Kittens, we have a serious question for you all.
Well. “Serious” in the sense that we’re not joking and want an answer; not “serious” in the sense of having to do with important or weighty matters. After all, we’re talking about this:

And here’s our question: At what point are we allowed to start criticizing this stuff?
What we mean is, when can we stop saying “Well, at least it’s not twee as fuck. We should just give her positive reinforcement because she’s dressing like a grownup for once?” That was going to be the entire gist of this post, but then we realized two things:
- We’d said that about her before; more than once.
- We cannot honestly say we like this look. In fact, we think we hate it.
At first glance we were all “DISCO FAB avec EPIC BITCHFACE, GIRL! GO ON WITH YOURSELF!” But then we realized that’s way too much gold for one little blonde white girl to handle. And then we realized that the shape of this dress does nothing for her; obscuring the shapes of both her bust and her hips. And THEN we realized that it had some ugly sort of illusion netting triangle on the bust and that’s when we said to ourselves, “You know what? To hell with positive reinforcement. This frock’s ugly.”
So we guess we answered our own question. Thank you for coming on this journey with us, Kittens.
And hey, killer shoes. She got that part right.
