Random Tuesday Thoughts: Two Places at Once

I’m guest posting over at CaJoh’s place today!  So please click on over.  I’m talking about

It’s also Random Tuesday Thoughts : Fashion Victim Expensive Edition.  Visit Keely, get your own Fugly button and go to town (unless you’re wearing one of these as featured in April’s W Magazine).
For all the love in the land the following ‘clothing’ choices are so confusing I thought I just had to include them in their own RTT.  Example One:
Moncler Gamme Rouge Coat
Moncler Gamme Rouge (page 68 #4)  In case you’re confused (as I was), it’s a coat.  Made of silk jacquard with feathers.  Feathers.  The price makes me want to run out and buy one today – $9,125.  Available at Bergdorf Goodman and select Barneys.
Number two is tame in comparision but I still wouldn’t shell out for these.  I don’t really care how ‘cool’ they look.
The pictures a bit blurred but it’s #7 that I’m featuring.  Citizens of Humanity Jeans.  What in the name of Humanity makes these ripped jeans $198?!?  (Page 66, #7)
This Justin Wu dress surely makes a statement.  I’m not sure which statement though: Am I a pink Duck or a dustmop?
For only $4,370 you too can decide what you are. (P.60, #3)
Okay I didn’t find all HATE in this months issue.  I liked these next two.  But let’s get real about the prices.  Lead me to the Tarjay knock-offs please! (their Liberty of London line is quite cute actually.)
Dolce&Gabbana dress (P. 54, #4) $1,995
These would also look smashing with jeans and a tank, no? (Quick who borrowed my sparkly top??)
Ralph Lauren Collection heels (P.59, #1) $1,950 (ouch)
Now normally, I really like the next designer.  Not that I’ve ever had the good grace to be able to afford anything she’s ever made.  But she’s graceful and refined.  Her clothes usually are as well.  However, this looks like she cut up my grandma’s couch.
Carolina Herrera (P.82, #9) $2,290  (I think it’s tweed maybe?)
I think they may want to check the credentials of the person who sewed this dress.  I’m not quite sure they got it right.
BCBG Max Azria (P.80, #12) $378.  Al least you don’t have to blow a grand to get this one.
And the final doozy in my Fashion Victim RTT Expensive Edition is this:
Mars called, I think they found the other half of your dress.  Akris dress (P.142) $3,990
I’m sure there’s more Fashion Victim to go around but that’s all I have time for today.  Head over to Keely’s for more Random Tuesday Thoughts.
