I’ve been biting my tongue (yeah, OK Zoe, not really) on this item for a while, but enough is enough.
These are possibly the worst thing, fashion wise, since Ugg boots, since rah hair (seriously, I DO NOT understand this trend of looking like you’ve been having lots of fun in a hedge) and yes, even since Crocs (whats worse than the smell of one pair of Crocs? A shop full of them. I went into a Croc Shop in Amsterdam a few years ago and had to leave straight away – the smell was even worse than a branch of Lush!)
The idea behind them is reasonably logical. If you’re curled up on the sofa with a blanket on, its a bit difficult to reach for things cause your hands are all nice and cosy.
However, the fact that someone has not only “designed” a blanket with sleeves (so, er, whats the difference between that and a dressing gown put on back to front?) but is charging between Ã‚Â£20 and Ã‚Â£25 for something that without sleeves will cost you Ã‚Â£5 (oh Ikea <3) is just amazing. Whats even more ridiculous is that people are actually paying this for a fleecey blanket!
I find the Slankets insane enough (and honestly, a little bit chavvy) but to find that there is one so you can snuggle up with your significant other nearly made my head explode. (Seriously, super uber smugness right there. Look at their smug little faces)
If anyone even tries to suggest buying one of these for me, I will hurt you.
(P.S. WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT? Apologies for the language, but its insane!)
