I'm Not a Label Snob but...

I want to preface this story with the fact that I never have considered myself a label snob. I am constantly thrifting and mixing. I'm not one to care who or what you're wearing. However, last night a strange thing happen. My girlfriends and I went out in an upper middle class town near by. (This is a town whose public school could rival a private prep school. Has two country clubs in the town. You're starting to get the picture, right?!)

We went to the townie bar where the locals hang out. Being an upper middle class town, you are sure to find some amazing fashion. This gentleman (who was quite a stud) started chatting it up with us. He was very well dressed in a button up shirt and jeans. He was polite and very nice. However, there was something I immediately noticed about his shirt. I wasn't about to call him out on it, but I couldn't help by continue to stare at it. I was wondering if my girlfriends were secretly noticing this too.

When the night is over and we are driving home, I finally bring it up. The one thing that had been bothering me. I finally said it. His shirt was from Structure. STRUCTURE!! Structure is what Expree for Men used to be. It hasn't been around for years! It struck me as odd that a stud from this affulent town was wearing a shirt from a store that hasn't been around for at least 10 years. My friend Trisha also noticed it. (Which made me feel better and less like a weirdo).

What do you think? Do you think I'm a weirdo for noticing his small Structure tag? Do you even remember this store?

  1. haahahahah... you are NOT weird at all.. HE IS! I can so picture you going "Structure! STRUCTURE!!" And I had forgotten about this store, until I saw the tag on said boy's shirt. I want to know when this shirt was acquired. Also, I love your skirt!! And our matching riding boots. <3
