While most viewers of this season of The Real Housewives of New York have likely been captivated by the growing tension between Dorinda, her evidently lusterless boyfriend John, and several of the other individuals in her crew of women who like to drink wine in the middle of the day, there’s been something else far more pressing that’s captured my attention: her love of long-sleeved gray tops, sometimes with flabbergasting design details.

Exhibit A: It took me awhile to figure out what was happening here, but notice that this otherwise normal cotton shirt is not adorned with extra fabric Ă  la elbow pads, but elbow cut-outs, that tend to shift around as she moves.


Exhibit B: Here we have another medium-length sleeved gray number, with a cowl neck. Normal. Alright.

Exhibit C. This v-neck sweater looked basic from the front.


BUT WAIT. Is that a back cut-out and maybe a zipper?

What the rest of the season will bring us, I can hardly stand to find out.
