I know I am letting myself get old because this is the type of information I would have known years ago if I was still hip and with it.
But I think my cool factor is slipping. Despite the pink streak in my hair.
So while I will post cute things from time -to- time here from UO and Anthro, I will not be posting any clothing.
Why not? you ask?
I will tell you why not. (Because I know you are curious.)
They do not sell my size online.
They do not sell (except in rare cases) the size XL.
Now, I have no idea about what the size issues are inside the actual stores seeing as we don't have them here, but come on. Really? In 2010 this is still an issue?
And while, yes I would like to lose a few pounds, and while yes that would then place me within their (at the top of) size range, there is part of me - the part of me that was the "chunky" girl all through school, always self-conscious of not being the "right size" - who is completely appalled at their gall to exclude perfectly lovely and beautiful women from purchasing and living in their perfectly and lovely clothes.
Do they think that a 16 sized woman would make their clothes look bad?
Taint their name brand?
Somehow detract from their fab-u-lousness?
Maybe they should do like JCrew and shine the spotlight on us awkwardly and have a Size 16 section.
(That is right. Size 16 gets her own very special, very limited stocked section over at the Crew. Isn't she a lucky girl?)
We have an African-American president, we have Gay Marriage in at least 6 states and fancy smancy stores cannot lower themselves to sell to the average woman???
Glad to know women have advanced so much.
(wanna guess what sex their CEO is?)
