There are so many things that need to be done in the world of fashion. Itís a shame I canít magically morph into a fashion fairy godmother and flit about fixing the fashion industry. On the off chance Iím reincarnated into a fashion fairy
godmother next week, here are a few changes you can look forward to:
Shirts Will Be Available for All Bust Sizes
Have you noticed that as sizes go up, the area in the shirt reserved for the girls goes up as well? Itís as if everyone over a size XS has a chest that would do Dolly proud, and it makes it very hard for girls who donít exactly measure up to fit into a shirt. Not only are the bust sizes enormous once you get to a M or L, the arm holes are huge, too. Why does every girl with broad shoulders or a big frame have to have arms the size of my not-so-tiny thighs? In order to fit my arms and shoulders, my shirts bag so much across the front I could stage a circus in there. Come on down folks, enter right here under my arm Ė thereís plenty of space available!
Shorty and Curvy Stores
Itís been requested once and I second the motion Ė short doesnít mean flat. Apparently, the tall girls out there are all gigantically busty with huge arm that require tent-like shirts, but the short ones are all built like a ten-year-old girl. If you have the misfortune to be short, youíd better also be flat as a board any way you happen to turn because nobody is making clothes that fit you if you dare to have a large chest or round hips. It does make you wonder what Jennifer Lopez wears. After all, sheís not exactly towering over us, and sheís got some serious curves Ė where does she shop and can be open a local branch for my short, curvy friends?
Shorts Would Be Sold All Summer
Living in the South, the heat lasts well into October. When you walk to school in temperatures close to three digits, youíre not interested in jeans and long-sleeve t-shirts. I want (long) shorts and capris to walk in and to wear to school
. Think light weight. Yet without fail, every year when I go to buy some new school clothes I have my choice of corduroy or heavy denim with a few sweaters rolled in for good measure. Either I need to start buying for back to school in March of the previous year or I need to find a store that actually sells things that match the seasons I live in. I have the same problem in the winter, actually. Have you ever tried to find a sweatshirt for a school project in March? Good luck with that. It might be in the forties outside, but obviously we should all be buying bikinis. It just makes you wonder sometimes.
