Honestly. Who shops there? WHO would purchase clothing from a BARN? Truly, I do not know what they sell in there nowadays. I haven’t set foot in the store in ages. The name itself, however, makes me think they specialize in Moo-Moos, big flowery shirts, embroidered sweaters and mom jeans. I cannot shop in the same place she shops:
A place staffed by people like her:
Be sure that Cathy wears the clothes she sells. That’s why I won’t.
Not that I shop at fabulous, exclusive stores or anything. Still, I can’t shop at a BARN or barn-like places such as Marshalls and Ross. Well, that’s not true. I can stand those discount stores if I’m looking for luggage or purses and sometimes you find good shoes. Still, I can’t schlep through racks and racks of marked down merchandise looking for something that actually is in fashion AND fits. While the clearance rack is my best friend, bargain bin hunter, I ain’t. Digging around for clothes like a hobo.
There’s even a Dress Barn Woman. As if the original store didn’t carry enough cringe-worthy fashions, they needed another one with bigger sizes so the overweight could look shitty too.
Peep the dude sitting in the window of the store, behind the handicapped sign. He’s clearly waiting for his size 24 wife to finish picking out unflattering slacks and pastel sweaters.
Anyway, the Dress Barn sucks. I ranted about this a while ago, but the fire was re-ignited by a post over at OKP where the following query was posed:
Ladies, what happens if you get a letter at work that says (one of my lawyer friends said, some chick @ her job got a card in an envelope that had the following):
Your wardrobe is unprofessional.
Your hair is a mess.
and here’s a gift card for you to get some new stuff.
Detail I forget, the gift card was from Dress Barn.
FUCKING DRESS BARN? I’d be heated that someone would even insinuate that my wardrobe is so janky that I could use some help from the likes of DB! The Nerve!
After some thought, I have concluded that Hillary Clinton shops at DB. I’m pretty sure they have a wide selection of shitty flattering pantsuits.
