Because Rowley gives a poop...

Cynthia Rowley manages to even make pantsless fabulous. Teaming with Pampers, Rowley has created a line of paisley printed diapers to assure your infant is fashionably ahead of their diaper wearing peers. With eleven different colors and styles, one that that includes a 'back pocket look', you're baby will be pooping in style.

A busy bee this year, not only has Rowley colaborated with Pampers, but she's also just come out with a line of bridesmaid dresses and shapewear.

Galliano gag me...

Galliano by John Galliano F/W 2010 Preview. Bad casting, bad styling, bad art direction, bad posing, bad bad bad bad bad. Ewww.

Three's a crowd? Well how about four?

The editors of UK Elle, British Vogue, Swedish Elle, and W Magazine all had a big surprise when they stopped at their local magazine stand this month. All four major fashion publications featured the same Miu Miu applique dress on their cover. Lorraine Candy, the editor of British Vogue explained that while it is not uncommon for the same dress to be used simultaneously on magazine covers in different countries, it is pretty much unheard of that the same dress be used on more than one magazine cover in the same country.

"In ten years of editing I have never known this to happen," she says.

So whose to blame for this blunder? It's hard to say. Miu Miu could have, in fact, broken an unwritten rule by allowing the dress to be shipped to four major publications for cover use, but it has also been speculated that perhaps one of the magazines may have been trying to one up a rival. Either way, score one for Miu Miu. As if four covers at a time wasn't enough publicity, the banter about it now will surely garner them even more attention.

The dress in question shown here in orange (dubbed Satsuma Sensation) & lilac on the runway.

The Gap's new kicks

This fall The Gap will be introducing a full collection of shoes including wedges, booties, clogs, and a collaboration with the man behind Balenciaga's stilettos, Pierre Hardy. Thus far bloggers and other online fashion critics seem to be in love. Although I give them credit for going outside The Gap box (these shoes do not at all remind me of jeans and a classic tee...) I must say the shoes themselves are a little "Jenny from the block" for me. (if you're catching what I am throwing) Who knows though, in person, they may be super chic. Way to strategize Gap- whether I actually buy the shoes or not you have found a way to get me into the store for the first time since I was 15. Now that's marketing.

Independence Day

Many happies to all for a wonderful 4th of July weekend! I know it'll be hot & you're up for being patriotic & all, but please do not make fashion victims of yourselves. It's an easy thing to do on a weekend like this. (& St. Patty's Day, Valentine's Day, Christmas, etc. etc....) Especially if you're in St. Louis & have read the Metro Mix's Fashion Ideas for the 4th of July. They're lying to you! Don't listen or you'll look terrible!
