Michael Kors Spring 2010

The Duchess held court this week and we have opinions.

Style.com sez:

"...he sent out a sleek collection that, save for a few missteps, played like an ode to the city in springtime, along with its high-powered inhabitants. The strong yet rounded shoulders of his jackets and vests put the power in power suit. Overall, though, he was more interested in sleeveless shift dresses, a favorite of his most high-profile client of all, Michelle Obama. They came in silver crinkle lamé, crushed techno taffeta, draped jersey, and glove leather, but the most interesting was a radzimir number in sky blue with origamilike folds. Kors created surface interest elsewhere with zipper accents that zigzagged around the torso of a mint green asymmetric-neckline sheath, or with bold cutouts that exposed a flash of rib on a cocktail dress.

Occasionally, Kors' enthusiasm got the better of him. Dresses with graphic plastic insets might pinch, were some gal to wear them longer than it takes to make a circuit of the runway. And a further detour into deconstruction and high concept—via cashmere knits with slashes at necklines and hems, along with a trio of sweaters with extra sleeves—was off-key."

Michael Kors is no innovator and he'd probably be the first to admit that, but we do love seeing his collections because everything always looks so fresh and crisp and polished and they all seem to be an ode to the joy of wearing pretty clothes.

This isn't as exciting as more recent collections. It's a very toned down color palette with very basic silhouettes. The slashed cutouts work in some instances and look silly in others. The plastic inserts don't work at all, but the clear chunky jewelry is pretty fabulous. To sum it up, it's a lot of "pretty, pretty, pretty, GOD, no, pretty, pretty." Lather, rinse, repeat. As always, he's got way more "pretty" than "GOD, no" and that's why he's a major designer.

I'm no prude but why send boobies down the runway? No woman will dress that way unless she wants to get a violation for public nudity. The shift is beautiful, why not style the model the way it will actually be worn? With a cami underneath. Overall, a rather peaceful collection with one shock value nude thrown in. Nothing I would wear but nice nonetheless.


Overall, though, he was more interested in sleeveless shift dresses.

OMG! He totally copied half the designers on this season of PR.

I can't deny the quality of the work, but nothing moved me much. And please, for the sake of all that is beautiful, make the Wilma go away.


Girlwitoppionons

I think some of it is supergorgeous, but some of the less fitted pieces just aren't doing it for me. Duchess let me down this time :(


Pretty, pretty, pretty -- really? I see messy, messy, boring, boring, airline hostess, airline hostess, Barbarella, messy, Barbarella, messy, boring, boring....


I thought of his comment about Wendy Pepper's boobie garment from season one PR. Boobies! I don't care if you're twenty years old, no one's going to wear that. Boobies on the runway?
There were several things that were just lovely, though, and a little too much gimmicky stuff to override the boring stuff. . .

I have no problem with boobies on the runway because no will wear the see through shirts in real life unless they are a HOstess at a strip club.

What really gets my goat in Michale Kors or any "Judge/Crttic" talking out of both sides of the mouth. In PR Season 1, Wendy Pepper sent a see through top down the runway and Kors & Garcia curcified her. We now have Kors sending a see through top down the runway. Someone please explain!

I maybe wacko, out there, and on crack too often but at least I am (as more posters are) consistant.

TampaBay

P.S. - Love 90% of this collection. Most of the pieces can be worn for 10 years.


Am I the only one that saw those necklaces and thought anal beads? Big, gigantic, anal beads.


I hate the black cut out pieces. Vulgar, and not something I'd expect from MK.


Wow. There's nothing I like very much at all. I've never been a follower, but I'd thought he was skewing a little differently these days. I guess not. The pale blue skirt and top are cute for the suburban tennis club set. And I would like the '60s cut of the first dress except for one thing - it looks like leather, which makes it less than wearable.


Sorry, pickles, but this schoolteacher/wife/mom has no idea what anal beads are! But I'm sure I'd agree with you if I did.

I'd love to see the press reaction if Shelley O. wore the green or black dress with diagonal plastic inserts. Who is that stuff designed for??

LOVE the coats. Want one.


That poor model in the swimsuit! That thing was too small for her, but she squeezed into it and spilled out of it.

I agree - pretty, pretty, pretty, No!, pretty, pretty . . .

I like the clear inserts, although I would call them vinyl, not plastic.


pickleschaparal:
"Am I the only one that saw those necklaces and thought anal beads?"


You might be.


