Legwarmer are apparently the "new" (or rather, revived, if you're old enough to remember it in the 80's) trend, at least in New York.<BR>Check it out: <A HREF="http://www.styleemergency.com/fashion1b.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.styleemergency.com/fashion1b.htm</A>

Ooooookaaay...I don't think I'll be pulling out my old ones. As a matter of fact, I think they're long gone.

What I want to know is - if your leg warmers are really ratty does that make them classier?<P>Ratty leg warmers are the only kinds I have.

What about mismatched pairs. I can only find one of three paris of legwarmers. Maybe I could start a new trend by wearing them on my head.

I can't wait for the designer perfume to come out:<P>A scintilating scent of hair spray, subtly blended with the tang of deep heat, contrasted by a lasting base note of old sweat.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!<BR>NO PERFUME!<BR>Signed by a chemically sensitive person who can never go see ballet due to all the perfume in the room.<BR>I understand some performers are bothered by the stuff too.

Did anyone else see those marvellous Chanel high heels made to look like pointe shoes? They're only about 4 inches high, but the toe is pleated and boxed, the vamp shoes just a bit of "toe cleavage" and the ribbons wind up the ankle.<P>I believe Tom Ford for Gucci also has a pair out that are similar. Thank goodness that in THESE shoes one is not required to walk on one's toes!

Is it just me, or are all those models pigeon-toed? Perhaps they should have a ballet class or two ... might teach them to tie their shoes properly too!
