What are they selling? Flower crowns, flower crowns, and more flower crowns.

What are they selling? Body chains, maxi skirts, rompers, metallic temporary tattoos, and a shirt with palm trees on it. 

How obviously are they pandering? They have some cute clothes, but their marketing, like the above ad -- which seems to suggest that girls are too vain to, you know, care who's actually playing -- rubs us the wrong way.
