New Meaning to the Phrase, ‘Fashion Victim’

The article in the Pulse Section of today’s New York Post, “Hooked on Fashion – Confessions of Women who turn Tricks to stay in Style” had me howling out loud with laughter (of course, I don’t know that this was their aim necessarily). But it did provide much needed levity in a world filled with 24 hour news surrounding the war. It also gave new meaning to the phrase ‘Fashion Victim.”

The article was accompanied by photos of women dressed in designer clothing and accessories, and illustrated how many ‘tricks’ would be needed to fund the expensive purchases. It got me wondering if in this crazy world filled with shopaholics who can’t make ends meet, this will start a trend. As for me, I’m holding on to my ‘day job’.
