Plus ça change...

"There's nothing new under the sun." My mom used to say that, and I would invariably roll my eyes. What did she know?

A lot, apparently. Recent years have seen the return (sadly) of bellbottom slacks, bangs, Spam (the kind in a can) as a viable meal staple, and even the popularity of vinyl records.

Today an online ad from J.Jill Clothing promoted a "new" boyfriend fashion look – shown at left. I say: "I've seen that look before." And by "before" I mean "in 1977."

Can you say Annie Hall?
