I'm starting a new segment over here called "Still on Sale".
Today made it about the 5th time I've gone into Topshop, grabbed something awesome off the sale rack, and then realized-- in the fitting room-- why it was still on sale.
Topshop does make a lot of ridiculous clothes, but the ones in this section will be special. These are the ones that someone didn't buy ironically or for a theme party. They just hang around on the rack and suck.
Unfortunately, my first big Whaa? moment wasn't captured on camera. I found a pretty little pink dress with butterfly sleeves. It was when I tried to fit my head through a CROTCH hole that I realized it was not a dress, but a playsuit. Hilarity ensued.
Here's the winner for today. On the rack, it looked like a floaty maxi dress with some sort of sleeve. Bingo! There were a ton on the rack. As usual, I thought I had found something that EVERYONE ELSE had somehow missed.
Oh. A see-through, hip-hugging monstrosity that splits down the front along a ruffle seam. I left my jeans on to keep the peep show to a minimum. The dress's front is shorter than the back, which also inexplicably sports a train. I'm 5'8", so there must have been intentional length added.
Excuse me, Kate Moss? There's a BIG GAPING HOLE in the front of my dress.
I looked like a kid playing dress up.
