The Scene
Big launch goes well today. Only at work until 9 pm. Sigh.

Watch Stylista when I get home. Someone I know worked on the production so I am happy to report that, well, at least the production values are high.

Unfortunately everyone on the show is a caricature. An unlikable, unfunny caricature. No Tim Gunn loveliness in sight. No Michael Kors witty banter to be found. And I had heard that Anna Wintour wannabe can't walk in heels but GOOD LORD she looks hobbled.

I'll keep watching it. But I won't like it ;)

The Outfit
JCrew dress
Image wrap dress

The Accessories
Faux Prada sunglasses
Chanel bag
Fashion District necklace
Louis Vuitton earrings
Evan Piccone slingbacks

The Grade

The Commentary
Got dressed with visions of Prada parading around in my head.

Love the cut of this JCrew dress - the deep V in the front and back, the structured waist, the prim hem length. Got it resale a few years ago. $15. Am sure it retailed for at least 5x that price.

The print is a subtle floral. But can you see it looks a little like lace too? The vintage slingbacks with the pretty cutouts looked a little like lace to me too. So added the bright pink accessories to match and jazz everything up.

My recessionista version of this Vogue page. Adore.

p.s. Check out Posh Spice in a lace mini and those amazing Rodarte spiked shoes I've been loving since August. So lucky that ducky.

I watched Stylista and totally thought of you. Nobody on that show would remotely be your competition.

right on about the hobbling anna wintour wannabe! didn't pick it up when i watched the show, but upon second glance, she looks like me trying to navigate anything higher than a 2-inch heel - i.e., like an awkward 13-year-old walking in heels for the first time. eek!

and, seriously, it's a freakin' magazine - drop the attitude, lady! i despise people who take themselves that seriously.
