We left our last episode at a cliff hanger. The Fashion Rebels were about to give their report about the status of the closet. If the picker has been working out, the smalls will stay on hold, but If the picker has only been using the rebels to sleep, the smalls will be evicted. A leather skirt was bugging out about going back on the market, and the FILA top was just about to give the news about the Picker's activity (or lack thereof).
FILA Top: Unfortunately, it doesn't look like she'll be going back to the smalls anytime soon. Our team has primarily been used for sleeping and some light cleaning. We don't have sweat activity to report at all this time.
FILA Bottom: On the positive side, we have been able to provide the comfort she needs during a pretty rough period. And we did accompany her on a road trip this weekend, so it seems that she is at least getting out of bed more.
Tweety: (Sighs). We'll begin to make arrangements. Thank you for your report. Any new editions to the team?
FILA: We thought H&M Sweatshirt would be a member of the team but it doesn't look like things have worked out.
H&M Sweatshirt: I didn't get tried on before purchase. She completely misjudged the width of her shoulders.
Tweety: To be fair, I don't know that you would fit any average medium's shoulders. You do deceptively appear to be an off-the-shoulder garment but you fit more like a boatneck.
H&M Sweatshirt: You're a regular Sherlock.
Tweety: What I'm trying to say is you need to prepare yourself to go back on the market with the smalls. I hate to be so blunt. Meeting adjourned.
Express Jeans: Don't worry, Sweatshirt. Somebody out there will have shoulders so narrow they fit width-wise through the eye of a needle. Then you'll slide right off one shoulder and make their day.
Express Skirt: Jeans, I can't believe this. We're going to get separated, I know it. And I'm going to be on the market forever. Nobody wears a size 4. Nobody. That's why factory only sends two of us to the stores at a time. What are we going to do?
Express Jeans: Think positive, skirt. At least you still have your tags. People love that out there. You're going to find the one for you, I know it. We will always have our memories of Express. When I first saw you, I thanked my lucky stars that I was stationed across from you. I watched you all day.
Express Skirt: You're right. I do have my tags. I will do well in Clothes Mentor or Plato's Closet or maybe even (gulp) Goodwill. I won't be on the rack for long. And you still have your label, which means a lot to people who are into that kind of thing. You can't even tell that your knees are lighter than your legs. I know you'll find a home with a nice 6 butt that will be flat enough not to disturb your designer's original intent to clothe mannequin-shaped women.
Express Jeans: I sense shade there, but I'll take it. Until we meet again...
Who will replace the black leather skirt? What will happen when the Picker lets go of all the small clothes? Will Fashion Rebels become work wear? Without the shaming of the smalls, will the Picker develop more confidence? Stay tuned to find out!
