|Make a Point of It Skirt from ModCloth|
Cynthia: I can’t believe it. A second chance! Two of Anthropologie’s skirts from last year – that I fell in love with but did not purchase – are now selling at ModCloth but under different designer names. At least I don’t think they’re knock-offs. I think that they are the … exact… same …skirts.
Marcy: Doppelganger skirts. I have one of those.
Cynthia: A skirt?
Marcy: No. A doppelganger.
Marcy smugly whips her tale.
Cynthia: I am not even going to ask.
Marcy (chuckling knowingly to herself): Yeah. You probably shouldn’t.
Cynthia: The one above is Modcloth’s Make a Point of It Skirt. The one below is Anthropologie’s Spearmint Stripe Skirt from last summer. Love the green stripes and that it’s knee length.

Cynthia: This next one is Modcloth’s Cirque du Soiree Skirt by Ryu.

Cynthia: Which was Anthropologie’s Striped Remy Skirt by Maeve last summer. Maeve is an in-house Anthropologie brand.

Marcy: Are you sure you’re speaking English? Or is this quirky human girl code?
Cynthia: It’s all quite confusing. I mean, are ModCloth versions knock-offs? Or are they the originals but are being sold under different companies? Who really is the designer then? Who, Marcy? Who? Is this some elaborate conspiracy to sell us old skirts? Are the skirts being moved down the retailer food chain? Will we see them at Old Navy in another year? Are ModCloth and Anthropologie – seeming enemies – incahoots?
Marcy: This is just another way for the fashion industry to make you crazy. Like inconsistent sizing, ’80’s mom jeans looking cool on teenage hipsters, and rayon.
Cynthia: I hate rayon. It makes me crazy.
Cynthia hunches over the computer pondering and tapping her foot.
Cynthia: I should just get the skirts since I think they are so cute and was bummed out that I missed out on them last summer. Maybe they won’t be at Old Navy next year.
Marcy: You’re such a fashion gambler.
