Gumby earring, worn by Jethro Cave, Nick Cave’s son, fastened by a safety pin
In my trend spotting, some bombs go off. Here’s the list of what to trash for the New Year and the worst spotted. Strappy sandals that go all the way up the leg go too far! Flannel in black with one other color, like red or blue or white, for guys counts as cool. But flannel in multicolor hits the dweeb file. Next! “Eastern European before the wall came down” style, as worn in the slideshow by the Rumble Sticks, should not be attempted by blokes who are not rockers. Plastic or foam Gumby dolls should not be fastened to any ears and safety pins, whether plain or studded, cannot be resurrected well in the modern age. Sorry! Jethro Cave sported one all fall and looked ridiculous. Printed tights require sexy ass platforms and not blocked shoes. And finally, David Lee Roth look-alikes in red robes and Michael Jackson doppelgangers who sport leather facemasks need to get a grip!!!!
