Rant: Someone Needs To Take The Fashion Designer That Decided Aztec Prints Were Gonna Be The “Thing” This Year Behind The Woodshed…

2013-12-13 12.16.11Someone Needs To Take The Fashion Designer That Decided Aztec Print Fashion Was Gonna Be  the “Thing” This Year Behind The Woodshed and Pop a Cap in His/Her Ass.

Who was the high powered fashion magazine editor or designer that decided that Aztec print clothing was gonna be the rage this year?  I hope y’all don’t have any investments in retail because this shit just isn’t gonna sell and they’re gonna take some serious markdowns on this crap.  And it isn’t just like one or two retailers having it on their racks.  It’s like every single shop at the Mall has Native Aztec fashion front and center like it’s gonna revolutionize the fashion world.

Fire ‘em.  Fire ‘em all.  Every last woman’s clothing retail buyer should be fired on the spot for trotting out such ugly fashion this year.

Can’t we get back just a little bit to Jackie O?  Is that too much to ask?

I was walking through Nordstrom and they’re also pushing MC Hammer Pants for ladies.  For real???????  Oh and don’t even get me started on the whole high-waisted shorts thing.  Might as well bring back 80’s bangs and spiked up hair.

They ought to just hire your boy Joey to get them back on track.  You know the most unlikely joint of all that’s keeping things relatively normal- brace yourselves…. Sears Lands End for Men, Women and Children. If you would have told me I’d have more success shopping at Sears Lands End than Nordstrom 5 years ago I would have told you that you were crazy.  But the facts are the facts- when Nordies rolls out MC Hammer Pants, High-Waisted Jeans and Aztec clothing as this year’s “It” fashions you gotta call ‘em out on it and someone needs to lose their job in the buying department.  Bottom Line. End Of Story.

A Couple Of Notes About The 2013 Golden Globes

As far as award shows go ever since Ricky Gervais took over 4 years a go and now with Amy Poelher and Tina Fey taking over the hosting duties along with the nominations and award winners I feel like even though winning an Oscar has more cache I would a hundred times rather watch the Golden Globes.

The Oscars have just become way too pompous and arrogant as opposed to the more fun Golden Globes.

  • Ben Affleck winning best director for Argo was fantastic as a bitch slap to the Oscar snub even though I’m not particularly a Ben Affleck fan.
  • Jodie Foster came out in her acceptance speech.  Wait, what? This is news?   We didn’t know she was gay like 20 years ago????
  • This morning the television fashion critics awarded Hugh Jackman as best dressed man.  Now I have no idea how you award this category.  Women wear any different type of dress and you could easily critique their  style.  But a Tux on a man is a Tux on a man.  So I guess you give it to the best looking guy wearing a not  screwed-up tux.

There are two categories of Tuxedos.  A Tux, or some crazy variation of a tux where you look like an idiot.

There’s no gray area.

The Cutest Lobster Dress Ever!

I found this awesome Vintage Lisa Cobb/Saks Fifth Avenue lobster dress at a thrift store last night. I couldn’t pass it up! Originally, I wanted to add it to my online shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/Leeshalee (shameless plug), but now I’m having second thoughts and thinking of keeping it for myself! I have a Friend’s wedding in September and this dress would be perfect for their Maine Lobster Bake rehearsal dinner! Add a cute belt, strappy sandals and a September evening-Perfecto!

Todd Farm is Open!!!

For those of you who love a good Flea Market, Todd Farm in Rowley is open again. This, along with all the open fish shacks, is the sign that Spring has truly arrived.

Vintage stuff at ol' Todd Farm Flea Market.

I wrote a post on my blog about flea market fashion after going to Todd Farm yesterday. Here’s one of the stylin’ flea marketers I spied:

Nearly everything she's wearing is vintage flea market stuff. Just after I took this photo she promptly scored a scarf at the next booth. A real pro.

Let me know (email: therovinghome@gmail.com) if you find anything amazing this summer at Todd Farm and I’ll shout it from the rooftops via GMG! Happy hunting!
