Sorry for the lack of posting and the general un-enthusiasm toward fashion lately. It's because I cannot find a job! It is hard to think back on all the hours and torment I spent making sure I got a good GPA in college, and nobody wants to hire me for more than $7.50 an hour. But I digress.
I watched the MTV movie awards tonight in my unemployed boredom for some cheap entertainment. Sarah Silverman was ok, and WOW did she come down hard on Paris Hilton- it was hilarious. The whole crowd was cracking up and they zoomed in on Paris' face, who was giving Sarah the death stare. Classic.
There was a fair share of AWFUL dresses:
Wow, Heidi. No better way to show off the new bazongas then to wear lingerie from Frederick's...and stand next to Spencer/douche/Kewpie doll.
And Victoria...seriously? I love some Posh, I am a die hard Spice Girls fan 4 LIFE, and I can usually look past her poky-nipple-puckered-lips crazy fashion choices, but this? This pleather zebra with a bubble gum bra showing (if you look at the close-up, you can see that it is indeed a separate bra underneath)? She has all the beautiful clothing in the world within her reach, yet she chose to borrow this dress from a Vegas Strip walker.
Something else fun to see was the Old Navy commercial that played throughout the show. It previewed their fall collection, and while some of it is a little played out (colored skinny denim anyone?) some of it made me very excited.

Their trench coat and Mike & Chris style hoodie are definitely appealing. I am a fan of Old Navy for basics, and they seem to be ever-improving. I remember the days when all Old Navy had to offer was American Flag tees and ill-fitting denim shorts.
