Unfashionable grammar!

I like killer fashion. I also like excellent grammar. Unfortunately, those two things don't go together nearly as often as I'd like them to. For example...

The lovely LadyStyx found this one. These are very pretty coats, but wouldn't they be better if they didn't have any apostrophe catastrophes hanging around them?



I'm not too sure Jennifer Garner would appreciate her top giving her belly away. (I really, really, really like the top, though. Jennifer, you can keep your belly, but can I please have your top?)



This is a top I actually own. I find it kind of amusing that they tried to describe this top as being "curve-flattering," but then they displayed it on a model who is stick-thin and has no curves whatsoever. And they even screwed up the spelling of "flattering"! Sigh.



Remember: no matter what the season, good grammar is always in fashion!

Yeah, that last top at least needs to be on a model with an hourglass figure. Even if it's a tiny hourglass...lol.

LOL! Yeah, that's the kind of top that looks really weird on someone who's TOO skinny. My figure is very petite, but I've definitely got a few curves for that top to hug! :)

If not an hourglass figure, at LEAST a nice set of boobies! Sheesh. May as well display it on a 2X4 if they're gonna put it on a stickfigure.

Haha! In my opinion, that chick is TOO skinny. I hope she, like, eats a cookie soon! It might make the clothes she models look a little better on her.
