Marcy and Cynthia discuss the timeless fashion trend of menswear as womenswear…
Cynthia: Hey Marcy! Take a look at the HBO poster for the second season of Doll & Em.
Marcy jogs over to the computer.
Marcy: I love Doll & Em!
Cynthia: I know! It’s the best show I’ve seen about female friendship. Ever. So funny and quirky and silly and heartbreaking and affirming. I can’t wait to watch Season Two.
Marcy takes a look at the photo above.
Marcy: Gasp. They’re dressed like Annie Hall! Tres chic!
Cynthia: And that’s a very difficult look to get right.
Marcy: Very difficult. If your vest and blouse aren’t fitted perfectly, or you don’t have the right attitude, you end up looking sloppy or costume-y.
Cynthia: Diane Keaton created the Annie Hall look herself, you know. She wore her own clothes during filming. Apparently, the costume designer thought she was crazy, but Diane knew what she was doing.
Marcy: She’s so cute. Do you think she’d let me be her kitty? We could wear matching vests and ties and drink champagne together.
Cynthia: Hey! You’re my kitty! And I can wear a vest and a tie and drink champagne with you! I saw that Alexa Chung has an awesome vest for sale at Anthropologie.
Cynthia (enthusiastically): And, we can steal Freddy’s skinny ties. We’ll look just like Diane Keaton as her Annie Hall character.
Marcy: I don’t know. I’m not sure you can pull it off. I think you have to be Diane Keaton or be British like Doll and Em and Alexa.
Cynthia: Hmpf. You have no faith in me, Marcy. No faith. I’m quite hurt.
Marcy (doubtfully): I guess you could … I don’t know … try.
Cynthia: Anyway, Diane is still creating iconic looks. Check out this hysterical photo of a Something’s Gotta Give themed bachelorette party. (I found it on A Cup of Jo)
Marcy (wrinkling her nose): Oh. No. I like the Annie Hall look better.
Cynthia: Yeah. Me too. Turtlenecks make me claustrophobic.
Just then Penelope Kitten bops into the office to see what’s up.
penelope kitten: hi hi. i hear we’re having champagne in a closet with a scared Diane Kitten.
