Beijing designer Xiao Li designed this capsule collection inspired by tin robots! Some of may know that I love love love robots and those vintage tin robots are the favorites. I have this tin robot that I attach to my handbag sometimes- it’s even named after me! Hahhaha. I cant’ hate on anything robot related, so I’ll go ahead and give this an A+++++. Even though the fourth photo looks like a busted diaphragm around her neck, I have to appreciate the craftsmanship. This collection reminds of when I would wear an empty hamper when I was kid. Boxy and smelling like sweaty socks. Those shoes are pretty rad if you’re into Bollywood and it’s totally a DIY- lumber jack boots, marbles (or gumballs, if you don’t mind ants), glue gun and you’re good to go.

PS- I did some research and could not find Xiao Li’s official website, but I did find this precious fluffball! Unless, she’s a fluffy panda bear with mad sewing skillz.

Claire Michel, a student at The Royal Academy of Art in Antwerp, unveiled these designs for a project. I did some heavy duty research ( I googled her ass) and found that there are over 7 million results for ‘Claire Michel’. So, naturally, I said eff this. I don’t know much about her, but her work stands for itself- Part deranged, part pre-school craft projects, part hoodie. This pretty much what I wear when I have to brave it and clean the toilets. I mean, you don’t want all those germs up in your face. I do like the ombre sneakers , though. At least this isn’t as bad as this dude’s collection.

And here I am still writing and scratching my ass. These are some ominous masks that can scare the hell out of anyone sane. I guess that’s why I’m not scared. This gem of a collection is belongs to Giulia Pozzuoli from Polimoda, Italy.

Although I can appreciate the actual clothes in the collection, especially the leather jacket with the science fiction shoulders, I just can’t with the masks. It reminds me of that movie, The Strangers, which made me buy 2 extra cell phone chargers and have an irrational fear of burlap bags. Long story short, I will NOT travel to remote areas and always buy basmati rice in a box or paper bag. Anywho, Guilia is a fashion student so she can always do better next time. We’ll still hang this on fridge with the heads cut off.

Chances are that you are reading this piss drunk on your mobile at your family’s Christmas lunch. Before your nagging aunt tells you to put away the phone and pay attention to the unappetizing chestnut cobbler she made, I leave you with photos from the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show a.k.a “outfits you will never find at a Victoria’s Secret even if you use the displays behind the window”. Because, truly, whenever I go into a Victoria’s Secret, I only see the sweatpants with ‘pink’ stamped across the ass. I dunno, maybe I’m just blind.

Anyway, have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season! Here is Mr. Marmar doing his best ‘Santa Baby’ pout. I totally taught him that! Actually, I see a little grinchiness in his eyes. Oooooh, My PET!

I discovered works by Onch Movement at Los Angeles cosplay/art cafe, Royal T. Jewelry with a small slab of meat inspired by Lady Gaga’s meat dress at the MTV Music Awards are available as a bracelet or necklace. I personally wouldn’t wear this just because I think it’s sort of gross, but if you like the meat look, but don’t want to reek of rotten flesh, then this is for YOU! But if I had to wear it, I would wear it to a zoo, naturally. The crocodiles would shoot me  a “bitch, please” look. The California condors would be all like, “guuurrrl, did you NOT see ‘The Birds’?”. And the lions would be like, “Mmm, appetizer” (because I’m small and petite).

Anyway, I’d advise you not to wear this around a pitbull. Check out Onch Movement and their other stuff. I threw in a whipped cream and cherry ring for dessert.

American artist Robin Barcus Slonina latest project is making a dress sculpture for all 50 states. The first of the bunch are New York ( trash bag dress (I can’t forgive her for that!)), Nevada (casino chips dress -sounds about right although, I’d add a fannypack to make it pop), Maine, (pinecone dress (imagine the little bugs crawling!) and Wyoming (willow dress- which should have been NY, because it could look like the bodies floating in the Hudson River after a mafia spat). I threw in the rest of the photos of her work like a feather duster dress (I would totally dust the house wearing that), beachball dress ( from the 99 cent store aka “that store with a lot of typos and effed up cheap stuff “), and sponge dress ( are you sponge worthy?). Check out her blog for more everyday crap turned couture.

If you ever wanted to blend into your Nana’s basement wall or be all ninja in front of your shady uncle’s station wagon, this may be for you. Rodarte sent models down the runway with woodgrain (‘faux bois‘ if you wanna be all fancy-like) print ensembles for their Spring 2011 collection. Seriously, the only reason I would wear head to toe woodwork was if I wanted to get all stealth in the woods and get up close to nature and stuff. But with my luck, some angry chipmunk or aggressive woodpecker would probably try to peck or bite me, so ….NO, that would actually be a bad idea come to think of it. I have to admit I have a pair of Puma trainers that are wood grain with pink neon laces that I designed through Mongolian BBQ/Puma. Although, I have yet to wear them in the woods, whenever that will be! I’ll be sure to pack my mace.

This is season the avant-garde designer had safaris, old cartoons, and aviation on his mind. It’s like vintage Moschino was reincarnated as Jean-Charles Castelbajac , which is a compliment to say the least. I’m digging the zebra shoulders, and Felix the Cat print (although those pajama pants need to go) and the trench coat/dress. I’m not sure if The Little Prince is popular in the US, but it is in Europe, so somewhere it’ll be a cool outfit. Of course, my favorite has to be the sunglasses vest. Kinda reminds me of that statue in Soho with multiple boobs.  Anyway, I still like the Castelbajac ode to The Muppets collection better.

This season, Karl the Kaiser must have had inspiration strike as he watched his maid dust his 200 ipods.Why? Because feathers were everywhere at the Chanel Spring 2011 show! I personally love feathers and marabou and anything fluffy, furry and soft. So this is right up my alley! Specifically, the alley with the most stray Persian cats (do they even exist??) but that’s a different story. Anyway, although Chanel is one of my all-time favorite designers, this particular collection didn’t “wow” me enough. Seriously, the feathers saved Karl’s ass, because feathers make everything instantly fancy and precious. At least in my book and Alexis Carrington’s book ( coincidentally, we share similar books). When in doubt, add a feather- that’s my quote along with  183,464,503 drag queens.

Our favorite cheeky designer whipped out his 3D glasses for his collection. No one told him you don’t need 3D glasses with Beth Ditto! Kidding! She looks wonderful. Love her flapper-style hair, actually. I liked Gaultier’s latest collection, but I didn’t love love it. I was torn between the Joan Jett mullet and the David Bowie suit. It’s like, so cool from the neck down and Central Floridian trailer trash from the neck up.  I think my favorite out of the bunch was the peach corset in the fourth photo. Corsets are what Gaultier does best, in my opinion… wish there was more of that in this collection. Besides that, those pointy shoulders are pretty cool, too.
