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.

Who knew violins could take so much milage in fashion? Viktor & Rolf did it. Now ThreeAsFour…. I personally like violins and actually have a violin brooch I bought a while back from Etsy. There’s something somber and snobby about the violin… also it can turn quickly into a hillybilly  hoe down if need be. It’s so versatile! Honestly, these violins look out of place on the garment, as if the model is on their way to a gig or something and needed a free hand. That first outfit is perfect for those subway musicians… it’s like one hand plays, one hand collects money. That last dress looks totally like intestines. I rate this collection FUG.

Marchesa is one of my favorite designers. They focus on evening gowns and tend to be my favorite dresses whenever I watch an award show. Beautiful, yet modern- I cannot say this collection is innovative especially since I see bits of Givenchy. I do love it and think they are gorgeous, it’s just that the sheer, heavily-embroidered gowns have already been done recently. In any case, I can’t hate on Marchesa- after all, they are the ONLY American designers that would fit in comfortably at the  Paris Haute Couture shows and I respect that.

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 !!

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.

Here are  my pick’s from Fred Flare this month. Fred Flare is a really cool online shop and store with clothing, accessories and other stuff in Brooklyn, NY for those of you who don’t know…

1. A composition duffle bag- because it reminds me of those damn essays we used to write in school. Mine was all scribbles.

2. The Bunny Tea-for Two set- because it looks like that hot slut, Miffy.

3. The “I am Woman- Hear me SNORE” sleeper mask – because I would love to put this on my husband’s face while he sleeps  and witness the horror on his face when he wakes up! AHAHAAHAHAAHAHA! No,really, my 4 year old son’s snore rivals my husbands’- Astonishing!

4. The Nerdy Glasses USB – because I’m free from those bad boys! Lasik, b*tches!

5. The Stapleless Stapler -because staples suck.
