Whenever Beefy tries to explain his distaste for the dog skirt, I become confused. So, I asked him to write it down.
You know those shirts people wear that give the illusion of your body being the statue “David”?
Or those Christmas sweaters that have three dimensional objects hanging off of them, or make noise or whatever?
That’s kind of how I view the dog skirt. I’m all for patterns and letting your freak flag fly (like with the Fugly dress, which I love), but I feel that the difference is how literal it is in execution… or too obvious. Give me an abstract pattern every day. It can be as loud and crazy as you want it to be…
Oh.. and wearing a skirt that forces me to stare to figure out what in the heck kind of dog is in that one picture on your left knee just makes me feel weird.
I get it now. Beefy doesn't like trompe l'oeil clothing or other eye foolery. I, on the other hand, love messing with perception.
