So being the fashion foward(ish) person that I am, of course I love the hipster chic of Urban Outfitters, and American Apparel(more on THEM later).
I think I own this in cream. Except I bought it for $5 at Value Village.
Lately I've been finding my self simultaniously inspired and pissed off by UO's website, especially the Urban Renewal section.
Now, call me crazy, but I think it's complete crap that this flannel shirt, an item which lurks in thrift stores EVERYWHERE (at least in North America) is FORTY EIGHT DOLLARS. I've bought mine for oh, 4, maybe 5 dollars AT MOST.
This just made me laugh.
Really, at $58, it's ACTUALLY A JOKE.
Anyone heard of Salvation Army, a white denim jacket, leftover from the 90s, and RIT dye?!?!?!
Retails AT $48, USD.
need I say more?
Now, American Apparel does this too, but in different ways. Although I am all for ethical workforces but the prices on some items are SO insane, considering a comparable item could be found for FAR less. The neon denim skirts, oversized tees and acid wash jeans are probably hidden somewhere in your local thrift store, all you have to do is look more than once! My favourite article of clothing, my black high waisted skirt, was a $2 thrift. I was surprised when I went to AA a couple months later and saw their version of my skirt, retailing at $36!
I'm sorry, I never do super long posts, but this has really been bothering me. Just so you know, I love both UO and AA, it's just frustrating sometimes to see bloggers and stylish people who don't realize there is SO MUCH more than just a couple of (if you think about it) mass produced hipster threads.
