Large troddel by Carolyn Massey, $160.00 at Opening Ceremony.
What the hell is a troddel? A quick googling brought me to WWII era German bayonet accessories, which scared the shit out of little Jewish me. Further googling, however, lead to me realizing that “troddel” was simply German for “tassel”. So, I guess I overreacted on the purpose of the “troddel”. It is useless. It is an ornamental tchotchke to throw on your purse or keychain. A bauble that costs 160 bucks.
Midrise boot spat by Dekkori, $126.00 at Pink Mascara.
Anytime a certain look or item blows up, you are going to get a wave of crappy look-a-likes trying to get on the wagon. Posso the Spat gets positive editorial and celebrity coverage and suddenly everyone wants to do spats. Now, I am not even a fan of what Posso the Spat is doing, but it sure is better than this. This looks like a white leather leg warmer/ace bandage. The stripper heels they styled it with doesn’t help either. Not a good look.
Redgreen glasses by Bless, $275.00 at Project No. 8
“Note: not recommended for prolonged use as sunglasses.”
Buy our glasses, but don’t wear them too long or you’ll go blind. Also, now that Real D is taking over, you can’t really use them as 3D glasses anymore either. But they are great for Christmas festivities.
