Margaret Cho Wants You to Ditch Your Handbag and Wear Her Jumpsuit Instead

Margaret Cho is a hilarious lady, but the comedienne is getting serious about fashion design, and destroying the tyranny of the handbag.

Margaret Cho is selling “The Solitaire,” a jumpsuit she created to double as a purse with its whopping six pockets. “I hate carrying a purse, I’m so not like that,” she says in the accompanying informational video on the piece. “I wanted people to do anything and go at a moment’s notice.” The hooded black twill jumpsuit has a gold zipper, ribbed cuffs and a smocked waist. It looks like something you can easily slip into, which we assume was Cho’s goal from the start. 

The piece, which is on sale at 10% off for $169.20 (down from a still-pricey $188), comes in quite a large range of sizes, from size X-Small to XX-Large, so plus-sized and petite fans alike can rock Cho’s latest. 

Cho crowdfunded the project and reached her goal earlier this month. But you’ll be waiting a bit if you’re looking to order the piece – the jumpsuit won’t ship until July. Sure, it skews a little janitorial, but throw on the right pair of heels and it’s a completely different jumpsuit. Hey, if socks and sandals can be chic…

You can purchase your very own Solitare jumpsuit at Betabrand

Miss Dalloway is a fan of the cover and simply describes it as “gorgeous” inside the thread.

“Nice one! Scarlett looks great and I like the presence of yellow,” adds Srdjan.

Also full of enthusiasm is MyNameIs: “Love it. Scarlett looks amazing. And I love the yellow and just the overall hues on the cover. It’s so warm and inviting.”

Sharing the same sentiments, dodencebt posts, “Absolutely gorgeous, I’ve missed sexy Scarlett lately.”

“YES! Exactly what I was going to say. I’m really glad she isn’t sporting her weird buzzed pixie here, the feathery hair and attention to her breasts oozes the sex appeal that’s she famous for,” HeatherAnne agrees.

But the cover fails to sit well with everyone. “It’s the March issue! I wish they’d have used models on the cover or at least a more engaging image. She looks nice but the cover is so bland in my opinion,” notes kokobombon.

Do you feel the same way? Read the review of W‘s jam-packed March 2015 issue and join the discussion here.
