Rags to riches

When I was in middle school, I was obsessed with United Colors of Benetton. I longed for the belts made of silk neckties and the dark blazers in the store, but I was too small to fit into anything. I probably can't pull off these rags in my hair like I can with the necktie belts, but I'm still fascinated with Benetton.
Truth be told, I never know what I can pull off from Benetton until I try it on in the store (and the sales associates always seem to love to drown me in piles and piles of "suggestions").

Yet, the store is always my first stop at the local shopping center. Perhaps it's because Benetton does such a great job with incorporating ethnically-distinct models into its ad campaigns or because Benetton's has such a controversial advertising history -- or maybe it's because I just can't get enough of their rich colors at very affordable prices.
