Why Did or Why Don’t: Blame the French

chanel hula hoop bagChanel’s Srping 2013 show was much buzzed about in many thanks to the biggest Chanel bag you’ll never own.  Yes, that hula hoop she’s carrying is actually a very expensive beach tote.  I mean, why not?  How else are you gonna get your towel to the sand?  It’s not going to carry itself.

Well, what was most shocking to me was not the circus like accessories, but rather the manicures on the models’ lengthy fingers.  Oh yes, that’s right, they were sporting a little something that we like to call a French manicure.  Now, tell me I’m not alone here when I can only associate this particular manicure with acrylic tips and tanning beds.  Basically the only thing worse than a French manicure… is a French pedicure.  But alas, Chanel took it there.  Sure, some may call it a “classic” but to me, there is nothing modern about this classic and I’m not thoroughly convinced that this particular trend ever needs to make it back into the rotation.

    I too loathe the French pedi the hardest as your toe nails have to be a bit long to ( unsuccessfully) pull it off which is so gross, but unfortunately it is the fingernails that one sees more if. I think that the girl who has either and or both are also wearing hoop earrings to which I think, the bigger the hoop, the bigger the whore.
