What I Wore: Triple Zero

2:27 PM

I'm not usually one to rant but... 

Several weeks ago J.Crew had this green camp shirt in their windows styled with an adorable neon skirt. I was smitten. During their 30% off sale I popped in and was bummed to find that 0 and 00 were sold out at my local store so I went online and ordered them. As a joke (and of course to reach the free shipping threshold) I added the size 000 to my cart. Would you believe this shirt is a 000? 

I don't understand why retailers must continue with this ridiculous trend of vanity sizing! I've worked in the retail industry for over 5 years and all it does is make people feel worse when they shop at retailers with more traditional sizing or push people into ridiculous sizes like 000. I'm by no means an abnormally small size; I feel like I'm a pretty traditional XS and the fact that this shirt is a 000 just grinds my gears. And it's not just J.Crew, it's come to the point where I've been sized out of retailers like Ann Taylor and LOFT because the smallest size is just too big. I wish retailers would just stick to making clothes and not worry so much about the size that appears label. I feel like they are seriously messing with peoples heads. So it goes...

J.Crew Camp Shirt  //  Lucky Brand Lolita Skinny Jeans  //  Anne Klein Leopard Pumps (similar)  //  Olivia Harris Handbag (old)  //  Marc By Marc Jacobs Aviators (similar)  //  MAC Lady Danger Lipstick

Have you been a victim of vanity sizing? Do you feel like any modern retailers actually run true to size these days?
