Homemade Life (Orangette)

I started reading Orangette's Homemade Life last night, in preparation for BlogHer Food. I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Have you read it? (Do you read Orangette?) ~~Denise

What trend are you finally caving to?

I love to know these things, because if I really despise a trend, it may take me a few years to decide I actually like it. Say skinny jeans for instance. I had a hate, now I have a love. Will I think the same about shoulder pads? Gladiator sandals paired with fancy evening wear (I do like the sandals, but not mixed with elegance)? Do you cave? to what trend?

Hello everyone.
