Scrubs then and now – a mocking retrospective

Fashions change over time. We’ve all fallen victim to a bad trend or hairstyle that we’re ashamed of today. And here’s a dirty little secret: There are a few of us out there right now with hairstyles we’ll be ashamed of one day. That’s the nature of the fashion beast.

    Now, I love the colors and prints available but do find it confusing when EVERYBODY from housekeeping to the surgeons wears a different color/style.
