Faux Pas: A Triple Dose
Jul 23, 2010
Occasionally, readers will forward me photos of the faux pas that I’ve mentioned on CHS. This week, I received three such e-mails. What can I say? My spies are everywhere.
Last week, my parents traveled to Salt Lake City for the weekend. While shopping in Trolley Square, my Mother spotted this cache of chaos in a small gift shop. So naturally, being a good and kind person, she stepped inside to snap a photo for her daughter’s blog. The store owner, however, was not a fan of her shutterbug ways and immediately asked her to leave the store.
Rude, to be sure, but how can you blame her? If you owned a shop filled with a shameful display like this one, wouldn’t you want to keep it a secret?
God, that’s a lot of paisley.
Not to be outdone, Lilly Pulitzer is pushing their own line of printed bags and accessories, but there’s are special. There’s are for sorority sisters! Because I know that I’d love to be a part of an organization that will basically force me to carry a brightly colored, iris printed tote everywhere I go.
Now, for the piece de resistance: The Gator Clip.
Jaw clips are faux pas enough on their own, so why someone would add sports-themed bows to one and think it’s stylish is beyond me.
Had this been a college cheerleader or a 12-year-old girl, I might have been able to let it go. But I have it on good authority from the two different people who sent me a photo of this clip, that the owner was wearing a green staff badge.
