It's Not Just Fashion

Because Friendster is no longer cool and we refuse to tweet, we're making a tumblr. Delve into the terrible combination of Charlie and Marisa's minds that is: It's Not Just Fashion.

Kate Moss, how we are obsessed with thee. Kate has obviously taken some missteps in the past (drugs, boys, partying…sounds like a typical 20-something), but we have to hand it to her for the Christmas Collection for Topshop (and the accompanying campaign). Beyond creating effortless cool and shockingly affordable clothes that will be worn by many happy gals at Christmas cocktails and New Years Blow-outs, Kate modeled for her campaign. It’s like Bridget Bardot and Studio 54 had a baby in the year 2020 who loves fishnets and glitter…and we’re SOOO into it. Kate, you can do NO wrong by us (except maybe the pajamas)!

permalink So we were at the grand opening of the JC Penney flagship store in Manhattan this summer. And as we watched the models strut down the strip-mall-store-front looking runway in Charlotte Ronson’s “I Heart Ronson”  and Kimora Lee Simmons’ “Fabulosity” collections we couldn’t help but wonder: will JC Penney make it in the big apple? Then came the Cintra Wilson fiasco and we were sure they were doomed. MK & A to the rescue!! The news about their new line, Olsenboye (ew BOYLES) has taken the city by storm, along with their cupcake truck and “prune” smiles. But after looking over some of the pieces and this awesome video, we have to give it to the girls. They created a line of fun and affordable pieces that don’t try too hard. There is no threat of confusing the looks with their runway collections (a la Anna Sui) but there is no way you would know the clothes were bought at JC Penney.  The looks are classic, fun, and even your hipster cousin can wear most of the looks. Congrats to the twins, we hope to get to the closest JCP store in a New York Minute on the 6th.

PRO: Anna Sui’s Target line is inspired by Gossip Girl: Who doesn’t want to look like Blair or Serena for $39.99 to $79.99?

CON: Her line uses looks for old runway shoes: Who wants every girl across America wearing that semi-one of a kind look to…a high school dance?

PRO: You can buy it at almost any Target. Even Suzy Homemaker in East Bumbiddle can wear that Taylor Momsen vest/cover-up/balero.

CON: The line is cheaper than her regular one for a reason: the fabric is cheaper. READ: Stay away from open flames while wearing these dresses.

SOLUTION: This is exactly why we love cheap chic! Take the line for what it is, great clothes at great prices for everyone! Consider Marisa a new found “frugalista”
