Customer service with that "God you look terrible" tone

Yesterday (or Saturday, partying all night confuses one's sense of time) I bought a coat. I have a dreadful sense of taste, I tend to buy clothes I like rather than clothes that suit me (the Michelle Pfeifer-esque catsuit is just one fashion mistake that leaps to mind). But this, I think, is not that bad; true, it does not fit me in the arms but nothing does, and yes I like it because it would look delicious on a male model (as would anything, so this is not exactly a good test). I am somewhat disappointed on handing over my two-hundred pounds to be asked incredulously "you want to buy it?"

Of course, it could just be the Eastern European accent of the sales assistant, but somehow injecting the tone "Christ on a bike what do you look like?" can hardly be beneficial for sales. Perhaps she was trying to be helpful, to subtly hint this was a fashion disaster in the offing and I should really really really stop now.

I don't care. I still love it. I think ...

You wear what you like Hun! go with the flow and show those dull bastards what fashion (or fashion disaster!)really looks like. You might start a trend. Just remember no fur, no pink and no chaps. Plus gusset free isn't good for church.

Augh....I have the same problem. Nothing fits in the sleeves, ever. I feel like I must have gorilla arms, or something.

I am rarely seen in anything long-sleeved for just that reason.
