Ladyfriends, beware of this High Neck Poncho by Gracia. I was nearly lured into its nest by the super-low special happy hour price of $29.99 on iDeeli. That is, until I actually looked at the dress (or poncho...without pants...whatever) and realized that it is not really outerwear at all.
In fact, it is a size-2 Triceratops.
Amirite? The yolking, the pleats, the "please don't find out I taped that episode of 'I'm Secretly Pregnant' while I wore this dress-poncho to the Piggly Wiggly last week" design. All of it screams Cretaceous Style.
Nina Garrrthia would probably go on and freaking on about the pintucks and whatnot. But that does not mean shit when the off-the-rack reptilia among us don't have our giant thigh and hoof-like thingies concealed a bit more.
I do not care if this "designer" is hot on the club scene (ohmygoodness, that was almost an historically incorrect caveman reference) or you cannot pass up an under-$30 deal, no woman -- whether on a date or in court or at work or trying to outrun a pack of little bastard Diplodocus (doci?) -- ever, ever wants to emphasize her giant bony frill.
Now that we've covered the dresscho, someone please tell me why this Gracia creation isn't also extinct.
