Will someone please explain this “fashion” to me?
Is it some sort of anti-establishment statement to have your pants hanging down below your underwear? Are the pants the next thing to go?
The dress Michelle Obama wore tonight:
The dress she wore in 2009:
It’s amazing to me that there are pockets of society left where wearing a dead animals is still acceptable:
Known as ‘The Louis Vuitton Don’ it would of course only make sense for Kanye West to be at the French fashion house’s Menswear Fall/Winter Collection for 2013/14 show on Thursday.[...]
Holding his head up high, the Watch The Throne genius wore a black T-shirt with a pair of slim fitting black jeans teamed with black trainers.
Wrapping a red and black checked shirt around his waist, West accessorised with a large gold linked chain and a gold grill worn on the bottom row of his teeth.[...]Standing out from the crowd – as he would have wanted it – Kanye wore a khaki jacket which was beautified with fur lining and a fur large hood.
I can’t imagine anything more uncomfortable-sounding than these. And the thought of being massaged by chemicals all day — what’s “special formula Smooth Legs?” — ah, I don’t think so:

Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-CT., wore her Sunday Best to the Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi-sponsored photo opportunity with the Democratic women of the House to highlight the historic diversity of the House Democratic Caucus in the 113th Congress and celebrate the increased number of women joining the Democratic Caucus on January 3, 2013.
I’m not sure if this is high fashion or low fashion but whatever it is, I think it’s wonderful that DeLauro has the guts to step out in what I presume she thinks is a fabulous outfit, no matter what anyone thinks. Bravo to her for her guts. And look at that hair!
She bucks the stereotype of what a woman who is almost 70 “should” wear.
The more I think about it the more I love it.
I LOVE this — more sanity from around the globe — as in legislators passing laws that benefit the citizenry instead of the corporatocracy:
[A] law that bans the use of underweight models in advertising went into effect in Israel [on Tuesday]. The law also requires that any ad digitally altered to make a model look thinner must say so in the advertisement.
According to the law, models with a Body Mass Index below 18.5 would be prohibited from appearing in advertisements.
I’m happy for all the girls and women in Israel who will at least be somewhat shielded from the outrageously unrealistic body image the fashion media would have us all strive for. Oh, if only we could relax about that.
Yes, this is a real shoe. $188.95 at Nordstrom’s.
It’s called the “Gazelle.”
Can you imagine running like a gazelle in that?
16+ million people follow Kim Kardashian on Twitter. Kim tweets about having and buying things:
Think about the (mostly young) women who follow her. Life is all about moccasins, loafers, being blond and bikinis.
Uh oh, here’s Geraldo Rivera in a hoodie. Yikes:
A tweet and a photo from LeBron James of the Miami Heat. Notice the hashtags in the tweet:
This is what you get when you follow the link in the tweet:
TAKE THAT GERALDO and bravo to the Miami Heat and LeBron James.
They are so ripping us off:
Easy luxe with a silken touch. Scoop neckline. Mid-hip length. Modal rayon and polyester. Machine wash. Imported. [As in: Made in China.]
This is outrageous. Show me a Savers and I’ll show you a soft 100% cotton boyfriend-style top for $2.00.
Well, the votes are in and as of last night, my town, Boulder, Colorado, passed — by a “wide margin” — a referendum rejecting the notion that corporations are people.
A Boulder measure that counters the idea that corporations and unions have the same First Amendment rights as individuals — a concept referred to as “corporate personhood” — scored an easy win Tuesday night.
Question 2H, which pushes for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would guarantee that only people are entitled to constitutional rights, won the vote by a nearly 3-to-1 margin. According to the final 12:55 a.m. tally, 18,392 voted in favor and 6,556 voted against.
The non-binding measure also favors limits to campaign donations and expenditures by enshrining in the Constitution the idea that money does not equal speech.
Bravo! I am so proud to live in a town that has, at least figuratively, rejected this anti-democratic, cockamamie notion.
This would be Kourtney Kardashian in NYC today. (Note the woman in the striped shirt — and animal skin — behind her.)
I thought killing animals so rich women could feel richer than the rest of us went out of fashion 15 years ago.
This would be Kim Kardashian at an aquarium in Connecticut the other day.
Does she ever — ever — relax?
Tell me those shoes are comfortable.
Ugh. What a “life.”
OMG. Say it ain’t so already. This is news?
I watched a bit of the royal wedding today – enough to catch some of the hats the female guests wore to the service — and when this one passed by,
This would be Princess Beatrice, the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.
Forget the fashion police. This thing should be confiscated by the fashion army and destroyed. Immediately.
This has got to be the ugliest shoe I’ve ever seen:
High school kids were standing outside my local grocery store the other day asking people to pick-up simple items poor and homeless people do without. One of the items was disposable razors.
As a food bank volunteer I know razors are coveted but scarce so I forked over six bucks for a 12-pack.
Three days later I see this:
Are you kidding me?
That would be — in essence — $250.00 for a cordless razor.
Go here people:
Donate $250.00 to yourself or to your local homeless shelter.
Amazing what people will buy.
Now they’re designing clothes to fit our fat. This from HSN tonight — designed to hide that fat butt and those fat hips:
Notice how cheaply it’s made? No buttons. No zippers. No hooks-and-eyes.
They’re loving that we have a whole new need for ah, fashion.
Thank God for airbrushing huh?
