A while back I signed up for American Apparel's email list.
My hope was to get a coupon to buy some baby gowns.
(They are really soft.)
The coupon never came.
Instead, weekly hideousness appears in my inbox.
I survived the 80's.
I have no intentions of reliving those days.
Somewhere there are pictures of me in a neon,
off the shoulder oversized sweatshirt,
leggings, reeboks with the straps,
double neon socks and matching scrunchies.
(Yes, scrunchies plural. Side ponytails
require more than one.)
Somewhere. But not here. No need to dig them out.
I don't want your eyes to bleed.
American Apparel does however.
I must be officially old.
Because I don't get it.
Do they want to go out of business?
Is their marketing goal to make their models look as ugly as possible?
They only dress like this on our once a year 80's night.
They should change their website to don'tbuythis.com.
Imagine your man in this.
A father's day gift perhaps?
You know what, I am okay with being old and lame.
Because if this is what I should be wearing....