I REEEEEELY want:
White Suit..frame 2
White short outfit...frame 6
Gray dress...frames 13 and 14.
ALL the coats.

The rest, some very pretty, some ok, some fug (see acrylic inserts).
All in all, a nice collection, though.

Thanks for the Saturday morning treat, TLo!!!!


Aside from the male printed suits,I liked it.

Maybe a little boring, but that's what you do if you're trying to appeal to a larger customer base.

I wonder which ones ShelleyO is going to wear? (Hopefully, beltless)


Am I the only one that saw those necklaces and thought anal beads? Big, gigantic, anal beads.

No. But now you got me thinking about the Duchess and sex toys!


I really like this collection. I thought it was just ok by only looking at the pics, but I really liked it after seeing the models working them on the runway. The black strappy swimsuit does not look to tight in motion, like it does in the still picture.

jamibythebay


Crisp for sure. Also seriously underwhelming to my eye, but Kors' stuff usually strikes me as overly bland and borderline boring. I made a sleeveless shift quite similar to one of these in 8th grade home ec.

I agree with other posters that I think Kors is influenced by PR designs he's seen. I've thought so before this collection, actually. Nothing wrong with that to my mind, as designers lift ideas from each other all the time. If they didn't there wouldn't be recognizable trends.


Lets all hope we do not start seeing sleevless suits on men! I like some of the fabrics and dresses. I can totally see some young Hollywood starlet wearing the dresses with acrylic cutouts.

Tulip



Meh.

I saw messy and unwearable. Only one or two of these looked remotely feminine and flattering. This is the worst I've ever seen from him.


that first bathing suit is awful - it's a lesson on how to make a size 0 model look like she's got a big fat bag on the side of her body... no Dutchess, NO!


vegan: That poor model in the swimsuit! That thing was too small for her, but she squeezed into it and spilled out of it.

agree, it makes natasha poly, who's so skinny looks fat


i only like about 50% of this collection. When he strayed away from the tried and true, it just didn't work.

he sent the same sheer shirt on a man and a woman, so maybe that's why he can get away with it, even though bare male torsos are more acceptable in public. Does seem to be a bit of a double standard. I think it's equally silly for a man to wear a shear shirt as a woman.


As usual, I hate Kors's menswear. I wouldn't wear anything from this collection.

I did like a lot of the coats and dresses from this collection, and could see Michelle Obama wearing a few of these things.


Wouldn't it be fun if Princess was a contestant on Project Runway? I think he would be a safe middle but not a winner with this collection.

And, yes, I saw the giant anal beads too.


I actually enjoy the vinyl/plastic insert pieces--has a sort of Paco Rabanne vibe to it...


Some pretty stuff here and there, but if I want holes in my clothes, I will invite the moths in.

And I'm practically sure, pretty decided,almost 100% certain-- that I'm sick and tired of asymmetrical anything.


pickleschaparal:

"Am I the only one that saw those necklaces and thought anal beads?"

I hope so.

I'm glad to know I wasn't misremembering that MK blasted a former PR contestant for showing a sheer blouse. (And good grief, I just saw it yesterday. One would think I could retain something for at least 24 hours.) Eh. Maybe he's seen the light.


The best part about it is the necklaces. But I bought some beads very similar to those at Target 2 years ago, on clearance.


I saw the necklaces and thought "Clickety-Clacks" Back in the day of yor (early 70s) there were these beautiful glass balls on strings you would just bob and clack together. The trouble was, enthusiastic clackers wound up with shattered glass in their eyes.
Oh, and the clear insets reminded me "SO FINE," one of the worst movies on earth Starring Ryan O'Neil -- a satire of the designer jean craze... Okay, well thanks for indulging my trip down memory lane, luv, Gary


I like the ones with the wraparound zippers. I can definitely see Shelley O in the first white one. Love the collar on that one.
The rest are rather bland or look like PR challenges to use odd materials.


too many cats

When I started making my own shifts in the eighth grade, they were more flattering than MK's on the runway.
There's one fabric here that I'd love to work with, the multicolored but muted print and some of the knits that pick up those colors are lovely knits. But they've got these holes in them that will so date them as 2010. And they look to be cashmere, so getting a single year out of an expensive sweater...oh, Michael, surely you jest.


