Victoria Beckham

 

Is it just me, or does the hat remind you a bit too much of this?

The Tee Isn’t the Only Thing That’s Twisted

There is a T-shirt that is causing practically every parent in the United States to go into paroxysms of outrage.

I present the Twisted Twee Tassel Tee:

You would be correct if you thought those were the type of tassels that most commonly dangle from the chesticles of burlesque performers.

In an interview with ParentDish,  UK-based designer Suzi Warren defended her creation thusly:

“There is nothing very sexy about a baggy, lap neck, long sleeved t- shirt for a 6-month-old. So by embellishing this style of garment with printed nipple tassels, the result is not that the baby becomes sexualized by the tassels, but that the tassels are made benign and silly by the baby. In fact the more inert, innocent and unaware the infant is, the more ludicrous the contrast becomes.”

Call me uptight, but somehow, I’m failing to see the irony.

What I do see is someone who seems perfectly willing to part fools with their dollars.
