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
- 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.
