Holy Peep-toe, Batman! The Palin Effect has spread to fashion. Everything from up-do wigs to rimless eyeglasses are flying off retailer shelves everywhere, placing some items like these shoes on backorder.
Furthermore, she's supports the American economy by supporting small business:
"Obviously we're going to get a jump from this," says Joe Aronesty, owner of WigSalon.com. In the past week, the company has sold about 25 Palin-esque wigs, ranging in price from $100 to the "Bargain Sarah Palin" wig for $46. "And it's not even close to Halloween," Mr. Aronesty says. Early next week, Mr. Aronesty plans to send a newsletter to his 25,000 subscribers highlighting Palin wig options and styling tips.
That is just how fucking awesome SLHP is. She's sassy and classy. While many executive dress coaches balk at the idea of a professional woman wearing peep-toe heels in a work setting, SP, ever the Maverick, eschews this antiquated mantra and premiered herself to the world showing sexay toe cleavage.
In other feminist moves, SP is bringing the nerd look to the masses: brown hair? Hot. Glasses? You know you want them. For years, feminists have been trying to modify the beauty ideal and SP pretty much did it in less than a month.
However, the elitist fashion industry refuses to support progress. One example is Patagonia, which SP has bestowed free publicity on by citing them as a favorite. I've never heard of these people, but I certainly won't be supporting them now. Whines spokeswoman, Jen Rapp:
"Patagonia's environmental mission greatly differs from Sarah Palin's," Ms. Rapp says. "Just wearing the clothing of an environmental company does not necessarily make someone an environmentalist."
Stay in denial, Ms. Rapp, as you watch your bottom line sink lower than your level of intelligence. Palinites: feel free to contact Ms. Rapp and tell her what you think about her refusal to support the awesomeness that is SP.
