Halter top by Maison Martin Margiela Line 6, $65.00 at Anastasia Boutique.
Line 6 is supposed to be Margiela’s least conceptual and most comfortable line. However, I am struggling to see how this is going to be comfortable. It would be impossible to wear this by itself, you may as well go topless. Then you are faced with figuring out undershirts and what looks good and what doesn’t because this can very easily look sloppy. I get that Margiela is all about taking clothing to the limits, but you gotta be able to wear it too.
Just want to say I am so sorry for ignoring the blog. My job is kinda hectic, I will manage my time better, I promise.
Submitted by Gigi. This is one of those things that leaves me so baffled I am not even sure what to say about it. If you want a slim, fitted plaid button down, buy a slim cut button down. I doubt you will be able to find a well tailored shirt at Forever 21. Sometimes things are worth the cost, however, if it allows you to avoid whatever this is.
Skirted trousers by Gareth Pugh, $1,432.80 at LuisaViaRoma.
We have seen skirtedleggings. We have seen peplum leggings. Now I bring you…umm…half skirted leggings? train leggings? butt flap leggings? Whatever you want to call them, they will make your butt look flat.
Shorts onesie by Opening Ceremony, on sale for $230.00 at Opening Ceremony.
A friend submitted these unaware that they were already in my list of items to post. Apparently, the folks over at Opening Ceremony caught one a repeat of Family Matters on Nickelodeon at 3:00 am and said, “Shit, the Urkel kid is on to something.”
Fergus leggings with skirt by Mike & Chris, on sale for $138.60 at Shopbop.
This may date me, but when I was in high school Hard Tail pants were insanely popular with the Abercrombie crowd. In the winter months, many of these girls would put their Hard Tail pants underneath their Abercrombie jeans and fold the waistband of the Hard Tail pants over their jeans. In retrospect, it looked like they were all wearing maternity jeans. These bring me back to those days, and not in a good way. Sure, having a skirt built into your leggings prevents the “leggings as pants” mishaps, but at what expense? The leggings are also bunching around the ankles, which makes them look more like flare pants than leggings.
On another legging related note, the designer of these leggings sent me a lovely message assuring me that the leggings were very comfy and the balls actually act as cushioning. That could have done me some good back in my school days, sitting on those hard wood chairs for hours. So, if you like the look and the price is right, they are comfortable.
