Christmas Shopping in a House of Horrors
Jan 8, 2010
Over the holiday, my family and I decided to go shopping at the local Dillard’s for some last minute Christmas presents. Currently in search of a new purse, I decided to see what offerings the retail chain had in stock. What I encountered was a House of Horrors, everywhere I turned there was another faux pas. I’m still in recovery.
First to grab my attention was this Ed Hardy purse. I thought it was paisley until I realized that those are in fact human skulls. Charming isn’t it?
Turning quickly to the right in search of escape, I discovered another Ed Hardy gem. Nothing says class like an emerald green purse with a tattoo on it saying “True Love.” And at just $270 this purse is really a bargain.
Turning my back on Ed and his frightening fashions (?), I found myself face-to-face with Fala and a purse only Eleanor Roosevelt could love. I mean seriously, there are dogs on that Dooney bag!
I spun around and got, not dogs, but ducks. Flourescent neon LSD flashback ducks no less. And is that a confetti colored zipper? Dear Lord.
It was at this point that I grabbed my father’s arm and said in a low tone, “We must leave this place, our very lives depend on it.” But as we were making a break for the truck, I encountered this display table.
One last indignity to ensure that I never again return to my local mall. Oh the Horror!
