Erin, over at A Dress A Day has a great post today about the retail clothing industry. Her thought is to print up business cards that say "You'd be looking at a credit card instead of this card if your store carried anything in my size." What an incredible idea!
Her beef is that the clothing industry has established a set sizing spectrum that excludes entirely too many women who may fall on one end or the other, or who may be hard to fit. I would also add that far too often this same clothing industry has decided that every woman is either 17 or over the age of 65. I hate having to choose between the spandex baby tees and the lavender knit pantsuits when I go shopping!
Where the heck is the reasonably priced clothing for women in their 30's and 40's who don't want to look like a sleazebag or their grandma?
I might cross out "in my size" and write in "for someone within a decade of my age."
