Archive for the ‘IT’S SO FLUFFY!’ Category

Designer Thom Browne unveiled a collection that would make an egg rejoice.  Really, though, I actually like it and appreciate the new silhouette. After seeing form-fitting hoochie -wear for a while now ( does the hooch ever go out of style? Probably not),  it’s refreshing to see that not everything is T & A. God, I sound like a friggin’ nun. Anywho, anything plaid is always cool in my book as is the fuzzy, mohair look. My favorite has to be the uptight Victorian with the cage skirt in the 6th photo. I always liked cage skirts! I think my least favorite is the third photo with the Sasquatch mid-section. It’s like a hairy arm muzzle for cold mental patients. Anywho, yay for Thom Browne for stepping a bit out of the boundaries which is always unusual during New York Fashion Week.

Dayum! That is some caarrrrrrrazzzzy hair! Like it’s hair that doubles as shelter. It’s like your own little portable room. Photographed by Takahiro Ogawa for the Asian Beauty Expo and hair creations by Peter Gray & Masa Honda, these gems are sure to make anyone with Hirsute jump for joy. It’s like a Supermodel Sasquatch! I appreciate all this artistry though, because I have .081847% of the hair above and I still can’t get it right sometimes. Like this morning,I woke up with my ponytail on top of my head and bits of Mr. Marmar fur lodged within it. Damn cat keeps burrowing in my hair at night. But I have to say Mr. Marmar has the most luxurious fur in all of time! It’s like a cloud of cotton candy and the fanciest silk spun together to make this magical fur that is… Mr. Marmar. I can’t hate him for having luscious fur, therefore I can’t be mad that he wants to bond with my hair like that dragon thing in Avatar! Mr. Marmar tames Roxy ,  NOT  Roxy tames Mr.Marmar! And just like that Mr. Marmar gave me a ‘b*tch, recognized!’ look.

Check out these adorable heels from Streetzie’s High Heel Bunny Slippers ! It’s like wearing a stuffed bunny on your feet. It’s like wearing bunny slippers, but only high heel. It’s like having a furry friend cuddle your toes. You get the idea… They come in 4 colors of powder blue, black , white and of course, PINK! I had to order a pair to go with my hello kitty ensembles (because you can never have enough pinky cuteness). They are actually very comfy and the heels aren’t hoochie high, so that’s good. And no bunnies were harmed in making these, although somewhere a 3 year old girl is weeping about her beheaded stuffed bunnies. So, if you see a crazy lady in a hello kitty skirt, unicorn necklace, bows in in her hair and pink bunny high heel slippers chances are it’s me. Be sure to say hi.

Fur Fur‘s Spring 2011 Collection was a plethora of BOWS!!!! You may already know that the world and time stops infinitely for me when I see a Bow on a head or dress because I just love them so! It’s like when Mr. Marmar hears the shake of the snackums bag. He freezes and then pitter patters towards the snack like he’s denying he’s been OWNED by a lousy snack bag. Then he gobbles everything up in 10 seconds.Cat snacks aside, Fur Fur has introduced an adorable collection of Snoopy (or Snooby!), BOWS and that hairdo from the 1960s that you can recreate on Yearbook Yourself. I love love love this collection! Check out Japan Streets for cool photos from the Japanese streets and local fashion shows.

British designer J. Smith Esquire makes fantastic hats and accessories fit for the modern Victorian lady. Is that an oxymoron? Hmmmm… I’m especially digging the fur hats- it’s like a cat on your head- that’s always good in my universe. I also love the stained glass hat. Speaking of stained glass, here are some photos I took of the newly remodeled Limelight in NYC:

Stained glass is the best! It’s like a forever rainbow! (yes, I’ll always be a four year old at heart.)

Anyway, the that neck piece in the fourth photo is pretty killer! That’s a statement piece if ever there was one… Brilliant work, J!

Where, oh, where did Yang Du come from?! We must share the same brain! These cartoon dresses are beyond awesome and yes, I would wear them all day, even to a funeral. My favorite have to be the cartoon eyes in the first photo and of course, the Batman dress. Fluffy, knit lion fingers have to be the funnest ever! Flipping the bird would take on a softer message. By the way, the eye makeup on the models is pretty rad, too. So, Yang Du is pretty hard to find and I seriously would like one of those dresses. Checkout his earlier collections below. Pretty fupe, huh? I’d totally sit next to that old lady on the bench and chat about cats.

First off- The designer that had to fill Alexander McQueen shoes must have been shitting her pants.

Secondly, She did a pretty good job.

Thirdly, that hair at the show was beyond SPECTACULAR! It was like a basket came to life! It was like a checkerboard – how did they do that? While I ponder this, I remember I had done a hair show in NYC ages ago and I was modeling for Paul Mitchell and they did a dye job exactly like that- a checkerboard. Blonde and brunette. Only thing was that I was a demonstration model, so after doing only one side of my hair they kicked my ass off stage! So, I was walking around with the most effed up hair west of the Port Authority. That’s saying a lot considering the area. Anyway, a Feria dye job later I was back to normal, but needless to say it was a scarring experience.

Anyway, this collection was great- my favorites are the orange dress with butterflies emerging from the collar and the greyish, white feather dress in the first photo. That gold and cream dress (photo 5)  was equally stunning, too. Still, it’s such a shame a huge talent is gone.

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.

This is for the United Bamboo* calendar. So, every year  United Bamboo takes actual outfits from their collections and makes them fit for a kitty. Genius!!! Then they take photos of these fashionable furry beasts and put them in a calendar. Then people like me  buy the calendar and gooo and gaaa everyday of the week whenever we pass by the  feline calendar in our kitchen. I can’t wait to get my copy! Apparently, their pattern maker is a cat lady so she was down with making kitty-sized garments. That last photo of a Mr. Marmar clone in curlers has nothing to do with the calendar, by the way. I threw it in for an extra special treat for all you cat fanatics ( ok, it was for me). Yay for kitties! My favorite cat model, by the way,  is the first photo. He’s so fluffy, yet professor-y. He also looks cranky. Someone needs to take off their cranky pants! Mooshmuffin!!

* I had no idea who United Bamboo was until I saw this on Cat Party. I’m a fan now!!!

Goodness Gracious! These gowns are to die for … Seriously, Marchesa needs to pack up and move to Paris because that is where they belong- amongst the incredible haute couture houses of our time. Let’s start with the stunning shoulder/neck jewelry on some of the dresses. I love love love the glitz and glamour it lends that only the 1930s did so well ( I also love jewelry built into a dress). Each gown’s hue is so delicate and reminiscent of an elegant ballerina ( we also saw that at Dennis Bosso– definitely the movie  Black Swan is in the air). I’m especially digging the nude and lace gown- some of these gowns remind me of Dior and John Galliano’s couture line over the past couple seasons and also Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture lines from several seasons ago. Identical silhouettes and soft, feminine fabrics- but always flattering on any woman.Anyone who brings on the glamour is A-ok in my book! Yay, Marchesa!!
