So, the spring couture shows happened with nary a post-collapse dictator gown or post-climate change warrior queen frock. Not a single standy-uppy collar of doom or strappy, hardware-laden unitard.

I’ve always envied Colonel Wilma Deering and her snazzy future jumpsuits. Not the camel toe aspect of it, but they were so shiny and cheerful. And it’s an entire outfit in a single piece! It’s the ease of a dress and the freedom of a pant AT THE SAME TIME. Not that I’m a big pants fan (which we’ll get to in minute).

If there’s one thing I hate, it’s pants. And lowest-common-denominator network comedy. And squirrels. I’m frequently galavanting around our apartment in a shirt and underthings (or a shirt and tights in the winter) because pants? Constricting. They’re only good for keeping pantyliners in place.
