So I know this post comes about a month after Juicy closed all of its US stores, but I have been in grieving silence for the past month trying to collect my thoughts.
I am a lady who has 1/4 of her closet arranged by colors of the rainbow (red to black and every gradient in between) of Juicy Tracksuits. #dontjudgemeplease
I am so going to miss their lines of colorful, fun, playful fabrics (terrycloth and velour all day long) and two-piece swimsuits that actually fit me. I think they had a Pinkberry problem – what I mean is too many products, too much expansion…too fast. I mean, my dog was seriously missing their pooch line – okay, I was totally missing their pooch line, no offense to Coach but I’m over them (Coach stuff seems to fall apart on me every other day…bought a purse and used it once, it looks like I’ve taken it through a dryer cycle on full speed).
And as for the new posts out there comparing Juicy to Lululemon, maybe they’re onto something. Maybe the modern woman wants to look classy and put together. Okay, so who says you can’t do that in a Juicy tracksuit? Why do you gotta be all matchy-matchy with it, Paris? I prefer to wear one Juicy item at a time – and heck, even mix and match my outfits.
And yes, I will be venturing out to Kohl’s to check out the new Juicy line — hope it doesn’t turn into a Hard Candy fiasco (I hate setting foot in Walmart)…
Onwards & upwards,
