So over the past two days I’ve been to three thrift stores, all in different parts of town. I’m looking for things to sell on my site, http://ladybaby.storenvy.com/ and things for our photoshoot this sunday. Well I learned a very interesting fact, a city’s taste in fashion can be told by their thrift stores. And Pittsburgh’s style is shit. I was looking for band tee’s, jersey’s, pop culture references, jackets, and shorts well… in ALL THREE stores I only found three kinds of shirts, polo work shirts, button up work shirts and plain coloured (work) T-shirts. No jackets just windbreakers. No shorts just a shit ton of khakis like the kind you wear to work.
Same for the women’s sections. No designs, embellishments, band shirts, or fashionable attire. Just plain coloured shirts.
This city’s style isn’t just bad its non existent there is no style. People work and that’s it. They live to work and they spend the money on booze and sports. Not saying that there is anything wrong with that, if that’s what you chose but thats ALL there is. The people are devoid of anything that even marks them as having a personality. Even the clothes the wear says nothing about who they are except for one thing, workers.
If I stay here, I’ll become a drone. A worker bee, a useless yinzer who’s only goal in life is to get season passes to the Steelers. I have to get out. This place is so depressing. It’s even more depressing because the people think that it’s the greatest city on earth, and they will never leave.
