Hangers

Here's the dilemma of whether or not to cut off with those ribbon hanger loops in the armpits of dresses: on one hand, maybe you'll need them to stay on the hanger right; on the other, they'll just inevitably end up poking back out of your armpit by accident. The bottom girl here apparently decided to leave them in just in case, I believe this is a case of the wrong decision:



On a related note, have you noticed that H&M has this new version of the armpit hanger loops where instead of two loops in the armpits, it's one big loop across the shoulders? It gets stuck on your forehead when you put it on and you feel like an idiot. Am I alone here?

My apologies to any guys reading this post who are bored because they were never aware that there's ribbon loops in the armpits of dresses. Don't say I never taught you anything.

But if you cut the loop off, you just get little frayed ends tickling your armpit. It's hard to decide which is worse. Once it's cut, you can never go back.

RE: The H&M hanger ribbons... You are no alone there. I started cutting those off after I almost asphyxiated myself before work one morning. Granted, it was the most exciting thing that happened to me that day, but still. Death by H&M isn't my ideal way of going...

I think the wrong decision was getting underneath a tattooed girl twice her size while wearing an H&M shirt with ribbons still attached.

honestly, i learned something today.

it was about the existence of hanger loops on dresses and will likely be of 0 use to me in life but...i still learned something.

AGH, you are so not alone! I feel idiotic every time because I never remember.
I bet I have a red line across my forehead and no one's told me.

But I prefer the back ribbon loop because they tend to be better about staying in the confines of my clothing than the armpit loops.

Jane said...

i HATE them. i hate the really cheap stretchy ones that just stretch out when you try to use them, then they don't tuck properly because they are all stretched out and shit.

and for the H&M ones, i think you HAVE to cut them out after you buy the garment? Right? I thought they were mostly for off the shoulder tops and stuff with flimsy arms that couldnt stay on a hanger..theres no possible way to be able to wear some pieces with that dumb piece of ribbon still attached.


THIS IS SERIOUS!

sara said...

i hate those loops, but even better i love those cheap plastic ones the person above me wrote about, but only when i see girls wearing them as extra straps, ahhahahah.

kdub said...

I've never had a problem with the hanger loops making an unwanted appearance but then again I have never, in my life, been in the illustrated situation. I think if I were, the hanger loops would be the last thing I'd be worried about because I'd probably have a ruptured spleen and be choking to death on patchouli and body odor.

Patrick Yeagle said...

If I were a chick, I'd leave them on and hang christmas ornaments from them.

I'm one classy mofo.

Jessica said...

Wow, you're a lady?!

Haha, I always cut them off. There are better ways to hang them!

Those girls look... well-matched.

DoeHands said...

Those H&M ribbons also hang out the back of your sweater which is totally annoying.

Lyz said...

I think there are two writers for this blog, correct? Party Pooper is male, and the other is a chick.

Just clarifying.

Also, I love how this photo brought up a topic pretty much NOT the obvious one.

party pooper said...

nope, i'm the only person who writes this blog. i've been female for at least most of my life.

MEAGHAN!? said...

YEAH YEAH YEAH. the H&M hanger ribbon is perfect because you can cit it off without being worried about ticklies.

Speeder said...

Party Pooper I have never doubted you were a woman I have doubted if you were really sorry you missed some of these parties

Sarah said...

Fuck those H&M ribbons. They're just there to make me feel like a retard who can't dress herself.

Jessica Eiden Smedley said...

I just bought a new shirt from H&M and thought "What the hell is this?" Ended up cutting it because it stuck out at back of the neck.

Yours Truly said...

There are many "wrong decisions" associated with this photo.

So many.

Lindsay said...

Have you ever accidentally put your head through the ribbon loop on an H&M shirt and nearly strangled yourself? I have. Bad idea, H&M, bad idea.

Spongy said...

Trick is, dont buy from H&M, it's all crap

party pooper said...

Spongy, that's like asking the wind not to blow or the sun not to shine.

Anonymous said...

This is hilarious and I totally agree with you about the H&M hanger. Good way to strangle yourself.

L said...

There were few happier moments in my life than when I found out that this blog was written by a woman.

p.s. the armpit holes suck until you cut them off and you're trying to put the dress back on the damn hanger after the 15th time it's fallen off.

carl said...

i HATE those damn loops on the back of the h&m shirts! i've come close to strangling myself several times. for some reason i never remember to cut them off until after i've almost choked myself...

darlin_virg said...

Thank god I'm not the only goof who gets that damn strap hooked on my forehead or ponytail. And I ALWAYS forget to cut it, procrastinate, then get it caught AGAIN. WTF?! BTW pure awesomeness that a chick writes this blog. PURE. AWESOMENESS.
