What the frock? The Dutchess Discusses the Shirt/Dress

Hello all blog browsers. You might not know me, I am The Dutchess of Kickball and I usually chat about relationships and the antics of adults playing kickball over at Average20Something.com. But today I am here to talk to you about the evils of the Shirt/Dress.

I will admit that there are a few fabulous things that have come from the tidal wave we all know as American Apparel. I’m not sure I could live anymore without my American Apparel yoga pants, by far the best invention known to man.

And really, what would keep our Myspace free if it weren’t for those ten thousand American Apparel ads?

But why oh why must you give us the teeny tiny shirt/dress, American Apparel?

First, the shirt pocket frock. Now, I have no idea what a "frock" is, so I don't know how to classify this.

This particular item sort of screams "I just got off the buss in LA from Idaho and will be forced to start turning tricks in about 4.5 minutes"

And my personal favorite, this item is actually listed under Dresses in the menu. Pretty please tell me that I am now 30 and just don't understand the younger generation.

Lastly, let's examine the tube garment. This seems to be neither shirt, nor dress. And I can see nipple, so I can only assume this must be lingerie?

And so...what do you think about American Apparel?

You cannot wear an oversized hoody and have it masquerade as a dress!!! You just can't!!!

I wear oversized tank tops as dresses all the time. Hahah just kidding, I'm not a skank.

Oh what the hell?! These are all what Paris Hilton would consider a "dress". As for the nipple dress--it's a pukish color anyway so it can't even be used for lingerie! HA

The first one...yeah maybe I can see it, but the other ones...sorry not dresses! Seriously, I'd be flashing my stuff at everyone if I wore one of those!

All these models should be wearing the appropriate matching AA tights!

Does anyone else wonder why the models look like they might jump out of the screen to beat you up in their shirts/"dresses?"

Yes. Because you would want to beat people up, too, if all you had eaten in 4 days was, like, 3 grapes.
