Purchase skinny jeans support eating disorders

Sometimes I read women’s magazines and I’m floored. Honestly, this appears in this month’s issue of Marie Claire, accompanied by none-the-less than a photo of Nicole Richie.

“California Born’s new 4-way stretch hugs every curve, and the company also donates a portion of its profits to Style International Source, which supports women affected by eating-disorder issues – a staggering 10 million reported cases."
Even the skinniest girl trying on these new fangled slim cut jeans can tell you that an eating disorder is pretty much a requirement for wearing them.

A little fashion irony for today??

but that is funny, in a very sick way.

how did they even think it was okay to do that? I can see people making a joke about it in the advertising room, and then someone thinking they were serious and it just never got stopped... wow.

I agree with myboyfriendiscrazy! Either someone has a very sick (no pun intended) sense of humor, or is totally oblivious!
