Cirque A La Mode

July 29, 2009

Of all the new trends emerging, there was one that flew under my radar for some time, the fashion style of the circus punks. It seems that every town is laden with a plethora of circus troops, and it has birthed a community all its own. Unlike other trends, it has evolved from just a clique into a lifestyle. A good example is El Circo, a performance troop that always had tight ties with one of my favorite designers, Ernte.

As for the fashion, stripe pants and cute vests have always been my cup of tea, they can create so many outfit possibilities. Unfortunately, bloomers are not. Sorry kids, they must die by the way of flame. There is a reason they went out of style…….a hundred years ago. Let them rest in peace.

No Disappointment In Sight

July 13, 2009

On a semi regular basis, I sing the song of love to my favorite men’s designer, Julius. Once again, with his new line, he has failed to disenchant me. 

Bring on the tactical gothninjas!





Oh Look! A Distraction.

July 9, 2009

Greetings toadies.

Worry not! New snarky articles are on their way, but these things take time. So to keep you occupied, look forward to a few days of ‘Hey, look at this neat thing’.

Snark soon. Until then…………courage. 


Usually, Chanel doesn’t do it for me. Too plain for my tastes. But look at this outfit! Simply divine!


Lascivious Louboutin

June 4, 2009

Once again, Christian Louboutin has awoken my shoe mania. This collection showcases a wide range of heeled delicacies, made even more palatable by their  complimentary setting in these photos by Peter Lippmann. One can only hope that the designs trickle down the chain into copies that we, the shoe devotees, can afford. 

These scale heels are definitely a must have.
