behind fashion trends.

    I was wondering the same thing- seems like a lot of professional athletes need corrective lenses suddenly.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Whoa! Aren't you just the trend-setter! Besides, hipsters are into retro fashions, so that would make them "in". You fail.

    that is logic that I cannot argue with. However Im more in the line of thought that says Hipsters are into whatever other hipsters are into.

    I think hipster may be the most overused term to describe people or things currently. Well I suppose epic gives it a run for its money.

    At least prima donna isn't being used anymore.
