Paris Fashion Week: Isabel Marant F/W 2014

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2014 23:28:22 February 28, 2014 23:28:22

Quite possibly the most unremarkable collection from Marant in a while, and I mean that in a good way. I don’t want to see anymore pairs of red jeans with the studding down the sides. Some of that sh-t was verging on tacky. There’s still a sense of the hippy here, a little, in the slouch and the shape, but much more sophisticated I think. Full Article

God this is suuuuuuch a beautiful collection. Now THESE are dresses. I love the layering of them – a consistent two-tone theme all over the runway, and peekaboo pieces over zigzag lengths. How about that spectacular red one? And I’m not one for a red dress most of the time but this one, this one is a dream. Full Article

It's the label Giuliana Rancic can't pronounce. Not Lonn-Vonn. Think of the French word for wine and then just add "Lon" in front of it. How hard can that be? Anyway, is that a baseball cap? Lanvin confuses me because while I do like the edge in the aesthetic, sometimes it's also pure sh-t. Full Article

Sasha Finds: Feather Earrings

Sasha Posted by Sasha at February 28, 2014 18:01:36 February 28, 2014 18:01:36

Hi Sasha!  I fell in love with a pair of Jennifer Meyer feather earrings, but I can’t afford to spend that much as I just moved out on my own and I’m poor.  Can you find me something that is under fifty dollars?  Thank you! P.S. no real feathers please! Thank you.  L If you’re looking to get some everyday wear and tear out of these earrings, then studs are the way to go and I’ve found some goodies here (1... Full Article

Obsessed with this collection. The coats. The imaginative collars. The prints. The prints are like quirky paintings you see in French cafes. Or wannabe French cafes. Still, there’s a sense of humour here. And fashion is supposed to be fun. I would wear the sh-t out of almost every piece on this runway. Full Article

Sasha! I’m getting my PHD and have a graduation event in a few weeks and need to look smoking hot.  There’s a guy that I need to impress (of course).  I’ve been looking everywhere for a cape dress, something like Lupita Nyongo’s Golden Globe dress.  I especially love how it falls on her arms. Full Article

There are some great shapes happening in this collection. And I really want to see Rihanna in the one sleeve suit. It’s totally hers if she wants it. There’s a lot of 80s influence here. I’m seeing a lot of Grace Jones. So, like, clothes for women and not just girls.   Full Article

Duana Names: Is Earl The Answer?

Duana Posted by Duana at February 27, 2014 17:06:41 February 27, 2014 17:06:41

Hi, We are having our first child this July, a boy. My husband really likes the name Earl. It was his grandfather's name. I know that traditional names from the past are very popular, but I feel that Earl is not one of these names. I do not like the name, and cannot help but associate it with the Dixie Chicks song "Goodbye Earl" that has the line "Earl has to die". Full Article
