ModCloth Finally Loses Its Mind With Cat Fashion

Cynthia:  I do believe this cat bustier from Modcloth marks the beginning of the end of Cat Fashion.

Marcy:  Oh my gosh!

Cynthia:  I know. It is very startling.

Marcy:  That is so wrong.

Cynthia:  Modcloth has been the hub of cat fashion for ages. They sell cat themed everything – t-shirts, blouses, skirts, mugs, wall hooks, socks, dish towels, books, tights, jewelry, etc. and etc. and etc. Modcloth girls love their cats!

But this. This is off the wall bonkers. Even slightly disturbing although I can’t put my finger on exactly why.

Marcy:  I’ll tell you why.  A black bustier is sexy. Those cartoon cats look like kids toys. Childish + sexy = disturbing.

Cynthia:  Possibly. I think they were trying to knock off this look by Helmut Lang from 1989.

Marcy:  They didn’t succeed.

Cynthia:  Nope.  The Helmut Lang cat suit is sexy and edgy. Even cheeky. It’s an editorial look, beautifully hand crafted, and not meant to be worn outside the way the Modcloth one is. I really wonder if this cat trend in clothing has finally gone too far and will begin to dissipate this year? Or, if it will go on forever?

Marcy:  Oh… it will go on forever. I am a cat and I am always in style.

    Anyone wearing this should be prepared for the questions "may I pet your kitties?"

    No. Just oh so no. That is so very very very bad. Awful. Who the heck would buy that? Oh my gosh! No! You have shocked me out of going to sleep. Ahhh! My eyes!

      Oh no! Hope you finally went to sleep. And did not have nightmares!
      I am glad you had the same reaction. I thought I might have gone too far with my assessment of it. But it is pretty darn scary!
      Hope you are have an awesome weekend!

      Yes, I went to sleep. I had nightmares, but not about that. Although who knows what deep dark disturbing thoughts that top induced in my mind… ; )

      Have a great Tuesday!

      I am sure it was the cat bustier. It is way deeper and darker than previously thought. Seriously. I can't wait until it's for sale on the Modcloth site so I can track its sales and reviews!
      Pleasant dreams tonight!
