My very best friend's mother (so she's almost like my mother) has cancer. Her entire family is wearing the rubber wristbands. There's nothing wrong with supporting a cause and showing it, especially one that effects as many people as cancer. My best friend and her family aren't trying to be trendy by wearing the wristband. They're trying to help out a cause that is effecting them and a lot of us. Nothing lame about that, in my opinion.

That low profile "trendy" mohawk, whatever the hell that's called, is getting pretty annoying, too.

I personally have bought (and given away) almost a dozen of those Yellow Live Strong bands. I pretty much got a couple every time I went to Finish Line during last year's Tour de France. My reasons were it was for a good cause and Lance Armstrong is someone I look up to since I used to train for competitive mountain biking.

When other companies jump in, take the same idea, and try to make a profit out of it, then it gets annoying. I have nothing against people who are aware of and believe in what those bands stand for.

What's wrong with that? I mean, they aren't the most talented band, but their shirts look alright in my decision. Do a lot of people wear them? I have a TBS zip-up.

I believe the general unwritten rule is, wearing any rock t-shirt from the 90's onwards is NOT ok. I just avoid wearing any of them altogether.

Girls that wear 4 inch stacked heels to outdoor music festivals...? I don't know why it bug me, but it does.

I agree with what you are saying and Nike should look at themselves because they are not exactly the best role models. They are making HUGE profits from these bands, especially 'Kick Out Racism' bands that are popular here in the UK. The Nike board of directors are probably wiping their arses with $100 bill notes because of these bands while they are paying children and families that are making them in the far east peanuts..

Thanks for clarifying what you meant. IMO there is nothing stupid about the LIVE STRONG bands. It's a very serious issue.

Sorry to offend you.

And to prove I'm not just blowing hot air, I'm actually participating in a charity kickball tournament this summer. It's called Kicks for Kids and proceeds will benefit kids battling life-threatening illnesses in the Chicagoland area.

Here's a link to the donation page:
https://www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg...supId=84185931

Please take some time to look around the website and see what it's all about. I'm sure you guys can afford to make a small donation wearing designer jeans everyday .

look what the google ads in the corner had as the top listing:

hahaha i think those are dumb. (minus the livestrong ones)

i know the foundation of this board is basically hating fakes... yea, i saw 4 pairs of fake a pocket seven jeans this weekend. gross

and actually, i think that basic plain seven jeans (nyd, mne) are now starting to bug me. they're so... basic, and typical, and everyone has them to the point where i get annoyed.

Do the bracelets on this website even go to charity?? It doesn't say anything about the Tsunami/Breast Cancer, etc bracelets going to charity and I know the Livestrong bracelts are supposed to sell for $1 and the are selling them for $1.99. I think its great what Lance did with starting the Livestrong fund, but I have probs with people who ONLY wear the bracelets to make a fashion statement and b/c they are popular. LOTS of people at my college had them and had no clue what it meant or that it was supporting cancer research. There was also something in the school paper about some people who had bought a lot of these bracelets at $1 each last summer then made a fortune selling them on ebay for up to $30 each when they were scarce. Personally I would not spend $ on a bracelet unless I knew all the money was going towars the cause and not some person taking advantage of it.

Have any of you seen Crocs? I think they're mostly a Boulder trend, everyone here wears them, but I've seen window displays of them in New York and LA. They're the worst shoes ever, they rival Uggs in my opinion.
post #43 of 387
- large people showing alittle too much

- wiggas

- people not coordinating with shirt and pants

- over make up on makeup

HAHAHAHAH I've never seen those before EVER but they make me almost puke from laughter.

About merrills - I have size 13 wide shoes. Merrills could look like stuffed gremlins on my feet and I would still wear them. Thats also a brand I've been wearing since I was a kid and all they made was plain white walking shoes made for nurses LOL
post #46 of 387
Haha, they're awful! What's even worse is that now people are buying different colored ankle straps for them. So, you can have pink Crocs with a red ankle strap if you want. The new thing among high school kids I've been told, is trading ankle straps with your friends.
post #47 of 387
Yup Uggs are getting annoying. People still wear them now even when it's hot as hell. Gosh Ugg even made a Spring Collection of yellow, cornflower blue, pastel green, and orange boots...YUCK!

Ponchos are so over. So are those Urban Outfitters shirts that say "Everyone Loves a(n) ____________ Boy(Girl)" God like everyone at my school had one.
post #48 of 387
i could write a novel on this topic but here's my list:

CHARITY WRISTBANDS! there's a great article in the new Details titled "Ban The Charity Wristband". i was thinking of turning it into a shirt. how bout you just donate to the charity (which is a good thing) and leave it at that? maybe tell your friends if you want some people to know. but why flaunt it?charity wristbands are so outdone it's disgusting unless of course they say something sarcastic like 'Live Wrong' which i would love to see someone wearing but have yet to see.

UGGS! nuff said.

AMERICAN PRIDE/'SUPPORT OUR TROOPS' STICKERS! how much are you selling America for? can i put it on my charge?
oh it's not for sale? then why the fuck are you advertising it on your car for the world to see?? ohhh i see. you're just lame.

STUDDED BELTS W/ BLACK T-SHIRTS OF EMO BANDS (INCLUDING BUT CERTAINLY NOT LIMITED TO TAKING BACK SUNDAY)
most emo is crap. no one cares about your scene. give it up.

FLIPPED UP POLO COLLARS! the trend is dead and you should be too if you rock this look. (just kidding)

POINTY TOED SHOES ala NICOLE RICHIE!
they look horrible. just like nicole richie. i wouldn't touch her if i was a male prostitute and she was paying me!

SLOGAN SHIRTS! around 0.5% of the current slogan shirts on the market i can deal with. but the other 99.5% i think we all can live without.

OVERSIZED SUNGLASSES!
ok girls you can put them away now. they were alright for maybe a month or two.

Here's a couple more
SHORT TIERED SKIRTS.
DARK TANS.
ABERCROMBIE AND FITCH. if any company has stigmatized 'destroyed' denim it's A+F.
JUICY COUTURE. unless it's Juicy For Men which is just really funny to begin with since the brand's main demographic is shallow Hollywood starlets and the fans who love them.

ok that's it for now. don't hate me too much.

I thought it was really interesting to learn that the VAST majority of those stickers are made in China. NOTHING gets me more fired up than people who put those on like H2 hummers. If you really want to support the troops, do like I did and contribute some of your money to funds which buy them vehicle armor.

Wow, I see I forgot a few things

But, here are a few more,

-Popped collars. ick,double ick when they are layered and all popped
-Coach Bags with "C" ALL OVER IT, especially the scribble one, or whatever it's called... same to D&B bags
-Grossly dark tans (yeah people might not be able to help it, but they will sure as hell regret it in 30 years, if not sooner)
-A+F, Hollister
-Old Navy, Aeropostale
-Belly button rings (i know i'll probably be reamed out for that, but come on, IMO, that's over)
-Really light highlights around the top of the head with REALLY dark hair underneath
-ANY shirt that has A+F, Hollister, etc. written on it


I'm sure I can add more though if I think
