Our recurring feature about those inexplicable manic fashion moments when all of a sudden we have to have a bizarre item of clothing. Immediately.
Marcy: And … here we go again.
Cynthia: Yes! All of a sudden I need something that I thought was ridiculous just a few months ago. All of a sudden. Out of nowhere. Inexplicably. I want … a top made out of velvet.
Cynthia: Or a dress.
Cynthia: Or a blazer.
Cynthia: Yes. Velvet is “it”.
penelope kitten (licking her chops): mmmm… velveeta.
Marcy (correcting her): Velvet.
penelope kitten (squeaking): not cheese?
Marcy: No. But it’s just as disgusting. Velvet is a cheap looking material that is popular on fancy little girl dresses, Prince back-up singers, and teenagers in the mid 1990’s.
penelop kitten (disappointed): oh.
Marcy: It’s meant to look luxe but it always ends up looking like you just stepped out of Loser-ville.
Cynthia: It’s really not that bad, guys. Right now it looks fresh and modern. And really great for a New Year’s Eve party.
Marcy: Said everyone back in 1995 as they reminisced about their childhood and listened to When Doves Cry. I’d cry too if I had to wear velvet.
Cynthia: Marcy, get out of your time warp. It’s almost 2016.
Marcy: Exactly my point.
Cynthia: Surely, you must agree that these new modern velvet clothes are tres chic.
Cynthia: Even the little girl dresses are sophisticated!
Cynthia: Surely, you must agree, Marcy!
Marcy (begrudgingly): If I must.
Marcy: Actually, I ldo like this velvet wingback chair.
penelope kitten: omg. a velveeta cheese chair. omg.
Penelope Kitten faints from excitement.
Marcy: Wow. Poor P. It really stinks to be on a diet.
