I have nothing against Wal-Mart. If you want a cheap (low-cost) anything, Wal-Mart does well. While some people won’t admit to shopping at Wal-Mart (the cooler aesthetic is to say you shop at Target), everyone has done it at least once. It’s very hard not to considering they’ve taken over America.
Wal-Mart’s new direction in apparel though disturbs me somewhat and let me tell you why. By trying to go upscale, they seem to miss the point of going to Wal-Mart in the first place: discount shopping. While the prices for Metro 7 are still comparatively low, just makes me wonder where they are going with this line.
The knee jerk reaction of most fashion blogs/sites is to say “Wal-Mart-Metro 7- Fashion? ugh…” I have to say though it’s not all that bad…in pictures.
The jury is out on seeing the clothes in person. To be continued…
