Temporary Break

I have very sad, but very temporary news. I'm afraid that Fashion Poirot will not have any new posts for the following 2 weeks or so. My husband and child are very ill right now, not to mention that my workload- at my real job- is piling up. So, in the meantime, scroll down for my previous entries, and wish my family well!

I'll be back (as Ahnold would say),

Posh's Not-so-posh Shoes

I have a sort of love-hate relationship with Victoria Beckham. On one hand, she's kind of cool in an I-don't-give-a-flying-expletive-what-you-think-about-me kind of way, but on the other hand...some of her fashion choices are very dubious, but are considered the epitome of chic just because she's Posh. Well, take a look at these "Victoria" shoes she wore for a fashion shoot:

I'm terribly sorry, but in my book, those are stripper shoes. Or hooker shoes, whichever you happen to prefer. The shiny silver parts, ridiculously high heel and curved platform, plus the garish color and ankle strap do not spell "classy" to me. Am I alone in thinking this? Really? Is this elegance personified?

By the way...

...I have officially moved my other blog, Sweet Dreams, to Blogger as well. It is now renamed "Sweet Fashion Dreams", so check it out! It's all about my fashion loves that occasionally are just, well, sweet dreams. But if you like Fashion Poirot, head over there to see the yin to my yang. Or the yang to my yin. Whichever you prefer.

Rachel Bilson

Oh, no! Rachel! You can be so cute sometimes, and yet...

Stop smiling. Seriously. You should be ashamed of yourself. This is fashion week. You can't just knot one of the hotel towels around your neck and call it a dress. Dresses have shape. And even if they are fluid and loose, they drape gracefully. They don't stiffly sag down the front because the odd neck-brace-like contraption at the top is making weird creases. I also take issue with the black stripe on said neck brace. From afar, it looks like a very, very, very obvious bra slip. I hope it doesn't become a fad; Britney-chic is not my favorite look.

Anyway, Rachel, try wearing real clothes next time. You didn't fool anybody. And I am NOT going to mention how cute you look in that color, and how great your shoes and toenails look, and how your makeup is perfect...oh, rats. I just did.
