The Row’s Fall Collection was All About Practicality

In perhaps the most wearable collection to strut the runway thus far, The Row had “practicality” stamped across the full fur duty length dresses, leopard print house slippers and floor-length coats, and aggressive hunting hats. 

Are you sensing my sarcasm? You should be. The only thing practical about The Row’s collection was the outrageously large lady boner it induced into my neon tweed pants. To quote myself I will once again exclaim: Practicality doesn’t matter: when has fashion ever been about function?

Sit back, relax and enjoy the de-bone.

Tube socks, nifty.
This is the fur dress aforementioned. Could you die? Would you die? I likely wouldn’t. And not because I don’t adore this look, simply because I really like life. Suicide is bad.
Do you think she had a hard time walking the runway properly what with the enormous fur towel atop her head getting in the way of her eyesight? Whatever, the real importance here rests below the ankle where the most perfect pair of leopard print slippers adorn her feet.
Ties, ties! Yeah, yeah. Ties!
Hold on to him tight, girlfriend.

And last but not least, thrown in for good measure, I am so pleased to see that proper menswear will continue to make strides next season.

K…gotta go, love you! Bye!

    Fantastic fur pieces. It really fits the girls styles, but isn't that real? If I recall the Olsens do have a tendency to wear real fur. Ahh well it would look great as faux as well.

    Yay to proper menswear, especially with curtain tie earrings.

    can you image running around town with that on your head? I think you would have to just consider your vision as being blind on the one side! It is sooooo fabulous though. tres chic!

    I truly love the beyond excessive fur hats!! With the temps being frigid these days, I do believe donning a fur head warmer is actually….well…practical in a sense :)

    Love your blog by the way. My boyfriend peered over my shoulder the other day while I was reading one of your post and questioned the title. When he saw some of the looks he said…Yeah, I see it….

    I really love this blog and think you´re great and funny. But I can´t stand animal fur. I was hoping people would stand up or say something, but it seems that most people still that it´s ok to kill inocent animals in a terrible way just to get some furry coats.

    That´s sad. Sorry.

  • Anonymous

    I can't believe people are still wearing fur in this day and age. Those that equate it to eating meat or wearing leather are missing the point. The manner in which these animals are killed is nothing short of torture, all to preserve the fur. If you're going to wear fur, you should at least watch what the animals went through to make your fashion accessory:
