Kim Kardashian participated in the popular-yet-sometimes-annoying Throwback Thursday hashtag on Instagram yesterday, and actress Rose McGowan took it as an opportunity to take a clever shot.
Kim posted the below photo of herself posed on top of a blinged-out Range Rover wearing a pink Juicy Couture tracksuit along with the caption: “#TBT I miss you boo“
Rose McGowan later reposted the photo and added a caption of her own:
And a big farewell to hideous terry & velour Juicy Couture. Conspicuous consumption never ends well.
While it looks like a superficial comment in reference to Kim’s choice of attire — there is an ambiguous message there.
“Conspicuous consumption” could easily be referring to the retail aspect with the likes of once-popular brands that have fallen from grace (i.e. Juicy Couture, Ed Hardy, etc) but also to the world’s obsession with Kim and the Kardashian family.
