Fashion Companies Capitalize on the Election, and It’s Not Pretty


Leading up to the premiere of the Sex and the City movie, our in-boxes were battered with a barrage of e-mails from fashion companies eager to capitalize on the highly anticipated event. Suddenly every dress was something Carrie would wear! Every bangle would make us look just like Samantha! It turns out the presidential election is the new Sex and the City movie. With the big event two weeks from tomorrow, fashion companies are cranking out the election-inspired apparel and accessories with gusto. Even Joe the Plumber has a T-shirt! And a lot of this stuff isn't cute or cheap, not to mention the fact that in fifteen days it will be so out of style. See a sampling of election apparel in the slideshow.
