In the latest random news to come across my desk, the mecca of my gawky teenage years, Claire's, has just lost their CEO. It makes me feel a little displaced to know that the store responsible for piercing my ears at the mall and fostering my ever present accessories addiction is without a leader.
I just read a press release saying that while they search for a replacement CEO, Claire's will be run by president James Conroy and North American head Jay Friedman. Um - why are middle-aged men with staunchy sounding names running this store? No. This does not make sense. The constantly shifting tastes of bratty teenage girls can only be managed by someone with an equal level of hyper, glitter, and drama... I'm thinking Christian Siriano. I'm thinking Johnny Weir. I'm thinking Tori Spelling. I am NOT thinking about some mid-western guy who doesn't understand how awesome it is to buy 20 plastic bracelets for $1.34.
