Anyone else share my thoughts?

I’ve never been to a store and don’t know much about them, but UGH, their ads are all over every time I log in to Chictopia, and they’re sooooooooooooo bad! I finally visited the website out of curiosity, and it was just as bad! Maybe it’s just because I’m a graphic designer… But I HATE how their ads feature awful photography (looks like it was taken with a point-and-shoot camera—not ad-worthy!), they’re always on a bland white background with awful typography, the models (though attractive) are not done justice at all; somehow they always look washed-out, probably from a combination of the bad photography and a bad makeup artist. And then the way the clothes are styled in the ads and on the site is always so unattractive! On top of that, they always seem to choose the most unflattering pieces for the models to wear.

I don’t understand. Why does the company present itself in such an unprofessional and unattractive way? I’ve seen some people here on Chictopia wearing really nice pieces from AA, but if I wanted to purchase anything from their online store, I wouldn’t be able to look past the awful presentation to see the appeal of the merchandise.

Then there’s the fact that some of the images are borderline porn… And that’s not even what bothers me so much—again, it’s that it looks so BAD, it’s like they’re trying to take ugly pictures! Ugly photography + sexualized imagery is a really bad combination. It looks sleezy. It makes me picture some creep taking pictures of half-naked women in a basement or something.

I like some of their items, but I don’t really understand why you don’t like it other than the fact that the models don’t wear bras
