We interrupt your regularly scheduled program with this late breaking fashion intervention.
I had other Fashion Friday posts planned.
But this all-points-bulletin cannot wait another week.
There is a terrible crisis happening in fall fashion.
I warn you, the photos you are about to see are of a graphic fashion nature. You will not be able to unsee them so proceed at your own risk.
First, my girlfriend and I were out shopping last week and saw this:
Then a mere two days later she texted me “Oh Dear!” with this image affixed:
Not only had these terrible fashion crimes been committed, but we had simultaneously been receiving emails from our mutual friend about a terrible fashion craze she’d just encountered while innocently wandering into a mall:
Okay, so I’m kidding on that last one, but seriously, can you tell a difference? Aside from the fact that the first one purports to be a size 6 and the last one is a size six months!?!?!
What do you see going on here?
Check box for rompers and jumpsuits. Or Jumpsuits & Rompers. When the categories of clothing for Baby Girl at Carter’s match the categories of clothing for grown women at Macy’s, something has gone terribly wrong.
I am not kidding. The words jumpsuit and romper should not be used in fashion past the age of three, at the very latest.
This concept basically goes for all onesie-inspired fashion statements.
Jumpsuits? Not unless you’re jumping out of a plane. Overalls? Not unless you are authentically farming land. (And people in my husband’s family are farmers and there’s nary an overall to be seen, so really, even farmers know better.)
I beg all of you to do your part to Stop The Madness. No one looks good in these. Or at the very least, if you have the smokin-est figure in the world and look good in a potato sack, then no one looks grown in these. If no one buys these horrible fashions, then they will go away.
You may now return to your regularly scheduled program. Be careful shopping this Labor’s Day weekend people – it’s a jungle out there. (Or a playpen depending on your perspective.)
Oh my thank you for this post!! This had me howling. The whole jumpsuit onsies overall thing just terrifies me. I saw one at a birthday party last weekend. On the hostess. Not the child. Sigh.
Shocking. On the hostess. You’d think she’d notice her wardrobe mirrors the kids…