It’s deplorable that the fashion industry implies that there are people out there who actually look like this. Look at the neckline of the woman in the middle in the second picture. That is so doctored. And the hands. No “wrinkles” at the knuckles.
Google anti-wrinkle cream for teens — teens! — and you get almost 800,000 hits.
Sad. Cruel. Almost abusive.
Miss this stuff?
– Tea Party darling Paul Ryan (R-OH) calls for a $600 million cut in border security. I think we should go after employers who hire undocumented immigrants so hey, fine by me, but why aren’t the Tea Partiers rioting in the streets? This is a huge betrayal of one of their core issues.
– China overtakes Japan as world’s 2nd largest economy (Woah — China — that was fast!):
Japan ceded its spot as the world’s second biggest economy to China in 2010, following a contraction in the fourth quarter as the strong yen contributed to an export slump, the end of auto subsidies depressed car purchases and a new tobacco tax hit cigarette sales. The Japanese economy’s fall from its 42-year reign in the No. 2 spot behind the U.S. on an annual basis…
– The “liberal media” (that myth is, unbelievably, still alive) couldn’t find any Democrats to appear on today’s Sunday morning talk shows. At one point during the Bush years I heard someone
explain spin/justify that so many Republicans were on the “liberalcorporate media” because they were in power. They were in office. They were making the news. Ah, yeah. So what’s the excuse now?
– I can’t help myself here but the dress Rihanna wore to the Grammy’s tonight
reminds me of the Michelin man:
I’m watching Michelle Obama on Oprah. She looks good. She’s dressed very conservatively — a pinkish/purple sleeveless dress, blue/gray “kitten” heel pumps, “diamond” stud earrings (I don’t know if they’re real, of course) and a mesh-like silver necklace with five or six grayish stones:
I’m trying to figure out what the righties will say is “wrong” with her look. They always find something, as in the commie red dress she wore last week to the state dinner honoring the President of China.
I’ll keep you posted. If Sarah Palin can turn Obama’s “winning the future” theme from the State of the Union into WTF (what the fuck), they’re capable of anything.
If there was ever a right-wing attack that was so over-the-top-stupid it would offend even right-wingers, this has got to be it:
The right-wing media attacked First Lady Michelle Obama for wearing a red dress to the White House State Dinner, suggesting she did so to honor “Commie Red China.”
Doug Powers: “Michelle Obama Appropriately Enough Wore A Red Dress” While “Musical Rendition Of ‘If My Friends Could See Me Mao’” Played;
Hoft: Michelle Obama’s Dress Slips Off At Commie Red China Obama State Dinner.
Dude, it was designed that way. It’s an off-the-shoulder dress.
Fox Nation: “Did First Lady’s Dress Send A Political Message?”
Also at the link above, this insanity:
Pam Geller Accuses Obama Of “Flying The Gangsta Colors At The White House” For Supposedly Wearing A Purple Tie.
Miss this? The NOHh8 campaign?
On November 4, 2008 Proposition 8 passed in California, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The defeat provoked a groundswell of initiative within the GLBT community at a grassroots level, with many new political and protest organizations being formed in response.
The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with “NOH8″ painted on one cheek in protest.
Two years since its inception, the NOH8 Campaign has grown to over 8,000 faces and continues to grow at an exponential rate. The campaign began with portraits of everyday Californians from all walks of life and soon rose to include politicians, military personnel, newlyweds, law enforcement, artists, celebrities, and many more.
What? The “liberal media” hasn’t covered this?
Micro rant: Long, drapey and cheap (no buttons or zippers or hems) — that would be the ugly sweater fashion trend this fall.
I’m hearing that Army green is the fashion color for fall.
Excuse me but I’m not going there. I will not buy anything that’s “Army green.”
I do not support anything related to killing people or to American imperialism.
When will the militarization of our society end?
When we’re flat broke from endless war.
The fall catalogues are starting to come in by the bushel. I was looking at one a little while ago — Garnet Hill — and I noticed that the description of most of the clothing includes, “Imported.”
I’m willing to bet that “imported” means made in China or Vietnam or Malaysia but natch, they don’t want to say that. “Imported,” of course, sounds so much better (but maybe not for long).
How different can one cotton beach towel be from another? Well, if you’re a brand/label kind of person with endless amounts of money, the “H” label — as in Hermes — means a lot. It means the ridiculous, outrageous price of $530.00 for a beach towel. A TOWEL!
Yeah, there are variations in the quality of a towel but come on! How rich and oblivious does one have to be to spend $500+ on a freakin’ TOWEL?!
When I was in my teens and early 20′s we would throw out shorts long before they looked like this:
But given that corporations are cutting corners, they want us to think that spending $98.00 — yes, that would be $98.00 — on “superdestroyed rail straight cutoffs” (they save money on the fabric) is really, really cool.
Hey – here’s a tip. Go to your local used clothing store. Buy a pair of jeans and/or jean shorts. “Destroy” them to your desired level of destruction and roll them up to your desired length.
Voila. You’ve saved $95.00.
Next? Strut down the street wearin’ those cool superdestroyed cutoffs knowing you won the war against the corporatocracy.
So exasperating to read about $750 bathing suits on the Style pages while just a click away on the news page hundreds of thousands of Americans see their jobless benefits slipping away. What on earth will these people do? John Edwards may be a sleazeball, but he was right about “two Americas.” Unfettered capitalism at its ugliest.
