Such Dizzying Indulgence

Meta-costume! Fashion designer at fashion event fashioned as other fashion designer who tends to look like a fascist! But when does a fashionable obsession with fashion become unfashionable? Is fashion even fashionable? Un-fashion-believable, these people!

No. 2 SeriousStyle says:

Fashion will never be unfashionable as it dictates the trends of fashion to begin with. People like Cavalli and Lagerfeld are pioneers and untouchable. They can do whatever they want and someone like me (who reads Vogue and W and looks at pics from fashion week) will look at it as art rather then something ridiculously unwearble. Art is never unfashionable as it’s subjective and the big bosses in this industry have built such a huge reputation for beautiful and well-loved designs that they are at a point in their career that they can throw crap all over a model, send her down the runway and someone, somewhere will “get it”. Whether they get it or not is besides the point. It will be fashionable to “get it” as these mavens of style have worked their way up enough to dicate what is and isn’t fashion.

I think it’s sort of hilarious that Cavalli is impersonating Lagerfeld as he can literally do whatever the hell he wants and the fashion world will still adore him. Same goes for Lagerfeld. These guys are utterly eccentric and make absolutely no sense to the majority of the world but they have cornered a market that few people understand but everyone thinks they “get”. Everything they design is okay by fashion standards as they have earned that right.

Except leggings. Leggings are never okay.

Did this make any sense? Not that it so much matters =)

ils: It stops talking to its intellectual superior else it gets the hose.

Finally, the perfect time to say that.
Completely unrelated to to anything, I just lost my shit at work talking to a client and cannot stop laughing or crying laughter tears. And listening to the other agent trying to talk to the client I was laughing at is making me laugh more. Oops, I think I just wet myself. Oh damn.

No. 12 SeriousStyle says:

Thanks guys! I got off to lunch and get called a loser only to come back and have all this defense =) Appreciated.

But yeah, ils, shut up yourself. And learn some punctation while you’re at it. That’d be nice. I’d rather too many commas, then too few.

mae: I have a wet nap if you need one.

No. 13 mae says:

woot woot, thanks j_b! I better get a commie for that one so my life can be validated. And the client didn’t do anything. My hangovers are weird. I lose my mind and go cuckoo when I’m hungover.. Moreso than I’ve already lost it.

Thanks SS, I do.

Rating restaurants by the number of celebrities who eat there has got to be one of the most soul-degrading jobs I’ve ever heard of.

i know digging up corpses might be a funny halloween prank for some weirdos but somebody needs to put that zombie back in his grave, i think he’s starting to bloat.

I’m going to totally agree with seriousStyle. I’m lame but I have a ton of vogues I’ve collected over the years. Some of the pictures are just amazing and really capture a period in time.

It’s not all just bitches looking fierce. I also have to concurr on the leggings. Let those things go. And I would also like to toss in my disdain for, Uggs. Short for ugly is my opinion. I lived through the moonboot and this is just a moonboot all dressed up in fur.

The description on ils vont’s blog: “A gossip aggregator focused on ranking restaurants, bars, clubs, hotels, shops and places based on the number of celebrities who frequent their establishments.”

Wow. Just … wow.

Uggs make me ill, along with Crocs and various Chef/Garden shoes that yuppies have claimed as their own. Gross.
