Lady, can I hold that for ya?

March 16, 2009

This is THE hot new look in women’s fashion, but I see flaws.

I sent my Oddly Enough Consumer Team out to test this dress, and here are some of their comments:

  • It’s uncomfortable when you put ice cubes in a drink and then put your hand back
  • Hailing a taxi is tricky, but usually successful
  • Tough for left-handed chicks to dial their cellphone
  • It’s so awkward when Grandpa asks you to help move his sofa
  • On a date, much confusion over whether a guy made it to first or second base

Finally fashion for the breast feeding crowd.

I understand the dress is reversible so that it can be worn over either shoulder and turned inside out so that it really is four dresses in one. Thank god for casual Fridays!

You know, Bill raises an interesting point. Perhaps the model just put the dress on backwards….
