It's not fake. It's real goat fur, and you can get one of the LAST TWO for only $277.20 at ShopBop.
How innocent, how naive I was!
I thought that fashion designers were going through a phase of actually making attractive, flattering, wearable clothing.
Yeah. Like a gigantic goat fur skirt.
Or these "special" shorts. I made fun of my own writing by calling it "special" as in "special ed." I think this fully-qualifies as special-ed fashion - except that would be a total insult to the real special-ed kids out there who could all design 1,000 times better SHORTS!
But . . . in case you wondered about the back - here's a notice to everyone out there if they don't already know - if it makes the MODEL look horrible, it won't look "better" on you.
And these lovely items came in full-length and attractive calf-length. In case you thought you were a . . . calf?
Actually, shopping the designer sample sale where a rather "horsey" individual seemed to think I should go next door to Marshall's for the "large sizes" (I estimate she actually was a size 8 - she was about 5'10" so Ms. "Thin" and I were the same size) I did see some stuff that surprised me, and sure enough, it's not a one-off designer whimsy, leather and suede really are in for Spring. Like - leather blouses and suede shorts.
But I couldn't miss this special item. For designer ready-to-wear, it's a steal at only $225 - the "Adam" Poplin Henley shirt.
Now, this is style. I was so impressed by this style that I decided to see what type of designer ADAM is. Adam Lippes! Now, designers taking inspiration from regular street clothing is nothing new. Entire lines, like Ralph Lauren, are dedicated to classic, impeccably-styled versions of "ordinary" non-designer clothes worn by ordinary people. In fact, these clothes are basically . . . clothes worn by ordinary people. Now, you can order Adam's signature "basics" for $60 to $80 per piece (white t-shirts, henleys, wifebeaters, etc.) or you can go to WalMart and get a 5-pack of said items for $15.
Now, I am not surprised to learn that pretty ultracute Adam himself did start at Ralph Lauren (what a dumb fashion bunny I am! How did I guess! In advance never having heard of him before!).
But . . . Adam, designing for real women, I simply have to share one thing: first, only some retard is going to pay $55 for a "slim wifebeater" when you can seriously get boatloads of them at WalMart for $3 each, slightly nicer ones at Tar-get (Tar-je) for $5 each, and a truly mad variety of all sorts of them at virtually any other store in Southern California - from Forever 21 to H & M to Zara to . . . uh . . . if you're slim, you can even go to Abercrombie and get some real skimpy stuff. Or you can go to Urban Outfitters and get the ones that are raveling in my drawer right now . . .
This little item comes in a rainbow of colors, and even has a little tailoring, and pockets for your needed on-the-job items. $14.99 at Uniform Advantage . . .
Yeah, a $225 scrub shirt . . . now, that's . . . fashion. On crack!
