The Hills Have Eyes 5

Thanks to Nicole M. over at the Facebook group, who posted this shirt with the following:

“I can’t believe this exists. New York & Company has failed us all with the ‘Winking Eye Graphic Tee.’”

This model is trying very hard to make this shirt seem normal.

Wink all you want, Overly-Enthusiastic Blonde Model.  No matter what you do, your breasts are still going to be more distracting.

I mean, the boobs are winking. In the past, the tag Boobs With Eyes has always applied to items where the pattern kind of creates the impression of eyes. This is the first time that a top has actually featured eyes for the wearer’s boobs. And not just any eyes. Coquettish eyes. Flirty eyes. Come-hither eyes. These eyes are hitting on men, women, and children.

Seriously, who on the New York & Co design team thought this would make for an awesome shirt? Who thought “What the graphic t-shirt market is missing is eyeboobs!” Why does this exist?

This t-shirt basically conveys the following: “These are my breasts! Look at how coy they are! But they’re still approachable.”  And you know what? If a t-shirt’s going to convey that,  I’d rather just have a shirt that says it. At least then there’d be some level of humor or self-awareness attached, as opposed to just giving your rack eyes, in which case, you’re playing coy about it in the least coy way possible.

    I would wear wear this shirt. I had a double mastectomy and for me this would be fun. Don’t be so quick to judge.

    If you like it, that’s great. I just think it was a very strange choice for New York & Co, especially for a mass market.

    Unfortunately, being quick to judge is kind of this blog. But I’m not judging people who wear the clothes (other than Ed Hardy) – just the brands.

    Interesting take! Saw this on a friend and went looking online, hoping I could still purchase one of own.. Only upon reading your blog did this idea even cross my mind. Maybe if someone has gigantic boobs and goes around pushing their chest out or getting right up in people’s faces but for me (a very petite gal) I don’t see this as sexual or come hither and I am pretty conservative with my attire. “hills have eyes” LOL dying. <3

    As these photos show, the winners, who were randomly selected, were over the moon to receive designer bags from such River Oaks District tenants as Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana, Giuseppe Zanotti, Dior, Roberto Cavalli, Stella McCartney, Etro and St. Nicola.
