Zara Pulls Pajama Top Over Complaints It Looks Like Concentration Camp Uniform

Zara Pulls Pajama Top Over Complaints It Looks Like Concentration Camp Uniform

Some of us look at this shirt and see a cute, striped top festooned with a pretty star and the word “sheriff.” Others look at the Zara toddler’s pajama top and see a nearly exact-replica of a concentration camp uniform worn by millions of Jews killed during the Holocaust. The yellow star on the shirt strongly resembles the six-pointed Star of David, which the Nazis forced Jewish citizens to wear in public. In response to a public outcry on Twitter,  Zara has pulled the pajama top from its stores and Zara.com — though it insists the resemblance to concentration camp uniforms was unintentional. In fact, Zara said in a statement to the UK’s Guardian, “The garment was inspired by the classic Western films,” hence the word “sheriff” across the badge. Admittedly, you can barely see the word “sheriff” from images online, so it does look rather tasteless. Better luck next time, Zara. [Consumerist; Guardian UK]

Shop The Trend: Tassels!

Weaving is my current obsession and I’m so excited because this weekend, I’m taking a workshop with THE It Girl of weaving right now, Maryanne Moodie. Her woven tapestries make such great use of color and texture, and I love how she ties in chunky tassels throughout each piece. Tassels are everywhere in fashion these days too, adding a folky, handmade vibe to clothing, accessories and shoes. Here are a bunch of tasseled pieces I’m loving right now.

13 Styles Plus Size Women Are Told Not To Wear, But Should Anyway

13 Styles Plus Size Women Are Told Not To Wear, But Should

Fascinatingly, there are many people out there who do not understand the concept of clothing. According to the Webster Dictionary, clothing is defined as “garments in general.” You put on clothes in order to clothe yourself, as is customary in polite society. And yet, there are always lists of items “fat girls can’t wear” (I would link, but I don’t want to give them the clicks and anybody who really wants to can Google ‘em). Strangely, these grumpy disgruntled jerks expert fashion critics do not seem to understand that plus size women can, indeed, wear these items in order to clothe themselves–and when styled well, as with any outfit, they will look fantastic.
