Talk about getting off on the wrong foot! The popular shoe and accessory retailer Nine West launched a new ad campaign in preparation for the fall shopping rush, and it made a lot of women very unhappy.
Theirweb sitehas been modified with a new shopping option called "shoe occasions," and if you thought the subcategories to this option would be work shoes or wedding shoes or even dance until dawn, you'd be so wrong. The only two subcategories are "Husband Hunting" and "First Day of Kindergarten." And there is another one on the way called "The Walk of Shame Collection."
In the mind of Nine West it appears women are either dressing to find a husband, dressing to drop their kids off at school, or dressing to leave a one night stand. Critics are screaming that this campaign is sexist and offensive, but Nine West told theNew York Timesthat "they are just trying to stay current." (Today)
The morning show on KPEK-FM in Albuquerque NM. We're just three friends that sit around and talk about stuff. We happen to have microphones in front of our faces. We call our listeners "The Six" because that's usually how many people are listening. Jackie and Tony are married (yes...to each other), and Donnie is practically their 4th son. Jackie is a graduate of La Cueva High School, while Donnie was raised in the metropolis of Moriarty New Mexico. Tony moved here in 1997, and has been proud to call Albuquerque "home" ever since.
