No but Really

Leandra Medine | April 26, 2012
In a new practice test not unlike those proctored by College Board, I call this one: express your love for any sort of sartorial finding in 140 characters or less. I stole the foundation from twitter but at least I’m man enough to admit it. No But Really was the sentiment I chose and I think in doing that I quite well mastered the art of conjuring up grammatically incorrect sentences that somehow tread the line of social acceptability. No but really? Really? Really! This jacket, my torso. Peas in pod. Jam in jar. Eggs in uterus. Can you dig it? Black ruffle, satin motorcycle. As they I say, if it looks like a vagina, it’s probably couture. Ambiguous nether region, yes, but nonetheless one that will inevitably menstruate. Or, I don’t know, maybe it won’t. I think this just got awkward. I’m going to go. If you’re still around, do shed your light. Via LN-CC

    How could a jacket with that many ruffles NOT be man repeller worthy?!

    I actually love it, but what do I know about vaginas.

    This is the child of Natalie Portman's mean black swan and the Ramones. And a can opener, if you look at the buckle.

    Ha! I can dig it; you can dig it; we can all dig it.

    Haha, I love your comment how if it looks like a vagina, it's probably couture. That's so accurate! Have you seen the Meadham Kerchoff press on nails with a vagina pattern yet?

    Grammatically incorrect jacket, I would say. I was about to say lovely but that'd be rude, right?

  • Marle

    Wow, so gorgeous! A more than perfect addition to my closet I'd say!

    The only way that jacket could be better is if it were pink.

    If I were to die and come back as someone's writings, it would be yours. You're a funny bird.

  • Luna

    "No, but really." I think that sums it up nicely. 😉

    You still crack me up. I'll tune in (with a turban on) if Laughternoon with Leandra ever airs.

    I'd rock it – especially in a wild color. Orange. Hot pink. PLAID. BRING IT.

  • Erika Pontes

    This would be awesome with a long gown! fancy party + biker jacket = duh!

    jeans and converse would work too i think!

  • Lydia

    No but really, someone buy me that.

  • Ms.Fashionista

    a weird vagina, in my opinion.

    "If it looks like a vagina, it's probably couture" apparently Grimes took this literally

  • absenceofalternatives

    I think we need a bumper sticker for this line "As they I say, if it looks like a vagina, it's probably couture." This has got to be my favorite quote from any fashion blog/article/magazine/theories/critique ever.
