Vivienne Westwood stans are going to insist that I just don’t get it. That her clothes are more than just clothes, they are political manifestos and yadda yadda yadda. I get it, but I don’t think they get that it looks like they are wearing a beach towel.

Can you believe this ensemble is actually by Proenza Schouler?
It pains me to put them on this site, but this is atrocious. Baja hoodies are worn by every stoner at every liberal art college across the country and are usually purchased for $19.99 at the same stores they buy their bongs. So why in the world did the Proenza Schouler boys do a literal interpretation and put a $1,500.00 price tag on it?

Sorry for being gone, if anyone is still reading. I had to deal with real life but now I am back and fashion hasn’t gotten any better. Take this dress for example. Normally leaves are a rather suggestive motif. Just think of Adam and Eve hiding their shame with fig leaves. Rachel Pally takes the leaf and puts it all over a muumuu.
One shouldered sports bra by Alexander Wang, $58.00 at Opening Ceremony
Sports bras are ugly. I live for mine when I work out but it is not something I want to take out as a fashion statement. Wang had the brilliant idea of making an ugly, utilitarian undergarment even worse by making it outerwear and removing any function. How are you supposed to wear this? On the runway the pieces were styled in a way that would resemble an old timey hobo boxer if worn out in public.
Denim bucket hat by Maison Martin Margiela, $105.00 at Project No. 8
Bucket hats were never cool. Bucket hats never will be cool. Avey Tare is cool despite his bucket hats. Even diehard Animal Collective fans think it looks dumb. Imagine this is the beginning of 2009 and Merriweather Post Pavillion is the coolest thing out there. In this situation, bucket hats are still not cool. I know MMM is all about the high/low thing, but at a certain point, you are just spending a ton of money on something tacky and lame.
