Fur rant

Fur. There, I said it. What kind of fashion blogger would I be not to have something to say about fur? It's all soft and warm and fluffy like animals, but obvs this is no reason to wear it. If you wear fur you are wearing a big hairy sign that says "Yay! Someone clubbed a fur seal to death for me!!" And don't tell me that secondhand fur is ok. Vintage fur is the same amount of unacceptable, just older. Although, if you want to tell the world that you are a meanie with lots of cash, then go ahead. Fur smacks of money - it’s neither subtle nor classy.

I think that if you happily eat steaks and cheeseburgers and bacon then you have no business being squeamish about chicken's feet and brisket and monkey brains. Which is why this bag is so awesome! It speaks a truth rarely found in the fashion world. Let’s stop pretending that meat and fur and animals are different things and grab your Chanel meat handbag!

Barbie attacked by crazed birds


Kind of like Suzy Bubble with her black crow fascinator. Too cool.

Diana is in the news again!

This just in: Diana's favourite dress was... kinda hideous! She wore it on her visits to meet sick kids in hospital and they loved the bright colours. Diana called it her 'caring dress'. It is so sweet that she braved media scorn to make children happy.

The media hated the dress, of course. But then, the media was not exactly on her side, as we know from the fact that she is dead.

Style icon: Religious ladies from the 19th Century

Here's a lovely accessory that popped up on Craft the other day: a Reversible Folkloric Felt Bonnet. A bonnet!

The regular reader(s?) of my blog will know that I am very interested in ironic fashions and I love referencing things that are deeply uncool, hence my penchant for librarian chic, etc. For some reason when I think of folksy fashion I think of Chloe Sevingny, who everyone loves and knows is the indie style queen sans equal - maybe the folk thing is because of her recent-ish role in Big Love, although she's obviously a New York gal all over, so who knows how my mind is making these connections. My point is, if Chloe Sevigny is wearing a pastel-coloured, high-necked, long-sleeved, ruffly blouse made by a little old seamstress in a teeny tiny town in Utah then...uh.... so can you?? oh forget it.

These modest dresses and freaky 19th century undies for the conservative Mormon in your life are being sold without irony all over the Internets right now, although my sources are unable to verify if anyone is actually buying them.

It all seems a bit too matchy-matchy - where's the individuality? Oh, right, of course. I am quite partial to maxi dresses, but I think this takes it a bit far. And ladies, let me dispel a myth for you: brushing your hair a hundred times won't make it healthy, and just because it's long doesn't mean it's pretty. Sorry, but I had to say it.
