I think most of us who lived through the 80's owned at least ONE bubble skirt, right? Me and my sisters weren't the only ones prancing around in these bubbles, wearing them everywhere from school concerts to family photos, were we? And yes, we wore these with ~shudder~ black tights and ballet flats!!! oh, the insanity! I was so relieved when the 90's arrived and we finally sent this fugly trend into retirement in favor of long crinkle skirts from Express. I never imagined the bubble skirt would be back, with gusto, for the spring/summer trend of 2006! First leggings, and now this? Is this something else I can blame Sienna Miller for, or are the designers simply running out of ideas? Who's bright idea was it to start looking back towards the 80's for fashion insipiration? Along with leggings, this is another trend I'm going to sit out. I'm still wearing the tunic top and jeans fashion from last year. I like tunics, they're comfy.
