This is funny

Let me just start by saying...9 year old girls are tough to dress.  Especially mine.  I have no idea why.  She is a bean pole...and very long legs...rather gangly.  Abercrombie and I have a love/hate relationship.  So here are my lists of loves and hates that I have for Abercrombie...lets start with the hates

  • the super duper shorty short shorts
  • the tees that have some reference to kissing...hugging...etc (hello...they are for preteens and teens) like the (meet me in the woods) tee.  Ya.  Not on my kid
  • posters of half nekked dudes that hang ceiling high in the store 
here my my loves
  • their cotton...super soft
  • quality is there
  • they hold up in the zillions of washing
  • their sweaters are good enough that I often question weather or not I would fit into the xxl:)
  • they don't make my kid look like a dork
Now...back to one of my hates.  The store itself.  It is dark and creepy and well...I get a headache by overting my eyesight from the posters of the 18 year olds (I hope) in the posters with the washboard abs...eyeye.  So I choose to do most of my shopping online. Plus I don't let my kids go in there.  Yup.  I am a prude and I will fight it until there is no fight left in me:)

This brings me to a funny purchase.  Well kinda funny. Only funny because I actually purchased it. 
Not funny that they actually sell tees with half naked guys on it for little girls.

Here is the original tee.  Keep in mind. I thought it was a cute enough tee with sunglasses on it. I DID NOT zoom in online and see what the reflection was in those sunglasses.

Ha.  Just imagine my surprise when I got it.  Funny.

Anyways.  Instead of sending it back (it was on clearance...go figure) I just got out the bling and decided to fix it.

So now...in person...you would never know what is under that bling.

Let this be a lesson to all mothers shopping at Abercrombie online.
  ALWAYS zoom in to see what you are actually ordering.

Oh geez! I totally agree! I do like the way it smells... although the cotton, even if it's soft, is so thin it makes me think "cheap!" and it shrinks so easy... no quality in my mind :)

I love what you did to the nakey guys though :) And why do their pants have to be just about to fall off and show ***?
