I think it’s the “looks nude but really isn’t” effect that stops me dead in my tracks with these three dresses (It will probably do the same for you too, whether you’re a woman, or a man – zing!); but I also think it’s the profound sweetness these pieces uphold, despite their presumed scandalousness, that really seals the deal… basically Blair Waldorf in a nutshell. :)
Jewel Necklace Dress – 3.1 Phillip Lim – $525
Lace Dress with Zipper – 3.1 Phillip Lim – $795
Sleeveless Dress with Stones – 3.1 Phillip Lim – $750
Thank you to OTTE for ruining my day and 3.1 Phillip Lim for shitting on my parade.
P.S. If I pooped gold bars, I’d buy all of these.
Not even Chuck Bass would wear these!!!
…so I’m not going to post pictures.*
But for those of you who poop gold bars, check out Kate Moss’ newest line for Topshop. And because I’m kind, here is my guide to the good stuff:
Embellished Shift Dress
Suede Cutwork Shorts
Lace Wrap Dress (Sorry, it’s already sold out. HAH! You can’t have it either!)
Maxi Back Dress
Open Back Playsuit
Lace Bodycon Dress
Lace And Silk Cami with Lace And Silk Bed Shorts
Lace Back Playsuit
Jersey Swing T-Shirt
I hope you poopers enjoy my picks.
*This can also be attributed to the fact that I don’t know how to download flash images. Is there even a way??
P.S. There is also this Feather Cape that I totally dig, but I only saw it on the UK site.
Whimsical, yet still polished.
Miu Miu S/S 2010
Ok, so in case you didn’t know (although I think you all did know), I love J.Crew. It is a huge part of my life, mostly because it dominates my wardrobe, but also because I work there a couple days a week. I anxiously anticipate the release of the catalogue every month; I LOVE working overnight roll-outs so that I can be the first person to see new stuff; I cried the day Mickey Drexler was supposed to do a store visit and then couldn’t make it; and I died the day I met the head men’s designer, Frank Muytjens. I heart J.Crew. You heart J.Crew. Fashion editors and Women’s Wear Daily and Net-A-Porte heart J.Crew to. Lately it seems like J.Crew can do no wrong, but I’m here to disspell that rumour. I love J.Ccrew (yes, we established this), but I also like to make people feel good about themselves. So for the sake of Banana Republic’s self esteem, I’m going to create a “What Was J.Crew Thinking?” (WWJT) segment, wherein I will highlight particularly ugly items that the retailer generates. First up: Women’s Gallery Overalls at $168.
Next up on my fugly list: Tie-Dye Perfect Shirt, for $78.
Basically all of the “art tees”. What, did Jenna get her kids to sponge paint them?
Drop Cloth Art Tee. On sale for the not-low-enough price of $29.50!
Oh my gosh – Which one are you gonna get??? Morning Glory Art Tee, $24.99
J.Crew, I love you, but I also love to make fun of you.

Boy, did I have a hellish day at work today. So much stress and not enough patience! Gaaahh. Bygones though, it’s over now and I’m off to Sonoma for Alexis’ bachelorette party!! Should be a fun weekend filled with wine, girl talk, penis decorations, wonderful friends, and my exciting new purchase!
More on this delicious diddy later… :) I hope you all have as much fun this weekend as I plan on having!
No, this is not a post about Tiger Woods.
I was surfing the internets during a bout of insomnia last night, when I caught wind that Gap had new releases in their Design Editions shoe collection. I was (of course) drawn to the floral bow wedge, but they were sold out of my size online (of course). I was a bit discouraged, but figured I was better off without them because they are $110 and I don’t poop gold bars. Le sigh.
Well after work today, I had an hour to kill before meeting up with a couple girlfriends to buy “decorations” for a bachelorette party this weekend (8===D), so I toodled over to Gap – with low expectations, mind you. I searched the store (twice) for anything resembling the coveted shoe I saw online but came up empty-footed (Get it??? Punny!). Just as I was about to leave, a boy in a vest asked me if I needed help finding anything. Oh hell. Why not? He knew just what I was talking about and directed me to them: tucked away in their boxes, underneath a platform with a bunch of manequinns on top, with no identifying signage (Ohhhh, I get it now! Gap doesn’t want to sell their merchandise. Obviously. Geeze.). There was ONE pair left in MY SIZE, and I had a GIFT CARD. Today, kids, I felt like I pooped gold bars.
Are Kork-Ease not the quintessential summer shoe? I think yes. These are a Must Have…and kind of a Can’t Afford, too.
I love love love all the fun colours! Though not the only retailer, YOOX had by far the best selection of styles/colours. I highly recommend checking out the snake skin print wedges in the light brown. It is a really cool colour, I just couldn’t get a good image of it. Oh, and I hope you’re a size 10, because that’s the only size left!
I have a new fave nail polish!
It’s Black Diamond by China Glaze. It’s not really black, totally. It has a greenish, slate tint to it. It’s totally awesome. I can’t find it anywhere except at Sally Beauty Supply stores. Luckily, you can order it online if you don’t have a Sally’s near you.
You are welcome.