Kors usually plays it safe and I guess we can see why with some of these more "creative" designs. I liked most of it, but the sleeveless suit jackets for the men look so trashy to me, like muscle tees. I LOVE the silver sequined(?) dress with the sheer neck and hem. Also totally bothered by the boobies on display, and I'm no prude. To me it just seems unprofessional and unnecessary. I think he could have had her wear a nude cami or a white bandeau top underneath it and it wouldn't have compromised the piece at all.


I thought the same thing about Wendy Pepper! She's either feeling vindicated or murderous at this point. MK should watch his back.

Overall I really liked it. A little more interesting, a little more risk taking from a designer who certainly doesn't have to do either.

ShelbyDee


Some of it is quite cute, and I think the dresses with the clear plastic are at least interesting, but oh my God, that first swimsuit. Duchess, what were you even thinking? How could you make a swimsuit that makes that wisp of a girl look size me?

I laughed at the comment about Kors being a contestant on ProjRun, but I have to admit, I wonder. Looking at more than a few of these, I thought: "Congratulations, you're in. You may leave the runway."


Love most of it. LOVELOVELOVE the first blue dress. Thank you for the post, guys. I'm so glad you guys are doing the spring 2010 collections!


honesty.not.pc

"Hello Nipples"! Perhaps he took some tips from Wendy on how to put together a show.


Hmm, why these designers want to have super thin models and then they make models wear the most unflattering clothes that make them to look like they have gained at least 20 pounds. I wonder. For example the third picture of that bright blue dress, eh... But some of these looks are gorgeous and interesting at least.


I have to admit I got a kick out of the sweaters with the extra pair of sleeves. I thought it was a whimsical touch, and it reminded me of the M. C. Escher drawings where you say, "The chair has four legs...no three! No four!" As if you had a sweater draped around your neck, Preppy style, but you turn around, and there's no second sweater there. Weird, but subtly weird, not like an Ari Fish creation or anything.

As someone who loves to fiddle with her clothes, I could see myself having a ball sitting in a boring meeting, untying and retying those extra sleeves, slipping my hands in and out of the slits in the real sleeves, etc.


The mens wear is pretty great, as are the bathing suits but, if those skirts and dresses are making the models look bottom heavy women who aren't models should STAY AWAY.


Wow..it looks like MK finally ran out of creative juice. Most of the pieces had design elements so derivative of previous PR contestant's work that it was actually shocking to me to look at the photos. The Wendy Pepper boobie critique he made that several other people wrote about also came instantly to mind when viewing this collection. What is happening to him? It made me sad to contemplate the answer to that question. He may have just jumped the fashion shark..


My favorite part was the clear chunky jewelry...is that bad? That's bad right.

I want you at the table at whatever

As for Mr K - White suite -yes
Bare little model bumps - sad. And...no.

I'm a little dismayed that the duchess went all "hello nipples" after ripping into Wendy Pepper about it. Although that was some years ago and he's a major designer, she isn't, so maybe he can get away with it. LOVE his menswear though...especially those that play with the traditional collar. If I were not such a lard, I'd wear them.


Ok, aside from the fact that several of these models look like they're about to keel over and die (seriously- this past year I've noticed that designers are simply choosing models based on their size, rather than on actual attractiveness-lots of mannish women too, though not in this particular show)...
StkrShock- I too am loving the white suit. It would be a perfect work outfit, and I am a huge fan of white.
Nothing earth-shattering here. But clean, (mostly) flattering, and beautifully tailored. I like!


I like the color palette, and especially that silver bluish iridescent fabric. But those shapeless shift dresses remind me of my mother's housecoats, and that first swimsuit left the model with a side pooch, it kind of looks like a skin colored cellphone accessory on her hip.

Also, where has Kors been? Even Nina wasn't around for the last 2 episodes. I haven't heard any explanation, but maybe I missed it. The show now feels like the Waltons after ma and pa moved to Arizona and cousin Rose was left with all the awkward bad acting adolescents.


I would like to call a moratorium on one-sleeved clothing, particularly one-sleeved sweaters or dresses that are meant to be worn in cooler weather. I realize this is a Spring collection, but a cashmere sweater that's sleeveless on one side and long-sleeved on the other just looks absurd to me. When can you actually wear something like that?

I was disappointed in this collection. The sheath dresses and shifts are all so poorly fitted that I realized it was intentional, and I begin to wonder if Kors doesn't have a latent streak of misogyny.


We have entered the Age of the Clavicle.

Which I guess makes Jerell a herald.


Most of these pieces make the models look thick... the 85-pound, stick-thin models...

Yeah...


