Can you see that teeny tiny Aeropostale label at the top of this post? It's very important to Kate. Her sister Ana came home from high school once, and announced to us that , "the popular kids at school wear only "Aeropostale clothing" . Kate promptly emptied her closet, and ditched everything that wasn't Aeropostale. One fine cold winter Kate only had one pair of jeans, and a couple of tops left. She would wear skirts in the snow because she refused to wear her last pair of pants because they weren't Aeropostale either, and neither was her winter coat. You get the picture.
I took our Aeropostale clothing pieces that were too small, and donated them to the poor, but not before I removed the labels , and I sewed them into a sensible pair of jeans. I had her try on those impostor jeans , and she squinted her eyes at me , while I said " oh, those jeans are cute, and they're Aeropostale!!" She just stared me down , and said............ u m , y e a h.
Like that guy in the "office space movie". I said, "well they are" -"just look at the Label." She never figured it out, and she never wore those jeans. Kate now has a closet full of "Aeropostal" clothing, I pray to God that no one ever says's anything negative to her about her clothing . I don't want to switch out her closet brands again.
