Are hemlines signaling a buy?
Anybody who follows the financial markets knows about the hemline theory -- that higher hemlines imply greater optimism and are therefore a signal to buy stocks, and that declining hemlines are, well, bearish. I was therefore interested to hear from a female colleague that skirts are getting shorter this fall, at least according to the newly arrived Bloomingdale's catalogue. This page (and this one - scroll down a bit) from the store's web site seems to back that up, so buy, buy, buy!
Before buying, I'm going to need a bit more persuading. Higher we go.
Maybe we're just seeing more gals moonlighting as hookers.
This thread is useless without pics!
Looks like a mixed market to me if the catalog page is any indicator.
a little schizo if you ask me.
That was me
It's hooker chic and the child prostitute look.
They have the reasoning reversed.
The higher hemlines go the more optimistic men become.
Never thought about it that way, anon. It's mini skirts for me, baby!!!
Always the optomist
