Children of the Damned

Dear lord! They are making a big thing of this too, I walked by the one on the Strand on Saturday and they have that picture and others of the same girls emblazoned all over the window display.

Honestly, teens going through that goth phase are meant to feel isolated and detached as if they are floating aimlessly in an ocean of misunderstanding and people who don’t think that black lipstick is that flattering. They are not meant to be catered for. They are not meant to be part of the mainstream. This undermines everything that they are cutting themselves and drinking dodgy cider for.

Thanks Topshop. For nothing.

Also, I would just like to point out that the girl with the vacant, slightly hungry zombie-like stare has the most enormous hair and it really grosses me out.
