Culottes, crop top, bucket bag – three trends in one outfit. Total fluke, but somehow amusing to me.

Side note: I knew about and wore culottes when I was a little girl, but never saw the word spelled out, so I assumed it was something along the lines of “coolots.” Because that’s how it’s pronounced and that’s how my mom said it. Then a year or so ago this style of pant came around again, but this time I saw the word written and assumed the garment itself was some variant of what I scampered around in as a kid. I also assumed that the word describing this new variant was pronounced “cull-oats.” Because I speak English, a very small amount of Spanish, and Pig Latin, but no French. And yet my childhood coolots and my adulthood culottes are, in fact, the same thing. LIVE AND LEARN. read more
