    looks like they cut the ends off a sleeping bag.


  2. Dru Says:

    It looks like they cut the top half off a parka and repurposed the rest.

    Don’t shoot me, but I think it might actually work with a t-shirt or something if it wasn’t for the stupid drawstring.

    I just wish Gooney would get a proper job and leave show business (ha!) to the experts.

  4. Danielle Says:

    tent pegs.

  5. Sister Wolf Says:

    Danielle – Hahahahahahahaha!

    Andra – Poor Goony, they’re making her stand straight and it’s killing her.

    That is the kind of thing the “funky” mums wear around here for the school run. With the red birkenstocks or flat maryjanes, for maximum frumptasticness. Very late 90s/turn of the millennium. I think we can expect a lot more of this as the Gen Ys discover the Prada Sport era and its offshoots.

    I used to jump out of planes with that skirt on my back, or at least, something very like it!

    woah woah woah, no no no.

    I like it.
    It’s over priced – but hey, not compared with other stuff you’ve had on here.

  11. Cricket9 Says:

    I know now what was missing from my life! Obviously, eco-messaged (messaged, not massaged, y’all) embroidery!

  12. Kate Says:

    Ha – yup, that is not nice.

    But I love that Sam is sticking her neck out here with a yes vote! It’s scary when eveyone is just:

    …adult diapers?

    Or rather, it would be perfect to wear with your adult diapers because no one would ever suspect!

  14. Aja Says:

    I had something like this in high school. I’m amazed at how my high school styles are recirculating. Must mean I’m getting old.

  15. Ann Says:

    What the hell is that!? Not only is the skirt ugly, but those shoes are all wrong for it. Although, I can’t actually picture any shoe that would be right for it.

  16. Ruth Johnston Says:

    yuck .. xx

  17. TheShoeGirl Says:

    Patent leather knee high spats? 😉

  18. Tanya Says:

    …a ticket to Europe. Pack accordingly, throw it on your back, and you’re ready to hoof the streets of Prague, or whatever is en vogue nowadays.

  19. kirsten Says:

    you could take it off after a camping trip and pack your sleeping bag right back into it! brilliant.

    A dead Libian

    (if it were 1999)

  22. drollgirl Says:

    this skirt is a piece of shit.

  23. The Bad Kate Says:

    I liked the original better – one of the few Alexander Wang pieces I’ve ever seen and loved. What was that, summer 2010? The “football” season. I don’t think the “paint splatters” and camouflage yoke on this ripoff piece are adding value.

  24. kate Says:

    oh come on, this skirt is too easy.

  25. Debbie Says:

    some kindling inside the drawstring and a match for your m.r.e.

  26. Sister Wolf Says:

    Kirsten – True, but then they should sell it as a sleeping bag!

    Drollgirl – Bingo.

    Debbie – Hahahahahahahahha!

  27. Sarah-Rose Says:

    … kerosene and a match

  28. Andra Says:

    Drollgirl – succinct and right to the heart.
    Nice one!

    This is why I think fashion hates women, like it is mocking us

  32. Zaradoodle. Says:

    This skirt would look good with fuck all, it’s bloody hideous.

  33. Winterbird Says:

    Birkenstocks and hairy arm pits.

  34. danno Says:

    Totally whatever. Not for my cankles, thank-you-very-much.

  35. ann hooker Says:

    a diaper. “Oops! I crapped my pants” skirt now on special for every pack of diapers sold!

  36. Deena Says:

    …… as a sleeping bag for my cat and his girlfriend.

  37. Kathleen Says:

    ….finally, something uglier to wear than Birkenstocks…..

  38. Cami Says:


    There are too many things wrong with this, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. Actually no, white girl/terrible styling – get this shit off! Get rid of the embroidery and that contrast panel yoke bullshit and maybe a tiny Japanese girl with 68 layers could rock it. Even then, questionable.
