Monday Mashup: Miley Takes Manhattan

miley cyrus new york skirtOh, Miley.  You can take the girl out of the country… and put her in a cityscape printed skirt, I suppose.  Listen, I think it’s clear how much I love New York, but I don’t even own, dare I say, an I <3 NY t-shirt.  I appreciate her adoration of Gotham, but from what I can deduce from her outfit, she’s a big fan of Batman.  I mean, look at her bustier.  Tell me it doesn’t resemble the Batmobile.  Is she a walking diorama?  Is she acting out her own Batman sequel wherein she swoops in and saves our fair city?  And what would Lady Liberty say?  Bitch stole my look?

So is Miley’s skyline one you’d like to see?



Why Did You Wear That: You Can Ring My Biel

jessica biel fendiLet’s go ahead and start off by saying it takes a whole heck of a lot to make Jessica Biel look bad.  That face, that hair, that body.  She’s working with all the right equipment, so when I saw this picture of her traipsing all over Paris in this over the top get up, I had to hold an intervention.  Girl, why so much?  At first I just assumed this had to be a costume for some upcoming movie role about an 80’s hair band or something, but lo and behold, she was just shopping at Fendi.  Yikes.  To be fair, I’d actually like each of the pieces if worn individually, but the combination of the jacket, top, pants, and boots is just too much.  I like studs as much as the next gal, but this just seems to be a bit overkill.  Thoughts?



Why Did You Wear That: Better Late Than Never

emmys 2012 red carpetMy computer clearly didn’t want my opinion on this year’s Emmy Awards Red Carpet, but I don’t believe for one minute that you guys didn’t.  Afterall, my two cents is more like a million bucks.  So, here we go.  Above are my four favorites from the evening, while below, well…

emmys red carpet 2012So, some curtains, a banana, a gingerbread man, and a mermaid walk into a bar.  Okay, I’ve got nothing, but wouldn’t that have made a great joke?  If you’ve got one, please do share.  While all of these ladies are quite lovely, their red carpet garb was anything but.  I just can’t understand how Emmy nominated actresses can’t afford full length mirrors… or a competent stylist.

And the winner is…

Why Did You Wear That: Not Your Grandma’s Lace

doilyToo often, crochet is associated with that of the decorative little doilies on the back of grandma’s couch.  And while that may be the case for some of us, let’s hope it’s the exception rather than the rule.  This summer, there is no knit more noteworthy than that of crochet as demonstrated by these three darlings.  Whether you are an uptown girl, downtown diva, or just happen to be hanging around, there is a look for you.
