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…

Balenciaga’s Resort 2010 collection has less than 30 looks and had more that 20 looks would personally wear. That’s pretty good considering a lot of designers design a few cool pieces per season and the rest seem like ‘fillers’ to me. This is the Resort collection, so for all us little people, it’s the clothes that rich people wear when they are vacationing on a yacht or somewhere glamorous like that. Vacations at Lake Tahoe don’t count as a glamorous destination to wear these. Sorry, people. Anyway, here are a few of my favorite looks from this collection. I love ruffles! It’s so doll-like! The last photo is like Paul Bunyan and Queen Elizabeth’s spawn after a few Old Milwaukee Beers. Genius!
