I don't know if I am the only one, but I am having trouble with mannequins in stores. Let me clarify; I am having trouble with the philosophy of the stores that display mannequins with protruding nipples - particularly in the junior department.
Do we really want our 13-16 year-old daughters going for that look? Times sure have changed, I guess.
Back in the '70's, the biggest thing on the minds of teens were the breasts they saw on Charlie's Angels - particularly Farrah Fawcett's. The reason was that she periodically would wear shirts that were more revealing than anything else one could see on television. She trumped this with "THE POSTER". It is probably the most famous poster of a pin-up girl in history. There she was Farrah with the hair, the legs, the teeth, the legs, the tiny swimsuit and those nipples. It was even part of the set decoration of Tony Manero's (John Travolta) bedroom. Such a scandal!
Fastforward to today. JC Penney (and I am sure other retailers) commonly has these mannequin's on display with small t-shirts marketed to teens. I am surprised the t-shirts are not sharing a rack (no pun intended) with half-bras.
That is enough for this rant. I have to go buy a gift for the daugher of my friend. She is 14 today. Maybe I can get a deal on some crotchless panties.
