The (Un)Dress Code

Deep in the realm of comedy lies the concept of clothing for bloggers. I mean, like, if skyclad is good enough for Perez Hilton, it’s good enough for me. But that didn’t stop a company called Mod Cloth from coming out with the monstrosity they call the Blog Writer Dress:

Blog Writer Dress, otherwise known as You've Gotta Be Kidding Me, HoneyAs a full-time blog writer, you know that there’s no reason to sacrifice ease in the name of style when you’re swanning around for hours with your laptop in tow. This loose-fitting babydoll dress makes a perfect match of both with its functional button front, cuffed short sleeves, and dark grey trim. A star-like pattern adds to its charm, as do its useful pockets. Transition from typing at home to meeting up with your readers for cupcakes by adding a fitted blazer, grey tights and a high, sturdy pair of heels, and you’ll be feeling both comfortable and confident as you chat the night away.

Riiiiiiight. Look at this thing (perhaps between slightly parted fingers, while crouched in the fetal position). The only blogging this godforsaken tatersack is suitable for is nursing twins while liveblogging the Hee Haw Marathon. Thanks for alerting me to this…this THING, Gawker. I also note that they think not just that we should be wearing this (how does Nick Denton feel about that? I just don’t think these are Ryan’s colours) but that bloggers will pay $131.99 for the privilege.

Ridiculous! Everyone knows what real bloggers wear at work: Three Wolf Moon Footie PJs with Drop Seat they order off Amazon.com

    Tagged under “visions we do not need” is the clothing thought – “Hey! There are male bloggers as well!”

    Neither I nor the dress company ever said their clothing could only be worn by women. Feel free (at least, surprisingly free below the waist).

    Eek! With those strategically placed (functional!) buttons it looks like a Blogger Nursing Dress, with undertones of a Jane Austen heroine. Just ghastly.

    Handy for flashing people on Chatroulette, I suppose.
