4 for Friday

First, as predicted by many, Nashville lived up to its golden pedigree.  This isn’t a show about country music per se.  It is a modern soap set in a town run by country music (which is a meaningful difference).  Connie Britton hasn’t ever disappointed me, and I’m so happy to see her strong performance drive this staring vehicle.  Hayden Panettiere isn’t really that good of an actress so I’m assuming she was typecast because she delivers a surprisingly nuanced performance.  In sum, Nashville is worth tolerating a twang for.

Are we boycotting the Isabel Marant knockoffs?  Some of the downmarket versions are cute, but isn’t it embarrassing to wear something when the inspiration is so obviously stolen?  A quandary for sure, especially for those on a budget.  My opinion?  The copies I’ve seen are a little too close, but not close enough to get it quite right.  This time save up for the real thing or pass altogether on this tired trend and start a new look that’s all your own.  With autumn comes a vengeance of sneezers and coughers.  I know these cold sufferers are feeling really sorry for themselves, but seriously, cover your mouth and wash your hands.  Here’s a novel notion: if you are that sick, stay home, sip tea, and ask yourself why you were Patient Zero among your clan during this season of sickness.

In the market for new workout wear?  I get so many compliments on my Margarita yoga pants made by hand in Israel.  They hold up as well as Lulu, but have much more personality.

 

Enough Herve

I’ve been trolling around for some ferocious looks for a wedding rolling up this Labor Day weekend and can’t believe the stale inventory at many boutiques.  After a few years of ubiquity, can we give the Herve Leger a rest please?  Holy fucking bandage dress enough is enough.Hardcore body-con has been over for quite awhile.  Even skanks who wore this look two years ago donned it two years too late since this shit hasn’t looked fresh since before oh-eight.  Let’s move on from the shrink wrapped look to something a little less obvious and desperate.  Hate to break it, but as you can see, the silhouette is not as forgiving or wearable as many girls would like to believe.Courtesy of Max Azria, Leger’s one trick pony has pranced up and down the runway with slight variations for several seasons.  Is that all you got Herve?  I’m sick of the same old tired tea.  Give me something fresh please.Seriously, this glorified spanx shit is so boring.  I know I’m not the first to raise this objection, but this dress keeps coming back.  Please don’t; promise you won’t.
