1. Is this American Apparel or am I in a 80's nightmare?
I've never been a big fan of this hipster-basics-headquarters (and apparently I'm not the only one--rumor has it they may soon be facing bankruptcy), but I did think at least their v-necks were soft. Now that I walk past the store every single day to and from work, whenever I catch a glimpse of their window display I find myself thinking, WHY? Why God, why? What do people find alluring about this place? The excess of polyester pants? The ill-fitting "trendy" model tanks? The seersucker bloomers? I just don't get it. If they can't even make their mannequins look good, how is it a good idea for real life humans? And how are your legs not sweating?
2. LF Stores, can you please clean your room?
Again, a polyester war zone... this time reincarnated into my mother's worst nightmare--a habitually dirty room. Is it supposed to be exciting sifting through piles of crap strewn across tables and shoved into bookcases? Although it's initially tempting because every piece looks so fashion-blogger-cool, I suddenly realize this top I tugged out from underneath a pile of rumpled crap is a $110 polyester concoction that has likely played the role of a mop at some point. And another thing... if you weren't already suspicious enough, the fact that they mark the WHOLE ENTIRE store 60% off once a season means their mark-ups have to be out of this world.
I know I had other things to bring up, but they're escaping me at the moment. At least one person agrees with me on this AA thing--anyone else feel the same? What fashionable things make you crazy?
