The Fashion Show: Rip it good!
Guess what we have? Opinions!
She’s making her triumphant return to the high waist here. This is a fab little outfit.
And the jacket upped the fab even more.
To be honest, that fabric’s a bit closer to ugly than to fab, but it’s such a well-designed and constructed little blouse that we don’t mind it.
Our only “issue” – and really, it’s not such an issue – is that it doesn’t exactly call to mind a grown-up goth look.
Except for maybe that, and that’s as much Flashdance as it is goth. Like we said, it’s not much of an issue. The entire challenge was vague and unrealistic, so we can’t hold it against her when we like the outfit so much.
Gotta say, as unlikable as she can be and as much as this look is outside of our comfort zone, it’s still a pretty great entry.
Look, “skater” is not our thing, and “adult skater/model in knee-hi boots with 4-inch heels” is NOBODY’S thing, but it’s an interesting look and it’s well put together.
It’s got some great details on it. It’s a judging cliche, but she “really thought about it.” To boot (pun intended), each piece is well-designed on its own. It works. To be honest, we were convinced she had it won because her pieces would have been a lot easier to translate and manufacture than Merlin’s.
It’s a little twee and costumey – more “elf” than “tree-hugger” – but it’s interesting at least.
There’s one reason why this doesn’t work as clothing for real people:
“I can’t even think how a environmentalist dresses other then dirty clothes and dirty hair.”
She had no respect for her client.
Instead, she came up with a bunch of pieces that had little relation to each other and no overall theme, except maybe “Little Red Riding Hood in College.”
Like we said: twee.
It’s not horrible and there are definitely points of interest, but overall, this thing just drips with condescension.
“I got an investor when I get back, so I’m good.”
So MUCH ew.
And we haven’t gotten to the outfit yet!
What’s to say? Basic tank top you could get in a bin at the kind of stores that have bins, coupled with a pair of basic athletic shorts with the added excitement of pocket innovation…
And then, to wrap up the look, something from Cher’s garage sale.
It’s two bland-beyond-belief pieces coupled with one ridiculously tacky piece. As a look, it’s not ugly enough to be interesting and not interesting enough to be ugly. It’s just a stupid, mismatched pile o’ crap.
As for Miss Thing’s attitude here, it’s of a piece with his entry this week: just not interesting enough to get worked up over.
