When Shopping is Deep….

So Amber,

On Saturday, I went shopping and came close to buying this shirt. It looked great on me (if I do say so myself) and was a great color. But I couldn’t buy it. Even shopping becomes a problematic venture when my brain explodes…

Was this appropriation? Was it too much – a straight-up imitation of caftans? Does it matter if it’s just one shirt, not an entire wardrobe (an attempt to be “bohemian”)? It’s not my usual style, but I do like this specific shirt and color.

I wasn’t sure, but I had enough questions to resist buying the shirt. And now I see their description online, “Give your summer style a breezy, exotic touch.” Errrr….So I pose it to you and our readers – when does fashion cross the line? Am I thinking too much?

Where Am I?
