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 !!

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.

The guy that writes the blog Swallow Glitter made these impressive gloves! It’s definitely like “Edward Scissorhands”, as Outsapop says. It’s like like every piece of broken jewelry  and hardware on a leather glove. And it’s brilliant! I’d wear those gloves if I was roaming a sketchy neighborhood. I’d be flashing my hands like ‘jazz hands‘ to any one suspicious. Which brings me to this story… once I had to go to this beauty store in South Central LA because it was the only shop that carried human hair in my shade of Bozo the Clown red. So, I walk in and the guy behind the counter was spooked and there were 2 cops asking him questions. Already I was like, crap! So, I go in take my merchandise faster than you can say “bitchdonttouchmyweave.” Apparently, a transvestite with a gun  dressed to the nines in broad daylight robbed stole shipments of human hair. The f*uck? No cash, JUST HAIR! HAhahahahaah! I thought that was amusing. Anyway, I’d wear these on my next trip to that beauty store.

Here are a few of my favorite things from Brooklyn’s Fred Flare shop.

1. A collar necklace... so I can never stain it… with my own lipstick.

2.A polka dotted dress so I can look like Lucille Ball with my red hair.

3.A headphone winder because you know you can totally choke yourself if you’re not careful… I’m not even 2.

4.Fingerless gloves made out of men’s undies so no one wants to shake my hand (ew , germs)

5.A shoe butter dish for the Thanksgiving table (I love freaking out old people.)

6.IKaraoke because I like to torture people in my vicinity.

7. A toilet bowl necklace just to remind me of the things that really matter.

8.A saw cake cutter to scare children at my son’s next birthday party.

9.A brass knuckles mug to send a warning to those pestering me in the morning.

Happy Turkey Day! I’m off to stuff my face with fooooood and watch that cheezefest called the Macy’s Day Parade.

London based Dominic Jones designed these leather gloves with gold ‘ fingernails’ attached. This is great, since gloves totally cover up your manicure. With these gloves, you may never have to get a manicure again (at least in the winter). I remember when I used have fake nails like a Long Island housewife done by the local Korean nail salon. It was an hour of agony with all the fumes and the stuff. I stopped after 5 years.  Now I have natural nails. I sometimes miss fake nails for the following reasons:

-my cats amusement as a used to tap by nails together to beckon them

-being able to scatch, like really scratch!

-setting my clock without the use of a coin

-scratching a scratch ticket without a coin or key

-picking up dead insects without really touching it

-having my finger sparkle while I flip the bird ( especially useful while driving on a sunny day)

That being said- I totally want these gloves!
