I’ve heard of taking life’s lemons and making lemonade, but the award for making the best of a bad situation has to go to the women from the polygamous sect referred to as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Some of the women from the sect, which made headlines for having hundreds of children removed from a compound in Texas, have now started an online store where you can purchase the latest in FLDS fashion.


Where did the idea come from exactly? Well, the women were expected to make clothing for the children who were taken into custody, but after the children were returned to their families, the women decided to continue to make clothing–this time for profit.
Now anyone is just a click away from buying a “Princess dress” in one of several different colors or you can purchase some fashionable overalls. But don’t expect to find any bargains here. Some of the clothes are pretty pricey– $50-$60 for a basic garment.
On the other hand, as a fellow Idol Chatter blogger pointed out t me, it’s never too early to start shopping for Halloween costumes.
