Eugene's community non-profit performing arts venue is a welcome spot for nursing babies, mohawked 15-year-old punk rockers and ageless tie-dyed hippies alike.

BEST WORST FASHION TREND

1. Leggings

2. UGG boots, with or without miniskirts

3. Low-rise jeans

Oh, leggings. We didn't realize how thoroughly you'd come back until we were dress shopping one day. At Nobody's Baby, a supercute Lilly Pulitzer dress caught our eye — and fit! Except, well, we haven't worn anything that short for a loooong time. The girl behind the counter told us it would look really cute with leggings and flats. Wha? We smiled and demurred and ran away (to the employee's credit, she totally understood when we said that would be just a little too much flashback to high school). We used to wear those footless leggings with shorts. Denim shorts. From the Gap. Please don't make us think about it anymore. Actually, we'd rather think about some of the other things readers wrote in for this category — here are some of the funniest:

Aging hippie nudity • Big ugly rocker sunglasses • Christian Right • Die! Emo kid! Die! • Everyone looks great! • Half-ass cowboy hats • Hipsters • Intentional mullets • Lip gloss that makes girls look like they've just eaten a pork chop • Mohawks taller than two feet • Nikki Sixx hairdos • Pit Crew shirts • Sharp hooker high heels that fuck up wood floors • Shirts without cats on them • Stand on a street corner and look at the next person that walks by • Still sick of the falling down pants • Sunglasses at night • W '04 bumper stickers
