She’s wacky Aunt Mary-Louise and there’s no point in fighting it anymore, we suppose.

But fight it we will. For the sake of STYLE. Looking at that jubilant and playful facial expression and knowing how beloved she is, we feel like we’re peeing on a landmark every time we criticize her, but we’ll try to muddle through one more time. For the bitchier of our Bitter Kittens.

It’s really hard not to see that dress as a bathrobe, for one. We really don’t like the shape and we’re pretty sure we don’t like the print either. Pinks and yellows together can wreak havoc on a pale lady’s skin tone. We could be talked into seeing this print in a different shape and style for her, but right now, it’s reading “Nana’s bathrobe” from ten feet away. Then there’s the earrings. And you know what? We love them, but they are so very wrong for a dress like that. You’re asking way too much of the eye to try and take both that dress and those earrings in at the same time. Save them for a funkier jeans-and-sweater look sometime, Meryl. And continuing in the wrong-for-that-dress vein are the boots. Put on said jeans and sweater and they’d be fine, though. The necklace is so wrong that cannot even.

The bag’s cute. We’ll give her that.
