I Spy With My Little Eye

Saw Michael Boulgaris in Ponsonby today. While it is lovely that he is growing a ‘tache for Movember, I do wish someone would wean him off the over-sized Gucci accessories - someone might mistake him for one of those homosexual types if he’s not careful.

Is leopard-print the new black?

The NY Times thinks so. Why not? All things trashy are now a la mode. We already have the ubiquity of the strippers Brazilian, suburban housewives pole-dancing... Next week, fashionistas everywhere change their names to Chynna or Shanahyah.

To my immense shame, I rather like the YSL gloves.

Are Russian Brides the new Filipino? Yes.

Cavalli is arriving at H&M Hong Kong tomorrow. Oooohhh I can't wait, Budget Cavalli.

I am thinking about purchasing a Cavalli for an upcoming wedding. It simply must go with the animal skins you have pictured.

Glamour cocktail.

Fuck yeah baby.

I am being sarcastic of course. Talk about killing your brand overnight.

What's next? Karen Walker H&M.

Michael has always been a lover of branded products. Before he made it big I used to tell him he drove a Clayton's BMW (and not Jerry Clayton) because he'd rather drive an old clapped out car with BMW insignia than risk being seen out and about in anything as tame as a Toyota (fair enough Miss Prozac wouldn't risk it either). Everything he owns is branded. The more obvious the label the better...

Oh the stories Miss Prozac could tell about Michael in his modelling days and the stretchy lycra he wore when he taught aerobics...

P.S. Don't joke about Karen Walker. Between the glasses and all her other forays into the wider world of fashion it's getting hard to escape her. Ditto Miss Frills Trelise

You Auckland folks are really quaint.

Shooting leopards is back in; wearing their pelts should be confined to bass drummers in the Brigade of Guards.

The sporting of accessories with wog names emblazoned on them is a mental defect.

What's with the barbed wire?

Cactus Kate said...

George is right.

H&M were all sold out.

This means all over Hong Kong soon we will be subjected to Asian women pretending to be squawking wild animals.

Mrs Smith said...

Why is selling one's soul to H&M so the thing right now? One can understand it from sad old has-beens like Kate Moss and Madonna - but Cavalli? Gucci by Kmart must be next.

Cactus Kate said...

Well it gets worse. So I go to H&M on a little fact finding mission and am stuck with the worst selection of fabric I have ever seen. You know, the cheap nasty K mart kind that repulses your fingers and heightens your senses only in a way that makes your nose shriek that it's not good enough to blow on. Not to mention the Cavalli I did see had a label Cavalli and a reference to H&M, I was in so much shock I didn't take a record. I did note that tapered jeans appear to be back in. Horror.

Trelise Cooper by The Warehouse.

THAT'S next.

Mrs Smith said...

Ignore the tapered jeans, Cactus, they're not really in fashion. Tapered jeans are just for those who don't realise that they make even the thinnest legs look like turkey drumsticks.
