Before you banish me forever for posting something sold at Sears, please, please stop and listen. These are sort of clever- it’s a pair of undies with fake ‘skid marks’ that are used to store valuables. It’s meant to keep thieves away, as well as any self-respecting human being. This reminds me of the episode of Laverne & Shirley where they stash their cash in the ice cream box in the freezer. Not really the same, I guess and yes, I’d rather watch old reruns than watch The Hills. Anyway, someone at Sears must have a refreshing sense of humor. I mean, looking at polyester suits and rayon dresses all day can really eff with your mind.  These nasty chonies sell for $12.99, but I’m guessing you could DYI it and make it even authentic, if you dare! Muahahahaha.

Check out these spiny, bony heels by DSquared ! This charters into Alexander McQueen territory. I think the black shoe and white heel makes it look weird… I think it would be cooler if it was all bone color or all black or all gold. Actually, gold would be pimpin’! This is when the ghetto in me comes out. I love gold and I don’t care what anyone says! Who cares if gold looks like you just picked it up from the corner pawn shop? Or if it looks like it belongs on an Arab sheikh’s toilet? It’s gold, right? There was a time when I didn’t like gold, then Flava Fav happened to me. Fight the Power!

Here is some wacky men’s fashion courtesy of those crazy kids at Graduates Fashion Week 2010. I have to say, whoever designed this is obviously looking to ward off financiers which takes major balls! I like that. This belongs in a parade somewhere in the world. And yes, he must have been in a K-hole at Ikea when designing this.

So I scoured the web again and came up with these odds and ends. I wasn’t sure how to file these, so I just decided to throw a post with just a hodgepodge of unusual fashions. Forgive me for not citing which is what designer. I’m lazy today and let’s just say I’m concealing their identity for their own good. Let’s get on with it , shall we?

1. Fugly Chaps- Apparently, these are upcycled pants. So, it went from Fug to SuperFug with more effort. Hooooowwww is that possible?

2.The fluffy white dress- I actually sort of like this because it reminds me of Bjork’s fuzzy sweater on the cover of her Debut album . I can see her wearing this. I can see myself wearing this. It looks so fuzzy and cuddly, as if you’re wearing a billowy cloud. Actually, with this dress, there are no need for cat-cuddles. Mr. MarMar will strike upon me at any moment after that comment.

3.Lobster Garters- That’s all sorts of wrong. Crustaceans should not be hanging near your lady parts. At least they’re not crabs. having said that, I’d love a steamed lobster with drawn butter, please.

4. The Cone head- I’m sorry, but you gotta add some ruffles if you want a more Elizabethan look. This just looks like veterinary paraphernalia. That chick’s head looks alien.

Voila!

You may remember Alexis Mabille from here and here.  The only two looks I liked from this collection were these two looks above. I like the feminine, foufy-ness of it. And it had bows, which is like kryptonite to me. I’m especially digging the layers of tulle on the sleeve. I wonder if I take my old ballet tutus and wrap it around my arms if it’ll look as good as that. Probably not. I’d most likely be mistaken for Bobby Trendy.

The illustrious Hasty and Jacques Torres

Hasty Torres and me

Nestled in the heart of Beverly Hills lies a magical boutique selling everything chocolate! Madame Chocolat is an enchanted chocolate boutique owned and run by Hasty Torres, wife of chocolate wizard Jacques Torres. Each of Hasty’s chocolate creations are delectable and beautiful than the other. Coming in all shapes, sizes and flavors, chocolates are produced in small batches for every occasion and holiday. For Bastille Day, chocolate Eiffel Tower ranging from small to large were produced in honor of the French celebration. Solid or hollow chocolate high heels, handbags, sunglasses, watches, cigars, and almost everything in between are available for any sweet tooth. Not only are the shapes impressive, but the flavors are unique in its own. Over 21 variations of white, dark and milk chocolate, including a Grand Marnier-infused ganache, fresh raspberry ganache, champagne ganache (known as the ‘Champagne Kiss” *swoon*) exist in this lovely chocolate heaven. The extreme attention to detail of the packaging, the product itself, and the gorgeous French 16th century decor give even Fauchon and Lenotre a run for its money. Even the massive chandelier has the Madame Chocolat logo hanging throughout the chandelier.That’s damn exquisite, if you ask me.

Hasty was gracious to let us into her factory and showed us the process of making haute chocolate. The chocolate is constantly churning to keep from hardening and is ready for impromptu drizzles or a full-fledged production of bon-bons and truffles. Each chocolate takes at least two days to make! After sampling a bunch of chocolates, I left the store with a smile on my face, a sense of luxury( I was channeling Mr. Marmar) and a major sugar high. ( Not sure if that’s the best combo for driving-hahaha). Be sure to try some of your favorite childhood candies and cookies dipped in chocolate, like Cheerios, Oreos, Rice Krispies and of course, marshmallow s’mores. Madame Chocolat not only serves chocolates, but also ice cream, tea, coffee, iced drinks, croissants and cookies.  Custom orders are available and nationwide shipping is available. Be sure to say, Haaaaaaaay‘ to the lovely Hasty for me- she’s a doll!

John Galliano decide to shower us with a bouquet of flowers including the plastic floral wrap. All he was missing was the powdered flower food that no one every uses [insert own drug joke here]. I like how Galliano ignores the “plastic can suffocate for his models. But that’s not important… Take a look at each dress. Each one is a specific species of fleur. My favorite is the black one and the blue/pink gown. Such beauty! As usual, Johnny struck one of his infamous poses at the end and he’s wearing a beekeeper’s hat/veil. So fitting! I can’t hate on a genius. Truly. Viva Dior!
