Oh my god, I've seen a few sweaters in that style and they look SO STUPID. It just looks like you put a cardigan on backwards. It's dumb.

Haha I saw one of those backwards cardigans earlier and thought it looked really cute and was thinking about making it. Of course my phone screen shot is too large to upload.

Also, beautiful dress, JD.

No longer? Have you ever worn a non bespoke suit?

Why did we all decide that lady tops for the summer should have shoulder cutouts? That's a not great sweater look, but ubiquitous around here right now.

Oh, I hate this look too. It reminds me of a cheap sci-fi movie where they try to design the futuristic costumes by deliberately making them look different than modern clothes just for the sake of difference.

I should have listened to Warren. He was right again as usual.

Perhaps we've come to the tipping point where once in the late 80's we had giant shoulder pads in everything and now we have clothing with no shoulders at all. So maybe in another 30 years we can expect to see giant shoulder pads again.

It does look a little bit like they put it on backwards. Also wouldn't that be really uncomfortable to sit down in if the chair has a back?

Dojito has pjs that button in the back (someone got it for us as a gift. They are the biggest pain in the ass and we only used them when every other set of pjs was dirty and immediately did laundry afterward.

So like do you store it unbuttoned, then button it up, then put it on, or just store it buttoned up and put it on while wondering if this is yet another subtle means by which the patriarchy undermines your agency?

I didn't notice it for months later because they were winter pjs, so I have no idea who to punch in the throat.

Can anyone explain what is so offensive about the ad that everyone is freaking out about in this article?

https://www.insidehighered.com/news/201 ... ck-fashion

They portrayed a professor as a woman of color in professional attire. And that is offensive because....?

Because a clothing store is supposed to say that it's misogynistic to notice what women are wearing and when the equality revolution arrives we'll all be wearing sackcloth and being judged for our minds alone.

Seemed like everyone had a different opinion about why it was offensive, just that they agreed it was.

It definitely shows a complete lack of any ability to let things go if you complain about that. So Gap is trying to sell clothes, and trying to say "you should look good, and wearing our clothes you will". OK, so what they show isn't exactly what you would wear? That's the occasion to either evaluate what you are wearing, and either decide to change or justify continuing what you are doing. But instead of that, apparently people used the occasion make snarky or completely content-less tweets. "Seriously?" is not a highly descriptive critique.

I had professors wear heels. Also, what professor is on their feet all day. For one or two non-consecutive hours, sure. Also, the person tweeting about white pants in lab, there are other departments that have professors that don't have labs.

the real crime here is suggesting professors are able to dress that well.
