So last week A lovely lady walked past the smoking bench wearing a scrunchie. We all creased up reminiscing about scrunchies and how utterly vile they are/were. We were reminded of scrunchies past and present, such as the archetypal velvet green/black/red beauty often with gems or pearls on it. Alternatively you had a large fluorescent beauty, that were often stacked upon one another in a myriad of disgusting colours. I predicted during this conversation, that with the 90s revival happening now that it wouldn't be too long before we would see hipster American Apparel types sporting a lovely scrunchie in an ironic way. I also predicted that I would be doing it.
A variety of beautiful scrunchies
No one believed me that anyone would want to bring that vile scrunchie back. After all, I think that episode of Sex and the City where Carrie and Berger have this HUGE argument about how a New York lady wouldn't run about wearing a scrunchie they were doomed for all existence. I love that episode, they see a lady in a bar wearing one, which Berger believes will disprove Carries theory but turns out scrunchie lady is some southern tourist and not even close to being a Manhattan type . At the end of the episode Berger finds one in her bathroom. Oh the shame Miss Bradshaw.
I think everyone is looking forward to that love
So I am in AA this weekend purchasing my thigh highs (I really have no clue when I am going to wear these because unless you have sticks for legs they just roll down my fleshy thighs and my flash dance outfit ideas are ruined) I go up to the counter, and what do I see? SCRUNCHIE CITY. I was sorely tempted to buy one for ~teh lols~ but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. So I leave you with American Apparels campaign for the scrunchie come back.
I have no words really American Apparel
