Are they fucking serious with this shit?


This afternoon, I was greeted by an email from my beloved Anthropologie (I don't actually buy anything since the expensive wares are made for people with real jobs and style and stuff) touting the newest rage in stuck up lady fashion land - the harem. Fucking harem pants. I'm not smelling what they're cooking. I refuse to pick up what they're putting down. Technically, I should like this forerunner of the Zubaz pant because of the roomy leg, crotch, butt, hips, whole-pant-except-ankle regions. I could eat whatever the fuck I want and possibly shoplift without worry. In fact, I have liked it. In first grade. For Halloween. Maybe it's a joke. Maybe Anthropologie teams with universities to perpetrate sociological studies to figure out if women are lemur enough to fall off the cliff wearing the harem because a trendy store says so. I don't know. What I do know is that they're $178.

It has to be a hoax. Who in their right mind would attempt to sell women clothes that look comfortable?

I needed a little giggle today. This gave me a little more than that. I may have zero fashion sense, but I know better than to wear that or pay that. Thanks for the chuckles.

Variations of these pants were all over Spain last Spring and almost sucked Eliza in (don't tell her I told you this). I think the appeal was that they were made out of jersey and being worn by super chic looking tan and skinny Spanish girls... well, chic but for the pants.

I'm tempted to click on the "See What Works With Harems" link, but I guess I kind of committed to monogamy with that whole wedding think a few years back.

Funny. Reminds me of the funky pants Lucy bought Ethel for Fred for her birthday episode. God awful things.
