Scene: Somewhere in Northampton, at my friend Randy’s handsome apartment. It’s after midnight and rain is pouring down.
Visiting Friend of Randy’s From NYC: Uh, is…what are they wearing? Why so many ribbons?
Me: It’s Goth Pirate. French Goth Pirate. It’s huge. It’s very Peter Pan and Wendy.
[author’s note: Peter Pan and Wendy get skinny jeans, that is…]
VFRNYC: They look they escaped from Les Misérables. Why are there so many ribbons?
Me: That’s part of it.
