Shorty Swing My Way

Let me preface by saying I love Lindsay Lohan, in any and all permutation: redhead, blonde, freckles, no freckles, boobies, no boobies. And although I don't, uh, play for the other team, I only wish that she would have at least called me before she started dating Samantha Ronson*, because I could have given her the love she needs. And she could have given me the diamond rings I deserve. And my love for exposed zips is well documented, from the side zips on skinny track pants to an excellently slutty sweatshirt dress from express that I can't seem to find a pic of online. When you combine my two only loves, you get:

That's right, from the Lindsay Lohan collection, the "Dom Legging"! (Although another style comes with kneepads; you would think they would be called the Dom, but are actually called Dear Mr. President, which perhaps implies that Linds knows more about the JFK/Marilyn murder conspiracy than we would have previously expected her to)


Not so much these, though; you might like them if you get cold ankles.

*until I wrote this post, I had always assumed that Sam and the other Ronsons were only famous because they were the kids of Mick Ronson, David Bowie's old guitar player. But they're not. They are just the wealthy offspring of a real estate developer. That's right, kinder, just be born wealthy and you too can make a living as a Hollywood scenester. Frink out.

Gothic/Preppy: How Do I Wear It?

This will be the first in the series Gothic/Preppy, where we (and by we I mean I) take an item of clothing and show you how to mix it two ways, whatever your taste may be.

Well, friends, this is it: the item that straddles the line effortlessly between gothic and preppy:

the insouciant sleeve zips, the cropped length, the short sleeves for heaven's sake. Had I only world enough, and cash, it would be mine. And here's how I'd style it:


I've been craving a pair of black thigh high boots for God only knows how long; after finally finding an inexpensive pair at a local shoe store, imagine my horror to read that thigh high boots have been named one of Fall 08's trends. It's ok though, I thought of it first. Here mixed with an 80s dress that I don't have yet, but the price is right so I might add it to the arsenal. And of course the deathless Chanel cassette clutch, which was once nearly mine as well. But that's another story for another time.


I have this shirt, inspired by Lulu, but in my own misguided move, lopped the sleeves off. It's better for Florida summer though, so who gives a rat's ass? The booty shorts and keds is a combination I rock more than I probably should given my age and the increasingly worrisome state of my thighs. And of course, the requisite Chanel bag.
*NB: why is it that Chanel is the preferred luxury designer of the scenester set? Nearly every girl you see set loose from Daddy's viselike grip, finally allowed to dye her hair black and wear sneakers to a club, ugh has a pair of diamante C's tacked to either ear. Or worse, incorporated into a tattoo. How terribly gauche.

just a quick one

I don't normally (at all, actually) enjoy Zac Posen, the man or the clothes. I tried on one of his flowy gowns once and didn't see the appeal; it looked like a grocery sack. However this dress, on Leighton "Who Bogarted the Doritos" Meester is enough to end the feud that has endured, Hatfield and McCoy-like, ever thus:
