Do you remember the song?

If you, if you could return
Don't let it burn, don't let it fade
I'm sure I'm not being rude
But it's just your attitude
It's tearing me apart
It's ruining everything

I swore, I swore I would be true
And honey so did you
So why you were you holding her hand
Is that the way we stand
Were you lying all the time
Was it just a game to you

But I'm in so deep, you know I'm such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

For some reason this pic makes me hear "Linger" in my head but the one singing is Courtney Love with Dolores's voice, it's all that 90's revival crap, I swear I'll start dreaming of my middleschool crush any day now. Well the decade did have good music.

Are you safe for me to wear you lace socks?

So I could bet these dainty lace socks are really soft (being Marchesa and all the quality of the lace most be good) and would look amazing with the right outfit, but since the models didn’t walk any runway my guess is they are slippery as in from 0 to 30 seconds your face is on the sidewalk or you kick your left shoe to the head of the person walking infront of you on said sidewalk or you hail a cab only to find yourself sans one or both shoes when climbing in, I could go on with the silly examples of what can go wrong when friction is absent from the sock/shoes interaction but you already get where I’m getting at. I wonder if they are an easy DIY…

Ralph Lauren and The Last Emperor

Ralph and team took a trip to their DVD collection when gathering inspiration for fall. To me it screamed The Last Emperor as soon as I saw the clothes…yeah big memory for movie wardrobes…it seems China is the 3 piglets to retail’s big bad wolf, but designers please do stop brownnosing, how many Chinese inspired collections so far? (Chanel I’m looking at you) Not a bad thing just a bid too obvious.

But back on the movie thing, the glasses and hairstyle is full Puyi a.k.a. The Emperor.

Traditional cuts (think cheongsam or qui pao) mixed with 1920’s fabrics and lotsa fur: straight out of the closet of the Empress and Concubine (dude had 5 wives but only 2 are featured on the film).

This is wife numero tres Tan Yuling

And permeating the whole offering is bad girl Eastern Jewel a.k.a. his cousin the spy, raised in Japan she apparently did not have China’s best interest at heart, but girlfriend had bad ass style (she was big on menswear).

Hello jewelry! Loved the dangling earrings especially.

It totally works!

This outfit proofs that a white dress can work beautifully with black shoes (you know it could visually shorten our legs and we never want that). So yeah keeping an eye on the shape and length of things…obviously having long legs like Elettra here also helps.

Let's not go there...

It's on bitches! (well since yesterday but I was otherwise engaged)
Just one quip so far with this very 90’s-hide-the-pictures moment on the runway courtesy of Vena Cava, I mean yeah we loved Nirvana and the dark lipstick, go grunge! But I never rocked the baby T, I HATED it. This look just brought back bad fashion memories. The makeup I totally loved even if it is so school project with glitter landing in your face…which is completely fitting since yeah the 90’s equals school to me.
 Just say no to the baby t.
