Sass & Bide Plus Goony Bird =

What the hell is up with Sass & Bide?

This skirt is just baffling.   Shopbop, naturally, $265.   Add Goony Bird and it’s a complete nightmare.

Can anyone explain?

    hahahaha…totally silly outfit!!!btw the long thing–is it skirt or what ??–looks like sarong.oorr more like a curtain ;P thanx for making me laugh on my birthday Sister Wolf :D

  2. Ann Says:

    I can’t explain the skirt, except to suggest the designer bought too much material, never learned how to properly sew (or ruche, if that was what he/she was going for) and refused to admit it. Goony, on the other hand, is better than ever! Her hair is longer and she looks a bit wasted in that picture! She’s also really perfected her “Don’t hate me because I have scoliosis” pose!

    Ask Tamara Mellon – she’s a cunt and will supply a biting response/lawsuit/pussy. However if you ask me it is a clear case of experimental design shit due to design boredom fatigue, crossed with the fact Goony Bird is a really a mannequin positioned by a pole behind her.

    I don’t think anyone can “get this right”.

  5. Faux Fuchsia Says:

    I have never liked Sass and Bide clothing.

    The girls who design it are from my city.

    I always think the fabric quality is cheap and that it is frighteningly over priced.

    But people seem to love it and think it’s Visionary.

    MC Hammer danced so much his pants exploded. Sass & Can’t Abide took influence.

    Goony looks quite tall to me, therefor, on a person of average height this skirt would trail like Diana’s wedding dress (making it even more hideous. If that’s even possible.)

    Sass and Bide have always been too try-hard for me, this is just another shocker in a long long line of terrible shit.

    That’s a skirt???

  9. Aja Says:

    Looks like something I bought from Urban Outfitters back in my raver days. Ah shit, I’m old.

  10. Stuti Says:

    If that thing sells out, I don’t wish to be part of a world where this monstrosity is considered worthy enough to spend that much money on.

    Me too Aja, me too.

  12. Gleenn Says:

    Yes, I agree, it’s a nightmare. I would never wear such a style. :)

  13. gretchen Says:

    maybe it’s harem pants gone wrong…and those are just wrong to begin with.

  14. hammie Says:

    WTF have they styled it with?

  15. Joy D. Says:

    This would be one of the many shopbop items I gloss over quickly and ignore. I am impressed with how ugly the styling is on this one. I don’t have anything constructive to say about it. No solutions to give either….it’s just BAD.

  16. Natalea Hell Says:

    Awwww goony bird’s hair is growing! hopefully she won’t need so much hair gel anymore

  17. Kathleen the Great Says:

    How on Earth anyone thought that top/bodysuit/whatever was good to pair with the skirt I cannot fathom.
    Now, were it made from a different fabric and not with those patterns, the skirt might be wearable.
    Oh, I’m not big on the sandals with it, either.
    It’s like the stylist was playing a prank.
    I hope they were.

  18. Eliza Says:

    I could see it being worn to the Renaissance Faire as a modern update, but only if it had been hand sewn from the fabric remnants of barstool cushions.

  19. Vee Says:

    Why would anyone voluntarily wear a skirt that mimics the dreadful “static cling” look? It looks like she has some wool tights or knickers under there and has just gone for a long run on a shag carpet.

  20. Sheri Says:

    Yes, this is definitely one of those rare instances where something looks even worse on the model than it did on the hanger.

    And what model agency has hired this girl? Is bad hair a criterion? My hair looks better than this when I washed it 3 days ago and slept on it wet.

  21. That's Not My Age Says:

    Words fail me.

  22. kate Says:

    A few years back I fell in love with the Sass & Bide black rats leggings and pre-ordered a pair like a little lemming. When they came they were the worst quality polyester, had all of the charm of a ruched trashbag (w/ none of the cheapness), and were terribly poorly sewn. The skirt is at least a Home Ec C+ sewing project compared to the D- of the Rats.

  23. FROCKOLOGY Says:

    I think it would look best worn with double denim. Bad design concepts should always stick together I think.

  24. Fashion Hayley Says:

    Ahhh yes see Sass and Bide is so bad, but so many people are blinded by the hype back home in Aus and actually think of it as good design. Blerrrgggg they are my number 1 most hated “designers”, my would not wear evers.

  25. Angelica Says:

    She looks like how I feel inside.

  26. XuXu Says:

    ok.
    I have to say.
    I kind of like the skirt.
    A sort ancient times skirt crossed with a palestinian head scarf.
    But it is Ruined by the top.

    And also.
    I have limited fashion sense.

    But the bird.
    O the bird.
    You have got to love the bird.
    and the pleasure she gives to us all.

    It’s been said before but who is doing the styling? I mean that skirt and top combo is baffling, they could have put up a picture of goony with some sick on her and it would be more enticing, Do shopbop just not want to turn a profit

  28. lucinda Says:

    Thank goodness someone is able to see through the sass & bide hype. Generally they do what they do well but when it goes wrong…

  29. Hortensia Says:

    Haha, the name of the skirt is amusingly apt!

    A plea for mercy, perhaps??

  30. Alicia Says:

    This is just tragic.

  31. julie Says:

    Im pretty sure my ex boyfriend had that same outfit.
    It was a dark time…

    Anywho, oh god. Goony never fails to amaze me.
    That bitch could wear a feather headdress and a diamond thong and still have that damn smirk. And what the fuck is up with her hairline?
