“Vice Principals” actress Busy Phillips is spotted leaving the SiriusXM Studios in New York City.
Attentive Bitter Kittens will know that we’ve had a bit of a problem with all of the mashup-dresses that seem to be on trend lately. We could attempt to define the term “mashup dress” for less attentive Kittens but why bother, when the very aptly-named-in-this-instance Busy is doing such a great job of providing the perfect visual aid?
There. Now you know. It’s a dress with too goddamn many prints all mashed together. And we’ve been bitching about them all year.
This is … kinda cute, no? Almost working for her? It helps that all of the prints are the exact same scale and that they share matching colors and motifs. In other words, these prints were clearly designed to go together. The longer we look, the less of a problem we have with it all – except for the applique, which really isn’t needed.
We’d have advised styling it differently, though. This only works if you keep things on the slightly twee side. We could get behind the idea of pink Mary Janes with this dress, but not with a big honkin’ lucite heel attached to them. And the bag definitely needed to be neutral; probably black. There’s too much going on with the dress to give the eye a bright red bag to look at. Hair: loose, sloppy bun.
Also: big kudos to her for putting this much work in for a radio appearance.
