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.
