Dolce & Gabbana- Fall 2015- A Garden by Children

DOL_0127 DOL_0283 DOL_0347 DOL_0453 DOL_0471 DOL_0547 DOL_0733 DOL_0841 DOL_1197 DOL_1211 DOL_1257 DOL_1273

Dolce & Gabbana’s latest collection was full of baby friends and kids honoring their moms. Dresses with child-like drawings and appliqués took over the runway… probably, inspired by Angelina Jolie’s Versace custom-made wedding dress. I have to say those drawings are better than anything I have ever drawn! I wonder what child(could they be “synthetic?“) army they employed to draw all those pictures! Any who, I really love the roses and the colors in this collection… very 1950’s… a hip hip hooray for our favorite Italian embezzlers who say the most stupid things.

Moschino- Fall 2015- That’s All Folks!

The 90’s are back and it’s making me feel so old!! The later parts of the 90’s was part of my heydays and believe it or not, I still have and wear clothes from that era still. So, it will be very easy for me to recreate these looks, but on the other hand, it means it’s not gonna look right on me this time around with 3 kids in tow! Am I right?! Any who, I like the Looney Toons theme, but not as much when it was a Barbie theme… Bugs Bunny is awesome, but definitely not as glamorous. On the other hand, the gold chains and graffiti are fantastic- MORE please!

Serbian Designer Marko Mitanovski’s latest collection sent models down the runway covered in black paint, latex and corsets. Sounds like a typical night at Christian Grey’s dungeon. Any who, all the theatrics aside, I really appreciated the workmanship that went into those corsets! All those laces, the steel bones, the endless grommets….. wow wowie wow! And that hair in the 7th photo! I’m glad the collection of lost Beyonce weaves found a home on that outfit. I was getting worried for those forgotten weaves!

Gareth Pugh- Fall 2015- Primal Scream

GAR_0158 GAR_0190 GAR_0324 GAR_0348 GAR_0377 GAR_0417 GAR_0470 GAR_0569 GAR_0590 GAR_0621 GAR_0643 GAR_0880 GAR_0984 GAR_1053

Check out the latest from the Scientologist’s favorite designer, Gareth Pugh! It was all black, as usual with splashes of red make-up here and there. It was like the Grim Reaper got its period or something. I do have to say, I love the silhouettes of this collection- it reminds me of a medieval warrior gone emo. Can you imagine a medieval emo chick? This would be what’s hanging in their closet! Having said that, I need a duvet dress like the one in photo 6!

I love love loved this collection! It was granny punk, which is my go-to look on days when I have to clean up nice. The knits, the bright colors, the sparing use of latex …. all brilliant! It all looked polished, yet spunky- hip hip hooray for Sibling!

Royal Ascot 2015


Royal Ascot 2015

The Kentucky Derby has come and gone…. but the Royal Ascot 2015 (The Kentucky Derby is the hillbilly sister to a posh, British Royal Ascot, I suppose) is coming up next month! Here are some wacky and wild  hats from both events from past years and I have to say, I’d wear every single one.

That Lego Big Ben looks really heavy, though. Anything Lego is really awesome… I once made a Lego purse. I glued blue and yellow, flat lego panels to a pocketbook. It came out looking like an elementary school project!  The parrot hat looks pretty real and it could summon a whole gaggle of ravaging parrots!  That rose mohawk on Johnny Weir is pretty rad, in like a Rose Parade kinda way. Any who, I find the Royal Ascot has way better hats than the Kentucky Derby… so much more interesting.

If I had to wear a hat, I think I would choose my big, fat Persian cat, Mr. Miggins. Mostly because he’s warm and furry. But also because he’s white and he would match everything.

All kidding aside, one of my favorite hat designers is Piers Atkinson. His hats and fascinators are whimsical, chic and practical. He also specializes in bespoke hats with a variety of different materials and shapes.

Another designer I admire is the famous Philip Treacy of the United Kingdom. His hats are more classic, yet highly chic. His hats have graced the heads of many, many famous people including Dita Von Teese, Britney Spears and Boy George. I have one Philip Treacy hat on my hat rack that I had bought 10 years ago at NYC’s Henri Bendel. It’s a Tiffany Blue fedora that is fantastic for a rainy day. The only thing is I live in California, so rainy days are far and few between!

Another hat company I love is French designer Maison Michel. You may recognize their most famous design, the lace bunny ears made popular by Lady Gaga a few years ago. On their website, you may see a fascinating video of how hats are made and how tedious it is to craft these timeless pieces by hand.

Besides a fashion statement, hats can be very necessary in parts of the world with lots of sun, rain, or snow. I wear a hat pretty much everyday to shield from the awful California sun. There are days when I can feel my skin sizzle like a piece of friggin’ bacon! So, a hat is super duper necessary. Especially, since I’m a fan of the porcelain skin. I have to say it’s vey hard to keep your skin untanned in California! I use an SPF 600 sunscreen on my skin everyday! Not really, it’s SPF 50, but still a high SPF. I also make sure my kids have ample sunscreen on.

Anyway, let’s get back on track about the upcoming Royal Ascot 2015 coming up in June! What sort of hat would you wear and which horse would you bet on? Can’t wait to see the hats of the Royal Ascot of 2015! Pip Pip Cheerio!
