Les Bons Mots

About a month ago, I was catching up on Fashion Week SS09 both in Milan and Paris and I stumbled upon some interesting lines from fave designers and attendees...

“ I love contradiction... for me, it’s where the truth really is”
Creative Director for YSL, Stefano Pilati, on his inspiration for collection

“I don’t just work for Fashion Week, I work for women. It’s really important to create pieces you wanna keep forever”
Stella McCartney on her ability to create pieces that women love time and time again.

“There is certainly a credit crunch but not a creative crunch”
John Galliano when asked about his eponymous haute couture collection.

Lastly, a convo about McQueen's collection, which was described as the 'most persuasive lesson in Fashion recycling [...]' as he reused old material like coke cans, tires and lamps to fabric from his previous collections to create an amazing & entertainig show!;
Tim Blanks: That could be the end of civilization
Linda Fargo
(of Bergdorf Goodman): *gasp* Well that would be a pretty ending though, I would go out like that!

Neat stuff eh?

Bra or no?...maybe?

Today's weather is wet and cold, no sunlight = sappy and blue... Perfect weather for me to throw on a Mack and a pair of Wellies, no make up, no cheerful smiles, just a pretty long face to go! But that wasn't even what made the day sad for me... I went out to run some errands and my body started itching. Usually it's much worse as my body itches so bad that I feel as if an army of ants are crawling all over me. I get so profane in my thoughts and the slightest glimpse of clutter I see leads me to tears ='( . There's this one commercial image of a dog sitting on a pile of snack bones that kills me when this happens... When will I find a solution? Sigh! *

***Trying to clear my mind out***

I was e-looking around and I realized that though not a new trend, some women are comfortable roaming clearly sans the baby food-holder... The Bra! 
How do you lot feel about that move? 
"Statement of Femininity" 
"Attention seeking" 
"Doesn’t even matter... Next!" 
"That’s a no-no!" (If you understand Hausa, this wasn't pun-intended, I promise. LOL)
L-R: actress Zoe Kravitz is wearing one but for???; Rihanna; Uma Thurman 
Aretha... Franklin.... 
I personally don’t fancy the visibly bra-less move. And then for some, their nips are just sooo invasive! I’m a firm believer in looking sexy yet keeping the nitty gritty details to a minimum. The universe does not have to know what your entire tatas look like. And really, the absolute least you can do is cover your nipples OR don't let the girls look like an overworked shopping bag...
