Crafts for Cat Ladies in Training

This has to be one of my favorite “spin” descriptions of a Forever 21 garment, ever.

Crochet Knit Shawl: $15.84

“Snag granny’s style with this tiered crochet shawl.”

Man, oh, man – if I had a nickle for every time I rifled through my grandmother’s closet looking for something to wear on a first date.

I can smell the old lady funk coming off this thing through the computer screen. It looks like the product of a junior college class called, “Crafts for the Forever Alone” or “Crafts for Women who Have just Plain Given up and said ‘Fuck it. I’m just going to be with my cats.'”

Well, let me tell you something – don’t kid yourself, even CATS would you judge you for wearing this. Especially cats.

Forever 21, Hiss.

    Maybe this can be pulled off, but I doubt it. It just looks like a bunch of ginger snaps strung together.

  3. I don’t……hate this.
    I do own multiple cats, so there’s that.

      Victoria – you’re frigging adorable and I’ll bet this would look really cute on you. With a pale white slip dress or something equally soft and girly.

      • You’re quite adorable yourself! And I’m stoked I found you on Twitter. By found, I mean I stopped being lazy and looked on the righthand side of this page.

    you make my day.

  5. I’ve declared “fuck it, I’m just going to be with my cats” and I still wouldn’t wear this monstrosity!

      there have definitely been worse. it could be pulled off though, i think 🙂

        You guys are right – there have been worse. I still can’t get over the description. Who looks at their grandmothers shawl and thinks, “Hells yea. I’m wearing that to run ERRANDS.”

    That’s why they have to dangle cat toys from the neck. Poor felines get tricked into coming close and then BAM! It’s too late. You’re trapped in the confines of wool shingles. It’s animal abuse really….

      Yeah – a lot of the accessories at Forever 21 right now look like cat toys. It’s as if they WANT young girls to be mauled in the face by felines.
