We would only wish these bangs upon our very worst enemy.
Like the girl from the elevator who stole our haircut.

Top: Michael Kors, Spring 2007. Bottom: Kara Janx, Fall 2006.

Notice any similarities?

mini mumu

2006-11-20T11:28:58.276-05:00

The mumu = the cockroach of the garment world (ie. the dress that just just won't die). Reinterpreted as a cute little thing by Diane Von Furstenburg.

DVF SS07

Wear it only if:
a) you have the rack of a stick figure;
b) you have a Get Out of Jail FREE card, issued by the fashion police.

indie rock princess

2006-08-06T20:34:31.546-05:00

In your next incarnation, you shall be born into indie rock royalty. We've already chosen your wardrobe; the only missing elements are the recording studio and the legions of hip fans that feel like they're dying on the inside.

granny puts her foot down

2007-01-30T16:59:34.883-05:00

We love Chloe just as much as the next girl, but pray tell, what's going on with the shoes for Fall? Last season's Mary Janes were dangerously, fabulously crafty, but this season's lot are just dangerously close to the year 1890. Quick - somebody page Dr. Scholl, and stat! Something has gone terribly wrong at Chloe from the ankle down.

Do not try and tell us that these shoes were inspired by anything other than the shoe closet in the orthopedic ward of Greener Pastures Nursing Home. We know it, Phoebe Philo knows it, and Phoebe Philo's crochety granny knows it, too.

every girl needs a little pucci

2006-08-06T12:15:49.680-05:00

Pucci F/W 2006 is the first collection that has managed to get us hot and bothered in anticipation of the Autumnal Equinox. How very clever of Matthew Williamson to design a bright and relatively breezy collection; it's far easier to think about buying fall clothes in the middle of the summer when the vetements in question are fluid and colorful.

We are so loving:
The wooly little caps
The rich, opaque tights
The bright mini/black tights combo
The silvered grey/transcendental purple combo
The black tights/black shoes combo
The long scarf/fluid mini combo
The Matthew Williamson/Pucci combo

back in 5 mins

2006-08-02T17:42:22.640-05:00

No, dolls, I haven't died. Got married; it was lovely.

Back in 5 mins.

pimp my bride

2006-07-03T20:30:17.903-05:00

Last season's catwalk darling, Coco Rocha, pimps it for bridal designer Alfred Sung. Work those pearls, dollface.

Out trolling for model girlfriends again, my darling?

if you must

2006-05-17T11:34:59.316-05:00

If you must do the short-shorts thing this season, do it like Donatella and balance them with deliciously fluid, long sleeves. Wearing a bra is always advisable.

samurai surprise

2006-05-08T20:40:03.563-05:00

Scarlett Johanssen's ensemble for the Costume Institute Gala: executed with the precision of a ninja, and the discipline of a samurai. Behold the earrings that ring and glow like temple lanterns, shoes that are as austere and sexy as a table set for sushi, a single finger set with a diamond cocktail ring. And the dress! The dress: pop-art bling samurai surprise kimono.

ps. Stella, darling, you look gorgeous, too.

the witching hour

2006-05-07T11:57:22.396-05:00

The colour of midnight, sliced into fierce sheaths of blue.

Perfect for:
Slipping into the nightspot of your choice (via the side door).

like a diamond

Dress is Matthew Williamson SS06

Panels of silk whirl and pool around your body as you flit about the house on a coke-induced high. You've been left to your own frenzied devices while your husband cleans his guns and brokers deals in his cherry-paneled study. You're sharp and polished, like a diamond.

Later, you're sipping margaritas on the patio with some of the girls from the neighborhood. They're as manicured as their lawns, which is to say: crisp, clean, and country club cool. "What does your husband do?" asks one. "He's in international shipping," you say, and your laugh rings out metallic, betraying the truth.

eye of the tiger

Split ends make the tiger very, very angry.

a girl's guide to owning it

2006-04-29T21:19:09.016-05:00

The act of kicking ass and taking names is raised to a certain level of style and grace when one is wearing delightful hosery.

runway/surreal way

2006-04-23T16:06:22.903-05:00

One Jean Paul Gaultier dress, one runway, one surreal photo shoot with Evangeline Lilly.

What can we learn from the two photos below?

a) Trash-tastic black boots and a garbage bag headpiece will poison even the most delightful of dresses;
b) A healthy, strong body is the very best kind of clothes hanger;
c) All of the above.

fashion model/fashion victim

2007-01-12T08:46:58.136-05:00

It's car-crashingly tragic when fashion models become fashion victims. With beautiful genes and a little black book bursting with names and numbers of the best stylists, hair, and makeup artists - there should be no good reason for looking like you've just rolled out of the back of an ambulance.

So Gemma: Darling, Dollface, Dear little princess - What's your excuse?

p.s. - Guns n' Roses called. Slash wants his jeans back.

vintage debauchery

2006-04-29T21:48:15.683-05:00

A little bit Marilyn, a little bit Courtney, and a whole lot of "I don't care (and yet, really, I do)".

Future Classics SS06: perfect outfits for nights when you're dragged out of the house to parties you don't care to attend. For blind dates you didn't ask for. For grocery shopping the morning after.

use your illusion

2006-04-06T21:56:12.806-05:00

It's so short, so transparent - it's practically an illusion.

Use it to your advantage.

rewind

2006-04-29T21:49:43.916-05:00

Fast Forward to Fall 2006: White Chanel thigh-high booties, black leather mini, filmy lavender frills, and a classic Coco cardigan. Claim them as your own, then rewind back into Spring, you lady-like bad ass, you.
