We are easily distracted, particularly since we are under contract and on deadline for our new book, Mama B’s on a Budget. Today’s ADD moment came while re-reading a story we wrote a year ago about how to avoid falling victim to passing fads. We admit, the story was a little naughty, involving a devil, a dominatrix, a whip, Twitter and an angel. (Sounds like good material for Reality TV.)

Right after we read the story, we got a little anxious and started to hyperventilate.  We haven’t been out much lately.  What are the latest fads? Instead of having entire shops devoted to them, we were sure Jeggings would be shrunken and gone by now.

So, our confidence is a little shaky.

Then WHAP!

Bells rang.  Lights flashed. We received ‘the word’.  It arrived in the form of a Tweet hustling faux fur vests.

Yes!  Of course, the perfect fad.

Who would want a ratty looking fake dead animal wrapped around their body for more than a season?

Sheepishly, we realized we wanted in on this latest trend and went on the hunt for a vest that fits into our fad item budget criteria. We found three fun fakes for under $100 bucks.
