This laptop cover is as cool as the Snow White Skin for a Mac! It houses a MacBook Pro and MacBook in a hard leather bound faux book. This is perfect way to foil a robber in your house. Imagine an old-timey library with real books (what are those?) and this masterpiece amongst them. It may be the only ‘book’ you’ll ever read! It’s called a ‘Book Book’ and retails for about $79. I would get this, but I’m pretty happy with my Monster sleeve. I bet they’ll come out with one for the iPad (ugggh- awful name). This could be a steampunkers dream.

Horseback riding, Gibson girls, and vintage Charles James gowns gave John Galliano his inspiration for his couture show. I am a big fan of the horseback-riding look, all the way down to the riding crop.  I think it’s an elegant sport, and horses are just so majestic and gentle. So naturally, I loved this collection. If I had a horse, it would be a white Arabian stallion. I would put a pink rhinestoned, unicorn horn on it for special occasions, like my birthday. I would name the horse Mr. Moosh. Basically, it would be my cat,  Mr. Marmar as a horse. I’m way off track here, but yes, I do think things through. Galliano is officially on my ‘Never can do eff up’ list.

I really liked this collection because it was really feminine, edgy and modern all at the same time. The purple dress in the second photo is just gorgeous! Reminds me of a more toned down Viktor & Rolf dress. The Mongolian lamb fur in the first photo looks so fluffy and soft…sort of like my cat. Anything that reminds me of my cats in a big plus in my book. I really don’t know what’s up with the lampshade, though. I guess it goes with the edgy territory. Givenchy really impressed me this season.

Vagrants and hobos were Vivienne Westwood’s inspiration for her Men’s collection. Mugatu is totally pissed about this. I mean, he was the pioneer in ‘Derelicte’ Chic. Seriously, Viv better recognize. Anyway, Vivienne must have the hook ups because that shopping cart works! Around where I’m from, the shopping cart’s wheels lock once you’re out of the supermarket parking lot! This way people can’t steal them and like put their laundry and chirruns in them. This also reminds me when I would wear a fur coat in the winter and sleep at the Port Authority because I would miss my bus back to RI. I would get ‘WTF?’ looks left and right. By the way, plastic bags are a no no.

Remind me to wear Thimister when I’m getting all Dexter on someone. Either that or  when Aunt Flo is visiting (sorry, but I couldn’t resist!). The real story behind the blood is the reference to war and the bloodshed from World War I. The best thing out of this collection are those Hunter boots. I have a pair that I wear almost everyday in the winter. They are just so comfy, yet stylish- and by stylish, I mean I look like I ready to dig clams from the damn sea! I love them. Anyway, Thimister’s collection is the first in 10 years, so I guess we can cut him some slack. Literally.

A Mexican theme ran through every vein of this collection. Sombreros? Check. Cigars? Check. Mariachi band? Check. All that was missing was tequila with a worm in it (nastiness!). As much as I want to love the collection because I really love Gaultier’s vision, I can’t. The collection wasn’t elegant enough to be passed off as a couture collection. However, there were maybe three looks towards the end that were really fantastic — one of which was a white corseted, over-the hips jacket with a hoop skirt covered lightly with brown and yellow brown feathers and a white feather crown to match (third photo). I still believe in Gaultier, though. Maybe he should lay off the margaritas for now. There is always next season.

PS- Here is Gaultier’s take on cats in corsets… I know, so RANDOM!

I am sort of liking the half and half look at Alexis Mabille’s show. A far drastic look compared to her last collection, like in this post. I can’t help to think of this when it comes to half and half outfits. Or this (love the facial hair on one side). Anyway, this would be cool to wear when you’re trying to lose someone in a crowd… and the world was two dimensional. This look is sort of cartoony, which is probably why I like it. That wedding dress is definitely for a shotgun wedding, by the way. I didn’t know Alexis was a dude (who looks like he could have been on the bus to Cartagena in Romancing the Stone)  until I saw this photo. I seriously thought it would be a lady as ravishing as this Alexis.
