Misnomer
Heather at 4B's in a Pod wrote about a cook book she has where the authors should have considered a pen name instead of their real names. You can read about it - here. I was thinking about this yesterday as I was in Kohl's. Now, the women's clothing is divided into sections - Juniors, Misses, Petite, Plus Size, Maternity, Women's and Old Lady. Okay, so the old lady isn't technically the name, but you know the area I'm talking about - all the pants have elastic in the waist and all the tops have big floral patterns. The tags on some of the clothing in this area caught my eye. I'm sure I could have found this brand name in some of the other areas, but it just struck me as odd in this department - Sag Harbor. Now, I'm only 30, but my body has a few saggy spots. And when I'm ready to shop in the old lady department, my body will be saggier still! The last thing I want is to get up each morning and put on clothing that reminds me of how saggy my body is. Sag Harbor. Now, I know that there is a Sag Harbor in New York City (thank you Google) and so I'm assuming that the clothes are made there or something. But, couldn't they have found a different harbor? Boston Harbor, Santa Cruz Harbor, Washington Harbor - those don't make me feel saggy at all. And to top it off, the clothes are expensive. Saggy and broke. It's a double whammy.

Okay - just to clarify - I wasn't shopping in the old ladies clothes... just walking past on my way to another area... I don't need elastic just yet!!

Heather - LOL - I might have to go back and see if they do have bras... that would be HYSTERICAL!!

Eve - I do a little shopping in the jrs section too... I don't wanna grow up! :)

So grateful - LOL on the bra names! You guys are too much today!

Kailani - I would wear the clothes - when I'm 80 and living in a retirement community :D
