i’m a huge sucker for american apparel. everything about it. i could buy seven of those fucking linen button ups and still not have enough. i want to screw every single one of those uppity hipster boys that model and/or work for them (even though finding a straight boy in that position is rare). i hate myself for it. however, a huge plus is that everything is produced in america. sweatshop free. and that is a huge reason why they are so expensive. (other than the fact that if something is “trendy” you can totally get away with charging $80 for it). they employ a lot of different types of models, even if the main ones are 100 pounds and scantily clad in some sort of lace onesie. also, they do have some cute shit. so if you can get past the sales clerk who is too ironic for her own good, go shopping. or, if not, check out their online store, and some of my favorite pieces from there.
baby rib mini shift dress @ american apparel
this dress is on sale for $12. one of their simpler items, but it fits well and can be put with anything. comes in 6 colors (that’s something american apparel does well)
denim sleeveless crop button up @ american apparel
this is $45 (steep for a shirt, i know) but it’s awesome and i’ve wanted it forever and felt guilty not including it
a friend showed me that if you type in american apparel items on amazon, you can find a lot of in season items for A LOT LESS
i got two pairs of knee high stockings for $10, and they’re originally $25 a piece. try typing american apparel ____ into amazon.com and shop around
here are a few notable items:
woven cut off shorts
black lace seam hold up stockings
THESE ARE $5! originally $25. they are awesome. mine ripped pretty easily, but they still look good, and hell, they’re $5. they make any outfit instantly edgier.
