Everything old(ish) is new again?

According to the Wall Street Journal (that noted competitor of Women’s Wear Daily),  “flats are suddenly being promoted for polished occasions.”   Funny, because I remember this article from the same publication, back in 2004, proclaiming that flats were “stampeding out of stores” that spring and that “a parade of women” were “seeking styles that are both dressy and more down to earth.”    I just happen to remember the article because it was the first place I saw the term “toe cleavage,” and I thought it funny.

Is 2004 really that long ago?

Perhaps so because 2017 seems awfully far away.
