Now on to the B's
Band of Outsiders...introduces Girl... I like Band of
outsidersbecause they are based in my hometown of
LA...I always saidif I were a guy it would be one of my
go to brands, and then they created Boy, and it was a
reason for me to stop trying to pull off their men's clothing,
which was probably to big for me anyway....(but I am a girl
who always went into her dads closet to borrow flannels,and
sweaters etc.. since about 14)...anyway they introduced Girl,
a more feminine side to the brand,... along with their
spring 11 collection and boy its good....
Bensoni.....I am now a huge fan...this line is the
collaboration of Benjamin Channing Clyburn and Sonia
Yoon, designers who met at Parsons School of Design...
this is not the first Parsons collaboration which has proven
to be golden (Proenza Schouler). I appreciate the beautiful
floor length skirts and dresses, and the long jumpers. I am a
huge fan of floor length skirts/ dresses, and love to rep them
even if I am not on the tall side. They're effortlessly
beautiful, and I need to save up for one of these below....
BCBG Max Azria..... ok I wasn't even going to look, but then I
only thought it was fair...and I am very glad I did....they
took a refreshing spin with this collection...with simple
and elegantly chic these dresses, its what is missing out
there right now, sometimes simplicity is just as dramatic
and effective as the intricate or geometrical designs...I am
also aBIG advocate of pockets on dresses, even beautiful
silk ones, so it makes me very pleased to see this in their
I need to pick out a dress for November because my pops is
Man of the Year for City of Hope this year, and I am kind of
sad these won't be available until the spring...there are
about7 I would be more than happy to wear...oh well...Dad
can you get honored for something else awesome in the
Springplease?.....I need to have one of these dresses
Betsey Johnson...oh Betsey....the past couple seasons have
been not so good...I grew up loving this woman, and her
edgy yet feminine quality. She could take a pretty floral print
and make it bad ass. She created sexy,cool.... The beginning
of the show was...well..more like Halloween 2010?... but
towards the end of the show I was glad to see some old Betsy
coming back...I will start with the good
Now the not so good.....I mean I guess I have to give her
props for her balls?.....you decide...
