The Why-Files

Is clear plastic really that expensive?
Outreach to the partial-foot-amputee community?
Someone in the marketing department has a crippling fear of toes?
Proactive recruiting at the Home for Disabled Mannequins?
Final, definitive evidence that the fashion industry is run by aliens who do not fully understand the construction of the human body?

Frankly, I'm stumped.

And then he pays for them and leaves, without once stopping to evaluate how his life got to this point.

Boggles the mind, doesn't it?

Moschino t-shirt, $295
 Nothing says kicky fun like contemplating suicide!

Emma Cook skirt, $335
 For some reason I am feeling a sudden impulse to tease my bangs. Someone hand me the Aquanet.

Paging Dr. Sparkles!
