Buttons, zippers, clasps — they’re all enemies to the girl who lives alone. Unless, that is, she is so profoundly ambidextrous she actually has three hands. Most of us, though, don’t fall into that camp (though some of us have pretty agile and strategic teeth) and when we’re left buttoning up the back of a Victorian blouse that has clearly never paid much attention to the wonderfully modern invention of zippers, you have no choice but to remember that you are all alone.
Additional examples include:
1. Dresses with built in bodices
2. Bracelets with thief-proof clasps
3. Tall boots, which include those above and below the knee
4. Art-that-doubles-as-fashion — meaning coats with tight arm holes that require ribbon tying, or tight pants that look like spray paint and require an army of muscles for removal
5. Almost anything branded Rosie Assoulin, which tend include buttons, zippers and clasps
All of this is not to say think before you shop but it is to remind you that if your clothes make you feel especially single, I am just a phone call away.
