Peep-toe boots: identity crisis

Let's talk about the raging fashion trend right now of peep-toe boots:

I, quite frankly, am not a fan. I am a critical-thinker fashion-lover, and these don't make sense to me. I don't even think peep-toe boots make sense to themselves. I was shopping with my cousin the other day and she purchased a pair of suede gray-lavender peeptoe booties and I told her, "Doesn't it seem like it's sending you mixed messages? Like, 'My toes are hot, but the rest of my foot is really cold.'"

It is very unpractical. I think about wearing these boots in the rain and I instantly hate it. But I bet the people in total celebration over these babies are toe fetishers. Don't scoff. i know a few. So right now I'd love to ask: what are some fashion trends that you despise and/or think are just really illogical? Leggings? 1 inch heels?

At work my coworker is about 5'9'' (I am at an average 5'4'', which I hate) and she was venting to me about heel heights. She wears nothing less than 3 inch heels. She finds anything lower than 3 inches is a waste and says you might as well wear no heels at all. I told her that I rarely wear anything above 1 inch or 2 inch heels (which isn't very fashionable, I know) and she looked at me like I was crazy. She wouldn't think I was crazy if she saw me walking in heels higher than 2 inches. In fact she would probably PAY ME not to wear anything higher than 2 inches ever again after seeing what a public hazard I would be.

  1. I think peep-toe boots are cute, though. Not necessarily logical (although it doesn't necessarily have to be cold for someone to wear boots) but cute.
