TRENDSPARK: Jumpsuits Are Everywhere

Edited by

TRENDSPARK: Jumpsuits Are Everywhere

I for one, am glad to see the jumpsuit making yet another comeback.

They are easy to wear and most are very comfortable. I personally favor the ones that are loose, as they are very flattering to the figure. I love the “long and lean” look, as most accentuate the legs making them appear long whether you have long legs or not. The more “tailored” looks from Ralph Lauren and Yves St. Laurent are perfect to go from day to night with a change of shoes and accessories. In my book they are a definite “fashion do”. Here are just a few of my favorites.

Wear Lauren Conrad? Sorry, I’d Rather Be Hazed.

Edited by

Wear Lauren Conrad? Sorry, Id Rather Be Hazed. A few weeks ago I reported in Desperation 101 that Lauren Conrad would be on a national tour to market her clothing line. As expected, it was the the sorority girls flaunting their Ugg boots, North Face jackets, straightened blonde hair, black leggings, Juicy Couture sweatsuits and gem encrusted Bebe tees that ransacked the audience. Apparently the campaign went over well, but it went over well with a crowd that doesn’t know fashion from the other 20 girls sporting their beer stained Sigma Gamma Lambda Kappa Delta Pi Epsilon sweatshirts with dried vomit in their hair.  

Some girl from Northeastern University said ”Wearing her clothing line tonight was really an honor.” Well, apparently this girl was flattered that she was one of the many cotton dress wearing, cheap black belted, frontal hair poofed models. Good job Conrad, you gave daddy’s little girl 5 minutes of fame other than when she gets voted make-out slut at Saturday night frat parties. 

Another spectator at the show said ”A cotton dress for $200 is overpriced, just because of the name that’s on it? Come on. But, I mean, I would totally buy it, just because it’s a Lauren Conrad dress, I totally would.” Excellent, another label whore. Totally kill yourself. Totally. 

 

Thanks NY Mag!

Lesbianism: New Form of Publicity

Lesbianism: New Form of Publicity

Tara Subkoff knows how to draw attention to her new Bebe line: lesbianism. She’s shooting a promotional film starring Lydia Hearst to play in Bebe stores. Hearst already spilled about the film in Page Six Magazine. Subkoff captured Hearst smooching Aubrey O’Day of Danity Kane outside Butter on Monday night for the short film, and today it wound up in “Page Six” in the newspaper.

And we totally fell on the lesbian bandwagon yesterday when we wrote about the smooching between the two blonds. Now we find out it’s only for publicity…Guess we should have known that these desperate celebs would stoop to anything in order to get their names into the newspaper one more time! Wonder how much they got paid to whore themselves out?

Imitation of Bebe

Imitation of Bebe Great news bit from the Market girls

This time of year, most of us are pretty much broke; between the wads of cash that we so generously spent on people we really couldn’t afford to, and the amazing “deals” on fabulous items we couldn’t even dream about buying before the season was over (not that they aren’t probably still overpriced) there’s hardly anything left for… Valentine’s Day!

So it warms my heart (or maybe that’s just the extra insulation from the dough lining my pockets,) to know that Tara Subkoff  of Imitation of Christ is doing a line for Bebe (insert amazement, yes Bebe is still around).

I mean sure, she leant her name to Easy Spirit before, but those shoes were way too editorial, and nowhere near reasonably priced. This time around, however, the prices range from $59-$189.

Think ’40s, with a hint of pinup. I can’t wait to add the Ruffled Wrap Dress to my collection of “fabulous and (subsquently) memorable items” that I can, for that reason, only wear a handful of times. But its the “nature of the beast,” I suppose. Besides, a portion of the proceeds goes to charity. See, we all win!
