Although there has been a noticeable delay in appealing apparel posts … I swear, I have definitely been wearing clothes.
Despite my best efforts to be creative, sometimes I just fall into a mannequin copying groove. Part of me thinks this is the most efficient way to shop, because a.) Company X has probably paid a professional stylist to put together mannequin selections, hence it is like having a free stylist appointment. And b.) Company X isn’t going to showcase their crap. Hopefully. So those items on the mannequin are probably someone’s favorite.
But then I remember that my body doesn’t look like a mannequin and all my dreams and logic go right out the window.
So for this edition of Appealing Apparel we have what I like to call, “A Very JCrew June” love me some brand loyalty. All of these items, sans shoes, were at one time on a JCrew mannequin, somewhere….just not necessarily all together.
How do you feel about what I’ve dubbed the sailor shorts? Boo on the pleats, or do you love them like I do? Let me share a little secret… they could be ugly as sin, I would still wear them because they’re SO comfortable. Seriously, like silky pajama comfy level.
So what’s your opinion on mannequin copying? Is it for the lazy, uninspired, busy, sensible? Share below!
