Jezebel says “Cate Blanchett is a Creamcicle” that is a compliment?!


I am scrolling through Jez this afternoon and I land on this. I am totally befuddled. I love Cate Blanchett and generally find her fashion sense impeccable, BUT what is this outfit? I am sure my mawmaw wore a similar house dress when she canned beans. I do not like it and I can’t decide if the Jez writers are being smarmy or actually believe they’re paying a compliment. What do you think? More importantly: would you wear it?!

My name is Autumn and in my current incarnation I am a Features writer for the Charleston Gazette. I love fashion & step to the beat of my own inner design-team. My parents once told me, "You can be anything you want to be when you grow up." I misunderstood I thought they said, "You can be EVERY thing you want to be." and I've spent my life trying it all. I like to design and sew some of my own clothes and I enjoy playing with new makeup and I spend way too much time perusing fashion and DIY blogs. I also homestead so I am always reusing and repurposing things for fashion's sake.
