Modern Day Vintage

 

Cynthia: So of course I had to share another vintage photo of a girl posing with her cat. It is #ThrowbackThursday after all.

Marcy:  Of course you did. You’re obsessed with these photos.

Cynthia:  Kind of. This one makes me want to put on a romantic white blouse like this one for $410 that (of course) sold out immediately at Anthropologie.

Marcy:  As noted in a previous post, you have a serious problem.

Cynthia:  I know.  These two are more reasonable and just as pretty.

Marcy:  Okay so you do know it’s not 1985 anymore.  Right? Cindy?

Cynthia:  And grab a cat.

Marcy:  Grab a dead cat you mean.

Cynthia:  No, I don’t mean that. What do you mean?

Marcy:  That’s a taxidermy cat.

Cynthia:  No way.

Marcy:  Take a good look, Cindy. That is one dead stuffed cat.

Cynthia takes another look at the photo.

And then another look.

And another.

Marcy:  Sorry to burst your bubble.

Cynthia:  You’re not sorry.

Marcy:  I know.

Costume Design By… Marcy?

Postcard for Telenovela Wives of Pancho Villa
Design by Alex Amerri


Cynthia:  Okay, Marcy. We got asked to do costumes for the play I am co-producing for the Hollywood Fringe Festival, Telenovela Wives of Pancho Villa, a new play by Jeffery Atik.

Marcy:  You?

Cynthia:  Us!

Marcy:  You’ve never done that in your life. You don’t know how to operate a sewing machine. You are a fashion disaster most of the time. What’s wrong with them? Don’t they have eyes?

Cynthia (nonchalantly):  Apparently, if you are the only woman on the producing team and have a semi-fashion blog, people will assume you know fashion stuff.

Marcy:  And you said yes?!

Cynthia:  WE said yes. Or, I said yes for you. It will be your name in the program. Costume Design by Marcy Very Much.

Marcy: Don’t they know I’m a cat?!

Cynthia:  Oh yeah. They think it’s cool. I figured we could document our progress on the blog.

Marcy:  You mean our panic.

Cynthia (brightly):  That too! So we will have thirteen actors to outfit in 1914 attire. We want the women to look sexy and beautiful and powerful and –

 

 

Marcy (panicking):  Thirteen actors in period dress?!! What’s the budget?

Silence.

Marcy (now screaming):  What’s the budget?!

Cynthia:  There is no budget.

Marcy faints.

Cynthia (cheering):  Hollywood Fringe Festival – here we come!

Marcy is still passed out.

Cynthia:  It’s okay Marcy! We can handle it!

Cynthia faints too.

Cynthia finds Marcy completely absorbed on the computer.

Cynthia:  Watcha doing Marcy cat cat cat?

Marcy:  Curating my art collection.

Cynthia leans over to see that Marcy is on her Pinterest page and is deleting every pin.

Cynthia:  Aaaaaack! That’s MY art collection. Why are you deleting my pins?

Marcy:  Too many cats.

You’ve got illustrations of cats,
photo art of cats,
Vintage photos of girls with their cats,
Street art with cats,
Fashion with cats,
Cats, cats, cats.

Too many.

Cynthia:  But the whole point of a Pinterest page is to accumulate super nifty pics of a subject you love. And mine is cats featured in fascinating art, cool photography, and fun fashion.


Cynthia:
  I’ve got pics of you on Instagram!Marcy:  You only need pics of me.

Marcy:  I saw that. You also have pics of Penelope Kitten and random street cat art. I deleted those too.

Cynthia:  What?!

Marcy:  I don’t like your use of filters.

Cynthia:  That’s the whole point of Instagram! Creating cool photos with filters!

Marcy:  You’re not very good at it.

Cynthia:  I just started it!

Marcy flips over to her Instagram account.

Marcy:  Oh. darn. They didn’t delete.

Cynthia wrestles the computer mouse out of Marcy’s paws and proceeds to protect her Pinterest and Instagram accounts.

Marcy:  You can change your passwords but you can’t change your pants.

Cynthia gives Marcy a funny look.

Marcy:  You know what I mean.

Cynthia:  This time I actually don’t.

Check out our new Instagram page for original photos of cat happenings around Los Angeles.

That is, if Marcy doesn’t play art curator again. That’s MY job.
