I think I’m going to be sick.

I’m all for self-expression but this is just tasteless.  I saw this post, New Homeless-Inspired Fashion Spread is Super Tasteful and was totally repelled.  Sure, the actual picture is nicely shot and designed, but come on, capitalizing on homelessness?  And this isn’t the only reference to “homeless chic!” JEEZ.  Just walk the streets of NYC as I do everyday and you’ll see there’s nothing glamorous or fashionable about street living.  It’s downright depressing.  Perhaps the one good thing that can come out of this post/pic is that it reminds us of the horrors that homeless people have to endure every single day.  Maybe it will motivate us to act — not in terms of buying clothes but supporting our homeless citizens.
