And while we’re happy that it’s lined, she’s basically wearing a gold metallic minidress underneath. We don’t know… it just doesn’t come together for us in the way we think it should.

That’s our take, anyway. Kittens may disagree – and are encouraged to show their work when doing so. In other words …
