rebecca vs. rowan
i love everything about this issue of rebecca, which arrived in the mail yesterday. i want to make all of the above. in no particular order. my fave is the blue bell-sleeved kimono-coat. this would be so beautiful in kidsilk haze "trance."
in the same package, but seemingly from another planet, is the rowan spring book. while i love some of the designs (namely, carolina) i am a tad mystified about some others. namely, the entire pirates of the caribbean section.
who does this guy think he is--john galliano? or johnny depp playing john galliano playing keith richards? anyway, i'm not sure any of the above could pull off the wearing of the concho belt "necklace." (though i would like to know who waxes his eyebrows.)
here's another that had me scratching my head:
i can only imagine the exchange that led to this fetching ensemble. let's see, shall we go with the pucci headscarf or the hat? yes. how about this stack of bracelets, necklaces, earrings and tyrolean fanny pack? hmmm...is that all you've got?
and what's with the oversized floral print shirt? it looks like they snatched it off a guy in sansabelts at OTB. the end result: carmen miranda meets fred mertz. in a final blow to minimalism, they apparently couldn't resist topping off their creation with a rabbit foot key chain. (no, i am not kidding. click on the image and you will see it with your own eyes.) the sad part is i really like the knit top she's wearing.
[sigh.] where the HELL is my chiffon?