I love this. I don't mind one-sleeve dresses when executed properly. I really like the color palette (even if it is "boring"). The silhouettes are classic and very pretty. I like the zippered cut-outs very much.

There were a few that didn't work but overall I'd wear very many pieces from this collection.


I was disappointed in this collection. The sheath dresses and shifts are all so poorly fitted that I realized it was intentional, and I begin to wonder if Kors doesn't have a latent streak of misogyny.

Oh yeah, Kors has just been appointed the new head of the National Association Opposed To Woman Suffrage. Their new members include:
-Jason Wu
-Marc Jacobs
-Peter Som
-Narciso Rodriguez
-Alexandre Herchcovitch
-Alexander McQueen
-Gareth Pugh
-Karl Lagerfeld
-Every Shoe Designer, Ever.


I was disappointed in this collection. The sheath dresses and shifts are all so poorly fitted that I realized it was intentional, and I begin to wonder if Kors doesn't have a latent streak of misogyny.

I think that's reaching quite a bit. Granted, I don't know much about Kors outside Project Runway, but I've never gotten the misogynist vibe, ever.

I think the shift dress are geared more toward a woman of a certain age who wants to look feminine (lady-like as my grandma would say), but not show off every curve. It's not a look for me, but my mother would look really lovely in some of those dress.


he had trouble with proportions
some of the dresses are too big for the models it seems
some pieces look good but some are messy...as many said
some pieces are nice...
overall: 7 out of 10


You know, I liked it. I even liked the plastic numbers. I liked the lush fabrics and the palette and the big baubles.

I agree with Tlo, no new ground breaking here, but that's not Kors.


Jesus, pickleschaparal.

Hope you realize that you've just scarred a bunch of innocent females for life with your idle reference to "anal beads". (I can now relate to my husband, when he blanches at TV commercials for tampons & douches.)


Is there an extra-terrestrial theme to this collection? Because half those models look like f'ing aliens. Wtf?

As for the clothes...meh. Some are beautiful, some, not so much. Nothing earth-chattering.

The necklaces WERE nice when I first saw them. Now, Thanks to Pickles, all I can think are the freaking humongous anal beads. :cry

And nipples are never an issue with me, but they have to a purpose. This just looked a little desperate...I dunno.

The swimsuit... Poor model. Way to make a size 0 feel overweight.


Anyone seen Top Chef Masters?

Wouldn't it be THE GREATEST if they did a Project Runway version, with Michal Kors, Diane Von Furstenberg, Alberta Ferreti, et al competing?!!

Quick--get me Andy Cohen on the horn!

Ooh, third this. I can't even think who could wear that suit.

And man, are these models alien looking. This collection is just off putting. Between the scary models and the clothes that make the tiny aliens look heavy, it's just not good. I've never really liked MK's style though, so it's no stretch that I wouldn't like these either.


Theoretically, peekaboo nipples should be more acceptable on men than women, but in practice it's far worse on men.

Why is it that see-through fabric over a man's nips seems more immodest than nudity? Ew.


Why with the nip exposure?
Its not hip or shocking anymore it just looks stupid.
Besides that it is a pretty collection.
Hope he gets back on PR soon, it really is suffering without Nina or Mr. Kors.


I'm baffled at the number of comments saying that these clothes make the models look fat, thick, or overweight... Really?


I would call this the Slash, Sash & Zipper Collection.

It's an attempt to make Upper Crust Wasps feel edgy.


those dresses with the clear-plastic cut outs are a bit classless. if it were done in a sheer fabric rather than outright clear, it would have looked miles better. but the shiny clear plastic is just tacky looking, all they need are some extremely fake looking 'leather' boots and they're ready for "work".


nips? Slutty slutty slutty ...


Terrible makeup. I'm afraid those models are going to eat me.


Somebody PLEASE teach male models how to walk the runway. Or did they all have hemorrhoids?


I wonder, Anon, if all the male models have the gigantic ANAL BEADS up their collective asses (thank you pickles!!).

Blah, blah, blah, okay, blah, blah, yuck!, blah...etc.

The only dress I really liked was the irredescent gray layered, but it was one shouldered and I am SOOO tired of that look. So tired.

I did like the fact that the dresses weren't up to the models' cooters as we see so often.

The cutouts with the plastic for the most part just didn't jive with me. Done much better in the 60's.


Like the color pallette, althought it doesn't seem springy to me. Think how awful those things with the vinyl inserts will look when they steam up when the weather gets warm. Ugh! (Must now google anal beads...learn so much on the 'net :-) )


Sewing Siren said:

"I'm baffled at the number of comments saying that these clothes make the models look fat, thick, or overweight... Really?"

Oh, those girls are beyond thin, no question about it. But have no doubts that that kid in the swimsuit will *think* she needs to lose weight.

I think people mean that makes them look overweight in the sense that the clothes are too small for them (which is absurd, btw. What size is that swimsuit? -1?), not that the girls look fat per se. They are obviously anything but.


i'm not dorothy gale

Peek-a-boo, Duchess L'Orange! There is nothing I covet or admire.


I thought it was pretty and wearable not earth shattering, but a solid collection. Some of the shifts would look better on women with curves to give them some shape.

Until now I have never heard of anal beads. Ick.


See, the problem with the nipples is that they're distracting. I wasn't looking at the clothes. I was looking at the nipples. And thinking "wow, those are some small nipples!" Then when I saw the second one with the really see-through shirt, I scrolled back to compare her nipple size with the first one's. The first one's nipples were smaller, in case you're wondering.

I hate the word "nipple."

And do anal beads come in clear? I've never seen clear ones, but I'm not an expert.

Huh...was this thread supposed to be about a runway show or something?


I bet Michael Kors has small nipples.

Nina Garcia, on the other hand-- like salami slices.

Tim probably has no nipples... too vulgar.


The plastic inserts only work on the swimsuits.


Yawn.

A couple of cute sweaters and accessories, though.


asparagus lust

Good job, Mikey! You deserve to be on top of the heap with a collection like this. Liked the plastic bits. Liked the men's wear, just right. The dalmation inspired spots a great choice. Wow to the glittery black and silver shifts with nude fabric on the end (and one on top) - sexiest things I have seen in a long time. Good idea about the extra sleeve sweaters, shape and colors perfect, but not executed right. Just tied extra up on top and normal sleeves may have worked.

Shifts all so clean and wearable. Thanks for such a lovely and satisfying show.


Buzzed Aldrin

Small nipples are just wrong. What's the point of such tiny nipples? Nipples should be big and round and have nice nipply nubs. They should look like eyeballs or billiard balls. They should lay flat and soft until wakeup time and then shoot out like atomic rocket erasers. With flames.
Big nipples with flames. Yeah.


Heavens to murgatriod what are anal beads!!!!!!!

NO don't tell me!!!


These are the first zipper-accented clothes I've liked - just about every little dress with the zipper accents were appealing.

I don't get it though, Kors does WEAR menswear, yet the stuff he shows for men is either ridiculous or unflattering or ho-hum. The sleeveless suit had some appeal, but I'm not sure where most men would find an opportunity to wear it. I doubt Mr. Kors himself is going to show up to judge in it. (Not without a few months of gym time, anyway).

All I could think of looking at the sweaters with extra sleeves - does Kors know that aliens are among us?

All in all, if bought designer clothes as routinely as I shop Steinmart, I'd no doubt find a Kors or two to purchase every year - no fireworks, but attractive and wearable.


*vegan: That poor model in the swimsuit! That thing was too small for her, but she squeezed into it and spilled out of it.

I thought so too until I saw the footage, when she moves, it is not as unattractive as in the screen cap for some reason.

I love the shoes and wonder about the "walk" crossing one leg in front of the other sure makes the hips sway, and perhaps that is effect he wanted?

I couldn't stop chuckling to myself as I watched the video, pretty, pretty, pretty, GOD NO, pretty, pretty . . .

thanks t-lo!

(perhaps the duchess was prepping for the previous fashion week when she went missing from PR6 all these weeks in a row?)


I was in a Michael Kors store today at the mall and saw the "Heidi" purse and loved it - but at over $1200, could not justify the purchase. I was very sad.


I can't wait for Project Runway Season 7, when Michael Kors shows up in one of his bleach accident patterned suits.

And after the designers stop laughing...Heidi turns to him and asks, "Why the boobs in your Spring collection? Couldn't you afford bras?"


Anal beads are a delightful invention .. a string of beads that you shove up your butt then pull out, bead by bead, and they pop pop pop pop pop out of your hole and it feels really neato.
Cousin to Ben Wa Balls, which are cool because you can utilize those public.


I give it thumbs up for the most part, but not really loving the clear insets.

Wow, I could have gone my whole life without knowing what anal balls are and been perfectly happy. Ditto for Buzzed Aldrin's nipple preferences.

