fashion flipside

My aunty dearest emailed me a flyer for Fashion Flipside, a festival on the Lower East Side. Sounded cool, so I went with Abigail (F MINUS ASSISTANT, WHO FALLS ASLEEP DURING A RUNWAY SHOW?!). We arrived late but did see some pretty nice outfits, got free soda, got into our daily bitch fights with each other, and pet random dogs.

It was no Alexander McQueen HC but then again, it was just a show displaying clothes from boutqies on Orchard, Bleeker & Stanton so it wasn't to be expected. That said, it was still fun to watch for me and I took pictures for you all.

01

02

A great deal of the dresses are a bit TOO chocha friendly, if you know what I mean? It's probably because the models are all legs (for which I say I HATE YOU) but yes, I did see a flash of butt and I don't know if I'd pay boutique prices for something that barely covers my ass. I was digging this dress though, it's lacy and frou-frou.

05

This reminded me of Antoine Peters for some unknown reason (love you Antoine, your new collection rocks), and that chick that got eliminated from Project Runway for her anticlimactic dress. I like it, kinda? Ruffles = key to my heart, it's too juvenile for me to fall in love with though. Even ignoring the Lil' Mama pose.

06

I love love love this girl, she such a bombshell. My dad thinks she looks too Disney Princess in this photo, whatever. She has an ass, she has an epic cut, and I could mimic this look in a second with a quick trot to f21.

Cochas beware. This mini dress is very cute, and Mr Hat guy is very appreciative. Too much. Really.

09

Walk walk walk swish swish swish swish.

012

Ooooh Lanvin-y bellows! I loved watching her walk. I dislike the pattern on the material they used (jersey) because it made it look cheap. Then again any nod to Lanvin is on slippery territory for me... the original is just too fierce to touch.

013

Ignore the outfit. LOOK AT HER HAIR. I WANT IT. NOW.

016

Hmmm... is all I can say. I am such a helpful and articulate reviewer, right?

018

Oh hai there, Express months past gradient cocktail dress. How nice of you to show.

020

One of my favorite models, she reminds me of Chictopia. I want the skirt. Color combo = Richard Chai, pleats = "too many ideas in mah head" girl on Project Runway.

Oh, but my favorite look and model. Too fierce, just too fierce.

hooker fabulous

Call me. I'll be in this, waiting. *winks, walks back to corner*

It's not Yohji or Rei, by far, but at least it's nordstrom's. I would've enjoyed watching it, I'm glad you had fun,

Lady_V said...

The look on the model that reminds you of Chictopia is my favorite outfit.

alright i didn't know where else to tell you, but i had a dream with you in it last night, and i don't even know you :D but you lived like two houses down from my grandma and i went to your house to tell you i'm obsessed with your blog, but you weren't home. you had two little sisters that were dressed like ballerinas and your dad was sitting on this rocking chair by the door and he said "oh, she's not home, but you can stay if you like." then i went home and there was a huge landslide and we all died.

i don't have weird dreams or anything (: excuse my sounding like a complete stalker, sorry if i creeped you out with this. ha.

chloe. said...

that looks like it was tons of fun. I love the dresses & yes, the girl with the curly red hair did have amazing hair. So did the girl with the platinum blonde bob.

Lauren said...

aw I am visiting home but I wish I could of been there for that! My hair stylist is on the Lower East Side and I always check out the boutiques before/after getting my hair down. Followed by cheap eats in chinatown...I wonder if they marked down the dolce vita shoes in the shop again? And I think shop/iloveshop or whatever it's called on Orchard (or somewhere) has cute Jenny Yuen purses that I can't afford.

futurelint said...

what fun! Don't be so jealous of us red curly haired gals, it, like all things, gets old and I can't even dye it cause I would look stupid with any other color of hair... boo.

It is very important to store sterling pandora charms silver jewelry properly when it is not used. pandora charm The ideal place to store sterling silver jewelry is cool and away from sunlight. pandora charms uk Heat and light will turn a silver jewelry yellow and cause it to tarnish quickly. pandora charms sale Even indoor light source like florescent lights or light bulbs turn the color of silver jewelry over time. If you expect not to wear a certain piece for a long time, new pandora charms put it in a air-tight bag and store it in a drawer. Make sure the silver jewelry is not plated with any other metal before using the silver-dip or the plating will be damaged.
