Fugchelle Williams


I hate to fug a girl who’s just going out for brunch with her man and some friends, but the circumstance is somewhat extreme. Jason here clearly tried to spruce it up a little…

… and Michelle seems to be wearing the pajama top of an older lady who holes up in her living room with her hundred-strong doll collection, plays “It’s A Small World” on a loop, and tries to weave them friends out of whatever textiles aren’t hidden under all her hoarded newspapers, TV Guide back issues, and old grocery coupons. It also doesn’t seem to button south of Dawson’s Creek,  which means things could get indecent up in this joint if she takes a rogue step. Oh, Michelle. I know vintage is the word of the day, but seriously, hipster brunch-casual is Anthropologie’s bread and butter. Let them help you. It’s okay. It might even feel good.

    This reminds me too much of my grandma’s housecoats. Do not want!

      Really. If that thing had long sleeves, there’d be a balled-up, used tissue tucked in the cuff. I wonder if she has some butterscotch candies in her purse?

        *snort* My noni did the balled up tissue thing!

          Ha, seems like they all did!

          Double snort! Nanny was the one with the housecoat and the 24 hour hairnet (no, she was not a cafeteria lady) and the bottle of liquid saccharine on her kitchen table. Wow, that stuff was gross. Grandma was the one with the tissue in her sleeve, the polyester skirts and the grasshopper keds.

          Thanks for the memories!

          Jason looks great and svelte too. Michelle needs to step away from the housecoats.

      Ok. With apologies — I am calling it. Pregnant.

        That was my first thought too.

        And for someone who’s apparently quite a tall guy, you’d think Jason could find some pants that aren’t pooling around his ankles like that. Although the hi-tops aren’t helping on that score.

    Yes. A housecoat is not a dress. No matter how cute the print, it’s all right there in the name: House. Coat. Not going-out-in-public-to-brunch coat.

    I love her but just can’t stand her personal style 99% of the time. This is tragic. Totally grandma shut in.

    Heather, of course you are correct about housecoats. However, please don’t diss the doll collectors. Not that I am one. Oh, okay, I am one and you’ve hurt my feelings.

    but i swoon for her shoes.
    casual, and a tiny bit chunky – but not veering into cloven hooves of hell.

      I swoon for her DATE. He just gets dishier. :^). And he did manage to clean up other than his bedhead. He’s got hard hair I think. Hard to style without a lot of grease.

        i have this exact hair – i feel his pain. and while i have personally resigned myself to growing it long and putting it up and out of the way every day, i am relieved that this solution has never occurred to him. go grease!

    I agree with jellybean. Shoes – yes. Smile – YES! Housecoat – NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Oh, I think she looks cute.

    But she looks so happy! They look so happy! I’ve taken these two crazy kids into my crusty old heart, and as far as I’m concerned she can wear whatever she wants.

    My mother and aunt used to wear those things in the 60s – they were called “dusters” because you did your dusting in them.

    I don’t think that even Cloris Leachman would wear one of those!!!!

    If her dress were more fitted or even belted, it would be cute. As for him, I’m a little bummed if that’s his version of spruced.

      I agree. I totally adore Jason Segal and think the two of them are adorable together, but c’mon already. They’re both dressed like slobs. He’s wearing a shirt, jeans and high tops. Big deal. And as for Michelle, well, I love her sunglasses and her bag, but that cover-up or whatever the heck it is is just repugnant.

    Michelle’s dress is a tragedy, yes, but what I would like to know is what the HELL is going on with Jason’s head-suit? He needs to wash that, OMG.

    Dreadful outfit, but I can overlook that because she looks genuinely happy. No pursed lips, serious actress smile for the cameras – that drove me bananas! Happy and in love can help an otherwise fugly frock be ignored.

    Girl, you are in trouble when Cloris Leachman is dressing 25 years younger than you.

    They both look like they escaped from the gated retirement village.

    The romance is over.. how much more can he stand.. housecoat in public.. almost as bad as Katie’s suede booties.. Ready to dump him in 3.. 2..

    I feel fairly confident it’s a skirt and shirt and I’d really like to discuss why and how that skirt exists or maybe if she’s wearing it sideways?

    First, it’s good to see her happy! Second, I think that’s exactly the same outfit my 96 year old grandma was wearing the last time I went to visit. FUG!

    Oh dear, I actually like this in a crazy, inexplicable sort of way. I think they’re adorable!

    I don’t know…I have such a crush on them as a couple, I can forgive any sartorial transgressions. He is SO my fantasy boyfriend now, just love the way he has formed a little family with Michelle and her daughter.

    I’m with ceecee. Jason Segal is the most lovable person ever and seems to be just what poor Michelle needs. I’ve never seen her smile so much. My husband is terrible with names so we were calling her “Sad Actress” around the house but now he will just have to learn her, and that’s great. Yes, this outfit is terribad but she almost looks like she’s coming in for a fistbump up there and that makes her adorable despite her grammy’s jammies.

    I’m seriously not on board with Michelle’s recent glut of sack-shaped dresses with high – often round – necklines. With the pixie hair cut, it’s all too cutesy, it’s like she wants to be a 5 year old girl.

    Okay, I am glad she is happy and I am glad to see her so smiley and content with Segel. However, what IS that dress/housecoat? It appears to have ancient Egyptians and Egyptian motifs all over it. I like quirky, fun prints, but that thing she is wearing is just plain UGLY.

    I think I might like the print, but yeah, definitely not liking or even understanding the baggy housecoat cut. But I concur with the shoe love. They do hit a great balance. It helps tremendously that she has extremely enviable dainty ankles. I don’t know how well those shoes would work with an average ankle (you know, not a cankle but also not a willowy wisp of a joint).

    I think this could be cute with a belt… or maybe I’m just biased because like the rest of America I am totally rooting for them to last forever.

    That is hideous. You wear that at home while watering the plants on the back porch, but not out in public, and certainly not when you are a famous person who’s often photographed.

    This is what my grandmom and old aunts called a “housedress”–hideous, Michelle.

    Housecoats are not for outside! They belong in the house.

    She’s so far off the mark, she’ll never get it. She always looks the same. Always blah, always trying too hard to be retro. Meh. Boring.

    I believe she is with child.
