We know it wasn’t a pair of socks

In the weird world of women’s wear, the function of an article of clothing is not always immediately recognizable:

While shopping the other day I held up a filmy $300.00 piece of I-don’t-know-what and asked my daughter, “What’s this?”

“IDK,” (she speaks in text) “but it’s marked off 60%.”

“It’s either a skirt or a top,” I say with great confidence.

“No, it’s a dress!” She shows me the little bralette insert at the top.

Well, I’ll be damned. In addition to the price, manufacturers should include the type of clothing and how to wear it — you know, skirt, top, dress, pants. Wear with buttons in back — something like that.

Close as I’ve seen to that was the Woot Shirt instruction: “Not to be used as pants.”

    “No, it’s a dress!”

    It’s 60% off on more than the price.

    I may not be fashionable but if you ever looked in my closet you would be able to easily identify every single article of clothing. Oh, wait… that’s probably what makes me not fashionable.
