On Trend: Thrift Picks for Fall Winter 2009
(View full size image here)
This is what I would wear for Fall Winter 2009.
CAGED: Goth punk ribbed wool sweater to expose those tight pecs and sexy ribacages, Miu Miu ripoff of the iconic swirly tiny stud detail suede booties, Roberto Cavalli-like writhing snake cuffs.
BIKER: Rhinestone studs that look like spikes from afar with multiple chains, quilted bomber jackets which are oh so Dolce & Gabbana menswear, plaid hoodies in deep red almost black unlike those tired old dated looking bright red Scottish checks with Christmas greens or white lines to dilute the biker toughness.
ANIMALIA: It involves naked bird butts left cold and clammy after the past few seasons infatuation with peacock prints and now real peacock feathers. Do not restrict your imagination, wild tiger stripes need not be in yellows, browns and blacks only.
HOODLUM: There's a fine line between hooker and haute especially when pairing leopard print fur jackets with tights. Transform the tranny into tough young punk with rebellious striped leggings or Alice-In-Wonderland looking classic diamond tights (remember the cards?) Pair with brown or nude boots to eliminate the trash and add a Chloe ripoff to your collection designed by none other than designer whore-worthy Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes.
