Super Flare

  Cynthia struts into Marcy’s Nap Area grooving to a Bee Gees song, pretending she is John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

Cindy Disco 2 (1)

Cynthia:  In keeping with the groovy ’70’s theme we’ve got going on lately, I thought I would mention that flared jeans are EVERYWHERE right now, Marcy! I am way cool.Cynthia starts to dance the hustle, waving her disco ball in the air.

Marcy:  Yeah, in your dreams, Cindy. Now get that disco ball out of my face

Cynthia (hustle dancing):  It’s true. Bells are back, Baby!Marcy:  You mean you are actually and truly on trend right now? Prove it.

Cynthia:  Well, first off – look at one of our favorite bloggers- Jenni of GnomeLover – in flares. She has perfected the modern day easy breezy California Girl look that Christie Brinkley made so popular back in the ’70’s.

Marcy (sighing):  She’s so pretty.

Cynthia:  I know. And funny. And sweet. And a super talented writer.

And look at another favorite blogger – Roxy of Effortless Anthropologie – in flares. Love her New York take on bells. Super cool.

Marcy (gasping):  She’s hot.

Cynthia:  I know.  And chic. And fiercely intelligent and driven. She’s THE definitive resource on all things Anthropologie.

And here’s my first ever blogger I discovered years ago. The cheeky and stylish everygirl – Kendi of Kendi Everday – in flares.

Marcy:  She is sooooo cute.

Cynthia:  I know! Love her. Her blog is super famous.

Even celebrities are wearing flares like crazy.


Marcy:
 Yeah, what?Cynthia (triumphantly):  So I know what the moral of this story is.

Cynthia:  If you stubbornly wear an item of clothing for years and years, risking ridicule and taunts and family members who won’t walk down the street with you – eventually the tide will turn and you will be “IN”. Ha!

Cynthia resumes dancing the hustle with her disco ball.

Marcy:  I still won’t walk down the street with you. I’m a cat. Not a stupid dog.

European Cat Girl: Melisa Minca of MeowNEKI NEKO

MeowNEKI NEKO

Cynthia: I was scrolling through Effortless Anthropologie‘s Blogroll and noticed that a few European blogs had been added to the list. I clicked around, quite enthralled at the beautiful moodiness of most of the fashion photography, and by chance found Melisa Minca of MeowNEKI NEKO.

 

Melisa Minca of MeowNEKI NEKO

Cynthia:  Melisa Minca is a fashion blogger and photography student from Bratislava studying in Edinburgh. I am not sure why she named her blog after the English word for the sound a cat makes with the actual Japanese word for cat since most of her photos are of fashion and not cats. However –

Marcy:  Would you get to the point already!

Cynthia:  My point is that I find these two cat inspired photographs of Melisa Minca to be intriguing and beautiful.

Marcy:  I heart them too.

Marcy:  See Cindy, us European women are intriguing because we feel beautiful in our own skin. Unlike you American women, we are not obsessed with having perfect hair, a wrinkle free face, big sexy boobs, and big poofy lips.

Cynthia (insulted):  Hey! We’re not all like that! And anyway Marcy, you’re from Texas, not Europe.

Marcy:  I’M FROM PARIS.

Cynthia:  Yeah. Paris, Texas!

Marcy’s claws start to extend, her tail puffs up, and her ears point back.

Marcy:  See Cindy, us European women…

One hour later.


Marcy continues to lecture Cynthia about why European women are so cool. In retaliation, Cynthia puts on an herbal face mask, some teeth whitening strips, deodorant, and with a big smile says “Have A Nice Day” over and over and over.


Check back tomorrow to see who wins this really stupid and not very intriguing cat fight.

Fashion And … Teddy Bears?

Cynthia:  What do you think, Marcy? Should I submit this picture to Effortless Anthropologie‘s Reader Outfits for Sunday?

and Stone Seduction Jewelry Necklace

 

Marcy:  No. There’s a plant growing out of your head.

Cynthia:  Or this silly one?

 

 

Marcy:  No. You look insane.

Cynthia (suddenly doubtful):  Oh, I don’t know… sigh… those girls are so stylish over there, this outfit may not even be good enough. (perking up) You know, I could –

Marcy (interrupting):  Hey! Are you really posting another hundred pictures of yourself on MY blog again, Cindy?

Cynthia:  But Marcy, this is the fashion part of the blog. I have to post photos of me.

Marcy (indignant):  Why? Why you? Why not me?

Cynthia:  Isn’t it obvious?

Marcy:  What?

Cynthia (gently):  You don’t wear clothes.

Marcy (exasperated):  I know! I’m a cat!

Cynthia:  So what do you want me to do? I’ll post whatever you want.

Marcy:  Ummm… hmmm…  let’s see… gasp…Post a picture of me with my Teddy Bear.

Cynthia:  Okay!

Marcy:  And this poem that I wrote about him.

I love my cuddly friend,
Teddy Bear Ben.
He keeps me safe,
And he’s not an ape.

Cynthia gives Marcy a concerned look.

Marcy:  What? I’m scared of apes.

Cynthia hesitates before posting, looking at Marcy strangely.

Marcy:  POST IT!

Cynthia rolls her eyes but  presses Publish.
