I bought these feisty little cords back in ’10. The sales people in Gap thought I was crazy for buying red pants. But little did they know everyone and their toddlers would be wearing colored pants in the next 18 months. Of course I felt a little crazy, too. I remember being nervous wearing them to the office for the first time. Were my co-workers eyes going to bleed? Would I be sent home at lunch to change into something less flashy? Truth be told I spent most of the day behind my desk. I’m not even sure if I left to get lunch for fear of someone making a comment at my bright legs.
It’s funny to think back to how shy I was about colored cords and now how I’ve embraced them full force. I mean I went from hiding behind my desk to selling them online. If that’s not full circle, I don’t know what is.
