It's the end of the world as we know it.

I am on the e-mail marketing list of a national women's clothing store. Today, I received an e-mail promoting the clothing item pictured at left. According to the market-speak:

"What happens when the skinny jean meets the legging? The jegging is born - along with plenty of sleek attitude, day or night."

Seriously? That's what sleek attitude looks like? Because it kinda looks like even the stick-thin model they've had to pay to put those atrocious things on doesn't even look good in the "jegging." (Jegging. Ick. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.)

For the love of Pete, who is coming up with this dreck?

If you want to wear something that looks a tad more, er, like something you would actually put on your body, don't forget that Spring Market is coming to the Jackson Convention Center at the end of next week. Think Miseltoe Marketplace, but with only women's clothing and accessories (and a heckuva lot less crowded). I found tons of stuff at great prices there last year, and I can hardly wait to go back. Woo to the hoo!

If I see ONE jegging there, though, I'm gone. Gone, I tell you!

Don't those look like what Sandy wears at the "You're the one that I want" scene in Grease?

I think even she looked better. I can't imagine who, other than the painfully thin, would even consider squeezing into these.

Meanwhile, I can't even find a peep-toe red high heel that isn't dangerously high. And all this "boho chic" out there makes me look pregnant.

We need a real person in charge of manufacturing clothing. Please.
