Was just reminded why so rare it is that I go into retail stores--that don't sell groceries or produce. Here's a photo journal of my stop in a favorite store (because it's all cute cheapy discounted stuff, that looks / appears swanky designer-y quality stuff, enough for my discriminating tastes, anyway). Soon I'd had enough of this sort of mental jangling -- the signage and sort of guerrilla marketing tactics employed.
Who wants to be a loser (which is what you'll be if you don't buy these beach themed hand towels for your bath). If your are at all competitive--I for sure am-- you'll want to achieve shopping VICTORY.
Nor do I want to miss out on a HOT TREND for my closet. Plain old wire hangers, nothing! My closets have "trended" over the years, up to plastic tube hangers, but apparently that's all 80s.
I'm going to have to get these new velvety hangers...and in EVERY color, since I don't want to be left OUT of the trend of having the latest fashion colors in my closet (none of which will show with clothing covering them.)
I left the store soon after, apparently in defeat (Alamo-me, I didn't wave the white truce hand-towel flag), and decidedly untrendy, staying with the plastic tubular hangers that keep my clothes off the floor just fine, thank you. Anyone else just done with this sort of in-your-face store messaging?
