One thing I love besides bows are POLKA DOTS! Usually I was a little ho-hum about Marc Jacobs, especially since last season’s ugly hippie dresses. But this season he emerged from the patchouli haze and has partially redeemed himself with these cute polka dot berets, 1940’s silhouettes and of course, POLKA DOTS!! So cool, because I already have lots of polka dots in my closet including those exact polka dot stockings I got from Victoria’s Secret a while back. I stocked up on those babies and now is the time to whip them out! My favorite look has got to be the second photo- I love the contrast of the collar, gloves and hat- so 1940’s. Yay for Marc !!

See ! I got your attention with ‘Diamond’…, but alas, there are no diamonds. Sorry for the cheap lure. Anyway, Lake And Liberty designed these leather Elizabethan ruffs for your gymp in waiting. NO! They’re just Elizabethan ruffs done tastefully in leather. I always thought those ruffs resembled those cones that dogs wear after visiting the vet to prevent them from licking their butt. The dog always ends up with a tragic face when he realizes the ‘cone of shame’ is in the way of such tasty treasures. YUM! Anyway, these ruffs are pretty cool for a modern take on those old-timey collars. I was Queen Elizabeth one year for Halloween and I ended up making a ruff from a toddler’s tutu. No joke. It was a ghetto ruff if ever there was one. I’m gonna have to go through my archives for visual proof! These ruffs will class up a t-shirt or dress without looking costume-y. Actually, it probably will look like a costume, but nobody cares anyway…

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!

Nothing says sexy like an octopus hanging from your clavicle! Designer Dominc Jones made these jewelry inspired by animals and stuff. You may remember him from those gloves he made with the fingernails attached to it. Epic, if you ask me. Anyway, this was from a shoot at Vice Magazine, in case you’re wondering. The snail necklace must be the most uncomfortable to wear. I bet it feels like leeches, all slimy and stuff. That necklace wouldn’t last in house since my husband eats snails. He’d be like, “Mmmmm, appetizers!” and snatch it off my neck- no joke. The fish heads are pretty gnarly to. It’s totally staring back at you saying, “why you gotta be like that?”.

Check out these ‘Garment Sculptures’ by  British artist, Susie MacMurray. The first photo are rubber household gloves…like the type you wash toilets with. And the second photos is a collection of red balloons that are deflated. The last two photos is a dress made entirely of pins and needles. This is some Hellraiser sh*t! Like seriously, imagine all those needles on you. I’d be so scared to move, sit, smile, itch, or blink. Even a porcupine would run away from you with it’s tail between its legs. (I wonder if porcupines have tails.) He’d run away saying, “I quit this b*itch!” . Actually I think it would roll into a ball and roll away. You know, pack up leave.  Anyway, I thought this photo fit in nicely with the pins and needles theme:

As a fan of period pieces, especially of the Victorian age and Elizabethan age, British designer Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2009 collection was genius!  His collection featured  Elizabethan ruffs with a space age twist. The entire collection was mostly in white with dashes of black here and there. I am happy to see a designer take risks and design truly for the art and not just for whether you can wear it to the office. That being said , I would totally wear one of his dresses out on the town. Yes, I would look like a foolio who is not supposed to lick wounds and stitches, but who gives a fupe! I love it!
