This dramatic and frightening Thakoon “bustle skirt” greeted me at Shopbop this morning, only to disappear by midnight. What the fuck?! Did it turn back into a pumpkin, or did it sell out in one day? You need to see the back view to imagine the effect you might have had, sweeping into a room or tripping and falling as the case may be.
I believe it is taffeta, and the price was around $2,000 I think.
What is the point of it? All I could think of to wear with it was a basket of fruit on the head. Maybe it’s a wry tribute to the mullet!
Well, now that it’s gone, I feel a vague sense of loss.
So let me tempt you with another great new “piece” from Shopbop:
They are sheer silk chiffon layered with matching shorts. They would also look nice with some fruit on the head. I like the way these gossamer pants are styled with clunky leather boots. It’s an aggressive statement that says, “I am a visionary, you know nothing!” They are a steal at only $225.
