Iconic Dress Week 2

I have to say that I would love the chance to wear each of these iconic dresses, but my fave is the first one. I prefer simple and beautiful. Of course both are lovely but one is for a wedding :)

Grace Kelly To Catch a Thief, 1955. In a dress that rivals the beauty of her wedding gown
Grace Kelly At her wedding to Prince Rainier, 1956. Who says there's anything wrong with covering up?

Which one would you choose?

Which Iconic Dress Week 1

I am rather particular about clothes and styles, so I'd have to say Lauren and please make it turquoise blue.

What about you?

Katharine Hepburn The Philadelphia Story, 1940. From the woman who insisted on wearing trousers, an unforgettable dress worn in an unforgettable movie.
Lauren Bacall To Have and Have Not, 1944. Scandalous and skin bearing in the World War II era

Victoria's Secret Culturally Insensitive Faux Pas

This story sounds familiar?
Yes it does!!

Not everything is to be demeaned for the sake of fashion! Get more creative with your ideas peeps.

And if someone would just ask questions and do some research, they wouldn't end up doing stuff like this and then having to apologize. The photo is already live honey, there is no pulling it.

Thoughts?

The controversy began when she walked the runway wearing a Native American headdress (also called a war bonnet), a culturally insensitive faux pas that led the company to pull the footage of the offending outfit from its planned Dec. 4 broadcast. 

Several Native American groups called the lingerie company out for the blunder. 

Native Appropriations, a blog covering imagery of indigenous cultures, accused the retailer of "egregious cultural appropriation, stereotyping, and marginalizing of Native peoples." Ruth Hopkins, a columnist for a Native American news site, wrote that "after years of patronage and loyalty to the Victoria's Secret brand, I am repaid with the mean-spirited, disrespectful trivialization of my blood ancestry and the proud Native identity I work hard to instill in my children." Putting a headdress on a white model is particularly offensive, she wrote, because among the Sioux tribe, war bonnets are exclusively worn by men, with each feather symbolizing an act of valor.

To Bang in Pajamas

I must say she is rocking the bangs, but why would she choose such an ensemble?

The woman is sexy, but girl needs to hire me to dress her up! :)

And I bet that cost a pretty penny!

Stevie Wonder Could See This One Coming

I think most of us has had our little puppy love or infatuations with one person or another as we grow up.

Not that this couldn't have lasted, but with any relationship, it's best to take it with a wide open mind that anything can happen.

I'm not at all surprised nor does it even bump the scale.

So as their little bodies and minds grow up, it's only normal to feel attached to different people that shares their lives for a period of time.

Do you remember your first puppy love?
