A crowded store at Christmas time and all the dressing rooms are taken. So what’s a shopping-deprived young lady to do? Dressing rooms? We don’t need no stinkin’ dressing rooms. This young lady just proceeded to try on new clothes in front of a mirror of a clothing store at Tyson’s Corner Center in Northern Virginia, even though that mirror was also in full view of all the holiday shoppers walking by the store in the mall. Unusual? Not at all says one store manager, who asked not to be identified. “Hell, I’ve seem them strip all the way down to nothing to try on bikinis,” she says. “The amazing thing is that nobody really pays that much attention to it. Modesty is a thing of the past.” Outside the store, a group of young men sat on a mall bench and watched the show inside. Sometimes, they would cheer. When the young lady turned her back to the window to try on a new bra, they groaned. Ah, the joys of Christmas.
