Can't...Resist...American...Apparel

My boss told me today, after commenting on my poufy, pleated "potato sack" skirt and the appearance of my ass in said skirt as opposed to the actual size of my ass, that he'd like to see me in jeans, a wifebeater, and cowboy boots. Inappropriateness aside, it sort of made me want to go shopping. So, obviously, I went out and bought a skirt at American Apparel. It's superswingy and cute. I'd advise sizing up so it can hang a little lower than Dov Charney (and probably my boss) would like.



American Apparel natural denim circle skirt, $45. It also comes in fun salmon and "blueberry" blue (basically unnatural-denim blue).

I have such a hard time resisting American Apparel. I don't like chauvinist assholes, but I really like cute clothes in a plethora of colors at affordable prices. That skirt is adorable; I'm going to have to make the reluctant pilgrimage soon.

Skirt = adorable. Thanks for NOT posting the photo of the blueberry version, in which butt cheek is clearly visible.

Am I the only one who thinks that you trying to please your boss is odd...Not unless you are in the entertainment industry (the norm), but if you are in Corporate America, standards are low for your company.

Don't take personally I have been hit on by plenty of bosses, it's just that I'll be damn if I encourage that form of degradation. Think about it!

Hmm, I guess I wasn't clear? I just wanted to scratch my shopping itch after he talked about clothes. I wasn't trying to "please" my boss. Please don't report me to NOW! (And yeah, I work in entertainment....)

i'm pretty addicted to American Apparel as well. they have such simple clothing, but it just works. the only problem is that EVERYONE has EVERYTHING from that store. I found this H Fredriksson skirt that is so cute and has a similar style.

i love the idea of a swingy skirt! but it looks a bit short so i'd suggest not wearing it in front of your inappropriate boss!