After criticizing the models for being too thin, now we're starting on their nipples? lol


First things I thought of were "Wendy Pepper's booby shirt" and I think I saw Diana Eng's "Goddess lingerie" in there too...


I apologize for any of you who were scandalized, I just calls 'em like I sees 'em.


yeah, um, no. Definitely seemed like an episode of PR where everyone had to give their take on Michael Kors.

Unlike Master Chef's who can and still do cook, I doubt if Michal Kors, Diane Von Furstenberg, Alberta Ferreti, Marc Jacobs or et al have seen a needle and thread in years.

I think Kors only wears black.

TampaBay


Tampabay-- I'm sure you're right. But, wouldn't that make such a show all the more delicious to watch?

It's entirely possible that people like DVF have NEVER sewn themselves, but all Parsons graduates (such as Michael Kors) have been put through the paces, and know how to sketch, drape, and sew.

Whether designers could be induced into appearing on such a show is another matter entirely...


pickelschaparal said: I apologize for any of you who were scandalized, I just calls 'em like I sees 'em.

pickles, I wasn't scandalized, although my husband often teases me for being *such* a Catholic girl. : ) I know what anal beads are and I figure "whatever blows up your skirt", so to speak. But I've been confused by the apparent obsession some of the posters here have with vagina imagery, and now there are sex aids to contend with too! It's shocking, I tell you. Shocking.


I hate to say it, but his men's wear--especially the bird poop printed suits--scream, "PLEASE KICK MY ASS."

I'm boycotting the dutchess until I see him back in the judges seat on PR.


That powder blue dress (in the 4th row) has an interesting take on the Wilma, and is sort-of a prim deconstruction of a classic silhouette. I like the way those same diagonal lines and slices appear throughout the collection.

Some of those dresses make me think he was designing with Michelle Obama in mind.

--GothamTomato


The two where a cutout is in the skirt part make it look like the models are having their undergarments pulled down.


I liked this collection. It reminds me of 1960's Andres Courreges -- i.e. retro space age. I also think that most of the dresses are really easy to wear -- nothing to it, just pull over the head, zip, and go. I would love to have one or more of those zippered shifts with the short sleeves.


Love it!!!


Who the hell is really wearing a men's sleeveless suit? Thats just stupid.
And those drapey dresses remind me of the inside of a coffin.
But SOME of it is gorge.


I like the sweaters a lot.


Anal Beads and Flaming Nips....oh the Duchess would be so proud of us !
LMAO!


NIPPLE ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!


NO, I did not think of anal beads (what the fuck?), and I'm not going to scroll back up to see if I can figure out what the hell it's all about. I thought he had gone far enough with the teats-on-display deal, never occurred to me that was just the tip of the iceberg.


It turns out that I dislike extra sleeves nearly as much as I have come to dislike the one sleeve look.

I must agree that some of that is straight out of PR.

Come on, Princess, you can do so much better.


In Ontario, women now have the right to go out with bare chests, same as men - so if so inclined, a woman in Toronto could wear the see-through shirts.

Personally, I would pair it with a simple tank.

It's a beautiful collection with a few things that indeed were off-centre. The plastic? no. I don't like the slashes in the sweathers, and the midriff-baring dresses were all out for me, but the fabrics were gorgeous, the suits were both wearable and interesting, and the colours were beautiful.


The bathing suit in the fifth row of pictures is a tragedy. He's made that poor little girl look like an overstuffed sausage!

And, really, if it makes a skinny kid like that bulge in bad places, what on earth is it going to do with an average physique?

~ Ri


Wall Street meets Zorro!!!!


NO MORE 80's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I wasn't able to get online yesterday... but WOW NOONE commented on the model(s) looking like they could bench press a car?

The first pic (blond) looks like a cross between a east german gymnast or weightlifter. Another had arms like Madonna's freakish arms. So disctracting - and some of the clothes were very nice.

I happen to love acrylic - in jewelry and furnishings. So NO I don't see it pickles.


Am I the only one that saw those necklaces and thought anal beads? Big, gigantic, anal beads.

Well, hell. I was going to say I really liked the beads, but now I've got that very disturbing image in my mind.


The pretty, sleeveless shift dresses are a safe silhouette, but one I already own many iterations of, and the asymmetry and cutouts aren't going to work in real life for most of us.

But I loved the accessories! i thought the big translucent beads were brilliant and I LOVED the little clutch purses, which I might have to go find a way to buy ASAP. -victoria
