Hi everyone, this very late edition of Fashion Sensei Says… comes with some fancy new fonts that I have been experimenting with. I just discovered that there is a new edition to Windows Live Writer so I have been playing with some of the new features.
My apologies for the scarcity of posts. I think the stomach virus’ that have been wreaking havoc in my household have finally subsided (fingers crossed).
The NY Times is blaming Marc Jacobs for the new skirt trend seen on Paris runways during Men’s Fashion Week. Designers, including Number (N)ine, Comme des Garçons, Yohji Yamamoto, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Rick Owens- all had fellas strutting their stuff in skirts. What no minis? On second thought, I don’t want to see that either. [Photo Source: Vogue.com]

Someone reportedly paid $2,025 on eBay for a pair of Naughty Monkey shoes that Sara Palin wore during her campaign for Vice President. The shoes that regularly retail for $100 were sold by a person who identified herself as Palin’s niece. As a bonus- the Alaskan Governor is supposed to sign the shoes too. [the cut]
I did a little searching and found the exact same pair on Endless.com marked down to $86.90. I mean if you want to be a Naughty Monkey, why not go for a pair of shoes like these?
I “Double Dare” you…
Check out more about Governor Palin on the cut, where they also report her $180k wardrobe has been stuffed away in garbage bags.
Forgive Me For Finding Humor In the Following Statement…
I was just reviewing a long list of press releases and this one struck me as funny: “L.L. Bean Recalls Ice Cleats Used During Winter Weather Due to Fall Hazard” [PR Newswire] Man that sucks.
This One’s Not So Funny…
“Vermont Teddy Bear’s Limited-Edition ‘Recession-Proof Love’ Bear Brings a Bit of Humor to this ‘Bear Market’ “ [PR Newswire]
There’s nothing humorous about losing 40% of your 401k’s value. Nor would I want a broke bear to remind me of it.
