Fine, I Was Wrong


I made fun of a hideous pants-skirt combination from McQ, but now I see that the pants-skirt is pretty damn good. As long as it’s Comme des Garcons. This ruffly one is saved by the leather buckles. I’d tap that.   But this other one with the more traditional kilt (straight front, pleated back) now that makes my heart race*.


Grown-ups, go straight to Colette online before the 9 year old bloggers get to them!

* Just kidding. Is there another phrase I can use? What about “that makes me hard?” Suggestions!

    A couple of nights ago I heard the expression “Girly Woody” and laughed til I cried.

    Don’t want to sound like a conspicuous consumer, but I went to the CdG Black store on Mon when it opened here (in NY). I did get a pair of those drop crotch pants that look like you are wearing diapers, but they look so effortlessly cool on when I wear them with platforms of heeled sandals. If you want me to pick up the skirt pants thing for you, let me know. I think it will be cheaper than colette. And the harem pants are sold out at colette already!

  4. In 8th grade( a million years ago) I used to wear pants and skirts at the same time. Today, if I did that or if I ever bought a Marie Osmond doll these both would be warning signs that I have a serious neurological disease and need a MRI.;-) These are cute but not for me.

    I’ve been an avid user of “girl-on” for a while now, but I see it’s gaining in popularity and being used by lots of people I don’t like, so I need to find a new term too.

    I wonder what ridiculous name the fash pack will christen this garment with. Skrousers? Pantirts?Skirants? I can’t wait.

    I like ‘girl-on’ but I sense it will soon be in a movie with someone like Sandra Bullock. How about ‘makes me creamy’?

    CdG black shop is for chicks only, right? For dudes, all the CdG stuff at Barney’s is marked down to nothing.
