Love It or Hate It: The Zebra Jumpsuit

||

jumpsuit.jpgMy friend and I decided “to hell with this recession!” and did a little shopping this past weekend. Well, discount shopping (I’m not totally frivolous). Stops included Nordstrom Rack, Off 5th, Loehman’s and, my personal fave, H&M.

Upon walking into H&M, where I was looking for some basics, I was visually assaulted by something so outrageous, I didn’t know what to say. While my friend was sifting through a pile of spring sweaters (read: throwing all the sizes she didn’t want on the floor), I was frozen in my place, staring at what couldn’t-possibly-but-so-totally-was a zebra jumpsuit.

Yes, you read that right. Zebra. Jumpsuit.

If you have been to an H&M in the last few months, you have probably seen this before. The saleslady, who came over to assist me in my state of shock, explained that the jumpsuit had recently become H&M’s biggest seller. “I don’t get it, but the minute they come in they are sold out.”

I had so many questions:

“Why?”

“What?”

“Are girls getting too lazy to pick out a shirt and a pair of pants?”

“Isn’t it more difficult to pee with that thing on?”

Too bad I couldn’t get any words out. I was so offended by this item that I had to leave the store immediately; I never even got the chance to try on the skirt I had come for. But, if the saleswoman was correct, I am alone in my total disgust and misunderstanding of the zebra jumpsuit, or jumpsuits in general. People really like ’em (and I don’t mean Katy Perry cuz that girl wears some weird shiz).

What do you think, College Candies?  Do you love or hate the zebra jumpsuit?

When my mom moved me into my dorm freshman year she left me $65 to buy a humidifier. I took that money and bought a pair of heels because I can sleep without damp air blowing in my face, but I can't rock a humidifier with a hot black mini.
