Fashion Insanity = Election Insanity?
I’m in the market for a new, wool, winter coat. It’s way early I know. I looked around last year and found some I liked but they were sold out so I thought I’d start looking now. The coat I have is still functional but it’s about 15 years old and it feels and looks drab.
I don’t really like “cocoon” coats (the new-new-thing last year and this year, apparently and unfortunately) but this is along the lines of what I’m thinking of (I’d wear it with jeans and cords and sneakers and hoodies):
$1,150.00 is out of the question (what makes it “worth” that?), but you get the idea.
So I went to Nordstrom.com today and I looked around. I set the search to “Newest” and while, yes, I see the ridiculously expensive coat above, I also see these…on the first page…meaning there’s more insanity like this to come because, again, it’s early:
What the heck? These coats seem to be emblematic of the insanity that is this year’s US presidential election. Unhinged. Discombobulated. Incoherent. Classless. Ugly. Something nobody in their right mind likes.
Overall, my feeling with regard to both these coats and the election is: GET ME OUTTA HERE!
