caught dead… in a scrunchie?

The scrunchie… A popular 90s accessory that was later deemed a fashion faux pas. You probably remember the Sex and the City episode where Carrie ridiculed Berger for mentioning a woman wearing a scrunchie in his book: “Here’s my crucial point. No woman who works at W-magazine and lives on Perry Street would be caught dead at a hip downtown restaurant wearing a scrunchie!”

It seemed like we all accepted this fashion tragedy as a thing of the past. In 2012, Hillary Clinton made news for wearing a scrunchie and shortly after the US Gymnastics team sported them at the Olympic games. It seemed innocent enough, until it began showing up on fashion runways and then I recently noticed Marc Jacobs has designed some for his Marc by Marc Jacobs line. He knows more about fashion than us, right? I love me some obnoxious hair accessories… but is this just going too far? Would you wear one?
