Stop the Takeover!

Thanks to stores like Urban Outfitters and H&M, hipsters are now being cloned by the minute. Polkadots, flat pointy shoes, headbands, bright colors, and a whole slew of 80s accessories have painted the city with the ugliest shade of unoriginality. The hipsters are everywhere and there's no stopping them.

For starters, what is up with those T-shirts with images of Ak 47s and Uzis! WTF?! I'm sorry, but are shirts with images of guns supposed to be ironically cool? And why so much color and patterns! Why?! And what is the obsession with the "era comebacks". It was the 80s and now it's the 40s and 50s. How about we stick to the present and cut out the nostalgic crap that is so played out.

I guess to each their own. But seriously people, whatever happened to originality? Style? And why is the "cool" of now, so damn uncool!

I tell you, if I see another yellow leather bag or a purple and grey striped, off-the-shoulder top, or a turqoise pair of leg warmers over a pair of white low-healed, pointy 80s boots, I'm going to hurl. No wonder I've gone back to wearing black again.

Yes, the hipsters are out and they are definitely about. They have pretty much infiltrated every damn scene there is. I feel like there's some kind of takeover going on here.

A friend recently pointed out that maybe we're all hipsters deep down - like the "hipster within" kind of thing. I don't know about you, but to me, that's a very scary thought. And just to make sure all is ok on my end, I'm about to go check my closet and burn anything that's brightly coloured or has polkadots.
