a potpourri of silly fashion etcetera

Last night I was lucky enough to get guest-listed (thanks Sam Hunt!) for the sold out Lykke Li show at The Empty Bottle, which conveniently happens to be all of 1 block from where I’m staying.

It was a stimulating show and Lykke Li was excessively smart in a voluminous black linen caftan, which for most of the show, I assumed was floor-length because of the 7 deep breadth of dismayingly fixed hipsters obscuring my view. I communicated my frustrating curiosity as to the style of her shoes to my friend Meg when, as if sensing my laser eyes, Lykke Li randomly lifted her ankle high in her hand revealing that the caftan was indeed a tunic worn with black leggings and fairly innocuous wedged ankle boots. And of course her signature tangle of chunky gold chains. I approved.

Lykke Li

In the spirit of total randomness, here is the most self-indulgent bit of mid 80’s cockamamy from some thoroughly vacuous narcissistic daytime TV star who, after systematically documenting the contents of her closet (overusing the word “fashion” as if it was going out of style), apparently thinks we’re on the edge of our fucking seats to find out that she wears both orange rouge and powder blush simultaneously. But only sometimes. “Fashion is something that is acquired by looking at a lot of different fashions.”

(via the cheeky knitting blog knitters = angry mob, who apparently did not share my penchant for knitted skinny pants).

Some Hip Links for Vous:

    Trend de la Crème has hilarious suggestions for Sarah Palin on how to NOT spend $150,000 (no joke) on her campaigning wardrobe.

    Don’t miss the epic finalists for Daddy Likey’s Halloween Costume Story Contest!

    I’m absolutely dying over this midcentury Kent-Coffey dresser that Katherine at BackGarage scored for $50.

    Possibly one of the greatest inventions of the 21st Century. Bloglovin. It’s like Tivo for the internet!

Ok, it’s lecture time.
Darlings, I’m disappointed in you.
For one, I thought I taught you guys that free shit? Is the BEST shit.
B) I have $750 worth of free shit to give away to 3 Lucky girls.
Finally, as of this moment I only have TWO contest entries. WHAT GIVES?
PUT ON YOUR JEANS AND POSSIBLY (at this point very likely) GET $250 worth of FREE SHIT SHIPPED TO YOUR DOOR.

Thank you.
