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.

Here is an old suit I found at a thrift store years ago. It’s yellow with white teeny tiny polka-dots and it’s a light cotton. Great summer suit. I thought the original buttons were lame, so I glued on candy cabochons to the buttons! They totally livened up the suit! The popsicle pins were originally cupcake toppers ( I ate the cupcakes) that I took and put a pin the back to make a brooch. Since finding shoes to match a yellow suit is a little tough, I took a pair of cheap heels and spray painted them with Simply Spray fabric spray in yellow and then I added ice cream cone cabochons to the bow. Voila! I’m ready for the Willy Wonka tour!

*By the way, sorry for the poor quality photos- I was on the lookout for bedbugs at my hotel in NYC. Seriously!

Above is a vintage Moschino Cheap & Chic dress that is half mannequin and half suit. I wore that for a series of interviews for ‘Machete’. The little mouse pin (moosh!) is actually nibbling on a Chanel symbol. It’s one of my prized possessions.

Below is my outfit for my interviews for Jackass 3D. I decided to take along my Kidrobot buddy, Munny by Tarina Tarantiono. Isn’t he cute!?!  *Excuse my messy messy bed.

Below is an extraordinary bathtub I saw in Soho in NYC. It was in a showroom and is made of little tiny sparkling gold mosaics! The water flows from the top of the heel. That is friggin’ Epic!!! I would not only take a bath in that, but I would move into that tub! I would be the old lady that lived in a shoe and was actually clean!

Anyway, I thought I’d share these random tidbits with you- It’s good to take a break from all the fashion week stuff! Whew!

Moschino Spring 2011, of course! I’m kinda liking this collection- the  polka dots, the stripes, the BOWS! The cowboy hat has got to go , though. Seriously, all I can think about is Destiny’s Child. Cheeeeeeze. Anyhow, I can see myself wearing all these outfits. My fave is the last outfit in red and purple polka dots. I think the bows on the collar make the look so dandy. So, the real question is: Would “The Nanny” still wear Moschino?  I have a feeling she would wear this collection, at least. I’m so happy that the Moschino is revived again- it was going through an ‘unfortunate department store’ phase for a while there. Glad to have the high fashion, whimsical look back at Moschino.

Rosette in my hair by Puppycatmeow on Etsy

So, I had to get dolled up for a few occasions and here are the pictures for proof. Usually, I sit around in a pair of stained PJ’s writing this classy blog. The first three photos were for my interviews for Twilight 3: Eclipse … I was trying to channel Nanny Fine from The Nanny with the Moschino belt from the 1990s. I put a rosette in my hair by Puppycatmeow on Etsy. The pink suit is actually a vintage store find from 20 years ago. I added some Chanel accessories to it to really give it that ‘uptown’ look which clashed with my ‘downtown’ hair. I like it when the ‘uptown’ and ‘downtown’ meet. I stole a picnic tablecloth and made that red gingham dress. Not really, I bought that ages ago! I pulled that rockabilly dress out for a recent trip to Mexico. Notice the mud flap girl necklace from Patricia Field’s. And lastly, I continued the gingham, but in lemon with this Nanette Lepore dress. I added the matching headscarf for a Eastern- European -country- girl -ready -to- go- apple-picking- in-her-vintage -bicycle. I think I nailed that look on the head. Ignore the Spongebob crocs in the back there….Voila!

I think I’ve died and gone to Fran Drescher  (‘The Nanny’) heaven! Maison Moschino Hotel opened recently in Milan and now I totally  have an excuse to go to Milan. I just need to scrounge 300 Euros, which probably $60,987 with all that inflation (that’s totally a discount compared to the Bush-era, by the way). Anyway, the hotel is based on a fairytale dream and is designed to reflect the Moschino style. Super-whimsical and modern simultaneously, this hotel is giving me ideas for my home. Although, I don’t know how the Mr. is gonna feel about sleeping on a giant velvet gown.

Here are a mix of the Moschino show and the Cheap & Chic by Moschino shows. I’m too lazy to post a separate post. Anyway, The Moschino show featured cowboy hats which totally remind me of Destiny’s Child. I’ve been guilty of that trend. Go ahead throw my ass in solitary confinement. Anyway, I had to post the pink violin handbag because I go kookoo for handbags that look like everyday things. For instance, I have this one vintage Moschino handbag that looks like a milk carton (see below) and I tried to fit a few baby bottles in there when my son was a baby. It didn’t fit and now I have no clue what to wear it with. But it’s so dang cool! But, as the dress says above, Fashion Must Go On!

photo-on-2010-03-01-at-1436PS- I have no idea why the handbag looks like it took a photo in a mirror. How vain! I took it with Photobooth on my MAC in case you’re wondering.

Although he has done collaborations here and there, Jeremy Scott made a comeback after 7 years with this Fall 2010 collection that echoed NYC street wear with clever, tongue and cheek details. This collection reminded me a little of Moschino back in ‘The Nanny‘ days. That’s a good thing. The cardboard cut-outs are brilliant, except I would paste a picture of a tabloid sweetheart on the head of the silhouette. Why? Because it’s damn funny. I wonder how you sit in that…. how does that work? For that hanger dress, you need your own personal Farnsworth Bentley to carry that around for you… or if you’re trying to save some bucks in this crappy economy, I guess you could  hang it from your ponytail. The main thing is Jeremy’s back.

Happy Persian New Year to all the Persian cats (and people)!
