When Hipster Meets Hillbilly: Another #UrbanOutfittersFAIL For The Books
June 21, 2011
Urban Renewal Overall Dress, $59
I couldn’t help but feel that Buzzfeed’s “18 Reasons Why Urban Outfitters Is The Worst” roundup was lacking something. A little quick browsing on the site and oh boy, I found it. This $59 Overall Dress is made by Urban Renewal–the “recycled vintage” faction of Urban Outfitters that profits off hipster yuppies who are too grossed out to shop at regular thrift shops like their more authentic hipster brethren. But it’s neither the price nor the brand that really bothers me about this piece however, it’s more so the fact that it makes a slim and probably beautiful model (who may or may not be Drew Barrymore in a wig) look wide and well, physically uncomfortable.
Can you find an #UrbanOutfittersFail that tops this monstrosity? Let’s bump Buzfeed’s list up to 20.
