Seajen, you're right. That probably has a lot to do with it. I'm honestly really looking forward to see how things are different then. I absolutely love color and am hopeful that I'll be able to improve my 'summer' wardrobe like I have done with my fall/winter wardrobe. I can't wait to break out the pastel chino's etc.
Re: Stitchy and SB.
I'm looking at this from a social theory perspective of sorts. Once people are familiar or if they are respected here (i.e. affiliates) they are more likely to be accepted outright. I'm just curious to see how some of the well liked but 'out there' fits for some of the posters would be received if they were to be from a new source.
MF, I do agree about the groupthink. I do not think that it has been an issue for me personally, since I needed to learn the basics.
(GUYS YOU WERE RIGHT NOW SHUT UP AND DONT SAY YOU TOLD ME SO!)
