This ultra-unfashionable quilted winter housework skirt includes a charming li'l kitty cat to take the chill out of cleaning and chores.
Just like every dark cloud has a silver lining, this ugly, industrial, dare-we-day Soviet style skirt has a warm and fleecy lining. It also has a cute li'l stylized kitten peeking out from within, allowing wintry housewives (or house-hubbies) to “always be with their favorite cat” as they do the daily housework.
Hey, don't jump down our throats, we're just quoting the ad copy that depicts a female model and describes the quirky quilted skirt as being “not too long and easy to move, making housework easy.” Great, now we know the perfect holiday gift for our soon-to-be-ex SO!
Anyway, a little context – the skirt was designed in Japan for use in Japanese homes, which are notoriously drafty and poorly insulated compared to houses in Europe and North America. It was NOT designed to be worn outside the house, which explains its resemblance to the LINING of winter coats.
Also, there's really no reason why men can't wear the skirt, which features an adjustable waist from 75-100cm (29.5 to 39 inches) secured by a line of robust snap buttons. Still a better look than doing the chores wearing only boxer briefs, amiright?
Other specifications of note include 100% polyester construction (inner and outer) recommended to be hand washed and hang dried. The skirt is approximately 60cm (almost 24 inches) from waist to hem, and it comes in one color combo only – charcoal gray with a white fleece lining.
As a fashionable clothing item, this skirt fails mightily but we'll remind you again that in this case, function trumps form. Plus, you've got that wee bashful kitteh to keep you company while you dutifully swiffer the floors and windex the windows. Last but not least, there's always Secret Santa.
