When we came across a blog post featuring a thrift store Abercrombie & Fitch find — a t-shirt displaying fake books like "Boy-Ology," "(We've Got) Chemistry", and "Art — of Chasing Boys" (GOOD ONE, GUYS) — we wondered what the store's doing to make young women feel inadequate these days.
Turns out, Abercrombie & Fitch's current t-shirt offerings are more inoffensive than a puppy live cam.
"She wears flip flops seven days a week. She loves late nights and early mornings. She's an A&F girl."
No, she's in college in a warm climate.
Then there's: "She's always smiling and having fun. She loves to laugh all day & night. She's an A&F girl."
Or a manic pixie dream girl, perhaps?
You know those people who have the most cliche Facebook Likes ever? "Daiquiris. Sunsets. Sushi." (And they're always listed in one-word sentences. What's with the one-word sentences?) That's what these t-shirts remind me of. But maybe after years of horrible publicity from sexist slogans, discrimination lawsuits, and disappointing profits, the company wants to be blander than ever.
