Down the Rabbit Hole
Really, Jennifer? Really?
Although we do love the unintentional comedy of her little “USA,” as if just writing it will somehow transform Charlotte York here into Mary Lou Retton.
We’re sorry, but this, like so many other entries, was just laughable. The entire episode last night was a lesson in how “I’m going to stick to my own style” is almost always a huge mistake in this competition.
Taken on its own, it’s not horrible.
Wait. Let’s amend that.
THIS is horrible.
We suppose she thought that, since she was making a little Sunday brunch outfit, she needed some sort of costume-y fabric to take it to another level, but that shit is fugly and tacky.
On the other hand, the little cardigan is cute.
The little shiny around the collar was a nice touch and it – and the whole outfit – is well fitted and executed for the most part.
And the proportions are nice. We don’t lovelovelove the high-waisted skirt, but it’s in style and we don’t really mind it.
All in all, a cute little outfit for a girly-girl.
Except Jen, honey? SHE’S SUPPOSED TO BE AN ATHLETE MARCHING IN AN OLYMPIC PARADE. Hello? Alice? Arwen? Are you in there?
As Nina said, she has a very girly style and there’s nothing wrong with that, although personally her aesthetic really isn’t to our tastes. She’s not “Holly Golightly at a Dali exhibit” and there’s nothing remotely “surreal” about her work. To us, it looks more in the Kate Spade vein than anything else. Again, nothing wrong with that. Except, y’know, when you wind up making little twinsets for a bunch of girls that could beat the shit out of you.
