Clue me in


Could someone please tell me when Skulls & Crossbones became preppy? I must have totally missed this, but I honestly don't get it. Please - clue me in!

Doesn't Yale have some secret society or something that's a skull and crossbones?

It's seems like more of a guy thing to me and very odd to be on pink flip flops!

Kiki said...

I think its meant to be playful and that is all PREPPY!!! Sort of tongue in cheek too.

Mags said...

I don't get it either.

Polka Dots & Protein Bars said...

I totally missed that switch too. Ew!

The Mrs. said...

I am so with you. Bizarre.

Mom x 2 said...

I think they're cute...I wouldn't wear them as the 36 yo housewife I am. But I might rock them if I were 22. Eliza B has them too, only theirs are kinda ratty looking, which makes them even cuter in my opinion.

My sister wears that stuff but she is 6 years younger and more edgy-preppy. I think it is a different group all together. J. Crew has a lot of stuff that I wouldn't consider straight preppy lately. I still like the clothes- don't get me wrong- but a lot of my more funky/artsy/designy friends shop there now.

I'm not really into that look. And I hope its not around for a long time.

The Cape House said...

That's weird. And I think the Yale secret society is men only. I guess their girlfriends would wear them.

Kappa Prep said...

This is not my thing either. Oh, and yes the secret society at Yale is men ONLY. I am sure everyone knows this, but President Bush and Jorn Kerry were both selected members!

MBM said...

I bought them I thought they would be cute in the summer. The Jolly Roger made me happy...I'm usually forced to go to at least 3 pirate themed little boy b-day parties. :)

Bella said...

Not my thing!

Lauren said...

I don't get it either. I hope you are doing well!

Chi Omega girls would have eaten these up at my college! I don't know if other chapters are still using the skull/crossbones or ever were but it was very big with ours.

Stephanie Sabbe said...

I agree, blaaa, not cute.

I think it's because the skull and crossbones are somewhat of a sign for Rugby (which, in some circles is considered a highly preppy sport)...I only say his because I noticed a lot of these designs on the Ralph Lauren Rugby line. It is DEFINITELY edgier and I personally am not a big fan, but...to each her own.

that's the link for the RL line...kinda weird!

Here's the link for some pants with the pattern: http://www.rugby.com/shop/item.aspx?productId=3202599&categoryId=3138682

Little Bow Prep said...

It's quite rampant on clothing by RL Rugby.

Rickrack and Pompoms said...

I will stick with gators, or polka dots on my eliza B's

Preppy Pearl Girl said...

I personally HATE skull and cross bones! They have always come off gothic to me. And on pink sandals...disgraceful!

Life, Love And Lola said...

Not sure. I actually like them though. They would be perfect for Buccaneer games!

KinaBolina said...

Hahaha...seriously! I was looking for some cute spring scarves the other day (pink and green of course) and saw one that was cotton candy pink with lime green skulls. So ridiculous.
