*Nordstrom is selling yet another questionable item online in the men’s fashion department…

For $425, you can own a pair of jeans with fake dirt on them. Yes that’s right, FAKE DIRTY JEANS.

The department says “The five-pocket, button-fly dirty denim pants — dubbed PRPS Barracuda straight-legged jeans — are “heavily distressed” and “embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.”

*Speaking of ridiculous fashion trends, yesterday Top Shop introduced a new trend and I am thoroughly confused by it…

I present to you: MOTO Clear Plastic Straight Leg Jeans. Yes, they look exactly like what you’d picture them to look like.

To reiterate, these are jeans that are made of plastic. People’s reactions have basically been, “Um what?” and “delete this.”

They are on sale online for $100.

*‘Bachelor’ alum Chris Soules is in big trouble after being arrested for allegedly fleeing the scene of a fatal car accident in his hometown of Iowa on Monday, April 24.

A spokesperson for Chris told People Magazine, “Chris Soules was involved in an accident Monday evening in a rural part of Iowa near his home. He was devastated to learn that Kenneth Mosher, the other person in the accident, passed away,” Tuesday, April 25. “His thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Mosher’s family.”

As previously reported, Soules’ pickup rear-ended a tractor trailer near Aurora and the vehicles landed in a ditch, but he allegedly left the scene and was later arrested at 1:16 a.m. at his home in Arlington.

According to TMZ, Soules was released after posting $10,000 bail on Tuesday, adding that the reality star was not charged with driving under the influence despite police claiming that Soules was allegedly in possession of alcoholic beverage containers at the time of the crash.
