I did a little research on this store. They’re located in the SoHo district and it looks like they carry reasonably priced clothing, comparable to Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe. The clothing has been described as hoochie-mama or hooker styles. I don’t see how those style are necessary to my wardrobe, but it does explain the mannequin’s lack of clothing. I have to say, I found this photo interesting, a mannequin with a boob job. Even Darla is shaking her head on this one.
I want to go to New York City and find some thrift stores. I wonder how many they have and what areas they’re in. It would be a fun trip.
If you took the amount of money you spent on the clothes you’re wearing right now, got that amount in $1 bills, how much of your body would it cover? I would clearly be in trouble. I know, that’s a stupid analogy, but it seems like some of the clothing sold at full retail prices is just not a good value for the dollar. What I mean is that the higher the dollar amount, the less amount of clothing you get. Jeans with holes cost more. Tiny thin t-shirts cost more. I guess it’s the name brands and the styles we’re paying for. Here’s one of my favorite quotes about style, and it’s so true.
