Couture or Coutrash: The Silk Pajama Pant

14 Feb


Well this is just brillant! This trend will not be everyone's cup of tea, thankfully for me I LOVE tea! I think this look is better captured with a vintage influence. Think 1970's Halston silk pajamas. Wait? Did Halston even make pajamas. No matter, if they made them I will find them!

Couture or Coutrash: Bondage Tights

21 Jan


I coined the term "Coutrash" last year on my blog. Coutrash is a poser of  a trend or design trying to pass off as Couture. What say you? Are you a lover of these tights?!  My vote: total couture!  I love the edgy look these tights would give to otherwise demure outfit. One warning though, googling "bondage tights" can bring up some not so demure pictures.

Shoes of Horror

21 Oct


Normally, I try and keep an open mind about fashion because, I feel it's the Designer's right to interpret their own creative vision. In this case I'm inclined to think otherwise. If I ever attempted to wear any of these shoes I believe the results would be fatal to both my style and life. What do you think…Couture or Coutrash?
