They can ruin a good night kiss, torpedo chance encounters and even leave you stranded. Those mystery fabrics with strange sounding names and even stranger looking qualities can often have unintended consequences. But now there's hope for breaking the cycle of dependency on misguided fashions!
Not really, but definitely check out Cotton Incorporated's clever fabric spoof site, MysteryFabric.com for a fun stint in Mystery Fab Rehab.
In addition to interactive fashion victim files, caught-on-tape videos, a Hall of Shame of dubious mystery fabric developers, "fadlib" e-cards, downloads and even an opportunity to post a personal mystery fabric horror story, a virtual counselor will guide the fabric-challenged through a three-step process of finding life after mystery fabrics by helping the misguided get smart, get rid of the offending fabrics, and finally, get fashion right.
Wanna recover? Here's how:
GET SMART In four educational vignettes, clueless Susie's mystery fabric glamour pants meet the harsh reality of a clothes dryer, her "illuminating" dress causes cab hailing havoc, she finds fun with fuzz instead of romance, and we learn why fashion is meant to be seen & not heard. Enlightened Jane, however, enjoys her crisp and clean smelling cotton sheets, is a taxi driver's dream, and, of course, finds love.
CLEAN UP YOUR FABRIC ACT As no rehab is complete without catharsis, MysteryFabric.com provides four fun options for ditching the offending items that have wreaked havoc on one's life: launching the item into a garbage truck with a sling shot, destroying it via shredder, "cheming" it with a selection of chemicals in a beaker, or death by hair dry as it slowly cooks into a shrivel.
GET SARTORIALLY STRAIGHT With the mystery fabrics gone, they offer up nine different categories of occasions and situations to find a selection of chic outfit options.
